Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at the Commercial Drive Garden Suite was just perfect. The facilities are of a high standard and the location is terrific. It is only a short walk to the sky train - which means you can easily get anywhere in the city. Commercial drive has excellent shopping and amazing food.
    Anna is an excellent host - happy to assist with whatever will make your stay a positive one.

  • Anna's apartment was wonderful, it was clean, cozy and very convenient to Commercial drive and the Skytrain. There was lovely soap in the washroom and the fridge was stocked with orange juice, milk and a brita filter. I would definitely stay there again!

  • We had just a great stay. It was raining but Annas home made us feel safe! Its a great spot for a couple who want to discvover vancouver. Thanks again.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed in this lovely garden suite for a weekend, while visiting Vancouver. This is truly one of the most organized air b and b's we've ever stayed in.
    The location is perfect and the home is lovely! Lots of space, beautiful kitchen and a comfortable bed. We would love to stay here again.

  • I booked Anna's space for my parents who were in town visiting me. It was a perfect spot for relaxing! The location was great, very close to all the amazing restaurants on Commercial Drive and also the skytrain so it was super easy to pop downtown. My parents absolutely loved their stay. They found the suite clean, cozy and were so happy to have the kitchen and lounge area. Booking was also really easy as Anna was always prompt with emails, answering any questions I had and was also very accommodating to our needs. I would definitely recommend staying at the Commercial Drive Garden Suite! Thanks so so much!

  • What a great place! I rented this suite for my dad and stepmum and they were very pleased. It is a wonderful space with all the comforts of home. Well equipped kitchen, toiletries in the bathroom, movies for a lazy night in, and brochures about the city to help plan your adventure. Anna really goes that extra mile - creamer, orange juice, fruit, bread... all ready for you upon arrival. She even grabbed decaf coffee for my dad! This suite is in a great location - quiet residential street, but only a 5 min walk to all the awesome on Commercial Drive, the skytrain and busses downtown. There is parking right out front too.

  • Really great host, location, and space. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my stay and highly recommend Anna's suite. She very thoughtfully left all the basics - tea, coffee, creamer, etc. The place is very handy to the Drive and Skytrain, great alternative to staying downtown and paying twice as much for a quarter of the space. I'll be back for sure. 6 stars out of 5 :) Also so quiet it's like you have the entire house to yourself.

  • I give his property the highest recommendation. It had absolutely everything. I got this place for my mother when she was visiting and she loved it. The bed was comfortable, toiletries were provided, the kitchen was beautiful and the host really went the extra mile to provide things like a fresh pint of half and half, as well as ground coffee from JJ Bean. Since there are virtually NO hotels in the commercial drive area, especially north of Broadway, this is hands down the best property you'll find. Out of this world.

  • The suite is private, lovely, and clean with a lovely kitchen area for those looking for extended stay. It's not in downtown Vancouver proper but that's no problem - the metro is a 5 minute walk and takes you anywhere! Anna was more responsive and communicated much more detail than a hotel ever would. Every last detail about the suite is also tended to - maps, guidebooks, toiletries, games, movies, and even coffee, fresh fruit, juice, and some bread. We took a whole day to do the Hop-on-Hop off and it was great not to drive or worry about parking - we learned a lot and saw all of Stanley park and Granville Island. Lastly, the food, oh, the food. I inquired with Anna for (email hidden)e was spot on. You MUST go to Legendary Noodle (no reservations, tiny place) to get the most yummy hand drawn Chinese noodles. Siddhartha's (walking distance from suite) was also really tasty Indian food. We snacked our way through the Granville Island Market and Alibi and Rogue were both great bars (Alibi's food is really nice too). I'd definitely visit Vancouver again and I'd be sure to stay at the Garden Suite!

  • Great location. Clean, trendy space. Very comfortable. Easy to communicate with Anna. I would stay there again. Thanks, Anna! (And thanks for dropping off my house keys!)

I love our 1912 character home and take great pride in making sure all of our guests are happy and comfortable. I have lived in the area for about 10 years with my husband and have a good knowledge of Vancouver and the surrounding areas. I enjoy both the summer and winter months in Vancouver. In the summer I enjoy hiking, biking and just spending time in this beautiful city and in the winter we like to head up to the local ski hills or Whistler for skiing and snowshoeing. I hope you enjoy this city as much as we do. We look forward to seeing you soon!
