“Neat and tidy in a convenient location. Perfect”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is my second stay in the Myrtle Suite and I enjoyed my stay as much as I did the first time. As a craftsman myself, the first thing I notice about the apartment is the quality of the work that went into the place including touches like: heated bathroom floors, high end fixtures and faucets, pocket doors, great appliances, washer and dryer, etc. I have stayed in many rentals over the years, and they have it just right here. The place is spotless. The kitchen has everything you need and just enough equipment so that you want for nothing while still having room for your own belongings and food. I was working in Burnaby, and I could get on highway 1 in minutes which made for a quick commute. Very convenient location. Heading up to Whistler/Blackcomb was a favorite day trip during this years stay. Highly recommended.

“A Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

After an exhausting move I found myself in between possession days and decided to try Myrtle Suite for a few days. Bob and Toni are terrific hosts and I could not have felt more at home. The suite is full of lovely homey touches; fresh flowers from the garden and a kitchen stocked with all the basics and more. It’s in a great location with mountain and water views, lots of places to walk, have coffee or dine out and downtown Vancouver is only a quick bus ride away. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Myrtle Suite.

“WOW! a really great place to stay”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My wife is a clean freak and Toni and Bob Shaw's suite passed her test with flying colors. We knew the neighborhood a little bit from visiting Vancouver before. I just didn't realize all the great spots for dining and shopping were so close. Toni made detailed comments on a number of places that we might like and she was a perfect 10 for choices.
The little restaurants are abundant and food choices too numerous to mention. From fancy to inexpensive Toni's reviews were a hit.
You can tell how much Toni likes her suite. She even uses 650 (TC) Egyptian cotton sheets on the bed. Talk about luxurious - they are wonderful.
I can't express how great a time we had with these people. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we stopped in the driveway.
I would certainly recommend this suite in a super quiet neighborhood.

“A super property - well equipped - a real "home from home"”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Toni and Bob are excellent hosts and attentive to their guests' needs without being in their face. Myrtle Suite has its own parking space at the rear of the property and guests are welcome to utilise Toni and Bob's back garden for relaxation, as well as enjoying their home-grown herbs and tomatoes! Bob let us store our bicycles in his secure garden shed and gave us our own key. The Internet is high speed and, on the one and only occasion that we had a problem, Bob resolved this very quickly. No need to bring towels or sheets, Toni supplies everything. The washing machine and dryer in Myrtle Suite were a very practical asset. The location is really interesting.......not in the epicentre of downtown Vancouver but close to it - a 15 minute easy drive in the car (Toni told us that it was also an easy bus ride but we didn't try it as the car was more convenient for us getting to and from Stanley Park, with our bikes in the car). The property is part of an established community, located close to the water and with a mixture of urban and mountain views. We walked to a great part of outer-town....Commercial Drive......where you will find a wonderful array of restaurants and shops, frequented by the local community. In summary, if you enjoy experiencing a city as the locals experience it, this is a great choice. If you feel more comfortable being right in the heart of a city, with all the tourist attractions within a 10 minute walk, better to stay in one of the large hotels in town. We think that Myrtle Suite is a real gem.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This apartment was immaculate with a well-equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer. The owners were super helpful with any questions about the community or sight-seeing and even supplied us with homemade granola and muffins. They even invited us to a yummy dinner upstairs. The apartment was quiet, comfortable and we felt completely at home.
