Cozy, bright room right next to the shared bathroom. Marpole is the best kick-off point for coming in and out of Vancouver via BC Ferries, the USA and the YVR airport. It's also very quick into the city via public transport.
Our happy little home is 4 blocks from Marine Station (Canada Line of the Vancouver Skytrain) giving quick, easy access to much of the city - 20 minutes to downtown! The two single Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, ideal for a couple of buddies travelling together that need their sleeping space. The house is situated on a quiet street in a safe neighbourhood.
*One double bed
*Desk & chair
*Good size closet
*Free laundry facilities
*Shared full bathroom (another half bath close by. Only shared with one guest room, we have our own)
We are happy to share our living space with good natured, interesting people!
Note: We have one other room at this location, so you may not be the only guest at the time of your stay. And we do live here.
Kitchen is available for light use. We have the basics. Please feel free to use what we have. We have a French press for coffee, about half a dozen of each plates and bowls, mugs, plenty of cutlery, a small space in the fridge for guests, some pots, pans etc. We don't have a microwave. If you like to make quick meals in a not so perfect kitchen great, this space will do just fine.
Interaction with guests
I am not always present for the guest's stay as I am sometimes working away. I enjoy sharing my space and have made some good friends. Usually though guests are busy and so am I and we rarely bump into each other.
Other things to note

Just a quick note on this: I welcome travelling couples, but people travelling to Vancouver specifically to meet someone for a tryst in my family home. Just a word of advise, this not a great spot for it. It will probably be awkward especially for the person you may be trying to impress.

You can expect a very basic, warm, clean, place to sleep with light use of my kitchen being ok, so I prefer short stays. I'm not equipped for providing the space for long term guests. I want everyone to be happy with their stay, so I'd prefer to be up front about this. If all you are looking for is a very reasonable place to sleep my place is ideal.
I am a mom and a jock, horse lover and bird lover. I work as a operations manager for a local accounting firm and I come from Vancouver island.
It's actually a massive island with many sights of it's own, both in the city of Victoria (the capital of British Columbia) and outside in the natural environment, including hiking, climbing, surfing, scuba diving, ski hills, mountain biking - you name it! Vancouver offers a whole lot too!!!
We are a welcoming and open minded family who live simply and appreciate nature. We love sports around here, mine (and my son's) is soccer, which I've played for the past 22 years, horse back riding, climbing, golf, etc.
