About this listing

The space

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 Apple TV and Netflix, wireless fibre optic 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.

Samantha and Jason's studio couldn't have been any more perfect. It was cozy, comfortable, very clean, and spacious! It's located within walking distance of downtown Vancouver in a quiet, cute neighborhood. Samantha and Jason were very friendly and great hosts. We would definitely love to stay there again next time we return to Vancouver.

Really lovely basement apartment, perfect for our short stay. Great location and walking distance from the city / waterside. The apartment was great value, very clean, and very comfortable. A definite recommend.

The place is quite spacious and check in is really easy. We didn't hear from the hosts or receive any sort've welcome which was a shame, especially after such a long flight, we were hungry and knackered! I'm a really light sleeper so i wouldn't recommend this place if you're the same (especially if you aren't an early riser). Its situated in the basement of the house so you can hear everything above you (lots of footsteps and voices). The boiler also kept me awake as it goes on and off throughout the night. The area itself is lovely and quiet with a few cute little shops/cafes. I think it would be best having a car but you can walk around too (just avoid Hastings st as the hosts suggest). The kitchen is great, plus the use of the apple tv if you fancy a cosy night in. I can imagine a lot of people loving this place, its just a shame i'm not a great sleeper!

Samantha is responsive and helpful. Neighborhood is within walking distance of downtown, Canuck hockey stadium, Telus Museum of Science and VIA train station. Apartment and bed clean, comfortable and well equipped. Apple TV requires apple ID but Youtube and Netflix work for non-apple people. This is a basement apartment with three large windows and good light. However, there is some noise from main floor.

Nice basement studio. Clean and with a very comfortable bed. Strathcona is a quiet neighbourhood, I'd recommend having a car if you want to see the city more. The kitchen is well equipped and there's plenty of room. Samantha & Jason are really helpful and nice people.

Hi! Thanks for visiting our page... We're filmmakers living and working in the world's most beautiful city. We love modern design, architecture, and great food. We travel a lot ourselves, and can't stand boring hotels -- so our suites are outfitted to be what we look for: a perfect home away from home. We love Vancouver and our neighbourhood of Strathcona and hope that you will too!
