We are renting out a private room offering a queen size bed, in our 1500 sq/ft Richmond BC home. Our place is ideal for anyone that has a short layover in Vancouver or has an early flight to catch in the morning.
Our cozy 1500 sq/ft home is located in a small community called Burkeville, and is literally only a 5 minute drive from the airport. Although we are close to the airport, guests regularly comment about how peaceful and quiet their sleep was.
We will be sharing the main floor bathroom and shower. You are more than welcome to help yourself to the kitchen, laundry room, and TV room too.
We do have pets, so please don't book with us if you are allergic to cats or dogs. Our dogs get excited when new people come over, and they may bark when you first arrive, but only for a couple of minutes and then they will settle right down.
We provide clean towels, fresh linens, free parking, free wifi, basic cable or xbmc media center which offers limitless movies in the tv room.
If you want to look us up on a map to get a clearer idea of where we are located, you can look up the Delta Airport Hotel, as they are on the closest cross street. We have several restaurants within walking distance and there is a Starbucks 2 minutes from our front door.
We are a 5 minute cab ride from YVR airport in a small community called Burkeville. The cab ride will cost around $10.00.
We're also only a 10 minute walk to Sea Island Centre SkyTrain Station where you can catch the Waterfront train that takes you directly downtown in 17 minutes or to the airport in 3 minutes. If you don't want to walk the 10 minutes, there is also a bus stop called Airport Station stop that is a 1 minute walk form our front door (70 meters). The bus that picks you up there (C92 approx every 20 minutes) will also drop you off at a sky train station, where you can also catch a direct train downtown. Alternatively, if you have a car we offer free parking while you stay with us.
Other Things to Note
If you wish to leave a car parked here while you aren't staying with us, we charge $5.00 per night.
The only solid house rules are that the cat is NOT allowed outside and the dogs are not allowed to be fed any people food at all, as it causes them extreme tummy aches!!
We have keyless entry on our front door, so we ask that you please lock the door on your way out (you only need to press one button).
Other than that, we just ask that you enjoy our place and treat it like it was your own :)
Kelly and Caetano were very friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts. The house was always clean and bed was super comfy. We could not have asked for a more perfect first experience with air bnb.
We had a very good stay with Kelly and Caetano. They were both extremly welcoming and gave us lots of information about where to go... besides that we had 12 hours of wonderful sleep after a long jorney from New Zealand :-)
Great place to stay. Kelly and Caetano are very friendly abs we felt really welcome in their home. Really comfortable bed and easy to get downtown.
Staying with Kelly and Caetano was one of the best experiences I've had with airbnb. Their home is lovely - your room is exactly as pictured, and towels and bottles of water were provided as well. The bed is absurdly comfortable, and furnished with many pillows. Everything was super clean and neat, and their cats and dogs were chill and friendly. (They also have a well-appointed saltwater fish tank, which was fun to watch.) Their proximity to the airport can't be beat, either - it's hardly a five-minute ride, perfect for an overnight layover.
Kelly and Caetano themselves were everything you'd want out of airbnb hosts - accommodating, super informative, and a lot of fun! They gave us the rundown on the house, convenient transportation to the airport and downtown, and a lovely local bar with tasty food soon after arrival. There are lots of maps and brochures with things to do provided if you've got a longer stay in mind, and they're happy to answer any questions you've got.
I would absolutely stay with them again if I needed a place in Vancouver, without hesitation.
Very nice house with convinient location. I only spent one night here and left at the early morning. They were extremely nice and helpful in my stay when I met with an awesome day without my baggage with me. This left me felt warm very much.
Highly recommende this place.
It is so convenient to drive rental car from airport to the place. I felt very comfortable in the nice place. Kelly & Caetano Mckechnie are pretty friendly, as well as their lovely dog and cat. I love the place.
Perfect hosts, so lovely to chat to and the double bed was so comfortable!! Had such a good night's sleep and the taxi fare to the airport was less than $10! Very cute pets, I loved them!! Kelly left me a range of hot drinks for the morning and told me to make myself at home. Genuinely lovely people and beautiful home 10/10
We are a newly engaged couple that live with our 2 cats, 3 dogs and a large salt water fish tank, in Richmond BC. We have rented out some of our properties before, and therefore, we are obviously respectful of others homes.
We have recently decided that we want to go on a 'mini' trip once a month (4 days is better than no-days, right??), and we have found Airbnb to be the perfect site for both finding and offering, clean, affordable, safe, and convenient accommodation!
