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 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!

The bathroom features a 2 person soaker tub with air jets, a rain style shower and heated floors.

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.

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 Vancouver

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.

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

The hosts, Mark and Geraldine, were super accommodating and very friendly. My husband and I felt comfortable immediately. The suite was super clean, well cared for, and everything was up-to-date. The kitchen came well equipped with everything one might need for cooking in. I especially loved the garden walkway up to the front door...the setting was perfect. Every day was a different adventure, and it was always a nice feeling to return "home" in the evening! We loved it!!!

We were very happy with choosing Mark & Geraldines Suite for our stay in Vancouver.

Everything was as described, even better! The Suite is new with nice interior. Very well and fully equipped. Slept comfortably. Good and quiet neighborhood with everything you need in walking distance and good connections to go downtown.

Mark and Geraldine are nice and helpful. We followed restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood and enjoyed nice food.

Overall very recommended. Thanks Geraldine & Mark for hosting us.

Lovely place - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The suite is well designed, modern, light, clean, and was a very enjoyable place to stay for my weekend in Vancouver. The lighting design in the bedroom was amazing - dimmers, spots, and uplighting; the bathroom fixtures, tile work, lighting - all beautifully done. The kitchen sink was cute and efficient - love the built-in stainless steel drain board; thank you for the electric hot pot and tea choices. Great place for a single or couple.
