RCMP say the 24-year-old Surrey man broke into the home and helped himself to food and personal items.
Police say the man put some items in a backpack and fell asleep on the couch.
Cpl. Richard De Jong says the homeowner arrived to find a strange man snoozing away and wearing his T-shirt.
He says the man was "certainly surprised" to wake up and see police.
The man accused of break and enter will remain in custody until he makes a court appearance.
