Overview

About the property

0 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Large, luxury modern craftsman studio basement suite featuring 9' ceilings, extensive crown mouldings and wainscotting, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with high end appliances, in suite laundry, and radiant in floor heating throughout. Centrally located in a quiet Kitsilano neighbourhood with tree lined streets but still only minutes away from the shops, parks & beaches (e.g. 10-12 minute walk to Jericho beach). The bedroom area has a queen sized bed and a top-of-the-line memory foam mattress, high quality duvet, pillows & linens and a large, double closet for your clothes. The living room has a high end sofa bed complete with a 40 inch Sony HD TV and huge cable package, including free movies. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, (including dishwasher), Henkel knives set, Jamie Oliver pots & pans, Kitchenaid blender, Kuerig coffee machine, and all the plates, utensils and essentials. There is ample storage for your luggage and free street parking. We also have a two bedroom laneway house available on the same property (see VRBO listing 1088183).

Some may find the set of stairs leading to the suite (as seen in the pictures) to be steep. We are looking at redesigning the stairs so that they are not as steep (this will be a "fall time" project).

About Connie

We are two working professionals raised locally but have travelled extensively throughout multiple continents and lived abroad in the UK and France for several years. We are now settled in Vancouver and wanting to share our beautiful home with you. David likes the outdoors and taking care of the plants. Connie likes all things sparkly and nice. Together we like calm and quiet. We have two little girls who like to sleep early!

Connie purchased this studio in 2014

Why Connie chose West Side

When we started looking for a house in the Kitsilano area, our favourite street was Waterloo. It had such a nice neighborhood feeling to it. When this house came on the market - Connie said it reminded her of a gingerbread house, and we knew it had to be our home.

What makes this studio unique

This suite is the lower level of a home that is situated on a nice quiet neighborhood street, just 10 minutes walk to the beach. It has flawless quality and design throughout. The suite is uniquely light, airy and open while being cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is quiet offering perfect solitude while still being close to the action of Kitsilano.

Such a Convenient Location to UBC

  • 5 of 5

Used this as a home base to attend the CANADIAN FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS and could not have asked for a nicer place close to our event. Could walk to shops and restaurants and the place is lovely. Everything you need to make your stay perfect. Would recommend it again and may need it again if we are able to attend the GRAND PRIX FINAL in Dec.

Thank you Connie for your hospitality.

Vancouver Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Studio suite is very quiet, modern, spacious and clean. With the high ceilings and open space, you forget that there is only window to look out of. Perfect for one or two persons. For elderly persons or people with baby strollers, there is a set of stairs that takes you to the basement level, but has good handrails.

The perfect place to stay while visiting Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend a week in this beautiful suit!

If you are looking for the perfect spot to stay in Vancouver look no further. Everything you need in walking distance along beautifully tree lined streets. Restaurants, shops, grocery stores, coffee shops and much more just a block away. A short distance away is Spirit Bear park with miles and miles of walking trails, kits beach, Grandville island and down town also very close to get to by bus or car.

Now the suit. Wow! We felt so safe, cozy and at home. There is everything you need. The kitchen had everything for cooking meals. It was very clean and uncluttered. We HIGHLY recommend staying here, Connie and David were a pleasure to deal with and dealt with a very minor issue promptly and accordingly.

Let’s just say look no further. We will never stay in a hotel in Vancouver again!

The vrbo is located in a nice area -convenient to transit, shops and restaurants. The studio is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Connie was most helpful and prompt in answering our questions. Highly recommend.
