Looking for a room to rent from now-ish to middle of November
Posted July 18th, 2013 - 4:02 pm by from Belfast, Northern Ireland (Permalink)
Hey all. I've just arrived in Vancouver where I'll be staying for four months while my girlfriend works in Idaho (for her sins). I would've sorted this out long before now but I had a US visa application rejected (was planning on living in Idaho and they didn't believe me that I was going to live after the term of the visa - gah!) so this is all a wee bit frantic. I've been trawling Craigslist and Kajiji over the past couple of days but nothing's jumping out at me so far. I'm hoping one of you lovely folks would have something going or will be able to advise me.

What I'm looking for is a room that's going from August-November (a month by month contract would be great) in the greater Vancouver area for around $450/month, utilities included. Don't mind at all sharing a kitchen and/or bathroom. The size of the room isn't all that important, as long as it's clean. Don't mind if it's not exactly on top of a Skyline stop either.

A wee bit about me. I'm a 26 year old PhD student at Queen's University in Belfast. I'm from Ireland originally and have lived here my whole life, though I've travelled a lot over the years. I'm going to Vancouver to finish writing my PhD dissertation while my girlfriend (who has joint US/Irish citizenship and has just started her own PhD) studies in Idaho. I'm friendly, tidy and generally laid back, usually quite outgoing but also happy in my own company, reading or writing. With my dissertation to be getting on with there'll be plenty of both over the next few months, though I'm also a friendly person by nature. I don't smoke and (despite being Irish) I'm not a raging alcoholic!

Let me know if you know anything folks!

Thanks a million
Kevin

Hey, I'm up for it as long as you like dogs as we have 3. We ARE on the skytrain route as well and in an exttemely central area called Metrotown. You would LOVE it here.

Hi Cheryl. Thanks for getting back to me. Sounds great, and I do like animals so no worries in that regard. Would I be able to come over to see the place, possibly later today or this weekend?

Thanks!
