Really comfortable equipped flat - bedroom with kingsize bed, full size kitchen with all equipment you can imagine, flat TV and sofa folding to queensize bed. Sufficient parking is near the house. Short walk to the sandy beach - what more you can want?

Lovely accommodation, recommend to all- singles, couples, families! We stayed on 2 separate occasions during August and were thoroughly impressed with each occasion... Rooms, bedding & towels are very clean & well presented. Rooms have a full kitchen so you can prep your own food if required. Downsides would be the extra charge for parking, jumpy wi-fi and distance from... More

If you need a suite in Vancouver, you can't go wrong here. The price is definitely right. The suites are on the Spartan side, but that is because they mostly serve students as residences during the academic year. The kitchenettes are well-equipped, the bathrooms are clean and modern, and the location is quiet. The AC is on the noisy side,... More

These fully furnished apartments are for mature student housing in the school year, but in the summer they are rented out to travelers and conference attendees. Our suite was very well maintained and clean, much better than you would expect from a student residence. The kitchen was fully equipped (can opener, tea pot...) and our son said the fold-out bed...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the final 2 nights of our 2 week trip to Vancouver. We found it simple to find and easy to check in thanks to the very friendly and efficient front desk staff. The apartment itself was very clean, spacious and had everything you needed, from a coffee machine to a iron and ironing... More

I recently stayed at the Gage Residences with my two boys. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and professional staff. The lobby was large and inviting. The suites are ideal for families and all amenities are included, except parking which is very reasonable. The suites were very clean and modern. I highly recommend the Gage Residence as... More

Basic accommodation with appropriate pricing. The place definitely has a student dorm feel to it and is quite a long way from downtown. Close to buses and beaches. Bed was comfortable but only a double For some reason we were woken up at 9.00am by housekeeping -not sure why Front desk staff was friendly Parking is limited

The apartment was really clean and nicely renovated, bathroom/kitchen excellently equipped and the service was great! The housekeeping staff were especially nice.

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighborhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
