  • Aptly named Funky Modern Space: cute, well stocked character loft in Strathcona. Attention to detail: umbrella in the front hallway, his contact info on the blackboard, a cooler bag in the kitchen and ice packs in the freezer for picnics: why would anyone want to stay in a hotel? Loved the neighbourhood- central, safe,charming. Lots of Buddhist temples, cool atmospheric coffee shops, great gardens and lovely old heritage homes. Cam was very friendly, professional, helpful, and timely. His info sheet on what to do- activities/ restaurants/ sights for young and old is a gold mine of the best of Vancouver. Virtually a cross- section of Van highlights- nearby and within the broader area- for everyone. Clearly Cam is very much dedicated to ensuring that his guests have a positive experience: one could only hope to find a Cam at every Airbnb, and a Funky Modern Space in every city. Grand merci Cam!

  • I had a really great first time in Vancouver thanks in large part to staying at Cam and Caylee's place. The location was very accessible for me after taking the train in from Seattle, and it was a great spot for getting around the city—bus stops were nearby in addition to a Sky Train station. Often I would just walk though, and had no problem walking from the place to downtown. There's plenty of great places to eat around the area, in addition to several small grocery stores that had what I needed for when I wanted to cook.

    The apartment was quaint and was very clean upon my arrival. I would definitely stay here again the next time I happen to be in Vancouver!

  • Cam was a great host; very polite and available for questions. The apartment was very practical : keyless door lock, wifi, shower, many hooks to hold your clothes, thermostats, full kitchen, etc... On top of that, it was located in a beautiful neighbourhood. I recommend staying at this spot !

  • Cam was a gracious and pleasant host ,he accommodated us even letting us in early in the morning .The funky modern space was all we needed to be comfortable and the location is ideal for walking or cycling around Vancouver
    His recommendations suited our sensibilities and tastes

  • Staying at Cam's was a true pleasure. He went above and beyond his duty as a host by providing maps and excellent recommendations. The neighborhood is super cute, easy to navigate and close to many amenities. We met many people who knew Cam and treated us especially nice! He even called us cabs when we needed since our phones weren't working outside of the US. I definitely recommend funky modern.

  • Truly, one of the most comfortable places I've stayed in. Such a great place to call home during my time in Vancouver. Every amenity and place of interest is very close by. Guests can see everything on foot or simply rent a bike. Cam was a wonderful host, providing plenty of information about places to see. I can't think of any other place to consider staying at in Vangroovy!!!!

  • The Funky Place is a delight to stay in. Three of us were staying there on business and the Funky space worked for us. Cam and his family were approachable, friendly and they even came by to see us at the trade show we were attending. I would happily spend more time at the funky place. Hopefully I'll have more time to explore the neighbourhood next time.

  • The Funky Modern Space surpassed our expectations ... comfortable bed, well equipped and in a good position for discovering Vancouver and the local neighbourhood.
    Cam was the ideal host; welcoming, informative and charming. We especially enjoyed his ' facts and todo sheet' backed up by maos and the guide books he provided.
    Cam, Caylee and their two delightful little girls made us feel like longstanding neighbours without in any way being intrusive.

  • What a lovely, cozy space for a long weekend trip to Vancouver! It never felt crowded, even with 5 people sharing this space. We enjoyed our time immensely and would recommend this place to visitors, both for the uniqueness of the setup and the care the host takes to make his guests feel welcome. The handmade brochure is a surprising and nice touch.

  • Cam's funky modern space was great for visiting Vancouver. He dropped by and gave us a detailed run down of things to do and he even had a well-designed synopsis printout for us. This definitely added to the quality of our visit to Canada. Thanks Cam!
