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.

I stayed for a total of 9 nights spread over a 2 week period, after initially booking for 3 nights. Simone, the owner & Sam, the manager, are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are cozy & the breakfasts delicious! Secure car parking is available for a small fee. Located in... More

Lovely home, tasty breakfast, very welcoming hosts and wonderful location. We stayed at Between Friends when we traveled to Vancouver tour the University of British Columbia with our teenage daughter. The accommodations were perfect -- quiet and comfortable. The location is ideal, a half block from 4th Avenue, with its shopping and restaurants and bus lines leading directly to UBC,... More

This is the kind of place you want to keep as your little secret, as it is so great. Simone and her staff are so accommodating and the conversation at the breakfast is always so upbeat, interesting and memorable. Perfect location in Kits, walking distance to beaches, great shopping, movie theatre and wonderful restaurants. What can I say we love... More

We found Between Friends and were quite happy with our stay-- a good value in Vancouver away from the bustle of the city and downtown yet close to all the action in this nice Kitsilano neighborhood. Very comfortable room, gracious, accommodating, and available host. Breakfast was copious and had many options including fresh fruit, granola, and a hot entrée. We... More
