About This Listing
Cozy, comfortable, and quiet suite with excellent neighbours in a super cool hood. Shops, cafes and hip bars nearby such as a Twin Peaks themed bar called Black Lodge. All this is close by without encroaching on your restful stay in the apartment.
This one-bedroom apartment is in the heart of east Vancouver in a quiet neighborhood. It has a full bathroom with tub as well as a queen sized bed, gas fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. There is also high-speed wireless internet. There is a coin laundromat about a two-minute walk away (no laundry facilities in the actual unit).
You can expect a relaxed, comfortable stay with friendly, quiet neighbors. This is an excellent, vibrant neighborhood, perfect for walks and there's even a park very close by. As well, it's only a short bus or bike ride to downtown, Commercial Drive area or other parts of the city.
The apartment is also about a ten minute walk to the vibrant Main St. area which offers a range of unique, independent stores and neighborhood bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Also, there is a row of shops and restaurants just off Fraser St. (5 mins away) that includes a popular bistro called Les Faux Bourgeois and a new, hip little cafe called Matchstick.
There is a bus stop very close by with a regular run to downtown (#8 Fraser) as well as plenty of accessible, bike friendly streets, which will take you to all quadrants of the city. Free street parking is also available if you need it.
Access to full suite as described. Wi-fi included.
Interaction with Guests
I'd say not much. I'm always reachable of course via cell and email.
This is definitely a thriving neighbourhood with some funky restaurants and cafes very close by. Also, you're extremely close to Main Street (7 minute walk) which has lots to offer as well in terms of independent shops and restaurants. This is an east Vancouver neighbourhood for sure and feels culturally and artistically vibrant.
Yes! The bus stop is very close and there you can catch the #8 Fraser which will take you downtown or to other convenient locations to make connections.
All the tenants in this house (one suite above and one in front) are extremely considerate and respectful--all I ask is that you do the same.
Tariq is an excellent host! He was quick in responding to questions and checkin/checkout was very easy. When I arrived he was very welcoming and went out of his way to show me around. His apartment is in a convenient location next to a bus route to downtown and also within walking distance from Main Street. I would definitely stay at Tariq's place again on a return trip to Vancouver.
Tariq was super nice and communicative, even when I reach out at midnight on the night his graduation he got back to me and help me sort things out. His place is a small and comfy space. Perfect for what I was looking for to rest on my last night in Vancouver. And the location was very convenient close to Commercial ave and Main St.
