  1. Hey I might be interested.. Do you have photos of the indoors for the bottom floor, and can you give me the address? Thanks.

  2. hi, i’m interested in renting both. My brother, Scott Morgan, forwarded me this posting. Just a few questions: Can you give me the address? i want to see if it is near Scott on Williams. As above, can you provide photos of the inside? Is there a garage? My husband and I are looking for long term rental. How long to you plan to rent it out for? We are avid gardeners. Can we plant flowers as well as veggies?
    thanks, Jennifer and NIk

    • Hi, it is still available. I’ve been out of town but will be resuming showing on Sunday.

  4. Hi Maggie,

    It still is for rent. I’ve been out of town so am just resuming showing it. Best, Keira

  5. Hi Keira, just wanted to check if the place is still available. Sounds like it…..maybe? I am friend of Brian’s from UBC.

    • So sorry to not reply- I have very shoddy blogging practices at times. We ended up doing an open house and yes, rented upstairs for Nov. 1st.

  6. Hi Keira:

    Looking for a place for my friend and her daughter. Finished her doctorate and now working in Burnaby. She is looking for a place in the Hastings Sunrise area. In case you know of anyone or if timing is good that your tenants are moving? Please email back at modmadz@gmailcom
