The Neighborhood

Strathcona is the oldest neighbourhood in Vancouver and fast becoming the trendiest place to live. A central city spot, you’ll be spoilt for choice with cute cafes, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and a park with a playground and off-leash area for dogs.
You’re five minutes walk from downtown Vancouver, the artistic Commercial Drive and Main Street areas. Chinatown is a stone’s throw away, where you‘ll discover a wide range of eating and shopping options.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What an awesome place. Spic and span clean, modern and stylish Euro style living. Super comfortable bed. Strathcona neighborhood is quiet with coffee and specialty grocers close and a short walk or bike to the city action. Cam was welcoming, extremely helpful, super friendly and great to talk to. He was there when we needed something but respectful of our space. Basically your perfect host.

  • The Funky Modern Space apartment is really nice and cosy, and it is in a great neighborhood in Vancouver. Cam is a perfect host, friendly and always helpful if you have any questions. All in all I had a great time in Vancouver.

    I can highly recommend the place and the host.

  • We had a great experience at the Funky Modern Space! Cam was super helpful and gave us great tips for enjoying Vancouver. The house is clean and has pretty much all you would need. The neighborhood is comfortable with lots of friendly people and families. We felt very comfortable. We would definitely go back and stay here again!

    Cam responds quickly and will help with whatever you need before and throughout your stay. Thanks so much Cam!

  • Aptly named Funky Modern Space: cute, well stocked character loft in Strathcona. Attention to detail: umbrella in the front hallway, his contact info on the blackboard, a cooler bag in the kitchen and ice packs in the freezer for picnics: why would anyone want to stay in a hotel? Loved the neighbourhood- central, safe,charming. Lots of Buddhist temples, cool atmospheric coffee shops, great gardens and lovely old heritage homes. Cam was very friendly, professional, helpful, and timely. His info sheet on what to do- activities/ restaurants/ sights for young and old is a gold mine of the best of Vancouver. Virtually a cross- section of Van highlights- nearby and within the broader area- for everyone. Clearly Cam is very much dedicated to ensuring that his guests have a positive experience: one could only hope to find a Cam at every Airbnb, and a Funky Modern Space in every city. Grand merci Cam!

  • I had a really great first time in Vancouver thanks in large part to staying at Cam and Caylee's place. The location was very accessible for me after taking the train in from Seattle, and it was a great spot for getting around the city—bus stops were nearby in addition to a Sky Train station. Often I would just walk though, and had no problem walking from the place to downtown. There's plenty of great places to eat around the area, in addition to several small grocery stores that had what I needed for when I wanted to cook.

    The apartment was quaint and was very clean upon my arrival. I would definitely stay here again the next time I happen to be in Vancouver!

  • Cam was a great host; very polite and available for questions. The apartment was very practical : keyless door lock, wifi, shower, many hooks to hold your clothes, thermostats, full kitchen, etc... On top of that, it was located in a beautiful neighbourhood. I recommend staying at this spot !
