Kitsilano House Rental Photos and Description

5 STAR 1100-1800 Sqft Executive Home 3 Blocks To The Beach just mins to Downtow

Situated in the most central and beautiful area in Vancouver, Kitsilano is a 5 minute drive to UBC, Granville Island, and Downtown Vancouver. Only three blocks from the beach, on a quiet, historic, tree lined street, is this fabulous accommodation. It is a fully equipped 1100sq foot, 2 bedroom or 1800sq foot 3 bedroom (add the 1 bedroom suite downstairs) home that will make you feel well... much like you are at home! :)

From the moment you walk into this gorgeous rebuilt heritage house, you will feel the weight of the world lighten. As you enter through the covered front porch, a large open concept room with vaulted ceilings and eucalyptus hardwood floors warmly invite you in. A gourmet stainless steel kitchen, with granite counters and gas stove are available for the chef in all of us.

In addition to the open and welcoming kitchen, the living area has a gas fireplace, with a queen sized temper-pedic (very comfortable) pull out mattress for extra guests or for a romantic evening by the light of the fire. Sit outside as you quietly sip your morning coffee, or as you enjoy your dinner, taking in the breathtaking West Coast sunset on the upstairs balcony, off the master bedroom. Then, soothe your mind and pamper your body as you relax in a nice hot bubble bath in the generously sized jacuzzi tub.

For those of you that are here on business, we have provided a desk, and a phone/fax/scanner with free Wifi, ensuring that you will be able to continue your work uninterrupted.

You can have a wide variety of different ethnic foods, get pampered at the spa, get a massage, purchase groceries, shop for clothing, furniture, and so much more! Walk to Vancouver’s prestigious “Jericho Tennis Club” or to the “Royal Vancouver Yacht Club”, everything is at your finger tips!

The Executive House on 3rd is complete with lush linens, and quality mattresses ensuring that you will have a wonderful night’s sleep. You will wake up refreshed and ready to get out and explore one of the very best cities in the world.

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

Our large family had a wonderful 5 night stay in this beautiful home. The home is cosy and comfortable with lots of space (when using the additional downstairs area) for a family of 6. It is in what we believe to be the perfect location for an extended stay - while our teenagers were adjusting to jet lag, my husband and I grabbed a coffee from the lovely cafes a short stroll away each morning before running along the beach front (yes in the middle of winter!). We were blessed with magnificent weather for the time of year and the views across the water to the City, or snowcapped mountains in all directions was incomparable. Lots of fantastic cafes and restaurants nearby, close to a great IGA (with awesome and friendly staff) and the bus service into downtown was great. Jenni was away over the Holiday period so we did not meet her. Our only complaint was the cleanliness of the house on our arrival - numerous pots and pans and crockery were dirty and required scrubbing before we could prepare our first evening meal. Also both sofa beds (when we made them for sleep the first night for 2 of our teens) were both dirty - food wrappers, leaves, and dirt were in both sofas when we opened them out and it took us some time to locate which of the spare linen would fit each bed. The rug in the living room needed a good vacuum also. This was our only disappointment - especially as we were required to leave a $300 cleaning fee in cash at the end of our stay. Despite this issue we loved our vacation here and would recommend it to others.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property on two occasions for extended periods of time. The property is iin a great location. Three blocks back from the beach, close to all amenities. The photos and description accurately depict the property. We have stayed both winter and spring and the garden and street scape is so beautiful. The kitchen is fully equiped but also great cafes and restaurants in walking distance. it is the perfect place to stay to explore VANCOUVER. Jenni and Shaun are excellent hosts. No hesitation recommending this property. Nothing to consider when trying to compare to staying in a hotel. So spacious, lots of natural light in the bedrooms. Perfect holiday or short stay accomodation.

Best Location in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented this beautiful home three times and plan to make it our home away from home each time we visit Vancouver. Jenni and Sean are hospitable, friendly and professional.

The beds are comfy and the location can't be beat.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

While attending a family wedding in Kitsilano, we rented this perfectly charming character home. We rented both the upper and lower suites. My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom with our baby, and three year old. The owners were wonderful, as they not only had new mattresses made for the pack n' play (there are two in the house), but they lent us their inflatable camping mattress, so that our three year old could have her own bed on the floor. The bedroom was sunny, the ensuite bathroom was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. My parents stayed in the second upstairs bedroom, and my sister, her husband, one and three year olds stayed in the downstairs suite very comfortably with use of the bedroom and pull out couch. We were thrilled with the amenities that this house had, and how family friendly it is - including: baby gates, Pack'n Plays, kid's dishes, toys, movies, gated yard, close to park, laundry etc. It is situated in an incredible location.

The owners of this property live in the other suite, but were absolutely respectful of our privacy and were so incredibly nice.

We would recommend this property to anyone, and will most definitely consider it again if we are in the area.
