2 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 stories, 1000 sq ft, near VGH and Childrens Hospital

Comfortable, private 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2 patios (front and back) and 2-story townhouse available very close to VGH Hospital, Vancouver City Hall, and many transit options. Centrally located in Fairview, it's about a 10-minute bike ride to downtown, and walking distance to the Cambie corridor of restaurants and shops, as well as all the conveniences of Broadway. It's also nestled into a quieter area so great for sensitive sleepers, and a short stroll to some city parks and a 15 minute walk to the ocean.

There is a large master bedroom upstairs (queen bed), a medium sized downstairs bedroom off the patio (double bed), and a pull out couch in the living room so it can possibly sleep 6 if necessary. Both bedrooms have desks and can function as offices. You're also welcome to move the desks around to your comfort - make it your home. I'm the type of person who would enjoy coming back to a different configuration I haven't thought of.

Washer/dryer, dishwasher, utilities and WiFi are included. In the kitchen you're welcome to use my pots and pans, spices and condiments, as well as my bike which is handy to get around Vancouver.

Street Parking can be arranged for a reasonable extra fee - I have to get you a permit from city hall. Free parking available a 5 minute walk away.

While not a requirement, I would love someone willing to cat sit. I have is an amazingly friendly cat Merlin who cat lovers would fall in love with immediately. When I've rented the spare room through Airbnb, have the reviews say how awesome he is! You don't need to be around all the time as I have plenty of people willing to come over and feed him if you're away. But again, it's not a requirement - he has stayed in his second home when I've gone away before and he can do it again, leaving a cat-free home. Cat sitting will earn you a discount, however!

I am a world traveler and like traveling when I rent it out. For the summer I'm mostly interested in shorter term as I'll stay close to home. Starting from Oct, I'm open to longer term - up to 6 months.

About Me
I have a MSc in Computer Science and have traveled to most continents in the world. India is my favorite home away from home. I have friends in academia, keep learning, and regularly host interns at the local hospital as I'm only a couple blocks away. My home is filled with Buddhist art as well as masks that I've made. Right now I'm looking for people for between 3-6 months. I'm an expert at packing my stuff away, so you'll have a place with plenty of closet space and drawers. I want you to feel at home!
