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.
