Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, we came to Vancouver and a few years later made Kitsilano our home since 1976. We've raised 3 girls in this house, all who have graduated from UBC.

Elaine Keating purchased this house in 1975

We bought this property because of its location. Kitsilano is the perfect area to have raised our children. Our girls attended the elementary school across the street and later went to the high school about 10 minutes walking distance. The beaches are about a 20 minute walk and UBC is a 20 minute bus ride - our family seldom needed a car to get around.

This neighbourhood is unique in Vancouver in that several of our neighbours are a major part of each other's families. We've been extremely fortunate to have developed such close ties over the years. It is the reason none of us have any desire to leave the area.

We had a great stay in this suite. It is exactly as advertised - in a great location, clean and modern, nice little outdoor patio, quiet and well-equipped. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

AS ADVERTISED! - IDEAL LOCATION; CLEAN, FULL MODERN FACILITIES, QUIET NEIGHBOURHOOD, COMFORTABLE BED

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently completed five nights here and recommend highly!
Perfect Area - location was major reason we chose this suite. As former Vancouver residents, we knew the suite location was very, very convenient: set in lush green residential sweetspot, between West 4th Avenue and West Broadway, and handy to all their shops - menswear, ladies fashions, fresh produce, bakeries, sports/cycling, butchers, florists, supermarkets, etc. and a few short blocks from the University Endowment Lands, and Kitsilano Beach and Spanish Banks. Mere 2-3 kms from downtown Vancouver, across the Burrard Street Bridge, an easy and pleasant 20 min. walk.
Initial booking and payment processing online, and final accounting, including return crediting of damage deposit, were prompt and problem-free, thanks to Elaine Keating. (A personal item I had inadvertently left behind was received by me via express post within five days of our departure).

GREAT LOCATION. NEAT. CLEAN. COMFORTABLE.

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at Elaine and Ted's garden suite in early April. It was a wonderful home for us for that length of time. Well appointed. Tastefully decorated. Well equipped kitchenette. Full size fridge. Large comfortable bed. Plenty of storage space for gear. Good climate control system. Comfy lounge, that converts to a very comfortable queen size bed. Cable TV. Wifi. And in an absolute prime position.
We fell in love with Kits. Great neighbourhood. Plenty of dining and drinking options. Safeway nearby. Transport options aplenty. Highly recommended.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
A perfect Vancouver gem - we have stayed at many owner-operated rental flats around the world and this one was the loveliest.

Absolutely everything you could need is here, in a peaceful and elegant setting. The decor is tasteful and warm, making the flat very homey. Unlike some other rentals where the kitchen may be short-stocked or the bathroom low on towels, this one has everything you could ever need - better stocked than our own kitchen! We even had sushi dishes and chopsticks for our delicious local sushi takeaway dinner.

The local area is the nicest in Vancouver - it's where the locals would all chose to live! Quiet and family oriented but packed with great shops, restaurants and transport links. Perfectly located between downtown, the beach and UBC with the stunning Museum of Anthropology. No car needed but we had one had no trouble with parking.

We travelled with a small baby and particularly appreciated the roomy bathtub, the playground nearby and the best kids bookstore we've ever been too! Elaine and Ted are wonderful hosts who know the area intimately and are very sensitive to the needs of their guests. The flat is totally private and benefits from its own entrance.

We can't wait to return again soon. :)

A TRULY LOVELY PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The basement suite is brilliantly located between two lively and interesting shopping and restaurant streets (w4th and broadway). It is also very good for public transport and you can easily manage without a car. The suite is immaculate, clean, peaceful, cosy, comfy and very tastefully decorated. It has everything you would possibly need. I absolutely loved my 6 night stay there and was very sad to leave. I will certainly be back and if I were visiting Vancouver again I would not stay anywhere else. A brilliant place to say.

GREAT SPOT, CLOSE TO SHOPS EASY TO WALK TO, SHORT BUS RIDE TO BEACHES AND NOT FAR TO DOWNTOWN

  • 5 of 5
We chose area because we were attending a function at University of BC and Kitsilano Beach. It's only 2 blocks to shops, supermarket, great local produce stores to the east and the same to retail area to the west, with lots of restaurant choice both ways. Great bus service routes within two blocks. The apartment is fairly recently updated, clean with modern appliances, great for two people. We spent 8 days here, 4 days without a car and used the local transit system, then rented a car to tour the coast and mountains. No parking but we had no trouble finding parking space on street within 1/2 block of apartment. Good neighbourhood for walking, we would recommend it as an ideal home base for Vancouver and area explorations
