You'll be sharing the apartment with me and I'm very accustomed to having people stay as I've been hosting roommates for 20 years. You'll have your privacy and your built in guide to help you sort out logistics of your visit should you need any direction. I also offer a bicycle for you to get around should you choose to use it. Vancouver is made for cycling.
There is a bus stop about 40 paces from the front door of the building and the Translink (bus) system is very good.
Check in and Check out times are somewhat flexible and may be discussed.
Guests will have access to the living room, dining area, kitchen and their own private bathroom & bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
Good mornings and the odd cup of tea and a chat now and then. I will be present for your stay unless I happen to go out of town to visit someone which I've often done in the past.
The West End is a friendly neighbourhood with a very eclectic mix of people. There is lots of shopping, coffee shops and restaurants very nearby. Movie theaters, galleries and retail stores are about a 15 minute walk from here.
There is a bus stop just a 1/4 block from the front door. Granville Island (it has a big public market and art school, theater and restaurants) is a 10 minute walk and a short "boom boat" ride away. There are beaches 10 minutes walk either west or south of here. I have a bicycle (with a helmet) available to you at no charge too.
Please ask if you would like to use the land line.
Lock front door when coming and going.
Take care of the bicycle when you are using it - you are responsible for it as if it is your own. Replacement value is approximately $400
Hold on to your set of keys. Replacement value is $200
Feel free to have guests over for visits but no sleep overs please without discussing it with me.
Please clean up after yourself when using the kitchen.
Jeannie was very welcoming & staying in her apartment was perfect for me. The location of the apartment is excellent, 5 mins from English Bay & the interesting West End which has a good array of shops/restaurants in Davies & Dedman St & it is easily possible to walk downtown in 15 mins. The room was clean, with a very comfortable bed & a wonderful view. Jeannie had supplied water in the room as well as breakfast for the first morning. The private bathroom was also clean & very adequate.
She's really nice woman. Home was really clear and she was friendly!
Jeanie was a great host! She had water and apples in our room when we arrived and the room was perfect. Bed was comfortable and the view was stunning! Jeanie also had really nice parfait breakfast and nice tea for us. The private bathroom was a nice hot shower after a long day touring. She was very helpful in giving us places to see. She is very warm and pleasant to have a conversation with. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to a friend. Perfect location to walking distance to great shops and restaurants. Thanks again jeanie!!!
Jeanie is a great host. She leaves her guests a lot of privacy and is straightforward. If you have a question she will be glad to help you with it. Furthermore the apartment is very nice and comfortable providing everything the description is promising. The location of the apartment is very central and perfect for discovering the city, that's a great advantage. The neighbourhood is rich of many good restaurants and shops.
I highly recommend a stay with Jeanie in Vancouver.
We had a fantastic time staying with Jeanie. She was really welcoming and had plenty of suggestions for places to go. Jeanie wasn't around when we arrived byt went out of her way to make sure we got the keys and left juice and cinnamon buns, which were very welcome after getting off the plane! She also left a map with suggestions of nearby places to eat, which was perfect as we were hungry but completely jet-lagged! The location is brilliant, just 5 minutes from the beach and within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to visit. Jeanie was a brilliant host and the room was just what we needed for the two of us, with our own bathroom. We would definitely stay with Jeanie again!
We stayed with Jeanie on two occasions during our trip, I have left our comments under our other visit, but in summary, we would highly recommend staying with Jeanie!
Jeanie hat uns sehr gastfreundlich aufgenommen. Wir fühlten uns sofort zu Hause und konnten unseren Aufenthalt in vollen Zügen geniessen. Leider fanden während unserem Aufenthalt Renovierungsarbeiten statt, Jeanie war aber sehr bemüht, dass wir uns so wohl wie möglich fühlten. Ich genoss auch sehr die Ausflüge, welche wir miteinander unternommen haben. :-)
I am an original Vancouverite. I love the city of Vancouver and my home. I've been renting my spare room with its own private bathroom for years. I began using the Airbnb service in August 2011. I enjoy hosting and will be as helpful as I can if you have questions about the city. I spent a number of years working in the B.C. film, TV, commercial and photography business and am currently working occasionally as a personal assistant.
One motto I repeatedly say to myself is "keep it simple" and that's the way I attempt to live my life.
See you soon I hope.
