Living room and main dining area with fully reclining Lazy Boy-style sofas and wood-burning fireplace
This is the wonderful, spacious, family home enjoyed by three kids, a photographer/musician mum, and a school teacher dad. After a day out exploring, you can make yourself at home, relax, put your feet up, and have a beer. You're home away from home!
Big family home with 3 bedrooms up, 2 bedrooms down, plus an IKEA double sofa bed in comfy downstairs room. We are just steps from Burnaby Mountain Urban Trail. Hardwood floors upstairs and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Lovely large, quiet back garden with BBQ to enjoy the summer. There's an extra kitchen and toilet downstairs, so it is really convenient when running in from the back garden to get food or drink for the BBQ.
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs - 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, and a smaller room with bunk beds used by our children.
There are two small single-bed rooms downstairs and a large "music" room with a lovely Ikea sectional sofa bed that sleeps two. There's also a kids' playroom downstairs where we can set up an additional bed if required. If you have kids and they are comfortable sleeping on air beds, there's lots of room to lay them out. WITHOUT us setting up the additional bed downstairs in the kids' playroom, the house sleeps 10 people in beds and the soda bed. We have had 17 stay - a mix of adults and children.
Downstairs there is a laundry room with toilet, a small kitchen with sink, stove, and refrigerator.

Wifi, basic cable, local phone, laundry etc all included to make your stay easy, convenient, and affordable. We DON'T HAVE A DISHWASHER, so it's old-school style washing dishes in the sink! Our house is fantastic, BUT it isn't one of those brand new Master Home Builder houses with a jacuzzi tub etc. Real, ordinary people live here and we really love it. If you care that the garage could do with a coat of paint then this isn't the place for you.
There are numerous movie theatres / restaurants / grocery stores / pools / rec centres within 5-15 minutes drive of the house.
My wife's mother lives locally and will be available if you have any problems. She manages apartment buildings in Vancouver so is experienced and resourceful when dealing with housing-related issues.
Nestled at the foot of Burnaby Mountain, Simon Fraser Uni, and steps from an urban trail. Safeway, Shoppers Drug, liquor store all located in Kensington Plaza 1 minute drive away.

100m to the #144 bus which takes you to the skytrain.
Relax and live in our well lived-in house. No need to tiptoe around - yes, you can set cups down almost anywhere in the house and yes, you can keep your shoes on if that's what you want.
If you are out in the back garden please be respectful of our neighbours and play music at a reasonable volume. They have never complained, even when we had 17 staying last summer, so i imagine they are quite tolerant.
Our cat will be staying with a friend for the summer. If you want to bring a pet that is OK so long as they don't bark incessantly, tear the place up, or pee!
Keith and Layla's home was perfect for our family vacation. We easily had 6 adults and 4 kids together under one roof comfortably. They were very quick with their communication and they accommodated our requests. Their home has so much character and personality. We loved looking at all the family photos on the walls. Their back yard was gorgeous and big. We ate mostly outdoors using their BBQ and outdoor tables and chairs. The home is very close to great sites and the sky train which took us less than 30 minutes to get to downtown Vancouver. Thanks guys for a memorable stay!
very comfortable,cozy and felt at home..will go back for sure..quite neighborhood and area.the family enjoyed there stay..
I recommend Keith and Layla's house for large groups. We had a wonderful time during our stay. Each room has adequate space for couples or a small family. It was a warm and comfy house that felt like home. Our host was very accommodating and left us a very helpful manual of the house. Our friends and I would definitely come back to this place.
This is a beautiful house in a quiet, nice, and safe neighborhood. The house is comfortable, neat and tastefully decorated. It worked great for my family and extended family having 6 bedrooms to accommodate everyone. Also great was the VERY reasonable renting price. It is definitely a place to consider if visiting Vancouver.
Über den Gastgeber, Keith & Layla
Originally from the Northern Ireland I've been in Vancouver 14 years. I like to read, ski, mountain bike, eat out, and have drinks at good outdoor patios in the summer - I actually do these things on a regular basis rather than portray my ideal self doing these things on the web! I'm lucky enough to have a job i really like at a local high school. Makes getting up in the mornings so much easier.
Layla is a musician and keen photographer who rarely looks at a spare patch of wall in our house without think of how to cover it with a photograph.
Travelling is a big deal too, hence why my place is on Airbnb.
