This place is a perfect beautiful setting for a Vancouver Visit. Nestled into a beautiful park like setting, very private, with a gorgeous backyard. We loved this place, clean, comfortable and definitely will be back to visit again. We were only minutes away from our venue for the Vancouver Folk Festival at Jericho Beach. This festival is amazing....must see!! .Our hosts were very friendly and helped us out when our GPS took us the wrong way. Wish we could have stayed longer and took in more of the beautiful area. Thanks again for your great hospitality. We enjoyed our visit very much.

Mik & Laura were such sweethearts! They met us when we arrived, and Laura explained everything we needed to know about the suite, offered suggestions of activities in the area, and restaurants as well. As mentioned in another reviews, the bathroom has areas with low ceilings which was a bit challenging for us, but other than that the place was lovely! Quiet and nice view of the yard, easy parking in their driveway, and a pleasant neighbourhood.

This is a lovely spot with two very lovely hosts. The suite is loaded with everything you need (the complimentary coffee and cereal was a nice surprise!) to have a great stay and the house is located right on the edge of the University Endowment Lands which means a beautiful, quiet neighbourhood, breathtaking hiking trails close by, and a nice, short commute to UBC. All the beaches are a quick bus ride away (or an adventurous walk which I did often) and the owners of the house have left a list of nice things to do in the area with directions and recommendations. One thing to note for the tall folks looking to rent: the suite has very low ceilings, especially in the bathroom. I am 6`4" and I had to squat in the bathroom (though there is a small space where you can stand in the shower but you can't move around too much). The rest of the suite is about 6`5" so it was fine for me but proceed with caution if you're much taller than I am.

We stayed at the Cozy Studio Retreat for 4 nights to attend a wedding at UBC. Not only was this a great quiet location for this but we found it perfect for getting anywhere in Vancouver. Our hosts were great. We found Jon to be excellent in keeping the communication lines open for any concerns we may have had, and there were none. The suite was cozy, clean, well priced and contained everything you'd expect.

Jon was a pleasure to deal with! He was very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The location was ideal for our event! Close to UBC and Point Gray, there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance or a short bus ride. Spanish Banks is also quite close. The bed is comfortable and the suite is well appointed. the property has a swimming pool and hot tub which was very nice. The owners are very friendly. Laundry facilities are also available. I would rate this suite an excellent value for anyone looking to stay in Vancouver and well worth considering.

This was the perfect spot from which to visit our family in UBC. The studio provides everything you need, and more besides. It is clean, and comfortable, and the attention to detail is second to non. Use of the swimming pool was a surprise. The hosts, Laura and Mik, are friendly and really helpful. We would certainly love to stay here again, if available, when we visit next year. Thank you.

I am posting this on behalf of my parents.
John and Daria live in the upper portion of their dutch colonnial-style house on the West side of Vancouver. John is a semi-retired physician who loves the outdoors, as well as a good discussion. Daria is a retired occupational therapist, who is an avid gardener and amateur botanist.
They both love travelling and meeting people, and are always warm and open with our guests. They have even been known to invite our various guests over for a BBQ or a glass of wine. They're wonderful people, so maybe you'll be lucky enough to meet them, if they're not off on some adventure.
