A really great place to stay. Host is a really lovely person and makes you very welcome. Very pleasant room and facilities . Great breakfast . Terrific location in gorgeous Kitsilano close to everything. Really enjoyed the opportunity to chat with the other guests. Spotless ! Very good value.

It was a recommendation from one of my friends who had stayed at the place before. We were searching for a place to stay in Vancouver and we went with my friend’s suggestion and just as told, the place was everything we were looking for. A comfortable and affordable stay and conveniently located near the beach. The rooms and the... More

We enjoyed four nights at Between Friends - staying in the Zen Suite. Perfect location close to Kit's Beach and wonderful shops and cafe's on 4th Street. Simone and her Manager were awesome hosts - took great care of us!! Highly recommend this B&B!!

I went here in the summer of 2014, (delayed review, sorry), and stayed for 4 nights. I highly recommend waking up in the morning to try their breakfast, it's absolutely mouth-watering. I had french toast with fresh berries, yogurt and granola. BEDROOM: - very nice, comfortable, and clean - a bit small (only room for the bed and a small... More

Just a one night stay in the Zen Suite. This is an objective review on the current physical condition of the accommodation we had. When I looked for reviews prior to our stay, I couldn't find anything more recent than September 2009 for the Zen Suite. It's aged a bit. We think this place would be really special again with...

We stayed 3 nights is this wonderful B&B. The room was clean and pleasant and we had our own little balcony (ask for the Seabreeze room). The breakfast was good, sufficient and healthy. In addition it was very reasonably priced. If you arrive in a car the B&B has a free parking place close by. Only little caveat was the... More

My friends and I were looking for a house that would comfortably sleep 5 people and the Between Friends Bed and Breakfast Travel Apartments were perfect! The travel apartments sit next to the B&B, have full kitchens and are beautifully renovated. The top floor was occupied by one couple, the one bed room apartment was perfect for them. The rest...

We stayed at this B&B a few times in Vancouver and it is a very welcoming and cozy place to stay. It is a comfortable space for a family to be in. The breakfast was really great and they kept the place nice and clean. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
