“Afternoon Tea Party with girlfriends”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Mary Ellen and her daughter were excellent hosts! The homemade scones & treats were excellent and the assortment of teas to choose from was beyond our expectations. The tea room itself was also beautifully decorated and felt like a little piece of England! I would for sure recommend this experience to others:)

Barry and Mary Ellen are outstanding hosts who share their beautiful home with graciousness. The made to order breakfast and treats were delicious. The view from the rooms is enough to make the stay worthwhile by itself. Every detail was carefully thought of to make us feel both pampered and at home during our stay. We enjoyed exploring the area. We plan to return in the summer to take advantage of the many hiking trails and kayaking in the area. We have stayed in many B & B’s and give this one our highest recommendation. Thank you for a lovely week-end away.

We appreciate you taking time to review your experience at Mainstay Oasis. You're helping future travelers to choose accommodation that may be the perfect fit for their next holiday. Our oceanfront property allows you to return this summer with your kayak and enjoy crabbing off our dock and swimming in our heated outdoor pool. It was totally our pleasure and delight to meet you and pamper you in our Port Moody home. You are the reason we enjoy the bed & breakfast business.
We look forward to your future return.

A group of ladies & men form our church booked this B&B for an afternoon tea. The venue is on the Burrad Inlet close to shopping, Newport Village, hospital & Rocky Point Park & the view is spectacular. The scones & other dainty savories & sweets were excellent. Everyone was impressed with the food,the home & the view & would definitely recommend it to friends & family.

Your kind review was most appreciated. It was our pleasure to serve you & your guests on this crisp, sunny day in January 2013. We specialize in scones, and dainty sandwiches or mini quiches and tortilla roll ups. Petit Fours and mini brownies with coffee, tea & cider.

In 2013 we plan to expand this service to Bridal Teas or any other occasion to celebrate. We're open to suggestions and always welcome feedback. Thank you for choosing Mainstay Oasis in "natural" Port Moody.

In an area with no hotels, this B & B is ideal as it is right on the water off Ioco Road, close to Newport Village, Crossroads Hospice and Eagle Ridge Hospital. Perfect peaceful location and home if you have family in the Hospice or Hospital.
I stayed in order to attend a party in the area, and Mary Ellen graciously offered to drive me to the party.
I saw the gorgeous large suite for couples getaway, and I stayed in a room with 2 twin beds. Nice to know it is a family/ child friendly B & B as well.

This B&B is one of the best we have ever stayed at (and we have stayed at B&Bs in Britain, France and other countries!). The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated, our rooms were lovely with a great view of Burrard Inlet, food was superb ... what more could you want? Mary Ellen and Barry are gracious hosts, and Jake (the pug) is a wonderful ambassador.

Thank you!

We had an absolutely fabulous time here. The house is beautiful, the views are fantastic, the room was spacious and comfortable with lovely views across the bay. Mary-Ellen and Barry went out of their way to make us feel at home. The breakfasts were delicious, and weather allowing, they were served outside on the patio so that we could enjoy the view of the sea and the friendly seal who popped up occasionally to greet us. We spent most of our days in and around Vancouver which is a bit away, but Mary-Ellen and Barry always kindly met us at the station and brought us to and from the B & B. I think next time I would stay longer here and just enjoy the beautiful area and the peace and tranquility away from the city.

It was our pleasure to provide accommodation and service to you. We are accesible by Public transportation using the Sky Train from the Vancouver Airport. We provide shuttle service from the exit station.
Another option is limousine pick up/drop off from the airport. There is much to see and do in Port Moody as it provides many amenities of an Urban Center.
Our Motto is: "Relax, Refresh and Recreate" in Natural Port Moody.
