Very nice B&B. Small but comfortable room. Hosts were very helpful and accomodating. We arrived somewhat early but that was not a problem. Most amazing were the breakfasts (made by Lynn). They looked like they were out of Gourmet magazine in terms of the beautiful...More
Lovely home in a lively part of Van Couver- close to public transportation. Very comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous! Will come back. Michael and Lynn are charming, helpful hosts. Truly a standout B&B.
This is a superb B&B and represents excellent value for money. Beautiful and original features, a laptop in case you didn't bring one, goodies in the fridge and home baked cookies. On top of that a wonderful and first class breakfast, both taste and presentation...More

Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
