Enjoy the best of both worlds being minutes from downtown Vancouver while living in "MacDonald cottage", which is brimming with history and a tranquil, private outdoor space. Chinatown, the Brewery District and Main Street Science World Skytrain station is at your door step- all with an under 15 minute walk. Olympic Village is also nearby.

Built in 1895, we named this the MacDonald cottage, after Angus MacDonald, an electrician who we believe was the first resident in this cottage.

The space
Our beautiful coach home has been fantastically renovated from the ground up and designed to host our esteemed guests for longer stays. There is a south-facing deck space, a quiet secret garden and also a shared patio as well.

Where you’ll be

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Strathcona is one of this city's oldest neighbourhoods. It features beautifully restored row houses, overflowing flower gardens, and welcoming front porches.

Strathcona grew out of the collection of shacks and small buildings that surrounded the Hastings Mill site, and has a unique mix of people, history, land use, and architecture.

It is a neighbourhood of houses, apartment buildings, and rooming houses where neighbours walk to the corner store, do tai chi in the parks or stroll in the community garden. It is a community that has managed to survive, and thrive, despite constant pressure for change.

The neighbourhood is home to a number of amazing craft breweries including the Strathcona Beer Co and Strange Fellows Brewing.

Close by you have Chinatown to the West and cultural Commercial Drive to the East which both have incredible bars, restaurants, cafes, and local food markets.
