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, sectional sofa, and open-concept kitchen/dining area. There is beautiful landscaping in the gardens 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 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.

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 young 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.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - There are three steps down to the front door
Potential for noise - We live upstairs -- so you will hear some footsteps above. There's only two of us, and we're quite quiet!
Some spaces are shared - The laundry room in the basement is a shared space for the whole house.

Samantha Jo's place is a convenient and roomy apartment. Near Chinatown in the Stathcona section of town. Great bed,linens, great shower. Fully stocked kitchen. Great value.

This was a lovely space to stay in - and even better was the suburb Strathcona in which it was situated. The suburb is a little island of paradise that is still in walking distance to downtown. We had everything we needed in Samantha Jo's apartment and felt very comfortable there. I would highly recommend you stay here and experience a beautiful suburb (living with the locals) rather than stay downtown. Great experience!

This place and the neighbourhood were a revelation. The apartment was spotlessly clean, in a great location for walking or busing downtown, yet in an historic leafy neighbourhood with a great community feel. Union Market round the corner has excellent coffee and pastries and Finch's Market a little further on has really nice healthy big breakfasts and salads. Samantha Jo is a lovely host. We would come back again any time.

It is a great place to stay in Vancouver. We liked the Victorian homes that have been upgraded. Lovely neighborhood and a grocery store within walking distance. And of course a fabulous Coffee shop we walked to in the morning. Samantha has everything for you at her place. She is so hospitable. Sincerely, Carlos and Joan

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page... I'm a mother and a storyteller, living and working in the world's most beautiful city. I love design, architecture, and cooking great food. I travel a lot, and can't stand boring hotels -- so my suites are outfitted to be what I look for: a perfect home away from home. I truly love Vancouver and the neighbourhood of Strathcona and hope that you will too!
