We spent a while looking for affordable and promising accommodation in Vancouver, and it wasn't easy to find! Mickey's Beach Chalet turned out to be a perfect place to stay; we liked being away from the hub of the downtown and Kitsilano is a cool attractive area, easy to reach by bus. We were able to keep our car in the garage which was really helpful. We walked to Granville Island, took about 25 minutes not hurrying at all. The room was very comfortable, good bed and a pleasant deck area outside where we took breakfast in the sun (the homemade granola is really good!). It was great to be able to wander through to the kitchen as well. The owners are friendly and helpful, and the neighbourhood is safe and pleasant; we dined at some of the local bars/restaurants which have a good vibe. Highly recommended.
