My beautiful, spacious, sunny condo is really close to the Canada Line but far enough away so we're not sitting right beside it and minutes away from Yaletown, Gastown, Downtown, South Granville, False Creek, Granville Island, Queen E Park - fabulous walking area and great public transportation. Very accessible to Stanley Park, False Creek Community Centre, Scotibank Dance Centre and the Vancouver Convention Centre. Movie theatre 2 minutes away, lots of cafes, fine dining (a little bit of everything) and also close to nature. This vibrant area has it all!
Located in the very funky, laid-back Cambie Village, across the street from Choices (organic grocery store) with Starbucks a one minute walk away or 'Beans' if you like a more neighborhoody kind of place!
From the Airport to my doorstep in under 25 minutes! Hop on the Canada Line, get off at King Edward Station and you are a 6 minute walk (give or take!) to my beautiful home. Bus stop steps away from my door - really good transportation system.
During the week I'm very busy but on weekends I do love to have my porridge (what can I say!) and would be happy to make you some if I've had time to make it. I try to be flexible with check-in/check-out time however there is the odd occasion where one guest is leaving and another arriving so need to be a little more flexible on my end as to your arrival/departure times, thanks for understanding! Vibrant area (traffic comes & goes) I don't notice it at all however I do supply earplugs if you're not used to any noise.
Parks just down the block, yoga studios nearby, fabulous walking area.
My neighborhood is simply wonderful, I love it so much. Proximity to Canada Line, Queen E Park, village feel, very friendly area. No car necessary. Great coffee bars and restaurants. Movie theatre. Beautiful residential area just around the corner
Canada Line/33 Bus to UBC, 15 Downtown to Yaletown, Downtown, Gastown. So walkable no car needed and not recommended!
Other Things to Note
3rd floor walk up no elevator! Shared bathroom. JJ Beans (fab coffee shop) one block away.
Shoes off inside, thanks! I appreciate it if you're not in a room to turn the lights off. No overnight guests. You have full use of kitchen for making light meals plead no meat! I love my home and hope you feel the same and treat it with the same respect as you would treat your own home, Oh, just hang your towels up in the closet they'll dry faster that way - also, no wet towels on furniture if you don't mind! I want you to feel welcome and warm and invited and know that you will be a wonderful guest so that's it for my rules!
This is my second time staying with Jana and once again I had a fabulous time staying with her. She is a warm, generous and caring person, an absolute joy to be around. She teaches Nia and even let me attend one of her classes. The guest room was clean, warm and inviting with a very comfortable bed. Whenever I come to stay in Vancouver with Jana, my heart feels at home. Thank you Jana for a lovely visit!
It was lovely staying with Jana again. She is very hospitable, her space is immaculate, and has everything I need, especially a comfy bed. She was very gracious about sharing the kitchen. I made breakfast and used her coffee press every morning instead of heading for Starbucks, so I got to relax more and spend less. Hope to see her again in late spring.
Jana was great. Thank you so much for the One week stay with you. She was very friendly and helpful. The Appartement was clean and very lovely. The bedroom was clean and fully furnished. The lovation is Perfect, very walk- friendly and the Public transportation very close and so you are fast in downtown. I Love the friendly Location and the Shops in the near. I will come back. Thanks for the good experience.
Jana has a lovely condo and she is a gracious host. I hadn't read the description carefully so I was a bit apprehensive when I found out the condo only had one bathroom which we would be sharing. Nevertheless, this was no problem.
The Cambie neighborhood is pleasant enough but too far for me to walk to the sites I planned to visit. Bus and subway transportation was available.
I would recommend staying in a more central location if your time is limited. Otherwise you may find yourself spending far too much time and/or money getting around.
There is no AC so I would be cautious in warm weather.
The complex Jana lives in maintains an urban garden where I enjoyed picking my own tomato. Neat.
I am probably alone in this issue but I missed being able to watch tv. There was a tv in the living room but Jana has a very limited selection of cable tv channels and it was impossible to watch the news.
Jana carried my suitcase up the flights of stairs for me but note that the building has no elevator so you won't be caught by surprise. I really have to start reading descriptions more carefully.
Jana was a wonderful host! My first day she was so welcoming and I felt immediately at home in her clean and beautifully furnished apartment. She showed me around the neighbourhood and provided great advice about fun things to do and see in Vancouver. She is an incredibly kind, generous and thoughtful person. We got along very well and I plan to keep in touch with her. Thank you Jana for hosting a great 2 weeks in Vancouver!
Jana has a lovely apartment in a great location. The big advantage is it's position between 2 stations on the Canada line which runs direct from the airport to the city centre so getting around couldn't be easier. There are also a lot of facilities on the doorstep including restaurants, shops and cinema. On the downside, it is on a busy road so traffic noise might be a problem for light sleepers although it didn't bother me overmuch. I was there while the city was in a heatwave so windows were open. Jana provided several fans which were a big help also. Jana is an ideal host, not intrusive but happy to chat and give advice when needed. I really enjoyed my stay and Vancouver
The abode is located in the right place to see the city of Vancouver. The host, Jana was very kind and made me feel like staying at home. Information on good restaurants in Vancouver was perks for staying Jana's home.
from Vancouver, B.C. - love the rain, walking, Nia, yoga, interior design. I am also a certified Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage practitioner which is my latest passion! p.s. that's me on the right!
