Our spare room comfortably sleeps two and is centrally located on a quiet street, just a few blocks from the beach. Enjoy getting to know Vancouver on foot, close to anything and everything!! We are very friendly and look forward to hosting you.
BUILDING AND LOCATION:
Our 1100sq ft Apartment is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, in the West End on a tree lined quiet street. We are only minutes away from the beach, the seawall, the art gallery, historic gastown, trendy Robson street and many pubs and clubs. You seriously won't need to cab, or drive! but if you are looking to get out of downtown the Skytrain is only a 10 minute walk away.
The apartment is very large for the location and can easily accommodate another couple, without feeling cramped. The building is a rare heritage building, approximately 110 years old! There is a washer and dryer in the building for your use. We guarantee freshly laundered bedding, towels & a clean apartment! Unfortunately, we cannot provide toiletries, so you will need to bring your own.
The room has a dresser and a desk for your use. The bed has a thick foam mattress, but is soft and has gotten nothing but good reviews from our guests. You can slide the bed against the wall for more floor space or keep it in the middle for easy access on both sides.
We have Wifi! Woohoo! The password will be provided when you check in.
Parking in downtown Vancouver can be a bit tricky!! There is 2 hour parking only until 9pm, then it's free all night until 9am, when it goes back to 2 hour. If you park more than two hours you will probably get a ticket. We suggest you don't drive (since you won't need a car to get around the area) but if you do end up driving be aware that you may need to search for parking for a little bit. There is a 24 hour parkade nearby, but we are unsure of the cost.
We are an engaged couple who enjoys going out, we both do shift work so our schedules are a bit wonky, but we are easy to get a hold of. I work in health care and my partner works at a pub up the street. We are gay friendly. We have two very friendly and clean cats, Roxy & Felix, but they are never allowed in the room you rent - we like to keep it cat free for our guests. We have both lived in Vancouver our entire lives and can show you the best places in the city for eats and treats, or how to find your way around. Drop us a line if you have any questions!
We look forward to having you!
You are free to use anything in the apartment, kitchen, living room, dining room. We do not have cable, but free wifi for your Netflixing & interweb needs.
We both work strange schedules, sometimes we are gone all day or gone all night depending on the shifts we are working. Therefore, you with either see lots of us, or very little. However, we ensure to always be available via email or phone if you have any concerns, and we will be very happy to chat when we cross paths :)
The neighbourhood is very unique. It is a quiet tree lined street, that you would never expect to find in the middle of a major city. Therefore, you get to stay in the city without all the noise and riff-raff. We are very close to pubs, bars, beach, stores and high end shopping.
Getting around downtown Vancouver from where we live is as easy as walking out the front door. However, if you wish to venture further, the skytrain is 10 minutes away and we are 2 blocks from the bus.
Let us know if there is anything you any need, or any questions you have while staying. We have found that many people simply want to be left alone to wander the city and crash in their room, while others are more social with us and like recommendations. Just let us know! :)
My stay with Angie and Jackie was wonderfully calm and restfull. Their home is welcoming and the two cats are delightfull and fun. Fabulas location.
This was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't have worked out better. The location was perfect and I was able to walk everywhere. I never got to meet Jackie but Angie was friendly and helpful and I felt very comfortable in their home. And it was nice having a warm welcome from the cats every time I walked in the door. I would definitely ask to stay again when I'm back in Vancouver.
We had short and pleasant time at Angie's and Jackie's place.Perfect for short time stay.Most of the time we were outside the apartment but everything was in order and ready for us.They let us leave our stuff before we checked in because we arrived bit earlier.Bed was not most comfortable for two persons,bit too hot in the room so we had to have window most of the night open.Downside of having window open is that is close to building entrance so there is some noise coming from people entering building.Overall we would recommend this place for occasional traveler to Vancouver.
Thank you Angie and Jackie.

Another fantastic stay with Angie and Jackie! As before, we met both Angie and Jackie and they were as kind and considerate as everyone before has noted! The cats are friendly and we'll miss them both. Location couldn't be better for exploring all of Vancouver!
We were there only overnight but all the arrangements worked out great. The space was lovely. I only met Jackie, but she was very nice...helpful and welcoming. Great location.
Great apartment & location. Lots of restaurants, supermarket & bars close by & Stanley park right at your doorstep. The room is comfortable & Jackie & Angie provide information to help with your stay. The cats are very sweet.
We met both Angie and Jackie and they were as kind and considerate as everyone before has noted! They had a creative solution to our arriving a bit late that was much appreciated. The cats are friendly and we'll miss them both. Location couldn't be better for exploring all of Vancouver!
Our stay was really good, Angie & jackie have the best location to explore the city, go for a jog on the beach, cycling to Stanley Park, going out for a drink or to the cinema. We loved our time there and we loved the two funny cats!
The room is spacious, you have washing machine and a kitchen which comes in really handy!
Angie and Jackie's place was a great location! The room was comfortable, clean and cosy. We enjoyed our stay and would love to revisit Vancouver!
Great, walkable location. I was in full-day workshops, out early and back late, so I only met one of the hosts in passing, but spent some quality time w/ the sweet, mellow cats! This spot is set up well for a self-serve, keep-to-yourself approach, which was great for me (and, from other reviews, sounds like they're also go-the-extra-mile hosts with lots of great recommendations, for folks who are doing more sightseeing and such.) I would definitely stay here again.
