Location, location, location. My place is right beside the skytrain station (Langagra-49th). The Canada Line can take you straight to Vancouver airport within 10 minutes, so you don't have to spent money for taxi. It can also get you to downtown and the outlets in 15 minutes. Bus stops just outside the door. No.49 bus can take you to University of British Columbia and Metrotown. No.15 bus can lead you to Olympic Village. All these public transports are making it easier to explore the city.
