About Elaine Keating

Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, we came to Vancouver and a few years later made Kitsilano our home since 1976. We've raised 3 girls in this house, all who have graduated from UBC.

Elaine Keating purchased this house in 1975

Why Elaine Keating chose Vancouver

We bought this property because of its location. Kitsilano is the perfect area to have raised our children. Our girls attended the elementary school across the street and later went to the high school about 10 minutes walking distance. The beaches are about a 20 minute walk and UBC is a 20 minute bus ride - our family seldom needed a car to get around.

What makes this house unique

This neighbourhood is unique in Vancouver in that several of our neighbours are a major part of each other's families. We've been extremely fortunate to have developed such close ties over the years. It is the reason none of us have any desire to leave the area.

GREAT

  • 5 of 5

very attractive property, generously outfitted with cooking gear, shampoo, conditioner and soap. Home made sweet bread to start you off. Nice quite neighborhood, plenty of restaurants, groceries and other shops in walking distance. Plenty of public transport. We parked on arrival and car did not move until stay over. Will stay there again.

The Absolute Best

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our short stay and would return in a heartbeat. The owners have thoughtfully furnished the rental with everything to make a visit easy and comfortable. Their taste is eclectic and wonderful. The location in Kitsilano is close to shops, beach, restaurants and Jericho Park.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a long weekend and this was the perfect place to crash for a few nights. The apartment is clean and has everything you need, and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Granted, we did not spend a lot of time in the place, as Kitsilano is a great neighborhood to walk around in. But we had a great time in Vancouver and this was a great place to stay.

PERFECT Location to Explore Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have found a better little suite rental for three people! The accommodations were clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a 4-day, 4-night stay. I fell in love with the neighborhood and how easy it was to access Granville Island, downtown, UBC, and the beach. The little pastries and cookies left for us by the owner was a wonderful welcoming touch! The owner is very easy to get in touch with and is very responsive- even providing beach towels for our stay. The bed and sofa bed are both very comfortable. Safeway (grocery store) is a 5-minute walk away, as are multiple bus lines, shops, and restaurants. The neighborhood itself is quiet and charming. I will probably try to book this place again the next time I visit Vancouver!

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect stay, perfect place, perfect location. I stayed with my seven year old daughter. Elaine is a super fast and effective communicator. It was easy to arrive and find everything that we needed. The location in Kitsilano is perfect--a block and a half from every kind of restaurant and walking distance to the beach. The actual garden apartment is simply lovely--they left a little breakfast plate for us and it has a full kitchen. We highly recommend it!
