  • This was one of the most comfortable air bnbs we have stayed in to date! All of the small things were thought about - shampoos, soaps, coffee, bread, coffee, tea, milk, butter, fully stocked kitchen equipment, DVDs, coat hanger. It made it very easy to walk in and unpack and be comfortable. Location is great - 5 minutes to the metro line, and commercial driver (fantastic restaurants along here). We didn't meet Anna as we were out and about constantly but check in was smooth and easy and she communicated via email constantly. Thanks Anna!

  • Anna was gracious and her place was super. Her welcome package provided a detailed list of 'how-to's' which was appreciated. Though we never met (Anna was busy throughout the week), she checked in via text message to ensure that everything was alright. She also stocked the place with some unexpected treats: coffee, tea, some organic produce and she provided a number of toiletries and clean towels. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the apartment was super clean. The area of commercial drive is super hip (and very safe). Her place is at the top of a beautiful tree and flower lined street. There's a nice coffee shop just steps away (JJ Bean) perfect for people watching, and tons of excellent and diverse restaurants along commercial drive. The sky train is also SUPER CLOSE, making getting around very convenient. You get to feel like a local here, but if you want to head down to Canada Place or the Waterfront and be a tourist, it's just a short sky train ride away.

  • We very much enjoyed our three day stay at the Commercial Drive Garden suite. The location was very convenient and close to shopping and other amenities. The unit was clean and very well organized. The newly renovated kitchen and bathroom were appreciated. There was an ample supply of towels, soaps, shampoo, etc. The bed was quite comfortable. We also appreciated finding organic orange juice in the fridge and organic fruit as well. WiFi and the TV worked very well. We didn't have a problem with parking, which, given it was a long weekend was surprising. We would recommend this Suite to family and friends and would most definitely re-book it when we next return to Vancouver.

  • I loved staying in the Commercial Drive Garden Suite. It's a cozy, clean apartment with everything you need. The location is wonderful - right next to a huge park and a block away from thriving Commercial Drive with shops, restaurants and clubs. Anna, the host, made the stay extra special by anticipating -- and providing -- those little touches that make a stay so easy. The fridge had jam, butter, cream and coffee and a fresh loaf of bread greeted me the first day. The kitchen had tea, sugar, salt, pepper, and a wide range of spices that made cooking a breeze. There was no need to get anything other than what I would cook over a few days. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone! My stay here was wonderful!

  • 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!

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!
