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 Vancouver

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 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!

Quiet west side garden suite

Close to everything that we wanted to visit. There was always parking on the street. Nice walk to the ocean. Alan and Lynda were very helpful yet unobtrusive. Would stay again.

Clean, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights in this suite and felt right at home. Alan and Lynda met us when we arrived and showed us the suite and gave us helpful advice on the many things to do in Vancouver. It was very clean with new appliances and amenities with great attention to detail.

The location was in an interesting area, great for walking and viewing the unbelievably expensive homes. A bus stop about one block away made it easy to get to the downtown area although many restaurants and shops were within walking distance. Very nice stay!

Comfortable Apartment - Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our recent week-long stay in Vancouver. The apartment was impeccably clean, comfortable, and had all of the amenities we could have wanted. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the mornings and evenings and Alan and Lynda helped us to feel completely at home. Without a car, we found it easy to get around via bus and bikes (which we rented for most of the week); Jericho beach is near, with Kitsilano just a tad further. Restaurants and shops are accessible by foot, bike, or bus. Thank you for providing us with a great "home base" for our vacation.

Enjoyed our stay at this suite!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this suite. All the amenities and more were thought of from the Starbucks coffee, the carrot cake, the chips to the chocolates. Our hosts Alan and Lynda provided everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.The bed was very comfortable and the appliances were all very new and worked well.

The suite was in a good central location and only a short distance to all the major attractions. There were a number of restaurants within a short walk if we did not feel like driving.

We would definitely recommend this suite and would stay there again.
