Happy Garden Bed and Breakfast

1128 Rose Street , Vancouver, BC V5L 4K8 Canada (Show map)


The Happy Garden Bed and Breakfast suite can best be described as a colorful and artistic fusion of funk and functionality. Situated on the ground level of a 1909 Victorian style home, The Happy Garden Suite boasts a private back entrance with views of the Brittany slate courtyard and an outdoor sitting area and breakfast deck surrounded by a collage of wildflowers and deep woods perennials. Inside, vibrant overtones reminiscent of Spain warmly envelope a “gallery like” impression that include a private ensuite, antique armoire, cable television, phone and wireless internet, breakfast nook and fully equipped kitchenette.

We had the pleasure of spending several days at the Happy Garden which is tucked away in a sweet residential neighborhood just blocks from bustling Commercial --- an avenue of dining, pubs, boutiques, and what not. First and foremost, dear garden lovers, this is a sanctuary. Thoughtful breakfasts are served on the patio so that guests may take in the beauty of the gardens. A menu is provided, including "the best scrambled eggs ever" and crepes to die for. The coffee is organic and the orange juice is fresh squeezed. At the Happy Garden, you have a lovely quaint downstairs area with a sitting room and kitchen. We enjoyed our evening on the front porch, chatting and laughing with the neighbor. It is a place to call home, away from home. Do not miss the opportunity to appreciate the experience to be pampered and enjoy the hospitality of Happy Garden. We look forward to our next "visit".

We`ve been in Vancouver for the first time and we loved it. The happy garden b&b was wonderful and we loved the delicious breakfast, Malcolm served every morning. Malcolm, it was a pleasure to meeting you. Hopefully, we can come back very soon. Greetings from Germany Dirk & Franzi

HOst was very welcoming. Book your breakfast the night before and then simply enjoy. Very good choice of breakfasts tastefully served in the quiet serenity of a very elegant back yard platio (weather permitting). All three breakfasts were memorable.

B & B forever

Nathalie and I wish to graciously applaud our host Malcolm of his bed and breakfast facility.Our trip to Vancouver to see the sights was both relaxing and educational and certainly warrants at least a couple more visits to see what we didn't get an opportunity to see.We will naturally co ordinate our future trips with Malcolm.The breakfasts were exquisite and the lodging was awesome! The ambience that Malcolm's pleasant disposition and concern for his guests satisfaction made for a standing ovation.We highly recommend Malcolm's bed and breakfast to everyone as a matter a fact we insist.Thank you once again and we shall see you again soon. Nathalie and Stefan
