We are located a short distance from downtown Vancouver in the much quieter Cedar Cottage community (about 10 minutes by car). There is plenty of free street parking around the house.
The area around the house is one of the cheapest parts of the city to eat out in. If you love asian foods, like pho, sushi, or chinese, you will be in nirvana. There are also some excellent Mexican, Central American, and even Portugese restaurants close by.
There is a new modern drug store located 1/2 a block away that sells almost anything you may need from packaged food items, to toiletries, magazines, medicine, and electronics.
Our home is at the intersection of many transit options, so getting around is very convenient. There are two Skytrain stations within walking distance (less than a 10 minute walk). Or jump on one of several nearby buses that connect with the Skytrain or take them directly to downtown, Stanley Park, UBC, Metrotown, Richmond, YVR Airport, or North Vancouver. Even Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge are easily accessible by transit. Commercial Drive and Main Street (~5-10 mins away) are both close by and full of trendy shops, restaurants and hipster hangouts.
My partner and I live here along with her curious and friendly son (6 years old). We really enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their travels, so don't be shy. There is usually one or two other guests in the house as well, which can be a great source of information if you compare stories. We will mostly provide you with privacy but if you have any questions or need assistance there is almost always someone around, please don't hesitate to ask.
If the dates you want are available, book immediately to avoid losing your priority! You don't need to ask if the dates are available – we'll let you know if there is any conflict. If the dates you want show up as not available, please check with us as there are often cancellations and other options that the calendar does not show.
Thank–you for your interest, and Happy Travels!

Brad was very accommodating considering I needed a place to rent for a week. He was help with finding a good route taking the bus or the sky train to get around. The bus stop and sky train was in walking distance. The room was cozy and just right for me.
Brad is a good person and helpful. I recommend to stay with him in the upper floor.
The room was not very big, but perfect if you only spend the nights in. There was everything I needed. Train- und busstations are near to the house and you are in town in some minutes. Had a gread stay, and would definitely come again to Brad's home!
Brad was so kind with us, he even spent nearly 2h with us the first day explaining lots of useful info about the city and the neighbourhood. His house is so well connected by public transport to the main spots in the city and we found this very useful and comfortable.
Brad is a friendly and experienced host who made us feel welcomed in his household. He was quite thoughtful about making sure we had everything we needed, even giving us a map of the nearby restaurants and services. Thanks for the stay, Brad!
We stayed 5 nights at Brad's place. Brad is a really nice guy, he helped us out a lot and gave good tips for exploring Vancouver. We lived together with his wife and son and shared living room and kitchen with them as well as a lot of other guests. The atmosphere was friendly however crashing in Brads family life gave us sometimes a disturbing feeling so that we preferred to stay outside most of the time.
Brad's place was very new and modern with a comfy bed and reasonable spacing. We really enjoyed our stay for the most part - Brad and his family were friendly and very respectful of us especially considering we were suffering terrible jetlag. There were a couple others staying in his place at the same time as us in other rooms - they were very friendly and courteous as well with no troubles at all for the shared washroom. The only real problem was that the walls were a bit thin - but since everyone was respectful of each other's privacy, this wasn't ever a problem.
I stayed at Brad's place for 3 nights. I haven't talk much with them during the stay but I have a good shirt chat with Brad when I check out. The place have a good location, bus stop and foods are just on a footstep, I took many public transport this time and feel I can go everywhere for this place within 30 mins ! I can get chick in the midnight within a minute walk as well! My room is suitable for single person, I will try the other one on the same floor in my next Vancouver trip. That is with a private bathroom! Thanks Brad and I do enjoy the stay there and hope to be there again soon!
I stayed with Brad and his family for 8 nights. It was my first airbnb experience and I liked it. Though was a bit anxious when I was asked to check in (website hidden) Brad, it was hazzle free and left a bit adventurous too.
The room was cozy and comfortable. Though the place was fully occupied during my stay, I did not have any clash for the.washroom. The house is easily accessiable by skytrain or bus to the city. The only drawback was there was no lock to.the door of the room. However, didn't feel unsafe due to that. Overall nice experience and I recommend this place.
I really enjoyed staying with Brad and his family. Their house is full of people but you hardly ever see them as it is big enough and has separate WCs. Very convenient location and good transport links. The area is wonderful too; surrounded by lovely parks and restaurants. My room was clean and cosy. Although the lock doesn't work, the house offers a lot of safety to not need one. Brad was very helpful explaining things and offering help when needed. Would highly recommend it for others and will certainly go back myself when next in Vancouver.
