Description

The space

~ Commercial Drive Cozy Getaway Suite ~ Entire Two Bedroom Garden Level Suite

Located in the heart of Commercial Drive, Alexis and Sylvain have been successfully running a B&B in their house, upstairs of the suite for six years, and have now expanded to include this newly renovated, furnished, and outfitted suite. If you would like an entire apartment to yourself, our Cozy Getaway Suite is for you. However, if you would like to stay upstairs, we have our Bed and Breakfast accommodation:

You will enjoy two bedrooms, a patio, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and our welcoming basket filled with basic cooking supplies, breakfast items, tea, and freshly ground coffee to start off your stay. This is a private living space all to yourselves; however, we live upstairs in a different part of the house so if you have need of anything during your stay we are right there to assist you.
For travelling parents, we provide for your convenience a high chair (changes level and tilts to lounging position), playpen/bassinette, stroller and infant rear facing car seat (detachable that clips in the stroller) plus a toddler car seat (see pictures for details). Hopefully this can make your travelling arrangements easier.
When our schedules allow, we offer a shuttle to and from the Vancouver International Airport for just $30. A taxi would cost you approximately $50 to get to our house. We are also happy to send you detailed directions if you are planning to take public transit.
Commercial Drive is a vibrant, eclectic neighbourhood in the heart of East Vancouver. Our Cozy Getaway Suite is an affordable and conveniently located rental suite, intended to make your visit to Vancouver memorable and filled with ease. This suite is ideal for vacations, family getaways, ski trips, and is also perfect for those needing affordable furnished accommodation for the longer term.
Everyone who has stayed in our suite was nothing but happy, comfortable, felt right at home and loved the space. However, as a courtesy to our guests, we want to check that our ceiling height will not cause a problem in case you happen to be an extremely tall person! The ceiling is slightly lower than normal height in the suite (approximately 6'5")(196cm), and there is a beam going across the living room doorway that is around 6' (183 cm). As we said, this has not been a problem for anyone but we do like you to have this information before you check in.
We are just a 10 minute drive or 20 minute public transit trip from downtown Vancouver, but our beautiful neighbourhood has a life all of it’s own! We are located just half a block away from public transit, unique shopping, great restaurants, European- style cafes, a yoga studio, pool, gym, ice rink, and athletic track.
~ We maintain a smoke free and pet free environment for all of our guests.~

Everything is worth appreciation in Alexis & Sylvain's house: the quiet location with a lovely quiet garden but so close to the busy Commercial Drive, just a few minutes' walking to the SkyTrain stop from where you can reach any place in Vancouver. The house is so cozy, so much attention put in every detail, forniture, framed pictures, any objects speak of nice memories and reflects the owners' aesthetic taste. Their warmth, human sensitivity and kindness will make you feel comfortable, like being with old friends...Thank you guys for the great stay!

This is our 3rd time to stay at Sylvain and Alexis home. We are a father and a son on a business trip from Japan and having two separate rooms with super comfortable beds is just perfect for us. We enjoyed Italian, Japanese, Indian, Mexican, Thai, Ethiopian restaurants all in a walking distance. We travel to different countries and stayed different types of accommodation, but Sylvain & Alexis's suite is the most comfortable space of all. We will definetely stay here if we have another trip back to Vancouver.

Great location, steps from The Drive. The suite was cozy as promised and perfect for our stay. It was clean and quiet and immediately felt like a home away from home. Check in was so easy and everything you could need during your stay is available in the suite. Would highly recommend.
