Interaction with guests
We respect that each guest is unique and has different needs. We will make every effort to welcome you when possible, and make local recommendations. The beauty of Rose Cottage is that it is a separate dwelling with digital key pad, allowing for a maximum of privacy.
Other things to note
For the FASTEST and most serene walking/cycling ROUTE TO COMMERCIAL DRIVE: May we suggest that you travel North on Lakewood Drive. You will cross a small bridge, turn left at the end of it onto the Central Valley Greenway/BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy. This will take you to the corner of E. Broadway & Victoria Drive, from here you will be able to see the Sky Train stations. Cross the street in both directions (both North and West) and continue on the BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy in the direction of Northwest. This is a lovely shortcut, it will take you directly to Commercial Drive through a pretty and quiet residential setting. See a map of this route in the photos.
Please note there are a number of local laundromats (many offer pick up/drop-off service). There is no washer/dryer on site.
If you have a smart phone or laptop we would highly recommend two apps to help you find your way around town. One is called "Around Me", which will show nearby businesses and includes maps and routes to any location or place you type in.
The other is called "Yelp" which has reviews of nearby businesses as well as directions. For fun things to see and do go to the 'tourismvancouver' website.
