O' Canada, you would exclaimed!
Visited Vancouver for a too-short of two days during the gloomiest month of November 2011.
Arriving wet and unsure of what to expect, the charming historical house brought comfort and warm. Rooms opened up with wonderful decorations and the bathroom was intricately decorated.
Suzanne was most welcoming as she took her time and with great patience, explaining the details of the surrounding areas, of the most mundane task, of where to dine in. Very personalized opinions, sharing her experiences with the area of restaurants along Robson and in theWest End area, ranging from Asian, to local seafood, to heartwarming restaurants.
The next morning, the breakfast was simply the best. Cheryl was such a great chef! The best pancakes (second best was in the USA) ever tasted, and free flow of coffee, tea, milk, cookies all day round, the only thing to worry would be the extra baggage put on.
After exploring Vancouver for half a day, the rainy weather had to usher back home to O'Canada, where the adventure of Canada was continued with Suzanne, who most willingly and enthusiastically shared and exchanged different perspectives of Vancouver's life and culture. Whether it is serious topics on immigration policies, health systems, or the more mundane topics like the weather, traveling to Richmond and Peru, it was really a wonderful conversation with wit and humor and knowledge-gaining with Suzanne.
The last morning (the ferry ride was postponed to enjoy the breakfast here), Suzanne made the breakfast, because Cheryl had fallen ill. It was another surprise of wonderfully made sandwiches along with some fruit.
With heartfelt warm, heavy steps, while turning heads behind and viewing this charming house, O'Canada!, exclaimed loudly, one would understand that people makes up one of the important component on the charm of a city, a heart of a country.
(Room rates were reasonable because it was off-peak season. Otherwise, it would not be considered very budget, but definitely it would be value-for-money. Toilets would be cold through the winter season, but do be distracted by the stylish decorations)
