Interaction with Guests
We are nearby (in the upstairs suite) and quick to respond if you need anything. However, your privacy is very important to us and we will only knock on your door if there is a need to do so.
This beautiful garden suite on a quiet tree-lined street is centrally located, in walking distance to trendy Main Street or Commercial Drive. Our neighborhood has recently been designated Little Saigon, so you will find many Vietnamese and other ethnic restaurants nearby.
We are 10 minutes to downtown by car, with easy access to main transit lines.
One block from your suite, you can take a bus in either direction (east or west) to take you directly to Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver (west), or directly to Metrotown shopping mall (east).
We will be happy to point you in the right direction if you are sightseeing or looking for interesting local spots, so feel free to ask.
No smoking on the property.
No overnight guests without prior approval.
If any of these terms are breached, you automatically forfeit your security deposit.
We will do our best to make your stay clean, comfortable and enjoyable. We thank you for respecting our efforts by following our house rules.
The apartment was even better than showed. Very, very clean and much more spacious than I though. Rachel and her family made us feel in home, once they gave us everything we need without interfering in our daily activities.
It is in a very good place too. The bus stop to almost everywhere in Vancouver is just one block distance, and you can go to downtown walking if you don't mind to spend 30 minutes. Close to a very pleasant park (Robson Park) and some grocery stores.
I strongly recommend this place.
Rachel and Tony are excellent hosts! By arrival they showed us the apartment and explained everything. Throughout our stay they were always fast in answering any questions or requests. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need. The location of the suite is great, only a few minutes to trendy Main St and the bus going Downtown leaves just around the corner, but the house is in a quiet neighbourhood. We highly recommend this cosy place!
Despite being unwell, Rachel provided us with a cheery welcome and tour of her apartment which was perfect for our needs. We didn't see much of her or Tony throughout our stay, but knew that they were only a call away should we require anything. Apart from some tips on local bus routes and eateries there was nothing else we needed. The apartment was well equipped, as per the listing and very comfortable. Very happy campers from this end. Thanks again for contributing to our memorable "surprise" visit. Tracy and Spenser
I booked Rachel Gordon's suite for my inlaws that were visiting from out of town. They absolutely loved the place, neighbourhood and host. It was the hottest two weeks of summer in Vancouver and the suite stayed nice and cool. Wish I could have stayed here! The accommodation was so clean, location was extremely convenient and Rachel and Tony provide tons of privacy, as my family barely saw/heard them. Rachel is incredible with response - very quick to respond to my emails/phone call and was very helpful. Myself and my family would recommend Rachel's suite in a heart beat! If I ever have out of towners that need a place to stay, this would be my first recommendation. This suite is great for a couple. And I think it would also be great for a couple plus an additional adult/child.
We had a great stay. Rachel and Tony were very friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great spot to stay in Vancouver!
Great place and location, perfect for what we needed.
Rachel is very caring and helpful.
About the Host, Rachel
My family and I like to meet new people and see new places and we love road trips! My husband and I are vegetarians but our daughter is a carnivore. I love to cook and entertain and all three of us like to watch a good movie, so we enjoy spending time at home.
We live in the upstairs suite and we enjoy meeting our guests and helping you get to know our city.
As with any vacation rental property, we respect your privacy by leaving you alone unless you need us (to answer questions, etc.).
Enjoy your stay!
