Our Garden Guest Room is a double room to the rear of our house, overlooking the garden. It is bright and sunny. The room has its own heating so you can control the temperature during the winter months and a ceiling fan to keep you cool during the summer. The room has a double bed. There are plenty of towels, bath robes, slippers & hair dryer in the room. We can arrange for you to use the washer and dryer if you need to, and the iron & ironing board anytime.
You're very welcome to use the family TV room (cable TV, DVD player and Apple TV). We offer a 'help-yourself' breakfast in the morning (cereal/toast/coffee/tea/juice/yoghurt). Feel free to make yourself tea & coffee in the kitchen anytime. We will give you a key to the main front door, a key to the side entrance and a key to your room.

We are very happy to help you find your way around Vancouver and offer suggestions of places to visit if you'd like. We enjoy meeting new people, so if you want to sit in the kitchen sharing tea and cookies you would be very welcome. We also appreciate that some guests would prefer their own company and activities. Our aim is to do all we can to make you comfortable in our home, while respecting your privacy.
We are conveniently situated to both Vancouver General Hospital and Children's Hospital for guests who are in Vancouver to be near family or friends who are there.
We want you to feel comfortable and 'at-home' with us, so we try to keep rules to a minimum. We ask that you wear slippers or socks in our home (no shoes or bare feet). We have slippers here for you to use. We provide breakfast each morning, which we eat in the kitchen. We love our busy international family but with no separate dining-room, it is not possible for guests to use the kitchen to prepare & cook their own meals (lunch/dinner). There are many cafes and restaurants within walking distance to explore and enjoy. We are strictly no-smoking in the house or on the property as a member of our family has asthma. We ask that you be respectful of the other family members sharing the same bathroom and living space by keeping noise to a minimum after 10pm and by keeping showers to a reasonable length of time.
From Vancouver, Canada. We have lived in UK, Kenya and Canada and love exploring new places. We have 5 adult children and 3 grandchildren. We have hosted international students for many years, so you may meet folks from around the world in our home. We love meeting new people and try to create a warm and welcoming place for our guests where they can relax and be 'at home'.
