About Mark Gruft

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

Why Mark Gruft chose East Side

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.

Perfect location, beautiful neighborhood, close to all amenities and a spotless home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I could not have found a more suitable location in East Vancouver. A short walking distance to the colorful Commercial Drive and with transportation options close by to various parts of the city. The place was very cozy and spotless and the owners were available to help us immediately with any of our needs. If we return to Vancouver this will be our go to home away from home.

Great Stay in East Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean and modern suite well located in quiet neighborhood in East Vancouver. Well equipped kitchen. Bright and comfortable living area and bedroom. Large built-in closets and drawers to store clothing out of the way. Close to Commercial Drive, Trout Lake, and public transit. Friendly and accessible host. Stayed five nights in September, would not hesitate to stay even longer in future. Great value for money.

lovely property and beautiful well apointed suite. Would definaltely return.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't actually spend much time there as we were doing the Vancouver thing with a daughter who rents part of a 'Vancouver special ' about a dozen blocks away, near commercial. That area is interesting, with a number of funky restaurants and cafe's, and the back streets here are quiet and tree lined. You are some distance from the downtown, though the bus system is quite easy to navigate.

Best bang for your buck in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Lots of room, tastefully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen. Loved that it was VERY clean with lots of room to place our things and that parking was not a problem. The location is great as the bus stop is just a stone throw away and only a ten minute ride to downtown.
