The Space

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.

We are a young married couple that loves to travel, and welcomes travellers here to our home. We look forward to sharing Vancouver's best kept secrets with you!

Guest Access

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 :)

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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).

  • Katy and Mark had a beautiful basement suite they shared with us over last weekend. We enjoyed staying there very much. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was quite functional, and there was minimal noise at night. I would stay there again!

  • Katy and Mark were so welcoming for the couple of days that we stayed with them. It was a lovely area, lots of stuff to do in walking distance and good public transport links to downtown Vancouver. They also provided us with a really useful information sheet about things to do in the local area. A great place to stay - totally recommend it for anyone looking for somewhere in Vancouver!

  • Katy and Mark (plus their lovely cat and dog) were the perfect hosts in Vancouver. We loved their place, them and all their recommendations (seriously go to tatsu when Katy tells you to!) We couldn't have asked for a better first air bnb rxperiencr , what with their gorgeous place and great location. Thank you both so much for getting our holiday off to a cracking start. Very much hope to see you when you visit England in the future and we will be sure to stay again if we are lucky enough to return to vancouver . Hayley and Tom

  • It was great. We stayed there with our two kids (4 years and 5 months) and Katy and Mark are great hosts. The place was just perfect. Way more that any guest could have expected. It was very clean, very comfortable and they were such a great help to us way beyond anything, we could have asked for.

    And not only the place, also Katy and Mark were great. We really enjoyed the conversations and if you ever have your little place in Portugal, we will come for sure!!!!

  • Mark and Katy were amazing hosts!! We could not have had a better experience in Vancouver thanks to all their suggestions of places that we wouldn't have been able to find on our own. The location was central to a ton of great restaurants and it was really easy to get around! It was steps from the bus and close to the light rail. We cannot say enough kind words about Mark and Katy's hospitality, they made us feel right at home and made sure that we could always get in touch with them if we ever needed anything! We will definitely be staying with them again when we come back to Vancouver!

  • I had a great three relaxing good night sleep in Katy and Mark's home. They are very friendly and always ready for a conversation. The bed was comfortable and the shower fantastic. I had three busy days at a conference so I did not have that much time, but the little time I spent with them late at night and early in the morning was very friendly and one day they gave me a ride to downtown. Thank you for opening your home to me!

  • We had a wonderful time at Katy and Mark's place. Both were very welcoming, helpful and always cheerful. The unit itself was very nice, roomy with a lot of privacy. The location was ideal, close to downtown, but also near Vancouver's Little Italy, which was really enjoyable.
    We highly recommend this place to anyone! :)

  • Katy and Mark were great hosts! Their accommodations were very nice and they were very accommodating in our early departures and late arrivals. We love to explore areas when we vacation and leave little time other than to sleep in the places we stay. We were glad this did not seem to bother Katy or Mark since we were coming in fairly late and trying to make as little noise as possible. While we were there, we found their place to be very nice and comfortable. We'd definitely return if we're ever in the Vancouver area again.

  • Great suite and friendly hosts - what more can you ask for? The basement suite is very large and comfortable, as pictured. It's on a quiet street just one block from restaurants & shops of Commercial Drive, and no need for a car as the bus goes straight downtown. Katy and Mark are super friendly and helpful - thanks for everything!
