I have a guest room in my place located in Fairview Slopes. It is downtown Vancouver a block from the skytrain and even closer to the B Line express that goes out to UBC or Burnaby.
The place is very centrally located and you'd get the full Vancouver experience staying with me. I'm 2 blocks from the seawall and about 5 blocks from Granville Island. One block away is several box stores and grocery stores.
There are 3 decks, wireless, cable, AppleTV, Wii and I would insist that you make my home yours.
There is only 1 bathroom but I'm cool with sharing if you are. I do have a cat named Ned and i allow smoking outside only. Overall, I'm pretty easy going.
I tend to make dinner every night so would be cool to decide on an all in price and you can help yourself to whatever you like from fridge/pantry.
