About Brigitte & Bernie Heeb

Bernie is born in Lucerne and Brigitta is born in Basel, after immigrating to Canada in 1976 we found our home in beautiful Vancouver.

Being raised in Switzerland we enjoy and love sharing the nature and hospitality of the place we live with people from all over the world. We have traveled to many places in Europe and North America and know how important it is to have comfortable and nice accommodations, to rest in a clean and quite place.

Bernie owned his own sewing machine store. Bernie enjoyed the interactions with his customers. At Simon Fraser University Brigitta was a student advisor, where she supported and guided national and international students for over 20 years.

We are fluent in Swiss German, German, French and English.

Come stay with us and you will be thrilled.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son (16) & daughter (13) rolled into town for a Figure Skating competition and wanted something close to the rink, but not too close! (19 minutes to Burnaby 8 Rinks & Fortius for all your skating/sports families out there).

We also had our Mini Schnauzer with us so pet-friendly was a must for us as she is part of the family.

Bridgetta & Bernie welcomed us at the door and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The kids were so happy as there was awesome Wifi & a flat screen TV (Teenagers ** sigh **)

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need - The private patio is also wonderful for enjoying a morning coffee, or with a glass of wine in the evening. My husband BBQ'd most nights so that kept him happy :)

Bernie plays the Alpine Horn, amongst other instruments and hearing that in the evenings was lovely and to our delight, amazingly soothing.

Swiss Paradise is exactly as it is depicted in the photos & write up. Lovely, sparkling clean and inviting with all the comforts of home. Comfy beds and fluffy towels what more could you need! We recommend it to everyone.

Thank you to our amazing hosts, we truly enjoyed our stay immensly and hope to return next year.

Thank you and see you in 2018.

We welcome you all back any time! Thank you and we hope to see you in 2018, Brigitta & Bernie

Spacious, private, safe walk out suite. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts in a beautiful area/community. Many million dollar homes. Easy access to highways which can bring you to Vancouver / Richmond, etc. Expect 30 min drives one way if you are going that way.

Suite is great. Clean. Stocked kitchen.

Does not have an indoor dining table, but you get a generous kitchen island, and (if weather permits) use of the outdoor dining table.

Tons of patio backyard space with loungers and cushions.

Inside has full use laundry.

Did get hot during the day as it lacked ac. Not a huge deal as we had a fan.

Nearby is Mundy Park, and it may be the most amazing off leash dog trail park I've ever seen.

It was great and clean and as at home

  • 5 of 5

Unit was great. It really feels like Swiss quality in every corner. Great huge porch/terrace with BBQ. Very quiet. Great for staying with kids. All you need for cooking is there. Very clean and fresh.

Very positive owners and we liked ceremony at the end of our stay with national Swiss music played on alphorn.

The only item we mentioned to owners is mattresses on beds could be better and it would be great to have king size bed in master bedroom, as room size permit.

Wonderful suite, perfect location only 20 Minutes to Downtown Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful, clean and spacious suite with all one needs. It is located in a upscale residential area, however close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment within a short drive. The new skytrain takes you directly from Coquitlam Center to Downtown Vancouver.

The host and hostess are very helpful and kind people. Bernie plays the Swiss alphorn and accordion, which we enjoyed listening to. It was very practical that pets are allowed, as we always travel with our dog.

There is a lovely patio to enjoy and a beautiful view to the mountains. I would recommend this suite to all my friends!
