Cozy curtained room perfect for one or two people on vacation or business. You share the rest of the house with us. :) Outfitted with a murphy bed and desk, the room can easily transform into a daytime office. The room's curtain walls can be opened up to the common space, which you can make yourself at home in. A few blocks from bustling Commercial Drive and Commercial/Broadway station. Extremely quick access to downtown (great for work trips), while maintaining a calm neighbourhood feel.

The space
The room is outfitted with a comfy queen sized murphy bed with built in lights for reading. We typically have an armchair, lamp and bedside table in there, but these can be moved out if you feel like you need more space. The murphy bed has a brilliantly designed built-in desk that can fold out when the bed is up. The room's walls are made up of thick, heavy curtains that keep the room dark and private. We happily accomodate early bedtimes, so sound is not an issue.

We hope you'll feel at home and feel free to use the rest of the house - kitchen, living room etc. We're out most of the time, so you'll likely have it to yourself, but may be home cooking etc.

Our home reflects all the things we value in the pursuit of a good life. It's an amazing place to cook and enjoy big communal meals, and to have cozy evening gatherings with lots of friends and family. With its open concept and custom furniture (hand built by us!), it's designed specifically to accommodate many people, yet still feel warm and welcoming. But it's also been designed for privacy when you need it. Full of perfect spaces for cozying into a corner, it's a great space for parallel play or getting a bit of work done.

During summer months the windows and doors open wide to let the breeze flow through the space, which stays nice and cool due to being on the ground floor. In the winter, the has fireplace heats the house wonderfully and provides nice ambience to boot. We're still working on the yard, but one day it will become an amazing little haven. In the meantime, you can hear our adorable chickens softly clucking in their backyard coop, just to give you a little taste of real East Van living :)

The bathroom is outfitted with a killer antique clawfoot tub (Christine's favourite part of the house), as well as a shower head and hand shower. This is our home where we live, so the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils and cookware you might need. We have an in suite washer and dryer which you can use at any time. And you're welcome to use our guitars and ukuleles as long as you're gentle with them. We even have a custom family songbook that you can use while you're here.

We think our living room is the best and coziest on the planet (we built the furniture ourselves!), and we hope you think so too!

Where you’ll be

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Our neighbourhood is the best part of our home! East Vancouver is a special place and Commercial Drive is at the heart of it. Long home to a magical melange of creative communities, it has many of the city's best coffee shops, restaurants, music venues and more. Our favourite is the Tangent Cafe, which is all of these in one and owned by good friends of ours. Tangent has a fun mix of pub food classics and amazing Malaysian food (the head chef grew up in Malaysian Borneo), the best of the city's craft beer on tap (try the Dageraad - the brewer is also a dear friend of ours!), and some of the country's best jazz music every Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.

More information
Commercial Drive is a 7-10 minute walk from our house. Also a quick walk away (less than 5?) is Trout Lake, one of the city's best parks with a lake in the middle, two beaches (one dog-friendly), and a great community centre with a gym and skating rink.

If you're really looking for proximity, there is a cafe, a bank, a convenience store, a liquor store, a deli, a drycleaners and a handful of restaurants (Vietamese, Chinese, Italian, Greek, Brazilian, Korean, Subway and greasy spoon diner) all within about 200 metres of our house. It's pretty great.

Despite all this magic around us, our street and direct neighbourhood are as calm as they come, and lined with glorious big leafy trees. It's the perfectly balanced city life.

During your stay

The likelihood is strong that one of both of us will be here during your stay. Depending on your arrival time, we might be here to greet you, or we might guide you to the lockbox to let yourself in. We're super flexible about check-in and check-out times. We've both travelled extensively for work, play and study, and have thoroughly enjoyed experiencing people's homes through Air Bnb and other homestays. We love meeting new people, and we looooove talking about Vancouver. We're both city planning and city history nerds, and are more than happy to chat about either. We're happy to be social and get to know each other when time allows, but we're also happy to leave you be to do your own thing, work or play, and have no expectations of you other than being a respectful guest. In short, whatever kind of stay you're looking for, we're game to help you achieve!
