Matthew Chu purchased this House in 2017
Why Matthew Chu chose East Side
The location is really the best part of this property. The neighborhood has transformed over the last few years into a vibrant, colourful, 'happening' place filled with hundreds of restaurants, bars and boutiques. We simply go for a stroll outside our door and we have countless options available to us for entertainment, food and shopping. Free parking.
What makes this House unique
The house is also very central for getting around Vancouver from this location. We are a 12 minute cab ride to downtown Vancouver and the closest sky train station is 29th Avenue or Joyce-Collingwood is about a 8-10 minute walk away, and that will take you to every corner of the city. We are also a half hour drive from the local ski mountain (Grouse Mountain) and a 1.5 hour drive from Whistler Blackcomb mountain.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Very nice house
The house was very clean with high end appliances and bathroom. Don was very nice and let us put our luggage early when we arrived from the airport. There are two Skytrain stations about 10 minutes walk from the house, making traveling to the city center very easy.
There was plenty of room for four adults and a teenager.
The only issue we had was getting to a supermarket, since we didn't have a car. We later found there is a Safeway close to a Skytrain station on Commercial.
In summary great house, very good location.
Could fit a lot of people
Could have been one more bathroom because lots of people are using it. Big enough.
This is a very clean modern beautiful place. Don super nice and friendly and met us on our arrival. He took the time to show us the operation on the intertainment and heating systems. The pictures of the place are exact very bright and open concept. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding is exceptional and clean. Don kept all the walkways and driveway cleared as it was snowing on our arrival and stay. Our family thanks you for letting us stay in your home Don. I would recommend anyone to stay here on they’re stay in Vancouver. I next time my family comes to Vancouver I would definitely like to stay here again if available. Thank you again Don we had a wonderful first time stay in Vancouver.
Loved Our Stay In Vancouver
Our first trip to Vancouver was a great success partly due to our great accommidations at Mathews home! It was very clean, modern and had everything my family of 5 adults and 1 infant needed! The playpen was all set up ready for my grandson to sleep in when we arrived ! The beds are really comfortable with high end sheets and comforters on to keep us cozy warm! It's a ten minute walk to the skytrain which is awesome to take you everywhere !Don was more than accommidating with any of our questions and got back to us right away and even made a trip over to the house to make sure everything was in perfect order for our stay!
I would recommend this property to anyone who will be travelling to Vancouver and is looking for a great house for their accommadations! Jo Anne Clarke Lucan On.
This lovely rental suited us perfectly. The neighborhood is quiet but close to places to eat and shop. The home is comfortable and homey. Don was quick to respond to questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Beautiful Holiday Home/ Great Location
This home is beautiful, in a good area with great transport links, the skytram is only 5-10 mins walk away. Everything you could possibly need is provided, and i totally recommend this property. We were two families of 4 adults and 5 children ( ages 4-10), we rented both the upper house and lower house, and this worked great for us. The AC was great as it was very hot at that time, and the place is very spacious, super clean and great beds. The house felt very safe and quiet. Totally recommend. Also Don was great allowing us to stow luggage as a late check out for our flight, super quick replying for all queries.

SkyTrain is a public transportation train system in Vancouver that connects most areas in Vancouver.
The train is clean, easy to navigate, and inexpensive to travel around Vancouver.
The house is very conveniently located very close to the SkyTrain station.
For SkyTrain schedule:
Please check out TransLink SkyTrain Schedule online.
You will take the Expo Line to and from downtown Vancouver to house.
You can take SkyTrain from YVR Airport but if you are travelling with a big group and with a lot of luggage, it might be more convenient and less expensive to take a taxi.
To and from downtown Vancouver or other tourist locations:
-Take a SkyTrain. I would use SkyTrain when you do not have a lot luggage. It is only 8-10 minutes walk to closest SkyTrain station plus 12 minutes ride on SkyTrain (Expo line) to and from downtown Vancouver.
-Driving is distance is 9.3 km (5.8 miles) to and from Downtown Vancouver.
To and from Vancouver International Airport (YVR):
-Take a taxi or rent a car – it is 15.2 km or 9.4 miles. I would recommend this if you are travelling with a big group and carrying a lot of luggage.
-Take a SkyTrain – you will take Canada Line and transfer to Expo Line to go to the house. The closest SkyTrain station is about 8-10 minutes walking distance from the house.
To and from Canada Place Cruise Ships:
-Take a taxi - it is 5.8 miles or 9.4 km. I would recommend to do this compare to take SkyTrain because you are travelling with big groups plus luggage.
-Walk to SkyTrain station (8-10 minutes walk) + 12 minutes ride on SkyTrain to Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal.
There are parking spaces on the driveway or plenty of street parking.
