A completley modernized century-old home with all conveniences located in Vancouver's oldest and hippest neighbourhood.
Another sunny day in paradise? Sit on your balcony and enjoy the view of the garden down below.
Raining? Embrace it-listen to it patter on the roof and skylights of your vaulted ceilings.
Enjoy the radiant warmth of your heated floors- or your gas fireplace.
We know what we would like to find when we travel. Need an extra cookie sheet or serving dish? Did you forget something? Or did we? We're downstairs- just ask.
We provide extra quality linens and stock our dispensers with quality toiletries.
For entertainment- a 42' flat screen TV with a PVR, digital channels and a quality sound system, a clock radio with an ipad docking station. And of course, a stocked bookcase and quality Canadian Magazines.
For work- a notebook desk with ample outlets, usb charging ports, wireless internet access, phone service with free North American calling (international calling by arrangement)- and those little things you need- scotch tape, staples, etc.
Our home was completely rebuilt with the finest mechanical systems, eschewing granite countertops in favour of soundproofing between units, a Heat Recovery Ventilation System (which constantly brings fresh air indoors), and we are never out hot water.
How about a full size washer and drier- and even a shoe drier and lock box for your valuables?
We have tried to provide every comfort to make your stay with us enjoyable.
We think you will really like Strathcozy!
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.
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.
