Overview

Mount Pleasant House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

This restored, charming and intimate Victorian home is the owners’ winter residence and is ideal if you want to stay away from commercial properties. The residence occupies about 2000 sq ft of the main and second floor of a four storey Victorian Home, and is available from May to October. It can accommodate a small group or up to nine guests, but you will be charged only for the number of bedrooms you use and the number of guests in your party and will have the exclusive use of the residence.

The house is located off Broadway and Clark, in a very quiet and tidy homeowner occupied neighbourhood.

Centrally located, this residence is two short blocks away from Broadway, a main artery that allows easy connection to UBC University, the beaches and the downtown area on one side and Commercial Avenue, with its famous café and restaurants, on the other side.

It is two blocks away from Clark, your fastest connection to the airport and to Freeway 99 to Seattle; one block away from 12th Ave, the direct connection to Trans-Canada Highway 1.

The residence retains its original stained glass windows and is furnished with antiques and family heirlooms.

You will relax in the evening breeze on the deck, ready for a candlelight dinner or for a fun barbeque and will enjoy a lovely view of the city and the mountains from the master bedroom and bathroom.

Custom-made beds, two-hundred-counts 100% cotton linen and custom made mattresses will insure you the best comfort while you sleep.

The professional kitchen features custom made cabinets, marble counter top, professional gas stove, fridge, dishwasher, upright freezer, microwave, all the utensils.

In one of the bathrooms you will soak in bubbles floating in the original bear-claw-foot tub.

About The Owner

We are two architects, originally from Italy, where we return every year. This is our winter residence in Canada.

When we saw this house, twelve years ago, we knew we had found the right home for us.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Mount Pleasant

The quiet neighbour, the balanced location between two main commercial arteries — Main St and Commercial St — the easy accessibility to downtown, UBC, the beaches, the airport have made this location a perfect choice for us.

What makes this house unique

In addition to that, our home had to be flexible, organized, comfortable, and had to have the beauty and warmth of an historical building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice area of town

  • 3 of 5
This house is in a central location of Vancouver with good access to downtown and bike paths. Owners are very friendly and there is lots of space in the house with a well stocked kitchen. Dining room and Living room are large and open. There are lots of restaurants, coffee shops and places to grocery shop very close by. The furniture is a bit uncomfortable and I was kept up until 2 in the morning by the neighbours that live above this unit. Not their fault, they are just late night people, and the house is old and sounds get through the floor pretty easy. Overall a great place in a safe and nice area of town.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Regarding anything that needs our prompt attention, we recommend our guests to contact at any hour our local manager. In your case, this would have insured you peaceful and quiet sleeps during your sojourn! Out of fourteen groups staying at our house this summer, we received thirteen very positive and enthusiastic comments. Therefore, it would be interesting to find out what you consider "a bit uncomfortable" in our furniture!

Australians enjoy the house

  • 5 of 5
We have recently rented the house for a two week period. Our son was getting married in Vancouver and we had a number of Australian friends staying with us over the time period. Everything about the house worked well- we were able to have a group for a main meal and use the dining room and we also enjoyed a barbecue on the patio. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and how spacious the bedrooms were. Everyone could unpack and hang up clothes in the spacious closets.

The kitchen had everything we needed and we soon all felt at home. We found Maria excellent to work with prior to booking the house and she was very accommodating and flexible to work with our complex arrangement of pairs of people coming and going. Mel the house liaison manager, was just lovely and made us feel very welcome upon our arrival and was there if we needed him. We arrived early from our cruise and Mel organised it so we could leave our luggage at the house which meant we were free to tour the city.

The location of the house is great- a short walk to the supermarket and all forms of public transport. The house is also within walking distance of Commericial Drive which is a great strip of interesting retail shops, coffee shops and restaurants - a funky part of Vancouver!!

Parking was readily available just outside the house so that was also very convenient.

The house is very spacious and we were able to host a number of our Canadian friends for get togethers during our stay. The photos of the house provide a very accurate description of the house and it is very charming with all of its unique art. We were lucky with the weather so we could enjoy sitting out on the back patio.

We would highly recommend this house to any group of people visiting Vancouver and wanted a "home like" experience rather than a hotel experience.

Large Group - Could not be happier!

  • 5 of 5
This was the most charming house full or personality and character! We had 7 girls and 2 adults. We had plenty of room for sleeping, showering, making and eating food and gathering in the living room. There is art everywhere - adorable, quirky handmade items everywhere you look. We made a scavenger hunt out of it all one day to see if the girls could tell us which room had what in it.

The dining room table was big enough for our whole group and the kitchen was perfect for what we needed. We used the washing machine and dryer one day and even the grill out back. I loved sitting in the red chairs with my morning coffee. The little "secret garden" as we called it was so peaceful.

We had no parking issues at all. We utilized front street parking as well as the alleyway out back. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. The owners are so kind and return emails promptly. The manager who met us at the house the first and last days was very friendly and helpful.

From the house we visited Whistler to go zip lining, Richmond to go killer whale watching, Jericho Beach to go kayaking and we went to a chocolate buffet for dinner one night.

I would not hesitate to go back here again. I highly recommend it for all ages.
