Adorable garden suite in heritage home in central Vancouver. Tastefully decorated and fully equipped with a cute kitchen/eating area, electric fireplace and separate bedroom. There's a private garden with a fire pit, lounge chairs and an al fresco eating area to enjoy during your stay. Please note the ceiling height is low (just over 6') so not ideal for basketball stars. Wifi, big screen and Netflix all available during your stay, as well as bikes to explore the city.
The Olympic village skytrain station is only three blocks from the house.
My partner and I stayed in Carol's suite for 4 nights and were very happy with it. The location was perfect - 3 blocks to the train and very close to great restaurants and cafes, and some shopping too.
The apartment had everything we needed. Having access to the laundry was very handy.
Carol was away when we were there however we were greeted by her friend, and she had left a sheet with some great recommendations for food and all the details we needed.
We would stay here again :)
The heritage home was a perfect home away from home. A quaint cottage like experience, with an amazing location. Safe, convenient, great walking distance into the city. The place was warm, had great privacy and allowed us to unpack and feel at home in our own place. Carol was a perfect host, polite, energetic, talented and offered great advice and a little packet of 'to dos' for Vancouver. We loved our stay!
I had a very lovely stay. Carol was there to greet me along with Yogi, her sweet dog. The house was warm and the bed was very comfortable. Any questions I had, Carol was quick to respond to. Overall, everything was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay! Out train arrived late in the evening and Carol had no problem waiting up for us. The suite was the perfect size for two people. I loved the heated floors in the bathroom :) The apartment is a 5 minute walk to the Skytrain which got us about everywhere we wanted to go. They also left us with a list of recommended places to go and we had breakfast at two of the cafes during our stay. Both were delicious and walking distance away. The neighborhood felt safe and is walking distance to a lot of shops and restaurants. Overall we had a wonderful experience.
Carol, Greg, and Yogi (their golden doodle!) were extremely kind and accommodating throughout our entire stay. The flexible check-in time was perfect since we flew in from California late in the evening but Greg welcomed us warmly. They were also available the next morning to give us tips on where to go for our bike ride (the provided bikes significantly enhanced our trip and gave us a "local" experience). Their home was cozy and the heated bathroom tiles were amazing after a cold day of adventures! Great hosts.
We really enjoyed staying at the Heritage Home Suite. Carol was very accommodating and welcoming when we arrived. Her tips on where to explore the Mt Pleasant neighborhood were really helpful. As we explored the neighborhood and the surrounding areas it become apparent that the locals are very friendly and helpful. The location is great and close by to a really excellent mass transit system. We used the train, aqua bus walking and the buses to get around all over Vancouver . Can't wait to get back there.
The house is ideally located in downtown area where there are many Asian food places with 24-hour service - all within walking distance. The bed, the shower and everything else inside are all good. Carol and Greg are both responsive to questions. One thing that perhaps need to be fixed quickly is that there is occasional smell of gasoline just outside the door to the rented area. Nothing too serious.
I'm an artist business owner (salons and retail stores) living in Vancouver, BC with my husband Greg and our golden doodle, Yogi. My passions are creating watercolour sketchbook journals, picking my guitar, and throwing impromptu dinner parties! I also love to travel, study language and learn about different cultures. We love our house and our unique neighborhood, and are excited to share it with guests.
