Our one bedroom garden suite is located steps away from East Village where you can find all the amenities, a short distance to Commercial Drive (Vancouver's little Italy) and close to all major bus routes to downtown and the North Shore. Enjoy a comfortable stay in a great location.
Our suite is newly renovated and freshly painted. A great place to stay for short or long term. It is bright, spacious and very private.
Unlike the map shown we are located on a residential street with much less traffic then this intersection. Although our street does receive some overflow traffic at rush hour, its pretty minimal.
You'll enter the suite from the front garden into the living room. There is modern comfortable furnishings and WiFi throughout the apartment. The couch is comfortable to sleep on and there is lots of space to lounge with a good book or relax in the morning with a cup of coffee. We provide local newspapers to browse and get a sense of the city and to find out about local events.
The bedroom is very comfortable with a full closet, queen size pillow top bed and tall boy dresser to make you feel at home. There is a blackout curtain in case you would like to rest during the day after a long flight. Fresh cotton sheets and extra blankets and pillows are found in the closet for your comfort.
There is a spacious kitchen equipped with an electric range, stainless steel fridge with ice/water dispenser, blender, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and is stocked with everything that you would need. A table that can comfortably seat three can also expand to accommodate more.
The bathroom has a small deep soaker tub and comes stocked with fresh linens, hand soap and a hair dryer. Please note that this is a lower suite and there are some sections with lower than standard ceilings.
Out the back door, you enter the laundry room where you will find a front loading washer and dryer. The linen closet is stocked with laundry soap, an iron, clean linens and any other extra items you may need to have a comfortable stay.
We look forward to meeting you and providing you with a welcoming stay in Vancouver.

Our family lives upstairs. We have one toddler and an eight year old. We are quiet but do rise early (7am) and go to bed early (8pm) - at least our kids do! The sound proofing between floors is fairly good except you may hear our son crawling as he is a little heavy on his hands and knees when he gets excited but for the most part we are out at the park or beach and home for naps and snacks, so the house is most often quiet and peaceful. Our son's room is above the laundry room (opposite end of where the bedroom is in the garden suite) so if he did happen to cry in the night you wouldn't hear it. We ask guests to stay only if they are hoping to have a quiet retreat as late night parties, loud visiting and/or music etc. don't suit us or our neighbours.
We do usually stay close to home so we are happy to help in any way by answering questions or giving you directions.

Friendly, accommodating, and spacious!
We booked our reservation very last minute and Jessica took it in stride. Their place may not be the biggest, but it was more than enough for us and the layout was excellent. It felt like an entire apartment by itself and the space was efficiently laid out while retaining a cozy feel, like the listing describes. Would definitely book again.
What a wonderful place to come back to after exploring Vancouver! Felt like we were coming home. Great restaurants close by. Transportation was easy to use. Jessica and Jonathan were welcoming and very helpful with all our questions. We had a great trip and are so happy to have stayed here.
This cozy retreat basement studio was truly a home away from home for me for over two months in East Van while doing some work at SFU. Jess was so warm, thoughtful and easy-going - always ready to make a suggestion or provide something that may have been 'missing' to make my experience and stay there more comfortable. The studio is entirely re-done and brand new, with everything you need and a wonderfully equipped kitchen! The best part about the place is a toss up - betweeen the deep soaker tub and the wonderfully comfortable bed. Whether for a weekend or for a short term work visit, you can't go wrong - you will be cozy, rested, and well-taken care of here, plus with East Van/Hasting's Sunrise at your doorstep, you neighborhood experience of fantastic cafes, groceries and eateries is just minutes away! I will maintain a very fond memory of my stay in Vancouver, and Jess' place had a big part to play in that.
we had a wonderful stay at jessicas and jonathans apartment on september 2013. they were fabulous hosts, very responsive and friendly and even made it possible to renew our reservation for some more nights. the apartment was absolutely cosy, super comfy and clean! you will have everything you need there to feel home immediately and it is very spacious too. above that there are some very nice restaurants and cafes near their house, which we really enjoyed! we can absolutely recommend staying at there house when visiting vancouver! thanks a lot!!
Clean and well-appointed, easy to locate, easy parking. My friend and I found this place to be just right for our overnight trip to Vancouver. We met Jessica and her two children when we arrived. The entrance is separate from theirs so we never saw her again. She was kind and offered us an extra blanket which was helpful.
The apartment was in a good location and Jessica and Jonathan were very friendly and helpful with their suggestions and accommodations.
The place was very clean and cozy. And was really well furnished with everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. We recommend staying here if your visiting Vancouver. The hosts are really nice people and there when you need something , she recommended places to go which was helpful. The host was flexible with our check in and check out time which was nice. Great location, So close to everything!! We would stay here again next time we are in town.
Jessica and Jonathan were great! Very quick to respond to any inquires we had and great people. My husband and collegues spent 3 nights and were very pleased with the cozy suite. We will definitely stay there again!
We absolutely loved staying at Jessica and Jonathan's place. They were really friendly and kind, and the apartment itself was exactly as described on its page. It was very clean and had everything that a traveler could wish for. The nice interior design was a bonus! The location is actually very convenient if you wish to visit not only Vancouver but also other parts of BC such as North Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster. I recommend Jessica and Jonathan's place for anyone who wishes to travel oh so beautiful BC!
Very clean & very comfy
