Located almost exactly in the geographical centre of Vancouver. One bedroom with queen bed and full bath. Tasteful furnishings. The suite is newly renovated owing to a flood. All of the flooring is new with wood flooring. There is a gas fireplace in the living room with a modern entertainment unit consisting of a flat screen TV with High Definition cable subscription. Other amenities include unlimited local telephone access, stereo and DVD player. The owners live upstairs and they are dedicated gardeners. Guests will have access to the backyard gardens, patio and barbeque. Due to the fact that there is only one bed in the suite, we feel that it is really best suited for two people.
We are ideally located half a block west of BC Women and Children's Hospital. Our proximity to Oak Street means that we are one bus ride to downtown. Oak Street is also the access point to the southern ferry terminal as well as the US border. We are a short walk to local services.
The neighbourhood we are located in is called Shaughnessy, home to some of the most historical mansions in Vancouver. Here is a description of the area:
One thing that we would like to share with potential guests is that the suite is located in our home. We have two young boys aged 2 and 4. The suite is located below our living and dining room. Our boys wake up at 6:30 in the morning and we are out of the house by 7:45. We return home at 5 in the evening and they go to sleep at 7:30. During the times when they are out of the house, you can expect the suite to be dead quiet. When our boys are home, there will be noise during meal times. If you demand absolute peace and quiet, this is probably not the best choice for you. However, if you are tolerant of some noise, you will find that this is a great venue to base yourself out of while in Vancouver.
The suite is very modern and equipped with all of the modern conveniences that one could desire. It has a 37' flat screen tv with cable, a DVD player, and a stereo system with multi-CD changer. A variety of books are also available for your reading pleasure.
The kitchen is clean and fully stocked for all of your cooking needs. There is a full sized refrigerator, stove and oven, microwave, coffee maker and toaster....moreless

The area of Shaughnessy where the suite is located is an almost entirely residential neighbourhood spanning about 447 hectares in a central locale. It is bordered by 16th Avenue to the north, 41st Avenue to the south, Oak Street to the east, and Arbutus Street/West Boulevard to the west. The neighbourhood is characterized by the affluence of its residents and is the wealthiest neighbourhood in Vancouver. It is also the site of many historical homes, especially in First Shaughnessy. 51.5% of the neighbourhood's homes were built before or during World War II, compared with 20.8% for the city at large.
The neighbourhood was created in 1907 by the Canadian Pacific Railway, then the largest real estate developer in Canada.
