We love the location which provided us with lots of opportunities to take long leisurely walks on the water, all the way to Granville Island and beyond. The house is beautifully furnished, with everything you could possibly need to be comfortable. Kitchen especially well-equipped as owner was a restauranteur. Couple who run the place live upstairs and are very friendly and interesting people.
HInt: good idea to confirm reservations a day or two ahead of your trip.
Tulip House exceeded all expectations. It is fantastically located; beautifully furnished; generously equipped; spotlessly clean and we had the pleasure of living in the most desirable neighbourhood for the duration of our stay. The whole experience was a delight to the senses. Andrew ( the owner) was very welcoming and accommodating and enriched our stay. Thank you for the cucumbers!! We hope to come back one day!!!!
We had an amazing stay at Tulip House! Lovely knowledgeable hosts without being intrusive but on hand if needed for local advice etc. The accommodation was SPOTLESSLY clean throughout with literally every amenity you could ever need and more - very thoughtfully appointed. The location was fantastic in a very nice area which felt homely and safe and was very quiet but just minutes from the local shops either on foot or by car. Vancouver and all the local attractions are no more than 30 mins away by car or bus.I will miss having a beer on the patio at Tulip House after a long day of sightseeing. Thanks so much from The Watts family. We would love to return one day.
We had a wonderful stay at Tulip House. The property was immaculate, spacious and easily accommodated the four of us (three adults and one child). It was perfectly located for shops, children's parks and the beach (both Jericho and Kits beach). Our hosts were very kind, attentive and had a wealth of knowledge about the local sights and restaurants. Overall, this was a fantastic trip and we would highly recommend Tulip House!
This is a fantastic place to stay when you are visiting Vancouver. The owner Dagmar is a delight (her husband was traveling when we visited)--they live on the floor above. Dagmar took us through the apartment and showed us every detail. From the heated floors, one scoop of soap in the DW, two scoops of soap in the Washing machine, fans on the range, turning on the gas logs (don't forget to turn off the range fan:)), and a lot more. All with a smile. The apartment is bright, immaculately clean (cleanest ever), simply furnished but with every possible amenity, super bright. located on a street with no traffic, across from the water, next door to an empty lot, with a cute little yard (or garden as some say). We were three in the apartment, one couple and one single in the second BR. There was a convenient bathroom in between and the arrangement was perfect. We had another couple over for dinner two nights. It was perfect. Tons of room for cooking in a great kitchen; all kitchen ware that you would ever need. Lots of room around the table. Comfortable seating in the living area. This is without a doubt one of the very best places we have ever stayed. We would love to return for a two week stay. Oh, there are food and wine stores in a small shopping district a short walk (4 or 5 short blocks) from the house. And lots of free and easy parking on the street. Thank you Dagmar!
My son and I had a wonderful 9 days at Tulip House. The accommodation has everything you could wish for and the area is superb. Wonderful beaches nearby and an easy bus ride into downtown Vancouver.The weather was sunny and warm throughout. Would highly recommend and have nothing negative to say.
My husband and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of June after a cruise. Our hostess Dagmar was there to greet us and show us all the ins and outs of the property....everything is so well maintained and comfortable! Tulip House was our Home away from Home in Australia. The suburb of Kitsilano is delightful and we would have loved more time to explore this area...lots of little boutiques and cafes and restaurants! The Supermarket IGA is just a couple of blocks down Waterloo St and within an easy walking distance. The trolley bus into the CBD is easy to take and the bus stop is on West 4th St and run every 10 minutes....costs $1.75 per person on a senior rate so very cheap transportation. The bus drivers are very polite and will let you know when and where to get off if you need to go to Waterfront Station or Stanley Park.
The Apartment has everything you could possibly need in the way of crockery...cutlery...pots and pans! Even some staples to get you going! The beds are extremely comfortable for a good nights sleep. The area is lovely and quiet too!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tulip House and will be recommending it to friends who want to visit from Australia!
Thank you so much Dagmar and Andrew for making our stay in Vancouver so enjoyable and memorable!
