About Ian Freemantle
I am a professional who love my eclectic neighbourhood, walks on the beach, swimming in Kits pool and time in the beautiful outdoors. I enjoy socializing with my adult children, love traveling and visit somewhere every year. I have just taken over this beautiful vacation rental that the former owners have been running for almost a decade. Our goal is to continue to deliver the same excellent experience to our guests that the Heart of Kitsilano is known for. I will do our utmost to ensure that you, our guests, feel welcome and fully enjoy your stay with us. The former owner's guest book is full of warm and positive reviews. We have listed a few comments below. "The garden suite is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable." "This is a great place to stay and a wonderful retreat after enjoying the hustle and bustle that Kitsilano has to offer. We are looking forward to our next visit." "Travelling into the downtown by bus is straightforward, and driving out of the city is also easy. " "The property is very thoughtfully equipped, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The garden is pretty, and can be directly accessed from the living room. Highly recommended" "Can't recommend this place highly enough. It was good value, and we would definitely stay again! "

Why Ian Freemantle chose West Side
Kitsilano is close to everything while maintaining a true neighbourhood feel. Guests frequently comment on its proximity to everything and the large number of activities and attractions accessible to them during their stay. There are also great restaurants and theatres close by. It is a walking or cycling city, so a car is not necessary.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location. Relaxed neighbourhood, safe for strolling. Wonderful gardens and coffee shops everywhere. Beautiful beaches within walking distance. Friendly neighbours and lots to do. Our personal favourite is walking the beach early mornings or late at night.

Great location and wonderful stay
We loved this location for our trip to Vancouver. So glad that we chose Kitsilano and this property. The property was very clean and comfortable. The private patio was nice. There are many great restaurants and parks that are within walking distance. If we ever make it back to Vancouver, I would definitely want to stay here again!
Wedding/Half Marthon Trip
The property was as described and was an excellent place to stay. I would stay here again.
Great location and cute accomodations. Private area for outdoor table and chairs nice touch.
Fantastic, clean, comfortable
Ian made our stay in Vancouver comfortable and easy. His restaurant reccomendations were on point, the suite was within walking distance of coffee shops, grocery stores, and transit, and the suite itself was comfortable, super clean, and very well equipped. We can’t recommend it highly enough - fantastic.
Ideal spot to holiday in Vancouver for a week
The location of the house was ideal as it was a few blocks from the beach. We walked to Granville Island and took buses which are frequent and cheap to everywhere else. The main shopping streets are very close and hold an ideal mix of grocery stores, pubs and restaurants - in fact we did not have a car the first full week - we didn't need one. When we got tired wherever we were we got a taxi home for a very reasonable amount.
The house has a small backyard with tables and chairs and would benefit from a brolly for shade during the day but you can sit out the front which catches the sun on an evening. Ian , the owner, as he shares the house - it is clearly separated into two halves - was on hand for a slight problem we had which was solved straight away. Its an ideal spot and we had plenty to do across the week - I would highly recommend it.
There was no designated parking spot but we would have been able to park o the roadside if we had needed to.
Location, location, location
Fantastic apartment in a perfect location for exploring the best of Vancouver, particularly the West side and Kits beaches (which are within easy walking distance). The space worked very well for three adults to each have some privacy and yet enjoy common space together. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and we really had everything we needed for our five day stay. Parking was also quite easy-- and free-- on this street (not always the case in the greater neighborhood). We never got to use the patio, which is a great selling point of the property... but was good to know it's there!
Surrounded by spectacular beaches and mountains, Kitsilano is a premier location for its proximity to sports and entertainment activities. Only 2 blocks from a vibrant neighbourhood high street and 10 minutes from downtown theatres, museums, and shops. There are 3 large sandy beaches and a sailing centre only a 15 minute walk away. A bike friendly city with extensive bike transportation lanes, as well as beautiful parks (especially Stanley Park), and gardens. Local mountains provide winter skiing and summer hiking. Spectacular views of city and mountains are free.
