    Looking for shared accomodation on the mainland...

    Looking for shared accomodation on the mainland... at this point not picky about the area, but will be moving back over 'part time' in the next 6 months. Due to a job offer, but not being able to leave my job right away in Nanaimo, I will be working part time in Vancouver and basically looking for a place to stay while I am blocked for work on the mainland, until I go full time closer to the end of the year (in which case I stay in the place I find if suitable, or find another place to rent). Somewhere with garage space would be nice, to keep the bike, as well as room for a vehicle, as I will be taking one or both over during the summer months.

    If you've got a room for rent or know anyone that may be looking for a roommate soon, post or PM me the details.

    Cheers

    -J

    Please be more specific about the area you are looking for.
    Fraser Valley? Near DT? Surrey? etc...

    As I said, not overly picky about the location at this point, as the health care facility I'll be working at is giving me a choice of sites at the moment... somewhere 'central' so Abbottsford, Langley, Vancouver, Burnaby-ish would be nice, within an hour from Horseshoe Bay as I will be needing to commute back and forth to the island depending on work blocks.


    The plan in the long run (aka 2010ish) is to attend the JI campus in New West, so will be looking for somewhere closer to there in a year's time or so.

    FYI - Abby & Langley are far from central, and in heavier traffic are going to be much more than an hour to Horseshoe Bay.

    Central would be New West, Bby, some parts of Van, areas of Coquitlam.....avoid bridges on daily commute if possible

    Good luck....have you checked craigs list? - http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/roo/

    My bad, I meant central to the facilities I may be working at, in the areas I've listed. I hear you on the commute/bridges though, and I'm ok with the distance to and from the ferry as in the summer months I'll be using the bike mostly to commute back and forth anyways... may just take a shot at the North Shore where I lived before... at this point I think Langley would be the farthest from the ferry I would go.

    And thanks for the Craigslist tip, I've been in touch with a few people but seeing as I'd like a place to keep the bike at night, I thought this would be a better shot... people are a bit more understanding, and I may even get to live with someone I already know!

    I'm not sure if you are currently working in a hospital (I'm assuming that's what you mean by health care facility), but if you do, there is often a "marketplace" in the public folders that can be found through your email (outlook, webmail, etc). I see quite often people offering shared accomodations, places for rent, etc.

    Just a thought in case you have access to that but didn't know about it. And the good part is these are also postings from health care workers.

    Thanks for the post, at this point I am currently only employed with VIHA, and all they've got on their marketplace is island listings... at this point I'm not set up with my work email at the new facility yet, but will be shortly, in which case I will check it out! Thanks again!

    This sounds like a great opportunity, but at this point I think I'll be looking for something a bit less spacious amd rent-wise, as I'll only be there a few days a week if that. Location would have been good though, and I will keep it in mind if I'm still trying to find a place closer to that time!
