About Malcolm McSporran or Rebekah Sells

We are Rebekah and Malcolm. We have lived here since 1987, brought up our two kids, Shenny and Anpayo, in this house, and have many friendly neighbours. Rebekah works as a counsellor for kids and families; Malcolm designs houses and First Nations cultural buildings. Our kids are grown, our daughter moved out, our son at Lanagara college, and still living at home. Our grandson, Carter (8), also lives with us.

Malcolm McSporran or Rebekah Sells purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Malcolm McSporran or Rebekah Sells chose Vancouver

We bought this house because we liked the neighbourhood, and we have lived in this area since 1978. We turned our garden level apartment into a vacation rental by completely re-buillding it, because we realized there were so many visitors interested in staying in the Kitsilano area

What makes this apartment unique

A person staying in this neighbourhood can enjoy all the amenities of Vancouver, with very little travel time.

Best Stay of our 3-week trip through Canada!

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful stay at Rebekah and Malcolm's Garden Suite.

The flat was nice and cozy with space for all four of us. We could get into the flat right after we arrived and everything was clean and well-maintained.

Malcolm and Rebekah were very open and nice to talk with :-)

We even got some bananabread from Rebekah which tasted absolutely delicious.

The location itself was also perfect - west broadway and the 4th avenue right around the corner. Grocery shopping, coffee stores and shopping itself was thus just taking a step out of the door.

We would highly recommend staying at this place to everybody who wants to live near vancouver city but also in a nice (shopping) area and close to the sea.

Perfect location and sweet apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cute apartment which was clean and thoughtfully decorated. Malcolm was kind and easy to work with. We loved, loved, loved our little basket of pastries left for us upon arrival. Fast internet! Easy to walk to shops and restaurants and close to the museum of anthropology which was a highlight of our 2 week trip to BC.

Thank you for having us! Andie, John, and Cami

Lovely garden suite, will be back!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us and we stayed during a weekend in July. The hosts were so accomodating and made us feel like part of the family, including use of the garden which our children adored!  The apartment is very well equipped with a kitchen, comfortable beds, clean, modern and very well designed.   The apartment as even better than the photos and well located for cafes, grocery stores, green grocers, beaches etc.   It was so kind of the hosts to leave the most lovely pastries for us when we arrived and will definitely be making this our place to stay when we visit Vancouver next.  I will recommending to our family and friends. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!!

Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us and we stayed during a very wet weekend an early Feb 2016 weekend. Malcolm immediately appeared to greet us and to help open the sleeping sofa. The apartment is very well equipped, comfortable, spotless and cosy. We appreciated the Nepresso coffeemaker and the thoughtfulness of our hosts to provide tasty pastries to go with it! Fresh cut spring flowers on the table were a nice touch too. We hope to make this our future home whenever we visit Vancouver!

We would have loved to stay longer

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful place.

The garden suite itself is just great.

But three things elevate this place to another level:

1. This area of Kitsilano is fantastic. We could live here.

2. The garden in the back of the house is so nice.

3. Malcolm and Rebekah are the nicest people. They live upstairs. Helpful, kind and intelligent people.

Hope to come back someday.

Very comfortable suite in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Rebekah's and Malcolm's for two nights in early August. This one-bedroom unit is nicely appointed with comfortable bed, couch and chairs. Lots of classy touches. Although it is a basement unit there are plenty of windows to make it bright and airy. There is a private backyard. Their home is located on a quiet tree-lined street, but only a short walk to great restaurants on W 4th Ave and W Broadway. We parked the car for the two days and walked and cycled. Nice hosts and great value.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a very nice review. It was a pleasure having the Keagans stay at our place. We never thought of our place as a basement, since the floor is about 18" below grade, with patios at the front and back entrances. Anyway, we'll look forward to having the Keagans with us again in the future. Malcolm & Rebekah
