Welcome to The Kitsilano Penthouse at Alma Beach Manor. This stunning 2 bedroom penthouse is located on the top floor of a beautifully restored, 1912 Vancouver Craftsman-style, Heritage Manor Home situated on a tranquil, tree lined street in the heart of Vancouvers premier neighbourhood - Kitsilano and Point Grey.
Light and airy, our penthouse is an open concept 2 bedroom suite that is warm, inviting and makes you feel right at home. The south facing french doors provide lots of natural light and leads to a large patio where you can relax with a drink and take in some sunshine. The newly renovated and fully equipped kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, a gas range and granite countertops. You can relax on the large sectional sofa, turn on the gas fireplace and relax with your favourite book or watch a movie on our new LCD tv.
The master bedroom is private and separate from the second bedroom and offers a stunning view of the ocean, north shore mountains and the beautiful tree lined street below. Both bedrooms have a queen bed with brand new pillow top hotel quality mattress, 400 thread count sheets and Pottery Barn covers and duvets. The bathroom has a bathtub, shower, elegant fixtures and a granite counter top.
Arguably the best location in the city, Alma Beach Manor is only 2 blocks to the beach and 8 minutes to downtown and UBC. The bus stop is half block and you have instant access to bike lanes...so there is no need for a car! Fine dining and boutique shops are only steps away on 4th Avenue and we are just a few blocks from the world famous Kitsilano Beach and Kitsilano Pool, a 50 meter outdoor pool that overlooks English Bay, Kits Beach, downtown Vancouver and the stunning north shore mountains.
NEW. Each suite has NESPRESSO machines to make perfect cappuccinos every time. We provide you with a complimentary STARTER Basket with fresh bread, coffee, tea, juice, milk, butter and biscuit to start your stay off right.

About: Carol has been in the travel business for many years as a flight attendant, hence the love for travel and meeting new people. We love outdoor activity such as skiing, biking on our tandem, swimming, windsurfing and sailing. Walking in our tree lined neighbourhood and the sandy beaches is one of our favourite passtimes. Eating out at the many ethnic restaurants is also an easy thing to do just steps away.
When we are not here to enjoy Vancouver's breathtaking sights and sounds, we are on the island of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand in our brand new beachfront resort called The Lotus Terraces. Come and visit us there for a spectacular beachfront holiday.
Why Kitsilano: We have lived in the beautiful area of Kitsilano and Point Grey in the heart of Vancouver for over 25 years. We love the old heritage style architecture of the homes, some of which we have restored, added modern conveniences and brought back some of the old charm. Our properties are all north of 4th Avenue so they are close to the beautifull beaches of Vancouver and yet we are only 5 to 10 minutes from downtown. The Manor is also on one of Vancouver's designated bicylce streets.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Having travelled extensively, we recognize that having conveniences like high speed internet, cable TV, laundry, free parking and full kitchens are great benefits to feeling 'at home'. We offer all of these on an inclusive basis. There are no hidden costs. We make it convenient for travellers to check in and out with keyless entry locks. The property is located in a lovely treed residential neighbourhood, just steps to many unique, ethnic restaurants, shops and services. The bus stop is just outside so you can travel anywhere by bus; hiring a car is not really necessary.
Diagonally opposite the Manor, is the wonderful Tatlow Park, which has a playground and tennis courts and takes you right to the ocean.
If you do not want to stay in a condo or high rise building, we offer a lovely, safe alternative for couples or families alike.
