The INUKSHUK LOFT is a beautifully designed contemporary one-bedroom apartment with a separate street entrance. Designed as an open living space, the loft allows a flow between the living area, eating nook and kitchen, all with generous natural light. Dropped rich wood ceilings create a sense of room division without compromising space, yet adding to a warm ambiance. The Tiffany-inspired chandelier is a highlight in the living area and its colours and design are reflected in the loft’s inclusive décor. The kitchen fits perfectly in a sensible layout where the cooking area is easily maneuverable and nicely accented with a glass-tile mosaic backsplash. The French doors lead from the kitchen out onto the extensive upper deck, expanding the indoor/outdoor living space. The generous-sized bedroom with its low-platform bed features vaulted ceiling and dynamic wall colors. An antique-inspired computer desk adds a contrasting touch to the contemporary atmosphere. Storage space is paramount in this apartment and it is provided by two unusually deep storage areas both hidden behind contemporary dark-stained, opaque glass sliding panels.

B&B at its Best!

B&B at its Best!
  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 19, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
We stayed in July 2010 for 4 nights. The owner made us feel very welcome and showed us the public areas for our use - lounge/kitchen/separate entrance/bedroom and bathroom. We had the Kitsilano bedroom with separate bathroom, which suited us fine. The bathroom could be locked so that nobody else used it. We had loads of clean fresh towels daily and the basic toiletries were provided.

The complimentary drinks and snacks in the kitchen were very welcome and nice to have. Guests have full use of the TV and there is an internet station with computer for your use. All decor is very up-do-date with no frilly curtains what-so-ever!

Breakfasts were very good, with plenty of choice and great fresh coffee. My husband cannot have caffiene and Joanne had even purchased some Decaff especially for him. Joanne often popped down in the evening when we had returned from our day out, and had a chat, which was really nice and we gained a lot of local knowledge too.

There are loads of brochures available of what to do in Vancouver, and advice and details of how to get somewhere is always on offer. The B&B is located in a very pleasant area with good access to Downtown Vancouver. We would stay at House on Dunbar again.
