This site allows you to look at availability of short term accommodation in Vancouver, pick your dates and then send a booking request directly to the owner. You can book homey, affordable accommodation for you or your family and guests without having to sign up for an airbnb or vrbo account or pay a commission. Costs are set by the individual owners, but you can view their availability right here on this website and send a request for the dates you want to one or more locations.
All guest houses (and condos) have been verified with an in person visit before being added to this site. They have been screened to make sure they are licensed by the city of Vancouver. Each also agrees to an inclusive code of non-discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation / gender identity. Eco conscious features such as solar power, recycling, composting and bicycle parking are also noted in the listing.
