The English Bay suite is a lovely one-bedroom apartment with a recently renovated kitchen and bathroom, in a quiet building on a quiet street. The bed is super comfortable - we slept so well!

Alma Beach Manor is an excellent place to stay while in Vancouver. Located in an ideal location in Kitsilano, it is easy to get to downtown, the different beaches on English Bay, the main streets of Kitsilano, UBC, and Granville Island. It is also easy to get to from the airport. Walk a few hundred yards and you are at... More

We stayed in the English Bay suite; intimate one bedroom. So lovely and clean. Handy bus stop across the street. There was a welcome basket in the fridge and the kitchen was spotless and bright. Lovely bathroom. We will certainly stay there again. Great hosts to greet us!

I stayed in the Ambleside studio apartment during a recent visit to Vancouver to visit my daughter and can't imagine I will be staying anywhere else in future.

I initially booked a three bedroom suite but then told it was not available. Manfred offered me a two bedroom suite plus a studio for the same price. I was then offered the Kitsilano penthouse on the top floor as well as the studio, again for the original price of the three bedroom suite so a bargain! The penthouse was... More

Great way of staying in Vancouver living like a local. Perfect location between the Kitsilano beaches and the shops on 4th Avenue. Public transport passing right in front of the house. Nice building with a very nice penthouse - nicely decorated and very well equiped.
