PLEASE BOOK IN ADVANCE. We recommend that you book your stay at least 1 month in advance.
Make your home-base here with us in our brand new home just outside downtown Vancouver – away from the bustle but close to the action! I'm a fellow traveller when the budget allows it, so I understand what its like to be living on the road. We hope to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible.
This is the entire upstairs suite of our brand new home. The home is only a little more than a year old. This rental includes a master bedroom (incl. ensuite bathroom w/ jetted soaker tub), a bedroom with a double bed, and another with a single bed and an optional pull out single bed. The suite can comfortably sleep 6. It also includes a fully furnished living room (fireplace, HD TV, cablevision) and kitchen (fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher). Clean sheets, pillows and towels are provided. Access to a washer & dryer is shared with the suite downstairs. Password protected wireless internet is included in the home and access to city-wide wifi is also provided for up to 2 devices. A network laser printer is also provided.
The standard configuration sleeps 6, but another double bed equipped bedroom can be added (depending on availability and at additional cost) for a total of up to 8 guests. Ask for details and pricing.
There are other rental rooms in the house (as well as ourselves), so be aware that access to the common areas such as the kitchen, main bath, laundry, and access to the laser printer may be shared.

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. If you love asian foods, like pho, sushi, or chinese, you will be in nirvana. There are also some excellent Mexican, Central American, Brazilian, French, 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!
