The Space

Come share our bright corner condo and stay in your own large bedroom with queen bed and private en suite bathroom in the heart of beautiful downtown Vancouver! We would love to share our home with you. It includes in-suite laundry, free parking, wireless internet and long distance calling as well as continental breakfast. The building has a pool, sauna, hot tub and modest gym for you to enjoy during your stay.
Our central location means you will be in the middle of it all - mere steps from Granville Street’s entertainment district and just blocks from the Westend, Yaletown, Robson Street, shopping, the seawall, Stanley Park and transit including the Skytrain and Canada Line.
We are an easy going and friendly working couple who have lived in Vancouver for years and are happy to open our home to visitors.
Let us help make your visit to Vancouver enjoyable and comfortable!

  • J'ai voyagé avec ma soeur et nous avons grandement apprécié nos hôtes, la chambre et surtout la proximité des lieux. Nous sommes très contentes d'y avoir séjourné et nous les recommandons sans hésitation. Merci pour tout Darryl et Ron.

  • I had an excellent stay here. Darryl and Ron are very nice and accommodating. My bedroom and bathroom had everything I needed and more....very comfy bed, cable TV, plenty of storage, good shower, nice view, comfortable temperature and VERY Clean. The location was outstanding as I could walk to both Granville Island Aquabus and back from the beach at Stanley Park. I easily used public transit by catching the Davie Street bus steps from their door to go to Stanley Park and to the Pacific Central Train Station for my departure. The building has a nice lobby and is very secure. I felt very safe in the condo, building, and in the neighborhood which was important to me traveling alone..

  • darryl and ron were both super helpful and interesting to talk to. darryl was the main contact person and he was always immediately available and responsive to emails and texts. he generously accommodated our cruise schedule and allowed us to drop off heavy luggage in the morning so that we could sightsee in town easily. location was perfect for waling everywhere, yet close to the bus/taxi. easy to get to granville island. the scones and coffee/tea/yogurt/bananas in the morning were fantastic! the views from the windows were serene and fun for us. the room and private bath were perfect, quiet, comfortable, clean. great bed! super safe and secure building! we'd come again. :) highly recommended!

  • Darryl & Ron were great hosts. Their apartment & it's location in Vancouver was simply the best. Close to transport, shops & with great views you could not want anything more. The guys were welcoming & helpful. The apartment was very well setup with good privacy. We found Vancouver a great place to stay & visit. No hesitation in recommending Ron & Darryl.

  • We were greeted by Darryl at the apartment and he made us feel very welcome. He provided lots of useful information and went to the trouble to ensure bread and milk were available for breakfast including delicious scones on the first morning. We can only reinforce all the favourable comments made by other guests. The apartment is well located with good quality, reasonably priced restaurants nearby. It is a short stroll to the Aquabus jetty and Reckless bike hire and about 1.5 km to Canada Place and the waterfront area. The five block walk from Yaletown Roadhouse Station was not arduous even with suitcases. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. We slept soundly and having a swim each morning in the indoor pool was a great way to start each day. In addition, it was an experience of apartment living that we had never done before.

  • Great place, located very central in Vancouver, near to train station. Darryl was very helpful with advice on where to go etc. Nice and clean room, with a very nice private bathroom. I was also able to do my laundry in their appartment, which was really nice after a week of travels already. In the morning a nice breakfast and coffee was ready for us in the living room!

  • 5* accommodation 5* hosts! Darryl & Ron (+ Sue!) were just (email hidden)ter 3 days they left us in their home to go on holiday, how amazing was that, we felt very honoured.
    The apartment is beautiful,the fixture & fittings are of a very high quality, it is immaculately clean. The tourist bus is steps away from the front door as is the trolley bus, if you want the hustle & bustle and lively bars they are about 5 minutes away. It was a perfect location for us.
    Darryl & Ron are just fabulous hosts who are very welcoming, very friendly & helpful, we were made to feel at home straight away.
    Highly recommend Darryl & Ron's apartment and the scones are pretty special too!

  • Great location and I would recommend Darryl & Ron to everyone. Room was very clean and very comfortable. Plus who can refuse fresh coffee and scones for breakfast. Darryl was very helpful with recommendations for activities. This location was so convenient to everything downtown Vancouver has to offer. I would definitely stay with Darryl & Ron again.

  • We loved staying with Darryl and Ron. The guest room and bathroom were clean and the bed was very comfortable (firm but with just the right amount of softness). Their location is amazing! You can walk across the bridge or catch a water taxi to get to Granville Island, walk a couple blocks to rent bikes to ride up and explore Stanley park (we rented electric bikes from Reckless Bicycles at 1357 Hornby Street - one of our best decisions of the trip), and a couple of blocks to lots of restaurants/bars/nightlife on Hamilton Street (Yaletown - be sure to check out Yaletown Distilling Company at 1132 Hamilton Street - their gin will change your life!). We also appreciated that their building had good security - we were able to park our rental car in their underground gated garage and we had our own key fob and keys so we could come and go as we pleased. It was great that we could do a quick load of laundry to wash all of our hiking clothes after getting sweaty while hiking in Whistler. They even had a hair dryer for me to use. They made room for us to put some beer/wine and leftovers in their refrigerator and had bananas, apples, yogurt, and granola bars for us to eat for breakfast.

    Vancouver is a gorgeous and lively city and we were in the best place to experience all the fun it has to offer. Thank you again Darryl and Ron - we hope to be able to stay with you again!

  • Friendly hosts, made us feel at home. We would like to thank Darryl for helping us to get a cab when we desperately needed one to the bus station.
    Room is clean and bright. Location is superb, right in the city centre.
    Will definitely recommended others.
