indeed. This does make a difference because public transit is not going to be a great help getting him to work for 4.30am. You will have to be within cycling distance. Forget North Burnaby in that case.

We stayed in a suite in the Coast Hotel in English bay for 3 months after we arrived (so long because we bought a place which took a while to find and go through the buying process). It was a decent place and was fairly reasonably priced if you are staying there for over a month - not all that much more than an appartment rental with the convenience of a hotel and we could extend/end with no notice. As others have pointed out decent rentals move fast, so being flexible is a good thing - our friend who live in a nice English bay appartment just drove around for a bit looking for the vacancy signs and then went straight in.

4am will be a bit tricky on public transport, but easily do-able if he's up for biking it - a very pleasant cycle along the sea-wall round yaletown and over the cambie bridge (or over the burrard bridge, which is a little less scenic but perhaps slightly shorter).

What area are you living?
We are looking for an appartment on Cambie st, close to city square where my partner will be working, do you know of any good places to rent? Else we'll be sleeping on the beach lol.
It's going to be real strange spending xmas wihout any friends or family.
We are also in our mid 30's so it would be cool to share our experiences and of course celebrate.
