About This Listing
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. Your space in this near new home includes a sitting room, and a bedroom with private bath & shower, totalling 500 sq ft.
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 new towels, and beautiful bath products.
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.

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!
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 and cat 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!
One of these wonderful experiences you only get with AirBnB.
Thumbs up for Katy and Mark and their lovely two friends :)
You will love it to stay here and you'll wish you had booked longer.
This home was exactly as described; perfectly clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was SO comfortable and I loved the quirky neighborhood it was set in; I walked all up and down "The Drive". The skytrain and bus were less than 20 minutes to and from downtown. Mark and Katy were easily accessible by text/phone/email if I needed them -- I would not hesitate to stay here again! Thanks so much.
Mark and Katy were perfect hosts. They took time to talk to us about all the cool places to eat and shop in their neighborhood and gave us helpful advice as to how to get around Vancouver. They even let us borrow their bikes so we could tour Stanley Park. Our stay was very enjoyable and we highly recommend staying here if you get the chance.
Katy and Mark are wonderful, open, welcoming hosts who made our first trip to Canada a great experience. Thanks to their bikes and tips on the best places to see in Vancouver, we spent a wonderful day exploring the city.
Really enjoyed our stay here, only saw Mark and Katy briefly but they were lovely - really informative about great places to eat, booking taxis etc. the room itself was clean, tidy and very pleasant. Was only a 10 mins taxi into the main town or there was a bus on the corner too. And it was only a 5 min walk to Commercial Drive which was a more local are with great bars and restaurants on. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent experience. The house was impeccably maintained with new high end furnishings. Katy and Marc deliver a hotel experience while allowing one to feel like a local. The location is a block away from one of vancouvers most trendy streets full of cafes, bars, and restaurants. Iconic views of downtown. Very centrally located.
Katie and Marc are hip yet sophisticated. I felt extremely welcome. There were never any periods of awkwardness. It was like staying with cool cousins that took care of everything and expected nothing.
I will not stay anywhere else in Vancouver. Thank you both for such a nice stay.
The place was comfortable, quiet, and convenient. Their house is beautiful and their pets adorable. But our favorite part of the experience was just how thoughtful Katy and Mark were in anticipating our needs and seeing to ones that arose. Thank you guys so much! We had a great time at your place and in your gorgeous city.
