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!
I had the most wonderful time staying with Jana in her beautiful home. This is the first time I booked a room with AirBnB and it was a wonderful experience. Jana's home is not only beautiful and comfortable, but it is also located in a great part of town. It is very easy to get to from the airport as it just a few blocks from The Canada Line. It is also within walking distance to many great shops and restaurants (on Cambie St. and a few blocks to Main St.). I took several leisurely walks in the neighborhood as I settled on where to eat for lunch and dinner. Very safe neighborhood!
Jana is such a warm host. There was a little glitch in my travel plans and she was able to accommodate me as my arrival times had changed. She prepared travel sized bathroom toiletries and a couple of granola bars for me for my arrival. I honestly feel that my stay in Vancouver was enriched by staying at Jana's place - it was nice to come back to her home to relax after a long day out. She made me tea and we had great conversations over a bowl of porridge on Saturday morning.
When I was walking about in the downtown area one day, I saw many tourists/visitors coming out of the fancy, downtown hotels and I thought to myself, "I much rather prefer that I'm staying with Jana in her quiet neighborhood."
I am dying to go back to Vancouver as it is an AMAZING city and you can bet that I will stay with Jana again. As a matter of fact, I'm sending two friends her way as they plan their travels.
Jana är en omtänksam och generös person och värd och allt var väldigt lätt och smidigt. Rummet är mycket fint och sängen jättebra, hela lägenheten andas harmoni. Läget är perfekt bara en kort promenad och några stop med sky train så är man i centrum. Det finns många bra restauranger och kaféer direkt utanför dörren och man känner sig trygg att gå i området även på kvällen. Ta med öronproppar om ni är ovana vid att sova med trafik utanför sovrumsfönstret.
I had a fantastic stay with Jana - who was a great host. Everything was easy, homely, clean, great bed and lovely linen. Excellent location in a safe part of town just a few stops on the Canada Line out of the city centre. Thank you!
As a first time user of air bnb, I was slightly anxious but Jana truely exceeded my expectations. The apartment was beautiful and clean, with a lovely bedroom including a very comfortable bed! I felt very welcome and Jana really went out of her way to make me feel comfortable.
The location was great and felt safe, with the Canada Line being a walkable distance, making all the sights of Vancouver accessible.
I feel very lucky to have chosen such a wonderful place to stay, with an excellent and warm host. Highly recommended and I will be staying here again if ever I am in Vancouver!
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.
