The Secret Garden was everything we needed during our stay in Vancouver. Close to the city, convenient to grab a coffee or get some things to cook at home, and relaxing. Noo Noo is a wonderful host and has many great suggestions for your trip to the Vancouver area. We would definitely stay here again. Scott and Melissa Pennsylvania, USA

Management response:

Hi Scott: Thanks so much for your review. I'm so glad you had a good time - and thanks for the compliments! Hope to see you again, you were great guests. Noo-Noo
