I have a bright furnished 2 bedroom suite on a quiet street in central vibrant part of Vancouver. The area has lots of coffee shops & restaurants and easy access to public transit in all directions.
Lots of free parking available on quiet street.
The suite itself is fully furnished and very clean with large south facing windows, hardwood floors, fireplace, dishwasher, TV, wireless internet and laundry (front load washer in suite. Dryer in building).
I am looking for someone to sublet the 2nd bedroom periodically. I am happy to host for anything from a couple of days to a couple of months.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed with linen & towels provided. The room is normally unused, so the double-sized closet and dressers are essentially empty providing lots of space to store gear and clothes as needed.
For longer term rentals, I am generally looking for a clean non-smoker (30 something... ish) who is relatively quiet, but who is also sociable and doesn't spend endless hours simply watching television. It particular suits (though not necessarily limited to) grad students, mature travellers.
I am pretty active after work (volleyball, climbing, running/orienteering), but enjoy hanging out at home once in a while watching films or having friends over for dinner or board games. I have done extensive travelling in the past and always enjoy chatting with fellow travellers.
Since I am often sharing my home with people I accept, it is appreciated if you could tell me a little bit about yourself or update your profile so that I have some sense of who you are.
Best of luck wherever you end up... :o)

Interaction with Guests
This varies quite a bit. I often enjoy long interesting conversations, going out to dinner, or even going hiking with guests, but in some cases, due to our respective schedules, I virtually never meet them.
Lots of restaurants, coffee shops.
Easy access to public transport in multiple directions.
Close vicinity of community centre & public library.
Lots of buses close by going to:
* along broadway
* to the skytrain
No playing of bagpipes after midnight.
Ran is very friendly and he gave us quite a lot of useful informations. The room is spacous and location is ok.
Ran is an excellent host. He was well prepared for my arrival, made me feel very welcome and comfortable and is very easy to get along with. The home is warm and cozy and very well located, it has everything you need within 5-10 minutes walk!
Ran is also happy to help with suggestions for where to go and things to do. If you're an active outdoorsman, I'm positive Ran is the man to speak to for insider local knowledge.
Great neighbourhood close to everything and the room was great for my needs. Even though I didn't get to meet Ran, there were clear instructions that were easy enough to follow. As a solo male business traveler I would definitely stay again.
Ran's place is clean and comfortable and it was very easy to touch base with him. Because I was visiting family nearby, I didn't see much of Ran, but it was great to meet him! Very welcoming! Perfect location in Mount Pleasant, close to shops and transit.
Habe knapp zwei Wochen bei Ran gewohnt und mich sehr wohl und willkommen gefühlt. Die Gegend um Mount Pleasent ist wunderbar, hunderte Bars und kleine hippe Läden. Man ist in 20 min nach Downtown gelaufen. Die Wegbeschreibung zur Wohnung ist super. Alles (Bett, Handtuch, Schlüssel, Infos zur Gegend) war super vorbereitet, als ich ankam. Wir haben uns wunderbar unterhalten übers Reisen, Sport, Politik und Bücher. Ran kennt sich super aus in Vancouver und hatte immer tolle Tipps zum Erkunden der Stadt für mich. Jederzeit gerne wieder!
Clean, comfortable, cozy condo. Located right in the beautiful Mt Pleasant neighborhood which is full of shopping, restaurants, and my favorite, craft breweries. Didn't get a chance to meet Ran but communication was quick and effective. Don't hesitate to stay. Book now!
My boyfriend and I stayed with Ran last week and had an excellent, easy experience. Because we only stayed one night, our interaction with Ran was minimal, but he was a great host - flexible with timing and gave very detailed instructions on how to retrieve the keys when he was not home. The apartment is cozy, well-kept, and in walking distance of Main St. and Broadway - two bustling thoroughfares filled with food and drink options. I'd definitely recommend Ran's place to anyone looking to stay in Mount Pleasant. ///
Side note: the apartment is located directly across the street from the infamous "Dude Chilling Park." If you don't know what I'm talking about, (website hidden) it and have a laugh. :-)

In my spare time I am pretty active - currently with beach volleyball, hiking, orienteering, and rock-climbing.
I also enjoy travelling, reading, foreign films, and intelligent conversation about pretty much anything.
I am often busy after work so may not see much of you, but would be happy to invite you along to some of the outdoor activities that I am doing if you are keen on hiking or other outdoor activities.
