“What a wonderful place !”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I've been at the Secret Garden for 4 nights : everything was perfect ! The beds were so comfortable and what a bathroom with a sauna...delightful ! We arrived there 3 hours before the sheduled time, and the owner has been so nice ! There was homemade blueberries muffins on the the table to welcome us. The bus stop is 2 minutes walking time, and you can get easily downtown Vancouver or to the beach from there. I definitly recommand you the Secret garden.

Hi Anne:

It was a pleasure to host you and Sarah while you were visiting her in Vancouver. I'm glad to hear that you had an opportunity to enjoy the sauna and that you liked our new bathroom. I hope I will see you again next time you visit Sarah at UBC.

Thanks for the great review!

Hi Brenda (and Steve, Kenny and Lisa):

I'm happy to read that you had a great stay at The Secret Garden. I enjoyed your company and hearing about all your experiences on your Alaskan cruise.

The garden is going crazy now with a mixture of heat and rain and all the summer flowers are starting to bloom - I'm glad you enjoyed the spring plantings.

I hope I will see you again if you have an opportunity to return to Vancouver. You were great guests.

“Great apartment for our week long stay - highly recommend”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated with comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. The bathroom was beautiful and there was also a sauna although we did not use it. Check-in was very easy and Noo-Noo was very responsive and thoughtful. The apartment and location is great for families with two playgrounds nearby. Dunbar community center playground is less than 2 blocks away and the newly renovated Lord Kitchener elementary school has two playgrounds and is located about 6 blocks away. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Hello Dennis:

Thanks so much for the great review! Also thanks for mentioning the Lord Kitchener playgrounds - my son went to school there from grades one through six and I hadn't thought to add that information to our listing which I will do now.

The kids were so cute feeding the birds in the garden - another happy memory for me! I look forward to seeing you and your family when you are next in Vancouver.

Hello Connie and Mike:

Thank you for taking the time to write us such a nice review. I'm glad you liked my Christmas baking - it's always rewarding when guests appreciate the little gestures. We have taken advantage of the low season and renovated the apartment even more - new carpet, new ceilings and lighting, new tile kitchen floor - and ... a completely new bathroom with tiled walk-in shower, new vanity, mirror, lighting, etc. - it's absolutely beautiful!

I look forward to seeing you again and your reaction to the improvements.
