              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I have lived in Vancouver for most of my life. I enjoyed working in construction & real estate development when I was younger and it was always my dream to own a heritage property in Kitsilano. My career moved into the international travel industry and I now work with some of the finest hotel brands around the world. In 2000 I was able to combine my passions and bought a fine old heritage home in Kitsilano. I finally completed the restoration and then furnished the suites to 5 star hotel quality standards. We now offer fine accommodation to those people looking for a wonderful place to stay during their time in Vancouver.

              Why the Owner Chose Kitsilano:
              Kitsilano was voted the best area of Vancouver and we are located in the center of Kitsilano, close to many shops and stores and transit to everywhere in the city. We offer clean extremely well appointed apartments in a fully restored classic Arts & Crafts Heritage Home. With a 'Walk Score' of 93* - Walkers Paradise, 83* Very Bikeable, and 77* -Excellent Transit

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Proximity is walking distance to everything a guest could need or want, including transit to all the best sights and sounds in Vancouver.
