The Bee and Thistle is a real find and like visiting the home of old friends. Lynn and Michael are so warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay in Vancouver absolutely perfect. Their lovely home is stylish and comfortable and we...More
Beautifully fitted old house with perfect balance between preservation of the heritage style and every modern comfort. The best bed. The artistically presented breakfast tasted as delicious as it looked. Thank you Lynn and Michael. Five star hotels have nothing on this place. Charming.
We regularly stay near Commercial Drive, to visit our kids, and this is by far the best place to stay - beautiful remodel of old heritage home, spotless, comfortable rooms and beds, welcoming hosts, huge (maybe too huge) breakfasts, central location but far enough Drive...More

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 well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
