House rules
This place isn’t suitable for infants (0–2 yrs) and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
If you want a truly as-the-locals-live experience, come stay in this cozy, mid-century inspired home-away-from-home in one of the best locations in the city, halfway between, the bohemian Commercial Drive and Hastings Sunrise neighbourhoods. Great coffee, eats, grocery shopping, and parks are blocks away, as are major bus routes. Bonus: in the spring, this quiet, cherry tree-lined street erupts in pink blossoms, which fall as magical snow. See GUEST ACCESS for those curious about QUARANTINING.

The space
A very comfy bed and a cozy sofa and TV/lounging area, with a vintage vibe, means you're staying in a unique space rather than non-descript hotel, while having all of the privacy and amenities that a hotel offers. Guests can choose a private experience - there is a mini-fridge, microwave, and hot plate in the guest suite or you can pop upstairs to have full access to the kitchen (let me know which you have in mind), and to likely meet Norm (the puppy!), who loves curling up next to his favourite heater. See GUEST ACCESS description for those curious about quarantining here.

Guest access
A lot of folks are understandably curious if they can quarantine in the suite. In principle, I am okay with that. However, access to the full kitchen upstairs, in the shared area, won't be possible. As well, access to the washer and dryer will only be possible at a scheduled time, as this is also in a shared area. If you can manage with a mini-fridge, microwave, hot plate, one pot, and one pan, and some basic cooking utensils, and with doing the dishes in the bathroom sink (not ideal!), then you are welcome to use the space for this purpose. I ask that you respect provincial guidelines about having food and grocery delivery arranged and limit your comings and goings from the suite.

Commercial Drive is an iconic East Van neighbourhood, historically known as Little Italy, and it has all of the diversity and eclecticism you could ask for. Hastings Sunrise is populated with the best Vietnamese food in town and has great East Asian grocers. Boutique shopping and coffee shops abound in both neighbourhoods. I'm also conveniently located near (but well out of earshot to) the highway for access to the North Shore and the Sea-to-Sky for those wanting an urban home base for outdoors excursions. The house is tucked into leafy, family friendly streets, where you'll sleep in peace.

During your stay
The suite is set up to be private if preferred, but if you need access to a full kitchen or simply want to come and meet Norm and I upstairs for local tips or for help in planning an outdoor excursion, we're very friendly and happy to help.
