Interaction with Guests
We love to welcome guests into our home! We are both busy people, and generally guests are like roommates who share our home with us.
We are steps away from Commercial Drive, an amazing street and a highlight of Vancouver! Cafes, restaurants and shops! Our neighbourhood is very lovely with beautiful characteristic heritage houses with tree lined streets and blooming flowers! Wonderful views of the mountains and downtown, so quiet and tranquil.
Our home is located about a 5-10 minute walk to Commercial-Broadway Skytrain station which takes you downtown in a few minutes! Many buses also leave from here going to UBC and other destinations.

Juliane and Marty were amazing hosts. They were super friendly, fun to talk to and they gave great suggestions for things to do and how to get around. I wish we were able to spend more time with them. We did get to hang out with their dog, Jinx, a little one day though. He was absolutely adorable. The place was really really clean and we didn't feel like we were intruding on their space. It was also in a fantastic location, close enough to get downtown quickly by public transportation but it was quiet and safe with a great view! It was a great experience, I would definitely stay with Juliane and Marty again!
Julie and Marty's place in Vancouver is Great. We where welcomed by our hosts at the door with big smiles and had a fantastic time. Very friendly and helpful, our hosts guided us to local restaurants and pubs. Great location two blocks from many places to eat and drink and close to the city. Will stay here again when in beautiful BC. Thank you
Juliane and Marty are great hosts. They are so helpfully if you need anything or want something to know. The room is very comfortable and the apartment is clean and cozy. On the balkony you have a amazing view against down town and the mountains. The public transport is very close. It's a great place to be in vancouver.
Julianne and Marty were fantastic hosts and the apartment was welcoming, clean and so close to transport to get around the city! Couldn't have asked for more.
Very accommodating with our arrival as we didn't know when we would be arriving. Very cute dog. Location was perfect for the sites we wanted to see in Vancouver. If you are looking to do lots of tourist things downtown this is a great stay!
We only stayed with Juliane and Marty for one night, but it was lovely. Their apartment is beautiful, and the room we stayed in was very comfortable. Being only a short drive from downtown Vancouver, it was the perfect location becuas getting into the city was easy, but it was quite and beautiful when we got back at night. We didn't get to spend much time with Marty and Juliane since we only had one night and were out and about, but they were very friendly and Marty gave us a great recommendation for breakfast in the morning. And Juliane was very understanding when we late due to the border crossing waits. AND they have a very cute dog, which is always a plus. A very good experience overall.
This was my second stay with Juliane and Marty and it was just as wonderful as the first. Such great, thoughtful hosts. Thank you!

We are a professional couple living in East Vancouver because we love the vibe and culture (and views!!) of this part of the city. I (Juliane) have recently gone back to University as a mature student to become an Educational Psychologist. Marty is in automotive sales and loves meeting new people! We are an easygoing and friendly couple and looking to share our home with travellers and professionals. We are travellers ourselves (having most recently lived in London, England for 2 years) so we love meeting other travellers!! We have been hosting for over two years now and love meeting new people and giving them a nice, comfortable (and central!) place to stay while they visit Vancouver.
We have two resident pet friends: Jinx is a black toy Pomeranian, a quiet and sweet girl. Fenny is a kitty, she is curious and full of life! Everyone always loves Jinx because of her calm sweetness (and because she is just so darn cute!). I love taking her for walks and jogs in this beautiful part of the city!
