Vancouver 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.

We stayed at the Coach House for 3 nights in February 2014. Having been to Vancouver multiple times before, we decided to try staying in Kitsilano this time around. We're so glad we did! The house location is perfect for walking around, and there are many things to do within walking distance or a short car ride away.

The Coach House itself was just great for my husband and I. It was quite clean, spacious, and very well-designed. We had plenty of room, and I think the house would be great for up to 4 people (since there is only one bathroom). Like others have mentioned, it was very sweet of Julia to have flowers, fruit and some scones waiting for us when we arrived.

Our experience was very positive, and we would love to come back to Kits and stay at the Coach House again!

We have stayed in Julia and Michael's suite a few years ago and in their new coach house this time. Both places are outstanding! Pleasantly decorated and super clean!!! Having laundry is a big plus when travelling with kids! The place is in a great area, quite side street, but within easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Thanks again for a warm welcome and a great stay!

"Fantastic Christmas at the Coach House"

"Fantastic Christmas at the Coach House"
  • Submitted: Feb 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My family and I stayed in the Coach house for 5 nights over Christmas and couldn't have been happier with everything about it. Julia's welcoming cake and flowers were wonderful not to mention a lovely little Christmas tree inside as well as out in the courtyard.There were 5 of us including 3 adult children and we had plenty of room. The bedrooms were lovely with very comfortable beds. The main bedroom was large with plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom was well equipped with plenty of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. My son (22 yr old and tall) slept on the sofa bed downstairs. He said it was the most comfortable sofa bed that he has ever slept on. The couches were very comfortable and the dining table although small was big enough for the 5 of us - it was great to find extra chairs as so often places are not equipped for 5 even though it is advertised for that number. The kitchen was very well equipped. We baked cookies on Christmas Eve, made mulled wine and eggnog, cooked a huge Christmas Lunch on Christmas Day including a full turkey with lots of vegetables and we had everything we needed as far as pots/pans/bowls/plates/champagne glasses etc went. It was fantastic. The Coach house was cosy and warm and we all loved it. Julia and her family went out of there way to accommodate us when we popped in to see if they had any games - and found Vancouver Monopoly for us to play which was such fun. Kitsilano was a fantastic area full of interesting shops and cafes and beautiful houses all decorated for Christmas. We loved Sophie's cosmic cafe. It was a lovely area even though it was quiet being Christmas. It was very handy having Safeway up the road to do all our shopping for our Christmas lunch as it was very well equipped. We had a car so didn't need public transport. It was a quick trip to the beaches nearby and into downtown.
We all really loved the Coach House, highly recommend it and would love to stay here again next time we visit beautiful Vancouver.

"Best place we ever stayed in Vancouver."
Immaculately clean, spacious, and well-equipped accommodation located in a great part of Kitsilano. Very close to shops, great restaurants and beautiful Kits Beach, with easy bus access to downtown and UBC. Great place for families but also for couples. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts Mike and Julia are the icing on the cake. We always come back.

"Wonderful stay at Avalon Coach House"

"Wonderful stay at avalon Coach House"
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.
