rooms available in Coquitlam
once again I am looking to fill a room.
I've had great people here and hope to keep up the string of good roommates so once again I'm hoping to do it through the CS community rather than on Craigslist.
This is a large and often busy house with occasional roommates and a constant stream of surfers and guests. Even when rooms are rented out there is still room available for my overnight guests.
The house has large living areas with pool table, party room, quiet rooms, large kitchen, deck, patio, private back yard, hot tub, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It is located nine flat blocks from Coquitlam Center, four blocks from direct buses to downtown and skytrain and twelve blocks from the Westcoast Express train station and a night bus stop. Travel time to downtown by transit ranges from 60 - 90 minutes and by car from 30 - 60 minutes.
This is not in the middle of no-where... there are at least five Starbucks, four Tim Horton's (and a couple organic, fair-trade independent coffee places), over sixty restaurants, eight bars, four hundred retail stores (including stores like Apple, H&M, and the big retailers), lots of large grocery stores (T&T, Safeway, Price-Smart, Real Canadian Superstore, IGA, Henderson, Choices Organic, Kin's Market), a Community Center and Aquatic Center (both a block or two away) and a Library within twelve pedestrian and cycling friendly flat blocks.
For info on the area google Coquitlam Town Center or Coquitlam Centre
I have three furnished rooms and a studio combination at $525 (small room with no closet space), $575 larger room with bed and desk, $600 larger room with bed and desk in a study nook... the fellow that moved out recently was a writer and he loved it) and $1100 for bedroom and living room / studio with half kitchen. The rates include utilities, wifi and washer / dryer but do not include cable TV. It also includes use of the hot tub, pool table and common rooms. The full kitchen is very well equipped with cookware, appliances, dishes, etc. One of the two larger rooms will be filled soon and one other room will be occupied in November.
This coming month I am busy and can't be a very attentive host so the home won't be very busy or crowded with surfers... and while I'm busy I would rather just have someone living there than the constant distractions of meeting and hosting surfers. In the next five weeks I have some nights with no surfers and so far the most for any night is seven.
