“An Absolute Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2010

A perfect location and wonderful accommodations. We loved our stay here. The street is quiet and the homes beautiful. Lauren and Patrick have thought of every detail to ensure comfort and safety. The suite is spacious, well-appointed, cheerful and comfortable. The bedroom windows are such that we enjoyed the wonderful Vancouver night air and slept wonderfully. We could easily walk to bus stops to take us anywhere we wanted to go or just walk a few blocks to a Safeway to pick up groceries. We highly recommend the fantastic food & desserts at Meinhardt at West 16th and the great boutique shopping on West 4th. Arbutus B&B is the perfect home away from home.

To call this a B&B is to understate it by a significant degree. It is a superbly equipped and appointed apartment with the added bonus of delightful hosts. We stayed 5 nights on arriving in Canada and my credit card failed! Patrick not only took the whole thing lightly but offered me a free phone call back to the UK to sort the authorisation out and prevent further trouble for us - that, despite the fact that a second card had already secured his payment. Lauren's breakfasts are noteworthy - and the little things like observing that a particular type of tea bag from the multitude on offer had taken our fancy and providing extra quantities of them. It is these touches that make the difference.

10 minuits from downtown vancouver, Arbutus Vista Bed and Breakfast is top quality.
Hosts Patrick and Lauren are superb, gave us all their local knowledge and experience, and went out of their way to help us. The breakfasts are outstanding, and we will re-book with them in September before we return to Australia.

This is a meticulously cared-for apartment. It is private, nicely-laid out, and comes with very pleasant ownership. Patrick and Lauren were very accommodating, and have taken extra care to make this mini-suite comfortable. There was a greeting gift of nibblies, it was well-supplied with coffee and teas, and breakfast--brought to the suite the day before--is fresh and mostly home made. Lauren likes to bake, and it shows. We were there while all the trees in the city seemed to be in bloom, but it's a pretty and convenient neighbourhood as well. Super place to stay; we'd return in a flash.

My wife and I recently stayed 9 days at Arbutus Vista BnB during the Olympics and we must say that the glowing reviews for this excellent, one of a kind BnB are certainly well deserved.

The "bed" part of the BnB, a 540+ sq ft, self-contained suite (bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen) with its own private entry, is spotless, cozy and an oasis where one can relax after a busy sightseeing (or shopping) schedule. The breakfasts are to die for, from freshly squeezed juice to homemade jams, breads and baked delicacies. More importantly, the breakfast is delivered to your suite to enjoy at your leisure. Yes - at Arbutus Vista, you can forget the strict breakfast schedule of your run-of-the-mill BnB...

The BnB is located next to two bus routes and close to the Skytrain Canada Line, a mere 15 minutes from downtown. With its location, expansive suite, private access and mouth-watering breakfasts, only one question remains: WHY WOULD YOU STAY ANYWHERE ELSE?

This place is a great bed and breakfast, top notch for a first time stay at a B&B. My girlfriend and I went to Vancouver BC during the Olympics (absolutely insane atmosphere at it's best). To separate the B&B and Vancouver from the Olympics it is an absolute great place to stay, and that goes to the owners (Lauren and Patrick). They are great owners they are friendly, flexible, and knowledgeable about the area. They are originally from France but have lived in Canada for quite sometime, and they're accents are adorably french. The house is large and has a short gate around the property not such that it makes it unwelcoming but more secluded in the best of the word. The rooms are well furnished depending upon the room that you get, they have all the toiletries, and they clean the rooms while we were out and about (you hang a necklace on the doorknob to let them know you are away). The house is large enough that even when we arrived back late you didn't feel that you had to be as quiet as a mouse. Parking is plentiful on the residential street and when we checked out we could leave our vehicle all day on the street. The Location is a plus, plus, plus. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and secluded yet it's only about 10 minutes into town by bus/es (there are two bus stops at the end of the block) the 16 that takes you into downtown. The 25 which is also nearby takes you to the University of British Columbia, and in the other direction takes to you the Canada Line (metro, skytrain, subway) which is about a 5/8 minute ride to skytrain, and then on the skytrain it's about a 8 minute ride into the heart of downtown or in the other direction takes you to the airport. The location is also convenient there are shopping malls nearby, and a safeway shopping plaza within a 5 minute walk from the front door of the b&b. Arbutus Vista is also close some great street shops, and restaurants (lumiere's) which is a definite plus. It's also close to the freeways that take you to the airport or the U.S. border.

We spent a couple of nights at Arbutus Vista when we first arrived in Canada for a two week trip. The hosts (Lauren and Patrick) were exceptionally helpful and friendly and straight away made us feel at home. The accomodation itself feels totally seperate from the rest of the house (it has its own entrance) and we felt like we were able to relax right from the word go.

Other postives included comfy bed, nice kitchen/lounge area, free internet, very clean, 5 min walk to a supermarket if you want to self cater, and right next to a bus stop where the bus will take you into central Vancouver. Also easy walking distance to lots of restaurants.

When we returned to Arbutus Vista for the final two nights of our fantastic vacation it felt almost like we were returning home! Thanks Patrick/Lauren for helping to make our Canadian trip one of the best holidays we have ever had.
