This was our third trip to Vancouver and The Barclay House where we had an intimate wedding
two years ago in their living room. The House is tucked away in a residential neighborhood. We stayed in the Haidaway for the second time. It is a spacious ground level room that could sleep four but is cozy for two. Its special feature is a jacuzzi. As soon as plans are conceived for a vacation we make our reservation; it is that special. The house is only 2 blocks away from Robson street where we find several of our favorite U.S. stores.
The best part of our stay is the staff. Arty and Dennis were there to greet us on our arrival this year. Once we were settled, we spent a little time talking in general about plans and any special needs. Dennis was ready with suggestions including a day trip to Victoria which was not in our thinking when we arrived. What a great addition to our usual wandering around the city. Somehow he came up with new and different things to do remembering our previous trips.
The highlight of each day was breakfast. Arty comes up with a delicious and creative meal every day. They are well presented and the servings so large that I took something away for a snack each day. I think I put on a couple of pounds during our stay even while watching the amount of food I ate. Part of his job was to supply us each with a fresh cookie snack at the foot of our bed each evening.
It was just like home without having to do any work. We cold not have done it better ourselves. This will be our home of choice whenever we travel to Vancouver.
