Brand new 1BR, 1BA (600 sqft) apartment in a 107-year-old heritage home that has been immaculately restored to blend original character with contemporary comfort, style, and function. It is clean, open, and bright, and all the action of the most diverse and culture rich neighbourhood in Vancouver is just steps outside your door.

The unit has 3 beds: a top quality Queen mattress; a pull-out double sofa/bed; plus, a single pull-out chair/bed, comfy and perfect for a child. There are plenty of linens and towels for 5 people, plus the in-suite washer and dryer will keep your laundry supplies fresh.

Well proportioned kitchen with all the necessary conveniences to cook up a full family meal and a dishwasher for the mess. Separate dining area comfortably set up for 4 plus the table can be expanded to accommodate 6.
Stylish finishings, 9 foot ceilings, large bright windows, and double glass doors open to a large, private, deck with sunny southern exposure overlooking our beautiful grapevine and gardens - perfect for sunsets.

Transit buses are steps outside your door and the skytrain is a 10-minute walk or 5-minute bus ride away accessing most of the cities top attractions within 20 minutes. The many bike routes will likely get you where you need to go within 20 minutes as well.

But, you don't have to go far if you don't want to because the apartment boasts the perfect location for just becoming a local and checking out the city's best coffee shops, boutique stores, street buskers, artists, and festivals, and some of the most diverse and quality dining options offered in Vancouver.

Many restaurants and cafes double as intimate live entertainment venues in the evenings, in addition to the many cultural centres and theatres offering up excellent live performing art shows year round. Your hosts are very familiar with all that is offered on and off the drive and enjoy sharing our favourite spots with our guests.

Steps away from it all, yet the apartment is just far enough off 'the drive' that you can return home to a quiet place to just kick back on your deck, and you wouldn't know it was all around the corner.

Radiant in floor heating and many cozy features of the apartment make it just as inviting to curl up and relax inside with a book or a movie.

50Kbps high-speed internet, cable television, and Netflix.

***Please inquire about parking, if required. Neighbourhood street parking is limited, however we may be able to offer a designated parking space, subject to availability, and upon request only.

***The Vineyard Suite is one of two suites offered in the Grandview House. Please check The Mosaic Suite (VRBO #688598), as well, for availability options***
