The space
** Due to Covid-19, only 2 guest are permitted in the Airbnb to limit the risk of exposure. Please be respectful and do not have visitors **

This Guest suite is located next to my house and is 1 of 2 Airbnbs.

The suite is our guest room with it's own front entrance, bedroom and bathroom.

The space is private and is not shared with anyone else however there are shared walls so noise level is moderate. A white noise machine is available by the bedside table.

This suite has its own entrance with wide French doors that open out to a gated patio. The lockbox is located right by the door for an easy and convenient check in-check out process.

The room consist of a comfy Queen bed, bench dining table/workspace, built in closet space, TV, mini fridge, microwave, iron and board.

Please note: There is NO kitchen; it is a hotel style room.

The bathroom is spacious and consist of a shower (we are eco friendly so the water pressure is mild with a rainfall showerhead), vanity and toilet. Essentials like shampoo/conditioner, body wash and hand wash is complimentary for guest. We also supply a hair dryer which is located inside the vanity draw and an iron/iron board in the cupboard.

One parking spot is available on my driveway (which is next to the entrance of the suite).

Professional cleaners are used to clean the guest house after bookings. All bedding and linens are washed for every reservation and are also dry-cleaned on a regular basis as well. I have two babies so cleanliness is one of the most important things I look into when I'm searching for accommodation for my family, therefore I make sure our guest home is sparkling clean for all guest!

WiFi is available throughout the studio.


Please note: temperature can not be controlled in this unit.

We have a heat/pump system installed for the entire house and is set to room temperature, ranging from 68-75 fahrenheit so the air-conditioning will turn on if it detects a room is too hot or too cold. If the temperature is not to your liking, vents can be closed and additional fans and heaters are in the unit.

There is Costco's famous Woozoo Fan available in the unit if you need the room to be cooler or a Honeywell Oil Heater in Winter.

Check IN is anytime after 3pm
Check OUT 11am
There is a section in the Airbnb app that allow guest to request an early check in before 3pm but this is a flaw in the system as Host do not get this notification and may not be able to accommodate this due to cleaning, maintenance and current guest checking out.
Any requests to check in outside of the standard times listed need to be communicated and confirmed ahead of time. Requesting a different check in through the app does not notify the host and may not be able to be accommodated, so please seek confirmation via messenger
