We booked a room here for three days before taking a cruise to Alaska and specified that we are in our 60's and were taking a cruise, so wanted to be close to the embarkation terminal. Margaret e-mailed us, leading us to believe that Ocean Breeze was indeed 10 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It's not. It is in a different city, North Vancouver, across the bay from Vancouver and at least 40 minutes away, including a long walk which took us 20 - 25 minutes, and a 10 minute Sea Bus ride. She also has two dogs on the premises, and I am allergic to dogs. The location is in a rather run down neighborhood, very close to a factory and there are two long, steep flights of stairs leading up to the B and B. We had heavy suitcases, which were left on a landing until her husband came home, as we weren't able to carry them. We left after one night, very disappointed that she hadn't been more honest. It was a stressful beginning to our trip. The room was crowded, and not that comfortable. We ended up at the Days Inn not far from Canada House, and we loved it. The lesson here was that one should never book a B & B based on a website. They are sometimes deceptive and dishonest.
