The guest house is in a great location. Just a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The room was very cosy and stylishly decorated. The bathroom was fine - but there was a small issue with one of the taps in the shower/bath. But once we figured out how to operate... More

Highlights of my stay started with the basket of goodies in the well equipped kitchen, which is extremely welcoming upon arriving after a long day of travel. Two nights of sound sleep in beautiful crisp linens in a spotless apartment. Convenient parking (not always easy in Vancouver) and located down the street from a major public transit route into downtown... More

If our daughter ends up at UBC, it will be because we had the opportunity to experience this neighborhood and all it has to offer. Great location, lovely interior and exterior. We'll be back again. Next time we plan to put that lovely kitchen to use.

The Dundarave suite is nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable with a well supplied kitchen. The owner and staff offer a warm, welcoming and efficient hospitality. Alma Manor is wonderfully located in the heart of Kitsilano, 3 blocks from the beach, one 10 minute bus to either downtown or UBC, close to shops and great restaurants. I highly recommend the...

Once again we have enjoyed a splendid stay at Alma Beach Suites in the lovely and vibrant Kitsilano area of Vancouver BC. In the past we have stayed in both a one-room suite and a studio, and this time we lodged, again, in the first-floor Ambleside studio. (We especially like this studio because of its coziness and because of its... More

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighborhood Profile
West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful and much-needed break from the bustle of big-city life, being a little haven of peace and quiet with an almost village temperament in the heart of Vancouver.
