We stayed in Nickolas`s place for two weeks. We were there as first comers to Vancouver with our dog looking for an apartment in the city, and this place served as a home for us for that time.
We had an easy check in and found the unit to be large and clean.
As we came with nothing but our clothes it was very comfortable that there was everything we needed in the unit. Towels, shampoo and soap, the kitchen stencil, plats, pots and pans, just enough to prepare meal. The TV is very small but we didn't have much time watching anyway. The block of units has a room with a few washing machines and dryers for guest to use. at the back also a nice green area to sit with your morning coffee and a BBQ which haven't used. We didn't have a car but the place has parking also at the back.
The location in north Burnaby is beautiful. our dog was very happy with all the parks and hikes around. The shopping center is about 5-7 min walk and it had everything we needed, including a vet and a pet shop for our dog :)
There is one main bus lines to downtown Vancouver (95) and that takes about 45 min, at day time the bus comes every 7-10 min, but nights and weekends every 30 min which was tiring. Another bus line (144) takes you to a Skytrain station and from there you can continue or to the center of Burnaby or to Vancouver downtown and other areas as commercial drive. we actually preferred that route.
Overall, this is a great place if you are set in the north Burnaby area, less if you want to spend most of your time in Vancouver like we did. unless you have car...
