About Sascha Westendorp

We are a German-Canadian family of 4. We moved to Vancouver in 1998 and fell in love with the City.

Our 2 daughters attend the local High Schools and they as well speak English and German!

Sascha Westendorp purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Sascha Westendorp chose Vancouver

We love what Vancouver has to offer - one of the most 'versatile' cities in the world. The area where we live is on a hill and you have a view of the mountains. You never really have the feeling you live right in the city.

Being so close to the mountains, the forest, the beaches and downtown is truly unique!

What makes this apartment unique

Our house has a lush garden for you to enjoy, the view of the mountains and a big park just 1 minute away.

Gentle Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband, grown daughter and I stayed 2 nights in Sascha's sweet suite and were very glad we did. It is situated in a nice part of Vancouver, has a lovely little garden to enjoy on sunny days, and is clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. Our daughter slept well on the pull-out couch as well. Sascha is kind and friendly and obviously cares that her guests are happy. If we ever need to, we would definitely try to stay there again. Thank you to Sascha!

Sasha and family have a lovely home and they were very helpful.

Wonderful place for my husband and I to stay as we were right down the road from our friends. We had our own place yet could easily walk to our friends and walk to the villages.

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great people in a beautiful and comfortable basement apartment with plenty of natural light. Has its own access through a lovely garden. Being close (1 mile away) to Pacific Spirit park was icing on the cake.

Lovely gem in a really wonderful little neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

This property is totally a mini home away from home. An easy place to relax inside or outside in the beautiful back garden. It even has a book exchange box in the backyard alleyway. Sascha & her family made us feel very welcome & well cared for during our getaway. The suite was squeaky clean & exceptionally well appointed.

Wonderful place to stay in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the garden suite, and it was perfect. Sascha was a wonderful host; she greeted us, gave us the tour, and was available when we needed anything. She provided a pack and play for our 18 month old daughter and even left some of her own (and now grown) kids' toys for her to play with. Our daughter loved her dog, Niko, and wanted to play with him whenever she got the chance. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we used the shared laundry a couple of times. The garden is lovely, and we took advantage of it during the couple days that were sunny and warm. It's a great location with plenty of parking, and there are shops, restaurants, and a nice park nearby. We had a bit of trouble with wifi in the bedroom (living room was fine), but Sascha said that they were working on getting more coverage. Overall, it's a clean, comfortable, and lovely place to stay!

Secret garden sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

The time spent at this property was wonderful. Our host had mimosa fixings waiting for us and after we chatted with her more (complimenting her BEAUTIFUL home and STUNNING garden), she mentioned she has just baked some rhubarb cake -- yum. We also loved having her sweet golden retriever, Niko, around in the yard.

The space was perfect for 3, two in the bed and one on the fold out couch. You could hear people walking above -- but that never bothered us.

If you choose to stay here, make sure you have enough time in your visit to simply enjoy the garden. I loved having my morning coffee in the hammock just listening to the birds chip and the smelling the flowers.

Simply put -- our stay was outstanding.
