Simply one of the best place we have stayed in.

“What a beautiful place, my wife loved it.  Comfortable and clean.”

 Great Getaway

“This place won’t disappoint.  The host is warm and friendly and the suite is lovely.  I enjoyed browsing the shops on Main Street and there were lots of options for dining as well.  The host allowed for an early check-in which coming in from an early flight was a bonus as well!”

 Comforts of Home

 “The Garden Cottage had all the comforts of home.  It had everything we needed for a weeklong stay.  We will definitely recommend to friends travelling to Vancouver.”

 Cute as a button!

 “When visiting Vancouver this past summer on business I was in search of accommodations that were more than a regular hotel room.   Boy did I find it!  This cute as a button cottage located just off Main or Cambie Street was close enough to transit that I didn’t need to take a car downtown and pay for parking and the cool shops and restaurants close by had friends coming to my hood to visit.

Very clean, comfortable, thoughtfully decorated and stocked for short or long term stays.  I will definitely book this cottage in the city again on my next visit.”

 Excellent accommodation

 “The Cottage is clean, bright, cheery and very well equipped. Helene is helpful, friendly and accommodating.  We would definitely stay again when visiting Vancouver.”

 Awesome Stay :)

 “Thank you for our amazing stay at your lovely coach house!  It was warm, comfortable and felt like home away from home.  The location was great too – so central yet in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood with tree-lined streets.  We’ll definitely recommend it and come back to stay.”

 Perfect for a family!

 “My husband, our daughters (3 years old and 18 months) and I had a great time at Helene’s cottage. The accommodations were wonderfully comfortable and close to Vancouver attractions like Queen Elizabeth Park and quick skytrain ride to Downtown.  Our stay allowed us to have the feeling of being at home while away from our home!

 Helene has a lot of excellent suggestions for Vancouver and surrounding areas. We would be happy to stay  again if the opportunity arises, and highly recommend to others!”


The owner is friendly. The house is nice and clean. The location is convenient. I can go to skystrain, airport and park within 20 minutes. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. It was cozy.”


 “Welcoming owner, very clean suite, safe neighbourhood and conveniently located. Visited the city for a short period of time; would be excellent for extended stay too. Will return next year for spring!”
