Interaction with Guests
I respect guest's privacy but always try and say hi and check in if guests have any questions or need some local knowledge. The odd free wine tasting is offered to guest who would enjoy that. I own a winery and make my beautiful BC Wine products available to guests at winery direct prices.
Quiet, nice people, lots of great amenities nearby, very central location
5 minute walk to bus stop and quick access to Canada Line rapid transit to airport and downtown

We greatly enjoyed our time at the Main Street Vineyard. The location is cute and especially convenient. We had a great time exploring the local area especially appreciating Le Marche St. George and other restaurant recommendations that Mark gave us. The amenities were great! Both beds were comfortable and we really liked the hot tub. Mark was helpful and prompt whenever we had any questions or concerns.
Great place! The location was excellent,good restaurants and shopping within walking distance and parking right outside the place. Mark's information packet was very helpful. Amenities also very good. I would recommend this place to others. Thanks Mark!
Marks place was fantastic. Very clean and quiet, super comfy bed. Even left a nice bottle of wine out! I'd def stay here next time I'm in vancouver:)
Mark is an excellent host - although we didn't get to meet him, his welcome package email provides clear check-in/check out information, map to get to the suite, and many great recommendations for food, shopping, etc.
Mark responded to any of our questions very quickly via text/email and was very flexible and friendly.
The suite was perfect for a little getaway - clean, cozy, with all the amenities you might need. The descriptions and pictures are accurate, but the space is even better.
Good location, awesome coffee and food shop right on the corner, and very comfortable bed! :)
