I spend a lot of time in Vancouver for business. I usually stay in Vancouver's downtown but during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics it was next to impossible to find a place downtown. I found Teresa's offer on the internet and after a quick inspection I decided to stay with her for 12 days.
It is a typical, quiet suburban place. It is at a cul-de-sac of a small street and as a result there is practically no traffic here. The apartment was newly renovated and smelled fresh. The whole place has a "homey" feeling and I especially liked the kitchen. I had to walk 10 minutes to the railway station to get the train to downtown Vancouver but I was happy to be away from the hassle and bassel of the big city, especially that I was at my place of work in a little over half an hour from the time of leaving home. The morning and afternoon commuter trains go fast from Coquitlam to downtown Vancouver and back without any stops in between.
