House On Dunbar

3926 20 Ave West , Vancouver, BC V6S 1G4 Canada (Show map)


The Dunbar neighbourhood is a quiet family-oriented community with tree-lined streets and parks. The area is very quiet but central to many tourist attractions. 5 min to University of British Columbia 5 min to Kitsilano and the beaches 15 min to downtown Our elegant B&B features 3 bedrooms, all with en suite or private bathroom. Each has been recently redecorated. My goal is to provide you with all the amenities and luxuries possible to enable you to relax and enjoy your visit in my home and city.........indulge yourself

A very pleasant stay

I stayed 3 nights in the Albion room with an en suite bathroom and found it clean, spacious and with every amenity. The room faces the main road and as such cars driving by can be heard. However, there is no heavy traffic so overall there was no nuisance noise. The host is gracious and delightful, the breakfast yummy beyond description and the atmosphere relaxing. Parking is available on the road outside the door and in good supply at all times. One could hardly ask for more in a B&B.

Relaxing stay in Vancouver.

Hostess Joanne greeted us promptly & showed us to our room, the UBS suite. Room was comfy and well-equipped. Bathroom was small but well-equipped with towels toiletries, etc. Joanne was very knowledgeable about the city & local attractions & restaurants. She went so far as to have a book with pamphlets, maps, directions & driving directions! Her breakfasts were hearty & fresh. I would definitely recommend the House on Dunbar.

This was a great B&B with fabulous location close to the university. The breakfasts each morning were outstanding and very healthy. We spent some time outside in the garden one afternoon and it was very peaceful. We would definitely stay here again. Susan

JoAnne has a lovely house with some very contemporary decor. She is very accommodating and makes a hearty gourmet breakfast. A value for Vancouver area. Handy to University of BC. Not far from downtown. Try VIJ's Indian restaurant south of Granville. Get there before they open to get a table!

House on Dunbar - like staying at a friend's

4.6 on August 02, 2013

Fantastic hospitality, daily healthy cooked breakfasts along with fresh fruit salad and juice, spotless rooms.... All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. Joanne was a brilliant hostess - nothing too much trouble, helpful advice, lots of extra home comforts and treats. This was more like staying with a friend than in a B & B. Very convenient location - quiet, yet central to access numerous sights, with public transport within 5 minutes walk. Would highly recommend, and would stay there again, if we were ever in Vancouver.
