I purchased this property because it is about 30 minutes away from Vancouver. It is great location in quiet neighborhood. Close to downtown and close to nature.
This is a perfect place for those looking for an entire apartment in the suburbs of Vancouver. From this location in Coquitlam you can access everything that the Vancouver area has to offer. Easy access south to White Rock, easy access to Vancouver either by car or via SkyTrain and it is only a 2 hour drive north to Whistler.
The location is awesome on a quiet cul-de-sac in a quiet neighbourhood. There is a shopping mall minutes away.
The actual apartment is located on the main floor - no stairs at all. It has its own off-street parking. The aparment is beautifully decorated and kept up very well. Two bedrooms separated nicely from each other if you want some space between mom and dad and kids or two traveling couples. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a full-size stove with an oven and full-size fridge. The entire apartment is nicely appointed - bedrooms are beautifully done with awesome beds and linens.
Teresa and her daughter Camila took care of every need we had. They live upstairs but do not intrude although they welcome questions and requests for advice.
Last but certainly NOT least is this is an outstanding value - you can barely get a hotel room for the price of this entire apartment and it includes cable t.v. and free wi-fi.
Thanks for an amazing week. We loved your place Teresa and it so suited our needs.
We had a wonderful time staying at Teresa's rental home. The listing descriptions and photos online were very accurate. Her place was clean, contemporary, safe, and conveniently located near shops and restaurants. Coquitlam Mall is only a five minute drive, for example. The place comes with shared parking in her driveway, and a backyard for private use during your stay. The rental can comfortably accommodate 4-6 persons. The modern kitchen is fully equipped, and the unit comes with its own washer and dryer. Other bonus features includes free Wi-Fi. The unit is on the first floor of a duplex home with a separate back entrance, while Teresa lives upstairs with her family. Aside from the occasional sounds of footsteps upstairs, the rental and the neighborhood was generally very peaceful and quiet.
Vancouver is about a 30-60 minute drive away, depending on traffic and rush hour conditions, and whether you get to use the HOV lanes. The area of Coquitlam is definitely suburban, very lush with trees and vegetation, and away from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver city. Teresa and her family were very friendly and great hosts.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to fellow travelers. Thank you for your hospitality, Teresa!
This apartment had everything one wishes for a pleasant stay. It was comfortable, spacious and there was a garden where we enjoyed breakfast a couple of times. From this apartment it was very easy to travel to either downtown Vancouver or eastwards to the Rocky Mountains. The quiet, safe neighborhood was another plus and we will remember this place as a wonderful home on our first trip to beautiful British Columbia.
We had a great and relaxing time in your house Teresa! Everything was perfect! Well decorated house, in a perfect location for all attractions in Vancouver. Thank you so much for all your tips and suggestions - a great help for people coming for the first time in Vancouver. We definitely will come and stay again in your house - it sure fills like home. The house is located close to restaurants and groceries stores as well as to the big mall. You are not going to miss anything. Just perfect!
Again thank you and hope to see you again when coming to Vancouver!

My stay was wonderful as all amenities were perfect in this warm, very clean and charming apartment in a home. I slept well at night (quiet neighbourhood) allowing me to work hard nearby and play at night. I even got a free Salsa dance lesson. My host was warmhearted and very considered. She thought of everything upfront and then left me alone to enjoy my stay. I highly recommend staying here.
