We pride ourselves on ensuring the suite is up to date in decor and amenities.
We know what is is like to be a guest in someone else's home. We always appreciated the little things that made our stay more convenient and comfortable, and we want to do the same for our guests. The suite is approx 750 square feet. It can accommodate 4 people comfortably (queen bed/couch/queen air bed/full double sofa bed/playpen). High quality linens are provided and all bedding is protected with mattress and pillow protectors. Bedroom mattress has a gel foam topper for a great nights sleep! We just installed a new 2 in 1 rainshower/handheld showerhead. There is a private patio space outside the front door for use. Parking is included in the driveway for up to 2 vehicles tandum.
MAX 4 people in the suite
We are new to the been renting our suite on a short term basis for several
years now, and previously had long-term rentals. We have used short-term rentals whenever we travel. We love the convenience of the home away from home.
What others are saying about us " Both me and my spouse are very much pleased about our last summer experience. We had the opportunity to stay for three month at the “mother in law suite" at Tina and James. From the first day Tina and James were very polite and courteous. They are a very nice family with a wonderful house and we really enjoyed that they accepted to share their home with us. They are profoundly fair and take pride in their property. Anyone would be lucky to live with them. Unfortunately, our stay in Abbotsford was cut short due to our work schedule and we had to say “good bye" . Iuliana Guest AccessGuests have their own private entrance to come and go as you please. You have access to the entire 1 bedroom suite and its amenities. The suite as a full kitchen and bathroom (shower). It also has its own washer dryer. There is a full/double sized sofa end and a queen sized serta self inflating air bed available as second bed options.
There is a private covered patio with 2 chairs and a table as well as a BBQ. We have a trampoline in the back and a variety of kids toys (slides etc) as well as a second deck with table and chairs. We also have a playpen/bassinet/highchair available upon request . The suite contains a cooler and picnic backpack for those day trip picnics. Additional items you need are just a request a way in most cases ie. Portable chairs. Interaction with GuestsWe are friendly and warm hosts who are willing to interact as little or as much as our guests would like. Your self contained suite is private from our main residence but we are happy to answer questions or interact if you like. We are happy to provide suggestions and directions or let you "borrow a cup of sugar". We have been hosting short-term for over a year and have had long-term rentals for 5 years and have always used short-term rentals when we have traveled - and loved the convenience, personal attention and touch! The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is very safe and the evenings are filled with the sounds of frogs and mornings with the sounds of birds. We are in a cultasac overlooking a farm. You can see the USA from our backyard. A short train comes by twice a day max, almost always one at 3pm and rarely late at night - the kids love it!. There is a park within walking distance. Our neighborhood is ideal for walks, rollerblading and bike riding due to the flat valley roads, with awesome views of the mountains. Many ski/snowboard mountains are close by, Baker/Hemlock/Manning Park/Grouse/Cypress/Seymour or of course the world famous Whistler/Blackcomb. We also have many wineries within a short drive from us. Including my favorite Domaine du Chaberton - Langley. Bacchus is our favorite!. Getting AroundWe are a 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop. We are not in close walking distance of that much therefore a vehicle is ideal. We are however seconds away from the USA border (WA State- Sumas) or just a couple minute walk, 5 minutes drive from highway 1, 15 minutes drive away from the Abbotsford Airport (YXX), 7 minutes away from the University (UFV) and the Abbotsford Entertainment Complex, 12 minutes from Abbotsford Hospital/Cancer Centre, 5 minutes from many stores including Costco, Walmart, Target, 10 minutes from the new Highstreet shopping complex including a Cineplex Theatre with VIP seating, Marshalls, Bouclair, Sephora, H&M. Old Navy etc. Only 45-60 min from Harrison Hot Springs and Vancouver. 2 hours to Seattle, Merritt and 2.5 hours to Whistler. Other Things to Note**we welcome home swaps with other hosts, if you are interested in swapping your entire home/suite for ours.
Bookings of a month or more in duration can be negotiated especially during the months of Oct-March
Note: we are located on the east side of town, walking distance to Sumas USA but the nearest store in Canada is about 5 min drive north on Sumas Way/highway 11. It is not very accessible if you do not have a car. We are a few blocks from a bus stop. A train does come past our house approx 2 times a day - generally they are short trains and come between the hours of 10am-10pm. Trains last only a couple of minutes generally. The kids love it when they come by.
