The space

Our little guest suite is a semi-private space on the garden level of our home, off our laundry room.

We live in a quirky old house over 100 years old! Don’t be surprised by the bolder coming out of the floor.... it’s part of the foundation! We hope you’ll find it charming and enjoy the experience of our unique little airbnb rental.

We live upstairs and would love to meet you and tell you what our favourite local spots are! Our neighbors know us well and may welcome you. Feel free to let them know that you are our invited airbnb guests.

Guest access

Your private side entrance opens into the shared laundry room. We access it occasionally for laundry and stroller storage.

A door from the laundry room leads into your private bedroom and another door into your private bathroom.

Lisa and Lake are very nice people. They really let you be in your space in their home. Floors are a bit noisy but they do describe on the advert. Didn't bother us as we would be out almost all day and later on was already quiet. All in all, good place and value for money with relaxed owners and also very helpful. Thank you both Lisa and Luke

Our stay with Lisa and Luke was great. They have a lovely historic home, and the guest suite was comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathroom is also nicely finished. And having a dedicated entrance was convenient for our late night returns. Lisa and Luke were very welcoming and hospitable. They were quick to give recommendations to us as out of towners. And we had a great conversation about all the things!

This was our first time using Air bnb so we didn't know what to expect. But Lisa's instructions on finding the place was spot on. The house is located in a very nice and quiet residential neighborhood and about 3-4 blocks to the nearest busy street which is not a bad walk at all. From there, it's less than 10 min to walk to the Expo Line which will get you anywhere around downtown. The guest room is very nice and clean and we loved the bed. And the bathroom is so beautiful!! Very nice and modern. They do have 2 kids, which we had the pleasure of meeting :) and at night you can hear their little feet go pitter patter upstairs above you lol. But we did not mind AT ALL!.. as we are very used to little kids in the house from all of our nieces/nephews. Also, Lisa said to just let her know if the kids get too loud and she will have them go in their rooms and play or something lol. We didn't really interact with the couple as we would have liked to though, because once we were done exploring the city, we would come in and be tired the rest of the evening. But they always stated to let them know if we needed anything. Overall, great experience and we enjoyed every minute of it!
