The beautiful back yard and garden are for guest use. We ask that laundry be done only when it can be attended to for the full duration of the wash and dry cycle. Housekeeping is only done after the guests leave. Cleaning supplies are in the suite as well as a change of sheets if you don't want to bother with doing laundry. We respect our guests privacy and will not be present during your stay, but as we live on the second floor of the home, we are available to help out with any questions you might have about the city, or to supply you with any household items you might request. Feel free to approach us anytime. Please note: we do not allow our home address to be used for incoming mail ) or packages. We ask that the new kitchen be treated with respect by the gentle placing of cooking pots on the glass top and also that frying be done on medium high heat only and with the use of the splatter screen supplied. Our cookware is excellent. There is a fire extinguisher in the kitchen.

One black and white cat (Danny) lives with us upstairs, and though he will try to worm his way into your apartment, please save your visits with him to the outside areas as we want to cater to guests who have allergy issues.

This place was very nice and cozy and you could tell it was very well cared for. In a great location as there are stores and restaurants very near by. In a nice quiet neighbourhood with a great view of the park across the street. We had a very great stay and would stay again

This place is located in a quiet area close to downtown. We brought our own vehicle, and we found we were within fifteen minutes of most attractions. Trout Lake across the street made for excellent evening walks. Iris is a wonderful host. Had lots of privacy, but always knew we could get a hold of her if needed. She is very accommodating. The suite was very clean and well kept. Definitely our top choice any time we go back.

Truly a gem! The home was clean and beautifully furnished with everything we could have wanted. The scenic park right across the street with it's walking trails and Saturday farmer's market made it feel like a little piece of the country in the middle of the city, yet you were only a short walk away from great restaurants, cafes and the SkyTrain. I would absolutely recommend Iris' place to anyone! ...Keith & Rosemary

My wife and I stayed 1 week in this comfortable main floor apartment. The apartment was situated in a great location, close to parks, shops, restaurants, and in our case.....our daughter. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We were fortunate enough to have some terrific weather and that allowed us to enjoy the backyard in the evening after full days of sightseeing. Communication with Iris was almost immediate and the instructions she gave for directions and access to the apartment was clear and simple. Although Iris was not present for the first few days of our visit, she was always available by phone or email and she even provided us with the name and phone number of the gentleman that was looking after the rest of the house in her absence, in case we had any problems, which we did not. Thank you Iris and Fred. Another great Air BNB experience for us and we will be returning.

I have been staying here on regular basis because of work. I am never disappointed by the welcome and hospitality that Iris & Fred extend. It's also a wonderful community with many great shops and restaurants nearby. I will most definitely be back, if I am back in Vancouver.

I have had the opportunity to say here on several occasions. I keep returning because Iris is a wonderful host, and the location is so convenient. It feels like home away from home. Thank you both for a wonderful home.

Hello! My husband Fred and I are actors living in central Vancouver. We pride ourselves on hosting by the golden rule - create a space that we ourselves would love to visit. A clean, warm, inviting place that you can truly call home away from home. We look forward to greeting you and hosting your stay. The apartment will have everything you will need including a large well equipped kitchen. I am also a cook book writer. Thus the well equipped kitchen! We ask that guests tell us a bit about themselves before we accept a booking. Things like: general ages and number of guests, where they are from, purpose of the trip etc.
