About this listing
Recently voted one of Canada's "Coolest Neighbourhoods", come join us in the funky Commercial Drive neighbourhood! Very unique and eclectic West Coast vibe, authentic cafes and eateries and friendly locals. Off the tourist path, and a delight to see!
Lovely private bedroom and private bath in funky Commerical Drive neighborhood. Enjoy the entire lower floor of our home during your stay, close to all that the famous Little Italy area has to offer.

The large kitchen area is shared with us, but please feel free to make yourself at home. You will be provided with a queen mattress, luxurious bedding, fluffy towels, hairdryer, shampoo and body wash.
We are passionate about our neighbourhood, and have lots of tips for you to make the most of your stay.
Amazing restaurants, cafes, and people watching right outside. Only 15 mins by transit to the heart of downtown, with multiple bus stops less than 1 block away. Ample free street parking if you bring your own car. You'll love the cozy neighborhood vibe here.
We are a young married couple that loves to travel, and welcomes travelers here to our home. We look forward to sharing Vancouver's best kept secrets with you!
Guests will have access to their own private sitting room, bedroom, and ensuite bath, as well as a small fridge, coffee maker, and kettle. We are happy to share our kitchen space for larger meal preparation. We also have 2 bikes available for guest use in the summer months!
Interaction with Guests
We also live in the home, so frequently interact with our guests, while allowing them a lot of privacy. We love getting to know all our guests, and have shared meals and wine with a few, but are also happy to let people 'do their own thing', whatever is the preferred interaction level for our guests :)
Commercial Drive is a very eclectic neighbourhood, home to some of Vancouver's best bars and new restaurants, small funky boutiques, organic groceries, and traditional Italian cafés. So close to downtown, but with a real neighbourhood vibe on the character home filled tree-lined streets.
Ample free street parking
One block to #20 bus downtown
From the airport, we suggest taking the Skytrain directly from the airport to the City Centre stop, and catching a cab to our home from there ( it's about a $10-15 taxi ride from downtown, or $60 from the Airport).
100% non smoking property
No pets allowed (there is a small dog in the home)
No shoes inside please
We do not provide hot breakfast, beyond coffee and tea, fruit and yogurt, but there are numerous high-quality food stores nearby, and you are welcome to use the fridge and kitchen at any time.
There's no smoking in the house or outside on the property, and no guests, please.
You will have your own set of keys, and are welcome to come and go as you please.
Keep the place tidy and leave it in good condition, and that's all there is to it! We look forward to welcoming you!
