We loved staying with Genine and Keith. We took our two girls to West Vancouver Community Center's summer camps for a month and we had an entire suite that was beautifully decorated, as well as, a lovely patio for our stay.
Genine greeted us outside the property with a warm smile. She made sure that we were clear about any instructions to do with the suite. Genine and Keith made really helpful recommendations about where to eat and what to do by providing maps and guidebooks about the area. Genine even sent us coupons of Vancouver Aquarium by mail half-way through our stay - very thoughtful.
The location is excellent. It's close to everything; restaurants, shops, convenient stores, beach, parks and etc. This was a fantastic experience to us. We highly recommend Genine and Keith's suite for your future stay at West Vancouver!

This is a wonderful place to stay. My teenage daughter and I had the good fortune to live here while I worked for an extended period in Vancouver. It provided a lovely home away from home, tucked under the mountains, in a well appointed, cosy, and remarkably efficient suite. I didn't have to bring so much as a spoon. Insuite laundry, jetted tub, fireplace, radiant floors, all these small luxuries make being away from home so much more comforting.
Genine and Keith are wonderful landlords, kind, relaxed, generous, and answered every need we had before we asked them. The house itself is well situated: walk 25 feet from the door and you're staring at the ocean, you're two blocks from coffee and the seawall. An hour and 20 to Whistler!
I could have easily done without the car, everything you need is at your doorstep, four blocks from the mall and Whole Foods, a quick drive to the ski hills, and in a neighbourhood that is amiable, convenient and safe. West Van itself has more of a village feel. The bus line is better than most in the Greater Vancouver area, 20 minutes to downtown. I grew up in Vancouver so I know what I'm talking about.
We are lucky to have had such a cheery little nest to make our own over the Christmas holidays. Being away from home is always a bit daunting, but Genine and Keith provide a warm and comforting abode in a small village of a bigger city. Its kind of ideal in that sense.

Our home away from home!
We have stayed in this suite twice, as I have family in West Vancouver who are not able to accommodate us when we visit. We have stayed in several other apartments on the North Shore, but this one is the best by far.
The neighbourhood (Ambleside) is very quiet but you are still close to all of the amenities that you need. The apartment is very well equipped (kitchen things, linen, etc.) and there were many thoughtful touches (they know that we have a young child and made every effort to accommodate us). The space is immaculately clean and was only very recently renovated. All appliances are brand new and there is very reliable wi-fi. Parking is literally just outside the door. We did not make much use of the outdoor dining area this time, but we did last summer. Beds are large and comfortable. The bathroom is very nice and also well appointed.
We would certainly stay here again if possible - the neighbourhood is very quiet and very convenient for us. Though it was not a priority for us, you can get downtown quite easily by car (you are just a few minutes from the Lions Gate Bridge) or by bus. You are also just a few minutes from the highway which leads to Horseshoe Bay and on to Whistler.
Thanks to Genine and Keith for another wonderful and worry-free stay!

This was by far the nicest rental in the most desireable location I have yet had the pleasure to enjoy. Thanks so much for all the extra little things that made our stay so special. We will be back soon.

We hope your lovely suite is being rented out. If I know of anyone looking for a rental I will definately pass them your name. Thanks again and take care.

We will certainly stay with you again if we are in town when you have a vacancy. It was a perfect location for us, and we never felt that we needed anything more than what was in the suite. And thank you again...

We were renovating our new home and needed a rental apartment for almost four months. Dickenson House fulfilled our needs and was very comfortable, plus the landlords were great...!
