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.
