We love our country, province and city- and love to welcome visitors.
We travel a lot ourselves, and we know what it's like to be impressed or disappointed with accommodations. We have created a welcoming, comfortable, clean place where visitors will feel at home.
We are the type of travelers who want to be surrounded by locals and to get the feel of the place we are visiting and what it might be like to live there.
We don't want to jump off a tour bus, have our picture taken beside a Totem pole, then get on the bus to the next photo op.
We want to understand the Totem Pole- who carved it, and where are they? What does it mean? How did it end up in Stanley Park?
If you are our kind of traveler, Strathcozy is you kind of place.
One thing we really hate about travel- places that raise their rates during busy times. What's that about? We will never do that.
We are two straight-friendly gay men who have lived together in Vancouver for 40 years.
Nous parlons francais.
Und wir sprechen ein bischen Deutsch.
Hablamos tambien espagnol un poco.
Richard Dennis purchased this apartment in 1988
We purchased our home in this neighborhood because of its close proximity to downtown. We are both cyclists- our primary mode of transportation in the city.
We are a 40-minute walk or 10-minute cycle ride to Granville and Georgia Streets- the center of downtown Vancouver.
Our neighbours are really nice people. Most are socially and environmentally conscious, and share our city's ambition to be the world's greenest city.
Strathcona has been designated a Heritage area by the City of Vancouver. Older buildings are protected and new development must conform to guidelines that maintain its late-Victorian character and charm. A highly desirable neighbourhood in a highly desirable city.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has rated Vancouver as the third most livable city in the world, and its spectacular natural setting makes it one of the world's most beautiful cities.
It is also a tolerant, diverse city. It is impossible to be a resident of our city and not have an acquaintance or friend who is from a cultural background that is completely different than yours. The multiculturalism here is amazing. There are people from everywhere in the world- it would be hard to find a culture, ethnicity or religion that isn't represented here, and everyone gets along
The suite we are offering is truly beautiful. High ceilings, lots of light and quality finishes lend an atmosphere of coziness and warmth.
Our strict non smoking, no candles, no incense and no pets policy together with our ventilation system, hardwood and tile floors (only the stairs are carpeted) all add up to fresh, clean air. No need for chemicals to mask odors. Ideal for those prone to allergies.
