Welcome to our warm and inviting home! Located minutes away from amazing parks, restaurants, Skytrain and downtown.

Our private room is perfect for solo and business travellers who are looking to experience the hidden local spots of Vancouver.

Equipped with Laptop Ready Workstation, Wi-Fi, Netflix, and Shaw Go Wi-fi for the city.

Join us for breakfast which includes coffee, tea, yogurt, granola and fresh fruit.

The space

Beautiful park next to our house where you can picnic and enjoy the sunset. As the weather improves, you can enjoy our outdoor lawn chairs and picnic table in the back yard.

This room faces the front of the house and we are located off a main street which may have some light traffic noise throughout the night. If you are an exceptionally light sleeper or require a room that is extremely quiet this listing may not be best suited for your needs.

The bathroom is shared with the family and possibly up to two other guests.

Guest access

There is access to laundry and kitchen if you require. To use these amenities, you will need to schedule a time with us when we are home. No use of the stove as our insurance does not cover guest use.

Interaction with guests

We are here to help if you need us - ask us any thing! Are you a foodie? We know some amazing eats! Here for social dancing? Let us suggest the best West Coast Swing, Salsa, Bachata, Fusion and Tango venues. Here to experience Canadian Nature? We know which hikes are the best for your level.

Charlene and Raphael are very nice people. Was hoping for a cleaner bathroom but it was understandable given the situation - they had relatives that had to stay for the night (who were also lovely people btw) and i was told in advance about it. Charlene shared a ton of knowledge with me ... where to get good eats, best way to get to the ferry etc so that was greatly appreciated. Consider staying here if you're in Vancouver cause the location rocks and the hosts are helpful !

The room I stayef is face to busy road side. When window open , it was hard to sleep. But the window is double glass So if shut the window it was very quiet. The bustoom was needed to clean a bit more.

Yes, our posting does indicate that its located by the main road and that there will be some traffic noise. The bathroom is shared and we try our best to keep it clean for all our guests.

I would like to start by saying that Charlen's customer service and charm was superb. She took care of all my enquiries in a promptly, courteous and efficient manner. Charlene's property is conveniently located near a train station, and if you need parking for your vehicle, you would have access to that amenity just a few metres from the house (street parking). I would only mention that the convenient location comes with a price. Nanaimo St. Could be busy (that was my experience from 12:00 am to 6:00 am), and the noise from the street could disturb your sleep (perhaps it was just me, I am not used to car noises during the night, I live in a very quiet neighbourhood in Victoria). I would recommend staying at Charlene's place if you are planning to go to BC Place for a concert, the service, the attention and the price are very convenient; I would stay there again. PS: Apologies for any possible grammatical mistakes or spelling, English is not my first language.

Response from Charlene:
Thank you Dave for your feedback. Yes that is the trade off for being so close to the train station is that we are off a main street which can have some ambient traffic noise.

Loved the location. Bus stop right outside front door and minutes walk to skytrain, which got you to downtown in no time and other handy locations!

I couldn't be happier with the experience, Charlene and her husband were very welcoming, and helpful, the subway station is only 5 min walk from the house. I'd definitely stay at their place again!

Both Charlene and Raphael were wonderful hosts. They are very gracious and engaging. Their place was also clean and easily accessible by public transport. I would definitely stay there again.
