About the Homestay
I live alone with my cat "Jimmy" who is an indoor/outdoor cat. There is a spare bedroom in my garden suite that is right on the Seymour River in North Vancouver. There are four Western Red Cedar decks that take you right to the water which is 100' away from the front door. It's a beautiful natural setting and a very comfortable place to live. There is a washer and dryer in the unit, high speed internet/WiFi and the room has a large flat screen TV with a long HDMI cable for your laptop. There is also an office in the room and windows that open for a river view. Heated floors and your own thermostat.
There are shops and restaurants nearby within 2-3 km. There is a Real Canadian Superstore 2.5 km's from the house where you can buy groceries, etc. at a good price. It's a pleasant walk, 10 minute bike ride or a 5 minute drive. It's a lovely neighborhood! I do have a car, if needed for a $20 flat fee anywhere in North Vancouver if my schedule allows it (longer commutes are negotiable and less than a taxi). The bridge to downtown is right next to the Superstore. Downtown Vancouver is a 10-15 minute drive. The bed is a Queen Size and there is a BBQ. The deck is fully furnished for outdoor living. Hiking trailheads are at the end of the street about 0.5 km from the house. It is a beautiful area of the world. Oh yes and I just added your very own fridge in the room.

About the Area

There is lots of public transit (bus stops & Phibbs Exchange) close by so transportation is not a problem. Also, I have a car.
