About Richard The

We are retired professional couple and long-time residents of Metro Vancouver. We’ve raised our two daughters in Richmond and now, we, our daughters and four grandchildren reside in the Westside of Vancouver.

Richard The purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Richard The chose Vancouver

We bought this property in 2009 because of its ideal location as one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Vancouver, BC. It is a central, quiet and safe neighbourhood with many amenities within walking distance. As well, with Canada Line King Edward train station only 4 minutes walk, we can reach most of Vancouver major sites and YVR in less than 20 minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

In 2012, we built a self-contained laneway house (a separate building) on the rear of the property facing the lane.

In July 2014, we completed the building of our new main house with three separate living units, including the garden suite. These contemporary living units have private entrances and sound barriers. For maximum comfort, this house has two separate mechanical systems including 2 boilers for in-floor radiant heating and 2 large indirect hot water tanks and 2 HRV with air filtration systems.

Fantastic stay in Vancouver.

  • 5 of 5

Richard's suit, was excellent. Very clean, and comfortable. Made our stay in Vancouver very enjoyable. Very convienant via train from the airport and into Vancouver city. Extra's were much appreciated, bowl of fruit, packet of muffins and milk in the fridge. This all added to our stay. Will be recommending this accomadation to friends that we know are coming to Vancouver.

Would reccomend Kino Tapas bar, about a 5 min walk, Steve the owner was friendly, the have live entertainment most nights, great food at a great price.

Thank you both for looking after us..

Cozy condo - perfect for a weekend getaway in yvr!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little condo - extremely clean and well appointed. Perfect for a single or couple. Large bright windows and a great little kitchen to make breakfast or snacks in. Really good location - close to the skytrain. Allowed us to see a different part of Vancouver we had never experienced. Cambie Village is cool and Main Street is a quick walk over with a lot of great restaurants. Highly recommend staying here!

You can't find better.

  • 5 of 5

On its own this suite is worth it. Clean, bright, comfortable, quiet, stylish. But add in its proximity to transit (literally 3 minutes to the King Edward Train Station), parks and high streets it would be tough to find anything better.

Richard and Janis were great hosts. Very accommodating of our needs and kind enough to supply us with a few bonuses that made our arrival and stay so much easier.

Kitchen - (has everything you would need to make a good meal)

Living Room - (comfy sectional, cable tv, wifi, lots of windows)

Bedroom - (ensuite laundry, storage, comfy bed)

Bathroom - (clean, bright, well stocked)

Assuming availability my wife and I will definitely stay here on our next trip to Vancouver.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We liked staying here! It was convenient, in a great location, close to the train, and in great condition. Richard went the extra mile to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible.

The drawbacks were that cell phone reception was spotty - we had to go outside to make any calls. Also, the parking out front is limited during the day, so we had to move our vehicle a couple blocks away. Nothing major and definitely manageable, but might not work for some.
