Об этом жилье
While I sleep in my living room, you get my 150 sq. ft. bedroom with a Queen bed (new mattress), a 40" TV with Netflix/YouTube connected to a laptop for streaming. You will have full suite access, except while I'm sleeping. Although I don't work, I am out a lot, most evenings.
My corner suite has views over a park and the 19th century homes of Mole Hill, with the mountains and ocean in the distance.
Because we're sharing space, I prefer English speaking, "verified" guests with reviews.
My apartment is on the 14th floor, a south-west corner suite with a park and ocean view. It is clean, comfortable, convenient and continuously cooled by the breeze off the ocean. Its in "The Heritage" building on Comox Street.
From the bedroom, you do not have to go through the living room where I sleep to get to the bathroom or kitchen. It has a fully equipped kitchen but I eat most meals out. It has well stocked bathroom with new towels. My place would the ideal for a family member with a patient in St. Paul's Hopsital.
My 12 foot long south-facing balcony is the perfect place to watch the sunset over the heritage homes with the ocean in the background. The colours in the sky and out on the water can be magnificent some nights.
From the bedroom, you can get to both the bathroom and the kitchen without going through the living room while I am sleeping there. You will have access to my entire suite, except my living room while I am sleeping.
As schedules often change, and I do not want to ever leave a guest waiting around for me to meet them, I wish to accept only guests who are willing to pick up their keys at the KeyCafe in a nearby 7-11 convenience store if I am unable to greet you personally. The Keycafe, a service recommended by Airbnb.
3. Upload an Airbnb profile photo and provide a phone number AND email address."
Общение с гостями
I respect your privacy, but I am available to answer questions and offer suggestions, especially about the music that I enjoy, which is R&B, Blues, Classic Rock, Funk, Soul, Rockabilly, even Irish music. I appreciate lively, fun, affordable music that makes me feel like moving/dancing in casual, unpretentious venues and am happy to share what I know about the music scene in Vancouver if that's something you would be interested in.
Check-In/Check-Out can be flexible, however the standard times are 4pm check-in and 10am check-out. I definitely prefer greeting you personally, but in the event that I am unable to do so, I ask that you be willing to pick up the keys at the KeyCafe location inside the 7-11 convenience store at 904 Davie Street, less than 3 blocks away.
I am out a lot. So you know what to expect during your stay, my mornings usually start off with me spending time on my computer in the living room working on a music webpage page that I do for fun. I spend time on line coordinating the attendance of these music events with my music loving friends.
In the morning, I would be happy to share a simple breakfast with you. Or you can fix something for yourself. I provide basic breakfast items: coffee, tea, milk, juice, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, toast, eggs, peanut butter, honey and homemade jam.
After breakfast, I usually go to the Southlands area of Vancouver where I ride and care for horses, usually well into the afternoon.
Then I come home again to get cleaned up and organized to go out to meet up with friends at live music events. I support the venues that support live music by usually having my dinner out. If I don't go out, which is a rare night, I would usually have dinner in one of the very reasonably priced ethic restaurants along Davie Street.
I typically go out in the evening about 7pm or 8pm, and am usually home by 11pm on week nights, and around midnight on weekends.
If you are at my place while I am out, I would be happy to message you when I'm on my way home, so I don't wake you up or surprise you when I arrive. The noisiest part of me arriving home will be the opening of the door. I then sneak into the living room and go to sleep. There is FAR more noise in this area of downtown Vancouver then me tiptoeing into the living room.
Except when I'm sleeping or working on my computer in the living room, you'll have the run of the place, but not the use of my computer. As I already mentioned, there is a laptop in the bedroom for your use which is connected to the Internet, so you can stream whatever you like from it to the bedroom TV. Or you can connect your own device. I have unlimited data.
All that aside, I hope to get to know you a little and I am more than happy to try to answer questions you may have about the area. I have a large basket of brochures about tourist attractions in the kitchen.
Please don't hesitate to ask me anything.
I love Vancouver and I hope you do too!!
Другие важные подробности
***You will be responsible for both the cost FOB that allows you to come in and out of the building, as well as, the key to my suite #1401. If they are lost, the cost of their replacement will be deducted from your of the security deposit***
The exterior renovation of the building is virtually complete, but sadly the pool is under renovation this summer and will not be available.
GPS instructions always direct people too far along Comox Street, which is a one way road, so that if people miss the parking entrance they are stuck driving several blocks away before they can negotiate their way back.
Comox Street is only accessible from Burrard Street.
If driving south on Burrard, just turn right onto Comox Street across the bike lane.
If driving north on Burrard during rush hours, there is no left turn onto Comox, so what I do is turn left into the next alley after Comox. I turn my car around in the alley and then turn right back onto Burrard, and then right onto Comox Street.
As soon as you turn onto Comox Street, you will see a bike lane on the right side. Cars drive on the LEFT side of the road!!
Comox Street is only one lane wide, so not even the tinest car can turn around if you end up driving past the entrance to my underground parking. Please do not follow GPS directions as they take you past the entrance to the underground parking.
Here are my directions once you are on Comox Street:
1. Drive by the Century Plaza Hotel parking entrance
2. Drive by a small heritage red brick building.
3. You'll see that a green painted area on the road in front of two ramps going down to underground parking is painted bright (URL HIDDEN) remind you that its a TWO-WAY bike path. (Yes, the road is only one way... lol)
4. Turn into the second, left-hand ramp, which is on the west, closest to the building.
5. Use the little key to open the security gate.
6. Drive all the way to the end of the parkade and turn left.
7. After you turn left, my parking spot 62C is the first one on your left side.
8. You will need to use your fob to enter the not yet renovated basement where you can access the elevators.
9. Use your fob on the black square in the elevator.
10. I'm on the 14th floor.
1. Dishwasher can not be used.
2. Quiet after 11pm.
3. Smoking on balcony only.
4. Always pull down the white blind in the bedroom if you shut the blue curtains, because building allows only white window coverings.
5. No hair dye, no henna, no abrasives, no bleach, no chlorine, no comet to be used on the bathtub because it has been resurfaced. Use only Mister Clean if you wish to clean...but I would prefer you leave it for me to do. Thanks.
