Our House was built in 1908 and the loft offers a wrap around view of all three mountains with a full view of the City of Vancouver. In the summer its like sitting in the tree tops! while winterscapes enthrall. [PLEASE NOTE, we are not able to accomodate guests requiring Cda Customs 14 day quarantines. Sorry!] We are nestled in the historic Mount Pleasant District. Your ensuite bathroom ensures privacy and the loft kitchenette is great for light meals. The outside deck tops it all off!

Lo spazio
1905 Neo-Edwardian Heritage House with modern loft, outside deck, ensuite bathroom with tub/shower, TV, internet, real bed, mountain views. Couch has pullout bed allowing for 2 separate beds (single and double). Full Bathroom is ensuite - very private ;-) We are only 6 blocks from Olympic Village- which now boasts shopping, two micro brew pubs and fabulous views along False Creek. We are also 2 blocks from Main & Broadway which is host to dozens of avante garde restaurants (not all expensive), clothing, curio and antiques shops as well. Latest News: We are now becoming known as the brewery district! There are 5+ Craft Breweries opening up around us - with in house tours and tastings to follow shortly. Only 7 Blocks from Cambie and Canada Line ( your direct connection from the Airport). Our Hot tub may be available. Breakfasts with host while not guaranteed are the norm. (French Roast Coffee, oatmeal and fresh fruit served.)

Past guests love our loft as it is just so central to everything - and the loft is very private to our guests. In the summer you are surrounded by trees and peek a boo views of the mountains. After the leaves drop in the fall, you have a wrap around vista of mountains and sparkling city lights. I am happy to help guide you to various places in Vancouver. Do you Ski, hike, run or trail run? Lets go - i'll get you to the best of the best.

p.s. street parking is available (but in high demand) if you have a car. I'll tell you the best place to park your vehicle. Got questions? Just send me an email. See you soon. Steve. ;-)

Hot Tub, front garden, rear deck bbq available on request. Downstairs kitchen occasionally by appointment ;-).

I enjoy meeting all my guests yet believe everyone needs their space - including me, the host. I'm available to help direct you - but you are largely king of your own castle!

Mt Pleasant/City Hall/Main Street has become a real mecca of boutiques, antique stores, unique eateries and..... breweries! Brass Neck Brewery, 33 Acres (around the corner), Parallel 49, Main street and the Beer Hall in a huge heritage hall building and The Craft Restaurant (in the Olympic Village) offer an incredible choice of freshly brewed artisan beers. yummmmm!

Walking is great and transit is 3 blocks away (7 to the Canada LIne and the airport). We will have a new subway stop one block away - but not until 2020/21.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Up to 2 Guests will have access to full Loft (bathroom, bed, couch, kitchette, internet, TV, etc.) We are easy going and want to make a great experience for every guest. PLEASE NOTE - we cannot be a 14 day quarantine location for those who have that requirement. Our Loft is not suitable. Thank you.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
We just were awarded Heritage Status for our Neo Edwardian house which protects it from any major changes by any owner in the future. The City of Vancouver now cherishes its heritage properties and we are glad to have this designation.



Opinion: Airbnb brought the world to my home
The current debate around home sharing has been largely unfair to modest-income homeowners like me who want to share their homes with guests.

Below is a cut and paste version (photo won't paste in) from the Vancouver Sun Op Ed that i did in 2016 - and all true. Enjoy! sd

The current debate around home-sharing has been largely unfair to modest-income homeowners like me who want to share their homes with guests.

We’re defending the right to make a little bit of extra money on space in our homes, space that wouldn’t be otherwise used, space we can share to help pay mortgages and expenses.

For me, it all started on a cross-country train ride in 2010. I met a lovely couple from Quebec City who helped shorten the long distance with good conversations and entertaining stories. The husband was the former speech writer for René Lévesque and we immediately hit it off. Months later, he asked if he and his wife could take me up on an offer to visit Vancouver and stay in my home.

I live in the historic Mount Pleasant neighbourhood near Broadway and Main, the heart of what used to be the industrial centre of Vancouver. It’s now a burgeoning, gentrified neighbourhood, home to artists and writers, and a number of smart boutiques, eateries and outdoor patios.

Needless to say, the couple enjoyed their stay so much that, before I could offer protest, the ex-speech writer stuffed some money in my pocket and told me to keep it.


The Quebec couple’s visit was really a catalyst for more changes in my life that moved me to become an Airbnb host. Shortly after the 2010 Olympics, I had to take on a care-giving role for my father, who was 85 years old at the time. He required a higher level of care, so I could not venture far from my home and was essentially homebound.

To help pay the bills, I filed my application for Airbnb and helped their photographer take some professional shots. It was easier than I thought it would be and my dad was surprisingly accepting and welcoming of the guests.

In many ways, Airbnb brought the world to me in my new care-giving situation. In spite of my self-imposed confinement, I was able to meet wonderful and interesting people from all around the world and live their journey through their stories. When it’s my turn to travel the world, I hope my guests will welcome me into their homes.

My father died in 2011. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity that Airbnb provided me. Not only was I able to earn extra income to help support my dad, but it brought us closer together, both physically and emotionally, in the months before he died.

For me, Airbnb isn’t just about renting out a room, a bed or a space. I’m sharing my life with my guests, a very local and personal experience that they wouldn’t otherwise have. Most of my guests, about 80 per cent, stay with me in my home for more than one month, sometimes longer, and long-standing friendships do happen.

The loft in my home has always been extra space for my friends and family. Over the years I have come to regard my Airbnb guests as friends, too.

Airbnb hosts are really neighbourhood ambassadors. I provide my guests with recommendations on where to eat, where to shop, even where to park. While my guests don’t expect me to be their personal tour guide, they are deeply grateful for my local insight for things as simple as the best way to get to where they want to go in the city.

The vast majority of homeowners renting rooms like me are doing so on a part-time basis, renting space out for 90 days or less of the year.

Airbnb is making it possible for thousands in Vancouver to afford to stay in their homes. Fifty-three per cent of Vancouver hosts report being able to afford to stay in their homes because of the money they earned through Airbnb.

I would like my story to shed some light into a homeowner’s perspective of Airbnb. The City of Vancouver survey, available on their website, is a good way to voice your opinion. The deadline to fill it out is end of the day Wednesday. Please consider filling it out and sharing your thoughts.

Home-sharing really works — I hope you agree.

SoMo (South main) has become incredibly popular with so many eateries, at least 5 breweries within walking distance, views of our mountains, antiquing, skateboarding, walks along the famous false creek at the Olympic village - what more could one ask for?

Easy going - and proud to share our house and our city. Good coffee usually on in the morning - NEW! Breakfast available - either as self serve in the loft, or come down and enjoy what we have available. We are surrounded by boutique coffee shops and craft breweries! imagine that. I know the city well - so am happy to make suggestions on where to go, what to do, local festivals, events, etc. Its good karma right? I trail run in the mountains, hike, jog, ski, bike, crossfit, pilates, yoga,etc. You are more than invited to come along. I'm also a hash house harrier - so you can join me on our weekly runs if you like. Do as much or as little - its your show. Have a super day!
