Kitsilano House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

California-style townhouse on a quiet street in one of Vancouver's most vibrant neighborhoods - all within walking distance to the beach. Enjoy the shops and award-winning restaurants on bustling West 4th Ave, relax at the beach or nearby Olympic-size pool, and access every amenity along West Broadway (organic markets, great schools, medical centres, yoga studios and cafes).

The townhouse interior has dark hardwood floors at the entrance and in the main living and dining area. Furnishings are modern/comfortable and the kitchen is brand new and very well appointed with excellent appliances, cooking tools, table wear, glassware and cutlery. The dining room is situated in a bright nook in the front window and will seat 6 comfortably. There is a large 'Smart TV' (Skype and internet capable) over a wood-burning fireplace and original artworks that create a warm and inviting place to relax. WIFI internet, telephone and premium cable are all included.

Upstairs, the bedrooms have comfortable queen-sized beds with premium quality linens. The master bedroom has a TV with DVD player. There is also an additional folding, twin sleeping mat (with linens) available. Both bathrooms have shower facilities and the master bathroom (recently renovated) has a very large, jacuzzi soaker-tub and heated marble flooring.

The private roof-top deck is equipped with a BBQ and furnishings - perfect for hot summer days and relaxing warm evenings.

Monthly lease also includes bi-monthly cleaning service, parking for one in the driveway and additional parking on the street. There is a two-month minimum lease requirement unless there is availability and you are booking last minute (within a week or two).

About Melanie

Having purchased this home (adjacent to my own) in 2004, I have hosted many guests and met some wonderful people. Most have come to Vancouver to work in the film industry and as a member of IATSE 891, I am very familiar with the needs of people working 12 hour days who want to stay in a warm, well-designed, and comfortable 'home'!

Melanie purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Fantastic neighborhood. Quiet street but only a couple of blocks from every amenity. Wonderful roof deck with barbecue and outdoor furniture.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, welcoming property. Could not have asked for a more central location. We could walk everywhere and enjoy Vancouver summer days and nights. The owner is hospitable and friendly, welcoming us with flowers and snacks. The property itself was comfortable. The deck was beautiful. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for a home away from home!

Wonderful suite in a charming neighbourhood, and the best land lady we've ever met

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our preschooler and dog while our house was being renovated elsewhere in Vancouver. We fell in love with the neighbourhood and wish we could live in the area. It seems everyone on the block is friends with the others and the neighbours were mostly very welcoming.

Melanie was a perfect and helpful landlady without being intrusive. We felt very much at home the whole time. Melanie was quick to attend to the minor repairs needed. The suite is even nicer than the pictures indicate. We loved the well laid out kitchen and that the cookware and table settings were in good shape. Nothing needed was missing.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for visiting Vancouver, in a very nice neighbourghood. Not only the Land Lady is great, but the neighbourghs as well. We all enjoyed the terraze, the Barbeque, the wondeful baths and all of the appliances that we found in the house. A family of five felt like they needed nothing more. It is very close to a shopping centre and to Avenues 10 and 4 which are full of stores. We bought some second hand bycicles and we did not had to use the car in the three weeks we stayed in the house. We felt like at home.
