Other things to note
FAQ:

1. Do I have the whole condo or just one room?

My home is listed as private room (plus private bathroom), not the entire home. Living room, kitchen and balcony are shared.

I always give priority of usage for guests, most guests had good experience as you can see from my reviews. (Details: This is a two bedrooms and two bathrooms condo, the layout of my condo is that the two rooms and bathroom are separated by a living room, so there is some distance. And I am mostly in my own room when I have guests except using the kitchen. I live with my young daughter, she likes having guests too! She goes to school and for now I work at home (may change in the future). I don’t mind mild noise, as far as no loud party vey late, guests are free to do whatever you want. This is a beautiful condo and I want to share with guests :)

2. Is there free parking?

Yes and no. I did not list my home with free parking, but we have free visitor parking spot and it's first come first serve, so in the case when all the spots are taken, especially if you come late on weekend, then you can use paid parking, it's in underground, not too expensive, 8pm-8am $5 and $15 per 24 hours. However most guests indeed get free parking.

3. Can I invite my friends?

Yes, your friends are welcome too, I have guests coming to celebrate birthday and I am glad they had good time. However only small group (within 5 people), no big party, no loud music, and overnight stay can only be 2 people, and stay quiet after 10pm and basic cleaning after your gathering.

4. Can I smoke?

Yes, but only in the balcony.

6. other things:

I am very hospitable and open-minded, I welcome guests from all over the world, men or women, LGBTs, all ages. I respect all religions, e.g. if you can’t accept pork, leave me a message, I will make sure we don’t have pork during your stay.

Also the pictures of my home are taken by myself in summer time, more flowers and brighter, so it looks nicer and nothing fake, just the actual plants and layout will change based on season, it still looks good, just may not exactly the same as you see on the picture, please don't mistaken this as not accurate.

And if you any other questions, be free to message me, I always try my best to respond quickly.

Again, it’s my pleasure to host people, and welcome to my home!

New Rule:

Please be aware we have neighbours and every guest must respect neighbours, that means be quiet on hallway and quiet time after 10pm and early in the morning. I have got complains from my neighbour several times, I feel very sorry, I personally never had bad experience with any guests, it's just some neighbours are more sensitive to noise, so please be aware of this during your stay. Thank you!

Update for Covid19:

I still host occasionally but I do more cleaning and keep a social distance. Luckily the layout of my home is that there is some distance from my room to guest room. (I am mostly just in my own room, working and studying online, I am not going to anywhere, not sick either, no travel, no meeting people for months now, and I am fine :)

Location

New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada

Located beside Fraser River, my neighbourhood is like a mini downtown, vibrant and convenient, walking distance to all the restaurants, cafes, bars, market etc.

New Westminster Skytrain station is behind my building within 5 minutes walk. Shoppers, Safeway, LandMark cinema, TimHorton, Starbuck, A&W, Subway, BC liquor and other restaurants and shops are all near the skytrain station area. This is a unique neighbourhood that is very close to Skytrain while also has quiet and beautiful neighbourhood beside the Fraser River.

There is a long boardwalk right in front of my buildings beside the river, very relaxing and beautiful.

And if you go to the east side (pass the construction area), there’s another nice park called Pie West park, also has a boardwalk beside the river, it has more facilities.

And the River Market, although not too big, but it's cute, like a mini Granville Island, there’s a market and some local restaurants and shops.

In summer there are often different types of local events, e.g. Columbia Street Food festival, and farm market.

Food and drinks to recommend in the neighbourhood: (too many choices, just to list a few):

1. Craft Cafe, right in front of my building, high quality coffee.
2. The boat Hours, also just in front of my building, they have happy hour all day.
3. Piva Modern Italian, highly-rated Italian restaurant.
4. El Santo, very popular Mexican restaurant. Saturday night they have live music too.
5. Angelina’s Dutch Corner. One of the best place to have breakfast in Metro Vancouver.
6. River Market has several choices for good and inexpensive local food. Amaranthus for vegan (4.6 rating), Longtail Kitchen for Thai street food and Re Up BBQ and ice cream shop etc.
7.V-Cafe: vegetarian Vietnese food, 4.7 rating in GoogleMap
8.Banh Mi Bar: very tasty and in-expensive, 4.8 rating in GoogleMap
9. Columbia Street Sandwich, 4.8 rating in GoogleMap
10. For sushi lovers, I’ve been to Hyack Sushi and Sora Sushi House, they are all very good and reasonably priced.

All of these are 4+ rating on Google Map and best of all, all are within 10 minutes walk from my home!
