The space

Stay in Strathcona, Vancouver's first and original neighborhood! The house dates from 1893 and your brand new apartment benefits from new stainless steel appliances and designer touches to create a fresh and welcoming base to explore Vancouver.

The style is best described as 'Scandinavian loft cottage' which means it's a light and airy basement suite with quality fittings and attention to detail. Your apartment benefits from exposed beams, fire place, phone, wifi/internet and TV. The full kitchen includes stove, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, quartz counter tops, radiant floor heating in the bathroom and bar seating for 2. The bedroom has a double bed and cupboard and chest of draws. You also have the use of in suite washing machine and dryer. Most importantly this is a private suite so you have your own private entrance and there is free on street parking which increases your flexibility.

In the apartment you'll find quality linens, towels, shampoo/conditioner and shower gel.
The 'steamer trunk' coffee table has a selection of classic games to keep you entertained anf if you'd like to kick back there's also a flat screen TV with movies and music or...just relax with one of the many Vancouver guide books.

Strathcona is unique in Vancouver as it offers a village feel close to the centre of town. It's home to an eclectic mix of people including the largest concentration of artists in Canada, other media types and business professionals who appreciate its historic legacy and community. Corner stores and coffee shops like The Wilder Snail, Union market, Les Amis de Fromage, Finches and Bennies are all located within a short walk of each other. Moreover, Strathcona is like a tiny village close to trendy Gastown, Chinatown, BC Place Stadium, Commercial drive and down town Vancouver which are all within 10 -15 walking distance. Buses can be found on Prior Street a block away.

The suite is also located next to the busiest bicycle route in Vancouver on Union Street which will take you to the False Creek Sea Wall and Stanley Park or directly downtown via a dedicated safe cycle route. The suite comes with two bikes to make your exploration fun and convenient - one has a basket so pack a picnic and go!

If travelling by car you are 15 - 20 mins drive to one of the 3 ski mountains, Grouse, Seymour or Cypress Mountains which are open year round and offer spectacular views over the city, Mount Baker in the US and Vancouver Island over the Straight of Georgia.

We are around to answer any of your questions and more than willing to help you fill in your itinerary if you need ideas.

The space is clean and cozy, just as advertised. We loved the location, neighbourhood and relative closeness to downtown. Noise from upstairs was noticeable, but okay. Would be good to control heat in the apartment a bit better, as we found it chilly. Overall a good space, for…

If I had to describe Denise and Rolf's place with one word, it would be "cozy." Thoughtful touches throughout the apartment ensures it feel more like a second home than a rental, and despite it being a basement apartment, things like heated flooring, fireplace, rugs and throws al…
