Fantastic family friendly accommodation in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We used to live near Trout Lake so it was sort of like coming home when we stayed at this suite! Our girls were so excited when they discovered that Jen had left them some Christmas treats, great books to read and several fun games - definitely a nice touch. The suite itself was perfect for our family of 4 and was very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect - right across from Trout Lake and close to Commercial Drive, and even though it is right on Victoria Drive, it was quite quiet since it is the back unit. Thanks again Jen for a great stay - we'll be back!

Beautiful and Very Comfortable Suite!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Parkside Suite in early September and absolutely loved it! The suite was nicely renovated and was very bright, clean, spacious and very well-stocked. The owners Jen and Jean were so awesome! They were very welcoming and always available if we had any questions, but gave us total privacy too. They also shared lots of information about Vancouver and forwarded suggestions re things to do in the area. The location of the suite was incredible – right across the street from Trout Lake where we went for walks, took the dog to the park, had a picnic, and worked out at the great gym in the community centre. Just a few blocks from the Skytrain and buses, too, so it was very easy to get downtown and elsewhere. We loved the Commercial drive area, so many great shops and restaurants. We are definitely going to come back to the Parkside Suite next time we are in Vancouver! Steve and Sue from Canmore.

Neat, practical and very complete suite!

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my first time in Vancouver in Parkside Suite; we arrived by car and found the place to be in a very nice neighborhood and just perfect for the 4 of us with the 3 bedrooms with comfy beds and sufficient space to hang out. We didn't need to use the public transportation because of the car rental, but found downtown to be a short 10-15 min drive. The Trout Lake park just across the street has beautiful views and is well worth the walk to get a grasp of local life. With supermarkets very close by, and Commercial Drive around the corner, the suite is very practical and it easily makes you feel at home. Jen was very kind and helpful with tips around the city and nearby local favorites as well. Thanks a lot for a lovely stay!!!

Gorgeous, new, spacious suite near Trout Lake Park!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend at the brand-new Parkside Suite with our daughter, our dog, and our friends (another couple and their son). It sounds like a full house, but the suite was more than big enough for all of us. Our friends stayed in the bigger bedroom with their 5-year-old, we stayed in the second bedroom, and our 13-year-old daughter got the third bedroom (which doubles as an office) all to herself. We've stayed at Jen's and Jean's other property on the other side of the park before, so we knew that we would find everything we needed at the new suite. As always, there were toys, movies, and sporting equipment for the kids, a fully stocked kitchen with all of the things we needed to make a couple of full meals (with the fresh wild salmon, lettuce, and fruit that we picked up from the Saturday farmer's market across the street!), and the loveliest linens and furnishings. When you want to get away for a few days, there's nothing better than a beautiful space with owners who so warmly welcome you and your kids and your dog. For our second trip in a row staying with Jen and Jean, we found that we loved the Trout Lake area so much that we didn't even end up going to downtown, Stanley Park, or Granville Island (but for those who want to venture out, there's a super convenient train five minutes away). Trout Lake Park has everything we wanted - tennis courts, a kids' play area, and farmer's market. Parkside Suite is now officially our regular rental spot for our weekends away from Seattle!

A Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a restful stay in this beautiful newly renovated suite. Every detail is attended to by the owners Jen and Jean who were extremely helpful and welcoming. The suite is off the street, so very quiet, and the beds are luxurious – all making for a great night's sleep. There are some great restaurants nearby and it's right near the Trout Lake Park. A brand new smart TV with cable and Netflix meant I was able catch up on some of my favourite shows while relaxing after a busy day. The suite is spacious enough for a large family or small group. I'm looking forwarding to visiting again, next time with my wife and kids.
