Very comfortable new and modern 1 bedroom garden suite in great area.

The space

Newly renovated 600 ft one bedroom suite in great quiet neighbourhood with tree lined streets. Easy walking distance to popular commercial drive with grocery, pub, restaurants, cafes, and Broadway/ Commercial drive skytrain. 10 minute drive to downtown, or just take the train. Suite is very nice- new appliances, washer/ dryer, dishwasher, fireplace, TV, cable, internet, small stereo with iphone connector. Comfortably furnished and very clean. Everything you will need is here!
The suite opens up to our beautiful backyard garden and yard with many flowers and veggies. There is a covered courtyard under the deck with a small table and chairs that is delightful to relax in on hot summer days.
We are a family living upstairs with 2 kids that get up at 7. We try to be as quiet as possible in mornings but soundproofing is not great- the nightly fee is reduced for this.

I had a lovely stay at Melanie's place. The photos are accurate, it's clean and I found it spacious (but I do live in London, FYI). There's plenty of storage, bed is comfortable, kitchen pretty well equipped (there was even cling wrap in the cupboard, a useful bonus). I made dinner a couple of times - just some simple pasta and salad bought from Granville Island market (recommended) and found the hob efficient and all easy to use. Washer and dryer were very useful as I went on a couple of hikes and there was a fair amount of rain while I was in Vancouver. The shower is also good, plenty of hot water, good pressure, towels etc. The location is great - very easy to transfer from the airport by train and bus and only about 5-15 mins on the sky train depending where you want to go in downtown. Commercial drive also has plenty of options for breakfasts, coffee, bars, food or takeaway (lots of sushi places/ Japanese or Thai food). I liked being close to Trout lake - good for a stroll or morning run. I will say, as is mentioned in the listing, it might not be for people who like to sleep late as you will hear some movement from upstairs in the morning, though not before 7:30/8am or so. I have no problem with this as I get up around this time anyway but it's worth being aware of if you prefer to sleep in. Melanie was also very accommodating with my check-in /check-out times, which was good. Overall, I really enjoyed my time here. Vancouver is a great fun city with loads of outdoor activities within easy reach and fantastic food. Craft beers too - loads of them! What more can you ask for?

To be honest, it was not that great experience for us (two oldies), in staying this place for 15 days. It's a basement suite. You can hear everything what's happening upstairs: adults walking, kids running around, and some conversations. They had a party in one weekend and music was quite loud. We had quite difficulty in getting enough sleep in this environment. We did not make any formal complain considering that it is their house, they must enjoy their living. But I would not put my basement suite for Air BnB if it creates that much of noise. But the basement suite was as described. It was very clean, well maintained and equipped. The hosts were quite pleasant. The location was quite handy and the neighbourhood was excellent.

Response from Tulip:
I am sorry it was too loud for you. The suite is actually soundproofed already, as much as possible. It is stated in our write up that it is not quiet, which is why the price is less than other comparable suites in our area.

We stayed with Melanie and her family for a week in their basement flat and it was exactly as described, clean, tidy and with everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable too. It was an easy walk to Commercial Drive and the Skytrain. We could definitely hear the family overhead in the mornings, but our days and nights were so full we mostly slept through it.

The apartment was as described. It was very clean and well equipped. There was even a high chair and a pack and play for our baby. We enjoyed the outdoor space as we could let the baby play outside. Mel's daughters kept him company from time to time which was adorable. Mel and her husband were very friendly and helpful. Perfect hosts! The location is very convenient with public transport and lots of restaurants/cafes/bars and shops just a few minutes walk away. We can confirm that you can hear the kids play upstairs, but it didn't bother us at all! It was a lovely stay at Mel's house and we would be glad to return one day.
