Overview

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.

Exceptional lovely Coach House

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and 4 or our family members stayed here for our daughters wedding. It is immaculately clean, bright and so very well designed and we all felt very safe and very comfortable. Julia thought of everything we could possible need for our stay, even the most delicious Cinnamon bread and fruit basket. Although the Coach House is steps away from shops and transportation, we noticed how quiet it was at night to sleep, especially after busy days with the family wedding. We highly recommend this rental property and are planning to return in the near future. Thank you Julia for making this place so lovely. Blessings

Myself, husband, 2 year old son and my mother and father in law stayed at the coach house for 5 night. We never imagined to be staying in such a beautifully presented guest house.

The location and local amenities were perfect for us all. 10 mins walk to the beach, 2 mins to restaurants and boutique shops.
The guest house is fully equipt with every single piece of kitchen equipment, the layout and furniture are delicately chosen for style, comfort and making this guest house out way any other! It's quirky ness, charm and beauty made our holiday. Special thanks to Julia and her family for making our stay perfect. From fresh pastries on arrival, hand delivered fresh laundered beach towels and the use of their beautiful garden- this is a must say for any vancouver visitors! We will be back!!

The Carr's!

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.

Map

Kitsilano is Vancouver's premier neighbourhood, located just ourside the downtown core.

Characterised by its leafy tree-lined streets and miles of beautiful sandy beaches, it is the ideal location from which to explore Vancouver and its surroundings.

Our vacation home is located in the centre of Kitsilano, on a quiet street, yet within steps of cafes, restaurants and shops and direct bus links to downtown Vancouver and UBC (the University of British Columbia).

Walk through a vibrant neighbouthood, sip your coffee on an outdoor patio and enjoy sunset on the beach in Kitsilano!
