My place is close to Commercial Drive, Trout Lake, Easy route to UBC, downtown, Metrotown or airport.. You’ll love my place because of it provides all you need to relax after a day exploring this great city! . My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). You can walk to many great restaurants nearby, or stay home and cook. Most tourism sites are no more than 20 min drive away. For small families, an airbed can be added.

The space

Completely private and quiet this apartment has great western exposure and all that you might need however brief or long you stay. Please note, the ceilings in the living room/kitchen are lower than the bathroom and bedroom. Some very tall people may find it low, others not. See photos.

Guest access

Own entrance, 1 B/R, quiet bright open concept living room & fully supplied kitchen, with private W&D, large shower (no tub), wifi, and free street parking, in great neighbourhood central to all Vancouver has to offer.
Depending on length of stay/schedule other services may be available, ie, breakfast, bicycles, guiding, etc

Interaction with guests

On site management (intermittently available due to shiftwork) is able to welcome and host or guide as requested. The unit is completely private but we do have neighbours and other tenants in the building. Please free free to enquire with any questions or concerns.

Other things to note

Children under 2 are free. 2+ to 12 years are $15/night, enquire for price amendment. Occasional cigarette smoking tolerated outside only. Well behaved pets are welcome with additional damage deposit/cleaning fee. Please enquire.
Almost wheelchair friendly- there is one step at side of house and one at entryway to apt. Otherwise at one/street level. Good for mobility challenged. In living room the ceiling is low which may be a concern for very tall or claustrophobic people (most have not minded). There are a few light stains on the bedroom carpet and living room wall, but apartment is fully functional. Hablamos espanol.

Nice place in a quiet neighborhood but still close to shops and restaurants. The host was very considerate and attentive to our needs.

We stayed in the apartment for ~7 weeks and we felt it gave us a great starting point to see all of the best of Vancouver. With endless parks within walking distance plus a short ~12 minute walk to the skytrain, it was a fantastic place for us. Not to mention Alison is a wonderful hostess - welcoming us and our toddler with lots of little toys and books she happened to have, and even inviting us up to have a play date with her daughter! Needless to say it was a wonderful visit. Thank you Alison!

Great place, for an even better price! We came here for 4 days on our honeymoon and it was great. You can hear the neighbors but it's not too bad, and overall it's a pretty quiet street. Close to public transportation which is great since this place isn't walking distance to downtown or the main attractions, but it's super easy to get to! Alison is awesome and very friendly. She had a binder filled with lots of information, which was nice to looks through! We would definitely recommend Alison's place to anyone looking to visit Vancouver!

Alison's place is really good. I stayed there for nearly 3 months. Allison welcomed me with open arms and helped me where she could. She gave me great tips for my weekend trips, she gave me much useful information about Vancouver (e.g. where to go to, what to buy and where, public transition, ... etc.). Her place offered everything I needed. The bathroom was clean, the dryer and the washing machine were working perfectly (I used them nearly every weekend). The shower was great too. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, you have lots glasses, plates and cutlery. Since the apartment is in the basement, there was always a pleasant cold temperature (even when it was really hot outside). If it got too cold, I could just use the heater in the living room and bedroom to get it warm real fast. The bed itself is really comfortable and large, two people can easily fit in there. You may find a spider sometimes (since it is a basement apartment you can't avoid that). Alison's daughter Annabel (currently 4 years old) is really lovely. I met her in the garden a few times. She is often in there, playing and having fun. That added a pleasant feeling to the overall experience. If I am going to Vancouver again, I would totally love to stay at Alison's place again.

Alison is tremendous host. She is very kind and willing to help you with anything and gave us great suggestions on things to do around the city. She was very thoughtful and even put some toys in the apartment for our young son. The apartment is basic but well equipped it has everything you need for a weekend or for a long term stay. The home is located near the end of a dead end street which makes it quiet with a decent amount of parking on the street. It is located nicely with restaurants and groceries within walking distance.
