Your Hosts

30Frank & RichardWe are two straight-friendly gay men who have lived together in Vancouver for over 40 years.

In 1988, we purchased our home in this neighborhood because of its close proximity to downtown. We are both cyclists- our primary mode of transportation in the city. We are a pleasant 25 minute walk or 10-minute cycle ride to Granville and Georgia Streets- the center of downtown Vancouver.

Our neighbours are for the most part socially and environmentally conscious, and share our city’s ambition to be the world’s greenest city. Strathcona has been designated a Heritage area by the City of Vancouver. Older buildings are protected and new development must conform to guidelines that maintain its late-Victorian character and charm. A highly desirable neighbourhood in a highly desirable city. The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has rated Vancouver as the third most livable city in the world, and its spectacular natural setting makes it one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Vancouver is a vibrant, tolerant and diverse city.  The multiculturalism here is amazing. There are people from everywhere in the world- it would be hard to find a culture, ethnicity or religion that isn’t represented here, and everyone gets along.

Bigots of any sort are not welcome at Strathcozy.

In order to comply with restrictions imposed by the City of Vancouver we cannot rent for periods of less than 30 days. We are open to renting for extended periods of up to 1 year.

Nous parlons francais. Und wir sprechen ein bischen Deutsch. Hablamos tambien espagnol un poco.
