Liz and Doug are semi-retired with three adult children who lived their entire life in this home while attending local schools The neighbourhood consists of mostly character houses with long term residents and there is a school about a half block away. This was a wonderful neighbourhood to raise a family in and we enjoyed it so much we never considered moving. Shopping/restaurants/transportation are only two blocks away.

Liz or Doug Cochran purchased this apartment in 1978

Our home is located in a delightful residential neighbourhood very close to downtown and to cultural/sporting/recreational amenities. The community is safe, friendly and warm and the beauty of our ocean and mountains makes this a perfect spot.

We love the architecture of the neighbourhood, the ability to easily walk down to the ocean and the familiarity of long term neighbours and friendly, accessible shopping.

LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and our two daughters stayed here for 5 nights while on vacation. We found the apartment had plenty of room and is nicely set up. The welcome package sent out ahead of time was great as it gave us several ideas of things to do and places to visit. We did not have to use our car at all as were able to get the bus or walk everywhere we went. We also found there were lots of restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We ate at Naam and at Burgoo which were both on 4th Avenue within walking distance and had great food. Walking though the neighborhoods was enjoyable as the gardens are beautiful. We were able to walk to the water and watch the sunset. For anyone visiting Vancouver for the first time, I would highly recommend Stanley Park. We rented bikes at a place just outside the park for an afternoon and biked all through and around the seawall of the park. It was awesome. We would definitely stay here again and would choose this type of set up over a hotel for sure.

KITSILANO APT

We loved this charming little apartment in Kitsilano and wished we had more time to spend in Vancouver. The owners are very professional and very friendly and even left us a delicious little blueberry loaf for our arrival. All our dealings with them were pleasant. We could walk to the beach and out for dinner and shopping and the kids even walked home from Granville Island. The binder in the suite had tons of really useful information. Thanks Liz!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
Very nice place to stay! Modern, quiet, great location, cozy, good price and family oriented. Liz had toys for the kids and hot cross buns for us when we arrived. She was very accommodating. Liz was quick to respond to my emails and questions. She is knowable of the area and give great information. We had a nice booklet of where the close amenities were. We needed to take our daughter to the walk in clinic, and knew where to go because of Liz's info. The only thing that we found tricky was parking on the street. Especially later at night, the street with full of cars and it is hard to find parking.

Owner's Response: Hello Jennifer,
Glad you enjoyed our place and that it was good for the kids.. Sorry to hear that parking was tight. We haven't heard of anyone else having problems but Kits is an older area and on street, free parking can get tricky at certain times!
Best wishes

A very private, cosy and nicely appointed appartment with all the comforts of home, on the lower level of a lovely house in a great neighbourhood. Close enough to lots of great shopping and an amazing range of local restaurants to choose from and all in walking distance, but far enough away to not feel we were in a big city . It was so nice to arrive to a fridge with enough basics to cook a breakfast the next morning and some snacks to keep us going until then , as we arrived late . We would stay here again the next time we are in Vancouver. We felt like guests staying with friends , rather that just tourists in a big city. Our hosts were lovely , and had gone to a lot of trouble and thought to provide any little thing we may have needed.

PERFECT EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully decorated with a large modern bathroom was perfect for me and three 16 year olds for a 4 day weekend. There is a queen room off of the kitchen separated by French doors and a Double room off of the entrance. The pull out couch is enormous and whenever the guys were watching tv all of them were able to lay side by side and have room to be comfortable. It was wonderful. The tv was a big screen which allowed me to even see it from the kitchen.

The bathroom is very large and looks like one out of a more modern magasine. Very spacious with a rain type shower head.
The linens were all black and white and looked very modern and pleasing to the eye.

The owners were very giving with their pots and pans to help supplement what was in the kitchen. I cooked large meals for these boys every night -Even a turkey dinner and it was marvellous as the owner was able to supply me with a roasting pan.
The owners were kind, warm and generous.
The first night we were there my nephews said " I like this WAY better than any hotel Auntie. Thanks." So that sums it up from the sixteen year olds. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.
