About Alan and Lynda

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 and Lynda purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Alan and Lynda 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 10 Day Stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at Allan and Lynda’s very cute garden suite. Great decor and very comfy with lots of practical amenities. There is also a lovely touch of their excellent personal photo art! A great location just 3 blocks from busy Broadway, and lots of available street parking. Would love to stay again when I visit Vancouver.

Wonderful stay. Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week to visit family. Everything was great. Kitchen well stocked and we cooked most of the time saving a lot of money. Home was quiet, very clean and had a private entrance. Hosts were on site in case we needed anything. Lynda made a wonderful carrot cake for our arrival. We will definetly stay here again if available

Perfect: quiet, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Alan is a great host he always provided help when/if needed. The suite is just what we were looking for. Everything is very clean and looks like new. The neighborhood is very quiet, just a few minutes away from dowtown so it is perfect for a good night sleep.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in the Cook's apartment. We've stayed in a lot of VRBOs and this was one of the best experiences we've had. The apartment was emmaculate and very well appointed with everything you need. They even made delicious carrot cake for us that we enjoyed every morning! The location was a plus and Alan was very helpful and gave us a lot of suggestions on dinning and sights to see. I highly recommend their place and will definitely stay there again if we're in the area.

Thank you Alan for the great hospitality!
