The space

Vancouver has been consecutively rated as one of the most livable & beautiful cities in the world for more than a decade. Ever since we hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver has been continuously attracting more and more travelers from all over the world to explore and fall in love with our beautiful city. If you are a sports fan, you can watch our exciting professional sports teams in the MLS, NHL, WHL etc.. If you are more interested in participating in sports yourself, there is nothing here that you can’t do. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, boating, sailing, wind surfing, kayaking, white water rafting, cycling and so much more…you name it, we got it! If you are a music fan, Vancouver hosts the annual Vancouver Jazz Festival in June, Folk Festival in July, and the Burnaby Blues Festival in August. Add to that numerous arts and music festival throughout the lower mainland. If you love to eat, Vancouver is a food-lovers paradise, offering a wide variety of tastes from around the world. If you are into partying, we have a night club district with a concentration of venues (pubs, clubs and eateries). If you are a nature lover, Vancouver is the BEST! Three major ski mountains only minutes away from the city: Mount Seymour, Cypress, Grouse Mountain, and a bit further away is Whistler, voted number one ski resort in North America many years in a row; two world famous suspension bridges in our North Vancouver rainforests: Capilano and Lynn Valley; and countless beaches, rivers and lakes.

Our house is located on the Vancouver-Burnaby border, just west of the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping mall. If you love shopping, this is the perfect location for you to stay! It will take you about 20 minutes to walk or 5 minutes to drive to the mall. Metropolis at Metrotown is the largest shopping complex in the entire Greater Vancouver area. It facilitates around 470 shops, a large food court and the Cineplex movie theater. Shop till you drop!

Take a short walk to the beautiful Central Park. Central Park's primary attraction is the large proportion of its land reserved as a well-preserved temperate rainforest ecosystem, with numerous walking trails. Among its other attractions are the award-winning children's playground, pitch and putt golf, an outdoor swimming facility, a lawn bowling facility, several picnic areas, tennis courts, and a couple of small duck ponds. Wildlife in the park includes grey squirrels and coyotes. Korean War Memorial is located in the west side of the park, close to Boundary road. Swangard Stadium, another Burnaby landmark and a former home for the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team, is located at the northwest corner of Central Park.

To get to Downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park, you just simply hop on the bus outside the house; it takes about 3 minutes bus ride to Joyce Skytrain Station and further 15 minutes on the train to Downtown.

Features of the suite itself include: a fully-equipped kitchen comes complete with everything you could want to make your stay comfortable and easy. Cozy bedroom contains one queen size bed with linens and bedding provided. One pull out sofa bed if you are traveling with your friends/family. Cable TV and fast speed WIFI internet are included. Shared laundry access upon request. There is plenty of free street parking beside the house if you decide to rent a vehicle during your stay.

I will do my very best to ensure that you and your traveling companions have a pleasant stay in Vancouver, I am a sports/music/food/party lover myself, so I’m sure that I can help to point you in the right direction on whatever that you are interested to know about Vancouver!

Tanya was the perfect host, extremely helpful. This was start of a long road trip for us and the location for enjoying the city, getting organised and having chill out time was ideal. Would highly recommend.

This is a well-equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean ground-level apartment in Burnaby, quite close to both Joyce and Pattison stations on the Sky Train. It's within easy reach of Central Park (lovely walks among the trees plus playparks for kids), not to mention excellent shopping, restaurants and other facilities on Kingsway. A fantastic base for visiting the Vancouver area by public transport or by car -- we really enjoyed our 2-week stay. Tanya was an excellent host, easy to contact and very helpful throughout.
