Hastings-Sunrise (Hastings Park) House Rental Photos and Description

Located in the Hastings-sunrise District, Located a Short 7-Minute Drive To Dow

We are thrilled to offer our much loved home to families and friends interested in spending a memorable time in our world class city of Vancouver. The property is located in the Hastings-Sunrise district, located a short 7-minute drive to downtown Vancouver. For those in the know, this is the hottest district in the city's real estate market. Within 3 blocks of the house are a fantastic full service grocery store, a high-quality butcher, bakery, Starbucks, 2 better coffee houses than the Starbucks, Italian and Polish delis, 2 Chinese bakeries, the renowned Red Wagon Diner (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives), Campagnolo Roma Italian restaurant, Tacofino West Coast Mexican Cantina, the new Brighton pub serving local craft brew, Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, a liquor store open 365-days/year, DQ, Micky D's, 7-11 etc etc. The bus stop to downtown is less than 100-metres away. You will also be able to walk to the Commercial Drive within 15-minutes. Playland and the PNE are just 15-minutes by foot. The Trans-Canada Highway and access to the North Shore/Whistler/Okanagan Valley is less than 5-minutes away.

The house was completely renovated 4-years ago and now includes 3 full sized bedrooms on the top floor with a full bathroom with shower. The master bedroom is double-sized, with walk-in closet and an incredible king-sized orthopedic mattress with pillow top and memory foam. There is a professional grade elliptical exercise machine in the master bedroom. The remaining rooms are children's bedrooms with separate orthopedic double beds. The upstairs bathroom has a double vanity and a glass walled walk-in shower with detachable massaging wand.

On the main floor is a wonderful open-plan gourmet kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher and fridge, all stainless steel. Another full bathroom is on this floor with an over sized 6-foot deep bathtub with a rain shower and separate detachable wand. The dining room and living room are open plan and around the corner is the office with a high-end iMac 27-inch computer for guest use. For entertainment, we have a 42-in plasma TV with full cable access and a Sony PS3 gaming unit. The kitchen leads out by a mud room to the back terrace which has a Weber bar-b-q and a teak table and chairs for 6.

The garden level has another bedroom with an orthopedic queen-sized mattress. Another separate bathroom with walk-in shower also houses the front-loading high efficiency Washer/Dryer.

The back yard is another huge attribute of the house as there is plenty of room to have a soccer or bocce game with the kids or your friends. There are 2 cherry trees and a large swath of raspberry bushes on the property.

The best way to experience Vancouver hands down

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of Five that wanted to have a comfortable way to enjoy a 2 week holiday in Vancouver for the first time. We found this rental and having never tried VRBO before we took the plunge. All i can say is that the home was perfect for us. Easy access to public transit, if we wanted it. Off street parking. Walkability. Ease of access to all points of entry into and out of the city as well as downtown. The home was by far in excess of our expectations as the photos do not do it justice. There was more than enough room for our family as well as living space to do life, cook and even play video games in our down time. The Hasting-Sunrise area may have had a bad rep, but we can attest that it was more than safe and comfortable 24/7. We even did a few pub crawls from the home and late night strolls from the various venues was very safe and enjoyable. My children (12-10-7) even went for walks to the local pool, grocery store, cafe without even a second thought about getting lost or being unsafe. Had to make this point as the east part of town has a rep. To be honest, there is a few blocks on east Hastings nearer to downtown that is a bit rough, but that is not where the home is nor is it within reach. The home is clean and totally comfortable with all (AND I DO MEAN ALL) of the comforts of home, which is important when travelling on long holidays. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked for the amateur as well as professional chef.

So, what are some of the things I would be concerned with (sight unseen)?

SAFETY - Totally safe area really safe home for tweens, teens and tots.

COMFORT - More than enough space to make your stay incredible

ACCESS - Easy on/off to major highways and roads, GPS a must. Also easy public trans access. Many restaurants and a few bar rooms nearby within an easy walk/stumble.

VALUE - Needless to say, do the math its a no-brainer!

OWNER - Hands off but available. There to greet in the beginning, easy set of instructions and there to repossess keys at the end.

My only hesitation when writing this is that when we rebook, it may not be available, but that is a chance worth taking since we rely on guest reviews and feel compelled to return the favour to fellow travellers.

VRBO rocks!
