About Alan Cook

We are retired, long term Vancouver residents. We travel extensively and have stayed at many Home Away suites worldwide. We know how we like to be treated and we aspire to deliver that hospitality to our visitors. We have designed and stocked our suite with everything to make your home away from home pleasant to return to after a days sightseeing or just relaxing at home. Our most common guests are parents visiting their grown children in Vancouver. Visitors have said they enjoy the relaxed, quiet residential neighborhood while also being close to the city and all amenities.

Alan Cook purchased this apartment in 1976

Why Alan Cook chose West Side

The house is a 75 year old classic Vancouver single family residence. We live on the main and second floor. We bought this property for the long term and have raised two children here who are now adults and have left home leaving us with space to rent. We like the fact it's as close to the city as you can get without the noise and hustle of downtown. The park across the street is a lovely addition and walks on the beach have always been a favorite activity.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home has been recently renovated throughout with modern conveniences. The garden suite has a private entrance and although two steps below grade, retains an airy and bright atmosphere. We have paved areas to be used as patios in the summer.

Great little suite!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this suite while we were attending a wedding at the Brock house. My wife was pregnant at the time and it was nice and close to the venue so she could head home a little early. The suite itself has everything that we needed, and the hosts were very gracious. It was nice and private in a very beautiful residential neighbourhood. I would definitely recommend the suite to anyone looking for a nice little quiet spot.

Excellent suite!

  • 5 of 5

Alan is a very welcoming host. His suite is lovely and has everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. Parking accessible right on the street in front of the property. Easy part of town to get around and less than 10 minutes to Kits beach!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

- we enjoyed our stay very much!

- Alan our host was very pleasant, very interesting, very accommodating.

- the apartment is well located; easy access to public transport, lots of great places to eat within walking, close to lots of funky shopping options (Broadway/4th), beach access easy, theatre options, ... Kits really is the best area to locate in to visit Van.

- the apartment was very clean, very quiet, well laid out for spending time in, very well equipped!, lots of complimentary amenities to help with cooking, lots of pots/plates etc, huge selection of DVD's and music videos for those hanging out days, great art work on the walls (our hosts personal works).

- recommended.

Great location, walking distance to the beach, amazing restaurants, comfortable bed, nice kitchen, very clean, and a very relaxed setting. Owners have really perfected the VRBO experience. Would definitely recommend this to others and plan on coming back next time we are in the area.

Excellent location, clean & efficient space. Owner very nice. Fridge and pantry well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for visiting and working in Vancouver. Access to Downtown, University and Airport convenient, but away from the crowds and noise in a nice residential area with a park out the door. A short walk to Alma and Broadway with plenty of good restaurants and stores. Efficient kitchen, fridge and pantry stocked with essentials including good coffee. Bed comfortable. Space worked well for me for working as well. Plenty of parking available on the street at all times. I will come back.
