Beautiful, Abundantly Appointed Laneway Coach Home
We stayed at Alan and Ivonne's Laneway Coach Home inVancouver - The Makena - for the better part of a week while we acclimated our 18 year old to Vancouver and got her settled at UBC. We couldn't have had a more serene, beautiful place to call "home" during this exciting, but emotional transition. The house was extremely clean and comfortable, with every creature comfort one could wish. There were plenty of cooking supplies, cutlery, plates, glasses, along with cooking basics, coffee maker (and coffee!), etc. The common living space had a beautiful flat screen tv with cable, wonderful assortment of board games, etc. The beds upstairs were extremely comfortable and supplied with plenty of pillows, and the rooms were airy and fresh. One of the most notable and very thoughtful efforts of our hosts was the presence of fans...it was quite hot in Vancouver when we were there, and we arrived to a house filled with fans - one in the living room, one in each bedroom and one in the hall. We were able to use these to effectively cool the house, making our stay that much more comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and there are shops and restaurants a few blocks away. It was hard to pack up when it was time to leave! We would recommend The Makena whole-heartedly, and look forward to returning ourselves!
