Welcome to Center Edge home ! :)
*Please note: you can view guest reviews from the previous location* too :)
I offer a cozy place to stay that is conveniently located in the center of Vancouver. Nestled in the quiet of a residential street, my home is a little sanctuary among the busy bustling city. I'm on the lower level of a heritage house with a secluded private garden, and spectacular view of the city skyline from the street and upper balcony!
What does this location have to offer that other airbnb listing don't ?: An awesome combination of a Super Location! Great view of city! Best public transit connections! Use of Bikes! Close to sea wall! walkable distance to downtown! and me as your host ! :-) Check out my past reviews and send me a message to say hi.
- SUPER LOCATION - the house is 5 mins walking from the Vancouver Sea Wall, 2 mins from Broadway cafes and restaurants, 20 mins walking to the artistic delights of Granville Island (Less than 10 mins by bike), 30 mins walking to downtown core (15 mins by bike). And with the most accessible public transit the city has to offer at it's doorsteps, this location really is in the middle of it all !
- YOUR ROOM + PRIVATE ENTRANCE - The private bedroom itself is calm and quiet, with a modern feel. It is located in the back end of the home, with a side door entrance into the hallway outside the bedroom that can be used as your own private entrance. There is also a small sink and kettle for use as you please, along with washroom, and access to the rest of the house, and garden as well.
- BONUS - If you have an artstic flare, there is also a creative space for guests in the humble studio (Also good for office desk work as alternative place to sit and work). This room is used for anything from recording music to painting on the walls :) and musical jams in the bright living room for any guests who have musical interests.
- BIKES! BIKES! :) - In advocating an environmentally conscious lifestyle and convenient means of transportation, I offer bikes to use. The city is very bike friendly, and most places can be reached on a bike faster than public transit or walking! Luckily there are two main bike routes within a block or two of the house. If you opt for public transit, that's easy too as I live in the most well networked area of the city for bus and skytrain! 5 min train to shopping on Granville / Robson Street, or Gas Town area (15 -20 mins by bus), direct bus line to UBC and direct Canada line from airport or to BC Ferry Terminal.
For world and work travellers, artists or those who want to experience a home like feel in the city center of Vancouver, my home is the perfect place ! :)
Happy Travels! :)
You will have access to your own personal side entrance, the washroom, side kitchenette (for mornings and late night). Kitchen for meal preps after mornings, evenings.
I'm an open person, who likes to chat when I am free. I will gladly give site seeing advice and help with any travel needs you may have. I often find myself busy with projects, and when I am busy I like my privacy to focus on my work and routine. Depending on my work schedule, depends on how much I will be interacting. Usually I prefer the mornings and late nights for focus and personal time. I also work from home sometimes, so even though I am here, I am not always available to socialize.
The Neighbourhood is truly in the midst of it all! The Sea wall is literally a 5 minute walk from the home, with beautiful views of the city. The sandy sea shores of Kitsalano are to the left, downtown ahead, and east shopping to the right. For the healthy concious and food lovers, I live on the same street as Whole Foods! with many other grocery stores within walking distance, and more sushi restaurants and coffee shops in a square block radius than you can imagine! :-)
2 major canada lines 6-10 minutes walking from the house, plus bus 9, 99 direct along Broadway to UBC. Bus 17 direct to downtown Granville. You can also walk to downtown across bridge in 25 mins! :) , take the sea bus over from Granville island, or bike there in 10 mins :)
I'm really getting into fitness and nutrition! A bit of a Vancouver Cliche! :-) I am more than happy to share what I've learned along the way.. I'm very passionate about exchanging alternative and natural based ways of curing ailments through good nutrition.
Clean and comfortable place to stay and easy to get anywhere in Vancouver by bus or skytrain. Roxana is a lovely host, great to talk with and full of helpful hints. Wonderful place :)
I enjoyed my stay to Roxana's place! Close to buses, to restaurants, to shops, to downtown...
I felt at home and I recommand this place. Roxana is very friendly and help full, for me it was like a sister! It was a pleasure to meet you! I hope to see you again!
Roxy was a great host. The room is right next to the private entrance and she has set up a little kitchen space for you to use. The bed is comfy and the room is fresh and clean. We would stay again.
The only complaint we did have was parking. We didn't learn until after we booked that there is no free, long stay day time parking in the area. Only 2 hour zones from 9am-10pm. This created some frustrations for us, as we had planned to walk and take transit during our stay. Just wished we had known this prior to booking.
Other then the parking thing, everything else was just wonderful. Thanks again Roxy!
Roxana is a wonderful, kind and caring host. Her place is situated in an ideal location: nested in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, in close proximity to the sea wall and VGH, with a gorgeous view on the Vancouver skyline. She provides a clean and tidy bedroom, a personal entrance with separate sink and shares her common spaces. Highly recommended!
This is a great room if u r passing through vancouver. Roxana is awesome and im glad she's the first person i met on moving to vancouver. She's friendly, considerate and takes great care of her guests. The separate entrance and the way the room is located in the house gives a lot of privacy if needed and the house is well located within the city. Definitely recommend staying here
Roxana was awesome to stay with. Very hospitable and the place was well located and clean. She was also great to hangout with and talk. I look forward to staying with her again if the opportunity arises!
Roxana is a great host! A very kind and talented person, she was helpful and friendly. Some times we cooked together and shared our food and had a nice chat. The bedroom is cozy, clean and quiet as the rest of the house. The location is awsome, safe and easy to get to bus and train lines and close to the sea wall... with amazing view!!! I loved and I would highly recommend staying there.
Roxana was a lovely host to have for the week – we were both busy with various things, but each day we had a chat and a couple of times had meals together (she even cooked dinner for me as a surprise – which was lovely!). The room was clean, private, very quiet and very comfortable and it was great to know that I had the space I needed to study (my reason for visiting Vancouver) and yet had made a new friend. The internet connection was great, there was a fridge and sink I could use without disturbing her, and Roxana was happy to share the living areas any time. The location is perfect for getting around, and in a safe, pleasing area.
This was my first AirBnB trip – and I would definitely stay with Roxana again, and because it was such a good experience, I will definitely AirBnB in future. Thanks so much Roxana
roxana was very pleasant and helpful. her place is cleand, comfortable and well located, especially for access to the bike paths. i enjoyed staying there.
Roxana was great. She is very cordial and yet also respectful of privacy. She provides a quiet entrance with separate sink and shares her common spaces (bathroom, living room). She will even leave you some nice notes and/or a treat, as well as internet access and clean towels. The location is great. I would definitely consider staying again.
