Welcome to Vancouver, the city awaits you! Your home away from home is situated in Southeast False Creek minutes from the downtown core and the local mountains. We are central to UBC, Emily Carr and all downtown campuses. We've hosted international students for years and love to keep that connection to the world. We are a family of three, a ssecond grader, a teacher and I work from home. We don't have pets but there are many in the building. Kids too! Your room has a very comfortable single bed, desk and ample storage. Bedding and fresh towels are included along with access to insuite laundry and a shared bathroom. We make every effort to ensure you are comfortable during your stay although you are responsible for keeping your room clean, doing your own laundry etc. I generally do the cooking as we're often home at dinner, however should you enjoy cooking we can talk. The cost of the room includes breakfast and a vegetarinan dinner which is great for busy students, right? You would prepare your own breakfast or if you're into into it, you can join us for a light morning meal between 7am and 8am. If you are not vegetarian, no problem but you'll need to BYOM. (buy your own meat :) ) We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your stay with us.
You have full access to our shared space and we will make every effort to ensure your comfort and safety. Do you like to cook? Great! We are happy to do that together. Take a stroll or borrow a book from our in-house library and then bring it up to one of the two rooftop gardens or our private patio. We are often home in the evenings and love to watch baseball and or Netflix. We hope you'd feel comfortable joining us in our common living space. There is wi-fi in our apartment and in the lobby of the building.
We appreciate students who love kids as we have a seven year old. It's important to us that you want to be part of our family and our community. We'd love to hear about your studies and travels and would enjoy getting to know you. We also respect your need for privacy.
Your cozy room is 2 blocks away from the seawall which boasts 20+ km of running and biking paths and 15 minutes to the best fresh food market in town. Granville Island is home to a great fresh produce market, theatres, artisan shops and restaurants. Our location is probably the best in the city if you consider that it is close to the downtown core but not so close that the noise will be an issue at night.
The train stations are a 10-minute walk either way which provides direct access to the major centres in the lower mainland. There's a bus stop around the corner and the seawall takes you where ever you want to go along the ocean.
In our lovely Village we have Urban Fare, a supermarket, community centre, London Drugs, Legacy Liquor Store, a bank and pub and two restaurants, one of which features 120 craft beer on tap! There are coffee shops galore, medical and dental clinics and new restaurants popping up all the time.
