The Commercial Drive neighbourhood ... or The Drive as it's known, is one of the most vibrant areas in Vancouver. The street is laden with good cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops, with micro breweries dotted around the area.
The Lakewood Bikeway connects with a broad network of bike routes that cross the entire city ... it's a great way to get around. By foot the cottage is 2 blocks to public transit and minutes to shopping and restaurants in every direction. We're 40 minutes from YVR and 20 minutes from downtown by public transit. You will find many Car2Go's sprinkled around the neighbourhood.
As the cottage is small and parking is scarce this listing is not appropriate for guests with children, pets or vehicles. The bathroom is located in the main space behind a two full length curtains ... so it's really suited to solo travelers or couples who know each other VERY well. The immediate area is a family oriented place, please be quiet and respectful of our home and the surrounding neighbours.
No vehicles please (we have no on site parking and street parking is limited)

We are both professionals and have lived at this location for many years.
We enjoy exploring the world from our tandem bicycle. So far we've cycled in France, the Netherlands, Spain and Cuba.
The "urban cottage" is a reflection of the kind of place we like to stay ... an affordable, well-appointed nest in a good location.
