The suite itself was okay, and we did like the location - close to downtown but in an interesting eastside Vancouver neighbourhood. Unfortunately, Penny rents both b and b suites as well as to regular monthly tenants. This meant that our neighbours were having parties many nights through our stay. It was a really noisy stay and we did call... More

We stayed at Pennys Place last month for 2 nights. We stayed in a large flat with 2 double beds and a sofa bed with excellent kitchen facilities and a good size lounge with cable TV. This was superb for us and 2 mature children. A short number 20 bus trip into central Vancouver and a very short walk up... More

The owner, Penny, is very nice, as well as the housekeepers. They are always available and helpful. Located directly on Commercial Drive, the best street in Vancouver because you can find everything you're looking for: gifts, fresh produce, food and great coffee shop, especially Joe's. The most important also is that you feel secure in that area. It is only... More

we stayed in pennys place for 5 nights... Our opinion was mixed...It was slightly outside the main area of Vancouver (nightlife etc) on Commercial Drive. The skytrain to the city was about a 15minute walk, the bus went just outside (but wasnot the safest at times) and taxis are n't too expensive. The apartment itself was covered in antiques which...
