The Space

The best neighbourhood in the city! An apartment you will love with a wrap-around patio, BBQ, wood-burning fireplace (for candles in the summer) and all amenities.

Located in the trendy (very hipster) location of Main Street on a quiet corner one block from everything you could possibly want, and minutes away from most Vancouver attractions, including downtown!

This area is known for its independent stores and eclectic feel: little cafes, independent grocery stores, pubs, lounges, great dining, and local clothing and home accessory design stores, vintage and antique shops (even a world-renowned Corset designer).
You are minutes away from Olympic Village, Science World, VanDusen Botanical Gardens, both BC Place and Rogers Arena, and everything downtown.

To get to downtown, it is approximately a $10 cab ride, a 5 minute drive, or an easy bus or walk to the nearest skytrain station.

Master bedroom features a queen size bed with side tables and great reading lamps, and luxury sheets, duvet and various pillows so you can find the right one for you!

Bathroom is small, but complete with Kohler fixtures, marble countertop and lots of room to put your toiletries.

Living area features a wood-burning fireplace, large flat-screen television, PS3, movies, books, and cozy blankets for curling up for an afternoon snooze after a hard day of shopping, skiing, or golfing.

Dining areas includes a table with standard seating for three, but a leaf can be put in the table for seating for six.

A large patio off the living room features a BBQ and patio furniture – this side of the apartment gets morning sun so it (email hidden) for a morning coffee while reading the paper.

Kitchen is fully stocked and includes marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, microwave, fridge with freezer, convection oven, and a dishwasher.

Suite includes:
- In-suite laundry
- Luxury linens and towels
- Wireless internet
- Cable television
- Cordless phone, free local calls
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Instant inflatable mattress to sleep an additional two people (to make a maximum of four people).
- Parking for an additional $10 per night
- BBQ and great patio

Guest Access

Guests have sole access to everything in the apartment.

Interaction with Guests

Generally, I take my cue from the guests. I have provided suggested itineraries for jet-lagged overseas travelers, have answered texts and calls on where the nearest post-office is, and have helped folks find the best restaurants. I have also left guests alone and have simply dropped off the keys and stopped by every week or so to water plants and change the bed if needed. You tell me what works for you!

  • Jocelyn's place is located in a great neighbourhood just off Main Street. The apartment is well appointed with everything you need and it really feels like you are staying at a good friends place who has trusted you with their place. My favourite features where the fire place (which had time to use sadly) and the HUGE ground level patio which makes the place feel more like a house.

    Jocelyn herself is an amazing host, very accommodating and professional and I would highly recommend staying at her apartment if you have an opportunity to do so.

  • Jocelyn's accommodation was perfect. It is a clean, bright, inviting, well maintained suite will all the amenities needed for myself, my husband, and our young daughter. Conveniently close to shops, grocery stores, and the heart of Vancouver. As a person, Jocelyn was lovely...personable, punctual, and easy going. When we return to Vancouver, we'd definitely contact Jocelyn's to see if her place is available.

  • If you want paradise, you cannot miss this stunningly appointed and incredibly comfortable apartment. Close to cafes, restaurants, shops and public transport, we fell in love with it right away. All the conveniences possible for your stay are available with gorgeous outdoor eating area and garden. The kitchen is a dream, laundry unbelievable and the most uptodate bathroom. A wonderfully warm welcome is provided and plenty of parking is all around. Do not miss this one!

  • I had a wonderful stay at Jocelyn's apartment. It was definitely one of my best Airbnb experiences ! The flat, itself, is as bright and lovely as the pictures show. Vancouver and first floor apartments, in general, can be quite dark. Not so, Jocelyn's! She has done a great job at decorating in a way that maximizes light.

    The kitchen is well - equipped, including coffee beans and grinder, and tea, spices, condiments, and oil, as well as plenty of pots and pans and dishes and new appliances. It makes cooking there a dream!

    Her bed is comfortable, the sheets, all cotton. I had great sleeps, despite the fact that Vancouver was experiencing unusually hot weather. The building, too, is quiet.

    Her high - efficiency washer and dryer are the best I have ever used.

    Her living room is cozy and well - equipped with lots of entertainment, that I did not get around to using. Her Internet connection was consistently strong.

    Her outside patio is HUGE and wonderful, full of places to sit, flowers, and herbs, which her guests are free to use.

    The neighbourhood is fabulous. Her block has JJBean coffee shop at one end and the restaurant, Burgoo, at the other. In my opinion, between the two, you don't really need to go anywhere else for all your meals, if you choose to eat out. There are also many other options on that block and in the ones close by. If you want to eat in, there are also plenty of food stores within a few blocks.

    Main Street, in addition to being full of great shops and restaurants, is as central as can be. The #3 bus is frequent and has digital displays as to when the next bus is expected, a nice amenity.

    Jocelyn met me herself when I arrived. She was friendly, very accomodating, and communicative.

    I have nothing negative to say !

  • Jocelyn was an amazing host; so considerate and welcoming. The condo is also a perfect setting for the "home away from home" feeling. Her spot was so clean and is exactly as seen in the photo. It is close enough to downtown by car, but easily accessible by public transport as well. On the whole, host and apartment are amazing!!

  • Perfect in every way. Great host- warm and thoughtful. Wonderful location- we were so glad we didn't stay downtown as this location is lovely. Superb accommodation- spotlessly clean, modern, tasteful decor, great outside space, everything you could possibly need. If all Airbnb's were as good as this I'd never stay in another hotel. Highly recommended.

  • My family stayed in Jocelyn's beautiful home for ten days. It's a ground floor apartment which in Vancouver you might avoid because they tend to be dark, but not Jocelyn's place. There are plenty of windows that let light in even on the grey days. It's centrally located, we brought bikes and could bike pretty much anywhere in the city within 15-20 minutes. Jocelyn was prompt about correspondences and reasonably flexible when we had to change our travel dates.

    June 2013
  • Jocelyn's place is so neat, comfortable and in a wonderful neighborhood. It's easy to park and a short walk to coffee shops, boutiques, grocery store, and restaurants. We had a very busy stay and found Jocelyn's place to be a quiet and cozy haven on those particularly hectic days. Most of all, Jocelyn was a gracious and warm host.

    You will love (email hidden)!

  • Jocelyn is a very nice lady

    I stayed at Jocelyn's condo for two weeks, it (email hidden) to stay, nicely decorated, very clean and has everything you would need.

    I hope to stay there again next time I am in Vancouver.

    Thank you Jocelyn

About
I am a fun loving and easy going girl who moved to Vancouver (email hidden) in the interior of BC. I love to travel and spend a lot of my summer trying to find the best swim spots. I thought while I'm away I would love to lend my place to other avid travellers. I work for a non-profit that works with at-risk young people in Vancouver. I love to give back to my community when I'm not travelling or spending time with loved ones. I picked my apartment because of the great sense of community you get when you're walking up and down Main street. There are a lot of wonderful little stores including one with the best spicy feta dip you could ever have. I love trying local wines, cheeses, and beers, so if that interests you please let me know, I have quite a few suggestions. I also love being a tourist in my own city so if you're looking for fun things to do or the best restaurants to eat at I would be more than happy to compile a list for you. I hope you enjoy my place as much as I do! Happy travels!
