The Starlight Suite!
Comfy and convenient 2 bdrm, family friendly, self-catered separate suite, in my detached house in Coquitlam's sought-after area of Ranch Park. Shared back yard and heated (June through Sept) private pool (well...sometimes shared with me and my daughter, or my family if visiting)! 5 minute drive to Coq Town Centre mall, shopping, West Coast Express. Near many parks, local lakes, mountains, city, hiking trails, Burrard Inlet, and all amenities!

The space

The Starlight Suite offers a fully-furnished two-bedroom apartment unit or guest suite, with it's own separate entrance in my detached house in a fantastic residential area of Coquitlam. There are two twin beds in one of the bedrooms, and a queen bed in the master bedroom. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room (which isn't pictured). The suite sleeps four comfortably, however, if necessary a roll-away bed is available for an extra person. In a pinch this could sleep 7, but keep in mind that the suite is 730 square feet, so it will be cozy if all the beds are full! There is free high speed internet, just bring your laptop computer.

The living room, with an electric fireplace is open to the fully-equipped kitchen area, and both offer all the amenities of home. There is a full bathroom, plus a shared laundry room area. Also included in your stay, cable television, and a private telephone land line for free local calls. A calling card is necessary if you will be making a long distance call.

There is access to the locked yard, with the large pool. Adult supervision is required for children as there is no supervision provided.

The suite has been extremely popular since 2003 as a great place for persons or families that are between buying and selling homes, vacationing in the area, visiting out of town family and friends, and insurance claims of fire and damage. We are sure you will enjoy your stay!

Guests have access to the entire driveway during their stay. As well, there is a key to the secured backyard with a pool and swing set, which is shared with the owner and her daughter.

Interaction with guests

As the owner, I love getting to know my guests, however, I presume guests wish their privacy and provide them with such. I live in the upstairs portion of the home, and my daughter is with me part of the time. We may 'bump into eachother' from time to time in the backyard pool area. I am always available for information or calls. We may very well be enjoying eachother's company and having a glass of wine poolside, if the opportunity presents itself! I try to take the direction from my guest.

Other things to note

For longer stays, weekly housekeeping can be arranged with an outside housekeeper for $30/hour.

My daughter (13 in August) if available, would love to babysit your children. She is Certified with the Red Cross Babysitting Course, plus is a St John's Ambulance Volunteer Cadet. She attends First Aid with St John's Ambulance 2 1/2 hours a week.

Loved Cory's help and enthusiasm. Gave her short notice by making booking request very late afternoon and within hours Cory was ready for us, a group of five. Had a great stay and was made to feel welcome.

We are a family of 2 adults and our 2 year old daughter. We had a great 4 night's stay with Cory in the Starlight Suite late May 2017. It's located in a really lovely, quiet residential area with plentiful off-street parking and very easy to find. We were given a very warm welcome from Cory when we arrived and she made sure we had everything we needed before leaving us to settle in. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and toiletries for use in the bathroom were great. Plenty of towels for indoor and pool use, as well as a beach blanket and fluffy robes in the wardrobe. All-in-all a lovely spot in a great location with a really genuine and bubbly hostess.

We enjoyed our stay with Cory who was a welcoming and helpful host who even cleaned the pool early so we could make the most of unexpected good weather. The suite was very well equipped with plenty of storage and very comfortable beds. It provided an excellent base for the 4 of us.

I was very satisfied with Cory's place. We got there early but she allowed us to come in to her place. It was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The BBQ grill and heated pool were a plus. She even had life vests! Cory and her dad were very friendly and welcoming. I couldn't have asked for a better host. We really enjoyed our stay at her place.

Response from Cory:
Thanks for your review Marc. It was great having you and your friends stay! It is great having my dad over to visit me while we build a new pool pump house and a large adjoining pergola in the yard. You will have to visit another time to come and view it completed!

I was born and raised in Coquitlam, and love it! I have had 5 children, and although they don't all live with me now (only 1 part time now), they all love this home in Coquitlam and the pool!

I had an earlier career in the Hospitality and Tourism industry, and after starting my family, I became a Realtor in the area in 1997. In 2002, I realized that there was a great need for people to have a 'home' and not a hotel when they were moving and between homes. There were only a couple 'vacation rental properties' in all the lower mainland when I started out with the Starlight Suite.

I also had a small cottage built in 2004 in Birch Bay, Washington USA, called the Mermaid Hutch. I rented it as a Vacation Rental as well. In 2015 I sold the cottage, which had become a favorite place to stay for many guests.

My family and I have been blessed with meeting such wonderful people through the vacation rentals. As pleasurable as the suite is to guests, we enjoy having people as well! Come and stay...I am sure you won't be disappointed.
