About the property

5 STAR 1100 Sqft Executive Home 3 Blocks To The Beach just mins to Downtown

Situated in the most central and beautiful area in Vancouver, Kitsilano is a 10 minute drive to UBC, Granville Island, and Downtown Vancouver. Only three blocks from the beach, on a quiet, historic, tree lined street, is this fabulous accommodation.

From the moment you walk into this gorgeous rebuilt heritage house, you will feel the weight of the world lighten. As you enter through the covered front porch, a large open concept room with vaulted ceilings and eucalyptus hardwood floors warmly invite you in. A gourmet stainless steel kitchen, with granite counters and gas stove are available for the chef in all of us.

In addition to the open and welcoming kitchen, the living area has a gas fireplace, with a queen sized temper-pedic (very comfortable) pull out mattress for extra guests or for a romantic evening by the light of the fire. Sit outside as you quietly sip your morning coffee, or as you enjoy your dinner, taking in the breathtaking West Coast sunset on the upstairs balcony, off the master bedroom. Then, soothe your mind and pamper your body as you relax in a nice hot bubble bath in the generously sized jacuzzi tub.

With a “Walk Score” of 97, every amenity you could possibly need is within a 5 minute walk. You can have a wide variety of different ethnic foods, get pampered at the spa, get a massage, purchase groceries, shop for clothing, furniture, and so much more! Walk to Vancouver’s prestigious “Jericho Tennis Club” or to the “Royal Vancouver Yacht Club”, everything is at your finger tips!

As your comfort and enjoyment is of the utmost importance to us, we have paid attention to all of the fine details that really matter. The Executive House on 3rd is complete with lush linens, and quality mattresses ensuring that you will have a wonderful night’s sleep. You will wake up refreshed and ready to get out and explore one of the very best cities in the world.

Whether you are in Vancouver for a family vacation, business, or coming to Vancouver for a hockey game or concert, The Executive House on 3rd is the right accommodation for you.

For larger parties the suite downstairs, complete with a second kitchen, living room and a full bath really help keep everyone together while still offering space. Inquire for more rates and details.

Your friendly and helpful hosts, Jenni and Shaune look forward to welcoming you, accommodating and customizing your stay with them in 'Beautiful BC.'

Great location! Charming house! Helpful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our getaway. The separate sleeping spaces (upstairs and downstairs) worked perfectly for our family. Jenni was very helpful leading up to, and during our stay. Walkable to restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, local bookstores, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Awesome location, darling house

  • 5 of 5

We had a 10-person family gathering at this darling house. The location is just awesome, walking distance to all kinds of things, including coffee, grocery store, cafes, parks & beach. Close to bus line to downtown. House has wonderful front porch and fenced-in front yard that we used for happy hours, guitar playing, kid games, etc. Ample towels and linens was a bonus, and it was big enough considering it is a city house. It is a shoes-off house, FYI. Jenni is super friendly, attentive and just a wonderful host!

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this lovely property was truly perfect. The home exceeded my expectations. It is beautiful, tastefully decorated and equipped with every amenity I could have hoped for. It housed myself, two daughters and my mother, with each of us able to enjoy some private space as well as a fantastic kitchen/living area. It is located in a lovely neighborhood with coffee shops, grocery store, a nice local pub and a great variety of restaurants all within walking distance. The location was also a great launching spot for all of our ventures into the greater Vancouver area. We had easy trips to Stanley Park, Granville Island, downtown Vancouver and more. I would recommend this home for anyone wishing to visit the area. Jenni is a perfect host and the accommodations could not have been better.

Great Location for a Vancouver Visit

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five ( 3 young adult children) and this was a great location to explore Vancouver. We stayed in the upstrairs and downstairs bedrrooms, and the place was clean when we arrived with plenty of linens and kitchen neccesities. The house is located 3 blocks from the water in the Kitsilano neighborhood and one can walk, run and bike along the water way. There is also rentals for windsurfing, saliing and kayaking near by. We had rented a car and found it easy to travel to downtown, western and northern Vancouver to hike. There are coffee places, pubs, a grocery store, retail stores and a few other restaurants within waking distance. The feel of the neighborhood was relaxing l Jenni was very responsive to questions we had that came up and gave a great suggestion for a hike. We had rented a car and parking is on the street out front. We were able to find a spot on the street most of the time and only occasionally had to partk one or two blocks over. Great location for exploring Vancouver!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

Our large family had a wonderful 5 night stay in this beautiful home. The home is cosy and comfortable with lots of space (when using the additional downstairs area) for a family of 6. It is in what we believe to be the perfect location for an extended stay - while our teenagers were adjusting to jet lag, my husband and I grabbed a coffee from the lovely cafes a short stroll away each morning before running along the beach front (yes in the middle of winter!). We were blessed with magnificent weather for the time of year and the views across the water to the City, or snowcapped mountains in all directions was incomparable. Lots of fantastic cafes and restaurants nearby, close to a great IGA (with awesome and friendly staff) and the bus service into downtown was great. Jenni was away over the Holiday period so we did not meet her. Our only complaint was the cleanliness of the house on our arrival - numerous pots and pans and crockery were dirty and required scrubbing before we could prepare our first evening meal. Also both sofa beds (when we made them for sleep the first night for 2 of our teens) were both dirty - food wrappers, leaves, and dirt were in both sofas when we opened them out and it took us some time to locate which of the spare linen would fit each bed. The rug in the living room needed a good vacuum also. This was our only disappointment - especially as we were required to leave a $300 cleaning fee in cash at the end of our stay. Despite this issue we loved our vacation here and would recommend it to others.
