The manor was in a great location for a visit to family over Thanksgiving (US). The suite was clean and well appointed and Manfred helped us settle in and made us feel welcomed. We appreciated the notebook with information about some of the local restaurants and amenities.
A perfect place to stay in a beautiful city!

WE are so happy you enjoyed spending Thanksgiving with your family at Alma Beach Manor. Sharing special holidays with family is memorable. We are delighted you found all you needed to make your celebration enjoyable.
I personally wrote the "Insider Secrets" of our neighbourhood to share with our guests the experience of living in Kitsilano, we love this area with the abundance of cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries and boutiques. We walk to all the amenities within Kitsilano.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family for another celebration in our beautiful city.
Regards,
Carol and Manfred.

Our family was very comfortable at Alma Beach Manor. The location was excellent for the things we wanted to do in Vancouver. The accommodations were well supplied for us to do our own meals. On street parking was available. The owner was very helpful when we had questions about something in the house.

As our home was being renovated for three months we looked at various places where we could stay. Immediately we were taken with the charm of the manor and were impressed with care and attention the owners, Carol and Manfred, took in showing the suites to us.

We loved it here and moved into the Dundarave Suite. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable. The bed is heavenly. Our suite was beautifully maintained as was the entire manor thanks to the owners and their staff members, Rachelle and Tim.

We felt so at home here and appreciated how both owners and staff were most hospitable always
greeting us and offering to help in any way we might need.

The manor is centrally located making it easy to travel to all destinations within the city.

If you are looking for a vacation rental by owner please be sure to include the Alma Beach Manor.

Dear Peter and Lynn,
We still miss having you here with us!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write to Trip Advisor, we really appreciate your acknowledgment of the hospitality we provide as well as very comfortable amenities in the suite.
As you know we rely on our guest comments as a recommendation for future guests, referral is so important, the best compliment we can receive for our efforts. We are very fortunate to have an amazing team to assist us in our guests enjoyment. I will pass along your kind words to Tim and Rachelle, I know they will be delighted.
It is just not the same without your presence here in Alma Beach Manor. Please come and see us when you are settled in your newly renovated home.
Warmest regards to both of you,
Carol and Manfred.

A peaceful, friendly oasis of comfort with a basket of healthful, fresh food as well. And delicious REAL espresso! Clean and spacious. Tastefully decorated and well appointed. A pleasant, safe, short (umbrella provided) walk to everything I needed. Knowledgeable, kind and helpful hosts. What a wonderful haven in a beautiful city. Better than home. I'll be back. Soon.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write to Trip Advisor, we appreciate your thoughtfulness.
We are sincerely delighted you enjoyed staying in the Ambleside Suite at Alma Beach Manor. Although a studio it has a certain charm all our guests seem to enjoy. The Nespresso coffee and fresh Baked bread are a new addition to our welcome basket, we are pleased you enjoyed both. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back to Alma Beach Manor when you return to Vancouver in the future.
Regards,
Carol and Manfred.

We had a last minute booking and our hosts, Carol and Manfred, were most accommodating, friendly and made us feel very much at home. The location is very convenient and in a good neighborhood. The apartment (one bedroom) was well equipped and very clean. The decor is superb and the whole house is well appointed. I would not hesitate to stay there again!

We were very impressed and pleased with our accommodations at Alma Beach Manor. We rented a one bedroom and a studio apartment. Everything was clean and well-kept. We loved the welcome basket in the refrigerators! I had to call Manfred for a couple of minor issues, and he was very responsive and helpful. The area is gorgeous and 5 minutes from downtown. We would definitely stay there again!

Dear "Whools",
Thank you very much for taking the time to write to Trip Advisor with comments on your stay at Alma Beach Manor. We rely on guest referrals to encourage new guests to stay with us.
Manfred and I are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Alma Beach Manor in the studio and the one bedroom. We also love the area, walk everywhere and love the fact groceries, the beach and downtown are all so close, it is our favourite location in Kitsilano. Manfred is diligent with responding to guest inquiries as well as our assistant. As we are a " keyless entry" property checking in at your convenience works for most guests. The welcome basket is a new addition this year which we implemented from our own recent travel experience, we also loved the fact we could arrive late and relax rather than immediately go grocery shopping. The bread from a local bakery is legendary, almost like cake! We look forward to welcoming you to Alma Beach Manor should your travels have you return to our beautiful city.
Regards,
Carol and Manfred.
