About Liz or Doug Cochran

Liz and Doug are semi-retired with three adult children who lived their entire life in this home while attending local schools The neighbourhood consists of mostly character houses with long term residents and there is a school about a half block away. This was a wonderful neighbourhood to raise a family in and we enjoyed it so much we never considered moving. Shopping/restaurants/transportation are only two blocks away.

Liz or Doug Cochran purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Liz or Doug Cochran chose Vancouver

Our home is located in a delightful residential neighbourhood very close to downtown and to cultural/sporting/recreational amenities. The community is safe, friendly and warm and the beauty of our ocean and mountains makes this a perfect spot.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the architecture of the neighbourhood, the ability to easily walk down to the ocean and the familiarity of long term neighbours and friendly, accessible shopping.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family up for the weekend. The owner greeted us with some banana bread and walked us through the apartment. They were going to be gone for the weekend, so they had their son stay in the main house just in case we had any issues (spoiler: We didn't!). This place is great! We loved the location and ended up never really leaving a 5 mile radius from the house. They provided a HUGE list of things to do in the area and we were able to walk most places. We'll definitely be back to this rental in the future!

5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five rented Liz and Doug's apartment for the month of June and had a wonderful time. The home is ideally located between 4th and Broadway (9th) so loads of restaurants, markets, etc within a couple minutes walk. We used the bikes—thank you!—to get just about everywhere, and there are bus stops a plenty close by. The apartment is cozy and has everything you need; and to top it off, Liz and Doug are really great people. We would rent here again in an instant.

Vancouver Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Liz and Doug were great with help on seeing the area prior to our stay. We actually used their bikes to get to the city, beaches and shopping. Better than finding and paying for parking in the city. Loved the banana bread and apples left as welcoming treats. Apartment was cozy and very clean and as pictured.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment and location, it truly felt like home. We were walking distance from beaches, parks, stores and restaurants. Kitsilano is a great area, we felt safe and comfortable. The bus system was easy to use and affordable. We downloaded the transit app to help with times. Liz and Doug were more than generous with their kindness and suggestions of things to do in Vancouver. Thanks for making traveling so easy with a toddler.

Peace, comfort and ideal location to visit Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for a family with 2 children, very well equipped and decorated tastefully, and offering more comfort than necessity for the holidays. The description and the photos are completely in accordance but can´t reveal enough the quality of the welcome and the kindness of the owners.
