This guest house is on a quiet, tree-lined street near Commercial Drive's restaurant strip (but without the noise and traffic). Our room (the Ivy Room) was beautifully appointed - large, comfortable bed, in-room refrigerator, and lots of nice amenities. It's not cheap, but it's very...More
Once again we stayed with Michael and Lynn at the Bee & Thistle in the Lions Nest suite on the top floor. I told my husband that I wanted to move in! Beautifully appointed apartment with spotless kitchen stocked with ample amenities for any meal....More
This is definitely one of the finest guesthouses I've stayed in. The owners have not only decorated this old house beautifully but have thought of virtually everything a guest might want - from fine bedding, a lavish loo, to thoughtful touches like fresh homemade cookies...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.
