We are Rebekah and Malcolm. We have lived here since 1987, brought up our two kids, Shenny and Anpayo, in this house, and have many friendly neighbours. Rebekah works as a counsellor for kids and families; Malcolm designs houses and First Nations cultural buildings. Our kids are grown, our daughter moved out, our son at Lanagara college, and still living at home. Our grandson, Carter (2), also lives with us.
Malcolm McSporran or Rebekah Sells purchased this apartment in 1987
We bought this house because we liked the neighbourhood, and we have lived in this area since 1978. We turned our garden level apartment into a vacation rental by completely re-buillding it, because we realized there were so many visitors interested in staying in the Kitsilano area
A person staying in this neighbourhood can enjoy all the amenities of Vancouver, with very little travel time.
My wife and I stayed at Rebekah's and Malcolm's for two nights in early August. This one-bedroom unit is nicely appointed with comfortable bed, couch and chairs. Lots of classy touches. Although it is a basement unit there are plenty of windows to make it bright and airy. There is a private backyard. Their home is located on a quiet tree-lined street, but only a short walk to great restaurants on W 4th Ave and W Broadway. We parked the car for the two days and walked and cycled. Nice hosts and great value.
My family spent three nights at Rebekah and Malcolm's and it exceeded our expectations. The suite was immaculate, both bed and sofa bed very comfortable, and the location was excellent for exploring the beach and the many shops and restaurants (on both 4th Ave and Broadway) by foot. The hosts were welcoming, generous and kind, spoiling us with home baked goods on two occasions. I highly recommend Malcolm and Rebekah's place.
My husband and I used this Kitsilano rental for four nights in September, and enjoyed every moment of it. Our host (Malcolm) was there to greet us when we arrived; he and his wife live in the house so if there were to be any problem they are not far away (we did not have any problems!). They are decent people and would respond fairly to any issues.
On arrival, the apartment was very clean, with home-baked pastries waiting for us. Malcolm is an architect/designer and did a beautiful job with the space and its decor. As one other reviewer said, the online photos do not do it justice. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was good and we had enough space to put things. The kitchen was well-stocked. We did not use the TV so we cannot vouch for that, but the WiFi worked well.
What made the difference was the friendliness of our hosts. We like to chat and interact with our hosts when we go to a rental or a B&B – we find that we learn a lot that way. Malcolm went a step beyond and invited us to join a personal party upstairs on our second night…we were blown away by that gesture and had a great evening with interesting local people. However, he was not pushy … if we had not wanted to engage to that extent, he would have given us our space.
The location was fabulous. The house is right in the middle of a lively neighborhood, yet on a quiet residential street. There were a lot of markets and restaurants (all sorts of ethnic eateries and pubs) within a few blocks. Malcolm provided us with a list but the choices are endless. We especially enjoyed the flatbreads and peanut soup at a restaurant called “Establishment Lounge” – the décor was a bit glitzy for our taste but the food was wonderful. Also, the rental is a short easy drive to the Granville Market, beaches, UBC and other areas.
This experience was one of the highlights of our trip to the Pacific Northwest. We highly recommend this rental for people of any age.
Malcolm and Rebekah have done a wonderful job with their garden suite and provide all the necessities to accommodate their guests, including flowers in the eating area and the bathroom and comfortable chairs on the patio. We highly recommend this suite to one and all and we thank Malcolm and Rebekah for their warm hospitality.
Me and my sister rented Malcolm and Rebekah's apartment for a week, we have friends living on Commercial Drive who we visited easily by catching the express 99 bus. We also spent time doing typical tourist activities and we found that Kits was a perfect base for us. Downtown was no more than 30 mins away via public transport.
The apartment was huge for 2 people (probably because I'm used to London UK sized apartments!), it also had all the facilities we needed. The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home! Bathroom has a great powerful shower. The lounge has an apple tv box, which we found really useful on the one rainy day we experienced.
Malcolm and Rebekah were very hospitable and it was great to stay in their apartment. The whole booking process was smooth and everything was as described upon arrival, making it all very easy.We were also kindly given a list of things to do before we arrived which helped us plan our time. If I found myself in Vancouver again, I would certainly stay again.
We spent a total of 7 nights at Rebekah and Malcolm's Garden Suite and were very happy with it. I agree with the previous reviewer that the photos don't do it justice! We were there in December and, coming from a hot country, I was worried about being cold, but the suite was very warm and cosy, with a basket of blankets provided in the lounge area just in case. All of the fittings are of a very high standard and the many small touches made a real difference. This is probably the cleanest accommodation that I have ever stayed in! If I visit Vancouver again this will be my first choice of place to stay.
