2 b/rm 2nd floor condo just east of downtown. Walk to: stadium, LRT/bus, downtown, river valley, Little Italy, Shaw Centre, China Town, Rogers Place ++. See walk times below. Direct bus to W.E.M. Lively diverse neighbourhood. Very clean & tidy but relaxed home. Flexible check-in & out. Plenty of sit-down counter space in your room. Full kitchen privileges. I don't "serve breakfast" but there is always something for you: tea/coffee/juice, fruit, granola bars. Free on-street parking.
Quiet and private. Lots of extras to make you feel welcome: dedicated refrigerator and kitchen counter space, coffee press, tea and supplies etc., in suite laundry, iron. Cook, sit on the balcony - make yourself at home.
Only my bedroom and 1/2 bathroom are off limits. Large balcony with
lovely gardens below (in summer). Warm in winter. The kitchen is at your disposal with coffee, tea, and more available. Washer and dryer in the unit. Secure bike storage. Free street parking and you can use my stall during stadium events (restricted parking).
Other things to note
I do not accept third party bookings.
Single cot but guests tell me it is comfortable. There is limited closet space but lots of counters and other storage room for you.
Although it is a shared bathroom, I only use the shower on the few days I don't swim. I have my own 1/2 bathroom. All linens, mats etc. are separate.
I do not accept bookings for guests other than those verified by Airbnb - no friends, family etc.
Guests must have a recognizable photo of themselves on their profile.
Non smokers only.
Mutual respect and consideration (including my neighbours).
Tidy up after yourself.
Please take your shoes off at the door.
I aspire to be a true host and would love to introduce you to the neighbourhood and city. That being said, we can give each other as much privacy as space allows. It is up to you.
I am not just a retired library lady. I am an artist, writer, and woman on the go. I am struggling to learn French. Other people will tell you I have a good sense of humour. I look forward to a chance to host people from across the country and around the world and help you in any way I can. But if you want solitude, I am happy to provide that. I will, for the most part, be in residence but on occasion may be travelling so you would have the place to yourself.
