Fantastic studio apartment: beautiful kitchen, fully equipped and lovely welcome basket, nice shower/bathroom, good sofa/lounge area and very comfy bed. The whole apartment is beautifully decorated, and very close to transport, Kitsilano beach and 4th Ave shops/restaurants.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Alma Beach Suites in late July 2015 after travelling from Australia for a wedding in Vancouver. We stayed at the Dundarave suite. It was perfect for our needs with single bedroom with king bed, beautiful bathroom and kitchen as well as nice balcony area for some late afternoon relaxing. The full kitchen would allow... More

Very comfortable studio apartment with absolutely everything you might need (kitchen utensils, gadgets, comfy bed etc.) Very convenient for local transport and getting around or just walking the beach. The 'welcome' fruit bread was delicious. So delicious that we found the bakery and ate 3 loaves during our 5 day stay - between the 2 of us (gluttons).

We stayed two weeks in the Spanish Banks apartment. The apartment is located very well in Kitsilano, there is a bus stop right next to it, shops and restaurants very accessible, Kitsilano beaches and parks very easy to reach. The apartment had its own terrace as it was located on the garden level, this was very nice. The backyard is... More

We stayed in this property 7 years ago when my son was living in Vancouver. This year we were back for his wedding to a Kitsilano girl and staying in the same house!

As a business traveller is great to find a well pointed long term rental with all the ammenities. Immaculate and cozy. This suit is a perfect home away from home in a quiet neighbourhood. There's a great bakery (Bordeaux) around the corer and 7/11 to boot. Definitely worth a stay. Thanks again to the owners for a great welcome basket... More

This lovely studio apartment is tucked away in a quiet back garden in a lovely Kitsilano street with easy access to the shops and the excellent bus service. It has been beautifully and thoughtfully appointed (I wish my kitchen at home was as well set up!) and is very comfortable. A larger house has been divided into a big family... More

Dear Lesley, So delighted you enjoyed your stay at Alma Beach Suites. We also love the location with the proximity to the restaurants, shops and boutiques on 4th and Broadway. However, having the beach so close is the ultimate! Especially with children. We often take the bus downtown ourselves.....it is a "door to door" service without the hassle of parking.... More

Once again we have completed a visit to Alma Beach Manor (May 2015 for 6 nights). We stayed in our favorite suite: the Ambleside. Perfect for 1-2 persons.
