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:)
