“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A group of ladies & men form our church booked this B&B for an afternoon tea. The venue is on the Burrad Inlet close to shopping, Newport Village, hospital & Rocky Point Park & the view is spectacular. The scones & other dainty savories & sweets were excellent. Everyone was impressed with the food,the home & the view & would definitely recommend it to friends & family.

Your kind review was most appreciated. It was our pleasure to serve you & your guests on this crisp, sunny day in January 2013. We specialize in scones, and dainty sandwiches or mini quiches and tortilla roll ups. Petit Fours and mini brownies with coffee, tea & cider.

In 2013 we plan to expand this service to Bridal Teas or any other occasion to celebrate. We're open to suggestions and always welcome feedback. Thank you for choosing Mainstay Oasis in "natural" Port Moody.

In an area with no hotels, this B & B is ideal as it is right on the water off Ioco Road, close to Newport Village, Crossroads Hospice and Eagle Ridge Hospital. Perfect peaceful location and home if you have family in the Hospice or Hospital.
I stayed in order to attend a party in the area, and Mary Ellen graciously offered to drive me to the party.
I saw the gorgeous large suite for couples getaway, and I stayed in a room with 2 twin beds. Nice to know it is a family/ child friendly B & B as well.

This B&B is one of the best we have ever stayed at (and we have stayed at B&Bs in Britain, France and other countries!). The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated, our rooms were lovely with a great view of Burrard Inlet, food was superb ... what more could you want? Mary Ellen and Barry are gracious hosts, and Jake (the pug) is a wonderful ambassador.

Thank you!

We had an absolutely fabulous time here. The house is beautiful, the views are fantastic, the room was spacious and comfortable with lovely views across the bay. Mary-Ellen and Barry went out of their way to make us feel at home. The breakfasts were delicious, and weather allowing, they were served outside on the patio so that we could enjoy the view of the sea and the friendly seal who popped up occasionally to greet us. We spent most of our days in and around Vancouver which is a bit away, but Mary-Ellen and Barry always kindly met us at the station and brought us to and from the B & B. I think next time I would stay longer here and just enjoy the beautiful area and the peace and tranquility away from the city.

It was our pleasure to provide accommodation and service to you. We are accesible by Public transportation using the Sky Train from the Vancouver Airport. We provide shuttle service from the exit station.
Another option is limousine pick up/drop off from the airport. There is much to see and do in Port Moody as it provides many amenities of an Urban Center.
Our Motto is: "Relax, Refresh and Recreate" in Natural Port Moody.

This is one of the best B & Bs we have ever stayed in. The hosts were welcoming and friendly and the setting overlooking the harbour was wonderful. The house is large, clean and comfortable,home from home. The breakfasts were the best we have ever been offered. A truly wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Wonderful peaceful setting.

What a charming spot! Lovely hostess, comfy home with charming decor. We will definitely stay here when we come back to Port Moody to visit. Our wee pooch was also welcome - thank you Mary Ellen, Barry and Jake.

Room Tip: Choose Serenity Suite for a view of the water. All rooms are great though.

We spent one night at the Mainstay Oasis and loved every minute of it. The house is amazing, large,clean and tastefully decorated. Our bedroom was large and comfortable and the bathroom was fully appointed with various soaps and skin products to try, The owners (Barry & Mary Ellen) were welcoming and accomodating and made a really nice breakfast for us. Highly recommended.
