About this listing
We are a young Canadian couple that loves to travel and loves to welcome fellow travellers into our home. We have just recently bought a house five minutes from White Rock Beach and we want to share our space with others. We live close to parks, shopping and the US Border. We love meeting people from around the globe and taking them around to see our beautiful province, if you love to hike, swim, snowboard/ski or just relax by the beach, we can accommodate you. Come stay with us, you will LOVE IT!
You will have your own bathroom, desk and TV. We have a BBQ, kitchen, wireless internet. We also have a relaxing backyard that you are more than welcome to use and enjoy. We also have a nice fire pit outside and a fireplace inside. We have laundry amenities if you need them.
There are many shops near by where you could walk to or we can bring you to, groceries, malls or outlets (Walmart/Safeway/Winners etc.). Our street is on a bus route so it is easy to hop on a bus and go wherever you'd like.
What makes our place unique is: the company of course! If you like hiking, snowboarding, swimming or just a walk in the park, we will join you (or not, it's up to you). :-)
We have lots of general amenities available to you. Your access is around the back of the house so you can come and go as you please. You have access to your own kitchen space and a common TV room/gym downstairs near your room. You will have your own bathroom and access to our laundry facilities if you would like to do your laundry while you are here.
Interaction with Guests
Usually, we like to visit with our guests' the first day or two just to get to know you a little; after this we leave you to do as you wish by staying out of your space.
What we love about our neighbourhood is that we are close to many shops: grocery stores, clothing stores, dry-cleaners, bakeries and much more. We are also fairly close to the beach, a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute walk. There is a lot within arms reach of us and it's nice.
If you do not have a vehicle, the only way to get around is by bus or on foot. We walk a lot, or ride our bikes, we are pretty flexible with lending out our bikes, as long as you take care of them and lock them up.
We technically have two rooms, one queen bed and one double bed, we can accommodate more people (say a family) if need be. More than two people, you will need our single room as we can't fit three people in the double, unfortunately. The charge for the second room is $30/night. Special deals can be made if you are staying for longer than two nights. We are relaxed individuals, if you respect our space, we will respect yours. Smoking is allowed outside, we have a big backyard.
**There is an additional $15 fee (per guest) if you would like breakfast along with your stay, as well as a tour of Vancouver can be provided for a small fee of $25 (per guest).**
Samantha and Mike were excellent hosts, with great communications. They were very accommodating for our last minute reservations and late arrival. The room was very nice and the bed comfy. We will be back again when visiting the Vancouver area. We found the location very convenient, close to the border crossing. We recommend highly.
A perfect stay, couldn't have asked for better hosts. Room and living space was private and quite and really nice backyard to hangout in during the day. Sam and Chris were incredibly helpful and kind which made us feel welcome immediately. Would defiantly stay again.
We had a good stay at Samantha's house. She and Chris made us feel very welcome and are really nice hosts. The bedroom and the bathroom were very clean and well-equipped. There is also a kitchenette where some light cooking can be done, like breakfast. It would be ideal for people interested in spending a few nights. The beach is about a 30 mins walk.
Samantha and Chris are awesome hosts. We arrived a bit late for checkin, they were very welcoming and took care of all details to make sure we felt at home. The suite is great. Place is quiet, clean, beautiful garden. All as indicated here, and better. A short drive to the White Rock beach. Would definitely recommend, and would like to stop by again.
Due to an AirBnb glitch I didn't get to stay at Samantha's place - as it was double booked. She was very helpful and found me a place nearby at her friend's Airbnb place. I'm looking forward to staying at Samantha's sometime when I'm in Vancouver again. Thank you for sorting things out!
We had a very pleasant 2 nights at Samantha's house. Despite being on a fairly main road the house is set back and very quiet. Everything was clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having our own kitchen space to prepare breakfast. Samantha was very concerned for our well-being and we felt most welcome.

About the Host, Samantha
We are a young Canadian couple that loves to travel and to welcome fellow travellers into our home. We have just recently bought a house and are looking forward to sharing our excitement with others from around the globe. We live five minutes from White Rock beach in South Surrey British Columbia and we are very close to shopping, parks and the US border. We are an adventurous young couple that loves the outdoors: we love to hike, surf and snowboard, and we enjoy bringing others with us to show them how beautiful our province is. I, Samantha, speak French and bits of Spanish, if you speak either of these languages, we will get along great! Come stay with us, you will not regret it! :-)
