Strathcona is the oldest neighbourhood in Vancouver and fast becoming the trendiest place to live. A central city spot, you’ll be spoilt for choice with cute cafes, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and a park with a playground and off-leash area for dogs.
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.
Fancy a bit of shopping? You’re in the right place.
These popular shopping areas are all walking distance:
- Chinatown (your neighbour!)
- Main Street (4 blocks away)
- Gastown (6 blocks away)
- Commercial Drive (10 blocks away)
A few of our favourite haunts are just a block or two away:
- The Snail (best coffee, sandwiches and groceries but no fresh food)
- Bennies (Cool Italian style grocery store with deli and fresh food)
- Union Market (Coffee and grocery store with lots of organic and home-made products...Portuguese owners...try their tart!)
- La Casa Gelato (homemade ice cream store with 218 flavours to choose from)
Skytrain station: Science World (8 minutes walk away)
Bus: A range of bus stops just a block away.
Parking: Lots of free parking around the house (all day!)
- MacLean Park (water park, swings) is the one you can see from our house!
- Strathcona Park (tennis court, baseball field, playground) is two blocks away.
No smoking, pets or big parties.
Cam seems like the type of person that is truly passionate and thoughtful in regards to his role as an Airbnb host. He's genuine in his desire for you to make the most of your time in Vancouver and provides excellent recommendations that were echoed in many of the blogs we read. I visited Vancouver with a girlfriend for a lovely ladies' vacation and we both fell in love with the neighborhood: Strathcona. Honestly, after clocking 30+ miles in three days just walking all over the city, we both still would opt for this neighborhood to stay/live in.
The apartment itself provides creature comforts including glassware, pots/pans, shampoo/conditioner, soap and tons of extra bedding. The odd angles of the apartment (the attic of their main house) make for a whimsical and charming type of Hobbit house (no Giant Orcs would fit here). The Wifi is really reliable and I'd recommend packing DVDs or your Roku to watch with the flatscreen TV if you need some downtime after hoofin it all over the city (they do provide basic cable). As Cam told us, the neighborhood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in vancouver, which magnifies the charm of the streets and, unfortunately, the voices within the home, but only in the morning during breakfast.
All in all, this apartment is a relaxing, charming, safe and very cozy home away from home.
Cam was there to greet us and give us the tour of the apartment. He made us feel very much at home. We knew the host was available if we needed anything, but he also gave us privacy. The apartment was described correctly in the listing.
Cam was extremely welcoming and friendly. The place itself was very clean, very nicely designed and very cozy. The kitchen has all the basics for cooking - very much appreciated, as many airbnb's I've used don't have much - and the bathroom has BOTH a shower and tub. Very comfy beds to boot! The location is great - quiet and residential but in an interesting neighbourhood close to Chinatown and downtown; we walked all over during our time in Vancouver. I'm 5'6"/168cm and the height of the apartment was ok for me, but anyone over 6' I think will have to be careful with the sloped ceilings (I unfortunately couldn't bring my 6'6" boyfriend here). Highly recommended!
Awesome place to stay. Cam gave us great recommendations about places to go. Very spacious area.
Host Cam made us feel very welcome he requested we ring as soon as we arrived in Vancouver which we did and his lovely wife was at our appartment to greet us and explain where things were. Cam came up when he returned home to welcome us and share his passion for Vancouver. He told us places to vist and some history.
Great place to stay, especially for a family with kids! Just a short ways to downtown Vancouver. Loved having a kitchen and our little guy loved the second bedroom. Wifi worked great and it was nice to have a fireplace. Free parking on the street was easy. Cam is great and so is his assistant, Millie. Would definitely stay here again! Thank for letting us use your space and for all the recommendations on the sheet!
We loved Cam's Funky Modern Space! The apartment was super clean and bright. Beds and linens were very comfortable, great gas fireplace and excellent wif-fi. I loved having a hot bath tub soak after miles and miles of walking and biking around Vancouver. Our 11 year old loved the wee cozy bedroom and I loved being able to make breakfast each morning in the well stocked kitchen. The Strathcona neighborhood was the ideal location for us with easy and free parking for the days we did not want our car. It's a charming and quirky neighborhood, full of friendly neighbors and dogs. We loved Union Market (amazing Jelly Donuts and house made Portuguese Chorizo) and Finch's for afternoon tea, both just a few blocks away. Other highlights nearby included Gourmet Garage for a super selection of specialty foods from all around the word and Phnom Penh for addictive chicken wings. Our son also loved having access to the basketball courts just a few blocks away. Thanks Cam and Millie for a great first visit to British Columbia.

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 ☺
