No smoking, no drinking, no drugs and no over 5’4 ”.
These are the tenant requirements set forth in a Vancouver rental ad on Craigslist for a bachelor basement suite on 25th and Main Street. For $ 1000 / month, the suite comes with a room with hot water, high speed internet and what looks like a high ceiling.
“Are you looking for long-term / a quiet cleaning shorter than (sic) 5’4″ work / study responsible and helpful mature ind[ividiual]”, It says in the listing.
The list’s nine pictures show a roasted half-oven and pieces of plaster that cling to exposed bars with screws that really only do their best. At least the cabinet next to the refrigerator (which has about a foot space between the ceiling) has stained glass windows.
However, the list does not tell hopeful tenants if the lamp, which sits strictly on two upturned milk crates is included. Nor does it indicate whether the proverbial rat’s nest in an extension cord hanging from a wall comes with the place.
Provided they meet the height requirement, tenants can have a pet.
There is no laundry on site or street parking.
The list has been around for about a month and was updated just two weeks ago; anyone still interested?
