Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay with Larry. Very hospitable and lovely breakfasts! The location of the B&B is excellent - very close to Kits beach (with some cafes and restaurants), and a good bus link to downtown.

- Lynne Hill, from Birmingham, UK 17 August 2018

Hi, Jennifer and Larry, we would like to saythank you so much for having us. We really enjoyed our stay with you. It really was like a home away from home and we are very sad to leave. Thanks again and it was very nice to meet you both. Don't forget to pass on the bear spray! Lee and Maria

- Maryelle, from Lyon France 24 August 2017

We so enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. We appreciated the local ferry tickets as it was a welcome alternative to regular transit. From the Marine Meusum we carried on to the Science Center stop and were able to walk easily to China town. My husband was very interested in Larry's musical interests. Hoping to see you again. Marg McKay

I spent 5 nights at the Kitsilano Point Beach B&B and thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfasts were great and the company absolutely delightful.

- Orville, from Winnipeg Canada 25 June 2016

Dear Larry and Jennifer, We stayed with you by the end of June last year with our little girl Hilda. We enjoyed out stay with you so much. The delicious breakfasts which Jennifer made, the pleasant and entertaining discussions at the breakfast table and the lovely garden - all were great. The house is an old very charming house perfectly located in Kitsilano, a five minute walk from the beach. We definitely want to come back again, even if we live in Sweden which makes quite the distance.

You were great hosts and would definitely recommend anyone to stay with you.

All the best, Sofia, Henrik and Hilda (Hilda oh Hilda)

- Henrik Eriksson, from Sweden 21 February 2016

Thank you so much for your friendship; we will not forget you, and we will miss the delicious breakfasts Jennifer prepared every morning. With kindest regards Svetlana, Leonardo and Daniel

- Svetlana Barneva, from Montreal 2 July 2015

A lovely place, with welcoming hosts! We stayed at this home for two nights, and we were very pleased. It felt the way a B&B should feel: like a comfortable and welcoming visit with friends. We'd certainly go back.

With apologies for the misspelling of Jennifer's name, but gratitude for the hospitality, here's the limerick I promised: There once were a couple named Barr With guests from near and from far. Their beds were divine, their breakfasts were fine. So thanks, Larry and Jennifar.

- Bill and Barb, from Gabriola Island 10 June 2015

We had a very nice stay with Jennifer and Larry in February 2015. We wanted a quiet place not too far from downtown with access to public transport, space for a car, good breakfast, and hosts who like to talk with their guests. We got all we were looking for and even more. We enjoyed our long conversations in the morning very much and are still thankful for your advices and your immediate support, when we needed a garage. The surroundings are lovely with the beach nearby and the stunning view at the city.

- Sylvia, Rebecca and Matthias, from Germany 6 June 2015

We were here in July 2014. Very well situated B&B. Lovely owners, full of good advices and stories.

- Philippe Eeckman, from Belgium 2 December 2014

We had a most pleasant stay with Jennifer and Larry. They were very gracious, introducing ourselves to family and friends who were visiting at various points in our four day stay. The highlight was certainly breakfast each morning. The discussion around the table was always lively and wide ranging. The location is excellent for all who enjoy walking, cycling, or using public transit. UBC, Granville island, downtown Vancouver are all close. And watching the sunset from Kitsilano beach (one block away) is a fine way to round out a day of touring.

- Anna and Roger, from Westmount, Quebec 17 October 2014

Magnifique emplacement pour visiter Vancouver! A proximité de la plage et pas loin des bus pour le centre. Jennifer et Larry se coupent en quatre pour vous indiquer les meilleures adresses de Vancouver. Ils en connaissent une série... Très bon souvenir, Dominique et Alex de Bruxelles - juillet 2014

- PALANTE, from Brussels 18 August 2014

One week on business. Nice quiet B&B. Jennifer and Larry were great. Good Food. Close to everything. Awesome sushi spot (Hibune Sushi) just off the beach across from Swimming pool.

- Max and Crystal, from saskatoon 25 July 2014

The rooms at Larry and Jennifer's were exactly what we needed

- Nadine, from Belgium 18 July 2014

What a wonderful and restful time we had at your B&B! We were refreshed following our week with you and enjoyed your friendly and hospitable nature. Thanks for putting up with our quirks pertaining to small breakfasts which met my diet needs and our preferences. The location of your B&B was well-suited to our needs for strolls along the waterfront and access to the False Creek ferries which meant we could easily get to Granville Island for shopping. All in all, we are still rested from our great visit with you and wish you all the best in the coming years.

- Duncan Blackman, from Moose Jaw, SK 3 July 2014

We loved to be in that nice house.

- Juergen and Petra, from Germany 4 January 2014

Nous sommes très satisfaits du choix de ce B&B pour notre arrivée dans l’Ouest Canadien. Deux bonnes nuits reposantes pour se mettre au rythme des vacances.

Great location, comfortable facilities, gracious, friendly and ever-helpful hosts (thank you Jennifer and Larry!). My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in July 2012 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. J&L really made us feel welcome and made sure we had plenty to eat for breakfast! Thoroughly recommended.

- Les & Teresa, from Adelaide, South Australia 3 January 2013

I enjoyed staying in Canada. In Vancouver we spent agreat time through riding and walking round the beach.One of the nicest parts was staying with the Barrs.I liked the pancakes and Haruko liked Mrs Jennifer's stitch and Mr Larry's talk about Japan. They were patient with us and I appreciate that very much.Anna

- Anonymous, from Japan 13 July 2012

this was the best B&B we stayed at during our B.C. holiday

- Veronique, from France 14 June 2012

Well, the location of your B&B is marvelous and in easy reach of the city (downtown) by bus, quite near the beach in Vanier Park and in walking distance of Granville Island. We liked your hospitality and the good breakfast. Thank you!

We miss Canada and your pleasant company. Thank you very much for your awailability. I rally hope to keep in touch with you both. Fulvio says hello.

- Maurizio, from Italy 31 July 2011

Dear Jennifer and Larry,thank you so much for this nice place to stay, and for the very tasty pancakes, coffee and tea that helped us for a good start in the new day. We're happy to know you and thank you for the time you spent with us at the breakfast. We enjoyed it very much. Greetings Yvonne and Steffie.

- Steffie and Yvonne Kammermann, from Switzerland 17 July 2011

Although I stayed at Jennifer and Larry's two years ago I remember it so well that when I came upon my old receipt and realized that I hadn't written a review, as I had promised, I had to act. I loved the location. It was perfect for strolls and runs along the beach and coast yet close enough to the shops and restaurants in Kits. I was completely spoiled for breakfast. Anything that my stomach desired was there the following morning. The house was charming and my room very comfortable. Although there wasn't a bath, Jennifer was kind enough to lend me her's. I don't know if it anything to do with the fact that I was born on the exact same day and year as Jennifer's daughter but I couldn't have had two better hosts. With heartfelt and belated thanks.

- Susan, from New York, NY, USA (formerly Brussels) 13 June 2011

We had a pleasant walk in the park from the Maritime Museum until Arbutus Street and all around the residential area. We appreciated at the most our cosy bedroom in your house and the charming fire we enjoyed during three evenings, the various breakfasts,your presences, your will to speak French every time and the gentleness you assisted us when we left. J.C

- Anonymous, from Leon France 16 January 2011

Charmant B&B en plein quartier résidentiel, magnifiquement situé, à quelques pas de la plage de Kitsilano et d'autres activités. Nous avons été choyés par nos hôtes, Jennifer et Larry, durant notre séjour. De plus Jennifer n'hésite pas à parler français. Il est clair que nous y retournerons lors de notre prochain voyage à Vancouver.

- Josette et Philippe, from Montréal, Canada 17 October 2010

I booked this B&B for the first days of my holiday and was really happy with this decision. The location is great, in walking distance to several nice places and even to downtown Vancouver. The hosts, Jennifer and Larry, are very kind and hospitable. I got plenty of advices what to do and where to go, usually after the delicious breakfast. So I liked it so much that I returned at the end before leaving Canada again.

Thank You very much, Jennifer and Larry, and all the best for You.

- Uwe Mueller, from Germany 12 October 2010

I felt as if I had walked into the house of my great aunt, my favourite place in Scotland. Jennifer and Larry made me feel at home right away. My room was very comfortable and I enjoyed having breakfast with Jennifer and Larry. No wonder that people come back to stay. I shall certainly return to this B&B if I am in Vancouver.

- Moiya Wright, from Ottawa 21 September 2010

We are 3 persons, who spend 4 nights at your B&B. When we go to Vancover again, we will book at your place again. It is a warmly house with a wonderfull couple taking care of you. The location is great, it is just in the middle of everything - and it so quiet place, so we really did have a good sleep in the very good beds. Clean and nice. Good luck to Jennifer and Jinks

- Inge Marie Nielsen, from Denmark 12 September 2010

- Viviane Pananis, from Quebec 11 March 2010

Our family of 4 stayed with Jennifer and Larry for three weeks over the 2010 Olympic Games. Their home is beautifully located within walking distance of many attractions including Granville Island. We enjoyed our breakfast morning chats and our comfortable rooms throughout our stay. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

- The Inglis Family, from London, Ontario 9 March 2010

We had excellent breakfastsand we spent a good stay in your sweet home. Merci pour chaleureux accueil.

- Philippe and Marielle, from Auxerre France 18 October 2009

Kitsolano at the point is in a beautiful oceanside neighbourhood.The Beach / park is approximatley a 5 minute stroll . Great shopping areas and restaurants are closeby. My hosts Jen and Larry were very accomadating with flexable breakfast times and the atmoshere is quiet and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable.

- Lynda Rolfe, from british columbia 12 September 2009

- Jacques Mourot, from Paris France 31 August 2009

If you like a sort of homecoming then you're at the right place at Jennifer & Larry Bar. It's a late review but nevertheless a very positieve one! We were there in September 2008. The sphere and breakfast were delicious next to the tips Larry gave us for visiting hot spots in Vancouver! Reasons enough to come back!

Warm Regards, Bob van der Vliet, Guda van den Broek and Andre Daudeij from the Netherlands. For feedback: orca45@casema.nl

- Bob van der Vliet, from Netherlands. 21 April 2009

Do you like to sip your daily starter out of bone de chine mugs? Do you like to have a short walk to Kitsilano Beach (and short means no 3 minutes)? Do you like British humour and a good chat with a couple who lives for more than 50 years in Vancouver? Then you are absolutely right at this place!

- Detlev Grosskreuz, from Germany 6 November 2008

What a great way to get to know Vancouver.Larry and Jennifer are welcoming not only to their home they are also more than happy to share tips on the best way to explore the city.Each tme I visit Vancouver I can count a comfortable stay at Kitsilano Point Beach B&B.

- L.Crosbie, from Cochrane,Ab 1 October 2008

Jennifer and Larry are a spectacular couple who run a warm,engaging,special home away from home for many people.And I feelso blessed to have spent a week here,very much at home as I attended my conference.I definitely plan to return should I ever be "in the area" and in the mean time I am truly grateful for your company and hospitality.

- Chandra Ashton, from Edmonton Canada 21 September 2008

Over the years I've stayed at 5 different B&B's in Vancouver and 14 times at Kitsilano Point Beach B&B which is by far the best. Jennifer & Larry Barr are perfect hosts and will make your vacation a memorable one. Awaken to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and enjoy a delicious full breakfast before exploring this world class city. Location,location,location. The beach,Maritime Museum,planetarium,history museum,Shakespeare on the Bard and scores of restaurants and cafe's are all a short walk away. Hop on the bathtub sized False Creek ferry for a 10 minute putt-putt cruise to Granville Island for free outdoor enter- tainment, serious shopping and much, much, more. At the end of the day just relax and enjoy fantastic sunset's just 5 minute's out your door. Over the year's I've seen many changes in Vancouver but the warmth and hospitality at Kitsilano Point Beach B&B has remained the same... Perfect.

- Gary Dederichs, from Denver, Colorado U.S.A. 16 September 2008

It is great to stay with Jennifer and Larry. They are such good hosts with so many interests - breakfast time can be lively, fun and stimulating. As for location, you couldn't have a better place: near the beach, great walks in Vanier Park, not too far from the airport and ferries and of course, all the places to visit in the fantastic city of Vancouver. Thanks Jennifer and Larry a great time.

- Angela Morris, from Colchester, England 14 September 2008

This home is one of the nicest And well kept heritage homes in Kitsilano (Vancouver), and it's situated in the best area of Kitsilano. The people that run the B&B are very nice and make you feel like you're at home. I most definitely recommend this B&B for anyone who visits Vancouver!

- Mary Jackson, from Halfmoon Bay, B.C., Canada 6 September 2008

Our B&B to start and to finish our stay in Canada. Nice people and a B&B in a quite neighbourhood near the water and downtown. Nice hospitality. Thanks

We and our friends enjoyed our stay at this B & B. Quiet, comfortable and not too expensive. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and we would certainly stay here again.

- Fran Birkett, from Victoria, Canada 7 July 2008

Very good price/quality, clean and very friendly owners, a perfect location to explore the city, everything is in walking distance, you can easely park your car for free in the street.

- Anonymous, from Belgium 28 June 2008

This B & B to be much recommended, comfortable and with generous breakfasts! I had 4+ wonderful weeks here. It is quiet, but very near to the sea, with some lovely walks......and frequent buses to take you to the centre of town....to museums, art galleries, places of interest.... and with easy access to the mountains, and across to Vancouver Island. The hostess is very friendly and helpful with advice on places to visit, with guide books, maps, etc. For me, it was an ideal place to enjoy all that Vancouver has to offer!
