No smoking, no drinks, no drugs and no one over 5’4 ”.
These are the tenant requirements listed in a Vancouver rental list ad on Craigslist for a Bachelor Basement Suite on 25th and Main Street. For $ 1,000 / month, the suites come with a hole with a hot water room, high speed internet and what appear to be awesome low ceilings.
“Looking for long term / a quiet clean shorter then (sic) 5’4 ” working / studying responsibly and helpful mature in[ividiual], “Sounds the list.
The nine pictures in the list show a rusty oven with half range and chunks of drywall sticking to exposed pegs with screws that really just try their best. At least the cabinet by the refrigerator (which has a distance of about one foot between the ceiling) has stained glass panes.
However, the construction does not tell hopeful tenants if the lamp attached to two inverted milk crates is included. Nor does it indicate whether the proverbial rat of an extension cord hanging from one wall accompanies the place.
Provided they meet the height requirement, renters can have a pet.
There is no laundry on site or street parking.
The list has been up for about a month and was updated just two weeks ago; anyone still interested?
