About Mark & Geraldine

Mark and Geraldine are both Vancouver born and raised, but well traveled. We live in the property and take pride in it. We are proud to show off our city and look forward to helping you enjoy it!

Mark & Geraldine purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark & Geraldine chose East Side

We bought this house together after we got married. The previous owners did a fantastic job of renovating this character home and it was obvious how much love they had put into it. It's a great neighbourhood not only for it's location but for the diversity of the people, who are friendly and welcoming.

Lovely home, great location, brilliant hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect - clean, renovated, modern (and oh my goodness - that bathtub was five star hotel worthy!). The bed was super comfortable, and the kitchen well thought through if you want to cook at home. We loved the location - while not in the city centre, it is very well positioned to get around easily and quickly, and with a quick walk from the bustle of Commercial Drive, the house is in a leafy, lovely, quiet suburban area - every day was like coming back to an oasis. We found being out of the city centre to be a bonus - and with the skytrain only 10 minutes walk away it was easy to get anywhere we needed to go.

Commercial Drive was brilliant for restaurants - breakfast and dinner. There were so many options available, that it took us a couple of days to go past 1st Avenue - which we highly recommend you do because the restaurants past there are plentiful and all great!

The hosts were brilliant. Don’t be put off by the fact that they live above. Mark greeted us on arrival and gave us a run down of the place, was very clear that if we needed anything from him that we should just ask, then let us be - we hardly knew they were there.

Overall we had a brilliant experience, and would absolutely stay again - one of the best we’ve used.

Repeat Performance

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this well-located lower suite in East Van for the second time. A great spot for us, clean and comfortable on a quiet street just off Nanaimo. Mark and Geraldine have provided the basics and you can walk to the Drive or East Village and find some of the best that Vancouver has to offer. We'll be back.

Very Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

Mark's and Geraldine's suite was the perfect place to call "home" for our four day visit to Vancouver. It is very nicely appointed and all of their recommendations were spot on. We had destinations we wanted to hit located all over the city and found the location to be very convenient. We hope to return in the near future!
