Kitsilano District is clearly one of the most desirable urban-residential neighbourhoods in the world.It is cosmopolitan and near the warming influence of the waterfront, keeping the weather in a moderate range year-round. An area typified by its myriad arts and crafts design homes, lush gardens, green spaces, and its chic business areas. Most of the very finest restaurants and nightlife venues in all of Greater Vancouver, a city renowned for its great food, are within walking distance. Both wonderful boutique shopping and several beaches, again all within easy, safe walking distance, supplement this. For this reason, you will find properties outside the bounds of the district, advertising as being in Kitsilano. Our location between 4th Avenue and Broadway and Kitsilano Beach and Jericho Beach parks is the very heart of this wonderful part of the Vancouver's West Side.
Granville Island, a must on any visitor’s list, is built around a public market and a devotion to the arts. Theatres, artist studios, and fine dining venues abound. Or rent a boat or kayak and tour the beautiful waterways that define this city’s natural beauty.
Downtown and Stanley Park are just across the Burrard Street Bridge, which is an architectural highlight itself. The downtown core offers the cosmopolitan appeal of Robson Street, shopping at some of the most recognized names from Paris to Rodeo Drive and boundless nightlife and cultural venues. Enjoy the wonderful mix of architecture from the earliest days of Vancouver to today. All this is immediately adjacent the jewel of the crown, Stanley Park. Whether you choose to walk, roller blade, or cycle its seawall or visit the aquarium there is something for everyone through each season of the year here.

After a richly diverse career, mostly in public service, my beloved wife, Sally and I started this business. It was a great fit for us as we both loved being self employed, computers, our neighbourhood, walking and biking along the water, the great restaurants in this area and travel in which residential accommodations were always are preferred choice. So when we purchased this house we decided to offer something like a B&B but without the schedules and shared common spaces that we would have most preferred.
Since Sally was taken by cancer, in 2002, I have continued to operate the business and maintain our house in her memory.
