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.
Found this place day of. Got the reservation sorted out over text as I drove up to Vancouver. Place was easy to find (nice LED house number outside it) and the inside looked great. Brad was very friendly and chatty. Room was clean and as advertised. Worked great.
His house was so lovely and really close to downtown so that I could easily go to downtown and hang out with my friends. Also, the room which he provided me was bigger than I expected and so warm. I really slept well. If you are coming to Vancouver this place is pretty great. hope we can meet again. Thank you very much.
Brad and Jody are the best hosts ever. They're fun, happy people with a wealth of knowledge about Vancouver, ziplining venues, off-the-beaten path restaurants, and even cutting-edge high tech. Their home offers privacy, convenient street parking with quick access to major thoroughfares, nearby public transportation, and the ease of staying in a quiet neighborhood within minutes of the city center. I look forward to staying with them on my next venture in B.C. and recommend them without hesitation.
My stay with Brad and his family was like coming home. The house was inviting, warm, and comfortable. They are wonderful hosts and I would stay there again if the opportunity arises. The kitchen was easily accessable, the bathroom was clean and nice, and the room / bed was extremely comforting. The location was spot on. Very easy to navigate to points of interests and Brad was more than accomodating with maps, directions, and suggestions for entertainment, dining, and sight seeing. You would be remiss not to stay in this home. The are the best in the world!
Brad was an excellent host. He was quick and detailed with his messages and his home was perfect for a night in Vancouver. There is no doubt I will be looking to book his home in future Vancouver trips. The experience was pleasant and I am pleased to with my choice to stay at his home. I highly recommend it!
My boyfriend and me we stayed with Brad and his family for 5 weeks and we had a very good time there. It does not take long time to get to downtown, highway 1 and there are many asian restaurants and small supermarkets around there. The family is very nice and open minded and we could use everything in the kitchen and the washing machine, but the kitchen was not cleaned very frequently. The room was not that large, but it was enough for 2 persons for some weeks. Brad`s house is a good place to meet other visitors of Vancouver!
We had a wonderfull time in Vancouver. Brad was a great host and we enjoyed the contacts. We could do our laundry and made ourself at home.
We hope we can join Brad as our host on our next Vancouver tour as well.
Brad and Jodi were great hosts. Their house is lovely, clean and modern. I had the large bedroom on the ground level and it suited me perfectly for my week and a half stay in Vancouver. It's about 10 minutes walk from the sky train (really easy to find) which was great for getting into down town. There is a sushi place just down the road too which I loved!
I was sick for a few days and Brad and Jodi even offered me home made soup....really lovely people!
The other people staying in the house were also great, people from everywhere and all walks of life, very interesting to talk to everyone there :) Highly recommend.
we really enjoyed the time we spent in brad´s home !
brad was very friendly when we reached his place. the room was small but fine. although the bathroom was supposed to be shared, we have never seen anybody else using it so there were no problems at all.
brad was very helpful. he recommendet us his favourite restaurants as well as he explained us how to get where we wanted to go.
the room was just a few trainstations away from downtown and therefore a very comfortable alternative to the run-down hostels of the city itself! :)
i can definitely reccomend staying with brad.
