About this listing
Spacious 3 bedroom character home with exposed brick for a cozy feel on Main Street. Steps away from the best vegetarian, sushi and trendy coffee shops in the city. On the corner of two bike routes, quick walk to Canada line and Broadway!
Welcome to our home in the heart of the historic Mount Pleasant! Your room is large and bright and can easily accommodate two people. We have an extra room on the top floor next to yours that is set up for a home yoga practice, you're welcome to use it. If you've got little people we can easily bring up a futon for a make shift bedroom.
Fresh sheets and towels always provided. Cold breakfast of organic cereals, granola, yogurt and almond milk and fresh fruit to get the day started right.
Location, location, location. Main street is the place to be. A vibrant neighbourhood with nothing but character! Within 5 minutes you can be enjoying local coffee shops, amazing vegetarian restaurants, micro-breweries, Mount Pleasant Rec. Centre, the library and the Vancouver farmers market on Wednesday nights.
We are on the corner of two bike streets (our preferred mode of transport) and can get anywhere easily. Also next to a bike shop that rents bikes! You are also steps away from the 99 bus route and in close proximity to the sky train and Canada line.
Other Things to Note
We have a lovely one year-old dog named coco. She's super friendly and loves people. She will be around (most likely asleep on the couch) but is not allowed in your room.
No smoking inside please!
Murray was very welcoming. The location of the house is perfect . The neighborhood is lovely and the metro is near.
Murray and Raelene (and Coco 3) were perfect hosts. Helping me to find everything I needed, they are very generous and extremely kind. I will definitely recommend their lovely home. The neighborhood is real cute and practical both from airport and train station.
Lots sof cool shops and restaurants. Loved it!
Due to a slight mishap, we were unable to stay with Raelene and Murray. They were very generous to offer to refund our payment and cover the cost of the new room that we ended up renting. I look forward to trying agin next time!
My boyfriend and I had a great experience in Vancouver and our stay was great! Unfortunately, we weren't able to meet Raelene because she was out of town, but Murray was a great host and gave us lots of tips and advice about the best places to visit and eat. The apartment was hard to find at first, but we were able to find it once we contacted Raelene via text (who by the way seemed very friendly!). We didn't have to use our car at all while we were there. We were able to find free parking on athe street and we walked or bussed everywhere.
We had a great time in Vancouver. We were only there for only one night, but Murray's place was super convenient with tons of stuff to do in the neighborhood. Coffee, food, beer, and cool shops all nearby.
Murray made sure the place was as comfortable for us as he could. Complimentary breakfast and coffee before we left in the morning! Really cool host, I would highly suggest staying here if traveling to Vancouver.
Murray was a terrific host, and we really enjoyed sharing a coffee and a bowl of granola with him in the morning. The neighbourhood has lots to offer and great for biking or walking. We were pleased with the accommodation and for anyone on a budget, this is a good place to stay with a comfortable bed and quiet sleeping.
Murray was a fantastic host! I needed a last-minute place to stay on the last day of my trip to Vancouver, and I'm so happy to have ended up at Murray and Raelene's. Not only was the location super convenient and close to interesting shops and cafes, but Murray was incredibly friendly and accommodating. He even provided breakfast and coffee the next morning. I highly recommend this place - warm, welcoming hosts and a room that offers everything you need. My only regret is that I was only able to stay one night and did not get the opportunity to meet Raelene and Coco! Next time. :)
