"Generosity beyond our expectations! What a gem!"
01/25/15 Time T Vancouver, Canada
Crystal's View is truly a gem. A surprise one night stay for my husband and I on our wedding night was a special gift Crystal helped plan with me. As soon as Crystal found out that we were "honeymooning" at her bed and breakfast, she went above and beyond to make our stay even more special and personal. She was quick to respond to emails - I thrive on efficiency so I was very pleased. Crystal's View is nestled in a great location with a scenic drive. We were welcomed with a warm smile and an exciting congratulations! I was still in my wedding dress and my husband in his suit!! My husband and I were overwhelmed with the hosts' generosity - they made us homemade chocolate mousse for dessert, fresh flowers in our beautiful spacious bedroom with decorated paper wedding bells, and a beautiful hand written wedding card - one that we will treasure for years to come. To top things off - they had just renovated all the bedrooms with new mattresses and we were the first to try them out!!! The mattress was by far the most comfortable we had ever slept in. We woke up the next morning to a stunning panoramic view of North Vancouver from our private balcony. Breakfast was creative and delicious. We had friendly conversation and gave Crystal company in the kitchen as she whipped up some magical dishes for us. Although we would have loved to have stayed another night - we had family plans the very next morning. The location is home to many hikes and scenic walks in the neighbourhood and hope one day our adventures will lead us back to this beautiful place. Before leaving for the day, we were given extra time in the morning to enjoy the jacuzzi tub jets in our bedroom, as we were not able to make full use of it the night before. Relaxing at its finest. A very warm thank you to Crystals View for making our wedding night and morning exceptionally memorable. You made us feel like one of yours.

Crystal is such a sweet, friendly person and provides a good B&B experience. Our suite was comfortable and clean, the TV had a ton of channels, and the bathroom was large and clean. The breakfasts were well made and delicious. My husband is gluten free and she worked very hard to accommodate him at meals. She also helped us to decide where to go and what to do in Vancouver, which was nice for us since we've never been before. The view of the city is BEAUTIFUL. Also I loved the location since we were in a nice neighborhood and close to the city and other attractions. We enjoyed it!
"The Perfect Bed & Breakfast"
01/01/15 a_dion87 Bellingham, Washington
Crystal's View is the quintessential European B&B experience. The house itself is beatuifully decorated and the individual guest rooms have a tasteful Old World charm. Although our visit occurred during winter, you would never know it was cold outside as the thick down comforter on our bed kept us snug and content. The bed itself was extremely comfortable and I had a better night sleep at Crystal's than at many quality hotels. It should be stated that everything in the house is maintained with exacting cleanliness and our bathroom with its large tub gave us no cause for complaint. The location of Crystal's View is perfect for its convenient access to the city without the hassle of downtown. As a pedestrian I could not ask for more than a bus stop directly behind the B&B with a bus that took us directly to the Londsdale Quay. Even on New Year's Eve we were able to easily slip in and out of the West End and for those wanting to enjoy city nightlife the B&B is also covered by the nightbus. For those who love nature Crystal's also offers access to beautiful parks and beaches. On the recommendation of our host we were able to take a lovely walk through the woods only a few minutes away from the B&B. A bed and breakfast is nothing without quality food and here Crystal's really shines. Upon arrival we were treated to an excellent tea service complete with a variety of tea biscuits made from scratch. Breakfast itself was absolutely divine and you would do yourself a diservice not to try Crystal's crepes. If given a chance to add dinner onto your stay, you will not be disappointed. The table setting was nicer than many restaurants in the US and Canada! What sets Crystal's View apart from a hotel or even other bed and breakfasts is its considerate and wonderful hosts. A truly European B&B makes you feel as if you were staying in your own home. Crystal and her husband were not only welcoming, but a joy to spend time with. They are both well acquainted with Vancouver and full of excellent recommendations. My husband and I cannot wait to return. This is the only place we will stay in Vancouver. And of course the view really is amazing!

I had the pleasure to stay at Crystal's View for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. This place is a hidden gem in Vancouver. The view was amazing, service was so pleasant and food was amazing. Staying at Crystal's view made the weekend. If there could be a 10-star rating, this B&B will get it.

I call Crystal's View my 2nd home...I automatically book there now while in the Vancouver area. The location is perfect for viewing Vancouver Harbour and see the ships arriving.....also can see Stanley Park which is only a 10-15 minute drive and the park is always a must for a short drive or long walk to relax. You can always count on a great breakfast and look out the window to Vancouver.
"Magical City Hideway"

Truly a magical place to spend a long weekend in North Vancouver while at the same time being so close to downtown- at just 15 minutes drive. For our first time at this well deserved 5 star B&B we wanted to stay in a relaxing place to spend our 25th wedding anniversary together with another family couple - my wife's brother and his wife who came from Toronto to join us. This B&B certainly met our expectations, if not above, from the first minute we arrived. We were welcomed by the extremely friendly owners , Crystal and John. The room was great and gave us a truly homely feeling with tastefully decorations and subtle colours making you feeling relaxed at ease all throughout our stay, including all the facilities you would expect. The bed was so comfortable. All the rooms were nicely presented but our room was the Vivaldi Room which was the largest and with best view. The communal/dinning room has a fantastic view of the downtown across the water with majestic view of the city in day and night. Crystal made sure that we were happy at all time. They offered us extra blankets to keep us warm at night as we are not used to the cool Vancouver nights. Her complimentary breakfast was very nicely served and offered to us at the time of our choosing; For example, on the last day she got up early to serve the breakfast at 7.00 so we could catch our early morning flight at the airport. There were so many other small gestures by Crystal and John that made us enjoy our stay; for example she lend us two large umbrellas throughout our 5 days stay to stay dry in the rainy Vancouver fall. In all we thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Crystal's View and I have no doubt that we will return there again. Thank you.
"Amazing stay with incredibly caring hosts"

My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary at Crystal's View B&B. The moment we entered to the moment we left we were taken care of in every way, dinner reservations were made for us at a fantastic restaurant, the room was beautifully set up with roses, rose petals and chocolates. Breakfast the next morning was fabulous, and the company was fantastic. I would recommend Crystal's View for a weekend get away from the city or for a longer stay, the environment is warm and welcoming, and without a doubt somewhere I would go back.
"THE place to stay in Vancouver!!"
10/05/14 Linda S Overland Park, Kansas, United States
This is one of my top B & B's. The innkeepers, Crystal and John are warm, friendly and very helpful. The location is an easy bus ride to local attractions and downtown. The view of downtown Vancouver is breath-taking! I highly recommend Crystal's View to anyone visiting Vancouver. Crystal provides an excellent breakfast and helpful instructions on where to go and what to see. We felt almost like family for the 4 days we were there-with great conversations both over breakfast and in the evenings. The whirlpool tub was much appreciated after a day of walking around the city.
"Stay here when in Vancouver"

I would very much doubt that you'll find a better B&B in Vancouver. Crystal and John our host made us feel so welcome the minute we arrived in this quiet B&B in a quiet street in North Van. Our room had a private balcony with amazing views over the city.The room was very well equipped and the bed very comfortable. The large bathroom was equipped with a jacuzzi bath and large walk in shower. The food was fantastic and Crystal would make your choice for breakfast. The best feature of this great B&B is without a doubt the hosts. Crystal and John, nothing was too much for them and they couldn't be more helpful, friendly and welcoming. They treated us like family and didn't complain when we and the other guest sat chatting for 2 hours after breakfast. One word sums this gem of a B&B Superb.

Crystal View is Awesome! The view from the B&B family room and from our suite was wonderful. Making visit even better was the warmth of the proprietress - Crystal. She is a wonderful hostess, great cook and a very caring person. She and her wonderful husband, John were a wonderful part of our stay. We loved visiting with them and their recommendations for dining and things to do were great! Highly recommend!
