Kitsilano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Two separate 2 bedroom units, can be rented separately or sleep up to 13 combin

Avalon Guest Suite and Coach house is located on a quiet tree lined street but just steps from shops, restaurants and easy direct transportation links to downtown Vancouver and UBC. There are over 30 different restaurants and cafes located within 2 blocks of the accommodation! We are also within easy walking distance to several beautiful beaches.

We have 2 units on our property, each comprising of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.

Each unit can be rented separately or combined to accommodate larger groups.

The Avalon Suite is located at ground level in the beautifully restored and fully updated main house. The unit has 2 bedrooms with queen beds in each room and a queen sofa bed in the living room and can sleep up to 6 guests and a small child in a crib.

We installed a new kitchen and cozy gas fireplace in May 2013 and have fully updated the suite.

In addition we can offer our newly built 2 bedroom Coach House, located on the rear of our property (just across the garden from the suite), offering luxury accommodation on 2 levels for up to 7 guests. This new Coach house is fully self contained and built to the highest standard using eco friendly materials.

Our accommodation is ideal for couples who seek the spaciousness of our accommodation, families with children (we have baby equipment, toys and a child friendly property) and larger groups wishing to travel together.

Each unit has a private outdoor patio with grill.

Avalon Guest Suite has been awarded a rating of 98% by WalkScore - a walker’s paradise!

Here is what some of our guests have to say...: Great Find!

'We visited Vancouver for four days with our two sons, aged one and four, and wanted a comfortable place in a great neighbourhood. The Avalon Guest Suite was perfect. The apartment is comfortable and clean, and the location is great. It is located on a charming, tree-lined street with a short walk from the shops on Broadway.' ~DA

'Loved this bright, beautifully decorated suite. It's in a great safe neighbourhood, within walking distance to everything you would ever need...and more. We were there in October and the maple trees were turning their gorgeous colours.

The suite is very well equipped for preparing your own meals. Grocery stores are close by. You don't really need a car.

Thanks to the O'Dwyer family for a lovely stay. We will be back next year...' ~HappyTrails

Our neighbourhood....: Kitsilano, colloquially knows as “Kits” is one of Vancouver’s premiere Neighbourhoods and is located on the city’s west side. It is bordered to the North by two beaches, Kitsilano and Jericho beach and is home to two distinct commercial areas. The first located along Broadway between Larch and Blenheim streets, only steps from Avalon Guest Suite, while the other is along 4th Ave between Balsam and Burrard streets.

Kitsilano is a great neighbourhood to explore on foot, with its many wonderful shops and restaurants as well as parks and beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed January 8, 2014

We loved staying at the Coach House. You really feel at home since the moment you enter, it is so cozy and welcoming. We are a family of five and we were very comfortable with the spaces. Everything was so clean, and that is a very important thing for me. Julia really made us feel like we were special guests, there was a lot of details, like fresh flowers, basket of fruit, milk in the fridge and a delicious homemade bread. There were also toys for the children to play during bath time!

All in all, Avalon Coach House is the perfect place to stay for a family that is looking for other options instead of a hotel room. On our next trip to Vancouver will definitely go back! That´s for sure! Thank you so much Julia and O´Dwyer family.

One lovely little coach house!

  • 5 of 5
My contact with the owner was wonderful and very helpful. The owner provided very good customer service. We had everything we needed plus more upon arrival. The house was great for our large group, especially for our children who enjoyed the backyard and trampoline. Everything was clean and neat and in good condition. The location was excellent and close to many things. We were very happy with our stay, would recommend to others and stay there again ourselves in the future. We will definitely do a vacation rental again as it's much better than being in a hotel when travelling with a family.

Exceptional Property!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 was thoroughly impressed with the Avalon Coach House! It is clean, bright and well appointed. Julia has thought of everything to make her renters feel at home. We were greeted with delicious muffins, fruit, and fresh flowers. It is extremely convenient to nearby shopping, restaurants, and public transportation. Kitsilano is a beautiful area of Vancouver! We highly recommend this property and hope to return some day.

The Suite is beautifully decorated with a thought lay out, and looks even better in real life than in the pictures. It feels like a home away from home, with lots of facilities to make your stay comfortable. A fantastic place to stay with young children, where they can enjoy the delights of the garden whilst mum and dad relax on the newly refurnished patio. Julia was the perfect host and very helpful with any enquiries we had. I would definitely recommend the Suite and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Bright and roomy accommodation on a quiet lane

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Coach House. It is very clean, modern and roomy with comfortable furniture, high quality appliances and a generous supply of linens. We especially relished the high ceilings on the main floor as well as the little private patio. An unexpected bonus was its convenience to the shopping district along Broadway. There is a supermarket, big drug store and at least a dozen nice restaurants within about a five minute walk. Julia graciously allowed me to practice on the lovely piano in her house.

Great stay in a quiet location in Kitsilano

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an absolutely amazing stay at the Avalon coach house. When we arrived the owner Julia greeted us and allowed us into the suite early so we could settle our daughter for her nap. We usually book hotels whenever we stay in Vancouver but due to wanting to have additional space for relatives to stay we decided to book an apartment. We usually stay in hotels downtown such as the Pan Pacific or the Fairmont Pacific Rim, both of which usually cost us about $400-$450 a night including valet parking. Compared to a hotel you have the convenience of being to wash your clothes (which is a must with a 2 year old) and being able cook your own meals. The price is highly appealing and competitive, with free parking and WIFI as a major bonus.

With regards to the coach house itself:

There were baked goods to welcome us and other items such as milk to get us started during our stay
There were toys available for the little ones to play with (our daughter loved the rocking horse)
We felt there was ample space for our family and additional family members who also stayed with us
We were close to multiple shops on W Broardway
Kitsilano beach is a 5 minute drive from the suite or about a 25-30 minute walk

Next time my family and I stay in Vancouver, we will be renting the Avalon Coach House again!
