South Cambie Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 BR self contained apartment with private entrance on beautiful Douglas Park

Clean, comfortable 1 bedroom garden level suite with private entrance, patio, and garden. Close to everything Vancouver has to offer - shopping, restaurants, recreation and the Canada Line subway to downtown and the airport all a short walk away.

Four bus lines run very close, taking you directly to Downtown, UBC, Stanley Park, Granville Island, etc. If you arrive by car, there is free parking just outside the door.

BC's major health centres, Vancouver General Hospital, BC Cancer Agency, and BC Children's Hospital are all within 15 minutes walking distance.

This is a great location for families, with a nice park across the street with playground, fitness center, running track, and splash pool in summer. Free family oriented concerts every Thursday evening in the summer! Hillcrest Olympic Rec Center is also close by, with a large pool (indoor and outdoor), skating rink, library, etc.

Local shopping and restaurants are only 500m away, in Cambie Village. Other shopping districts are also within just a few km: Main Street, South Granville, Granville Island, and the large Oakridge Mall.

When you are not out in the city, enjoy the peaceful private patio with a view of the park and mountains!

The apartment is very quiet and private, with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a sofa in the sitting room that converts to a second queen-sized bed. A single mattress or a portable crib can be supplied on request. The bathroom has grab bars installed in the bath tub, making access easy and safe. Clean linens and towels are provided, and housekeeping services during the stay are available if desired. Guests also have free access to a shared laundry room.

The living room has been recently updated with a 42" flatscreen TV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just stayed at the place for one night and it was great. No issues at all. The apartment is nice and clean and had everything available. There is also a LCD TV in the living room (pictures showed an old one) and has a cable box too. No issues with the Internet. There is access to the laundry room, but we didn't use it except for the iron. The place is about 10min drive to downtown. Parking is free on the street beside the house. The entrance to the apartment opens up to the park and gives a really peaceful feeling. My mother in law loved it and sat outside for a while in the morning just relaxing to the view.

Excellent Location and a Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 fit very comfortably in this apartment. We never met the owner...let alone saw or heard them - they were very very quiet! The apartment was clean, organized and comfortable. We would stay there again. :)

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 young ones (2 and 5) for a couple nights while visiting family. The location cannot be beat....the park across the street was amazing and we were able to walk to the sky train station with the kids no problem. As we were only in Vancouver for a short visit, we didn't cook or 'live' in the suite. It had all we needed, close to Cambie where we were able to grab coffee and some treats.

Although there was a sofa bed, Jamie provided us with two mattresses for the children to use on the ground. Many thanks for letting us stay in your home!

Great location and a wonderful place to call home for our week visit!

  • 4 of 5

The suite was clean, the bed was great and the chairs on the private porch overlooking the park were perfect at the end of a long Vancouver touristy day! Walked to the sky train under beautiful trees in a quiet neighborhood. Would definitely recommend.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and welcoming. The 10 minute walk from Canada Line and VGH was a big plus, as was the little bakery just a few blocks away. I would definitely stay here again.
