The Space

Welcome to my castle!
And enjoy your own cosy and clean bedroom and private bathroom. The bed is really comfy and always down even though it say's in the listing that it is a sofa bed. (If you really want a fabulous bed just like the one you left at home, then please pay the extra $50 a night and book somewhere else !)
You also have the run of the whole house and garden. So please make yourself at home, "mi castle es su castle". If you don't feel like going out for breakfast I will make sure there is no shortage of toast and fruit, and the tea kettle is constantly on!

This town house is in what I consider to be the best location in the downtown core, a five minute walk to both English Bay and the beaches as well as the busy shopping area of Robson Street. Vibrant dining areas such as Denman Street and Davie Street are only minutes away too. Historic Gastown is a healthy 30 minute walk through the centre of the business and shopping areas, taking you past places like the Art Gallery and Granville Street on your way there. At the bottom of Robson Street you will find the sporting hub of Vancouver with both BC Place and Rogers Arena, home to the Canucks, Whitecaps and BC Lions.
You really can't beat the location!

I generally work from home as I am a freelance artist. So I'll be either busy drawing on my computer or in the garden painting a canvas.
Should you need a parking space there is one secure 'underground' spot available to you while you explore by foot or by bike. I have 2 bikes that you can use should you choose to go for a ride around the seawall that loops around the stunning and famous Stanley Park. (Cost for parking and bikes = 1 bottle of wine !)

The apartment has wireless internet as well as cable television. Definitely home away from home!

Cypress, Grouse and Seymour Mountains are approximately 30 minutes away and Whistler is a scenic 2 hour drive .

The neighbourhood is surprisingly quiet at night considering the amount of people that live in this geographically compact area.

Vancouver has many diverse, interesting and historical locations for you to find. I can always give you some of my local knowledge tips to smooth out the bumps of being in a new and exciting place.

Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend.


Guest Access

Guests will have access to my secure personal parking stall, as well as any of my 3 bicycles, should you want to have a quick zip around the sea wall, which is spectacular ! You can also use anything you like in the house from a teaspoon to the TV.
Please make yourselves at home.

Interaction with Guests

I will interact with guests as much as I think needs to be done. (If you talk, I talk !) I'm quite wise about keeping my distance, but I know when to interject when necessary.
I've taken guests for sushi dinners, to see friends bands play, gone around the sea wall on bikes, sorted them out kayaking trips with friends, gone to the pub for poutine, taken them on firework watching cruises on a mates yacht, helped with getting their heavy bags back to the airport, blown up a sofa bed with my own breath (nearly passed out 2wice !) so that guests friends and children are comfortable, given countless bottles of wine and beers to guests and sat and enjoyed the company of people from all over the world !
All of which I have loved doing.
Please let me know if you need anything else !

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is very vibrant and alive 24-7, so please don't be shocked by a skateboarder skootlin down the street at 4 in the morning ! I love having Stanley Park so close and adore going round the sea wall on my bike whenever I can.
It can be surprisingly quiet at night despite the densely packed residential area of downtown.
If you love energetic city life then this is definitely the spot for you.

Getting Around

Public transport is so easy from my place. Buses or Sky train services are so close you'll love it !
Walking around is easy. Everywhere is within 30 or so minutes or if you like you can grab my bikes and tootle off on them to explore the city.
