Home away from Home

5 on June 23, 2014

My sister and I recently stayed here, and chose it due to it's proximity to an aunt we were visiting. We had the Treehouse Suite and it was large, quiet, truly a home away from home, with a lovely wraparound patio, deck chairs, and table and chairs. I connected to the internet via my Ipad and had no difficulties whatsoever. The breakfasts were delicious and filling, and I cannot think of a thing that Barb did not think of for her guest's comfort. Each room is equipped with a small refrigerator, coffee maker, plates, cutlery, wine glasses, filtered water, cream for your coffee, sugar, umbrella's, housecoats, slippers, books, magazines, ...you name it, it was there. They will even do your laundry for a small charge. Barb was very helpful with directions printed them off for us when needed. One day we went to Victoria Island and requested a box breakfast and there was so much in it, that it lasted us the whole day! The bed and breakfast is located on a convenient bus route, and we found it very easy to get around the city from there, and very economical. A trip to the airport took about 30 minutes and cost $1.75! I will definitely recommend this B & B to everyone!

Awesome Anniversary Weekend

4.8 on October 11, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse. I rated the dining as a 4 star simply because we didn't join them for the gourmet breakfast. But they were so kind as to leave us a continental breakfast of fruit, hard boiled eggs, freshly made bread and butter, juice, milk and more. The hospitality at the Treehouse was outstanding. And it's true what they say...We never left our suite at the top of the trees...The bed was heavenly as was the jacuzzi tub. It was perfect for a rainy Saturday. Thanks so much to Barb, Don, Diego, Vicky, Grace, Mario and Joy for making our 29th anniversary very special.

Fun in Vancouver for 2 nites!

On Aug 20-22, my cousin and myself went to Vancouver from Victoria to visit another cousin and her husband, and decided to stay at a b&b. When looking on the websites, I decided on A Treehouse, as I really liked their description and also the wonderful reception I rec'd from Barb, the owner when I asked for info regarding the b + b. She is a delight! She also provided us with an amazing gourmet breakfast both mornings, fulfilling my request for a gluten free menu. We would stay again and recommend it to anyone!

Vancouver's hidden jewel

My wife and I recently stayed in the treetop and it far exceeded our expectations. A quiet get away whose exterior belies the luxury within. The very artfully decorated rooms were only surpassed by the personal attention of Mario, the in-house chef whose exquisitely displayed dishes were delicious to the nth degree. Thanks Barb and Mario. Fred and Pam.

My boyfriend and I stayed at A Treehouse B&B for our first visit to Vancouver. We stayed in the Treetop Suite for a total of 9 days and we loved every bit of it! The suite was amazingly beautiful and had everything we could possibly need. It was very private, quiet, and peaceful, The staff are wonderful and really go above and beyond in every way. The breakfasts were incredible, lots of variety, and always tasty! I recommend A Treehouse to anyone travelling to Vancouver, we will certainly be staying there again on our next trip!

We booked A Treehouse for our group of seven this April. The accommodation is very good with all the home comforts. It is light and airy and spotlessly clean. My husband and I took the top suite which was the best of the rooms but the others were more than satisfactory and we all had access to a beautiful, communal sitting area. The house is well located for easy access to downtown Vancouver and the airport. It is also very quiet at night; a godsend when struggling with jetlag. Now to the highlight! Barb is the most generous host. She, along with the lovely Mario, provided us with the most delicious, imaginative breakfasts. During the ten days I don’t think we ate the same thing twice and each day typically saw 5 or 6 different courses. It’s all very healthy fare which suited us fine though we struggled at times to do justice to it as there was just so much food. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend A Treehouse to anyone who finds hotels a little impersonal or who require more extensive accommodation (you can effectively book the entire house as we did). It was a home away from home - Wonderful!

Outstanding across the board!

If you want THE BEST gourmet breakfast you will ever have, then this is your destination! We stayed at this b&b for two nights prior to our cruise to Alaska. Both breakfasts were beyond fabulous! Barb not only serves a fantastic breakfast, she is helpful, engaging, and a great conversationalist. Her home is impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. Plus the location is great with easy access to bus stops. I would highly recommend this b&b to everyone!

Great value for money! Legendary breakfasts!

Our first trip to Vancouver turned out perfect and one of the reasons why was staying at the TreeHouse B&B! The hosts (and their helpers) are great, breakfasts are incredible, beds are extraordinary and the tranquility of the place and the room (Pacific Suite) is legendary! Every morning we would wake up refreshed (sooo important!) and ready to face a new day with a schedule abounding in business activities and sightseeing. Barb prepares mean gourmet breakfasts (organic) - a must! Thank you, guys! We had such a good time at the B&B and will definitely come again when the opportunity arises!

Lovely Atmosphere

For relaxation, a lovely atmosphere and great breakfasts I would go back to A Tree House anytime I'm in Vancouver. There are so many good things about this place! I felt at home, the room and bed were super comfortable, and I had all the privacy I needed. Breakfasts were absolutely fantastic and the B&B seems to attract good people to converse with, making breakfast more enjoyable. And, there were eagles nesting in the pines nearby! I truly had a great time!

A Lovely Stay

I was in Vancouver getting my daughter settled in at UBC and Barb was an amazing hostess. The B&B is centrally located and Barb was there to help with all of my travel needs within town, restaurant suggestions and even offered to help my daughter if she needs anything after I went home. And those gourmet breakfasts.... absolutely fantastic! Everything stated on the website was exactly as promised and more. Next time I'm in Vanouver I will definitely be staying at the TreeHouse.
