About Caleigh Garland

I moved to Vancouver from Toronto in 2000. I have lived in this beautiful home since 2008. My partner lives 2 blocks away and we have 3 girls between us who are all out of the house, which is why I have embarked on this adventure of running a Bed and Breakfast here in Vancouver. I love to travel myself, and have played recreational women's soccer for the last 10 years - am on an injury hiatus right now though, but looking forward to the women's world cup in Vancouver this summer.

Caleigh Garland purchased this house in 2008

Why Caleigh Garland chose West Side

In a hidden gem of a neighbourhood in West Point Grey. You are less than 5 minute walk to the beach and there are public tennis courts close by. You can walk out the back door less than 3 minutes to beautiful nature trails in Jericho Park. It is also close to trails in Pacific Spirit national Park, where you can be immersed in the beautiful rain forest right here in the city. This location is a great place to experience the beautiful natural environment still accessible to the benefits of an urban centre.

What makes this house unique

I have beach chairs, beach towels and a portable BBQ for dinners at the beach. There is a small theatre walking distance away, the Jericho Arts Centre, as well as the Jericho sailing club, where you can rent kayaks, and paddle boards or take windsurfing lessons.

Jericho Park is 5 minutes away from the Jericho Folk Festival, a land mark event in the summer at the beach. You are still close to many great restaurants, UBC, the Museam of Anthropology, and the Chan Centre.

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most comfortable VRBO rental we have ever stayed in. The unit met all our expectations. It is clean, spacious, and the decor and appliances are very nice. We loved the garden and the quiet neighborhood . It is a really great location with parks and beaches in 5-10 minute walking distance. We highly recommend!

Perfect for a couples trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time visiting Vancouver. It was our first time without kids in 13 years. The location was a short walk to the bus stop and had all the amenities and more that were helpful for our stay. The place was clean and well accessorized including a washer and dryer!

Chickadees Near the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here very much. The apartment is designed to use space effectively and is tastefully decorated using locally sourced materials, including First Nations themes. All equipment we required was there, plus some.

The garden is a great source of entertainment with chickadees, one or more squirrels and bees attracted by the flowers/food. A good encouragement to recycle where possible too.

The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from the long sandy beach at Jericho beach, with fine views towards Vancouver and a restaurant over a sailing club. There are two easy bus routes into town within walking distance and also shops and restaurants within easy reach.

A good bet!
