The Space

** See below for discount**
Your private room comes with it's own private bathroom, all linens, lots of storage and a spectacular view of English Bay and Kitsilano. 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.

*** DISCOUNT ***
**Due to building renovations being done, I am offering a 15% discount on bookings during that period. Most of the renovations are exterior. The only interior renovations will be window replacement which will be done over a short period...currently scheduled in early May.
I will calculate the 15% discount with a "special offer". It is estimated work will be completed sometime in the middle of summer.

Check in and Check out times are somewhat flexible and may be discussed.

Guest Access

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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 of south of here. I have a bicycle (with a helmet) available to you at no charge too.

Other Things to Note

The building is undergoing renovations at this time, so I have allowed a 15% reduction in the rates for the inconvenience. Unfortunately the balcony will not be accessible.

  • Staying with Jeanie was a delight!

    She couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating of me and my little 6-month old. I felt very at ease and comfortable.

  • Jeanie's place was clean, comfortable, and excellently situated to allow me to get to all of the places I wanted to see either by foot or by public transportation. She is generous with her space and her housewares, which saved me a lot of coffee & breakfast money. She also emailed me an excellent list of restaurants and other suggestions of fun things nearby her place. All in all, it would be pleasure to stay with her again during my next trip to Vancouver. Thanks again, Jeanie!

  • Jeanie wasn't at home at the time of my stay but this didn't affect my visit at all. As a stranger to Vancouver it would have been nice to talk to some re where to visit, etc., but this didn't matter as I was meeting a friend who lived there. With no disrespect to Jeanie, I quite liked the freedom this gave me.
    Communication (emails, etc.) with Jeanie were excellent.
    Location and facilities are great and I would certainly stay at Jeanie's again.

  • Wir haben wunderbare Tage in Vancouver bei Janie verbracht. Sie ist eine lebhafte, fröhliche und hilfsbereite Frau. Das Zimmer nett eingerichtet mit allem, was man braucht. Abends kann man auf ihrer Dachterasse die Blumenpracht und den Blick auf den English Bay genießen und die Davie Street ist eine schöne Wohngegend, von wo aus man sogar zu Fuß Downtown erkunden kann.

  • Jeanie's penthouse was perfect for our 4 days in Vancouver. The apt is blessed with a wonderful south-facing view that's priceless. As for the host, Jeanie goes above and beyond. She has a lot of info about the city and offers timely advise and even research. The outdoor patio is perfectly suited for an energizing breakfast or mellow glass of wine, with the sun setting on English Bay.

  • We had a great stay with Jeanie. Jeanie is very friendly and super helpful, and her place was awesome and in the perfect spot with a perfect view and an awesome roof terrace. What a brilliant location! Other than that: great bathroom, lovely room, and beautiful art all over! Jeanie is a very friendly and easy going host. Thank you for having us! We hope to come back soon!

  • My wife and I just finished a three night stay with Jeanie and couldn't have asked for much more. Location is unbeatable and Jeanie's hospitality was top notch. This was our first AirBnB experience, so we were a bit leery about the service. But it was absolutely perfect. Comfy bed, great views of English Bay and walking distance to just about everything. Stay with Jeanie.

    Thank you Ryan... it was lovely to meet you and your wife (oops - I forgot her name - shame on me). Glad to know you liked the Penn Cove mussels. Aren't they spectacular??

About
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.
