The Bee and Thistle was a perfect place to stay, just a couple of blocks from a bus line, walking distance to the Sky Train (an easy ride to downtown), and right near numerous restaurants, cafes and stores. Lynn and Michael were gracious, helpful hosts....More

Lynn and Michael are thoughtful hosts who helped us make the most of our short visit. The home is lovely with a comfortable bed and luxury bath amenities. I wish we had more time to enjoy the neighborhood.

Bee & Thistle is not only a wonderfully located guest house, but it is also well managed and maintained. Bus service to the down town area is only a block and a half from the front door. The owners, world travellers themselves, have excellent insight...More

About
Description
A guest house located in a 1908 heritage house situated next to "the Drive", which is 10 minutes by car from downtown Vancouver, Canada. Cozy rooms are a blend of historic and contemporary, with touches of More luxury. Some have views of mountains and harbor. All rooms have queen or king beds, fridges, luxury linens, fireplaces, t.v., ensuite bathrooms, complimentary snacks & drinks. The Lions' Loft and Joey's Retreat are both suites with king (Joey) or queen (Loft) beds, full kitchens, lovely bathrooms, gas fireplaces and flat screen t.v.s. We are 1 1/2 blocks from Commercial Drive, which is a very popular and casual neighborhood with more than 60 moderately priced restaurants, coffee shops and pubs within easy walking distance. All Vancouver points of interest are easily accessible via public transit. The #20 bus stops 1 1/2 blocks from our house and the Commercial Drive/Broadway skytrain station is an easy 15 minute walk along vibrant Commercial Drive (or 5 min. bus ride). Less

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
