Renovated, private two bedroom suite with large dining/living area, kitchen and 1 1/2 baths. Great East Van location close to trendy Main Str. with easy access transit to YVR, downtown and Stanley Park. Sleeps up to five. Walk score: 93

The space
Why stay in a box in the sky like everyone else when you can stay at the Big Orange House beside a park in a vibrant neighbourhood? The Big Orange House was built in 1908 and has recently been lovingly updated to include in-floor heating, a brand new kitchen and bathroom and WC. We offer a master bedroom with a Queen size bed, one bedroom with a bunk-bed that sleeps two, and if needed, a sleeping couch adjacent to the bedrooms in the TV area. They are all located downstairs from the living/dining/kitchen area. The entire suite is private and self-contained so you will not share the space with us or other guests.

Guest access
We are flexible about check-in and check-out times if you are arriving/leaving before or after our posted times (check-in after 3pm, check-out before 11am), but please let us know your plans in advance.
Guests have access to their own full size kitchen and large living area, as well as a small deck off the kitchen that can access to the backyard. There is in-suite laundry.The house is located next to a small park with a playground, large field and tennis courts. A grocery store, liquor store and drugstore are all within a ten-minute walk. There is parking available across the street.

Other things to note
We are located around the corner from a thriving center of epicurean delights with multiple restaurants, coffee shops, bars/lounges and gluten free and regular bakeries. We are next to a green multi-use park, which has a playground, tennis courts, an outdoor ball-hockey court and a soccer pitch. In the park, there is also a family centre with free drop-in for all parents and children aged 0-5 Monday through Thursday.
We have cable TV and Netflix, but unfortunately no DVD player.
We do have a cat, Charlie Pepperpants, but he is terrified of strangers and does not go into our guest area at all. (My sister, who is highly allergic to cats, stayed here symptom-free). You may glimpse a rare sighting, but unless you are a Cat Whisperer you probably won't get close to him, or he to you.

Location

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The Big Orange House is located in a diverse, bustling urban neighbourhood that is home to one of Vancouver's most acclaimed coffee shops, a gluten free bakery and some of the city's most popular restaurants. We are also about a ten minute walk to trendy Main Street, with its plethora of restaurants and vintage shops. A twenty minute downhill walk, or a ten minute bus ride away, is Science World/Olympic Village on False Creek. Another 20 minutes on the same bus will take you through Chinatown and downtown to world famous Stanley Park. A twenty minute walk in the opposite direction will take you to "The Drive" (Commercial Drive), where you'll find great Italian coffee, fantastic restaurants and eclectic shopping. Directly around the corner from our house there are a wide array of restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and art galleries.

When I was in my twenties, I travelled a lot. Now that I'm double that age, I've become a bit of a home-body to raise a family. I teach English at an international language institute and travel vicariously through my students, who come from all over the world. I always enjoy meeting people and learning about their countries and cultures. I have quite a good knowledge of the lower mainland and would be happy to suggest activities from snowshoeing in the local mountains, to kayaking, shopping or Science World outings.
