Kitsilano apartment description

Avalon Guest Suite and Coach house is located on a quiet tree lined street but just steps from shops, restaurants and easy direct transportation links to downtown Vancouver and UBC. There are over 30 different restaurants and cafes located within 2 blocks of the accommodation! We are also within easy walking distance to several beautiful beaches.
We have 2 units on our property, each comprising of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
Each unit can be rented separately or combined to accommodate larger groups.
The Avalon Suite is located at ground level in the beautifully restored and fully updated main house. The unit has 2 bedrooms with queen beds in each room and a queen sofa bed in the living room and can sleep up to 6 guests and a small child in a crib.
We installed a new kitchen and cozy gas fireplace in May 2013 and have fully updated the suite.
In addition we can offer our newly built 2 bedroom Coach House, located on the rear of our property (just across the garden from the suite), offering luxury accommodation on 2 levels for up to 7 guests. This new Coach house is fully self contained and built to the highest standard using eco friendly materials.
Our accommodation is ideal for couples who seek the spaciousness of our accommodation, families with children (we have baby equipment, toys and a child friendly property) and larger groups wishing to travel together.
Each unit has a private outdoor patio with grill.
Avalon Guest Suite has been awarded a rating of 98% by WalkScore - a walker’s paradise!

Here is what some of our guests have to say...: Great Find!
'We visited Vancouver for four days with our two sons, aged one and four, and wanted a comfortable place in a great neighbourhood. The Avalon Guest Suite was perfect. The apartment is comfortable and clean, and the location is great. It is located on a charming, tree-lined street with a short walk from the shops on Broadway.' ~DA


'Loved this bright, beautifully decorated suite. It's in a great safe neighbourhood, within walking distance to everything you would ever need...and more. We were there in October and the maple trees were turning their gorgeous colours.

The suite is very well equipped for preparing your own meals. Grocery stores are close by. You don't really need a car.

Thanks to the O'Dwyer family for a lovely stay. We will be back next year...' ~HappyTrails

Our neighbourhood....: Kitsilano, colloquially knows as “Kits” is one of Vancouver’s premiere Neighbourhoods and is located on the city’s west side. It is bordered to the North by two beaches, Kitsilano and Jericho beach and is home to two distinct commercial areas. The first located along Broadway between Larch and Blenheim streets, only steps from Avalon Guest Suite, while the other is along 4th Ave between Balsam and Burrard streets.

Kitsilano is a great neighbourhood to explore on foot, with its many wonderful shops and restaurants as well as parks and beaches.

                          Location

                          Kitsilano is Vancouver's premier neighbourhood, located just ourside the downtown core.

                          Characterised by its leafy tree-lined streets and miles of beautiful sandy beaches, it is the ideal location from which to explore Vancouver and its surroundings.

                          Our vacation home is located in the centre of Kitsilano, on a quiet street, yet within steps of cafes, restaurants and shops and direct bus links to downtown Vancouver and UBC (the University of British Columbia).

                          Walk through a vibrant neighbouthood, sip your coffee on an outdoor patio and enjoy sunset on the beach in Kitsilano!
