About this listing
Perfect for musicians and artists the Green Couch Head Quarters is our bright, creative and colorful video production company live work space.
This two story dwelling is an office upstairs and a two bedroom downstairs. Your private room is warm and welcoming. It includes a solarium space (aka our artist lounge) and a shared newly renovated bathroom with a beautiful epic double shower.
Situated in the quiet Fairview neighborhood a block from the sea wall. We are within walking distance of Granville Island, Kits Beach, 4th ave, Broadway street, the Skytrain, main bus lines and downtown. We are also a 20 min transit ride to Commercial Drive, UBC, Wreck Beach and pretty much anywhere you want to go.
We are hippies at heart. Half Venezuelan Canadian and half retired tour guide. We speak Spanish and are happy to give insight into great local spots, directions and suggestions of restaurants and attractions to see.
We work from home so appreciate guests who can entertain themselves during the day.
We are a young couple. We live a very green, liberal and creative lifestyle. Our schedules vary and we may have to get up early in the morning or arrive home very late at night.
We are a dog friendly house with one cute cockapoo of our own. Georgio is non shedding, very well trained and the best part of our place!
Due to allergies we can not accept guests with large shedding dogs.
Please Check out our passion project!
Please don't invite large groups of friends over late at night.
Please don't smoke cigarets in the house.
Please don't leave dirty clothes all over the floor.
Please don't feed Georgio anything without asking.
Please clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen.
We are happy to share some cooking supplies but please ask before using any of our personal food.
Michy+Jon(+Giorgio!) were very friendly. As soon as I arrived they proposed me to have a walk up to kitsilano beach, so nice with a sunny weather and after a long flight. They were also very helpful to give advices to find good restaurants and nice places to visit. The place is very close to a bus stop (time to reach vancouver convention centre with bus+skytrain is no more than 15 minutes) even if bus frequency is not the best (about every 15-20 minutes). Initially I was looking for a downtown location but the apartment is well situated (close to kitsilano seawater outdoor pool, outside of any downtown jungle) and at 5 minutes walking to grandville island (a must in vancouver). I definitively recommend the place!
Jon, Michy and Giorgio are great hosts and cool artists - check out their homepage and it was a pleasure to stay at their place. The place is perfectly located on False Creek. I love the bathroom with the great shower!
Very well located apartment. Walking distance to shops and Granville Island. The room was nice and cozy, the shower is great and the kitchen is fully equipped. Michy and Jon are great hosts, really helpful and with a lot of local knowledge. During my stay there were really busy with their work and couldn't hang out much, but we had a good fun night playing a board game (something between Risk and Monopoly).
I did really have a good time and would definitely recommend it to my friends and stay there again.
This was a really nice place to stay. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful in giving suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The space was clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again!
Great time with Michi, Jon and Giorgio :)
They are very helpful and always in a good mood! Thanks for everything
We spent our first night in Canada at Michy, Jon and Giorgio's and felt very welcome. We didn't know the exact time of arrival but everything worked perfectly. The conversations with the 2,5 people of the house was nice and easy though we were really tired.
Close to the flat there is free parking for two hours but only up to 6 pm so we were able to leave the car for the night. From the apartment you can easily walk down Granville Island where we had dinner that evening. Also close by there is a cafe where you can have a first breakfast.
Everything was clean and the bathroom was quite comfortable. The only problem for us was locking the front door as we didn't understand the system. It was a coincidence that we were able to lock it when we went to have (website hidden)-opening was no problem though.
Sorry for sneaking out in the morning but as a result of the jet lag we weren't able to go on sleeping ;-)
The reservation was canceled 25 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
