The house was immaculate and met all our needs. The neighborhood was beautiful! I would highly recommend The Haddon House.

We were surprised when we saw the refrigerator was full stock with food and beverages. Our kids loved to play with Clara (the doggie). It was a super great experience and value-for-money to stay in such heritage house.

                                                                    Fabulous House

We traveled from California for a family event with all ages and it was the perfect accommodation. Plenty of parking, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, lots of room for 7 adults. Easy to get into Vancouver for sight seeing, close to grocery, restaurants, shopping mall and freeways if you're staying in Burnaby. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend it.
