My husband David and I are semi-retired and enjoy our large home in the Vancouver suburb of Coquitlam. Our large sunny spare room (yours) is on the street level and has all the comforts of home: a double bed with a down duvet, double sofa-bed, a natural-gas fireplace, wi-fi, a small desk and even an old-school piano! Groups of three will enjoy a private bathroom and kitchenette. This area accommodates two adults comfortably (couple plus one child). If there are more than two people in the group, we can accommodate the extra child on a sofa-bed. Note that there is an additional cost of $15/per person per night for more than two guests.
In warm weather, feel free to relax in our lovely garden or deck after your day exploring Vancouver or visiting friends and relatives.
Adjacent private bathroom is within a self-contained wing of the house. Our kitchenette/laundry room (which forms part of your living area) is equipped with a two-burner cooktop, a double sink, table, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cookware and tableware and is suitable for light meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer for your use located close by in the garage. Laundry is available for your use and is shared with us. It is located at one end of the kitchenette. That means we require access to the suite at least once a week. We will agree on Individual dates and times up front.
In the summer, we invite you to share our garden and deck where you can relax and enjoy a quiet meal outside.
Interaction with guests
David and my living space is primarily on the second floor of our home. We are usually available to provide for your needs immediately or help you with details about the neighborhood. I have lived in Metro Vancouver for almost 40 years and know the region well. I always enjoy sitting down with my guests and helping them find what they need to make their stay enjoyable.
We are a 5 minute walk from house to trailhead at super natural Mundy Park, 440 acres of coastal rain forest with 12 km of year-round groomed, unpaved walking and biking trails. We have a shopping plaza ten minutes walk from our house. There you will find Starbucks, a Japanese restaurant, Subway, take-out pizza & donair, wine store, gas-station as well as a full service supermarket that includes a deli and a take-out sushi bar.
Vancouver has a well-developed rapid transit system. The house is a two minute walk to public transit TransLink Bus #152, which connects with rapid transit (SkyTrain) station at Lougheed Mall -- 35 minutes to downtown.
Driving: Five minutes to Freeway exit/entrance that connects with downtown Vancouver. Street parking available in front of our home.

I am happiest when I am outside on a sunny day: hiking, swimming, tennis. You will often see me pottering around in the garden, it never seems like work when I am outside. I love to travel and have enjoyed my trips to Asia, Europe, South America and my many jaunts to sunny Florida! I enjoy meeting new people and am looking forward to meeting you!
