It is our sincere hope that guests of all backgrounds and cultures will feel welcome and safe on our quiet, tree-lined street exactly one kilometre from Canada Highway 1, 2 1/2 blocks from the Rupert Sky Train station, and 1 1/2 blocks from the Broadway bus lines for easy access to trendy Commercial Drive, downtown Vancouver Art Gallery, and other tourist hot-spots. We are equidistant from the beautiful campuses of UBC, BCIT, Vancouver Community College, and Simon Fraser Universities.

A kiadó hely

This space comfortably fits four people; you can squeeze a fifth person in if they are tiny enough to sleep on a loveseat or if you want to borrow a sleeping bag and foam mattress! (There is an aditional $50 charge for each guest after the first four guests).

BEDROOM: In this tranquil aqua and cream space there is a brand new firm queen bed fitted with cotton/linen blend sheets and multiple fluffy pillows. The bedroom is a peaceful space with candles and a raw cedar wall that will lull you to sleep with dreams of old-growth forests. This bedroom has a full closet with hangers, suit bags, shelves for storage, and a drying rack and clothespins for your delicate hand-washables, as well as your own laundry basket. There is a door to the bedroom with an old-fashioned hook and eye lock.

LIVING ROOM: The living room, decorated with First Nations artifacts, has one couch (which opens into a double bed) and a love seat. If you really want to squeeze in one more little one, they can sleep on the love seat (or in a sleeping bag on a floor mattress which we can provide if you prefer). Extra blankets are in the plaid basket and in the footstool/coffee table thingy. In the living room is where you will find some ENTERTAINMENT options: Lonely Planet Guidebook, Canadian authors, local history, First Nations art books, cards, games, a new Smart TV (Netflix!), and Wifi. We have more games upstairs, so if you have a favourite, let Katy know, as we just might have it. And if you want to lose your socks (a toonie!) challenge Katy to a game of Parchisi, our family favourite!

KITCHEN: There is a fully-equipped kitchen with refrigerator/freezer, stove, oven, microwave, toaster oven, blender (smoothies!), rice cooker, and coffee maker. You have pots, pans, cutlery, utensils, coffee mugs and made-in-USA glassware and made-in-France dishes and frying pan. A portable dishwasher is available for your use-- let your host know and it will be moved into the kitchen. Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, canola oil, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, coffee whitener, rice, flour, coffee, oatmeal, cream of wheat, cornmeal, pasta, spaghetti sauce, Mr. Noodles, peanut butter, jam, maple syrup, honey, sugar, a full complement of spices, tinfoil, parchment paper, and plastic wrap are all complimentary for your use during your stay. You will also receive a LIGHT breakfast (such as juice and pastries) for each morning of your stay. In addition, there is a convenient variety of snacks and groceries available for purchase in our honour pantry, and you are always welcome to bring in foods that you purchase -- there are several low-cost grocery stores within walking distance -- or why not get something yummy at the Farmers' market? There are also a number of food delivery options servicing our location.

WASHROOM: Just your standard bathroom with a toilet, shower, and sink. Sadly, there will be no long soaks in the tub during your stay; this is an eco-friendly shower-only washroom. However, we can point you in the direction of many local pools and hot tubs if you want to float in hot water. If you need to bathe a little one, please ask your host for the PORTABLE BASIN. There are fluffy towels, a hair dryer, a stool for smaller guests, and complimentary shampoo, hand soap,shower gel, and emergency toiletries (as well as a few larger specialty toiletry items available for purchase in case there is something you forgot to bring or run out of during your stay). Extra towels are in on the bottom shelf in a big square lidded tub marked "extra towels." Please put dirty towels in the wicker basket when you leave.

HALLWAY: Do you want to have a beach day or go on a picnic? Perhaps a concert on the Great Lawn in Stanley Park? Please use our portable picnic backpack and blanket, and/or the four folding chairs complete in carry sacks while you are our guest. (If you fall in love with the picnic backpack there are new ones available for purchase.) This is Vancouver, so you will find your complimentary umbrellas here as well!! Also in the hallway is our Souvenir Stand, where you can purchase Canadian souvenirs -- proceeds of the Souvenir Stand support your host family's eldest daughter, who is attending college in New Jersey. If you are looking for something special, please tell Katy, as she has more inventory upstairs-- including an original Hudson's Bay Company blanket!! Please note that the hallway is a shared space that your host may need to access in case of emergency (as it contains access to the circuit breakers, heater, and water heater) or to restock items from the private storage area. All care will be taken to inform guests by knocking and/or texting before the common area is entered by your host, as we do not want to disturb your privacy unless absolutely necessary.

YARD: There is a fenced back yard with trees, Muskoka chairs for lounging, and a barbecue. There is a children's swingset in the front yard (please supervise children closely). Dogs should be kept on leash and please pick up the poop!! Our yard is organic and no pesticides have been applied to the grass for ten-plus years. The door to your suite is a chalkboard for any artists who visit; there is another chalk board in the front yard and chalk is in the hallway and in the rural mailbox in the front yard-- we can't wait to see your creations! There are two great playgrounds and a nice park all within walking distance. Please feel free to use the barbecue in the back yard.


LAUNDRY: Please feel free to use the full-size washer and dryer conveniently located adjacent to your suite. We are in the process of installing a display about the history of the Chinese laundries in Canada as part of our laundry room renovation. You may use any of the soaps or stain removers free of charge while you are our guests.

WHAT ELSE? Well, this is Vancouver, renowned for outdoor adventures! Let us know if you want to borrow some sporting equipment. We have bikes, a razor scooter, tennis racquets, soccer balls and nets, an inflatable raft, water floats, sleds, tire chains for cars (in case you want to go up into the mountains in winter), camping equipment, etc. If there is something special you need, just tell us, we might have it!

Katie's unit is nicely appointed. We really appreciated the full size coffee maker with thermal carafe. The beds were comfortable and she worked very hard to make us feel welcomed. We especially enjoyed the fresh homemade Berry crisp she left in the fridge for us!

I had a wonderful time at Katy's place. The suite was absolutely perfect for two days in Vancouver. I picked her suite because I was entertaining a friend visiting from NYC. My intention was to treat him to some home cooked meals. Katy has an impeccable attention to detail. The lovely kitchen is fully stocked with everything needed for cooking. The dining area was perfect for dinner for two. The living room is comfortable and styled perfectly for a relaxing time away from home. The bathroom is also stocked with personal care and other items to make for a comfortable time away from home. Katy has thought of everything. The bedroom is beautiful, perfect bed all styled with careful charm and whimsy. The backyard has a gorgeous park like feel. We spent quiet moments sitting talking on patio chairs in the trees. Katy is a generous and kind host. She felt like a friend I've known my entire life even though I only bumped into her once. The cat and dog who live with Katy were kind and gentle friends to meet also.

Katy is like a long lost aunt who is waiting to welcome you with open arms to Vancouver. Her place is like home, with lots of well thought out bonuses like baking equipment, a pantry of free basics like rice and coffee, and an 'honesty pantry' that is stocked with the things you need to buy from the shops but don't have the energy to go out and get. The house is very close to public transport, coffee shops and a huge supermarket, and is in a lovely quiet location. I cant recommend Katy or her home enough!

We stayed at Katy's place on our 1st trip to Vancouver. When we met her, we knew we hit the Lottery! She has a heart of gold and her home is so inviting. My husband and I brought our young adult daughters to celebrate a few special life accomplishments and the accommodations were great! We loved the coziness and Katy had special little touches to greet us throughout our stay. We all agreed that we would highly recommend Katy's place to others!!

Katy's place was ideally positioned for our last night in Vancouver - in a quiet street, not too far from the airport. The basement space was quite basic but Katy's kindness, thoughtfulness and generous spirit shone through, with kindly and quirky little touches throughout. The bed was super comfortable with beautiful, laundered linen. We had an excellent night's sleep, possibly helped by the cedar wall!

I am so glad you liked it, sorry about the kettle, I am going out today to buy a new one! I hope you made it safely back to Hale. I visited Manchester when I was young -- I had done my English Literature specialty in Victorian Literature, specifically about the Industrial Revolution, so I wanted to see the mills and everything in person. It was really neat. Come back to Canada soon!!
