Great B&B one block off of Commercial Drive
We had a great experience at the Ivy on Parker Guest House in August 2023. Janet and Richard were great hosts and the house is very well appointed. The house is in a great neighbourhood with big leafy trees. The house has a very nice garden.
Rooms were spotless and the bathroom was very modern. The A/C split unit in the room was very, very quiet and let us cool down the room on the warm Vancouver evenings.
We stayed in Molly's Room, woke up each day and walked down to Commercial and around the corner to Moja Coffee. Make sure to ask Janet for her suggestions for restaurants - we did and they paid off.
