Our garden level suite is located in a historic residential neighbourhood just outside of downtown Vancouver. A perfect way to experience a more authentic side of the city- walk over to the local market, grab a coffee and look out on the park.
Enjoy Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhood while being close to all the action of downtown. Strathcona is walking distance to places like Rogers Arena, Gastown and Science World, yet maintains the feel of a tight knit, friendly community. Most of the city’s colourful heritage homes are located in Strathcona and this is your chance to stay in one of them! Built in 1903, the house has been recently restored, including the addition of this brand new, boutique style suite.

Grant and I met ten years ago when we were both young tree planters. We moved to Vancouver 8 years ago and fell in love with Strathcona. I am a carpenter and Grant is a photographer. We have travelled all over the world, both together and apart and so know the value of a great place to stay. We are excited to now be able to host other travellers and can't wait for you to experience this beautiful city.
