We installed a new kitchen and cozy gas fireplace in May 2013 and have fully updated the suite.

Here is what some of our guests have to say...: Great Find!
'We visited Vancouver for four days with our two sons, aged one and four, and wanted a comfortable place in a great neighbourhood. The Avalon Guest Suite was perfect. The apartment is comfortable and clean, and the location is great. It is located on a charming, tree-lined street with a short walk from the shops on Broadway.' ~DA
'Loved this bright, beautifully decorated suite. It's in a great safe neighbourhood, within walking distance to everything you would ever need...and more. We were there in October and the maple trees were turning their gorgeous colours.
The suite is very well equipped for preparing your own meals. Grocery stores are close by. You don't really need a car.
Thanks to the O'Dwyer family for a lovely stay. We will be back next year...' ~HappyTrails
Our neighbourhood....: Kitsilano, colloquially knows as “Kits” is one of Vancouver’s premiere Neighbourhoods and is located on the city’s west side. It is bordered to the North by two beaches, Kitsilano and Jericho beach and is home to two distinct commercial areas. The first located along Broadway between Larch and Blenheim streets, only steps from Avalon Guest Suite, while the other is along 4th Ave between Balsam and Burrard streets.
Kitsilano is a great neighbourhood to explore on foot, with its many wonderful shops and restaurants as well as parks and beaches.
We are an international family from Ireland and Germany and have been living with our 4 children in Vancouver since 1999.
We are excited about our chosen city and are looking forward to sharing information and tips with you on your stay!
Julia O'Dwyer purchased this apartment in 2004

We loved staying at the Coach House. You really feel at home since the moment you enter, it is so cozy and welcoming. We are a family of five and we were very comfortable with the spaces. Everything was so clean, and that is a very important thing for me. Julia really made us feel like we were special guests, there was a lot of details, like fresh flowers, basket of fruit, milk in the fridge and a delicious homemade bread. There were also toys for the children to play during bath time!
All in all, Avalon Coach House is the perfect place to stay for a family that is looking for other options instead of a hotel room. On our next trip to Vancouver will definitely go back! That´s for sure! Thank you so much Julia and O´Dwyer family.

You will be highly impressed and pleased to rent from Julia and Michael. They could not be more lovely!
The studio was bright, very comfortable and met all our needs. I was lucky to see another larger unit and cannot wait to come back to stay there w/ my family.
Location is the BEST! Free street parking, easy access to downtown Vancouver and walkability all over Kitsilano. Really the place to be in the Vancouver area. Quiet, great dining, shopping, and you can't miss a visit to the beach!
The only place we will stay when travelling to Vancouver.
Thank you, Julie and Michael.
My parents, husband, and I stayed at this lovely, new property for a week this summer, and it was superb! Warm welcome (and basket) from the hosts, great kitchen and amenities, lots of natural light, a small but very pleasant private outdoor space, and a wonderful location in Kitsilano. We couldn't have been happier with the house and neighborhood. The glowing reviews and excellent responsiveness from Julia from our first inquiry onward induced us to give this accommodation a try and we're very glad we did.
We stayed in the Avalon suite which is a very comfortable, spotless, and extremely well equipped. Julia was so wonderful to leave a tray of fruit and cinnamon buns to greet us upon our arrival. We definitely appreciated that after two long days of driving. The area is perfect for walking to Kitsilano and is a short drive to downtown, Granville Island, and Yaletown. It is also steps away from funky restaurants. There was always parking in front of the house and we enjoyed walking our dogs in the beautiful neighbourhood. Perfect for families or couples. Thank you Julia and Mike for a wonderful stay!
We spent the winter -- from early December to mid-March -- in the lovely Avalon Guest Suite. Julia and her family were wonderful hosts. The suite itself is exactly as shown online -- clean, comfortable and felt just like home. The neighborhood is spectacular with shops and restaurants literally steps away. I miss it already and hope to return. Thanks so much Julia and Mike!
We took our kids (7, 4 & 2) to Vancouver for Christmas and chose to stay at the Avalon Coach House from an online search. The coachhouse was exactly as pictured and described online - ONLY BETTER!
After a long flight from Australia we arrived in Vancouver to a warm, clean, comfortable and beautifully presented coach house. Fruit bowl, bakery goods and an awesome Canadian decorated Christmas Tree.
We can not speak highly enough of this property. Even the location is awesome.
Julia and her family really do think of everything. They also give you as much privacy or help as you need.
Highly recommend Avalon Guest Suite and Coach House to anyone looking for an amazing property to enjoy in the Vancouver area.
The coach house was very clean, well appointed but a tad small for 7 adults..only discovered the freezer on our last days...close to shops and restaurants on West Broadway...was close to our daughter's place by car on York & Balsam...used buses & cabs to get around.
Was lovely to find fruits & muffins on arrival. Owners were very nice...it allowed our family to be together to prepare for our daughter's wedding. The use of the studio appartment for 2 nights to allow her to get ready with family was wonderful./would recommend to family & friends visiting Vancouver ...lovely & quiet area.
Thank you Julia & Michael,

Kitsilano is Vancouver's premier neighbourhood, located just ourside the downtown core.
Characterised by its leafy tree-lined streets and miles of beautiful sandy beaches, it is the ideal location from which to explore Vancouver and its surroundings.
Our vacation home is located in the centre of Kitsilano, on a quiet street, yet within steps of cafes, restaurants and shops and direct bus links to downtown Vancouver and UBC (the University of British Columbia).
Walk through a vibrant neighbouthood, sip your coffee on an outdoor patio and enjoy sunset on the beach in Kitsilano!
