Our location is situated in an area that's close to Downtown and transit is readily available. Skytrain hub is about a 15 min walk from our location. The area is very convenient for shopping and restaurant choices. We have also hosted medical students in the past due to the convenience of being so close to the hospitals
What people would like about our location is the ability to get to various parts lower mainland with relative ease. If travelers and guests would like to eat close by the Balfour House, there are many options available to them in the surrounding area.
The guests have access to our common kitchen, the living room and the dining room. If guests wish to cook their own food there is a local grocery store that is a 5 min walk away and could store it in the kitchen fridge.
Interaction with guests
We have a friendly house-keeper that works during the day. If there are any questions or concerns, she will be more than happy to address any issues.
Other things to note
We understand that some AirBnB guests enjoy the experience of meeting and talking with the owner and perhaps sharing a meal together. But due to a busy schedule, she prefers to work behind the scenes with a hands off approach which we hope our guests will understand :)
