About the property

Your Sanctuary In The Heart Of Vancouver.

The Garden Suite has been newly renovated and is beautifully decorated with eclectic art and a blend of vintage and modern furnishings. There is a flat screen TV and blue tooth MP3 player in the living room. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need, including coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, dishwasher bakeware and serving dishes . The bathroom has a soaker tub and both hand held and rain shower heads.

Note: The suite is located in our private family home and there is some sound transfer between floors. We make an effort to be quiet, especially during sleeping times, but please let us know if you have any specific needs or requests. Also, being on the ground floor, the ceilings, (8', 7') are comfortable for most but low for some. There are a couple of low spots in the hallway.

The suite looks out onto the garden, which has three separate areas: one secluded spot with hot tub, (shared with upstairs guests); a large private covered area with table, bench, chairs and BBQ; and a quite corner for relaxing with a book. There is one parking spot off the garden.

Kits Point is a special neighborhood. Surrounded on three sides by beaches and public parkland overlooking English Bay, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains. It is just across the Burrard Street Bridge from Downtown Vancouver. Everything you need is at your doorstep here including specialty shops, wonderful cafes, pubs, world class restaurants and shopping along West 4th Avenue. The parks surrounding "The Point" are home to The Macmillan Space Centre, the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Museum of Vancouver, which is a stop for Vancouver's hop-on-hop-off Trolley Tours.

The gorgeous Oceanside parkland include, beachside tennis and basketball courts, Kits Beach Pool, the worlds largest, (115 meter), saltwater swimming pool and the Kitsilano Showboat, an iconic Vancouver summer outdoor performance spot!

Granville Island with it's artists' studios, cafes, bars, restaurants and live theatres is just a beautiful 15 minute walk away along the waterfront. Skiing is beautiful at the local mountains, Grouse, Cypress and Seymour, each a 30-40 minute drive away.

Downtown Vancouver is a beautiful walk away across the Burrard street Bridge, or five minutes by car or bus.

About Joanne

We love to travel, but find it hard to leave our beloved Kit's Point. Wherever we go and as much as we love it we're always amazed by the breathtaking beauty of home once we return.

Joanne purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Joanne chose West Side

We originally bought here because of the gorgeous surrounding parks and beaches. Since then we've come to love the entire neighbourhood, not just the convenience to everything, but the feeling of community here.

What makes this apartment unique

Surrounded by nature, yet close to everything the city has to offer.

Just great location to enjoy the local scene .

  • 5 of 5

The apt was very clean and well stocked. Walnut street has huge shady trees, so close to beach, transportation, shopping and yummy restaurants. Hot tub broke down but attempts to repair were immmediate and no fault of owners. Nice off street parking space and secluded quiet garden entrance was appreciated. Owner helpful and pleasant. Would love some bicycles but many are available for rent through city esp near Stanley park. Highly recommend!!!!!
