About John and Vicki Dalziel
We love our home and are happy to share it with guests from all over the world. Our practice is to always speak with guests first so we can answer questions and ensure we meet expectations. As travellers ourselves, we've set up our home as we would like to have a destination home stay.
John and Vicki Dalziel purchased this Townhome in 2001
Why John and Vicki Dalziel chose West Side
We fell in love with this neighborhood over 20 years ago and finally bought our duplex dream home in 2001. Our friends call our street one of the prettiest as it is lined with flowering trees and amazing gardens. Our favorite feature is our private garden courtyard. It's a magical spot.
What makes this Townhome unique
It's a great location to allow you to experience all that Vancouver has to offer. Ideal for 4 travelers, it's tucked in a beautiful neighbourhood minutes from downtown. You can easily walk almost anywhere or even hop on the bus which stops around the corner. The Arbutus Greenway provides miles of pathways for walking/cycling. It's right at the end of the block with MOBI cycle stations ready if you want to rent a bicycle. You're approximately 20 minutes walk/ 10 minute bike ride to Kits Beach and Granville Island Market. You'll also find galleries and great shopping just a few blocks away on South Granville. Plus we have public tennis courts nearby. Picking and choosing what to do during your stay may be your hardest decision of all. Fitting right into the urban vibe of Vancouver, our home has wood floors, modern decor, and a well equipped kitchen complete with everything you'll need to whip up tasty meals during your stay. Along with all the major appliances, the kitchen includes a microwave, toaster, wine glasses, coffeemaker, dishwasher, and plenty of cookware. There's a BBQ with patio dining in the courtyard. (a lovely organic butcher is just around the corner plus a Loblaw's Urban Market is just two blocks away) There are plenty of restaurants nearby if you prefer not to cook.

Great house in kitsiliano
We have spent a great stay there, the house is well situated (about 25 minutes drive from airport and downtown), 40 minutes walk to granville island (no need to pay parking), and 15 mn from good restaurants in 4th avenue and a supermarked just around the corner. The house is nice with a patio and you will find everything you might need for cooking and spending a confortable stay.
To make it perfect i would recommend to change the curtains in the bedrooms because we were wake up around 5am with the light coming from outside. We will be back for sure!!! And the last and not the least John is very nice and welcoming.

Thanks for your lovely review Chrystelle and Christophe and for taking such good care of our home. Appreciate your comments about the curtains and we'll look into ensuring there is a blackout option. All the best and please look us up if you're ever back this way.
Perfect Kitsilano retreat!
Such a warm welcome from John to this lovely home. The location could not be better, gorgeous tree lined avenues close to downtown, restaurants, supermarket etc. The house had everything we hoped for and would definitely return to this little gem.
We enjoyed staying in this lovely well-located home. John and Vicki are great hosts. Looking forward to returning soon.
It was great to meet you both and your sons. Thank you for the care and attention you showed our home. We hope you had a safe trip home and please look us up again when you’re back this way.
Kind regards, John and Vicki
Had a wonderful month at John and Vicky’s. The condo is modern and clean and very comfortable. The neighbourhood is safe and beautiful. Also there are many restaurants and walking distance to many key areas.
It was great to meet you, George and your daughter. Thank you for taking such lovely care of our home. We're glad to hear George is well. There's nothing like sunny days in Vancouver to heal all that ails you. If you're ever back our way, please look us up.
Vicki and John
The perfect base for a Vancouver adventure.
Travelling from the UK to spend Christmas with our son who is studying at UBC, we wanted to stay somewhere where we could all be together to celebrate. What a perfect property this is. Tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need. John and Vicki have made this house beatiful and we considered it the far superior option to staying in a hotel. Kitsilano is a great neighbourhood easily connected by buses to downtown. There is a local supermarket and also a liquor store close by. Nothing was too much trouble for John and Vicki who decorated the house for Christmas and left welcome provisions for us. We had a wonderful stay and a perfect family Christmas. We would highly recommend this property.
Thank you for your kind words and for being such wonderful guests. Your thoughtful note and gift were lovely. If you're ever back this way we hope you'll look us up. All the best to you and your family.

Well equipped , great location, very comfortable, appreciated the staples and extras,
John and Vicki were really generous and left sparkling water and wine as well as other staples which is really helpful. Very close to a good supermarket and 16 bus link into town. We walk everywhere so walking to the beach was easy. Lots of yoga nearby. Would recommend Raisu and Fable Kitchen for restaurants.
We’re so glad our home worked out well for your stay. Thanks for being such great guests and taking such care of our home. Hope we see you again if you’re ever out this way again. All the best to you both.
Vancouver's Granville Island Market is about a 20 - 25 minute walk away. Kits Beach is also close at hand. Tennis courts, shopping and galleries are just a few blocks away plus University Golf Course is a short drive or bus ride away. Two blocks away is a convenient new Loblaws Urban Market. Just opened this year is the Arbutus Greenway which is a beautiful walking or cycling path right at the end of the street.
