“Loved ThePotts House at Rand House in Every Way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

Found The Potts Suite at Rand House recently through a friend's recommendations and we are so glad that we did! It totally exceeded our expectations. This recently restored centrally located historical home is absolutely stunning and the owners go that extra mile in every way possible to make the stay luxuriously comfortable.

Beds and linens are fantastic and cozy (the suite has 2 queen bedrooms and one pull out sofa) and a kitchen with every high end appliance and convenience you could ask for. We liked the fact that there was a bathroom (HUGE tub!) with toilet and then a second washroom across the hall. The cozy sitting room with overstuffed leather furniture holds a nice big flatscreen T.V. and an iPod stand, WiFi etc...

The owners Roy and Duncan were lovely and helpful and provided great information about good restaurants, local grocery stores, athletic outings and touristy daytrips (should you want them) but their neighborhood also lends itself to exploring and finding your own hidden gems.

As far as I'm concerned, If you want a week's getaway with friends or family in the heart of beautiful Vancouver, this is the IDEAL spot to stay.

We were fortunate enough to find the Potts Suite at Rand House available for our stay last week and it was fantastic. The location of this 2-bedroom apartment is ideal for exploring the city; a short walk to English Bay, Stanley Park and into the core of downtown. It has the charm of being in a residential area but just minutes on foot to the heart of the business district. The historic house is really charming and the owners have restored it with care and style. They have not overlooked anything and facilities here are terrific: new appliances in a fully functional kitchen, wireless internet, laundry, and state of the art entertainment equipment (some of which, in truth, was too sophisticated for us to figure out!).

The apartment is ideal for a family or close friends - it is not hugely spacious but there is ample room for 4 people to live comfortably. Bedrooms are not that big, but they are perfectly adequate and have great closets and storage space. There's just one full bathroom but the second WC is great to have. Rain-shower and soaker tub are indulgent features. The furniture is elegant and stylish but also comfortable. The Queen beds are absolutely divine... made it really hard to get out of bed every day.

Last but not least the owners provide really comprehensive information not just about the apartment itself but on things to do nearby, where to eat, and basically just a wonderful guide to making the place feel like home during your stay. Having worked with many rental properties over the years I would say the information given is superior to most other places I have experienced.

I would highly recommend this for business travellers, families and folks hoping for a great spot to stay during their coveted Olympic experience.
