The space

If you like color, art, downtown living and you are open to sharing the space, this room might be perfect for you. Your private, single- bed room is very small but relatively comfortable. Attention: This room has no window and you will be sharing the bathroom with me or other guests.
I am glad to help if you need information or tips on how to get around or what to do in Vancouver. I have an extra bike and you are welcome to use it since bicycle paths are great here and you can see a lot just biking around.

I am glad to offer you tea or coffee in the morning, the rest you will have to find in the store downstairs. It is a great Chinese market just below, which offers a big variety of yummy foods including sushi and dumplings. Next to it is an Italian restaurant, Starbucks and other coffee shops just across the street. I have a large balcony where you may find fresh tomatoes, parsley and green peas if you come before I eat them all. You are welcome to cook for yourself in my kitchen and use my spices.

LOCATION: The location is great: just in front of Stadium Sky-train (tube or subway) station, which means you can get here straight from the airport in about 45 minutes and save $40 on one way trip. If you are coming by car, I have a parking space for visitors. If you stay longer than 7 days, there will be a parking fee of $70/month.

AMENITIES: You are welcome to use the indoor pool, sauna, hot-tub, gym, and ping-pong table in the building and there is a large garden outside. The apartment has wireless internet. You can do your laundry using my in-suite washer & dryer, but please read the instructions or ask me what's important. Well, switching the fan on the right of the dryer is.

WHERE TO GO: You will be living 3 minutes away from Gastown, the historic part of Vancouver, where restaurants and bars are open until late. You will be at the gate of wonderful Chinatown and a few minutes walking distance from the business district. You are a 30 minute bus ride away from the mountains or the ferry terminal.

LANGUAGES: If you prefer to communicate in other languages, I also speak French, Polish, Spanish, Romanian, Hungarian, some Russian and German.

I have traveled to Asia, Europe and Africa, but I am always interested in your travel stories. I love meeting people and getting to know them.
If you play guitar, I would love you to play it. I may sing, but I the chances are rather small!

Guest access

You are welcome to use the entire space, except the other bedroom.

This room has no window and you will be sharing the bathroom with me or other guests, if anyone rents the second room.

Great location and great host. Izabella is friendly and helpful to visitors. Can be noisey as the balcony door is kept open due to the apartment not having air con. Otherwise it's great.

Great experience with Iza apartment, located at walking distance to Gastown, Canada Place and Downtown. The room is cute, small but perfect for 1-2 days, very clean. Iza has been a great host, providing the bike to visit the city, a lot of suggestions about places to see and the breakfast at the morning. All ok, suggested!

Izabela's place was perfect. Right on the edge of Chinatown and Gastown, with super easy access to restaurants, as well as the Chinatown-Stadium terminal for public transport. The room is small but perfect for a solo traveller. Izabela was great, check-in was a breeze and she was incredibly helpful giving me suggestions on where to go and how to get there. Thanks Izabela!

Although the room is small it's quite adequate and suited my needs entirely. Her home is beautifully eclectic, showcasing her art and well loved pieces. The view from the balcony is lovely and I've spent a few hours there happily contemplating and soaking in the atmosphere.

Clean, cozy and welcoming, with an added touch of whimsy. Izabella's place is an art-filled and calm respite located right in the middle of the action of downtown Vancouver. Close to Gastown, the waterfront, Chinatown, minutes from the Skytrain, and walkable to everything else, staying here was a great choice. Izabella was supremely helpful and caring, making sure I had everything I needed, sharing Vancouver tips and genuinely inviting me to make her home my own.

I am an artist/interior designer. I traveled a lot and love meeting new people. I really like when people feel at home here in my crowded/whimsy place, play guitar and sing.
