The apartment was exactly as I remembered - clean, efficient and cozy. A true home away from home, with hosts that make you feel most welcome.
On checking in, I immediately noticed the many touches that Gary and Debbie had left to make me feel welcome - lamps on, a fresh pastry, a basket of snacks and a short tour of the unit all helped to make me feel at home.
This small apartment is perfect for one or two people, whether you are in Vancouver as a tourist, you are visiting family, or in the city for short term work. It is 5 minutes walk from the Canada Line, and about 10 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Main Street. A car is definitely not required.
I would love to have been able to visit in the summer, in order to enjoy the lovely back yard. Perhaps next year!
Great stay, great suite, well equiped for a short stay, great location near the stn and 15 min ride to downtown and still peaceful after a hectic sightseeing day, very helpful host and good value for money. Thank you Gary & Debbie and Best wishes.
Awesome! Even more than that they are incredible and we just felt like home! It was such an amazing days that we will never forget and we will come back again! Thank you so much for everything! 3
I loved how welcoming, thoughtful and helpful our hosts were. Gary and Debbie provided excellent information about Vancouver and the best means of travel even before we began our vacation. Once in town the arrangements were great and the host obviously knew what accommodations travelers would need. I was happy to find some personal touches (chocolates and coffee provided) that were unexpected, very nice and made us feel as true guests in the home.
A very warm welcome and excellent introduction to the suite. Could not have been better!

We love travelling ourselves!
We are members of the Vancouver Board of Trade and have both served on the Board of Directors of the Sales and Marketing Executives International in Vancouver. Gardening and long walks around Vancouver are our favorite past times. We also enjoy cooking, fine wines and Belgium beer! Our travels have taken us to Europe several times and we enjoy sharing our experiences. We built our rental suite anticipating a need for people visiting patients in the nearby long-stay hospital, but we quickly found that it was in demand by vacationers and business people because of our central location.
