Interaction with Guests
I interact as much as the guest would like. We are always willing to offer suggestions for dining and sight seeing as well as any other information we can impart. It is nice to get to know our guests if possible but we are very non-intrusive and will always respect the wishes of our guests.
There is public transportation available, there are buses
No smoking indoors, may smoke outside.
Pets will be considered according to size and animal type
This place was lovely. It was spotlessly clean and on arrival there was a dish of fresh fruit waiting for us. The suite is above the host's garage, so very private and quiet with lots of natural light. It is very new and beautifully finished. Fran has thought of every detail. There is an iron/ironing board, hair dryer, extra towels, and everything you might need in the kitchen.
The suite is located in a very quiet residential area - fine if you have a car, but wouldn't be ideal if using public transit. It is walking distance to the tiny village of Crescent Beach, which has a few restaurants & coffee shops.
Fran was available if we needed anything, but gave us full privacy. She provided fresh linens and towels as we needed them. The kitchen was fully equipped and we appreciated the free Wi-fi and extensive cable on TV.
The only negative thing we can think of is that a train goes by late at night and early each morning , blowing its horn very loudly, which might bother a light sleeper. But after the second night, we stopped noticing it.
I had a wonderful time at Above the Beach Coach House. I was in Surrey for a conference so needed a quiet, comfortable place to rest at the end of the day and this was just right. Everything was clean, new, comfortable and beautiful. Fran was there to meet me when I arrived to welcome me. I felt very comfortable to just come and go as I needed. Really, it was just perfect.
The place was exactly as pictured in the advertisement, and it was sparkling clean on arrival. It was a great place to stay, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Crescent Beach/White Rock area.
Fran was an outstanding host. We saw her at the beginning and end of our stay, and she was very helpful in giving us recommendations on things to do and where to eat.
All in all, it was a great stay, and I would definitely go back!
If you are visiting South Surrey or White Rock, this is absolutely your best bet for accommodation. The apartment is new and well appointed with all the modern comforts a guest could want. The large bed is super comfortable, the shower is hot and has high water pressure, the TV has lots of channels, the WIFI is fast and reliable and the detached unit is very private with a key-code entry way. Fran and Dennis are lovely hosts who made us feel very much at home. We look forward to our next stay at the Coach House!
About the Host, Fran
Hi I'm Fran (aka Franny) and my hubby Dennis. We have lived in this most beautiful area for 28 years, and we feel so lucky to live in this paradise.
