located in Greater Vancouver, close to highway 1 in Burnaby. Quiet home in quiet neighbourhood with a laneway access where I park my 23' Pleasureway when it isn't in the garage. We can give you access to our rooftop putting green and sitting area where we have a lovely view. It is a cozy urban location, in a fascinating city that is growing rapidly. Suitable for smaller rvs.

we are always traveling in our class B Pleasureway but want to meet and exchange locations, especially those who are "passing through". We are also very private and quiet.



Suggested Local Attractions

Burnaby's Deer Lake is a nice walk. Metrotown is a major shopping mall connected to transit. Vancouver is not far.

Warm experience

Was warmly greeted and shown around the property, including where to park, electric and water access, and sitting area with view of city that we could use. Host was very personable and chatted with us about his interests and research findings from our hometown, which were intriguing. We had easy access to host for anything that we needed but had plenty of privacy and ability to come and go as we needed. Will definitely stay here again when back in town as host was very personable and location was close to everything. Thank you @jackgin for a great first #BoondockersWelcome experience!

Great Host and Perfect Cozy Location

Loved our 2 night stay with Jackgin. Our RV was tucked into a cozy location with access to water and electricity. Short walk to bus station for easy access to beautiful new shopping mall and skytrain to Vancouver. Jackgin was very accommodating, personable and helpful. This is a gem of a location! Thanks again Jackgin!

Wonderful spot, wonderful hosts.

Jack is a gentleman, his spot is a quiet haven in the midst of the big city. All the amenities in a true urban hideaway. Thank you so much for providing a port in the storm! Highly recommended.

Every comfort!

Our visit at Urban Hideaway was really wonderful. At the tail end of a long and challenging trip for medical care, we found his hospitality and friendliness a great "Welcome back to Canada". His spot is a central and convenient and yet somehow a cozy corner magically tucked away from the noise and bustle of the city! We slept deeply in this quiet spot. Every mod con is available and these hosts couldn't be more kind. We cannot recommend them too highly!

Easy and Welcoming

Jackgin was very quick with responding to our inquiry which made it easy for us, as we were just passing through Vancouver. We stayed one night. The neighborhood was safe and quiet, we enjoyed taking the dog for walks. He is close to Deer Lake which was a great spot to walk around on a sunny day. We would check with him for availability if we were ever in the area again!

So welcoming!!

Jackgin was a terrific host! He was one of the most welcoming people I have ever met. He introduced me to his family, gave me some of the most delicious yellow plums fresh picked form his tree, and even offered to make me an Americano in the morning! Very safe place to park. There are options, depending on your needs. I chose the street parking. I highly recommend this host.
