We stayed here for 6 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is great, close to bus stops and in a particularly pleasant part of Kitsilano. The home is nicely decorated, has a beautiful kitchen and great places, inside and outside, to relax and read. We had a very comfortable bed and found our room a nice... More

Joanne could not have done more to welcome us into her home, and the city of Vancouver, on our arrival in Canada. Her home is located in a quiet suburb, and made for an interesting bus ride into the centre of the city. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. Joanne has prepared lots of information about places to visit,... More

The moment I met Joanne and saw the hotel, I felt like living at home. Fully equipped kitchen and spacious living room. Comfortable queen sized bed. Very nice breakfast. Joanne provided me usefule local information, which made my stay easier. The location of the hotel is very convenient for the visitors to reach the university and the downtown.

From the moment we arrived at House on Dunbar B&B, Joanne was very accommodating. She provided us recommendations including maps, restaurants, and places to explore. House on Dunbar has everything you may need including laundry, a fully equipped kitchen, free wifi and computer access, local telephone calls, and great service!

Joanne Renwick is such an out standing hostess, her meals were great as were the accommodations. We stayed two nights at the end of July. July 26th was the first night of the Honda Celebration of Lights (fireworks) that lasted a full 30 minutes. Getting us back to her B & B after 11 pm. No problem as she provided... More

It is a chaming house with a friendly and supporting owner. The breakfast will beat all Hotel buffets as create and special. The surrounding area is perfect to relax after coming from your trip from downtown. Quiet and Close to Pacific Spirit Park. Joanne Keep all necessary touritic informations and brochure ready for your stay in Voncouver.

Joanne has a beautiful home in a very quiet neighborhood, walking distance from at least two parks. She can be quite helpful with planning your stay. A highlight of this B&B is the common area on the main floor, which is for guest use only, has lots of windows and skylights, a complete kitchen, and opens up to the back... More

When I emailed you to state that I had availability, I did so from my mobile site, with all my best intentions. I am not able to update my system 100% of the time, especially when I am not in front of my computer. The message that displayed on my reservation system when you viewed my availability: I make my...

We were here for five nights at the last leg of our trip. The house is located in a beautiful residential area, 5 minute walk from the bus stop that can take one downtown with bus no 007 (a 20 minute ride). It has a nice backyard that allows guests to find serenity and sunlight whenever needed. There were also... More

We traveled to Vancouver for a week of vacation. Joanne's B&B gave us a terrific place to call home while we were there. Our room was tastefully done and we enjoyed access to the kitchen and refrigerator downstairs as well as the treats left out for her guests. This B&B is centrally located and Joanne has a wonderful book of... More
