About This Listing
Welcome to Strathcona -- one of Vancouver's most sought-after neighbourhoods!
This studio suite offers high ceilings, gorgeous bay windows, exposed beams and polished concrete. It is the garden level of our beautiful heritage house, located right next to downtown. The house has been meticulously renovated, and the suite is wonderfully appointed and finished to the highest standards, including a soaker tub and heated towels in the bathroom, private entrance, flat screen TV with surround sound, wireless internet, queen-sized bed with luxury sheets, queen-sized pull-out sofa, and open-concept kitchen/dining area. There is well-maintained landscaping in the garden outside, and the house is literally steps from MacLean Park, in the heart of the neighbourhood.
There is lots of street parking right out front, and the house is a block from several wonderful delis, grocers and cafes. There's even a fantastic cheese shop and french restaurant less than three blocks away! Best of all, it is ten minutes' stroll to historic Gastown, five minutes to the seawall in False Creek, ten minutes to Rogers Arena. There are frequent buses less than two blocks away, as well as a nearby Skytrain station. We also have two vintage bicycles available for use -- and we're one block off of the city's busiest bike route on Union Street.
Enjoy the pleasure of your own front door! You will be amazed by the peace and tranquility, so conveniently located in the heart of the city. This suite is fully equipped and an ideal 'home away from home' for travelers seeking short or long-term accommodation, and an alternative to uncomfortable hotels. No elevators, no undergraound parking -- instead, we have a lock-box system in place for the key, so it's easy to arrive at your leisure.
Absolutely no smoking! We're totally gay-friendly and family-friendly. We have a two year-old daughter, so we have to make sure everything is alright by her. We ask that guests park on the opposite side of the street, as it is permit-only parking in front of the house.
This place is top shelf, hardly saw the hosts and this was perfect. Instructions were clear, space was awesome, peaceful and perfect position near to Downtown. Strathcona is a stunning place to stay when in Vancouver, I highly recommend Samantha & Jason's place.
What a lovely time we had staying at Samantha and Jason's studio.
Despite another airbnb host cancelling our reservation at very short notice, airbnb found this great studio for us and it could not have been better. From arriving a little bit early and being able to relax in the sun outside to finding everything we needed inside the studio we had a wonderful four days.
The studio is not far from Chinatown and we used buses to explore Vancouver. There are great little stores onUnion Street and Pizzeria Farina is well worth visiting.
I would recommend staying here to anybody who wants a well equipped, comfortable place to stay in a quirky neighbourhood.
Beautiful space for the start of our trip. Easy to find, ace location with some great tips from hosts' info.
Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet Samantha and Jason in person, but the place was fantastic. It was clean, comfortable, and modern. The suburb is lovely, very quiet and all the locals are friendly. Having the two vintage bikes to use was also a huge help in getting around, which is super easy on foot too. Rodgers arena is a really close walk if you want to see some hockey. We really enjoyed our stay at Samantha and Jason's place, would definitely recommend it as a perfect place to explore Vancouver.
Our stay in Vancouver was just perfect thanks to Samantha's hospitality and such a beautiful homley apartment in an excellent location. Right in the centre of East van and Main Street and very close to Gastown and Chinatown. The use of the bikes made it so convenient to get where ever we pleased. Bed was very comfortable and shower was lovely and hot. We would defiantly recommend this beautiful place!
