Lower Lonsdale House Rental Photos and Description

Bright, Centrally Located One Bedroom Suite

We've taken care to make our suite cosy and warm with heated floors and comfortable furniture. A queen-sized bed is in the spacious bedroom and the walk-in closet will allow you to unpack your suitcase and feel right at home. The bathroom has a shower (but sorry, no tub). The small kitchen has everything you need (and if it doesn't you have only to ask us): a two burner cooktop, a small fridge, microwave/convection oven, toaster, coffee maker and more. The shared laundry room has a big freezer with room for your needs as well as ours. WiFi and cable are included with a good array of channels to choose from but you'll be too busy exploring to do too much TV watching. A great array of restaurants, all within walking distance, will make decisions difficult. Grocery stores, shops, library, sushi, coffee shops (we specialize in those!!!) and ice cream/yogurt vendors are plentiful. Transportation isn't a problem if you don't have a car: a bus stop is a block away and a short walk down to Lonsdale Quay will find you at the Seabus terminal. Our Skytrain system will take you all over town and even straight to the airport at the end of your visit.

Our suite is a bright basement suite with windows that bring a lot of light in and there is a private entrance guarded by two cats - both friendly to a fault. If you're missing your own pet one of ours will be pleased to accept any amount of neck-rubbing.

About Andrea Smith

We are two sisters, born and raised in Vancouver. We've lived in North Vancouver most of our lives. Our half duplex was built in 2012 so it's virtually brand new and we love it. One sister is a retired teacher/librarian and the other, a professional accountant, is semi-retired. We downsized from our previous home in North Van where we lived for over 25 years partly to get away from our big garden. Our new garden and deck are just the right size and we love sharing them with friends and family.

Andrea Smith purchased this house in 2012

Why Andrea Smith chose North Vancouver

We chose this area of North Vancouver because we were looking for something within walking distance shops and restaurants. A park nearby provides a beautiful setting for morning walks and we love the south-facing back yard that provides a lot of natural light.

What makes this house unique

At first a bit apprehensive about changing neighbourhoods we quickly settled into Lolo (Lower Lonsdale) and its proximity to everything we need but the best thing about it is that it's simply...home.

A most enjoyable stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This self contained 1 bedroom basement apartment is located in a well maintained semi-detached home in North Vancouver. The surrounding property is nicely landscaped and sits in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It is within walking distance of markets, restaurants and Seabus transportation to Vancouver. The owners live in the main part of the house and were welcoming, friendly, helpful and respectful of our privacy and quiet enjoyment of their rental unit throughout our month long stay. Upon our arrival, we found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and well appointed with all requisite amenities including access to a washer/dryer. The apartment was ideally suited for us as seniors visiting our daughter and her family living nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to have the opportunity for a return visit in the not too distant future. Thank you to Andrea & Barbara.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a week in the apartment in November, we had an amazing stay. The apartment is spotlessly clean, the bed is very comfy the shower is great too. The kitchen has everything you could need.

The pictures shown don't do the apartment justice, it really is very lovely.

It's is also in a great area, walking distance to the sea bus and also a great supermarket called City market.

Andrea and Barbra were also very helpful and knowledgable about the area.

We didn't want to leave!

Wouldn't stay anywhere else if we return to Vancouver.

A true treasure found

  • 5 of 5

This rental was wonderful. It was light, comfortable and completely stocked. We enjoyed sitting out on the back patio and watching the birds and squirrels play. We enjoyed the company of Rufus and Coco (the kitties). The location was great, we were able to walk down to the water a felt very safe. Driving over to Vancouver was easy enough and heading up to Whistler was simple too. Great place!
