Kensington-Cedar Cottage house description

Welcome to our lovely little Cedar Cottage duplex! This two storey unit has three small bedrooms, two full baths and a brand new kitchen. We welcome travelers with small children and offer a location with easy connections to all areas of the city.

This is a compact unit and works nicely for 4 people. We can accommodate up to 6 - this gets snug - but does offer a reasonable option for larger families as well.

We welcome all travelers - young or old. We encourage minorities. For guests with babies we offer the following additional provisions: a pack and play, high chair, toys, picture books, potty and bath toys, children's dishes and cutlery, a Jolly Jumper, a Bumbo seat, a gate at the top of the stairs, a Trekker baby carrier and a collapsible stroller for your walks. We also welcome families with twins (we have more than one of some of the listed items).

The master bedroom has a queen size bed. One bedroom has bunkbeds the other a pull out daybed.

Our standard provisions include all bedding, linens, towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner and bath salts.

Please take a look around these pages to see everything we offer.

Kindly note that our prices depend on the number of people staying, and the prices shown by the listing system are for 4 people. Please look under 'Rates' tab for pricing details. Our prices are as noted.

Good to know is that this unit is not a basement suite or 'garden suite' (which still means a basement). This is a fully self contained three bedroom home completely above ground.

We welcome long stay inquiries between October - April.

Please note this is a strictly no smoking, no pets home.

              Owner info

              About the owner: We are a designer family from Europe - I am an architect and my partner Dante is a graphic artist. I am also a yoga instructor and professional yoga therapist. I have been in the ethical rentals business in Vancouver since 2003. We have a beautiful little girl who is five. Our travels have taken us abroad numerous times and we are pretty seasoned veterans of hauling car seats through airports... We felt it would be lovely service to the traveling family community to furnish this unit so that it would be welcoming of children and make life a bit easier for everyone. We also can't stop falling in love with Vancouver over and over again - even though we have lived here for almost 20 years.
