Kitsilano House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom penthouse with stainless kitchen, ocean & mountain views, fireplace

Welcome to The Kitsilano Penthouse at Alma Beach Manor. This stunning 2 bedroom penthouse is located on the top floor of a beautifully restored, 1912 Vancouver Craftsman-style, Heritage Manor Home situated on a tranquil, tree lined street in the heart of Vancouvers premier neighbourhood - Kitsilano and Point Grey.

Light and airy, our penthouse is an open concept 2 bedroom suite that is warm, inviting and makes you feel right at home. The south facing french doors provide lots of natural light and leads to a large patio where you can relax with a drink and take in some sunshine. The newly renovated and fully equipped kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, a gas range and granite countertops. You can relax on the large sectional sofa, turn on the gas fireplace and relax with your favourite book or watch a movie on our new LCD tv.

The master bedroom is private and separate from the second bedroom and offers a stunning view of the ocean, north shore mountains and the beautiful tree lined street below. Both bedrooms have a queen bed with brand new pillow top hotel quality mattress, 400 thread count sheets and Pottery Barn covers and duvets. The bathroom has a bathtub, shower, elegant fixtures and a granite counter top.

Arguably the best location in the city, Alma Beach Manor is only 2 blocks to the beach and 8 minutes to downtown and UBC. The bus stop is half block and you have instant access to bike there is no need for a car! Fine dining and boutique shops are only steps away on 4th Avenue and we are just a few blocks from the world famous Kitsilano Beach and Kitsilano Pool, a 50 meter outdoor pool that overlooks English Bay, Kits Beach, downtown Vancouver and the stunning north shore mountains.

NEW. Each suite has NESPRESSO machines to make perfect cappuccinos every time. We provide you with a complimentary STARTER Basket with fresh bread, coffee, tea, juice, milk, butter and biscuit to start your stay off right.

We offer free WIFI, full digital cable TV, CD player, free on-site parking, laundry facilities and telephone. Full housekeeping is provided once per week.

For your pleasure, there is a free book exchange in the hallway, just in case you run out of books to read!

For families that stay with us (or adults who are kids at heart) Tatlow Park, a beautiful park with tennis courts and children's play ground, is only steps away and it leads right down to the ocean's edge.

Visit our website, for more photos and videos of the properties, special offers and reservations. Ask about our special monthly corporate rates for long term stays.

Whether here on business, vacation, relocation to Vancouver or visiting UBC students and friends, you will be very comfortable in your home away from home at the Alma Beach Manor.

About Manfred Schultz or Carol McDermott

Carol has been in the travel business for many years as a flight attendant, hence the love for travel and meeting new people. We love outdoor activity such as skiing, biking on our tandem, swimming, windsurfing and sailing. Walking in our tree lined neighbourhood and the sandy beaches is one of our favourite passtimes. Eating out at the many ethnic restaurants is also an easy thing to do just steps away.

When we are not here to enjoy Vancouver's breathtaking sights and sounds, we are on the island of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand in our brand new beachfront resort called The Lotus Terraces. Come and visit us there for a spectacular beachfront holiday.

Manfred Schultz or Carol McDermott purchased this house in 2005

Why Manfred Schultz or Carol McDermott chose Kitsilano

We have lived in the beautiful area of Kitsilano and Point Grey in the heart of Vancouver for over 25 years. We love the old heritage style architecture of the homes, some of which we have restored, added modern conveniences and brought back some of the old charm. Our properties are all north of 4th Avenue so they are close to the beautifull beaches of Vancouver and yet we are only 5 to 10 minutes from downtown. The Manor is also on one of Vancouver's designated bicylce streets.

What makes this house unique

Having travelled extensively, we recognize that having conveniences like high speed internet, cable TV, laundry, free parking and full kitchens are great benefits to feeling 'at home'. We offer all of these on an inclusive basis. There are no hidden costs. We make it convenient for travellers to check in and out with keyless entry locks. The property is located in a lovely treed residential neighbourhood, just steps to many unique, ethnic restaurants, shops and services. The bus stop is just outside so you can travel anywhere by bus; hiring a car is not really necessary.

Diagonally opposite the Manor, is the wonderful Tatlow Park, which has a playground and tennis courts and takes you right to the ocean.

If you do not want to stay in a condo or high rise building, we offer a lovely, safe alternative for couples or families alike.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Our stay in Vancouver was made all the more delightful by the lovely accommodations at Alma Heritage Manor. The Penthouse was perfect for our family. It was everything that you promised and more!

We are also greatly in your husband is now in Greece and will be going on to Azerbaijan for business thanks to your efficient handling of his passport crisis. By the time he realized that his passport had been left in the room, it was too late to return for it.

Thank you so much for the hospitality and quick solution to our problem.

Alma Beach Manor is fantastic. The house we rent was beautiful and well appointed. We had everything we needed. The service was great and management was very accomodating and friendly. They are a pleasure to deal with. Moving forward, I will only rent from Alma Beach Manor.

Exceptionally Good!

  • 5 of 5

Alma Beach Manor is exceptional. I spent one month in Vancouver on a busy schedule and found that I had everything I needed here. Firstly, the location is great. Situated in a pleasant part of town, Alma Beach Manor is within a short walking distance from the beach and the main shops of Kitsilano, but is also just an 8-10 min. bus ride away from downtown Vancouver. The apartment I stayed in (Jericho 4) was spacious, modern, stylish and exceptionally well looked after with a homely touch to it. The facilities were excellent and kept in perfect working condition, with absolutely everything you could reasonable expect to need provided. To top it off, the warmth and sincerity of the host's Manfred and Carol made me feel very welcome and I would not hesitate to stay here again the next time I visit.

Charming! Home away from home :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in the penthouse suite - my husband and I, and our 1 year old son. It was the perfect size for all of us, and offered us all the comforts of home. Most appreciated was the small welcome basket of fresh milk, bread, and other treats! The location was very family friendly, although a little loud at nights, the proximity to West 4th was great! There was also a green belt, with park, that led directly down to the water and cycling paths. The Kitsilano pool was just a short walk away too!

The entire rental process was easy, smooth, and arriving and departing were seamless. My family and I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 families stayed in 3 suites of the Alma Beach Manor and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts and amenities of this beautiful home We were instantly welcomed with immaculate suites and a welcome basket of fresh bread, coffee, and milk-much appreciated. The excellent location and stunning vistas make this an ideal place to stay while visiting Vancouver. The only suggestion we have is it would have been nice if the wi-fi was working on the top floor. Owners were most helpful and responsive to questions during booking. Hope to return soon!
