About the property

Cherry View

- A sun-filled top floor studio!

- Arboreal views from a private deck!

- Across from a park with a community garden and tennis courts!

This quiet suite is located near one of the hippest parts of Mount Pleasant, but with a homey air.



Cherry View is a self-contained suite. The kitchen, bedroom/living room and bathroom are solely yours to enjoy, accessed by your own entry off your private deck.

The dine-in kitchen comes equipped to prepare meals and leads directly onto a large deck that catches the morning sun. Enjoy your morning coffee and catch a peekaboo view of the mountains.

Your bedroom/living area with south-facing windows contains a double bed, a seating area, a small desk and dresser. Perfect for 1 person or a couple. Lots of closet space!

The bathroom is actually two rooms. There is a larger room with the sink and the bathtub with glass shower doors. It has a translucent window to let natural light into the shower and the rest of the room without sacrificing privacy. There is a smaller, separate room for the toilet.

Because of the private third floor entry, guests MUST be comfortable climbing stairs, as the suite is on third floor of our house.



It's a 2-minute walk to a bakery, artisan coffee, art gallery and Les Faux Bourgeois, one of Vancouver's top french restaurants.

A 10-minute walk to Main street with more cafes, bars, grocery stores, bakeries and shops to visit.

A 5-minute walk takes you to Broadway to catch the #99 and #9 to Kitsilano, UBC, VGH and Commercial Drive.

Around the corner, the #8 bus transports you to downtown and the #19 whisks you to Stanley Park.



Wifi is included.

Coin laundry is available on the ground floor of the house.

Plenty of street parking.

Linen will be changed bi-weekly.


No smoking. No pets. Only mature, considerate guests. The owner lives on site.

About Craig + Linda

Travelling is GREAT!

We travel and explore our big blue planet whenever we can. Sometimes we travel for the sights, the sounds, the tastes; for the people, the customs, the landscapes. There is really so much to see in this world of infinite opportunities.

We've had a lot a fantastic experiences in magical places with amazing people over the years that made our travels fun and memorable. As hosts, we hope that we too can help others have enjoyable times exploring Vancouver, or at least point you in the right direction!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“If you want to stay in a great space near a great part of town...this is it! There is no TV but since it is right by a park, the stream of people walking by provided great people-watching moments. The neighborhood is quiet but yet you are close to grocery stores, restaurants, and pubs. You can walk anywhere or grab a bus. I plan on returning to Vancouver and would love to stay there again. The owners made me feel at home...actually, like part of the family! You can't go wrong in selecting this place.” (From Melissa's review on AirBnB)

Perfect location

We enjoyed our stay in this cozy place! We like the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. We found it convenient for downtown and back to the airport, as well. The hosts are very accommodating, thanks Craig and Linda!

Lovely Accommodation in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Great Studio apt on top floor of house in Mt. Pleasant; nice neighborhood near downtown Vancouver. Close to several bus lines, and short walk to Main St. with many shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Owners Craig and Linda very nice folks and extremely helpful with suggestions on activities, dining, and anything we asked. And the unit has a fully equipped kitchen, as advertised, making it easy and convenient for stays of a few days or weeks. We would definitely stay here again, and certainly recommend this place for anyone coming to Vancouver- particularly if you like to stay in a neighborhood where you can meet locals and see how they live.

Rental and owner far exceeded expectations

  • 4 of 5

This studio was the perfect little place to stay. Craig and Linda were friendly, welcoming and helpful from answering my questions before booking, introducing themselves and offering tips about the neighborhood when I arrived to wishing me well after my stay had finished. Suite had everything you could ask for, and was clean. The laundry downstairs proved to be handy and I found street parking to be easier than expected. A short walk to Main st. gave access to some neat coffee shops that I enjoyed (JJ Bean and 49th parallel). Also found walking down to the Olympic village and the south side of False creek to be much closer than expected.

My husband and I were staying for one month and we had an amazing time there. We have nothing to complain about. Linda and Craig are wonderful people, very friendly and received us in the best way possible. We definitely recomend who is going to Vancouver to stay in Cherry View Suite. We are sure you are going to have a lovely stay.

Excellent stay, definitely highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment for one month. Absolutely great location, about 15 minutes by car to the center, but also multiple bus routes nearby that can take you to the center quickly. There are also multiple coffee shops, bars an restaurants about 10 minutes walk away.

The apartment has everything you need for a great stay! Big enough for a couple and really clean.

The owners are great, extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. They were happy to give tips on sights to see and on job searches.

I highly recommend this studio.
