About the property

Large self-contained private unit with full kitchen, laundry, and private patio.

Newly offered to the market!!! We have just bought new furniture and are excited to offer this self-contained two bedroom unit! The large bedrooms (12' x 14") have new queen size beds and we offer a queen size sofa bed for additional guests. The full bathroom has an adjustable shower head and full bathtub with a soap and shampoo dispenser for your convenience. You have two private entrances: one off the south facing patio and the main side entrance. We live on a very quiet residential street that is surprisingly close to the most popular beaches, shopping, international dining, transit, UBC, and downtown. If you are looking for a clean, very big (1000 sqft.), and quiet place to stay and enjoy your stay in Vancouver then this is it! There are cheaper places in other neighbourhoods but there are none that are as central, picturesque, quiet, safe and offers as many venues for shopping and dining as this one.

We love to travel to meet new people and see new things. We are looking forward to meeting new guests and help them enjoy our city as others have helped us to enjoy theirs. Let us extend our hospitality to you!

About Rick

Professional man with family. We have lived in Kits for over 26 years and believe this is the best neighbourhood in Vancouver. Combining safety, convenience, and spectacular scenery and recreational opportunities.

Rick purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Rick chose West Side

This unit appeals to those who want a lot of space combined with safety and privacy. A great place to relax with all the conveniences of home and steps away from all manners of shopping, entertainment, and dining.

What makes this apartment unique

The private patio has a small garden and is very peaceful and tranquil.

Perfect Vancouver Getaway House!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three nights with friends when we attended the Vancouver Folk Festival at Jericho Beach. Small space, but plenty of room for the four of us. Well equipped kitchen, dining area and a sweet patio. Two bedrooms with comfy beds and nice closets. The owner was easy to communicate with and responsive to requests.

Beautiful, quiet, safe neighborhood. Only a half hour walk to Jericho Beach, which has a bike path next to it that you can use to ride all the way to Stanley Park!

Great well-appointed, spacious spot from which to explore Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

In a city where space is at a premium, this basement apartment is super roomy, quiet, and located in a lovely safe neighbourhood while remaining central enough for easy access to all sights in Vancouver, and especially downtown and shops on west broadway and kits. While not fancy, it is very well appointed with a great kitchen. We loved our time here.

Family Vacation Excelent Property

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was exactly as described in the advertisement. It was very clean, spacious and was well equipped with everything you would need during your stay. The outside patio is cozy, private and is an added bonus to this property. The neighbourhood is in a great location and is close many attractions, and grocery stores. We would defiantly recommend this property to stay at and we will book again if we are in Vancouver for another vacation. Thank-you Rick
