roger brooks purchased this studio in 2001

Why roger brooks chose East Side

We originally rented this property & later had the chance to buy it. Prior to this we lived not far away & wanted to stay in the area because it is a great neighbourhood for raising a family.We were attracted to the heritage style of our house & knew it had great potential. It was built in 1910. The detached studio at the rear we built in 2007.

What makes this studio unique

There aren't many unique detached places available for vacation rental in such a centrally located area. It is just like being in your own house with a garden!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have dreamed of a more perfect hideaway for some R&R during our home renovations. So peaceful. Thank you!

A perfect place to get started in Vancouver. Great for exploring the city neighborhood experience, but close enough to downtown to do stuff there. Enjoyed my stay. Thanks!

Car: not necessary

We are ideally situated in the middle of the interesting area of Mount Pleasant or South Main. Great boutique shops, restaurants, bars only one block away. Main street has great character with lots of unique shops & restaurants. Loads of good coffee places & snack bars. There are lots of ethnic restaurants in the area & we can provide a list of our recommendations.

It is easy to get downtown using public transit. The Canada Line train is a short walk away or you can take the bus to the station. This will take you downtown or out to the airport. We can pick you up at the King Edward Canada Line station if you are coming from the airport & if you arrange this ahead of time.
