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.
