West Side House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Dunbar home is fully equipped, including wireless internet, laundry and plenty of space to lounge about inside and outside.

Centrally located in a great neighborhood, 15 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes to downtown or Granville Island, 10 minutes to the local beaches, and 5 minutes from the largest park in the city (Pacific Spirit Park). Public transit is one block away and a convenient option to get around the City.

Upstairs, we have four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. The other three bedrooms share a bathroom. High ceilings and skylights in the common areas provide plenty of space and natural light. On the main floor, there is an open family room and fully equipped kitchen with new appliances. In addition, there is a dining room, living room, den and washroom. A desktop computer and wireless printer are provided for your use. Feel free to bring a laptop/ tablet/ smartphone if you wish to use the wireless connectivity. Free local telephone calls. On the lower floor is a theater room with large tv screen and surround sound to watch sports and movies etc. Full laundry facilities are also conveniently located.

Our South facing backyard enjoys sun throughout the day. The deck is partly shaded with a large Dogwood tree beside the house. Lounge on an easy chair and watch the kids play on the lawn. Enjoy the privacy created by mature plants and rose bushes surrounding our property.

There are a couple of wonderful parks a few blocks away. One block away there is also an elementary school, which has a playground, slides, swings etc.

Great shopping is about ten minutes walk from home. You can pick up your groceries at the neighbourhood market and enjoy window shopping on the way back home. There are also a number of cute little coffee houses, to sit back and read the morning paper with your favourite brew. A walk or short drive will get you to Kerrisdale and Oakridge Mall for additional shopping.

Some of Vancouver’s best restaurants (eg Provence, Vij’s, etc.) are mere minutes from home. To work up an appetite, jog through Pacific Spirit Park, wander along Kitsilano Beach, or play a round of golf at one of a number of courses close by.

Vandusen Botanical Gardens, UBC Museum of Anthropology and Science World are all great outings for those visiting Vancouver.

Families with children will find our home roomy and functional. Adults without kids will enjoy the peace and tranquility of our spacious home and wonderful neighbourhood.

Please read through our guestbook below. We have had many happy guests over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a wonderful week in your house. Your house was quite large and very well equipped for our family.

Also, we enjoyed the area that was close to various services. I recommend it to anyone who wants to visit with family in Vancouver.

Excellent family house

  • 5 of 5

The owner simply couldn't have done more to make our family's stay any better.

We had a slight issue with the house which resulted in him making a 40 minute drive to help us sort it and whilst visiting he offered us so much additional information on the area that really helped our stay.

House itself is excellent for families with a secure back garden and quality fittings and furnishings throughout.

Don't bother hiring a car during your stay as the house is on a well serviced bus route with good amenities available nearby.

Sadly the guitar in the picture and the children's playhouse weren't available but if that's all I've got to grumble about, I guess it says it all.

Well deserved 5 stars and an exceptionally helpful owner in the unlikely event that you need assistance.

Great house, neighbourhood and location

  • 5 of 5

The house is as described in a location that makes most of the sites easily accessible. Would stay here again - the house makes for a very comfortable stay. Just a note one of the pics showed a play structure in the back. This has been removed.

Great for Extended Families!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic home for all ages! We had grandparents, adult children and kids. The layout of the house gave everyone their space. The basketball court, the TV room, and the backyard were a hit with all. The owner provided information, attractions, a computer to use (which was helpful for bus routes for our daily adventures). The bus stop is right on the corner, zero hassle of renting or driving a car. Beautiful neighborhood setting and responsive owners throughout the whole process of renting, visiting, and deposit return. Excellent choice!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of August 2014, and would highly recommend it! House is nicely laid out and conveniently situated - it literally only takes you about 10-15 minutes to get anywhere you would want to go in DT Vancouver. It is also spotlessly clean, and is very well equipped for a comfortable stay.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your lovely home to us. We had a wonderful stay with our family of four. The house is exceptional – it provided all the comforts of home, and then some. The owners are friendly and helpful with instructions for operating things and suggestions in the area. We loved the quiet and relaxing Dunbar community – with its grand old trees and gorgeous homes. Your home was the perfect location to experience all that Vancouver has to offer. We would love to return.

Great week in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We needed a home big enough for our two families to stay (each family has two children ages 5-11). This house was perfect! Very spacious and comfortable. The backyard and back deck were perfect for us as we could watch the children while we bbq'd etc... The kitchen also looks out over backyard. The location within Vancouver was nice as well- walking distance to Dunbar for groceries or coffee or one of many playgrounds. We had a rental car and the location was good for all the things we wanted to do around Vancouver.

Highly recommend this clean, comfortable, spacious home for a family rental.
