The Corkscrew Inn is located in a wonderful neighborhood in Kitsilano and is close to the beach and lots to see and do. The house has a lovely garden setting and is beautifully remodeled but was a disappointment beginning the moment my daughter (who lives 8 blocks away), my grandaughter and I stepped across the threshold and were "greeted" by...

We had three nights here a few weeks ago. Karen was super helpful with local knowledge. The style of the place is very tranquil and the breakfasts are great. Our room was spotless. This is also a great area to stay in when visiting Vancouver. We would definitely recommend this place.

Behind the interesting building and decor is a very professionally run place. Everything has been well thought out and targeted at the tourist. Most B&Bs are large converted houses so sometimes compromises have to be made. The Corkscrew is purpose built to modern standards. (See the build history in the lounge) Karen and Wayne make a great team with plenty... More

We came to Corscrew Inn for two sort stays while our daughter has joined UBC University. Karen is very nice. Rooms are very nice, breakfast delicious, especially omelette. No problem for parking, very calm area and close to beach and bus. Good spot!

My husband and I recently stayed 3 nights at the Corkscrew Inn while we were visiting Vancouver. This is a very clean, charming old craftsman style house that was completely refurbished and with the theme of corkscrews, there are hints of them everywhere (in the stained glass windows, shadow boxes on the walls, bathrobes, etc.). Wayne was the perfect host... More

We spent 3 nights here in Vancouver. Great location near university and other tourist attractions. The host, Wayne was charming and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were interesting and always different and a surprise, which pleased my wife, but not those who like a traditional "English Breakfast". This B&B will appeal to those wanting to experience in... More

Screens are coming! Mosquitoes are so rarely a problem in Vancouver that we have never felt the need to install window screens. But we will take your suggestion, and you will find at least one screened window or door in every guest room next spring (if not sooner). When looking for parking on your next visit, remember that the space... More

We stayed at the Corkscrew Inn for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago and had an amazing time. Karen made us feel at home straightaway: she is very friendly and keen to share all the great things to do around Vancouver and she cooks a DELICIOUS breakfast! The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The Inn is located... More

I always stay here when I come to Vancouver. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. This time I stayed in the Arizona room on the basement level. It has a separate entrance from the rest of the house and its own little patio area. I can always count on Karen or Wayne 's wonderful breakfasts and conversation in... More

Thank you for taking the time to let others know what you like about our Inn. The sea wall route to Granville Island is a lovely walk, and comfortably level. If you don't mind a bit of a hill, the 2nd Avenue route cuts the time down to about half an hour (maybe more of an issue on a cold... More

We just spent 4 nights in the British India room and found everything to be perfect. Clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, quiet for sleepiong and a delicious breakfast every morning. We found Karen to be incredibly helpful, thoughtful, friendly and knowledgeable, truly the perfect innkeeper.
