International Home:
Check in time is 3:00pm and check out time is 11am local time.
It’s a friendly big Red house on a safe, convenience , central residential East Vancouver Kensington / Cedar Cottage area. Bus stop near by, 1 minute walk from a bus stop to downtown, UCW, Langara college, shopping malls. 2-7 mins walk to buses that take you to UBC, BCIT, UCW, Langara College, and big shopping mall,. 5-7 mins walk to Groceries , Supermarket, Banks, Library, Service Canada, Parks, restaurants, convenience store , 7-11, Swimming pool Elementary school, and Community Center .
There are 3 different suite in this big red house. You will be sharing the same house with me, landlord and her adult son. I love to eat good food. People call me the Foody Queen. My favourite food is Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Italian, Caribbean and Persian,
I’m retired and my main job now is to look after this International home to make everyone coming from abroad to feel as comfortable as possible away from home .
Take note: Please have your fee/rent ready when you arrived . You have to pay me a half month rent deposit if you’re staying more than 3 months. It will be returned to you when you move out upon nothing is broken or property is not damaged. That’s the rental rules in Canada.
From the past 10 years, I’ve had wonderful International people from France, UK, Ireland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Indonesia, Dubai, Iran, Japan, Korea, Jamaica, Vietnam, Nepal, USA, Russia , India, Turkey, Palestine ,and 2 Ghana students just arrived . It’s a great experience to know and learn from different cultures and food.
My rules in my comfy home is to clean after yourself! You’re living in a sharing environment so if you cook, clean all your dirty dishes and kitchen counter and stove right away. IIf you used the bathroom, clean right away so the next person can use a clean bathroom too! Take your garbage out when it’s full. Also keep the noise down after 10pm . Simple,..,Use the common sense.
** Please bring your own personal cleaning supplies : Example; shampoo, soaps, laundry detergent, dish soap, cleaning supplies etc.. There’s a cheap dollar store near by.
Thanks everyone ! Quinn

    I came to Vancouver from Germany for a few months, I had a nice stay with Quinn and Quinn as a landlord is also very friendly and nice and answers all questions that arise. The accommodation is close to a bus station and it is not so far for shopping. That's why it's quite easy to get to the city center, which is very pleasant

    What made this homestay truly special was the care and attention from the host. She went above and beyond to make sure I had a great stay, from recommending local attractions to helping me with transportation.

    Quinn was really communicative and always ready to help. The room is cozy, and the house is close to several bus stops which take you right into the city!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
