Guest access

Come and go as you please, as this cottage is separate from our main residence. Keyless entry makes after hours check-in/out a breeze and the best part is no extra fees! Park easily on the street, or in the lane in front of the cottage, also free!

You will be provided your own personal entry code before check-in.
For entry: Enter code (see green light), count to 3, pull door toward you, turn knob to the left.
For exit: Press "EMTEK", pull door toward you, turn knob to the right.

Interaction with guests

We respect that each guest is unique and has different needs. We will make every effort to welcome you when possible, and make local recommendations. The beauty of Rose Cottage is that it is a separate dwelling with digital key pad, allowing for a maximum of privacy.

Other things to note

For the FASTEST and most serene walking/cycling ROUTE TO COMMERCIAL DRIVE: May we suggest that you travel North on Lakewood Drive. You will cross a small bridge, turn left at the end of it onto the Central Valley Greenway/BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy. This will take you to the corner of E. Broadway & Victoria Drive, from here you will be able to see the Sky Train stations. Cross the street in both directions (both North and West) and continue on the BC Parkway/North Grandview Hwy in the direction of Northwest. This is a lovely shortcut, it will take you directly to Commercial Drive through a pretty and quiet residential setting. See a map of this route in the photos.

Please note there are a number of local laundromats (many offer pick up/drop-off service). There is no washer/dryer on site.

If you have a smart phone or laptop we would highly recommend two apps to help you find your way around town. One is called "Around Me", which will show nearby businesses and includes maps and routes to any location or place you type in.
The other is called "Yelp" which has reviews of nearby businesses as well as directions. For fun things to see and do go to the 'tourismvancouver' website.

Beautiful little cottage with lovely decor, this was perfect for our short break in Vancouver. The park across the road is a huge plus, especially as we were travelling with a 2-year old. Colin was very helpful, available but not intrusive. Highly recommended!

A nice place to stay if you want to visit Vancouver, gentle hosts, just in front of a park, one bad point ... not fitted for 4 people ( two beds was listed on the airbnbsite, but a sofa is not a bed) overal really enjoyed our stay

Response from Colin:
It's most unfortunate that guests often don't take the time to read the accurate descriptions or information relating to the space, which is very clearly indicated in the description. Even the photographs which are also posted portray exactly what the space feels like. Airbnb' s interface while searching might be improved, as I feel that if a guest types in 2 beds 4 guests that the distinction between an actual bed and pullout type bed is not there. It's up to guests to look at the posted information and ask questions or relay concerns to clarify. Our description and details are accurately posted, and hundreds of guests have written reviews, which is why we are Superhosts.

Colin's place is in a really sweet location. A 10 minute walk to the train station gets you to the city in minutes. Great access to all that Vancouver has to offer without the grind of staying in downtown. My small family of 4, enjoyed being able to retreat to the cottage and fantastic Hendry Park after excursions around town. The park is a lively spot, good playground, and farmers market on Saturday mornings. The cottage is clean and new, and communication from the host was easy and prompt. We were very comfortable here.

Great place to stay! Conveniently located, scenic environs, and a space that is at once both charming and sleek. We found everything just as it had been described in the listing, and Colin was a great host, too--once we'd checked in, he stopped by to walk us through the amenities and help us plan our time in Vancouver. No complaints! We'd happily stay at Colin's place again.

What a hidden oasis in the big city! Communication with Colin was excellent, the cottage is 1 km from the skytrain, and it was a fabulous place to stay. Amazing farmers market during the summer months is literally in front of the cottage and it was a great place to grab coffee and breakfast in the morning. We will return!
