WESTSIDE VANCOUVER - EXCELLENT CENTRAL LOCATION, GREAT HOME

Dunbar-Southlands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Dunbar home is fully equipped, including wireless internet, laundry and plenty of space to lounge about inside and outside.

Centrally located in a great neighborhood, 15 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes to downtown or Granville Island, 10 minutes to the local beaches, and 5 minutes from the largest park in the city (Pacific Spirit Park). Public transit is one block away and a convenient option to get around the City.

Upstairs, we have four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. The other three bedrooms share a bathroom. High ceilings and skylights in the common areas provide plenty of space and natural light. On the main floor, there is an open family room and fully equipped kitchen with new appliances. In addition, there is a dining room, living room, den and washroom. A desktop computer and wireless printer are provided for your use. Feel free to bring a laptop/ tablet/ smartphone if you wish to use the wireless connectivity. Free local telephone calls. On the lower floor is a theater room with large tv screen and surround sound to watch sports and movies etc. Full laundry facilities are also conveniently located.

Our South facing backyard enjoys sun throughout the day. The deck is partly shaded with a large Dogwood tree beside the house. Lounge on an easy chair and watch the kids play on the lawn. Enjoy the privacy created by mature plants and rose bushes surrounding our property.

There are a couple of wonderful parks a few blocks away. We live one block away from an elementary school, which has a playground, slides, swings etc.

Great shopping is about ten minutes walk from home. You can pick up your groceries at the neighbourhood market and enjoy window shopping on the way back home. There are also a number of cute little coffee houses, where you can sit back and read the morning paper with your favourite brew. A walk or short drive will get you to Kerrisdale and Oakridge Mall for additional shopping.

Some of Vancouver’s best restaurants (eg Provence, Vij’s, etc.) are mere minutes from home. To work up an appetite, jog through Pacific Spirit Park, wander along Kitsilano Beach, or play a round of golf at one of a number of courses close by.

Vandusen Botanical Gardens, UBC Museum of Anthropology and Science World are all great outings for those visiting Vancouver.

Families with children will find our home roomy and functional. Adults without kids will enjoy the peace and tranquility of our spacious home and wonderful neighbourhood.

Please read through our guestbook below. We have had many happy guests over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a wonderful week in your house. Your house was quite large and very well equipped for our family.



Also, we enjoyed the area that was close to various services. I recommend it to anyone who wants to visit with family in Vancouver.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here at the end of August 2014, and would highly recommend it! House is nicely laid out and conveniently situated - it literally only takes you about 10-15 minutes to get anywhere you would want to go in DT Vancouver. It is also spotlessly clean, and is very well equipped for a comfortable stay.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening your lovely home to us. We had a wonderful stay with our family of four. The house is exceptional – it provided all the comforts of home, and then some. The owners are friendly and helpful with instructions for operating things and suggestions in the area. We loved the quiet and relaxing Dunbar community – with its grand old trees and gorgeous homes. Your home was the perfect location to experience all that Vancouver has to offer. We would love to return.

Great week in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5
We needed a home big enough for our two families to stay (each family has two children ages 5-11). This house was perfect! Very spacious and comfortable. The backyard and back deck were perfect for us as we could watch the children while we bbq'd etc... The kitchen also looks out over backyard. The location within Vancouver was nice as well- walking distance to Dunbar for groceries or coffee or one of many playgrounds. We had a rental car and the location was good for all the things we wanted to do around Vancouver.
Highly recommend this clean, comfortable, spacious home for a family rental.

Family wedding get together

  • 5 of 5
I am very happy to say that our stay was extremely comfortable! The house was most certainly what we had seen on the rental website. We had a wonderful photography session inside & out the morning of the wedding. The kitchen was great and we made use of the bbq as well! Sitting on the back deck and 'hoola hooping contests' in the back yard were enjoyed. The privacy of it all was exceptional. We did talk to a couple of neighbours, and they were friendly. The entire house was roomy and very neat. All in all, we quite enjoyed our stay, and the lack of stress for us being together somewhere 'unknown' for us was greatly appreciated.

New Years In Vancouver

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location. Easy access for both public transport and driving to Vancouver sites and to the US border. The house was well appointed with all the mod cons and everything we needed for our stay. The local shops for groceries were easily accessible and convenient.

Excellent house that I would recommend for families of all ages.

Just Right

  • 5 of 5
My family – I, my wife, our two adult sons, and their fiancés – wanted to celebrate everyone’s having just graduated from one university or another by getting together someplace far away from Southern California, someplace remote, someplace foreign – someplace like Vancouver. We got a late start with the planning, and our first searches yielded nothing available – nothing the size we needed, nothing for the only eight days in August we all just happened to have free, nothing to fit the budget of two teachers who had decided to live large – well, maybe a slim large.

VRBO led us to a perfect house. And it was available.

We were rather new at this – relying on an Internet find and VRBO – but we offered up the credit cards, crossed our fingers, and …

It worked. It all worked. The house was easy to find, and, when we arrived, it opened right up: bright, clean, spacious, well-appointed – perfect. We were dazzled.

We settled in. We shopped for groceries up on Dunbar; Stong’s took our American ATM cards. However we forgot such things as sugar and salt – only to find that the house had both. We went out to eat at Brick Oven, an Italian place also up on Dunbar, where we found the owner seated with his family, eating his own food. We loved the guy – and the food and the wine he recommended.

The neighborhood was just as advertised – quiet and close enough to other restaurants and attractions to call it convenient.

Two wrinkles – which I offer up mainly to establish my credibility as a reviewer. Both sons remarked that that did not fit in their beds. The younger is 6’4,” the older 6’6.” So, if you arrive in Vancouver without giants, you should be fine. Also, even though the theater room has an enormous screen – it is indeed a home-style cinema – I couldn’t get it to work. Mind you, I was the only one who tried. Perhaps my techie sons could have handled the matter. But the house provided so much opportunity to be with family – a back yard with a porch, a barbeque, and wild blackberries; family rooms here and there; a very large kitchen – that I have to say, No one missed TV. I told the owner afterward, and he said I should have called him or contacted the neighbor, numbers he’d provided us. The truth is that I did not want to reveal my ignorance, perhaps providing too much insight into American behavior, and I certainly did not want to see the look of Canadian compassion. We really did not miss TV.

And we did love the house.
