Clean, cosy & charming rooms in the heart of East Village: a combination of vintage /antique accents ( lace, art, lamps, mirrors) and modern furnishings: a perfect haven for women travelers! You’ll also love my place because of the ambiance of the quiet, friendly, family-oriented neighborhood and its proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, craft beers, bakeries, gifts & a major pharmacy--a 2 minute stroll to the nearest main street & buses downtown. (Private driveway too)

The space
Travelling solo for work? Or accompanied on an adventure? Wanting privacy, but also some direction/ company? The house is a quiet, safe place for women travellers. LGBTQ Friendly.

I have a cosy, charming suite at garden level in my home. Home is minutes away from one of the city’s top-rated family grocery stores (with conventional & organic foods), neighborhood ethnic restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries (including gluten -free), bars (craft beers), gifts, a major pharmacy etc. It is a 2 minute stroll to the nearest main street & buses headed downtown (theatres, Vancouver Art Gallery, Malls etc: all 15 - 20 minutes away).
A running track & swimming pool are just around the corner.
Vibrant (& trendy) Commercial drive is a 10 minute walk away--more restaurants, coffee bars, gelaterias, art galleries, clothing stores, gifts, a bookstore, & a music store.
Please be aware that this home is not located downtown or near Vancouver's beaches.

The garden level rooms include a fully furnished bedroom, living room, washroom (with a shower) and kitchen--there is no stove in the kitchen but there is a convection oven, a microwave, small fridge, toaster, electric kettle, coffee makers, & cooking/ eating utensils.
The rooms are private. However, there is a private back room (storage/ garden-tool / freezer) that I sometimes need to access--with notice.
The rooms (except bathroom) have windows and natural day-light.
There is WiFi connection & a stash of herbal teas, black tea and coffee, milk & cream, seasonal treats and granola (home-made, usually).
There is also a small antique table & chairs just outside the suite to sit & enjoy that morning coffee (summer-time, of course).
Guests can park in the private driveway just steps from the suite door.

Where you’ll be

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

My place is within walking distance of all kinds of amenities: restaurants (Italian, Japanese, Vietnamese, S. Asian, Palestinian, Chinese etc), several bakeries (including a gluten-free one around the corner and one specializing in chocolate), top rated grocery store (with conventional and organic foods), bars with craft beers, gift stores, major pharmacies, specialty stores ( meat, balsamic vinegars etc). I am around the corner from a Community swimming pool and running track. My place is in a quiet East-side family-oriented neighborhood; it is not located West-side near beaches nor downtown (that would be in a high-rise).

I am an original Vancouverite, with a life-long passion for this city & have lived on Vancouver's East side for decades. I have hosted /toured International students for years & have also experienced being a traveller innumerable times myself so can appreciate both the major things and the small comforts that make for a positive & memorable stay. I have many interests (including getting to know people, cooking, gardening, ukulele, singing, Natural health, Martial Arts etc.) I am a semi-retired Registered Massage Therapist. Other folks (including my adult daughter) sometimes live upstairs too.
