Property description

Welcome to your home away from home in one of Vancouver's most pleasant areas: Kitsilano. Known colloquially as "Kits", the neighborhood is named after Squamish chief August Jack Khatsahlano and belonged to the Squamish First Nation until 1946. It is relaxed, safe, friendly and very walkable close to downtown and beaches. Formerly a Greek neighbourhood it has retained much of its European feel, especially on Broadway with great restaurants, cafes and organic food stores. You are also a few blocks from plenty of retail, on Broadway as well as trendy 4th avenue, ranging from outdoor equipment to high end fashion.

Relax with a glass of wine on your patio in our beautiful secluded garden, which has a BBQ for your use. If you have children they can freely play in the safety of a fully fenced and child friendly garden. Enter through the French doors into the well designed living area with its big and comfortable sofa, where you can read a good book or watch a show or movie on the flat screen TV. For cooking there is a brand new kitchen with dishwasher, and restaurant grade gas stove. If you don't feel like cooking, Vancouver also happens to be well-known for its great restaurants. Within a walking distance of a few blocks you have a large selection of restaurants, deli's and neighbourhood bars, or why not take a short busride/drive to downtown or the eccentric Commercial Drive.

The master bedroom with a queen bed is conveniently separated from the 2nd bedroom with two beds. An additional bed is also available in the third bedroom. The new bathroom has a bathtub with shower and large sink. The separate laundry room has a new large washer/dryer.

Many guests appreciate the excellent quality of the amenities provided, such as high quality kitchen utensils, cutlery and crockery, pots and pans, basic grocery staples (such as olive oil, tea, sugar), good linens, towels, iron/ironing board, etc.

For those visiting family or friends you are free to bring them over to enjoy a barbeque, knowing there is plenty of room, inside and outdoors, to entertain them and enjoy the beautiful Vancouver summer.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our beautiful British Columbia, regardless of where you end up staying. If you have any questions about the apartment or the area, before or during your time here, we are more than willing to provide pointers to help making your stay the best possible. Being the new owners of this lovely house, listed here by the previous owners with a full five-star rating, we are excited about having you over.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are a professional couple who enjoy our eclectic neighbourhood, walks on the beach, swimming in Kits pool and time in the beautiful outdoors. We enjoy socializing with our adult children, love traveling and visit family in Europe each year. We 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. We 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 the Owner Chose Kitsilano (Kitsilano, Vancouver, BC, Canada):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
