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.

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.
We were very pleased with this property. It was centrally located and made getting to Vancouver and Richmond very easy. We rented a car and the off-street parking made things very easy. We enjoyed the amenities in the home and felt very comfortable. Everything went smoothly so didn't need to have much contact with the owners. But it was nice that they checked in anyway. We will definitely consider staying here again!
Very comfortable house for our family of five. Room for hanging out together and for a little privacy as well. Great location for day trips in and around Vancouver. Owners very nice and accommodating. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.
Plenty of space - both inside and out. Facilities were great. Kids, parents, grandparents and friends all happily accommodated. The neighbourhood is beautiful and convenient access to downtown, beaches, parks, airport, ferry etc.Thank you for having us!
My family stayed in Neil's house for 2 weeks, there were 7 of us altogether, all adults. There was plenty of space for all of us and we never felt cramped, the house is huge! We never actually met Neil, but he kept in touch via email to make sure we were getting on okay. He left a folder for us with lots of useful information and recommendations which was greatly appreciated. The house was very clean and tidy and looked exactly like the photos shown. The large basement TV room was great, and there are also two other sitting areas and a dining room. The beds were all very comfortable. We were a bit worried that the house would be too far away from the downtown area, but the number 2 bus from the end of the street takes you directly downtown, and to Canada place, Gastown etc. Most of the places we wanted to go were on the number 2 bus route so that was very handy! We bought compass cards to use on the bus, I would recommend doing that as it means you don't always have to have change ready for the bus. We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go easily by bus. This is definitely a good place to stay if you are not planning on driving, the public transport is very regular and reliable. Dunbar street is about a 5/10 minute walk from the front door, it has some shops (there is a great range of grocery items at Shoppers Drug Mart!), restaurants & cafes. It was nice to have these things within walking distance, for evenings when we didn't feel like getting the bus somewhere. There is a gas barbecue provided and we made use of this on several evenings, it was very easy to use and a good alternative to going out to eat. We had some friends over for a barbecue on Canada Day and there was plenty of outdoor furniture for us to make use of.
We can't thank Neil enough for everything, we had such a good time staying here and it was a great base for exploring Vancouver. We would love to come back some day!
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.
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.
