This modern self-contained basement suite has a private entrance, and boasts underfloor heating. Located along a bike route, we are near parks, 2-3 blocks from public transit, and a 15-20 minute walk to great cafés, food, Main Street and Commercial Drive. While we're slightly less central than other places, our city neighbourhood is relatively peaceful and quiet.
This basement suite boasts a private entrance with keyless entry. The polished concrete flooring and underfloor heating add a warm elegance to the space. Included in the space is a:
- bedroom with a queen-size bed, walk-in closet, iron and ironing board.
- living space with couch, table and chairs.
- TV with a few channels, a DVD player, an HDMI cable hookup, and a small selection of DVDs.
- kitchenette with fridge, microwave, and kettle. Note there is no stove so it is not set up for much cooking.
- bathroom with large mirror, shower, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash and hairdryer.
Zugang für Gäste
You won't need to worry about keys thanks to our keypad access door lock. Two bikes and helmets are sometimes also available for an additional fee. Because the suite has its own entrance, you will enjoy total privacy.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We're often home as we have two young children. We welcome people to stop by and say hello but you will have complete privacy in your suite if you'd prefer.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We take pride in our home and look forward to sharing our suite with you. We want to make sure you have a wonderful experience. As such we provide local maps and sightseeing tips. The space isn't designed for much cooking as we are not zoned for a stove or hotplate but there is a kitchenette with basics such as a microwave, kettle, large bar fridge, and dishes. Although we try to keep it to a minimum, you may hear footsteps from above as the suite's bedroom is located below our living room; we have quality soundproofing but our young daughters' footsteps still come through at times! There is no laundry available in the suite but if you're staying for several nights, we may be able to add a couple of things to one of our loads. Please let us know if we can do anything to make your stay more pleasant.
We take a lot of care with our home, with much of the furnishings being lovingly collected over the years and through our families. We hope you will treat it as you would your own home.
Smoking is a no-no in the suite and on the property.
We love animals and kids but we unfortunately we have a no pets and no kids policy.
This is a quiet neighbourhood and parties are not allowed. If you wish to invite friends over, please let us know in advance. The maximum overnight occupancy in the suite is 2 people.
When your stay is through, please ensure the dishes are washed and you've placed your garbage, recycling and compostables in the bins provided.
We'd appreciate no loud noises after 10pm and before 7am but there is good soundproofing in the suite so feel free to enjoy music or movies at any hour you prefer!
Since we've had concerns from previous guests with sensitivities, we'd also ask that strong colognes or perfumes not be applied in the suite.
Please note because we have a 3-day minimum stay for the suite, rescheduling requests will not be taken within 5 days of your scheduled arrival time.
Outside the home James and I work in public health but because we have two young daughters, we're not usually far from home when we're not at work. If we're not cooking, cleaning or playing games, we're often somewhere nearby playing Ultimate frisbee or spending time with other families. We don't own a car so you'll also find us venturing around the city on our bicycles.
