“Simple and Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

I had the pleasure of enjoying Villa Antoine during a visit for business and family duties. As a designer of international resort properties it was a pleasure to be amidst humble, thoughtful surroundings that allowed me to rest and work. The renovated bath was fresh and simple while the crisp linens and cozy room was light and bright even though the rain never stopped.
A light, healthy breakfast was perfect after a quiet night's sleep in this low traffic area near Kerrisdale where the locals satisfy all their cravings from coffee to books and designer clothes to fresh fish markets. I will be back soon!

Room Tip: Loved the rear room overlooking the garden but all rooms had simple character that was uncluttered a...

It is an okay place to stay with no personality, more like staying in a hotel. Breakfasts are par with continental breakfasts at hotels. Nothing is homemade except for maybe the scrambled eggs but i wonder about them since they weren't the normal color of eggs, quite orange.
The sitting area upstairs lacks any comfort, rather uninviting. There is a nice living room downstairs but never told we could use it. I should of asked but most B & B's tell you what areas are public. Not alot of help with where things were in town.

1. The living room downstairs is actually the guests’ entrance to the house as well as the access to the dining room for breakfast and guests are always welcome to use the room.
2. The color of the eggs is due to the fact that we serve organic omega 3 eggs (flax in hen’s feed) hence the deep orange color.
3. Homemade goods: La Villa Antoine serves homemade goods such as: scones, brioches, pancakes, crêpes, eggs. It might not have been served on the 2 days stay that you were here.
4. In terms of help, promotional material together with city maps are available to guests at the front hall entrance. Usually I am available to help guests upon arrival, everyday after breakfast or anytime they see me. Guests have access to a guest line phone and can reach me anytime if they have questions or need help.

Hello,
A comfortable, well located B & B. Could be great with a few additions. The upstairs rooms lacked a comfortable sitting chair and good reading lights. You really only have the bed to sit on. The upstairs balcony would be great with the addition of a few chairs to enjoy the fresh air. The Cedar Room was quite small and did not have Kleenex offered and the internet connection would fade out frequently. The room was not vacummed despite a stay of over five nights.

The Cherry Blossom room is very pleasant and has an extensive closet and bathroom area and great internet reception. Linens and towels are very nice in both rooms.

The hostess Ann Marie is engaging and assisted with bus routes. Breakfasts are simple and composed of fresh fruit, great yogurt, cereal, toast and maybe one hot item. You will not be offered meat, breakfast potatoes, omlets etc.

La Villa Antoine is not an over the top B & B -- but provides a comfortable night's rest.

1. La Villa Antoine B & B strives to provide a comfortable and enjoyable accommodation for its guests.
2. The Cherry Blossom and Cedar rooms each have a desk and chair in the room. Should this not suit, a shared seating area with a comfy chair, reading lamp, table with chairs and a fridge is conveniently located right outside both rooms. On the main floor we also have a large living room that is for use by the guests.
3. Had the guest mentioned the problem with the Internet reception in the Cedar room we would have happily addressed it. As of now, according to other guests it is not a problem.
4. The private balcony in the Cherry Blossom room has chairs and a table on the deck. The chairs are often folded up in case of rain.
5. La Villa Antoine offers a hot item dish daily.
6. All rooms are tidied daily and for longer stays a thorough cleaning is usually done after five days. During the month of March 2011 (as referred to by the writer of this critic), the longest stay in the Cedar room was actually four nights.

Anne-Marie has a wonderful B&B. Beautiful house, well kept, clean and comfortable. I tried reserving the same rooms for a few months later, but they were already reserved. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Anne-Marie is very good at responding to emails

Throughout the years we have stayed at some of the top B+B's in Vancouver(Stanley Park etc.)-but this was just perfect for us. Think slightly upscale Craftsman home in the most delightful and safe neighborhoods. These all-renovated rooms are fresh and tastefully done. Love the stained glass in the main part of the house, love the privacy between the rooms. Love the expensive COMFORTABLE beds, Love Anne-Marie. We live in a nice place in Santa Barbara, so when we travel we want to stay in an Authentic, tasteful, and quiet place. This was it. Since there are only a few rooms, breakfast with Anne Marie(she herself cooks up fun and tasty goods)-is refined, fun, and not overdone. Have a cheerful lttle chat, and then just go lay around the lovely bedroom before adventuring for the day. We stayed in the Cherry Blossom room, -the bathroom was upscale, nicely done, and brightly clean. What a winner- and at very reasonable prices. This place is mostly all new renovated now....the pride of the owner shows...the balance here is perfect. Perhaps not the place people who like to be doted-over or want long talks-- would like. It's balanced- lovely and true to its craftsman neighborhood. You'll like Anne-Marie,- she is sweet and bright, but also has nice little things to say- and simple...does all the work herself, and that is why everything is so impeccably fresh and clean.
Ps-DO NOT miss Restaurant Ouisi down on Grandville street just a mile away to drive, -its the Jambalaya truely that was the best we have had in our overly-long lifetimes...we even went back the next night for more.
Breathtaking...and the Jerk Chicken too! We spoke to the owner...we first went there 13 years ago....he is consistant...but that is another story. Good luck.

Excellent value in a lovely neighborhood close to shops, restaurants, and major streets. On arrival, the premises were scrupulously clean. Added benefit: proprietor has an outstanding collection of modern literature in English and French (I couldn’t read the French, but it looked outstanding – many familiar authors and titles). English majors, take note
We stayed in the Cherry Blossom room, which was far from being just a room: we had a balcony with a table and chairs, a walk-in closet bigger than some hotel rooms, a TV, and a spacious, windowed bath that featured European-style fixtures and a Jacuzzi tub. Also available for our use were an upstairs sitting room with a fridge and tea-making facilities, and an additional room (a library, really) with all those books, as well as a Windows computer hooked up to the internet. Breakfasts were extensive: juice, fruit, cereal, yogurt, and a hot dish every day: pancakes, crepes, scrambled eggs, French toast; and unlimited coffee. We rented a car, and were delighted with the ample, free parking right in front of the house.
Quibbles, and these are very minor and subjective: given all this elegance and savoir-faire, I would have expected higher-level toiletries. It’s nice to know that “Pert” in French is “Pret,” but this bargain-basement shampoo-conditioner blend turned my hair greasy; similar issues with the paper-wrapped soaplets and the Costco-sized hand lotion. Towels will be changed (if you ask), but we were there for five nights, and our rooms were not swept or cleaned during that time. This didn’t bother me particularly, but others might object. Our hostess was comme il’ fait, correct in every detail, but those who are looking for effusive warmth and a plethora of suggestions may be disappointed.
Overall, this was a good experience and, again, an outstanding value. This was our fourth trip to Vancouver, and our first at a B&B. Given hotel prices, traffic, parking hassles, and the high cost of restaurant meals, we would certainly choose to stay at a B&B again, and I would recommend La Villa Antoine to self-sufficient travelers who do not require a great deal of personal attention and four-star luxury.

My husband and I just returned from Vancouver and spent 4 nights at this B&B. Marie (the owner) has a beautiful home with delicious breakfasts. The home is in the Kerrisdale section (41st street) of Vancouver, with easy bus access to downtown and the rest of the city. Large hedges provide quiet and privacy. 2 rooms downstairs with a shared bath, and two upstairs with private baths. Marie strives for the little details, outfitting each suite with extra amenities (body lotions/sprays, facial wash, etc) and there is tea available 24 hrs/day. Breakfasts were super filling, with fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, juice, tea/coffee, and a hot selection. (pancakes, french toast, eggs, toast) Marie and her staff went out of their way to accommodate my husband's early morning coffee, by leaving it prepped for him to start to brew himself! Beautiful bay windows and all the comforts of home!
