Port Moody West Coast Express Station is right across the street (5 minutes walk) this train takes you downtown non stop in 22 minutes. There is other public transport such as the 97B-Line bus (stop right across the street) which takes you to Lougheed Station in 15 minutes and from there are Sky trains heading into Vancouver every 10 minutes. There is also the 160 bus that goes down Hastings Street into Vancouver.

Interaction with Guests
I greet all my guests to show them around and welcome them. I'm normally very close by or my mom is also in the area. My guest can always contact me with any questions or concerns.
We live in a very peaceful neighborhood.Our neighbors consist of young and elderly families. Almost every house has a dog and everyone is very sweet and helpful.
Our location is ideal for people who want to be downtown in half hour or out to the lake in 15 minutes. We are very central, there are bus stops right across the street and the Port Moody West Coast Express Station literally across from our house. This train takes you to Water Front Station (during peak hours) downtown in under half an hour.
Also. there is a 7eleven, Liquor Store, Subway, Tai food, Greek food, Persian food, Sushi, McDonald's 3 minutes walk and many more! There is a beautiful waterfront restaurant The Boathouse 6 minutes walk ideal for a posh dinner of seafood or steak. There are 2 lively pubs across the street-The Point (live music on weekends) and The Burrard Public House (dj's on weekends and great food). Both these are spaced 100 feet from each other and a 10-minute walk from our house. You can basically go out for food and drink on foot and walk back in minutes!
There is a lovely young couple living in the basement of the house so we ask that you are considerate about noise. Also due to the age and nature of the house the attic should be used with caution, no large groups (more than 10 people) should be up there at once.
This house was great for our family! We had 6 adults and 4 kids and it worked out well. The kitchen was quite small, but the living areas were great and had lots of space to sit and hang out! The backyard was great for the kids to run around in and there was a lovely sitting area that we used! There is also a really nice front porch. Marta was great to work with and super accommodating especially since we were such a big family! We had a great experience!!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans la petite maison de Marta toutefois fonctionnelle pour une famille de 7. Une maison très propre, chaleureuse et une cuisine avec tous les ustensiles nécessaires pour préparer de bons petits plats. Elle n'était malheureusement pas là pour nous accueillir mais avait laissé toutes les instructions à ses voisins. Des personnes très agréables et disponibles chaque fois que nous en avions besoin. Marta était également très disponible par mail pour compléter nos demandes.
La location est bien située pour les courses ou toutes autres activitées dans la nature comme des randonnées autour des lacs et dans la forêt. Pour se rendre à Vancouver, la voiture était plus pratique. Le "sky train" étant en travaux pendant notre séjour.
Thank you Marta !
This place is awesome! It was exactly as described on the website but even better. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was perfect and allowed us to cook some awesome meals, there were great takeout places within walking distance, and best of all, Rocky Point Park was right across the way. We have three kids, ages 5 and 2, and they loved the splash park, the pool, the ice cream, and the playground. I am a runner and I LOVED the running trail that goes around Burrard Inlet - the Shoreline Trail. We were sharing a car with friends, and driving downtown was a breeze plus the bus was super convenient to get downtown. The living room was very comfortable with three couches and seats, and the internet was perfect also. The backyard was a huge bonus for our kids to play in, and the young couple downstairs was super nice and helpful and very friendly. Our family stayed on the first floor and then our friends, a couple, stayed upstairs and that was really nice for them to have what was essentially a private suite with a TV and a space to work at as well as a bed. I would recommend Marta's place to everyone: people with kids and also without kids - it's very flexible, attractive, comfortable and functional. Marta responded to questions really quickly as well. I fell in love with Port Moody and a large part of why is the awesome accommodations. Thank you!
We stayed at Marta's home for 6 days while visiting the BC area for the Fifa Women's World Cup. My family (6 people) and myself traveled from Bowling Green , Kentucky USA. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Marta because of several flight delays. But she took wonderful care of us by providing us with a beautiful and spacious living area. Marta was easily accessible by email if had any questions or concerns. We enjoyed several evenings on her large backyard patio. The location of her home was perfect for visiting the nearby water front and restaurant areas. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend others to stay with her.
Marta was very welcoming. Listing was very accurate, exactly as the photo and the listing. The house was clean & comfortable....truly a home away from home. I will definitely recommend Marta to friends.
Marta & Family:
The six of us had a wonderful stay in your character home where we were well rested. The location is convenient and close to the park and water. The weather was the best we have ever experienced. There was lots of room for us to lounge and chat and wonder where you have been to collect those interesting things! Thank you for sharing your home!
It was a great place for our family holiday. The space may look tiny but don't let that fool you! It is extremely functional for a group and we had lots of space. We also loved the central location for the many places we went. Marta was great and helped make our stay easy and enjoyable.
