Located a mere 4 minutes walk from your choice of beaches at English Bay, it is also a 2 minute walk to Safeway, London Drugs and the Liquor Store - not to mention numerous restaurants of a variety of nationalities. Davie Village is just up the street. The Vancouver Art Gallery is a 20 minute walk or a quick bus ride. This is your home away from home with all the comforts including a kitchen, dining area, living room, in suite laundry. The room has its own cable TV, wireless, desk, chest of drawers and closet and a very comfortable double bed where you can gaze at the beautiful view while relaxing.
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.
