About the Property

CENTRAL VANCOUVER: RESTORED, CHARMING AND INTIMATE HOME, SLEEPS 7-10

We have advertised this property on VRBO for the past eleven years, since 2006. We proudly share again the following message.

This home is the owners’ winter residence and is ideal if you want to stay away from commercial properties. The residence occupies about 2000 sq ft of the main and second floor of a four storey Victorian Home, and is available from May to October. It can accommodate a small group or up to ten guests, but you will be charged only for the number of bedrooms you use and the number of guests in your party and will have the exclusive use of the residence.

The house is located off Broadway and Clark, in a very quiet and tidy homeowner occupied neighbourhood.
Centrally located, this residence is two short blocks away from Broadway, a main artery that allows easy connection to UBC University, the beaches and the downtown area on one side and Commercial Avenue, with its famous café and restaurants, on the other side.

It is one block away from Clark, your fastest connection to the airport and to Freeway 99 to Seattle; one block away from 12th Ave, the direct connection to Trans-Canada Highway 1.

The residence retains its original stained glass windows and is furnished with antiques and family heirlooms.
You will relax in the evening breeze on the deck, ready for a candlelight dinner or for a fun barbeque and will enjoy a lovely view of the city and the mountains from the master bedroom and bathroom.
Custom-made beds, two-hundred-counts 100% cotton linen and custom made mattresses will insure you the best comfort while you sleep.
The professional kitchen features custom made cabinets, marble counter top, professional gas stove, fridge, dishwasher, upright freezer, microwave, all the utensils.
In one of the bathrooms you will soak in bubbles floating in the original bear-claw-foot tub.

Dear Sammarco Family,
We have fallen in love with Vancouver!
We loved the house and neighborhood, especially the great parks all around for the kids to enjoy. The house felt very homey and we loved the art work all around.
With having a large family (6 kids) it was so nice to have a home base with room to move about, a kitchen to cook in and great patios to enjoy. We hope to return again sometime!
Thank you!

Sammarco Family,
Thank you for opening your home for us to enjoy. It was great having a 'home' base in a quiet neighborhood (especially travelling with a toddler)! The house (and the nearby park) worked very well for us, and an attraction in itself for our son!
We truly enjoyed your artistic home - what a talented group of people!
We loved the front and back deck! They were our go-to spots when the little guy was napping!!

Dear Sammarco Family,
We so enjoyed making your home our home for our week in Vancouver. Deb and I took trains from Toronto across Canada and met our son Adam and wife Jen here and then daughter Rachel and her boyfriend Dan joined us. We came from Indianapolis, Adam from tampa and Rachel from Tucson. We had a great time. Your neighbourhood is lovely and so close to SkyTrain and many restaurants. That's a workout! Thank again for opening your lovely home. It did some time for those of us over 6'1' to get used t some of the low ceilings, but we stopped banging our heads after a day or two. Ciao,

Dear Sammarco Family,
Thanks for providing such a wonderful 'home' to a group of Australians who came our son's wedding. We were all able to enjoy barbeques on the deck, coffee in the living room & great sleeps in the comfortable beds. We all felt totally at home - enjoyed our walks in the neighbourhood - ready access to the supermarket & SkyTrain. We couldn't have had a better place to spend our time. Thank you

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are two architects, originally from Italy, where we return every year. This is our winter residence in Canada. When we saw this house, in 1998, we knew we had found the right home for us.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Pleasant (Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, BC, Canada):
The quiet neighbour, the balanced location between two main commercial arteries — Main St and Commercial St — the easy accessibility to downtown, UBC, the beaches, the airport have made this location a perfect choice for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In addition to the above, we wanted our home to be flexible, organized, comfortable, and to have the beauty and warmth of an historical building.
