Really great stay for our family of 5 (three small children)

  • 4 of 5

This place was really great, especially for the price. The owner was very helpful and responsive. The place was warm and fit most our needs perfectly. My only complaint was that it wasn't very well stocked. There was only enough laundry detergent for one load, one load of dishwasher detergent, and we were only supplied with a partial paper towel roll and one toilet paper roll. None of this was the end of the world but it was definitely inconvenient to have to restock. I'm sure it was just a mistake, but that's the reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. Great place and would definitely recommend.

Great Location to explore Vancouver

  • 4 of 5

We received all the relevant information prior to our arrival, directions and access codes etc.

Upon our arrival at the premises we met the owner and his family, we then quickly settled into the spacious, clean, well maintained and well equipped basement suite.

The premises is in a great location with a number of supermarkets, liquor stores and shops near by. It is approximately 200metres from Cates Park beach area, it is just a couple of minutes drive to Deep Cove and all major highways to quickly get to the tourist attractions in and around Vancouver area. There is a public bus service which runs at the end of the street which gives you easy access to the surrounding area's.

As previous reviews have stated you can hear the children ( future Olympians) running around upstairs when they first wake in the morning but this did not detract from what was a fantastic vacation.

BC is there to be explored and these premises are in a great location to do that, we would certainly return and use these facilities in the future and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice, spacious, and clean. It had all the comforts of home. It doesn't seem like a basement because it has a walkout to the backyard and lots of windows. We didn't spend much time in our suite, but it would be perfect for an extended stay. It is in a very nice neighbourhood in North Vancouver and the drive to downtown was not bad at all. It is located in a great spot if you are getting away to Squamish or Whistler for the day because you avoid the traffic getting out of downtown. Some attractions we liked were the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, with Shannon Falls right next to it. Also, I would recommend the Capilano Suspension Bridge (not far from this house), with the Treetop and Cliff Walk. And in VanCity, I enjoyed the Fly Over Canada simulation exhibit at Canada Place. I would recommend this spot to anyone who doesn't want to be right in the centre of the city. To top it off, the owners upstairs seem very nice. Thanks Alain and Michelle!

Bright, ground level suite with good access to transportation routes and parks.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Ruch's suite for a month between April 27th and May 27, 2016. Most rooms in the suite are large, modern and clean. The kitchen is well stocked and has a dishwasher, washer and dryer. The master bedroom was nicely appointed with a walk in closet and comfy queen bed. There are two other bedrooms, one with a queen bed and another with bunk beds. The suite is ground level, so is light and bright and has its own private entrance. Parking is on the street but the neighbourhood is very quiet.

The only comments we have are that when showering or bathing, the fan didn't seem to remove the humidity and there was a bit of a shortage of bathroom hand towels and kitchen cloths/towels.

As another renter mentioned, if you are in Vancouver and want to sleep in past 7:30 AM, this is not the place for you! Alain has three wonderful, active children who obviously do what kids do! Alain will likely discuss this with you this when you inquire, and he is very upfront about it. The kids are charming... Pets are welcome and our small dog actively chased Alains two cats in the fenced backyard.

The location is perfect with easy access to main transportation routes, hiking, parks and all that Vancouver has to offer.

We would definitely rent this property again!

Great location, lots of space

  • 4 of 5

The location is good and easy to get around Vancouver from, a nice neighbourhood so you have the best of both worlds - downtown access and a space to retreat to. It is clean, spacious and functional. The beds are super cozy and warm. There are kids upstairs so if you're early risers and are out on the town late, it would be awesome. It is loud with footsteps, chairs and running feet early in the morning and at night!
