My wife and I used our suite as a base for a month of touring. The suite is beautifuly decorated and has everything you could possibly require to make your stay comfortable. The only thing to keep in mind is that this unit is in the lower level of a family home and as such it is not sound proof so noise travels pretty easily, a small price to pay for great place to stay.

Rediscovering Why The West Coast Lives In My Heart

Guest: Mar'(Ontario, Canada)
Date of Stay: 01/15/12 Review Submitted: 02/08/12

Teri and Gary. Thank you for the most incredible reconnection to a city that welcomed me and was home for 5 years over 30 years ago. The moment I walked into your beautiful garden suite I felt like I was coming home. The welcoming basket of goodies and essentials was such a special touch which was so appreciated after a long day getting to the West Coast. You have created a wonderful space of peace and tranquility in a location that allows for easy access both to the city and the surrounding areas. The suite is so comfortable and the second bedroom allowed for a visit from my daughter and granddaughter from San Francisco and then a friend from Ontario. The Commercial Drive area offers a sense of community, yet allows for access to all the suggested must-see attractions in the greater Vancouver area. The weather has varied from minus - degree temperatures and snow, to + seasonal highs and 6 consecutive days of blue skies and SUNSHINE. Having a car has been a blessing, allowing for excursions all over the Lower Mainland as well as Stateside. This property is an excellent choice for anyone wanting a positive alternative to hotel living, especially for an extended stay, as mine has been. Privacy, flexibility, homelike atmosphere, accessibility, community, and most importantly wonderful hosts has made this reconnection to my roots a truly special experience. I will be making my reservation well in advance for my time here next year. Thanks for everything Teri and Gary.

Owner response:Thanks so much Mary for your very kind words. We are really glad that the trip has been all you hoped for and we are looking forward to seeing you again next year. The information and details you have shared have been far more eloquent than we could have done. Thanks again

We are a small family from Germany and found this beautiful suite via internet for our four weeks stay in Vancouver. We were not sure what we will get but it was more than we could imagine! Before we arrived our hosts were already helping with additional stuff (stroller, highchair, etc.) for our two girls, aged 2 and 3,5. Everything there is very clean, new, comfortabel, cozy and easy. The suite is very well equipped and located in a nice Bohemian area just 10 minutes walk away from skytrain, shops, cafés, restaurants, post office, etc. There are lots of parks with playgrounds around as well and our girls found friends to play within the nice neighbourhood, soon. We could watch wildlife directly in our little garden where Squirrels jump in the trees, beautiful birds sing their songs and Racoons walk bye sometimes :) We liked it so much that we decided to come back after our trip to the Okanagan Valley. And our hosts managed everything for our comeback and supported us so nicely. So we stayed another three weeks and enjoyed the amenities there - Blue, the dog, included. Teri offered our girls to walk him and of course they loved it while Blue was patiently waiting for our little ones to follow him. He is such a lovely and calm dog! We had a great time there and never the feeling that anything was a problem at all. We felt very welcome with our kids and found kind of a home away from home. Thank you so much for having us and we definitely know where to go if we come back to Vancouver again!

We stayed in this FANTASTIC garden suite in early July 2010. Everything was beyond our expectations and we feel this is a real "gem" lodging find in Vancouver. The suite is wonderfully put together, tasteful with attention to every detail. The neighborhood is great for walking and you are near everything, either walking, transit, or driving (including a small lake). As if this wasn't enough, the owners, Teri and Gary, are SUPER hosts and people (as is their world's cutest dog, Blue). They welcomed us, offered wonderful advice, allowed my teens to pet and walk Blue whenever they wanted (probably the best thing about Vancouver to them!), yet we had total privacy and peacefulness in our wonderful garden suite. The week was filled with a combination of city/tourist activities and then, the calm lovely time back at the house, which always felt so welcoming, relaxing, comfortable and like a real "home" to us in even that short time. This was a dynamic and perfect combination, which enhances any vacation, balancing lots of public "action" while basing out of a place of complete comfort, beauty and quiet calm. Although Vancouver could be quite expensive, this lodging felt like such a reasonable expense, even a "good deal", for all the ease and fun we had staying there. It was a perfect lodging choice for us! We area still smiling thinking about our wonderful visit to Vancouver, and especially the terrific place we stayed!.

Enjoyed my stay in this very comfortable apartment for the month of February while volunteering at the Olympics. Close to public transit, quiet neighbourhood, very clean and tidy property with all amenities. Owners were very helpful to help orient me to the city. Highly recommend this suite. Will be back!

We are a retired couple who readily enjoyed our 1 week stay in this recently constructed, nicely appointed, comfortable suite with quality furnishings, mattresses, linens and towels. The hosts were gracious and friendly. For future visits to Van we once again intend to reserve this quiet, well located suite. We would not hesitate to recommend this unit to family, friends and acquaintances.

In August 2009 my wife and I had a lovely 2 week stay in the Garden Suite. Our hosts, Teri and Gary were welcoming, right down to fresh flowers on the breakfast table and a bottle of wine to start our vacation. The accommodations were attractive, very comfortable and beautifully clean. The suite is as lovely as shown on the posting. We appreciated the access to washer and dryer and used the private outdoor patio daily. This location is quiet at night, and convenient to the city centre and the north shore. All in all, a convenient location and great accommodation.

I stayed here with my 7 year old daughter for a 10 day stay to visit friends around Vancouver. It is a very tidy suite with lovely furniture. The location was very central for us as I was visiting different parts of Vancovuer each day and the easy access to sky train and buses was great. The owners are friendly and helpful and are very happy to help with anything you ask. It's hard to imagine getting anything better for the price in Vancouver.
