Excellent Stay!!!

Crystal's View Bed and Breakfast is a true gem! Crystal is extremely accommodating and just an amazing woman. From the time we arrived to the time we left everything was amazing including the breakfast which would be similar to what you would get at a 5 star restaurant. I would recommend Crystal's View to anyone with no hesitation. Certainly a first class stay and I will be back!


WARM LOVING B&B - Truely Amazing

5 on August 11, 2015

Crystal's View and Home is truly a gem. Crystal's View is nestled in a great location with a scenic drive. The stunning panoramic view of North Vancouver from our private balcony. Breakfast was creative and delicious. The location is home to many hikes and scenic walks in the neighbourhood and hope one day our adventures will lead us back to this beautiful place. Relaxing at its finest. A very warm thank you to Crystal.


Fantastic B&B with Fantastic Hosts!

5 on April 22, 2015

Crystal's View B&B is a beautiful property with stunning views of Vancouver harbour. I stayed in the Rossini Room for two nights, and was very impressed. The room is tastefully decorated, spacious, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I had a chance to see some of the other rooms, and they are all very well appointed, and they all have views. The breakfasts each morning were amazing...fresh fruit, home-baked muffins, omelets, etc. Crystal is an incredible host with great ideas of places to eat and visit around town. She made me feel so welcome, like part of the family. This time was a business trip. I am looking forward to returning when I can bring my wife with me!


Wonderful hospitality

Thank you to Crystal and John for the wonderful hospitality at Crystal's View B&B. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have all the amenities you could want. Breakfast was a treat, with Crystal's signature dish of poached eggs with mushroom sauce, as well as a beautifully arranged fruit plate. The View is of course fantastic, and so is their hospitality!


Generosity beyond our expectations!

5 on January 25, 2015

Crystal's View is truly a gem. A surprise one night stay for my husband and I on our wedding night was a special gift Crystal helped plan with me. As soon as Crystal found out that we were "honeymooning" at her bed and breakfast, she went above and beyond to make our stay even more special and personal. She was quick to respond to emails - I thrive on efficiency so I was very pleased. Crystal's View is nestled in a great location with a scenic drive. We were welcomed with a warm smile and an exciting congratulations! I was still in my wedding dress and my husband in his suit!! My husband and I were overwhelmed with the hosts' generosity - they made us homemade chocolate mousse for dessert, fresh flowers in our beautiful spacious bedroom with decorated paper wedding bells, and a beautiful hand written wedding card - one that we will treasure for years to come. To top things off - they had just renovated all the bedrooms with new mattresses and we were the first to try them out!!! The mattress was by far the most comfortable we had ever slept in. We woke up the next morning to a stunning panoramic view of North Vancouver from our private balcony. Breakfast was creative and delicious. We had friendly conversation and gave Crystal company in the kitchen as she whipped up some magical dishes for us. Although we would have loved to have stayed another night - we had family plans the very next morning. The location is home to many hikes and scenic walks in the neighbourhood and hope one day our adventures will lead us back to this beautiful place. Before leaving for the day, we were given extra time in the morning to enjoy the jacuzzi tub jets tub in our bedroom, as we were not able to make full use of it the night before. Relaxing at its finest. A very warm thank you to Crystals View for making our wedding night and morning exceptionally memorable. You made us feel like one of yours.


Best B & B

5 on January 25, 2015

Everything a B & B should be; a home away from home with great service. Breakfast is excellent in quality and presentation. View is spectacular. Room comfortable and very clean. Crystal and John were exceptional hosts; friendly and most helpful in providing information about area attractions and dining. Could not have expected more. Will definitely stay here whenever we are visiting Vancouver area. Vera and Len - New Jersey


Treats you like family....even better

5 on December 30, 2014

The room was spotless and tastefully decorated.....the view at night of Vancouver harbour is breath-taking. We didn't want to leave.


4th Visit

5 on December 11, 2014

I stayed in a different suite this visit....The view of Vancouver harbour at night is wonderful. I had my own private patio and entrance to my suite....I think the fact that it's my 4th visit says it all.....privacy...great breakfast...wonderful hosts. If you are about to make your first visit to Vancouver or have made many visits, you need to stay here to experience the west coast hospitality.


The BEST B&B I've ever stayed in!!!

5 on December 08, 2014

Crystal's B&B should get six stars, it's really that good! I've traveled and stayed in many B&B's and none have been this plush and inviting. What makes Crystal's so fantastic is the host herself. She and her family go to great lengths to make you feel special like one of the family. I've stayed with her many times over the years and have seen her spend literally hours going out of her way to accommodate her own guests and find space for travelers who were stranded with no where to stay or had family emergencies. Crystal and John are incredible hosts and even better human beings. I love the ambiance, the plush accommodations and the warmth. Highest Rating!!!


Hidden 5-star Oasis

4.8 on November 27, 2014

I chose Crystal's View B&B for our 5 year wedding anniversary and so glad that I did. The service was very pleasant, spectacular views of the city (don't see this from the suburbs) and fantastic food made the weekend so enjoyable. We will return to Crystal's View for another special occasion.
