About this listing
Welcome to Strathcona -- one of Vancouver's most sought-after neighbourhoods!
This studio suite offers high ceilings, gorgeous bay windows, exposed beams and polished concrete. It is the garden level of our beautiful heritage house, located right next to downtown. The house has been meticulously renovated, and the suite is wonderfully appointed and finished to the highest standards, including a soaker tub and heated towels in the bathroom, private entrance, flat screen TV with surround sound, wireless internet, queen-sized bed with luxury sheets, queen-sized pull-out sofa, and open-concept kitchen/dining area. There is well-maintained landscaping in the garden outside, and the house is literally steps from MacLean Park, in the heart of the neighbourhood.
There is lots of street parking right out front, and the house is a block from several wonderful delis, grocers and cafes. There's even a fantastic cheese shop and french restaurant less than three blocks away! Best of all, it is ten minutes' stroll to historic Gastown, five minutes to the seawall in False Creek, ten minutes to Rogers Arena. There are frequent buses less than two blocks away, as well as a nearby Skytrain station. We also have two vintage bicycles available for use -- and we're one block off of the city's busiest bike route on Union Street.
Enjoy the pleasure of your own front door! You will be amazed by the peace and tranquility, so conveniently located in the heart of the city. This suite is fully equipped and an ideal 'home away from home' for travelers seeking short or long-term accommodation, and an alternative to uncomfortable hotels. No elevators, no undergraound parking -- instead, we have a lock-box system in place for the key, so it's easy to arrive at your leisure.
Absolutely no smoking! We're totally gay-friendly and family-friendly. We have a two year-old daughter, so we have to make sure everything is alright by her. We ask that guests park on the opposite side of the street, as it is permit-only parking in front of the house.
We immediately felt safe and happy in this lovely flat. It was well-equipped and the bed was extremely comfortable. It's worth noting that as the flat is open plan you do hear the fridge and furnace running during the night. Our hosts were very pleasant and were keen that we should have a good time. They live just above, and are considerate and quiet. The neighbourhood was quiet, but very interesting and varied, partly because it is not far from Chinatown. A very handy bus takes you downtown, but it is also walkable in 20-30 minutes. We were however warned not to walk on East Hastings Street, which is a few blocks away.
We really enjoyed our stay. The location was great for exploring the city, it was great to have use of 2 bicycles, and the apartment was well equipped for cooking and relaxing.
Wir haben uns sehr willkommen gefühlt und wurden persönlich begrüsst. Die Vermieter haben uns in jeglichen Belangen geholfen und sich immer Zeit genommen. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und freundlich eingerichtet. Sehr hilfreich war eine ausgelegte Informationsmappe über wichtige Dinge der Vermieter und Tips für den Aufenthalt, sowie genug Buchmaterial.
The studio apartment was very clean, comfortable and convenient. We would stay there again. The hosts were very helpful. I loved my stay.
This place is top shelf, hardly saw the hosts and this was perfect. Instructions were clear, space was awesome, peaceful and perfect position near to Downtown. Strathcona is a stunning place to stay when in Vancouver, I highly recommend Samantha & Jason's place.
What a lovely time we had staying at Samantha and Jason's studio.
Despite another airbnb host cancelling our reservation at very short notice, airbnb found this great studio for us and it could not have been better. From arriving a little bit early and being able to relax in the sun outside to finding everything we needed inside the studio we had a wonderful four days.
The studio is not far from Chinatown and we used buses to explore Vancouver. There are great little stores onUnion Street and Pizzeria Farina is well worth visiting.
I would recommend staying here to anybody who wants a well equipped, comfortable place to stay in a quirky neighbourhood.
