The Space***PLEASE NOTE, WHITE ROCK, BC, IS A 30 MINUTE DRIVE SOUTH OF VANCOUVER***
Large, completely DETACHED Coach House mini-studio suite with 3 piece en suite bathroom (no tub) located in the heart of White Rock, on a VERY quiet street. 7 minutes walk to White Rock beach (you can see the water from outside the coach house), 5 minutes to 5 Corners shopping area, 2 minutes to public transit. THIS REALLY IS A PRIME LOCATION!!! Queen sized bed (with 3 inch memory foam topper), sofa, coffee table, clothes storage, flatscreen TV with cable, wifi, kitchenette (microwave, coffee maker, kettle, mini fridge and toaster oven--no stove or kitchen sink). If you want the privacy of a hotel room (ie: this is not a room in a house, it is a detached one room mini-studio suite) without the price tag, this would be perfect. Ideal for travellers, people in between homes, or anyone needing very private, temporary living space.
1)what is the kitchenette like??
It isn't a proper kitchen, but rather just a kitchen table with some appliances for very light food preparation. There is no stove or kitchen sink, so dishes must be done in the bathroom. It is fine for people on short stays who will be eating out most of the time, or for people visiting family/friends and eating elsewhere. It is not suitable for full food preparation.
2)Is there laundry?
There is no laundry, but guests who are staying longer than a week can arrange to access our laundry if needed. Complimentary laundering of all sheets and towels is provided for stays of longer than a week.
There is a ton of street parking available directly in front of the main house, and one dedicated parking pad for guests of the Coach House.
4)Is there an outdoor space?
There is no dedicated outdoor space for guests of the Coach House. That being said, there are MANY sidewalk cafes, parks, and of course the beach, where guests can enjoy the sunshine--all within easy walking distance.
5)Is there heat/air conditioning?
Of course there is heat--this is Canada!!! You control the temperature. But there is no a/c. The Coach House stays cool in the summer, and there are large windows that open. We also provide a fan.
6)Do you provide dishes/cups/etc..?
Yes, everything you may need for simple food prep etc. should be in the coach house, and if you need something that isn't there, simply call us, knock on the front door, or email/text, and you'll have it right away.
7)How much contact do we have with hosts?
The coach house DOES NOT share any entrance to the main house--it is its own little mini suite. You can see us as little or as much as you like. The door to the coach house is on a keypad, and we also provide a key, so you are free to come and go as you like. If you need us for anything, just knock on the front door of the main house, text, email or call. Generally, we find we barely even see or hear most guests as they are busy with their own itineraries. The coach house is private, and we respect guests' desire for this. We won't get in your way at all!!!
Guest AccessLaundry can be accessed for stays of longer than 8 days. Interaction with GuestsGenerally very little. We are available as needed. The NeighborhoodQUIET and safe neighbourhood. Getting AroundClose to several public transit options.
