Grandview-Woodland apartment description

Enjoy Vancouver the way the locals do. Rent this centrally located, affordable, and comfortable alternative to a hotel. This 700 sq ft 1 BR, 1 BA suite located just off of trendy Commercial Drive home of funky shops and fine restaurants and 10 minutes from downtown Vancouver via public transit (skytrain). Stay in a vibrant, family-friendly neighbourhood with bakeries, coffee shops, delis, live music, grocery stores, parks, unique boutiques, yoga studios, community centres with ice rink, pool, natural lake, library, local festivals and events…all within blocks of the suite. Nearby are dozens of restaurants (vegetarian, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Lebanese, Caribbean, Vietnamese, Greek, Chinese, Ethiopian, Cuban, fusion, Thai). The Drive is a great place for anyone who wants to experience Vancouver culture.

We are centrally located and easily accessible by car, bus or sky train to everything you will want to do in the Vancouver area. It is a 10 minute bus/skytrain ride to downtown Vancouver including Chinatown, Gastown, shopping and theatres. We are 10 minutes by taxi to both cruise ship terminals and also the Waterfront station of the Canada Line sky train to and from the airport. It is 10 minutes to the entrance of the #1 Highway to North Vancouver which takes you to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal to Vancouver Island. The nearby Ironworkers Bridge gives you quick access to all the local ski resorts with beautiful hiking trails in the summer and the Highway to Whistler/ Blackcomb Mountains.

You will like this spacious suite, recently renovated with all new furniture. It sleeps 1-4 including the queen pull-out sofa. The kitchen is stocked with equipment for preparing a small quick breakfast or a fancier dinner. Enjoy TV or surf the fast broadband internet using wired or wireless connection. It is a comfortable alternative to a hotel. Perfect for anyone looking for a “home away from home” feeling in a short term stay. Fresh linens (guests do the changing) available for bookings over 7 days. Free street parking available.

Suitable for 1 – 4 non smoking adult(s). Smoking okay outside only. Free street parking is available 24/7.

East Vancouver/Trout Lake Farmers Market on Saturdays, May - October, designated bike routes, and rapid transit (Skytrain) and commuter bus lines to downtown and UBC area all steps away.

The 21 blocks of Commercial Drive from Venables at north end, to 13th Avenue at the south, over a mile long, are home to the most eclectic mix of businesses in the city. Of the more than 400 businesses on the Drive, the majority are single location, owner-operated, making our product mix, dining experiences, produce, entertainment and services completely unique.

This neighbourhood repeatedly receives the Georgia Straight Reader's Choice award as the best neighbourhood in the City. We've also been ranked one of the 10 hippest neighbourhoods in North America by Utne Reader.

Architecturally designed and newly renovated, modern, private, 1-bedroom suite in beautiful, quiet and leafy Commercial Drive/Trout Lake neighbourhood, blocks from children's playgrounds, and large park.

                              Year Purchased: 2000

                              About the owner: We have lived in this house for 12 years and recently completed the garden suite for others to enjoy. As residents of Vancouver for 20+ years, we know the city and surroundings well and are happy to assist our guests plan their travels in Vancouver and surrounding areas.

                              Why the Owner Chose Grandview-Woodland:
                              We are steps away from a major public transit hub, which can take you downtown in 10 minutes or across the city. There is no better transit hub in all of Vancouver. If you have a car with you, you can get to the highway to go north or east in no time. Local ski mountains are 45 minutes away, beaches are less than 20 minutes away, and we are a 7 minute walk to the best Saturday Farmers Market in SW British Columbia (May thru October).
