Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
If you want a truly as-the-locals-live experience, come stay in this cozy, mid-century inspired home-away-from-home in one of the best locations in the city, halfway between, the bohemian Commercial Drive and Hastings Sunrise neighbourhoods. Great coffee, eats, grocery shopping, and parks are blocks away, as are major bus routes. Bonus: in the spring, this quiet, cherry tree-lined street erupts in pink blossoms, which fall as magical snow. See GUEST ACCESS for those curious about QUARANTINING.

The space
A very comfy bed and a cozy sofa and TV/lounging area, with a vintage vibe, means you're staying in a unique space rather than non-descript hotel, while having all of the privacy and amenities that a hotel offers. The suite is designed for a private experience, unless you're looking to do more elaborate cooking - there is only a mini-fridge, microwave, hot plate, and basic kitchen utensils in the guest suite. For those aiming to stay longer, and who are planning to do more cooking, please feel free to inquire with me about access to the kitchen upstairs. I'm happy to make arrangements, if our schedules align. See GUEST ACCESS description for those curious about quarantining here.

Commercial Drive is an iconic East Van neighbourhood, historically known as Little Italy, and it has all of the diversity and eclecticism you could ask for. Hastings Sunrise is populated with the best Vietnamese food in town and has great East Asian grocers. Boutique shopping and coffee shops abound in both neighbourhoods. I'm also conveniently located near (but well out of earshot to) the highway for access to the North Shore and the Sea-to-Sky for those wanting an urban home base for outdoors excursions. The house is tucked into leafy, family friendly streets, where you'll sleep in peace.

During your stay
The suite is set up to be private if preferred, but if you need access to a full kitchen or simply want to come and meet Norm and I upstairs for local tips or for help in planning an outdoor excursion, we're very friendly and happy to help.
