Originally created by the nuns of Notre Dame at the end of the 17th Century, the island is very easy to fall in love for it's village-inspired feel and natural surroundings. Enjoy easy access to quality shops, cafes, and restaurants on Nuns Island, or enjoy a walk around the many beautiful parks and lakes.

Stay for work

This is a fantastic suite for short or long term stays. The layout of the unit offers it to be very spacious relative to the sq. footage. It's incredibly clean, quick to jump on the highway, EXTREMELY dog friendly with Bridgman park across the street. I moved up to Vancouver for work and rented this unit as a short term solution while finding long term housing. Couldn't have picked a better place and host to work with than this unit and the group at Vancouver Short Stay!”
