Peace and Quiet in the Heart on Convenience. We stayed in this cozy apartment from October 17-26, 2013 and were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of this fully functioning apartment. It was very quiet and peaceful being right across from the park setting of Trout Lake. Yet don't let the quietness make you think that this place isn’t located with all the convenience of being in the heart of the bustling and trendy Commercial Drive region.
It was a great place to stay while we visited our family.

Excellent Value, Location & Service! We highly recommend the Trout Lake Suite for your stay in Vancouver. The location in right across the road from the brand new Trout Lake Community Centre where you can exercise take yoga classes, Tai Chi & ice skate. It is seconds from Trout Lake (a beautiful walking park). We had a car while we were in Vancouver and there is free parking right in front on the Suite. The owners are very environmentally conscious. We like to recycle even when we are on vacation. (I always feel David Suzuki is watching me!) You can recycle when you are at Trout Lake Suite. If you do not have a car, you can pick up the Skytrain Station at Commercial and Broadway. Vancouver has an excellent transit system. Your hosts at Trout Lake Suite are the very kind and considerate Jen and Jean. The are very bright, interesting people who know what is going on in Vancouver. They provide excellent information for guests. They were extremely helpful to us. At the same time, they were very unobtrusive and respected our privacy. Like we said, we highly recommend Trout Lake Suite and hope to return.

Home Away From Home.  This was my home away from home for a month while my apartment was being renovated and I couldn't have asked for a better set-up. Jen and Jean have thought of everything to make a guest's stay as easy, comfortable and homelike as possible. The apartment is lovely, clean as a whistle and very livable. If you are looking for a place to stay during renos - this is the place! If you are visiting Vancouver, this would be a terrific home-base while you explore the City. Highly recommended!

Amazing Place in Great Location. We absolutely loved staying at this place. It is in great location, very affordable, clean, pet friendly, wonderful hosts, parking and most importantly no hidden costs and charges. We will definitely be back and will recommend this place to all our friends and family.

Awesome People, Awesome Place. We wanted to park the car, see the city and still have some place for the big dog to exercise. This is the place for all of those things. We loved the location - it's 10 minutes from downtown - and the accommodations were lovely and quiet. Trout Lake is across the street and a great friendly dog park - Moose had a blast meeting his Canadian counterparts. Homeowners Jen and Jean provided great suggestions on sites to see and transportation options. Walking distance to public transportation, great restaurants and shops. And you couldn't ask for more gracious and kind people to work with. Stay here if you want to experience the city from a comfortable, quiet environment with a beautiful 65 acre park across the street.

First Time Lucky. When we set out on our month long holiday we were a little concerned as we had never stayed in holiday rentals before. Trout Lake was certainly an excellent introduction to this type of accommodation. The suite was lovely with a private entrance and a sunny welcoming interior. The suite was well equipped and the owners had taken great care in stocking the unit with everything a person might need. The unit has a great location across from a beautiful park and the surrounding community is filled with interesting shops and restaurants with character. However,the best part of our experience was the owners themselves. They were extremely accommodating and very interested in what we were doing. They had numerous suggestions of things to do, places to go and things to see.  All in all this is a great place to stay and it will certainly be our destination when next we visit Vancouver.

Perfect Place to Stay. We wanted somewhere to relax when we had tired ourselves out exploring Vancouver and this suite was absolutely wonderful. It was clean, quiet at night and it had everything we needed. Jen and Jean were super friendly hosts who gave us tips of things to do and how to get around. The skytrain station is just a few minutes walk away and from there it's quick and easy to head into the city. We also enjoyed spending lazy evenings in the park across the road.

Comfortable Unit Across the Road From a Great Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trout Lake Suite. The unit is comfortable - and that includes the bed - and it is well-appointed. We did not cook in the unit on this trip, but the kitchen was well-stocked with pots, cooking utensils and crockery for four. Our hosts, Jen and Jean were helpful, available, and non-intrusive and we enjoyed their lovely dog. We chose this unit because our dog could stay with us and she thoroughly enjoyed being able to have a nap in the garden and walking in the park, with a lake, across the road. This suite is not downtown and about a 15 minute walk to the Skytrain station, Nanaimo, with fast and frequent train service. I have no trouble recommending this suite.

Would Love to Return! We very much enjoyed our stay in this comfortable apartment. The owners live upstairs and are incredibly knowledgeable about the area. Just tell Jen your interests/hobbies, and she will direct you to the must-see sites in Vancouver. The layout of the apartment maximizes the amount of space. There was quite enough space for my husband and I and our teenage daughter. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the apartment was immaculate. If you're lucky enough to be there on a Saturday, don't miss the farmer's market in the park across the street!
