About This Listing
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 JJ Bean (my fave) 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 please no meat or fish! 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! As it is a shared bathroom and also because I want to leave a small footprint on this beautiful Earth of ours, please, short showers! A 10 minute shower uses up to 300 litres of water and generates up to 1.8 kg. of CO2 emissions! By cutting shower time to 5 minutes we can reduce our water usage & C02 emissions by 70-80% savings thousands of litres of water & hundreds of kilograms of C02 emissions a year!
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!
Jana is a very nice and helpful person and her place is just adorable!! Water and cereals in the room upon arriving :) bed is fantastic, furniture as well. Perfect place to discover Vancouver because of public transportation within walking distance. I liked it! :)
Jana made me feel very welcome. The accommodation was as described in the Airbnb write-up, a single room, very neat and tidy and as already noted, a hospitable host to ensure that I was comfortable. The location is super with close access to the Canada Line. The Cambie Village setting has all the shopping conveniences virtually outside the front door. I highly recommend this accommodation for a single person visiting Vancouver.
Jana was a amazing host and I had the most wonderful time at her place. She is a warm and attentive person who respected my privacy and made me feel at home at the same time. Her apartment is beautifully decorated, very clean and has a super comfortable bed. The location could not be any better: Beautiful and safe neighborhood with neat houses, tree-lined roads and stunning parks, several small shops, coffeehouses including Starbucks, many restaurants, super markets and a fantastic access to public transportation all within a few minutes walking distance. Skytrain is a 5 minute walk away and takes you in just 20 minutes to the airport, in 8 minutes to the city centre and in 10 minutes to the Vancouver Convention Centre without changing trains. Jana showed me around the neighborhood and her favorite places and gave me priceless recommendations for getting around and where to go and what to do. I also really enjoyed walking with her and she took me to spectacular local sites such as Queen Elizabeth Park with an unbelievable view over the city of Vancouver. Jana made my trip to Vancouver just perfect and I would always stay with her anytime I go to Vancouver.
Jana was a great host. She is extremely warm and hospitable, making my stay very pleasant. She gave me a bunch of recommendations on places to eat and visit, and was also very helpful in getting instructions for me to take public transportation. Her home is located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood. I felt very safe walking around by myself even at night. The guest room was also very clean and neat, and I felt at home staying there.
Jana is really nice and I enjoyed staying at her apartment very much. The place is full of artistic atmosphere and the bed is super comfortable. The location is very convenience. Coffee shop, super market and Sky train are nearby.
Jana was fantastic! It was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't have gone better. She took me for a walk to show me the neighborhood (which I absolutely loved) and her favorite coffee shop - JJ Bean.
It's extremely conveniently located and getting downtown or to the airport is just a short train ride away (maybe 10 minutes away).
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!
