About Greg Oudman

I am a busy homeowner with two pint-sized dogs: a chihuahua/Jack Russell cross, and a wire-haired mini-dachshund.

Greg Oudman purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Greg Oudman chose Vancouver

My home is a modern, three level semi-detached house on a bustling street in East Vancouver. I live on the top two floors with my two small dogs, and the suite is a separate, completely private suite on the main floor of my home with separate private access.

Convenient cute little apartment with anything you may need!

  • 4 of 5

Clean property with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Perfect for two travelling together. The owner was very involved and the suite was ready a littler earlier so we could get in upon arriving in Vancouver. Close to a main skytrain station.

Fantastic studio!

  • 5 of 5

Greg's place is the perfect place to stay in Vancouver! His studio is equipped with everything you need (utensils, filtered water, extra.) No blow dryer or iron just as an FYI. His studio is about a 10-15 min walk from the railway, which takes you straight to DT in about 10 minutes. Greg was so helpful and always ready to answer any questions we had! I Would definitely stay here again :).

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the suite for 2 months and it was fantastic! Greg was the best host, checking in regularly to make sure all was going well in the suite and being very accommodating whenever I needed something. This is a great location if you enjoy all that East Vancouver has to offer. Free parking on the street, walkable to 2 skytrain stations and one block away from an express bus transit made it an ideal place to get anywhere I needed to be. The kitchen had everything for a long stay. Perfect home away from home. Will definitely be staying here again!
