Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Quiet room in beautiful old character home steps from the Drive - Commercial Drive is the eclectic hub of the East Van neighbourhood. With a tranquil secret garden in the backyard., the house is colourful with airy communal space and lots of windows for natural light. Books, art and plants contribute to the warm aesthetic. Please note: access to the loft style bedroom by steep staircase; the loft centre is 80" high but ceiling slopes. I try to keep 2 cats out of guest area.

The space
This is an old house that has been adapted to different families during its life-time but it is light filled and warm. The loft bedroom ais quaint but surprisingly roomy; the stairs are quite steep but there are handrails. The bathroom has been recently renovated - my son is an excellent cabinet maker! I think the spring and summer front and back gardens are particularly pretty, with big hanging planters on the porches - and garden area and porch are open to share with guests.

Where you’ll be

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

I live in the East End of Vancouver, a lively area with a great mix of cultures and styles. Commercial Drive has great and varied selection of restaurants and is famous for its old coffee houses. Being a block and half away from the Drive means the street however is quiet. Lovely Trout Lake Park is a 20 minute walk away - and there are small parks within immediate neighbourhood. There are good vegetable and fruit stores and a 24 hr. Super Value within a couple of blocks.

I am recently retired but busy with garden, theatre and other types of volunteering, and traveling to new destinations. I love living in Vancouver because of its easy access to winter cross-country skiing and summer hiking.
