The apartment was perfect. Lovely and clean. In quiet location. Beds are very comfortable. Parking.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 14 nights in July/August 2016. The apartment had a lovely garden with table and chairs outside to sit and enjoy meal or drink. A short walk to local shops, diners, coffee shops etc. A 15 min walk to local bus /train to Downtown Vancouver.

The local Mall has a variety of shops and a great food court.

On Falcon Drive is a nice pub, the Frog and Nightgown, they do lovely meals and have various entertainents on through the week, like live bands and karoke nights.

There are local walks and nature spotting in the area, we walked the Coquitlam Crunch, which starts at the local park near the apartment, the walk takes you up the nearby mountain, you can continue from the walk to other walks through the woods and hills.

Teresa and Alberto were very helpful during our stay.

Highly recommended for a stay in Coquitlam, Canada.

We used the local transport, buying a Day Pass for $9.75 at the London Drugs store in the mall, this let us use the buses, trains and Sea Bus all day, hopping on and off at various locations, a great way to explore the local area and go into Downtown Vancouver centre.

In Downtown at Canada Place the visitors centre was fantastic for help and advice, we booked tickets through them to Grouse Mountain and this was a little cheaper.

Gas Town is very interesting and good for holiday pressies.

Very Comfortable Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained. The owner Teresa met us when we arrived and showed us how everything worked. Great customer service. This is a good location as we have family in the area. Very good access to Trans Canada Highway. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The accommodations were much better than a hotel room. We would stay again when in the area.

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this place. With my large family, there was enough room for everyone. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and great location with nearby shopping and dining.

And best of all, the hostess, Theresa was very accommodating and helpful. Thank you very much!

We are definitely coming back next time we are in Vancouver.

Lovely very clean 2 bedroom accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The 2 bedroom suite was lovely. Very nicely presented/decorated. Very clean. Great design with split floor plan, so bedrooms were apart from each other which was great for privacy. Pull down couch in living room, so accommodated our group of 5 nicely. Had a lovely garden area/covered patio to enjoy a morning coffee or happy hour. We came over from Victoria for a pickleball tournament at Pinetree Recreation Centre. The suite was in very close proximity to the rec centre, shopping and restaurants. Would definitely recommend Teresa's suite! ...and will definitely keep it on our list for future travel to Coquitlam. Thanks for providing us with your lovely accommodation Teresa!
