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 accomadations in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

The rental was excellent. We would highly recommend this VRBO. We prepared most all our meals with a kitchen which had everything we needed to prepare meals and eat in. Thanks a bunch. PS the welcoming Carrot cake was a real hit.

Comfortable well appointed suite with extra touches

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Alan's suite. Loved having extra items in the cupboards like tea and coffee and even home made carrot cake in the fridge. There were other extra touches like gorgeous fresh flowers. Easy walking distance to a cinnamon roll place and other eating and shopping options. Public bus was also nearby. I would highly recommend Alan's place for a comfortable visit.

Great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for 10 nights, and our adult son joined us for 3 of those nights. Many other guests have commented on the convenient location of this apartment, the availability of parking (we always found one right in front of the apartment), the amenities provided by the hosts and their hospitality. All of that is true, and the one thing though that stands out above other VRBO rentals is the hosts' attention to detail. I am always bothered by the lack of hooks to hang up jackets and clothes in hotels/rentals, but the Cooks have hooks galore installed in this place, and provided all kinds of personal toiletries as well. Alan also told me that the day bed would be made up before our arrival, which was a relief after a tiring trip. There was a power outage in parts of Vancouver one morning, and Alan came by with a French press to make sure that we had our morning caffeine fix. Additionally, he was always available to answer questions. Very gracious hosts indeed who seemed to anticipate their guests' needs.

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.

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!
