"This suite was perfect for our getaway to Vancouver. We came for the weekend with four people and the size of the suite was perfect! Heated floors in the bathroom, a sunny patio off the front, keyless entry so we didn't have to worry about carrying a key, very clean, modern and cozy all in one.
The full kitchen allowed us to cook when we wanted, but the close location to restaurants on 4th ave, Broadway, Olympic village and downtown made it easy to explore on bikes. Comor bikes just a five minute walk down the hill on 4th rented bicycles for three of us and the owner was nice enough to lend me her ladies bike for the weekend.
This place was just perfect!! We couldnt have asked for a more comfortable stay close to the shops, beaches and the seawall in Vancouver.
Thanks Theresa we will absolutely be back to stay! You were so nice to deal with during the booking process and even nicer in person :)
Until next time"

"This is a very comfortable and elegant house in a cute, safe and convenient neighborhood. A friend and I and our 2 teenage daughters spend 5 days here for sightseeing and soccer tourism. The house has 3 nice bedrooms, TV room, living room, great kitchen, beautiful garden, laundry, elegant furniture, etc. The landlords are very kind and helpful with advice on getting around/dining/etc. if needed.
The location is in a quiet tree-lined older neighborhood in Kits area close to downtown and you can walk in just a few min to great food/beach/bus routes/grocery/parks/shopping/etc. Some terrific bakeries (Sollys for cinnamon rolls) and restaurants (Nuba!). We rented bikes close by, there are many safe bike paths nearby (even for kids). Very easy to catch bus into town (15-20min).
Drawbacks? Not many come to mind, but parking is tight. Careful backing up in driveway due to a close by tree. A car is helpful to go hiking in mountains but otherwise is not needed at all. Taxi from airport is ~$25-30 (20min).
Conclusion: It was great. We would definitely come back."

"My family of 6 recently stayed 12 nights here after which we left for a week in the Canadian Rockies then tried out another vacation rental in a different part of Vancouver for 9 nights before we took off for home. We like staying in different neighborhoods to get a feel of the local area. In 2012, we stayed in Yaletown. For 2015, we wanted to try Kitsilano and the Trout Lake/Nanaimo area. While staying at our second rental, we realized and unanimously came to the conclusion that Derek's place in the Kitsilano area was so much better suited for our needs as a family for the following reasons. We cook quite often and Safeway just two block away was very convenient. We bought packets of Faresaver tickets there too. After a long day of sightseeing, as the bus dropped us off right by Safeway, we could easily buy groceries and food for our planned home cooked dinner. Since the house was just a short walk away, it was also no big deal carrying bags of groceries. Taking the bus was very convenient because we had several choices of bus stops - West Broadway, MacDonald and 4th Ave. All of these streets had frequent buses whizzing by so the wait was never long. An added plus are the many wonderful restaurants nearby for the times when we were too tired or lazy to cook. The very busy Peaceful Restaurant on Broadway that we tried on our previous 2012 trip has a branch on 4th Ave and we returned specifically for their delicious beef rolls. The Thomas Haas Chocolates patisserie on West Broadway was also a delicious find for their chocolate croissants and the chocolate raspberry cake I got for my husband's birthday. Rain or Shine ice cream on 4th Ave was a hit with us too. We like walking and with the mild spring weather, we walked a lot, frequently to 4th Ave and West Broadway, several times to Kitsilano Beach and even to church nearby to attend services. I could go on and on about the advantages of this location! To top it all, Derek is a wonderful host. His place is lovely and clean. We had more than enough towels, bars of soap and new bottles of shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen was complete for all our cooking requirements. The TV with cable enabled us to watch the NBA games that we were avidly following. The neighborhood is safe and we enjoyed very much walking the tree lined streets and looking at the pretty character homes. We had a wonderful memorable vacation and I can heartily say, Thank you Derek!"
