Private Vacation Suite - Prime Location
average rating of 4.75 based on 52 reviews

We had a very pleasant stay and Caroline was very helpful in orienting us to the neighborhood.

  • 3 of 5

The unit would have been perfect for 2 adults, but as we were 3 adults we found it a little cramped, especially when it came to trying to eat a meal at the kitchen counter together.

It is central and made sight-seeing easy because of it's location.

loved the space and the hostess was most accommodating

  • 5 of 5

The space was very clean and suitable.

Very convenient to restaurants and public transportation yet still in a suburban experience.

Only 3-4 miles to center of Vancouver.

The host was very accommodating and helpful.

Charming, lower level apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The best part was the owner, Caroline, who spent an hour with us after we first arrived. She not only answered all our questions about the rental, but provided information on places to eat, how to access the public transit, where to shop, and how to get to Victoria for a day trip. (Follow her suggestions. They were very good.) She was available throughout our stay to answer our questions, and even provided us with a transit card for our convenience. She does ask that you restore the card to its original value when you are done.

The lower level apartment was charming and immaculate, perfect for two. Although there is a pull out sofa for additional seating, I would not recommend this place for 4 people. It would be a bit crowded. It is located in a very attractive and safe neighborhood, just a short walk to beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park (don't miss it!) The walk to stores, restaurants and public transportation is a 10 minute walk, not for those with ambulatory problems, but great for anyone else. The owners live upstairs and were never a problem. She even plans her own housecleaning for when you are out of the apartment. Noise was never a problem.

Staying here was convenient to downtown Vancouver via public transit, and considerably cheaper than downtown hotels. We did not use our car once during our stay.

We loved this small apartment and would gladly stay here again during a future visit.

Great experience with our first VRBO stay.

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay at this property. From start to finish, the experience was great. Caroline was a lot of fun and helpful to the point where it made our entire stay in Vancouver a memorable one. Several times we just visited and she helped us with how to get around town and recomended several places to see. When my wife broke a nail and needed some quick help of where to go, she recommended her favorite place, which was walking distance away.

The property was much more than expected. Very clean and a fully equiped kitchen was available. Bathroom, bedroom and living area with couch was top notch. Very comfortable and felt like home. Would definitely recommend to others.
