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 Chris are awesome! I was looking for a place to stay before moving into an apartment I rented in Vancouver. My parents were with me and we’re from Brazil. This was the first time my parents were traveling to Canada so I had a mission of finding an affordable place they would feel comfortable and safe before moving into my new apartment… and you know what!? Mission accomplished! Samantha’s house was the perfect place! They made every single effort to make all of us feel comfortable and safe! Their house is very clean and organized. Highly recommended!
Amazing hosts . Super house , clean and comfortable. ! We highly recommend them. Thank you Samantha and Chtis!
My buddy and I had been planning for months a trip to Vancouvery/Surrey and the Greater Vancouver area. It was very difficult finding a place to stay. Some places were very pricey and others affordable but not in the best location and did not seem too comfortable. We then came across Samantha's listing and it sounded too good to be true. The price was right and the location was great (outside of busy Vancouver and accessible to the Greater Vancouver area), and most important of all, it seemed clean and cozy. The rooms were not bland like in a hotel, there was warmth and tranquility and plushy beds that made me want to stay in bed longer. Samantha was a great host! Very friendly, very professional, and took a few hours of her time to show us around the neighborhood and made several suggestions of places to go. Highly recommended – 5/5
When we arrived Samantha organized her mother to welcome and show us around the House. She was super friendly, helpful and explained everything very well. She gave us lots of hint's where to go and how to travel into the city of Vancouver. Our Room was very spacious and all of the House was super clean.
Later we met Samantha, as her mother she is super friendly. We enjoyed going with her, friends and family to Grouse Mountain. We really enjoyed to have this great Host in Vancouver, Samantha is very enthusiastic about meeting and talking with her guests. We are very sad about not meeting Chris, but may we'll see them in Switzerland or again in Vancouver?
We recommend to stay with Samantha and Chris if you get a chance!
Samantha and Chris is a lovely couple, and great host! The experience was wonderful! Rooms are clean and bed comfortable, with everything handy in kitchen and washroom. Samantha did us a lot of favor, and provided valuable advices. The location is convenient, and close to walmart and some good restaurants!Beach and an shopping area is nearby too. Would strongly recommend to anyone to stay in Samantha's place!
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.
