About This Listing
A very nice and quiet room, in the very friendly fairview neighbourhood, walk around everywhere and enjoy all the goodies Vancouver has to offer.
We are a cool and relaxed couple with an even cooler puppy!
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(including a space in the fridge), bathroom and laundry if you are staying 6 nights or longer. The bed is very comfortable and all the bedding plus a towel is provided. 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.

We loved how relaxed our stay felt. Greg, Caro and Cousteau were easy hosts to stay with. Cousteau welcomed us with tail wagging. Greg made our trip memorable by going out of his way to help us avoid getting our car towed and Caroline made it over the top by suggesting a extraordinary and delicious Indian restaurant for dinner. We highly recommend staying here!
Thank you Greg and Carol. I had a nice time here. Staying here help me a lot during this first week in Vancouver. Also, I enjoyed the company of your BIG BIG puppy.
Petit séjour très agréable en compagnie de Grég & Caro.
Appartement idéalement situé avec vue sur False Creek : proche Granville Island et des autres quartiers de Vancouver à pied, en bus ou en métro (aéroport ou Victoria).
Lieu propre et agréable. Profiter du balcon et de sa vue.
It was lovely staying with Caro & Greg. Easy-going, clean, super cute pooch. Great location- close to Granville Island, Kits Beach, food/shopping/sea wall trails. Walking distance to the Canada Line. Communication was quick, arrival & departure also piece of cake.
Greg and Caro were very nice from the start, very friendly and helpful at telling me how to get around Vancouver. Their dog is super friendly, Cousteau. The place is very well located and the room super quiet. I had not had such a good night sleep in ages! I really enjoyed my stay with Greg and Caro. Thank you guys.
Caroline and Greg are wonderful hosts and helped me get around the area and gave me tips for my pending move to Vancouver. I felt welcome during my stay and I enjoyed our dialogue about movies, jobs and the city. Their place is within walking distance of Granville Island, the centre of the city (via Granville Bridge) and there is plenty to do around Broadway and Granville Island. Greg, Caroline, thank you for hosting me and I am sure that in the near future we will meet again as I endeavour to make Vancouver my new home.
Estuvimos una semana con Greg y Caro y todo fue genial, son gente muy acogedora y simpática, hasta nos invitaron a una BBQ con ellos! Su perro puede intimidar un poco al principio pero enseguida nos dimos cuenta de que es encantador y cariñoso.
Gracias Greg y Caro por ser tan buenos anfitriones! We won't leave Vancouver without tasting Greg's Bread'n'Cheese!

About the Host, Grég & Caro
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.
