Hop skip and a jump from Jericho Beach... I'm offering a beautifully appointed room of your own - boasting a cozy single bed in the top floor of a rambling old character house; which is artfully decorated; fun; and available for short / long term stays.
Perfect accommodation for students at UBC; and people visiting the city.
There is a full kitchen and you will have access to all of the tools of the trade. You're welcome to raid my spice cabinet and other sundry items, (including my massive collection of herbal tea!) but I would ask that you provide the majority of your own groceries - i will provide space for you to store things if you plan to stay awhile! Mi casa is su casa!
This house is located in one of Vancouver's oldest established neighborhoods, in the heart of the "Westside" - on the outskirts of Kitsilano - chok-a-blok full of 100 year old mansions and tree-lined streets... did I mention we're right across the street from the beach?
I have a wealth of knowledge about this gorgeous city, secret beaches, the hottest up and coming restaurants of every variety, places to go... etc. etc. Just ask!
We have wi-fi and laundry and a dishwasher for your comfort!
I also have a vintage ladies' 10 speed Nishiki road-bike that I'd happily lend you to commute or tour around the city. The house is located close to bus routes, which will easily get you to UBC or downtown; and they run extremely frequently.
Staying at Bonnies place was perfect. Bonnie is a wonderful host, good to talk with, outgoing and always very helpful. The Place is good to get around Vancouver and you're directly at the beach! The room may be small, but it offers the most impressive storage for all your belongings and you're free to use the living room as well. I had a great time staying there and would definitely recommend this place.
I had a great stay here! I lived at Bonnie's for three months while affiliated with UBC, and found the house very conveniently located for my purposes, as well as in a beautiful spot close to the beach and seaside bicycle route. The room is cozy, clean, boasts cute decor, and has a surprising amount of drawer space for its size. Best of all, Bonnie is a wonderful host -- kind, thoughtful, helpful, interesting to talk to, and went way above the call of duty (for instance, letting me stay at the house while passing through Vancouver after my booking was over, and letting me continue to store my stuff there while taking shorter trips). Plus, Bonnie's dog, Azzy, is adorable and hilarious. Highly recommended!
Bonnie was the perfect host - welcoming, friendly, relaxed and flexible. .Also a really interesting person to speak with and very knowledgable about Vancouver. Had a fantastic time staying here. A lovely house in a perfect location-very short walk to bus route to UBC and downtown, a block from the beach, beautiful neighbourhood just to walk around. Shops, parks and bars close by. All amenities provided, great wifi connection etc. I could not recommend House of Yin more highly and would most certainly stay here again anytime I was in Vancouver.
Bonnie was a great host, very friendly and always willing to help. Her house is very clean and so are all the linens provided. I didn't have any sorts of problem with her and I would strongly recommend her.
Ich habe mich bei Bonnie pudelwohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist total gemütlich, die haarige Türklingel liebenswert und verspielt und Bonnie ist eine total unkomplizierte, großzügige und fröhliche Gastgeberin. Die Lage der Wohnung ist genial. In mehr oder wenigen Minuten gibt es Strand satt, in Downtown ist man in ca. 20 Min. Sushi in der Nachbarschaft gibt es satt und lecker - und einen Bäcker mit Vollkornbrot!! Ecke Alma Street/ 4th Avenue.
Ich habe meinen Aufenthalt sehr genossen!!
Staying with Bonnie truly felt like we were at the House of Yin! I was visiting Vancouver for the first time to attend my friend's wedding but otherwise didn't know anyone and didn't have a place to stay. The first thing that struck me about Bonnie was how she helped me be at ease with the process was and how she was so accommodating, even with my unclear dates.
I felt so relaxed and un-rushed the entire time, her place felt like my place at the end of the day. She is considerate, provides resources to the city, and very intuitive about what makes others comfortable. I even used her bike to learn the neighborhood. Kitsilano Beach, Kitsilano Pool, Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks are easily accessible. I also visited Wreck Beach, UBC and did yoga.
Her place is in a great neighborhood, for walking, for the views of the water and mountains, for gawking at houses, and for feeling safe. She keeps it very clean and our schedules never conflicted for the bathroom or kitchen. Bonnie's open and relaxed attitude really allowed me to feel okay coming and going at my leisure. We clicked well but I have a feeling she could make most anyone feel at ease.
Being about 4 minutes' walk to a bus stop meant the entire city was accessible.
After my first experience with airbnb.com with Bonnie and her dog Az, I feel inspired to travel more (to find more Bonnies) and perhaps host travelers as well. It really personalizes the experience, especially if traveling alone.
Amazing place. Bonnie's house is awesome, with everything that you need to be completely comfortable while exploring Vancouver. It's located in a brilliant spot - close to the beach but also close to public transport and the main drags of Kits (plus the view from the kitchen is great) which makes getting around really easy. The room is spacious and comfortable and most importantly, Bonnie is a wonderful host. She is really friendly, generous and accommodating. A fantastic place to stay, can't recommend it highly enough!
Absolutely wonderful host! Bonnie made me feel right at home the moment I came to stay for an extended period. The views from the kitchen are to die for. The place has all the charm and character one would wish for in Jerrico/ Kitsilano. The beach is literally 2 mins away... Love the old fashioned bathtub! Stainglass windows through the bedroom window are cute. Bonnie likes teas - so if you are coming from far away (hint hint!). :D
Bonnie was very helpful with my booking and my arrival time which changed several times. I really appreciated her flexibility. The home is lovely with lots of interesting art and colours. The room was simple and yet the linens were luxurious and it was clean and bright. You are a three block walk to beach and about 5 blocks to groceries and the fourth ave area. The kitchen has everything you need and Bonnie made some space for me in the cupboard. I really enjoyed their dog. Although I hardly saw Bonnie or her daughter, they were welcoming when I did see them. Thanks for the stay!
Bonnie is a great person with a great house! The house has a great private room with every sort of bonus, like a washing machine, iron and dishwasher, which you would want whilst on your travels. It is close to transport that will take you to downtown or wherever. It was an absolute pleasure to stay with Bonnie and I would highly recommend anyone planning to stay in Vancouver consider staying with Bonnie. She was top banana’s!
