...just 20 steps to the vibrant Commercial Drive area is our newly renovated three level house. This house is multipurpose and has maintained the basic simple form of old early 1900s and added the postmodern feel to it.
It contains three floors, each fully equipped with all the amenities including laundry facilities.
Vancouver's up-and-coming Commercial Drive is renowned for its ethnic shops, restaurants and people. In the heart of this charismatic and busy neighbourhood stands an artist-inspired three-storey, six bedroom guest house. This guest house features the INUKSHUK LOFT inspired by a stunning natural ambience of West Coast and its native art, the BIJOU APARTMENT inspired by old cinema and diverse all-year round festivals performed in this neighbourhood and the Domain apartment, influenced by the milieu, flavours and scents, of the multicultural presence in the Commercial Drive international quarter.
Fun!!! Funky!!! Fabulous!!!
The INUKSHUK LOFT is a beautifully designed contemporary one-bedroom apartment with a separate street entrance. Designed as an open living space, the loft allows a flow between the living area, eating nook and kitchen, all with generous natural light. Dropped rich wood ceilings create a sense of room division without compromising space, yet adding to a warm ambience. The Tiffany-inspired chandelier is a highlight in the living area and its colours and design are reflected in the loft’s inclusive décor. The kitchen fits perfectly in a sensible layout where the cooking area is easily maneuverable and nicely accented with a glass-tile mosaic backsplash. The French doors lead from the kitchen out onto the extensive upper deck, expanding the indoor/outdoor living space. The generous-sized bedroom with its low-platform bed features vaulted ceiling and dynamic wall colors. An antique-inspired computer desk adds a contrasting touch to the contemporary atmosphere. Storage space is paramount in this apartment and it is provided by two unusually deep storage areas both hidden behind contemporary dark-stained, opaque glass sliding panels.

Our stay in Vancouver was a great and exciting experience, and that was in part because we stayed in this great place, in the middle of the colorful and beautiful Commercial Drive area. The house’s design is exquisite, just stunning, and is fully furnished. If you are planning a trip to Vancouver, don't hesitate and stay in this beautiful house.
