Additional Location Information
We are located in Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, 6 blocks east of Chinatown and the exquisite Dr Sun Yat-sen classical Chinese garden. On your way to Chinatown you will pass the Strathcona Community Center. If you’re up early enough you can witness the Chinese people doing Tai Chi in McLean Park, and pass by a small but really beautiful Buddhist Temple. When you reach Chinatown you are half way downtown. Gastown is just north of Chinatown. One block to the east is the Ray-Cam Community Center, seven blocks east is the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Center, and Commercial Drive. We are next door to the Roman Catholic Sacred Spirit Center, Sacred Heart Parish and St Kateri Center. At the other end of our block is the Ukrainian Cultural Centre and around the corner is the Russian Hall and a small Russian Orthodox church. We are a 20-minute walk to Science World, Pacific Central bus and train station (VIA rail and Amtrak), and the Main St or Stadium Skytrain stations. For further transit info go to Translink.ca- use E Pender @ Campbell Ave as a departure point for trip planning. We are a block away from Hastings Street (Hwy 7a) which is a major transportation artery. The transit service from here is great. The following car share programs operate in our neighbourhood: Car2Go and MODO. We are 4 short blocks north of the Adanac bike route- leading downtown to the west or towards Commercial Drive to the East. Vancouver is scheduled to have a community bike share program in place by the summer of 2013. If your visit to Vancouver is to work or relax, you just might want to stay in Strathcona. Walk over to Union Market, a corner store unlike any other. They bake their own bread, and the tables outside are a great place to watch the cyclists whiz by.

Strathcozy - a real home from home
I really enjoyed my stay at Strathcozy. Richard and Frank went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, you couldn't hope to meet two kinder, nicer people. They are a real delight! They gave me lots of good advice about places to go and what to see and obviously love and are very proud of their home city.
As a traveller relying on public transport and foot power to get about, I found Strathcozy to be well placed on the edge of Chinatown, with lots of interesting things to see in the immediate neighbourhood and on the walk into downtown.
The apartment itself is spacious, comfortable and well furnished, as well as spotlessly clean, a real home from home with plenty of character and unexpected extras. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to family and friends and can only hope that my travels take me back to Vancouver again one day so that I can stay there once again!
I was so very impressed with my stay here, the place had everything a traveler needed. The bed was extremely comfortable, I have a horrible back and I had no pain at all with the bed. I was able to wash my clothes, wash dishes I used, make my coffee and watch movies on netflix durring my evenings. It was a beautiful home and the owners were an absoulte delight.
I would rate this place a 10 all around and it was so much more comfortable then a hotel/motel. I look foreward to returning to Vancouver and can only hope that this place will be availbe durring my next visit.
