Apartment - Private room · West 4th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6H 3Y8, Canada

The Space


We are an easy-going, friendly couple who love to play outdoors. We can recommend excellent windsurfing, diving, skiing, hiking and biking areas, and we are happy to share our knowledge of local watering holes, restaurants and other fun stuff around the city. Between the two of us, we speak English, French, Polish and a smattering of other languages.
.
We offer a quiet, comfortable bedroom in our two bedroom apartment. You have access to our kitchen, bathroom and laundry if you are staying 6 nights or longer. The bed can be converted to a sofa configuration and is very comfortable. Coffee, tea, are also available.You will be just steps away from Granville Island, close to major transit routes and within walking distance of the Granville Street entertainment district in downtown Vancouver. Enjoy a walk on the seawall, play a game of tennis on the free courts across the street or check out the stores in trendy South Granville. You will be close enough to enjoy all the city has to offer, yet far enough away to get a restful night’s sleep.
.
Our welcoming committee includes an adorable puppy named Cousteau. We're sorry, but our apartment is not family-friendly and we are not able to accommodate guests with children. Inexpensive visitor parking is also available on site. Check-in is between 6pm and 9pm on weekdays and can be flexible if our schedule permits. Check in on weekends is flexible.

  • Ich hatte eine ausgesprochen angenehme Zeit bei Grég und Caro. Das Appartment ist hell und freundlich, zentral gelegen und trotzdem ruhig. Zum Kaffeetrinken und Bummeln in fünf Minuten auf Granville Island, schöne Spazierwege ganz in der Nähe, ausgezeichnete Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel: ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um Vancouver zu entdecken! Ich wurde sehr freundlich aufgenommen und habe mich willkommen gefühlt. Und ich liebe ihren Hund.

  • Nice, nice, nice! Nice People, Greg and Carol were really nice to me, really helpful in anything I requested and very friendly. Nice localization, in a good neighbourhood, and really close to the center. Nice appartment: very confortable room and bed. Nice dog: their dog Custeau is a treasure; it's great to get home and be received by the happiness of Custeau!

  • Greg and Caro are a lovely couple and the apartment is warm and cosy, with a great view and well situated for getting around by foot or on the buses. The room allows for privacy but Greg and Caro are also up for a bit of a chat and were full of great advice about Vancouver! Cousteau, the dog, is super friendly and will make you feel very welcome and loved. Staying with Greg and Caro definitely helped make my Vancouver stay awesome.

  • Greg and Caro are lovely hosts - very easygoing and it was great to have a home away from home while I took a training nearby.

  • My stay at Grég's & Caro's was extremely agreeable: Very nice clean room in a nice apartment, as depicted on the photos. Very conveniently located: next to Granville Island with the superb Public Market, Bars and Restos; also near the Granville Bridge to downtown - a walk I recommend highly! Also the Skytrain (airport-connection) is near by. The communication before my stay was very uncomcplicated as the stay itself and I really felt welcome!

  • I stayed at their home since I was moving to Vancouver from Italy. I enjoyed and felt very comfortable at Greg and Caro's home. They are a beautiful couple, that make me feel at home. Moreover who stole my heart was Cousteau, the puppy. He is amazing and great companionship. When I got home tired, he changed the day with his wagging tail. Wrapping up an excellent experience, I recommend them a 200%. I hope to see you someday, specially Cousteau

  • J'ai passé un super séjour chez Grég & Caro !!!! Ils ont été très accueillant et mon beaucoup aidé pour mon installation a Vancouver.
    Ils m'ont donné de très bons conseils de visite, d'activité ou de resto (mmmmm le burger de Granville Island... un must !!!).
    Je vous conseille grandement un séjour chez eux. L'appartement est propre, confortable et très bien situé. Tout peut se faire a pied de chez eux (downtown, granville, main, kits...)

    ps : Même si vous n'avez pas l'habitude des chiens (comme c’était le cas pour moi), n'ayez aucune crainte, je n'ai jamais vu un chien aussi adorable que le leur.

    I had a great experience with my stay with Greg & Caro !!!! They have been very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is very well located. 5min away from Granville Island and within walking distance from almost all the place to see in Vancouver : downtown, kits, main street, commercial street...
    I will definitively will keep in touch with them!!!! I warmly recommend the place.

  • Granville Island Getaway is a great value. Greg and Caro are excellent hosts, and offered an enjoyable stay.

    Custof the family dog is adorable!

  • Greg and Caro were very friendly and easy to talk to. Recommended heading up to Grouse Mountain which was fantastic. Place was so close to Granville Island and super convenient parking. Their puppy Cousteau was adorable and very well behaved. Would highly recommend as a quiet break from downtown while still being close.

About
We are a young couple in our late twenties/early thirties. We speak several languages between the two of us, including French and Polish. We are classic weekend warriors - in the summer we are windsurfing fanatics but we also bike, play tennis, SUP, skate and ski in the winter. We have great knowledge of local spots and other fun activities and are happy to share it! We are both originally European, which makes us a pair of foodies. We love a good wine with some aged cheese and a plate of charcutrie.
