Lavender House Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed 13 August 2013

This was our first stay in a B&B (my wife and I) and it was a wonderful experience. We stayed for a whole week (July 22nd to 29th) visiting my in-laws, just a block away from there. Our host Johanna (pronounced Yohanna) was very friendly and interesting, giving us information about different things to do and see during our stay. She and her husband Derek really made us feel at home in their lovely and spacious house, situated in a nice and quiet area of New West. We had a chance to meet visitors from Germany, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Kelowna B.C, all very friendly. I usually have only cereal in the morning, but Johanna cooked a very delicious and different meal every morning. Wow, she is a great cook! Everything is made by her, even the juice. What a way to start off the day! The place was very clean and beds comfortable. We recommend this place very highly to anyone who want a different and more personal experience than in hotels. We will go back again some day. Thanks Johanna and Derek.

Thank you Johanna, we all enjoyed our stay, the creative breakfast and you going out of your way for us in so many ways. Thank you for your tip for Mongo Bongo for dinner. Loved your decode and delicious fruits.

Johanna was a great host, very friendly and communicative. We spent 3 nights at Lavender House and enjoyed the excellent breakfast each morning.
The rooms are very clean with a personal touch and all above really quiet.
Also the sourrounding was nice as New Westminster is a small city, where you can find everything you need, restaurants, shops etc.
We travelled with our own rental car and thus it was easy to reach from Vancouver Airport.

@Thanks to Johanna & Derek to make our stay in Vancouver so wonderful!

We spent two nights at lavender house in late July and had a very warm and friendly welcome. Breakfast was wonderful with creative foods served each morning. Excellent place to stay when visiting Vancouver as the Skytrain is withing reasonable distance.

We had a wonderful stay, it was our last night in Canada and we wish we went there earlier.
Its nice and quiet, it was great talking to Johanna and Derek, lovely people. We got a great breakfast(and apparently everyone staying there thinks the same). Hope to go back in a few years!

Thank you so much for the review both here and on the other website I am affiliated with. It was lovely to meet you both and only wish it could have for a little longer as we enjoyed your conversation so much. Perhaps we will see you again one day.

Back again to Lavender House - a most enjoyable experience. Johanna and Derek go out of their way to ensure that you feel at home. Excellent breakfasts. The Serenity and Tranquility rooms allow use of the kitchenette with easy access to the unit through the side door. Room and bathroom were very clean - only down side was the distance to the bathroom. Well situated in New Westminster with easy access to transit. Excellent value. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Serenity or Tranquility rooms on lower level allow use of kitchenette and separate entrance

Johanna made our stay most comfortable and warm. Breakfast is excellent and the experience very positive as she is very outgoing, informative and very congenial. The location for those needing to be on the East side of Vancouver, couldn't be better with all amenities close by
