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!
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.
Josh and his family were great hosts! We felt very welcome in their beautiful home. The bed was super comfy, they have a huge bathtub, and lots of space to share. It was sooo close to the airport which was a huge plus for us. Thanks so much for a great stay!
Wonderfully welcoming family and very accommodating hosts. Very comfortable room, bright & clean. Great location for our flight the following morning.
Josh and Karen were lovely hosts. We only stayed with them for one night as we needed to be close to the airport, and it was CLOSE! Very handy for us. The room was really nice. We had dinner at the Flying Beaver at Josh's recommendation and it was great. Communication leading up to our stay was excellent. I would definitely recommend staying with this lovely family.
The easiest host family to work with and speedy communications too! Josh was very accommodating to my date request and even though we did not get to fulfill the reservation (complications on my end), he was so gracious in the whole process we would definitely try him again next time around!
Josh and Karen are very friendly and helpful, it was quite late that night but Josh responded very fast and offered us a place to stay. The house is very stylish and the room is neat and comfortable.
Josh and Karen's home was absolutely LOVELY. The only bummer for us....was that they weren't home and we didn't get to meet them, the kids, and the dog. That being said, we felt so lucky to stay in this serene comfortable home located so close to the airport for our early morning flight. The taxi to the airport was about five min. It was really perfect. As we drove past the ugly row of hotels near the airport we felt sorry for the silly folks who were staying there instead of booking with Josh and Karen. The house is spacious, stylish, and very clean. Our bed was by far the most comfortable one we slept on during our entire three week tour of BC. Seriously! The neighborhood is charming and was quiet as well. We walked over to the Night Market for dinner and had some very tasty (and spicy) Asian street food from the vendors. It was such fun. There is a reason that airbnb is becoming so popular....places like this!!! We hope to host this family if they ever take a trip down the California coast.
Perfect place to stay regardless if you are just passing through or staying in town for a few days. Josh, Karen and Juniper are all wonderful and very welcoming! I would definilty recommend them to anyone I know! Thank you for a lovely stay!
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!
