Ocean Breeze Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #15 of 20 North Vancouver B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 July 2017

Well appointed beds and baths that remain quiet even when full. Your host, Margaret, is delightful and makes the stay memorable. Parking on the street is safe and private. 10 minute walk to the quay and Lonsdale has some magnificent places to eat. But don't eat too much since the B&B breakfasts are to write home about! And if you are a dog lover and miss your pooches, Jackson and Toffee will let you say hello. Beautiful views from the front rooms facing all Vancouver's skyline and there is a nice sheltered patio out front to sit and rest.

Room Tip: Front rooms face Vancouver and have a nice balcony to sit on for morning coffee

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid June. We arrived later than expected due to delays and Margaret could not have been more helpful.
The room, advertised as deluxe, was beautifully comfortable and spacious and interestingly appointed. Mirrors feature quite highly which made it light and fun, especially considering the beautiful full length windows/patio doors but I'm still a little unsure about the fridge, tea and coffee being in the en suite! However the huge bed was amongst the most comfortable ever and to have a balcony (shared) to enjoy the gorgeous view of the harbour was an added bonus. The view at night especially was mesmerising, there's a little industrial noise audible but it really doesn't disturb and the residential street is very quiet.
Breakfast was delicious and, in true guest house style, is home cooked and enjoyed with the company of Margaret (and her 2 lovely dogs and many stories) and other guests. A little more flexible hours for breakfast would have been nice but as she does it all herself it's not unreasonable to want it sorted in good time to get the rooms cleaned and changed later.
Location is very good, it's 20 minutes walk to the seabus across to Vancouver Waterfront and all it's attractions. This means that affordable accommodation with fantastic views is close to where you want to be. Views like these on the waterfront itself would be much more expensive. You're also brilliantly placed for Grouse mountain etc. All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Margaret knows what having a first class B&B is all about. The property is as exquisite as Margaret herself is friendly and helpful. An excellent breakfast, great location and free on site parking are all part of the winning combination. Don't hesitate for a moment to stay here.

This place is stunning! Margaret, the owner is a delight...the personification of hospitality. The breakfasts are delicious. I would definitely stay here again. Just a short walk to the SeaBus that takes you to downtown Vancouver. You can go by taxi for a few dollars. Highly recommended.

Although this place is only perhaps 1-2 kilometers from the main downtown harbourfront area, there is no big flashing neon light outside and you could drive right past it without realizing it is there.

I trade stocks for a living and for me it was very important that the property I stay at have CNBC (cable channel 143 on Shaw). In fact, I went to about six other places in all price ranges only to find that none of them had CNBC available. I was ready to give up on finding a place that had CNBC when I was referred to Ocean Breeze by a fancy hotel that was sold out.

Needless to say I was very pleased with the place once I saw it. The owner, Margaret, was a very pleasant lady and easy to talk with. Her breakfasts that she made were delicious. She had two friendly dogs that were both very well behaved. Although my room didn't have a view of the downtown harbourfront area, there was at least one other room (maybe more) that had wonderful views.

Margaret has a place that is wonderfully decorated with antiques and miscellaneous items that made me feel very comfortable during my 3-day stay. Also, the bed was very, very comfortable. I'm a world traveler and have also been to all 50 states in the United States. Very seldom have I found a bed on par with the one at Ocean Breeze.

In summary, this was a great place that I would highly recommend to others staying in the Vancouver area.
