Don Darrach purchased this house in 2017

Why Don Darrach chose East Side

The location is really the best part of this property.

The neighborhood has transformed over the last few years into a vibrant, colourful, 'happening' place filled with hundreds of restaurants, bars and boutiques.

We simply go for a stroll outside our door and we have countless options available to us for entertainment, food and shopping.

Free parking.

What makes this house unique

The house is also very central for getting around Vancouver from this location.

We are a 12 minute cab ride to downtown Vancouver and the closest sky train station is 29th Avenue or Joyce-Collingwood is about a 8-10 minute walk away, and that will take you to every corner of the city.

We are also a half hour drive from the local ski mountain (Grouse Mountain) and a 1.5 hour drive from Whistler Blackcomb mountain.

Great Place

We had a group of 9 who were very comfortable in the home. Plenty of room, and the location was fantastic - quick walk to the train station with easy access to the city. Definitely recommend!

Convenient location, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The neighbourhood was quiet, the house was comfortable and had a great kitchen for cooking and cards. It's conveniently located between two train stops, close to a grocery store/liquor store and coffee. It's pretty centrally located no matter what your Van plans are.

Location

Nearest Airport
11.58 Kilometres
Vancouver International Airport
Nearest Train
750 Metres
29th Avenue Station Sky Train
Car: not necessary

The house is located:

-A quick 8-10 minute walk to and from 29th Avenue or Joyce-Collingwood Sky train station.

-9.3 km (5.8 miles) to and from Downtown Vancouver.

-9.4 km (5.8 miles) to and from Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal.

-15.2 km (9.4 miles) to and from Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

SkyTrain is a public transportation train system in Vancouver that connects most areas in Vancouver.

The train is clean, easy to navigate, and inexpensive to travel around Vancouver.

The house is very conveniently located very close to the SkyTrain station.

For SkyTrain schedule:

Please check out TransLink SkyTrain Schedule online.

You will take the Expo Line to and from downtown Vancouver to house.

You can take SkyTrain from YVR Airport but if you are travelling with a big group and with a lot of luggage, it might be more convenient and less expensive to take a taxi.

To and from downtown Vancouver or other tourist locations:

-Take a SkyTrain. I would use SkyTrain when you do not have a lot luggage. It is only 8-10 minutes walk to closest SkyTrain station plus 12 minutes ride on SkyTrain (Expo line) to and from downtown Vancouver.

-Driving is distance is 9.3 km (5.8 miles) to and from Downtown Vancouver.

To and from Vancouver International Airport (YVR):

-Take a taxi or rent a car – it is 15.2 km or 9.4 miles. I would recommend this if you are travelling with a big group and carrying a lot of luggage.

-Take a SkyTrain – you will take Canada Line and transfer to Expo Line to go to the house. The closest SkyTrain station is about 8-10 minutes walking distance from the house.

To and from Canada Place Cruise Ships:

-Take a taxi - it is 5.8 miles or 9.4 km. I would recommend to do this compare to take SkyTrain because you are travelling with big groups plus luggage.

-Walk to SkyTrain station (8-10 minutes walk) + 12 minutes ride on SkyTrain to Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal.

There are plenty of street parking.
