The space

Comfortable private room (next to full bathroom) in a newer, family-friendly house.
We are able to host singles, couples, and entire families (have other rooms that can be made available). Please contact us for pricing on additional rooms, and we will do our best to accomodate you.
Very close (as in close enough to occasionally hear departing flights) to Vancouver International Airport (we may be able to pick you up, or drop you off) and Canada-Line Skytrain for easy access to downtown Vancouver. The Richmond Olympic Oval is very close as well (walkable).
Our neighbourhood is a quaint, 1940's community, unique in the entire lower mainland. We have a large park just a 30 second walk away, and can recommend other outdoor (or indoor) activities close by. We love our house.

While meals aren't included in this price, let us know ahead of time if you would something arranged and we would happy to do our best to accomodate. Either way, you are welcome to join us for coffee in the morning, or make use of our kitchen space.
We have one quiet, but friendly dog.

Main guest-room has a new queen bed with high-end mattress and big closet.

If it's more than two people planning to stay (i.e. if you need more than one queen bed), PLEASE send me a message of inquiry (instead of a booking request). Our main guest room is comfy for two, but there are lots of times when we can make arrangements for other rooms to be available. Thanks!

House Rules

This is our family home. We finished building it last year, and love it. We work hard to keep it clean, in good condition, and will expect our guests to be respectful of that.
The property is non-smoking. This is non-negotiable.
We will do our best to make your stay comfortable and generally we are very accommodating, but we ask our guests to respect the fact that this is a family home, not a hotel. We don't have overnight staff, and we both have jobs that require our energy.

Ultimately, as with all cases, we just ask that you be respectful of your hosts, and their neighbours.

In the heart of Burkeville, this is a great place to stay if you have business at the airport or in Richmond, otherwise a the Skytrain gets you downtown in 30 minutes. The bed was super comfortable and lots of room to store things. Beautiful house and welcoming hosts!

Josh and Karen are super,they accepted our urgent request and prepared the room tidy and clean as soon as they can. I love their house's atmosphere. A sweet home and a cute dog. And it is near to the skytrain while the neighborhood is safe and quiet altgough it nears the airport. Highly recommend!

We spent a night at Josh's home. My girlfriend and I arrived late in the evening, but Josh picked us up at the metro station. The place is very quiet and we had a great night. Josh and his wife were very welcoming and we would definitely return.

My wife, Karen, and I are from Vancouver, BC, where we are both elementary school teachers. We have two kids, love to travel, and have only recently been alerted to this gem of a resource that is Airbnb. We are hoping to not only meet and stay with new people, but be able to host people passing through our great city.
Karen and I are both avid readers, movie watchers, and socializers, and have recently built a house that is designed to host our family and friends comfortably for parties and overnight stays.
Hope to meet you soon!
