Had a great and comfortable stay. Will recommend this property to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the perfect place to stay. I was at a conference on UBC campus, and Alma Beach Suites was only a 15 minute bus ride away. Ambleside Studio was clean and modern, the perfect size for 1 person (or 2 people who really really like each other). I definitely recommend Alma Beach Suites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
家族４人で、６泊滞在しました。キッチンは清潔で一通りの道具は揃っていました。今回は朝食ぐらいしか部屋で食べませんでしたが、長期滞在で材料を買ってくれば自炊できます。近く（歩いて１０分くらい）にスーパーもあるので食材の調達もできます。調味料も少しありますが、和食調味料はありません。みりん・酒・醤油など。洗濯は一回に洗濯機と乾燥機が一台づつコイン式のがあります。２５セントが４枚づつ必要で、洗剤はないので持参が必要。玄関前から部屋まで階段しか無いので重いスーツケースを運ぶのは大変でした。シーツやタオルの交換は７日ごとのようです。すべてのもの（食器やタオル）のカウントはされているようです。全体的によかったです。もしまた長期滞在する機会があれば訪れたいです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This heritage house has an amazing ambience"

The location in the trendy 4th ave is ideal. It's close to the beach and the university. The suites have been tastefully decorated and upgraded. First class all the way? The checkin process is wonderful and the attention to detail was lovely. They even left a starter basket of goodies to enjoy you first morning breakfast

The English Bay suite is a lovely one-bedroom apartment with a recently renovated kitchen and bathroom, in a quiet building on a quiet street. The bed is super comfortable - we slept so well! Reservation is easily done online and the hosts give you the code to get in the building and into your apartment so you can arrive at your leisure, without needing to get in touch with anyone. However, contact information is provided and Yhen and Manfred were both very helpful when assistance was needed. A book with helpful information on the area is provided in the unit. The property is kept in impeccable shape. We even saw the gardener stop by to do some trimming. The welcome basket with a few starter items was a lovely touch.

Alma Beach Manor is an excellent place to stay while in Vancouver. Located in an ideal location in Kitsilano, it is easy to get to downtown, the different beaches on English Bay, the main streets of Kitsilano, UBC, and Granville Island. It is also easy to get to from the airport. Walk a few hundred yards and you are at a park on the water with an amazing view! There are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We have stayed here multiple times and have never been disappointed. It is a well run, efficient, self-catered hotel with a variety of apartments to choose from. The apartments are beautiful and fully furnished with upgraded appliances. Why stay in a hotel when you can have all the comforts of home? You won't be sorry staying here. We will always stay here when in Vancouver.

We stayed in the English Bay suite; intimate one bedroom. So lovely and clean. Handy bus stop across the street. There was a welcome basket in the fridge and the kitchen was spotless and bright. Lovely bathroom. We will certainly stay there again. Great hosts to greet us!
"Nice clean apartment - ideally located for where I wanted to be."
This is a good sized studio apartment. Well maintained and furnished. Nice area, close to the beach. Good access to downtown and Granville island. Booking was easy and there's lots of information about restaurants, bars etc in the area, provided.
"Better than a hotel or a B and B"

I stayed in the Ambleside studio apartment during a recent visit to Vancouver to visit my daughter and can't imagine I will be staying anywhere else in future. Lovely big windows facing a quiet residential street, comfortable bed, a couple of comfortable chairs ( couldn't get the floor lamp to work) and a full kitchen you could cook a meal in. Great location.... Buses within a block to get you anywhere you need to go. There is a Whole Foods and a Safeway not far away. Take out Thai from a place right around the corner was great, also had a great meal at Oakwood Canadian Bistro. Best of all you can walk through a park to the waters edge just a couple of blocks away to sit on a bench and look out over the water. Also about a 15 minute walk through a lovely neighbourhood to Kits Pool, a large outdoor heated saltwater pool. A day pass allows you to return and swim again later in the day. Just stamp your hand on the way out. This wouldn't suit someone who requires daily maid service or someone to check you in ( you access your unit with a code on a keypad) or minds sorting and depositing your own garbage in the bins at the back of the property. To my mind this added to the feeling that I was in my own apartment with the privacy to come and go, get up when I pleased and prepare my own meals. I had phone numbers and emails to call if I had a problem, but otherwise only saw a few other residents. Like a luxury B and B without having to make small talk with hosts and other guests at an over-sized breakfast. I will be back!

I initially booked a three bedroom suite but then told it was not available. Manfred offered me a two bedroom suite plus a studio for the same price. I was then offered the Kitsilano penthouse on the top floor as well as the studio, again for the original price of the three bedroom suite so a bargain! The penthouse was excellent. Very spacious which allowed us to spread out and relax. It was great to be able to cook for ourselves instead of eating out every night. The penthouse and studio were very clean and well equipped. Good location in Kitsilano. Well worth staying in and a welcome change from hotel rooms.
"Great location for Vancouver vacation"
08/18/14 Candureactor Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
My family of four travelled to Vancouver this July. We stayed six days at Alma Beach Manor in the Bayswater 2 bdrm. There was ample space for us to spread out and relax after a day of sightseeing and it was great to be able to cook and have dinner on the back deck. The beds were comfortable and the quiet neighbourhood is full of beautifully landscaped lots. It is a quick 5 minute walk down to the waterfront, very close to Kitsilano beach. Shopping on 4th Avenue was easily accessible and groceries were a short walk in either direction. Our host, Manfred, made us feel very welcome and gave us some great tips on exploring the beach and other areas. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and a perfect home base for our vacation. Very close to a quick bus ride downtown so we didn't need a car during our stay. Overall, a great experience!
"Stunning self catering accommodation!"
08/10/14 Johanna G
We stayed here in August 2014. My daughter lives in Vancouver nearby and we were a large family group visiting for 9 nights. Manfred and Carol the owners were very friendly and inviting. The apartments were amazing! The penthouse suite was truly stunning as we're the other Apartments we saw. Spotlessly clean, really comfortable, real interior design look to them. Kitchen and bathroom facilities excellent. Very central location at Kitsilano Beach district. I could not find a single fault! Highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Vancouver! Much more comfortable and relaxing than a hotel. Walsh Family from Dublin, Ireland.
"live like a local"

Great way of staying in Vancouver living like a local. Perfect location between the Kitsilano beaches and the shops on 4th Avenue. Public transport passing right in front of the house. Nice building with a very nice penthouse - nicely decorated and very well equiped.
