Our humble, clean, and quiet home is a great base for any Vancouver getaway or business trip. Just minutes away from dozens of shops, cafes, restaurants, and craft brew pubs, this suite is situated near Dude Chilling Park.
The location is Vancouver's best kept secret. Close "Dude Chilling Park", it is close to everything in Vancouver. While only three blocks from hip and bustling Main Street, our home is on a quiet residential block.
Cafes. Restaurants. Shopping. Parks. Brew Pubs. Events. Transit. Bikeways. Seaside. They're all close.
You can get to downtown or the eclectic Commercial Drive equally as fast. Main and Broadway are only 5-minutes away and will get you anywhere in the city.
Our condo is our home! At 750 square feet it is very spacious. We keep it tidy, clean, and minimalist. The suite is very private with ample tree and shrub coverage out front. The large balcony has great views of a park and you can see a sliver of the mountains--it seems like you're not in the city while staying here. While not flashy, with an electric fireplace, we call it our urban cabin.
The bedroom is cozy and has an incredibly comfortable queen bed. There is a small pull-out sofa in the living room, with an inflatable twin bed available. The suite accommodates two guests (if you are two guests and have a child of under five years old, they may also stay).
Our bathroom is large and clean.
On check-in and out: it is as indicated, but we may be able to be flexible--let's chat prior to booking to ensure we can work something out.
Time in minutes (walk/bike) from various locations:
* Main Street (great bus service) 3/1

* Main Street SkyTrain (rapid transit anywhere in the region) 15/5
We do our best to use hypoallergenic, natural, and environmentally friendly cleaning materials and soaps in the condo.
PS: Dude Chilling Park is an interesting and fun place in the summer. There are always events in the summer: ranging from free yoga, to improv practice, to frisbee, to chilling and picnics.

No pets and no smoking please (in suite or in balcony). We live in a quiet building full of respectful condo owners and ask that you are clean and quiet.
I live with my wife, Laura, and love to meet people from new places and show them the best city in the world - Vancouver! We're both environmentally conscious and active and have traveled extensively around the globe. My major interests are travel, sports, and music; I also love cycling, hiking, coffee shops, nature, and games.
