Hardwood floors, lots of light and a comfy queen bed. This is the quietest room in the house but it also get great airflow and stays cool in the summer.

The space

The Chateau, as it's been affectionately tagged, is located on the top floor of a big old home in East Vancouver. Myself and my partner Marcus have lived here for 9 years and we love this place. The house is airy and full of light and plants. We have a large deck and garden (which your welcome to pick from!) below.

Guest access

- full kitchen
- washer/dryer
- kitchen/laundry staples
-towels/linen provided

Interaction with guests

For most of the summer there will only be one other person around, Marcus and he will out and about a lot, so you will have the house to yourself quite a bit. If Marcus is gone for several days, (he's a photographer so sometimes work takes him out of the city at a time) there will be a cat caretaker coming in to make sure the cats are fed and inside the house.

Other things to note

We have 2 cats Polo and Orange Kitty, they are awesome! They have free range of the house, but if you don't want them in your room just shut the door when you go out,(they won't take it personally) they do go outside, but we do our best to keep them in at night, we would appreciate consideration on your end to not leave the door open late at night We do have a cat care taker to come when we aren't here, so no worries about food etc....

We stayed with Courtney for 3 weeks when we moved to Vancouver. Our stay was great, Courtney and Rowan are awesome and welcoming and her house is super cute. We highly recommend.

Our stay with Courtney was great. We booked quite last minute, as our previous airbnb cancelled two weeks before our trip. Courtney was very easy to communicate with, very welcoming, friendly, and generous. We were provided with everything we could need, and she was very thoughtful. Her little son Rowan is the cutest child ever. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It was great being able to cook and use the balcony. We had just moved to Vancouver so were staying with Courtney for a month, and it was so useful being able to get advice on everything, as we were very much novices!! If you're looking for somewhere very central, this is a little further out. We didn't find it a problem at all, and found it easy to walk to the sky train, and amazing food places. It's also easy to get the bus! We absolutely loved being near Trout Lake.

My stay at Courtney & Marcus' "chateau" was lovely! Great apartment, cute cats and super nice hosts. The location was perfect for my work trip to Vancouver. Quiet neighbourhood and not too far from downtown or other areas. Would highly recommend!

Had a great time staying at the Chateua with Courtney and Marcus. The house is beautiful, clean and homely and the hosts were incredibly friendly and fun. I believe my time in Vancouver was made even more brilliant by staying at this place. Thank you guys, hopefully I'll see you again someday.

We were two Australian girls who had just moved to Canada on a working visa, we could no have picked a better two people to begin our stay with. Courtney and Marcus were very welcoming and very easy to talk to. They were such agreat help with letting us know which trendy spots to check out, the transport and also advice on renting and what to look out for. There hospitality was fantastic! We were free to make ourselves at home and never felt uncomfortable. We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We had a great time at Courtney's and Marcus' place! They were very sweet hosts and will answer all the questions that you might have. They also gave us good tips for cool places to eat. The room was very nice and the apartment very quiet - we had all the privacy we needed. The sundeck was really cool to hang out, eat and have a chat. We would definitely recommend staying at this place!

Hello there! My roommate Laura and I enjoy a pretty low key lifestyle when we are at home. We like to cook, listen to music and hang out on the deck now that summer is coming. That said we are both pretty busy and are out of the house a lot. However, we are happy to give tips for seeing the city if you are new to the area and if there is time to socialize we would love to get to know you. But, don't take is personally if you don't see much of us!

We also have two outdoor cats (Polo and Orange) and I have a 10 month old boy. He is a very chill creature, but if you are baby shy this wouldn't be a good fit :)

We'd love to hear from you, please feel free to reach out with any questions!
