About this listing
This cozy room will make you feel at home. We are right off Commercial Drive, what many consider to be the *best* neighbourhood in Vancouver, and just 3 blocks from the sky train station, 1-4 stops to downtown and one simple transfer for the airport.
This cozy room will make you feel at home. We are right off Commercial Drive, what many consider to be the *best* neighbourhood in Vancouver, and just 3 blocks from the sky train station (1-4 stops to downtown and one simple transfer for the airport), all amenities such as shoppers, safeway, starbucks (we'll tell you about the independent, better places though!;), beautiful Trout Lake (swimming, running, dog beach, community centre, picnic-ing) and much *much* more. You really couldn't be much more central. We are a fun, little family (kiddies 6+11 and one on the way) and love to host. Breaky is included, if you're staying under 2 weeks; I'll have the goods ready for you to prepare yourself. Just let me know if you have special requirements. We have a very friendly older cat, who is short haired and a minimal shedder, an old wood burning stove, wifi, parking, a lovely, covered patio, laundry… Our house is old and charming. The first thing most people say upon arriving is that it's so cozy and reminds them of some home from childhood:) We're happy to point you to the best restaurants and the best coffee in this hood. The room has a twin bed and is ideally suitable for one person, but if you're cozy sharing a twin with your human, two are welcome at a small extra fee, for a stay of under 2 weeks. (There are 4 of us already!) If you had a kid in tow (our kids would *not* mind this), I'm happy to throw down a foamy or provide a playpen. It'll be tight! But we could make it happen. I'd also very likely be able to hook you up with any baby gear for your stay (car seat/stroller etc..) You are totally welcome to our kitchen and living area. We are a fun, open, silly crew, welcome people of all kinds and we'd be happy to have you. We're pretty certain... you're gonna love your stay:)

Interaction with Guests
We love to hang out with our guests, but will never encroach on your space:)
We are half a block off of Commercial Drive, where you will find food from handfuls of countries, the best coffee, pubs, trendy shops, festivals, parks galore, a library, 2 community centres with pool/ice rink/gym, and pretty much everything else you could ever need. The busiest sky train hub in Vancouver is 3 blocks away and will connect you to anywhere you need to go, including downtown (only a few mins away) and the airport.
Other Things to Note
We will be having a baby (at home-not the 1st time;) towards the last half of november. If you're home when the party starts, you can always head out or stay cozied up in your room. But a fair warning is obviously required! :)
No smoking, drugs or crazytown drinking. No guests. Have a blast, just don't bring it back here:)
We had a very good Time! Shannon's home is Cosy and close to the skytrain which Takes you downtown quickly.
This was my very first Airbnb encounter and I'm glad I've done my research because these guys are exactly what everyone said they would be! The room is clean and cozy, perfect for someone traveling alone, and is conveniently located closer to the entrance (when getting in late, I didn't have to worry about walking through an entire house and possibly waking anyone up). Bathroom and shower are shared, but there was never a moment of inconvenience - so not to worry.
Shannon and Innis have made my stay super comfortable and chill, it's a shame I was so busy that I barely got to spend any time with them. They are very welcoming and accommodating, giving advise where to go, what to do, offering fruit and coffee daily and giving you a hair dryer when you realize you've forgotten yours :) oh, and the kids are absolutely adorable and so well behaved.
The location is great, super close to almost everywhere you want to go in the city, with Sky train and bus stops being a 3-5 minute walk.
I thoroughly enjoyed the stay and whenever in Vancouver by myself, I will always book with these guys, if available.
Thank you for making it such a breeze!
Although I only spent one night Shannon and her family were lovely and welcoming and you can tell they are a happy and sociable bunch who enjoy hosting guests. The house has a lot of character and I imagine a long term stay would be very comfortable and enjoyable. The room has more than enough space for one person and the location is fantastic - a few minutes walk from the train or bus downtown and right next to Commercial Drive for some great shopping, coffee, food... Overall, a great (but short) stay. Thank you for having me!
I only stayed one night with Shannon and her family, but was made to feel very at home, we had a nice meal and the next day we did some jamming on the piano with her two great kids. Room is very nice, comfy bed, very quiet at night, and she even had a fruit platter out for the guest - bnbs vary a lot, and this was definitely the most 'home from home' and friendliest one I've been at, thanks Shannon!
Lovely! In every way possible. The house is gorgeous, super close to the sky train and commercial drive (my favorite Vancouver neighborhood). Bed was comfy and warm and while I wasn't there long the hosts seem lovely. They were totally ok with my late arrival and early departure. Was greeted by a friendly kitty. Highly recommend.
My experience at Shannon's was exactly what I hoped for. It was easy for me to get in even though I arrived very late at night. Shannon was a wonderful host and the house and room are exactly as promised - comfortable and cozy. The location is ideal for someone looking to explore the city as it is close to many shops and restaurants but is also close to public transportation to get anywhere you want to go, including the airport. I most certainly would stay there again.
Beautiful house and a friendly family. I had a nice stay at your house. I wish you and your family all the best.

About the Host, Shannon
Hello! We've lived in Vancouver for 15+ years. We work in television. A good day is bombing around our neighbourhood with coffees and our kids. Our neighbourhood is actually kinda known for our coffee;) Come and be cozy!
