My impressions of the suite is that it was lovely. It's very clean and the decor is very nicely decorated . The host's are great people, and are very accommodating. The neighborhood is pretty new in a nice area. I wouldn't hesitate on staying there on my next visit out west.

Sparkling clean, absolutely beautiful suite with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over a 2 week period with my son who was there for hockey. I am very particular about where we stay, and this suite is awesome! It has lots of space and everything you need, for short or long term. I particularly appreciated the in suite laundry and full kitchen. It is in a very quiet location, easy access, and the owners are very, very nice people. They take wonderful care of the property and do everything to insure you are comfortable and have what you need. We enjoyed our time there, and will definitely plan to stay here again if we return to the area!

Clean and Upscale

  • 5 of 5

My kids are figure skaters, and so we rented this property for 3 weeks in August to allow them to train in Burnaby. It is the perfect place for busy travelers to rest away from the bustle of the city, but close enough to the large mall and great restaurants that you can shop and dine out easily. The beds are comfy, the space is clean and bright, the kitchen is handy and perfect for cooking simple healthy meals, and the community is lovely. We were kind of high maintenance guests - we needed to have my daughter's skating costume shipped to us, and customs levied a fee on the parcel - the owners of the home accepted the package, and paid the customs fee (we of course paid them back) which was really appreciated. When my daughter's skates were stolen out of my car in downtown Vancouver, the kindness of the owners really showed through. Kathryn even offered to loan her some figure skates of her own!! She also promptly sent me an email with ideas on places to call in case the skates were sold to local sport shops. We sadly had to cut the trip short since we were out of luck with the skates, but would not hesitate to rent this place again as our "home away from home" next time we come for training. Not only is it comfortable, but knowing that the owners are kind and thoughtful people who truly care about their guests made all the difference.

A home from home....

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were expecting great things from the property and we were definitely not disappointed. We had just arrived to start our new lives in Canada and this was to be our home for 6 weeks, coming from overseas we had nothing apart from clothes with us but we didn't need anything because this suite has it all (and it really does!). Kathryn provided everything that you would need to start living in the suite which meant we didn't have to stress about the little things to start with. The suite is incredibly clean, tidy and spacious and most importantly it is very light for a basement suite. The kitchen appliances are great quality and well maintained, the beds are very comfortable and the garden was large (a bonus for us with a young child). Kathryn couldn't have been a nicer host, she helped us settle into our new lives and was there if and when we needed her. There are plenty of amenities near by and the large mall is a short drive. I would highly recommend this suite and the hosts to all.

The place was spacious and clean with modern amenities close by as advertised. Owners were very helpful and we would definitely recommend to anyone. Enjoyed close access to the Port Coquitlam mall and many other shopping areas as well as many fine restaurants, bakeries, delis, etc... San Remos has wonderful food.
