Accommodations with Quintessential Vancouver Views & Central Location

Our Ponderosa Studios are private studio suites and are great for singles, couples, families, and groups. The University of British Columbia is British Columbia’s oldest university and is filled with history, making our rentals a very distinct cultural experience for those visiting Vancouver over a standard hotel room.

You will feel like a true Vancouverite in our suites that offer a beautiful backdrop of Vancouver’s exquisite landscapes. Expect to see beautiful natural pines and mountains. Our accommodations are in close proximity to downtown Vancouver (no more than 25 minutes to see world-famous sites like Stanley Park, as well as nearby downtown neighbourhoods like the historic, charming Gastown). As such, downtown Vancouver offers a very ideal spot for beginning your travels as you can explore everything it has to offer. Mountains, an idyllic harbour, ocean fronts, entertainment, restaurants, and nightlife can all be found in downtown Vancouver.

Within walking distance are the luscious UBC Botanical Gardens with the Greenheart Canopy Walkway eco-adventure, where you can purchase rare plants and discover plants from all over the world at your fingertips. Nearby is also the Pacific Museum of the Earth which is filled with fossils, a tornado machine, and even an 80 million year old dinosaur skeleton!

In short, our standard suites offer a unique West Coast accommodation experience, beautiful views, a central location, and convenience everything you could want and more.
