Come stay with us in our lovely home located just one block from Vancouver's famed Commercial Dr. Our home cozy, rustic, loved and nestled in a vibrant and friendly neighbourhood.
Enjoy your stay in our cozy little nest just blocks from Commercial Drive.
You will be staying in our pleasant and spacious downstairs suite, complete with double bed, your own bathroom, and a private entrance that opens into our backyard. You can sit in the yard and watch leaves fall or read books, or wander across the road to Victoria Park, full of walkers, bikers and kids in the playground.
At home, you will be welcome to come upstairs and cook in our 'cozy' kitchen (small but functional), and relax in our comfortable living room. When we are home in the evenings we would be happy to share a meal or a cup of tea.
We are also a 15 minute walk or bus ride to the Commercial/Broadway transportation center which provides easy access to all parts of Metro Vancouver.

Interaction with Guests
As hosts, we appreciate that your vacation is yours. If you choose to remain private we are happy to accommodate you. If you would like to make yourself comfortable throughout the house, we welcome that as well. Robyn and I love to share a meal or dessert with guests who have time are excited to spend a quiet evening at home. (We also like to play board games)
Our house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just 2 blocks from Vancouver's vibrant Commercial Drive. Not only is "The Drive" a confluence of countercultures but it has been acclaimed as "the best neighborhood in Vancouver" and ranked one of the 10 hippest neighborhoods in North America. Great restaurants, street side markets, unique shops, inviting cafe's, and resounding culture: all within a short walk.
By bike, we are a 15 minute ride to downtown and are close to all major bike throughways. (Bike maps available in your room.)

Recently stayed 2 nights at Chael & Robyn's place. They were extremely accommodating, especially considering our last minute request. Their place is clean, cozy and secure. Pictures are accurate and the location is amazing! Great place to stay in Van City!
We had a great stay with Chael and Robyn. The room was clean, cozy and comfortable and the neighbourhood was awesome heaps of places to eat and drink and easy to access the rest of the city by train or bus. Chael and Robyn were super friendly and welcoming and even invited us to go on a hike. We had an amazing time in Vancouver and would love to come back! Thanks heaps :) Stella and Louis
This basement suite was small but had all that we needed including an ensuite and table, the parking was easy and the location for us was ideal. The mustiness triggered my allergies a bit.
Nice and cozy room. You can find almost everything you need. We enjoyed the 2 days staying here.
This place is great! Chael and Robyn were out of town while we stayed here but everything was ready for us and Chael left a key. The space is simple but very cozy and perfect for a short stay. It's only a couple blocks from Commercial Drive so it's easy if you're on foot. Also fairly close to downtown if you have a car or want to venture out on the bus or train. Got to meet their chicken who lives in the backyard! I would definitely recommend this space to other travelers.
We are a young couple who enjoy connecting with our community and exploring the great outdoors.
During the days we both work at jobs we love. Robyn is an entrepreneur and founding co-owner of Shift Delivery Coop ((website hidden)). Chael is a substitute teacher with the Vancouver School Board, currently working a long term contract teaching Leadership and Sustainability education.
We like to spend our evenings playing games, participating in sports and sharing time with friends.
We love recycling, compost and bicycles.
We are very happy to be able to share our cozy little home with you and look forward to helping you have the most comfortable stay possible both in our home and our neighborhood.
Robyn and Chael
