About Charlotte Davis

We've lived around the world and have always enjoyed travelling and experiencing new places. When we discovered VRBO and began using it for our travels we decided that we'd convert our suite into a VRBO rental. We wanted to ensure we added a touch of home for our guests while they were staying with us. We've done the suite up to cater to all the travelers needs and make it a great experience.

Charlotte Davis purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Charlotte Davis chose Ambleside

We fell in love with West Vancouver and the village of Ambleside. Here we're so close to the city centre and have the mountains, park and ocean right at our doorstep. When we settled here we knew we'd found the perfect location and we were right.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location…this suite has it all and comes with 2 private patios. We have thought about all the things you'd need to make your stay enjoyable and relaxed. It's located in a quiet neighborhood and close to everything so there's no need to have a car. There are so many activities that are all within an easy walking distance including the prestigious Park Royal mall. You're also a 5min walk to the locate bus which can take you anywhere on the Northshore, into Vancouver or connect to Skytrain or the Canada Line. If you do decide on a car, we have parking available. We want you to experience the beauty of the Northshore and Vancouver while having all the comforts of home.

Lovely accommodations, great location and fabulous hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Charlotte and Ian are exceptional hosts and made our stay most enjoyable. Staying here is the closest thing to being at home while away. Vancouver is a beautiful city and this home takes full advantage of all it has to offer. Great location with easy access to shopping, sightseeing and outdoor activities. Hope to be able to stay here again when we next visit the city. Highly recommend this listing to anyone planning a visit.

Great Place to stay in West Vancouver !

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Charlotte and Ian's place and it was just as wonderful as the first time! The apartment is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We had a separate bedroom and the kids slept on the sofa bed in the living room. Everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable from every kitchen gadget you could want to umbrellas if it rains to a ball to kick around on the grass to dvd's if you just need to relax. Having a barbeque and outdoor dining space is a bonus. The owners were friendly and accommodating.

We hiked around the Cleveland Dam, did the Grouse Grind and saw everything up on Grouse Mountain and saw the views from Cypress Mountain. We visited all of the parks with amazing playgrounds from Ambleside Park to Dundarave and walked the Sea Walk many times. We also visited Granville Island and Stanley Park in Vancouver proper. Except for Cypress, we got everywhere walking or on transit (including from and to the airport) and it was quite easy.

We ate very well in Vancouver! We had a huge breakfast at Cindy's and lovely lunches at Swad Indian Kitchen and Feast in West Van. I highly recommend all three! We got takeout fish and chips at Tony's Fish and Oyster Café in Granville and ate it outside watching the boats. (The salmon was particularly good.) Our last minute surprise was takeout from Nishiki Sushi Restaurant right near the rental - the special rolls were amazing!

We had such a great time on this vacation - I would definitely recommend this rental and the area!

Private Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic getaway. My wife and I really enjoyed this private suite. Charlotte and Ian (whom we never met) have really put thought into their property. All the comforts of home including a washer and dryer! Perfect for us because traveling with a toddler requires everything plus the kitchen sink. We stayed for 4 evenings and even decided to relax one of the days and just veg inside. We watched a few movies (the Davis's had a great collection) and ordered pizza. Although the owners were home, we never saw or heard them. This area of Vancouver is gorgeous with tons of shops, restaurants, and sites to visit. The only request in the future would be sports channels (not a deal breaker but being a major sporting person would have added to my enjoyment) Skip the hotel and book this Private piece of paradise. Thank you again Charlotte and Ian for sharing your home with us!

Upscale experience!

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly a luxurious place---making it a welcome destination at the end of a busy site-seeing day. The kitchen was set up with everything we needed to make a picnic on the go or cook-in if desired. The bed was super comfortable too!
