You’re five minutes walk from downtown Vancouver, the artistic Commercial Drive and Main Street areas. Chinatown is a stone’s throw away, where you‘ll discover a wide range of eating and shopping options.

Cam est vraiment sympathique et serviable.

Cam a contribué à rendre notre séjour vraiment agréable.
Cam made us feel very welcome and he was always quick to reply to our questions. I love the tips and hints that he gave us about Vancouver and we managed to squeeze many of them into our 3 day visit. Strathcona is an up and coming area with some cute coffee shops and at least one amazing restaurant The Union, that we went to twice. The apartment is well set up and there was enough room for 2 adults, 2 teens and 1 child. We also really liked the eco-friendly vibe of the place (cleaning products and shampoo, etc.).
Cam nos facilito toda la información útil de la ciudad y direcciones muy interesantes sobe donde comer, comprar y visitar.
Un perfecto anfitrión.
Lovely apartment in the loft, pretty near to a bus station to the city center. Useful introduction for nearby region, including daily needs and history. Cam is a ardent host, and pretty helpful for foreign visitors. Well equipped kitchen. Suitable for 4, but a little crowed for 6.
Amazing. Everything you'd expect from a great AirBnB experience and elevated to a sublime level of authentic inclusiveness by the charming Cam and his adorable family. The apartment is exactly as described - funky, cosy, fully-equipped, conveniently located, etc. but includes those value-adds that provide the icing on the cake: a well-stocked and equipped kitchen, a superb fan, use of a gas grill, patio seating, extra pillows, great soaps and lotions - along with a comprehensive collection of Vancouver-related materials for visitors. Cam is welcoming, available and happy to share his wealth of knowledge of Vancouver. If you're able to beat his time for the Grouse Grind he might buy you a beer! We'll be back for sure.
Our stay with Cam was the quintessential airbnb experience. His warmth, local knowledge and helpfulness was matched by the attention to detail and comfort of the apartment. The neighbourhood is clean, safe and welcoming. It's also great with kids. All in all I couldn't recommend more highly!
Cam was a fantastic host! He felt us made feel welcome from the get go - really enjoyed his personalised guide of things to do Vancouver. The space is perfect, absolutely loved the design - the beds were very comfortable. Location was also great as most sites were walking distance or close to public transport. Definitely will be staying again.

About the Host, Cam
Bonjour, Hello, I’m Cam.
A passionate traveller and entrepreneur, I’m originally from France and now living in Vancouver, Canada with my wife and two beautiful daughters.
I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new cultures. I’ve been to Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, Greece, Belgium, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, UK, Holland, Switzerland, Caraibian, Hong Kong, Australia, USA, Mexico…and there’s more on the bucket list.
I’m happiest when I’m outside; swimming, running, hiking, wakeboarding and snowboarding. I’m also a big fan of design and architecture.
I was one of the earliest members of AirBnB (2009) and the first person to rent a house-boat ☺
