Richard The purchased this apartment in 2014
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.
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.
This property was perfect for our stay. It was very neat and had everything one should need. The convenience to transit was wonderful. I would recommend this place to others.
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.
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.
All you will need for a visit to van. Great location close to restaurants and sky train. The Dutch breakfast restaurant on Cambia and the British sports bar have outstanding food. No need to cook with all the great places to eat. We walked to Stanley park.
We were greeted by Richard on arrival who kindly let us check in early. The TV had broken that morning and he and his son in law were quick to ensure we had a brand new set the same day! The apartment is small but beautiful, very clean with all you could ask for of a week long stay. The area is lovely and quiet and was ideal for walking to the children's hospital as I required. Getting downtown is really easy from the sky train station a few minutes walk away and is cheap and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment as a place to stay. Richard has been a wonderful host and many thanks for allowing us early and late check in/out, it has made our trip so much easier!!
The apartment was exactly as described, spotlessly clean, close to everything we needed and in a great neighborhood. We were in Vancouver to visit our new grandson, my husband was away on business for several days and I felt completely secure on my own. The added touches provided by our wonderful host Richard were an added bonus. Milk, tea, coffee, banana bread, fruit and the staple condiments were all provided including shampoos and soaps. The Canada Line was a short walk away and afforded quick trips to Vancouvers downtown waterfront. We visit Vancouver every year and now maybe more and would definitely stay here again.
5 minute walk to Cambie Village, Queen Elizabeth Park and King Edward Canada Line station and 10 minute walk SOMA village, Hillcrest Community centre, Nat Bailey Stadium, Women's and Children's Hospital.
