Our home is central and quiet with lots of shops close by and super accessible transit to downtown, beaches, or UBC. The shared kitchen area is clean and well equipped and the full bathroom is hardly used. This is the ideal location for guests who like a short cab ride to the airport but still prefer downtown accessible via transit. HOUSE: Located near 65th Avenue and Granville Street. Upstairs, our home has three bedrooms, kitchen, and two bathrooms while the first floor area (where your private room is located) has another full kitchen, bathroom, and sitting area. COMMON AREAS: The first floor kitchen and bathroom are semi-private. We rarely use these areas and will give you as much privacy as possible. We also have a small greenhouse and enclosed backyard with raspberries, flowers, and vegetables. Feel free to do some gardening, or pick some raspberries to enjoy! The bathroom is hardly used - we have other bathrooms upstairs. There are complimentary basics - towels, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, etc. The fully stocked kitchen is a second kitchen, mostly unused by our family. There are complimentary basics - coffee, sugar, oil, etc. - plus a full grocery store is 3 blocks away. YOUR PRIVATE ROOM: Can accommodate 1 person - or 2 people including the pull-out mattress. The room has a small wardrobe closet, dresser, and chair. Your fully private room is well-lit, small, and clean. There is high-speed wifi and cable tv included. OUR FAMILY: We work full-time during the day and the children have school. Two of the children are highschool age and one attends elementary school. The youngest goes to bed fairly early, so the house gets quiet in the evenings. Our home is pet and smoke free so there is no smoking anywhere on the property. Location Coffee shops, groceries, lots of restaurants, and plenty of green spaces too! There is a large park and play ground nearby as well as the Fraser River Trail. Transit & Parking We are one block from Granville Street (downtown) bus and.5 block from the Arbutus Street (beach) bus. There is plenty of free street parking. If we are available, you can request complimentary YVR airport pick up or drop off, or (for an additional fee) ferry terminal pick up or drop off. This is entirely subject to our schedule and availability, so please inquire in advance.
