The Retreat at The Ivy on Parker is a comfortable self-contained apartment, perfect as a home away from home, whether for short or long term stays. The Retreat features a separate ground level entrance accessed via our perennial gardens. Entrance is through the bedroom that features a king size bed with luxury linens, air conditioning and French doors leading into the living area. Hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, a desk with a comfortable workspace, flat screen TV, WIFI, and private in-unit laundry facilities are all part of the luxury found in The Retreat. A full gourmet kitchen has every amenity, including a dishwasher and microwave, lots of storage and counter dining seating. The spacious bathroom features a heated tile floor, clawfoot tub and separate walk-in shower. Seating on the front porch and front garden is available for guest use. The Retreat was originally named for Joey, a little boy who lived in the house in the 1950’s. The previous owners found Joey’s secret hiding place with many stashed treasures, including Joey’s yearbook from a local elementary school.

Luxury at a great price - can’t wait to come back!
Great location, 10 minute walk max to tons of great restaurants and shops on commercial dr. including grocery stores and convenience locations, as well as the #20 bus route that takes you right downtown. The room was absolutely gorgeous, heated floor in the bathroom was such a bonus! We took a relaxing soak in the luxurious tub and were delighted with the provided soaps, lotions, and bubble bath! The towels were lush and the bathrobes were perfect. We almost wished it had been chillier so we could have taken advantage of the fireplace. The room was bright and airy and the temperature control was fabulous, always comfortable. We enjoyed coffee on the second floor terrace in the morning, too. If there were other tenants in the house we didn’t notice - although it is a heritage building we found it very quiet and private! We are so looking forward to our next trip to Vancouver and hope to book at the Ivy again.
