“Great place to stay. Need to get door lock codes before you arrive.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The Gift Basket is wonderful. We did intially have problems getting into the house. There are Door Locks which are numerically keyed to the house and room. The code we had did not work. No one was there to help. Did talk to Bev who was very helpful. Got her name from guests at Manor who had a similar problem. I tried to contact number for hotel however it did not work. Left a message for Carol and did not get a response. There did not seem like there was anyone onsite to help us. Also need instructions on the booking of how the locks work.
Once we were in, we loved the room. The room and kitchen are well appointed, The gift basket particularly the bread and butter were fantastic.
We would stay again, however would call or email before to get the door codes and get a contact name and number.

Dear Mike,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write to Trip Advisor of your experience when staying at the Manor.
My sincere apologies for the problem you encountersd with the keyless entry to the Alma Beach Manor. We have had a lengthy discussion with reservations and will definitely make the codes and technique clearer in our explanation. Also, will put contact numbers in the confirmation email. We rely on guest feedback to improve our guest experience, thank you again.
We are delighted you enjoyed the welcome basket! It is a new addition to our guest amenity, one we duplicated from an experience while travelling. I too love the Cobs Bread, it is almost like cake! We feel if you arrive tired and a little hungary, don't have the energy to grocery shop immediately, you have enough to survive. We approach our guest experience as if we were the arriving guest.
I look forward to welcoming you back to Alma Beach Manor on your next visit to Vancouver.

We have stayed at Alma Beach manor several times, the most recent in the two-bedroom Spanish Banks suite. As usual, it was clean, convenient, very well maintained, had everything you could want in your home away from home, with a full-sized kitchen and comfy sitting room. It's convenient to downtown and Kits Beach. We have made Alma Beach Manor our place to stay whenever we visit Vancouver. We highly recommend any one of the suites in this beautiful home.

Room Tip: Roomy. Large enough for small family.

My daughter and I just had the most fantastic vacation in beautiful Kitsilano, just steps from the beach. The location really is incomparable, so close to shopping and endless beauty ( gardens and cherry blossoms are stunning! ) The charming heritage house is totally updated, with granite countertops and basin sinks etc. Perfectly clean and beautifully decorated, we feft at home yet pampered. A gift basket had everything we needed to start our day. I will recommend this to my friends and co -workers!

Dear Kate,
We are thrilled you and your daughter enjoyed your stay at Alma Beach Manor this spring. Vancouver is spectacular in April and May with the trees in bloom and bulbs showing their beauty.
Referral is the best compliment we can receive for our efforts to make your stay memorable.
I am delighted you enjoyed the welcome basket, a new addition to our amenities, a little something to get you started especially if you arrive late or need a little snack to keep you going before your trip to the grocery store. That bread is almost like cake but healthy too!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write to Trip Advisor and sharing your enjoyment of our suites, location and cleanliness. I will pass along your positive comments to our team.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Alma Beach Manor for your next visit to Kitsilano.
Regards,
Carol and Manfred.

What a marvellous place in the heart of Kitsilano, Vancouver BC, look no further. We stayed in the "Dundarave Suite" and I cannot rave enough about it. My wife and I were there for a weekend in town and we will use the Alma Beach from now on for our weekend getaways to the city. It had everything for an enjoyable weekend: service, hosts, cleanliness and charm.

In fact I will now consider using it for business and I will be recommending this location when I have clients or colleagues in town.

We had a great stay! The Manor is close to anything you want and need, and located in gorgeous Kitsilano. The entrance is lovely and inviting. We stayed in the Dundarave suite which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It had everything need, very clean and spacious. Full kitchen. Just like home! Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

I stayed at Alma Beach twice in 2012 - first in October in the Jericho Suite, and second in December in the Dundarave Suite. Alma Beach is an outstanding place to stay. The rooms are beautifully fit and furnished, and both suites included excellent kitchen facilities. The location also deserves mention - it's only a few minutes walk to the Jericho Beach waterfront, and very near to West Fourth Avenue and Broadway. The Kitsilano neighbourhood has a lot of fantastic restaurants, coffee shops and independent stores and is within easy access of Granville Island and the Downtown area.

Highly recommended!

We stayed in the Alma Beach Manor over Christmas 2012 and had a fabulous time. The house was beautiful with thoughtful holiday decoration. The Vancouver location was 2nd to none and we not only found it centrally located but also nestled in a fantastic little neighborhood with more great restaurants then we could visit in our short stay. We cooked some meals in the very well appointed kitchen and there were great grocery stores within walking distance, including many wonderful local and organic markets.
My family and I will be staying a the Alma Beach Manor the next time we visit Vancouver and would wholeheartedly recommend it as a great place to stay no matter what your business in Vancouver
