                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      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.
