Overview

Kitsilano House Rental Photos and Description

1147 square foot 2 bed/2 ensuite bath suite close to beaches,UBC & downtown

Situated on one of the most beautiful tree lined cycle route streets in Kitsilano, this large and luxurious garden suite is the perfect location to experience everything that makes Kitsilano one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the world to live.

This central Kitsilano suite offers convenient access to nearby Downtown, Granville Island, False Creek, The University of British Columbia and of course, Kits Beach, Jericho Beach, Locarno Beach and Spanish Banks Beach.

With an unprecedented walk score of 95 out of 100 along with a fabulous bike score of 80 and transit score of 75 you will find that everything you could want to do in Vancouver is virtually at your doorstep.

The 1147 square foot (107 square meter) accommodation, which sleeps 6 people, is a newly constructed completely self-contained 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom garden suite with private patio located in a 2014 house built in the Craftsman style.

The huge kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare that perfect meal with all of the local ingredients you will have picked up at the Farmer’s Market, Granville Island and Broadway Fruit and Vegetable grocers. Quartz counter tops, glass top stove, dishwasher and double sinks all add up to provide a first class kitchen.

The kitchen is also equipped with a Keurig coffee machine and starter pack of assorted K cup coffees.

The suite features two bedrooms, the first with a queen size bed, built in closets and en suite bathroom. The en suite has quartz counter tops and a large and luxurious walk-in shower complete with overhead rain shower head. The second bedroom has a double bed with its own door to access the family bathroom which can therefore act as an en suite or family bathroom. The second bathroom/en suite has quartz counter tops and a comfortable bath tub. A brand new Queen Size pull-out sofa bed is situated in the living room. The clever design of this sofa bed means it’s very comfortable and suitable for adults or children.

Also included is in-suite laundry, cable HD television with a 42” Plasma TV, Blu-Ray player, Wi-Fi and a private phone with free long distance calling so you can keep in touch with friends and family back home.

A Premium TV package including HBO, Showcase, AMC, Movie Channels, Sportsnet World and Free On Demand movies and TV shows is also provided.

If you're traveling with children we've got that covered too. The suite is equipped with a selection of toys and board games, an adjustable booster or feeding seat suitable for children aged from 3 months to 4 years old and a playpen.

The playpen or playard is equipped with a bassinet, and a change table too. Every piece of fabric that baby touches can be machine washed.

The house is located across the street from Connaught Park and the Kitsilano Community Centre and Skating rink. Connaught Park is a large urban park with playing fields, a large playground and water park. Also across the street is the Kitsilano Farmer’s Market which runs every Sunday from May 11-October 19.

Kits Beach is just a beautiful 15 minute walk away and UBC is a quick 15 minutes bus journey or a scenic bike ride along dedicated cycle routes starting directly from your doorstep. Numerous bus options to downtown leave very frequently from stops less than a block away, and take just 15 min. Three ski resorts are within a 30-45 minute drive.

One block away you will find the start of the wonderful stretch of shops, restaurants and cafes that line Broadway or take a short 10 minute stroll down to the trendy and famous 4th Avenue shops. Walkscore.com has stated that there are 117 restaurants within a 15 minute walk of this suite.

About Eldon

My wife and I bought our first house together at this location two months before the birth of our first daughter in October of 2000 and other than a three year stint living in England we have been here ever since. Along the way we had a second daughter and in September of 2013 we embarked on a journey towards a life long goal of ours which was to build our dream home in the same location where we bought our first home. After 10 months we have completed that journey and are now living in our brand new home. The garden suite is a completely independent home within our home and we are looking forward to inviting people from all over the world to come and stay and experience the most incredible neighbourhood in the world with us.

Eldon purchased this house in 2000

fantastic, well-designed and appointed, convenient and QUIET apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter (17 yrs old), son (almost 20 yrs old), and I traveled to Vancouver to check out UBC. We have rented many homes through VRBO over the years, and frankly, not that many apartments since we like our quiet. But, we wanted to be in Kitsilano for visiting UBC, and this apartment proved to be perfect. High points in no particular order: easy door security; great lighting; brillliant design, extra insulation between the apartment and home above makes it very quiet; beds are a little firm; queen pullout sofa is not the old fashioned kind with the bar in the middle and in its pulled-out state offers a perfect way for three people to stretch/lounge while watching TV; super convenient location; great wifi; heat perfect and quiet!; water is hot quickly; good TV; the master bath is perfect...the shower is perfect--once you get the "right" temperature you don't have to fuss with it and can be adjusted for tall and short folks; and once again, it's quiet--seriously, it is amazing how quiet it is since the owner lives above and we hardly heard their footfalls; plus the main road one block away is barely audible outside the apartment and not at all inside the apartment.

We did not rent a car but used the light rail from the airport and then used the bus system. We went into downtown Vancouver and saw a youth symphony performance at The Orpheum. We saw UBC--their horticulture and botanical gardens are really special. We visited Stanley Park one day and had lunch in a small little cafe with fireplace, with great mulled wine. [If you're there in winter, check it out!]
We would definitely stay here again, especially if my husband and I were traveling up to see our daughter. We're into good food and found a Lebanese restaurant one night down on Broadway (the main drag) named Nuba. It was amazing. Also good was Banana Leaf Malaysian. Also, Cobs Bread. Thomas Haas has good coffee and croissants. I didn't try their chocolate as it seems wildly expensive and not in my value range...also, I love Fran's chocolates in Seattle.

If you travel the way we did, wear your most comfortable shoes or boots! This isn't a good fit apartment for mobility impaired folks.

We came to visit my family in Vancouver and this was the perfect place. The location was great. It was close to shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. Parking was never an issue. We always found a spot in front of the house, no matter what time of day. The suite was exactly as it was described and pictured. It was clean, bright, comfortable, and spacious. There was more than enough room for the four of us. So much better than a hotel room! Eldon and Catherine were very accommodating and responsive. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

The perfect choice for our stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and i, along with my parents, were visiting Vancouver for my cousin's wedding.
The property was ideal for us.
It was large enough, for the four of us, with all the comforts one would expect at home.
The location was ideal for us as it was near to family and a great location for getting around Vancouver by car. Plus it was a minute away from a well appointed high street, with various markets, coffee shops, etc. all walking distance away.
Eldon and Catherine were very kind and gracious hosts. And we felt that they were available to help should we need anything.
Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay.

Wonderful guest suite in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing visit my family of 6 had in Vancouver! The accommodations were so well appointed and comfortable for my family. Catherine and Eldon could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Their suggestions for our excursions were spot on. We loved walking to the various restaurants and the fireworks display over the bay. We hope to return to Vancouver someday, and we will definitely be calling you when we do. Thank you for everything!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was my first VRBO experience, and I can't say enough good things about the suite. The unit was perfect for myself and my father who met in Vancouver to visit family. Eldon was amazing to deal with, and even contacted me to see if me could turn on the porch light for me since I had a late flight the day I arrived! I would highly recommend this property for families and friends alike. We found it more comfortable than a hotel, and quite honestly, can hardly wait to book it again!

Over and beyond

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (5 of us) spent 10 wonderful days in Vancouver based out of this lavishly appointed suite. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owners as one would greet an old friend. We were made to feel so welcome during our stay here and nothing was too much trouble. The suite itself was extremely comfortable and contained everything that we needed. Location wise, it was perfect for us being a short hop from most places and surrounded by lovely cafes, restaurants & various other eating places (Menchies Kits being a family favourite).

All that remains is for me to say a very warm thank you to Eldon and we hope to stay here again the next time we visit beautiful Vancouver.
