No smoking, no pets.
Neighborhood was great, quite, but close to busy street with pubs, restaurants, cafes, and shops. Checking in and out was smooth and simple. Listing is 100% accurate.
I had such a warm and cozy stay at Anna's place. It's exactly as pictured but even more spacious. My favorite part was the kitchen! Fully stocked with everything one would need to cook full meals. So great. I would definitely stay again. :)
Such a wonderful place! We stayed there for four days and were well-provided for. The little suite is very clean, well-maintained, and well-situated, and Anna has thoughtfully stocked the place with basic amenities in case one forgot something or didn't have the time to buy things. The place is a short walk to the skytrain, and Commercial Drive has lots of lovely restaurants and bookstores. We only met Anna briefly after we arrived, but she was warm and friendly and always available to answer questions. At the end of our four-day stay, we had a late departure flight, but Anna made provisions for us to leave our bags at the suite and pick them up right before heading to the airport, which we really appreciated. We highly recommend the garden suite and Anna as a host!
Anna's place is awesome. It's clean, comfortable, and is situated in an ideal location: in a cool neighbourood with lots of interesting restaurants, bars, and shops. Her place is also a short walk to the SkyTrain, which can get you downtown in a matter of minutes. Anna is a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend staying in her lovely apartment.
Anna's garden suite is exactly as advertised - a cosy and comfortable nook close enough to Commercial Drive to make it instantly accessible, but far enough away to not have any problems with noise. The suite is well laid out, has all the amenities you'll need, and is wonderful overall.
I've stayed here before and will stay here again, given the opportunity. That more than anything else will tell you how nice it is.
Anna was the absolute perfect host. We arrived in Vancouver from Dublin quite late at night and the suite was easy to find. It was spacious enough for two, nice and warm and plenty of essential food to do us until we had time to shop. It was a very nice touch to have shower gel, shampoo and hair dryer too. Anna was available to us any time we needed her. Her booklet had some great tips for restaurants, bars and groceries stores. Anna went above and beyond for us and even drove us to our new home with all of our luggage and believe me there was a lot! I can't recommend a stay at Anna's highly enough. We got the perfect start to our 2 years in Vancouver !
From the moment we booked the apartment the process was easy. Anna is a great host , responding promptly to our many enquiries . When we arrived it was early in the morning , before check ,in but Anna was very accommodating , taking our luggage so we could go and explore the wonderful city of Vancouver. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed, quite and homely and great value for our two week stay. The neighbourhood is fantastic , commercial drive has everything you could possibly want with one of the best known Italian bakeries in Vancouver, Fratelli's Bakery. The public transport system in Vancouver is awesome we never really felt the need to rent a car and the location of the apartment in proximity to the Sky train and buses is very convenient .Once again Anna was able to point us in the right direction should we need any help or a guide to the sites and attractions of Vancouver. Anna once again thank you for you help in getting us to Vancouver island , your time and research was greatly appreciated and made it a highlite of the trip.
Commercial Drive Garden Apartment is a great place to stay , a real gem made so by Anna's hospitality its comfortable aspect and great location. We are already planning a return trip to Vancouver and will definitely be staying again
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!
