Raving reviews - everyone loves their stay! This fully private suite (private bathroom, living room, kitchen, sleep area) is in a bright, clean, modern 650 sq. ft. ‘Heritage Home' in Mt. Pleasant, a beautiful and safe neighborhood :) A 5-10 min walk/transit to ocean, downtown, grocery, markets, malls, banks, skytrain/busses and parks!
The self-contained, modern, attic suite is totally private (private kitchen, private bathroom, and private sleep and living room spaces). On the top floor of a house, you have downtown/mountain views to enjoy! Ideal for couples, friends, business travelers or parents w/young children. Nice quiet home with respectful neighbors you may come across ~ not meant for the partying type, but casual fun is fine. The space is quiet, private and you will rarely, if ever, hear the neighbors. The hardwood floor and insulated suite creates for a calm, earthy, airy atmosphere.
You will have access to city views, a beautiful front porch, hammock, front yard with lush green scenery. I also have a bike for your use. Free use of laundry machines (washer and dryer) in common indoor area (accessible without having to go outside). Soap and bounce sheets provided :) Use of machines 24/7 and you will rarely see other tenants using the machines.
Interaction with guests
In my free time depending on my schedule, I can socialize over dinner or a drink, discuss travel plans, suggest restaurants and point you to some secret spots in Vancouver you will love!
Other things to note
-The suite is completely private for you and your guests.
-The ceiling is approximately 8' in the center and tapers down. I am 6' tall and haven't had issues in the 6 years I've lived here. So, it shouldn't be a concern for you unless you're over 6'2 :)
-The kitchen has a four-element stove, a convectional toaster oven (NOT a full-size oven), a toaster, blender, microwave and all other kitchen supplies.
-Sleeping arrangements are similar to a hotel! Sleeping options are: (1) Queen Size bed (2) Double/Full Bed in living area with window/views and a separation divider for added privacy and (3) Fold down double size couch is also available, but rarely needed. Full bedding (pillows/cases, sheets, duvets/covers and additional blankets are provided.
-If you are a group of 3, try to space your showers out so supply will not diminish. With 1-2 people you should not need to worry.
-The house is safe and anything left in the common areas (shoes, etc) are safe.
There are only a few simple rules to follow:
1) Remove shoes at front door entrance & place to the left of stairs.
2) Quiet times: 11pm (weekdays) and 12am (weekends).
2) No smoking or drugs in the house or suite.
3) Always keep suite door closed and locked.
4) Rooftop is off-limits.
6) No candles.
7) Take out garbage and recycling regularly.
8) Respect the neighbours' privacy - they prefer to keep to themselves.
Also, please inform me if anything needs repair or you have any questions.
