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! Rental of bikes! (with prior notification pls). 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. (*For Med./Res. students, I'm a 3 minute walk from VGH!, and direct bus 99 to UBC :) ..I offer 5% discount to Canadian Med students only *).
- 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 more modern feel than rest of my home. It is located in the back end of the house, 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 artistic 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 your own private side entrance, bedroom with locking door, with key to your side entrance and bedroom. You will have access to back house for extra storage if needed, the washroom, side kitchenette (for mornings and late night). Kitchen for meal preps after mornings, evenings.
Interaction with Guests
The living room, kitchen and washroom are a shared space. I often do work from home, so while I may be here I am not always available to chat. Usually I prefer early morning and late nights to myself for productivity and relaxation.
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. VGH a 3 minute walk around corner. For the healthy conscious 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 :)
Other Things to Note
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.
During your stay:
As a Green city, Vancouver encourages environmentally friendly lifestyles and I encourage it in my home too! :) Please recycle your bottles/paper in dividers under the sink and compost leftover foods in container on counter.
I also ask no shoes in house please, and to limit use of air pollutants like bottle sprays, hair-dyes, sanitizers, or oils/lotions that may stain sheets. Many thanks! :)
Very welcoming host. No problem getting key. Excellent location for anyone who will be spending time at Vancouver General Hospital. Beautiful area. Good value. As described. Good communication, even while she was away.
Our 17 year old son stayed with Roxana for a month while he was in Vancouver to play and train for ice hockey. Roxana was extremely helpful and communicated quickly while we were organising his stay.
Our son said that Roxana was really helpful and very accommodating to him. She was able to guide him in the right direction with everything he needed and said it was very easy living with Roxana.
Can really recommend her.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Roxana's. She was a wonderful host and very fun to be around. We had great talks and she allowed my privacy when I wanted it. Her place was the perfect location for me, as it was a five minute walk to VGH and a ten minute bus ride directly to BCCH. I would highly recommend Roxana's.
Roxana was extremely warm and welcoming, we had a great stay at her place! Her hospitality was top notch and it was a pleasure to be in her company. Would definitely recommend her to others and we hope to see her again on our next visit!
Very nice space. Though our stay was short and our interactions with Roxana were limited, she did a great job making us feel welcome. She was also very helpful with suggestions regarding the area. Overall very nice (as described) area, location,and host.
Roxana was extremely accommodating and had a wonderful space. It is centrally located in Vancouver, and provided us easy access to all over the city. While we had a car, it would have been perfect for use of mass transit or bicycles. The apartment was clean and the space was large. We also appreciated that she let us stay on short notice and was so friendly.
Roxana was very welcoming when I arrived at her place. Though I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with Roxana because I was out and about for most of my stay, I can say that she puts a lot of effort into making sure the guest has everything they need whether it’s toiletries, maps and guides, or in my case some fruit for when I woke up on my first day there. The space is simple but has everything you need for a short stay, the private entrance and kitchenette were handy additions because I didn’t want to feel like I was in Roxana’s way. It was a short walk to the seawall in one direction and the train station to get you into town in the other direction, so a convenient location to experience diverse Vancouver.

Welcome to Center Edge Home ! A little bit about your host! :)
I am an audiovisual hobbyest with an absolute passion for travel and have been fortunate enough to live and visit different cities internationally. I love learning new languages and practicing them with any guests who stay, (I'm currently fluent in English and Spanish ...with a basic level of French, Romanian, Arabic, and Norwegian).
You can also see reviews from my previous place. This listing's photos that you are viewing is of my current place that I now live in. Here, I hope to give great accommodation as well as creating an original experience for my guests with a local's advice on the best things to see and do in and around Vancouver! :)
