We have a lovely ground level suite in our house just 15 minutes walk to restaurants, bars and shopping on Commercial Drive, and to a major transit hub that can take you Downtown, to The University of BC, or to the airport, or if you prefer, a 50 metre walk to the nearest bus stop which will have you downtown in 20 minutes.
A 20 minute walk to some of the best live theatre in Canada at The Cultch.
A 15 minute walk to beautiful Trout Lake for a stroll or picnic.
A 25 minute walk to the up and coming East Village at Hastings St for more great eating and drinking. This is in short, a great neighbourhood!
Our 1 bedroom suite comes with a full kitchen and everything you need to enjoy it should you desire to. There is Wifi, a flat screen Smart TV, cd and dvd player as well. The bedroom comes with a Queen bed and ample closet space.
The bathroom features a 2 person soaker tub with air jets, a rain style shower and heated floors.
Regretfully, we ** DO NOT ** offer a washer and dryer. There is a laundromat nearby with drop-off service.
There is a lovely garden outside the suite entrance with a place to sit and enjoy the sunset.
The house is a quiet place, so you will be guaranteed to be able to rest well.
There is ample free parking on the street in front of our house.
Mark and Geraldine are both Vancouver born and raised, but well traveled. We live in the property and take pride in it. We are proud to show off our city and look forward to helping you enjoy it!
Mark Gruft purchased this house in 2014
We bought this house together after we got married. The previous owners did a fantastic job of renovating this character home and it was obvious how much love they had put into it. It's a great neighbourhood not only for it's location but for the diversity of the people, who are friendly and welcoming.
I stayed in this suite mid week while working downtown. A very well equipped unit with all the comforts of home. Mark was very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely recommend this suite.
My husband and I loved staying at Marks place. The amenities were amazing: heated floors, large jetted tub, Netflix, and a small kitchenette. Had everything we needed for a nice Vancouver getaway. Would definitely stay here again!
Overall the place was comfortable for a one week stay. However there were a number of disappointments. The kitchen supplies were very limited.
Upon arrival it would have been nice to have had at least a small bar of soap to take a shower, not the case! The four cups, plates etc. hardly encouraged us to have our children over since we could not even offer a cup of tea. No containers for leftovers. No laundry facilities on site, the nearest laundromat was five blocks away. By the end of the week the two bath towels, which were not changed, were looking a bit tired. Street parking may be the norm for Vancouver, but with the snow and ice we found it quite bothersome and hindered access to the lodgings. Also, and not under the control of our hosts, there was a lengthy power outage. Although we were provided with candles and a flashlight nothing was done to reflect the added cost and inconvenience of having to take an additional meal at the restaurant.
We have stayed at a number of vacation rentals and our level of satisfaction has always been greater than our experience here. It is unlikely that we would recommend this place.
We recently enjoyed two weeks at this well appointed garden level suite. Mark met us upon arrival and oriented us to all the features. This one bedroom suite is well decorated with speedy wi-fi, a flat screen TV with good cable with access to Netflix, a small stereo and an excellent selection of books to read. We enjoyed many meals here and the kitchen has all the appliances and all the pots, pans and cutlery to cook any kind of meal. The bed and bedding were comfy and the bathroom had a deep tub with a rainwater shower head. The suite is a fifteen minute walk from Commercial Drive and the train and about the same to East Hastings and both of these areas are rife with great shops and restaurants. All in all this is a great place to stay.
Very nicely appointed suite w all we needed for a comfortable stay while visiting town. Comfortable bed and nice kitchen supplies for light cooking. Also a really nice neighbourhood w lots of good food nearby.
I loved the upgraded feel of this charming boutique home, quite neighborhood and friendly family. Will be referring others! Mahalo from Hawaii

This is a moderately quiet house. Entertaining guests during your rental is fine and normal enjoyment is encouraged, but absolutely no partying! Quiet required by 10pm as this is a family neighbourhood.
