About Helen Chan

My family and I have hosted foreign exchange students for over 10 years, and managed home rental suites for over 20 years. We love travelling and choose to stay with guest houses/b&b as often as we can. We appreciate the friendly comfort that comes with having the personal touch of home, and we hope to share it with you on your visit.

very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We stayed one month. Would have moved earlier but had to pay the full amount for the month. The bed was not comfortable. Was a foam bed and there was no proper quilted mattress cover over the thin cover on the foam. The sheets were very thin and worn out with the edging coming apart. The towels (2) and (1) face cloth that was provided were small, very cheap and worn out not to mention the bath mat that looked like a rag as it had bleach stains on it. We had to scrub out the fridge and freezer before we could put our food in it as it stunk of fish. The sofa was very low about 9 inches off the floor, and anyone over 5 feet could not sit comfortably as your hips were so low and your knees high. The sofa had a large stain on it.. The cable TV was not working properly for 3 weeks and no compensation was offered. There was no cleaning products to keep the apt. clean and we had to provide our own, as well as garbage bags, and coffee filters. You could hear the phone ringing, people talking and walking upstairs. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one for the price does not compare at all. There was no smoke detector in the suite and after I complained one was installed. There are much nicer places to stay that are less expensive in the area.

Way above my expectations

This apartment was clean and well appointed. The host was attentive to email inquiries leading up to our holiday, and available to help settle us in. Beautiful quiet refuge. Would absolutely recommend this rental.

Gorgeous Suite in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely stay. The suite is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is well equiped. It is very quiet, with no noise from the street or above. The house is also located right on a major bus route and there is always easy assess into New Westminster, Vancouver and North Vancouver. Helen and her family were not only warm and welcoming, but also extremely helpful. I would highly reccomend this rental to anyone visiting the area, a true home away from home.

A most confortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners very extremely courteous and professional in their welcome and throughout the stay. The kitchen is well equipped and other supplies were in abundance. We also asked for a few kitchen items during the stay and the owners fulfilled our request promptly.

Extremely happy with the experience, thanks you.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and I stayed here while visiting nearby family. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well equipped. It has a private entrance and the owners were very accommodating.

A better value than a hotel stay by far!

Very clean and nice!

  • 5 of 5

My family came to enrol my child at BCIT and see the sights. We were very pleased to find the one bedroom suite clean, comfortable and having everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for our needs as BCIT was only a 10 minute walk, and DT Vancouver was only a 20 minute drive. Metrotown mall (large mall with theatre) was also only 10 min. Helen was very nice and accessible if we had any concerns, which we had none. Highly recommend as affordable private accommodations. we will use again when we visit our child.
