Kerrisdale is one of Vancouver's most exclusive family neighbourhoods and only minutes away from everything that a visitor would like to experience in this beautiful city by the sea and mountains. Our home is a short walk to unique shopping, restaurants, cafe's, markets, pharmacies, banks, and a wide variety of retail services. A 10 minute drive or a 20 minute bus ride takes you to the Downtown, Robson Street, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown and an extra 5 minutes to Stanley Park. We are less than a 10 minute drive to Vancouver's best beaches in Kitsilano, Locarno and Spanish Banks. We are right on the city's bicycle route and access to mountain bike trails on the UBC Endowment Lands where hiking and horseback riding trails abound. We're also only 15 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport, 35 minutes to the US/Canada border and 2.0 hours south to Seattle and 2.0 hours north to Whistler .

Great property for large family retreats, with 4 nicely sized bedrooms (2 ensuite) and 2 studies, and 2 more bathrooms (all with walk-in showers). Warmly and sensitively decorated. With the luxury of space enough for private retreats, and multiple spaces for hanging out all together, this made it almost a home away from home for our 2 week stay.
Mike and Cynthia and Sunny the spaniel welcomed us generously and with great spirit. Mike is a wise font of local knowledge, offering great suggestions of what to do, where to eat, and what time was best to hit them.
Mum has difficulty walking, but negotiated the house easily.
Location was excellent, 15 min drive into downtown Vancouver, and 15 min from VYR airport. A great high street just a block from the house with great food choices, when one was not inclined to cook in the well equipped kitchen.
Highly recommended, felt like just like a home away from home.
I had a wonderful experience staying in this house.
My group was consisted of 8 adults and 1 child and the rooms were enough, very clean and cozy for us to stay comfortably. There were basic amenities provided including washing machine, detergent, various tableware/cooking equipments, and seasonings. The location was in very quiet place and we enjoyed going out for a walk when we had time. It was easy to access to the restaurant and shops, 5-10minutes by walk.
I would like to appreciate the hosts for their kindness and warm services provided for us, again.
Our 50+ women's hockey team rented this amazing house for 6 nights while participating in the American Masters Games. It housed 11 of us (and our gear) comfortably with room to spare. It not only met but exceeded our expectations. Clean and well stocked with all the essentials. Beautiful yard with a lawn for bocce and a basketball court for some ball hockey, lots of on and off street parking, and a huge deck for post game barbecues. This house felt like home. It wins GOLD and so did we !!
We have just had a memorable family vacation in Vancouver, based at Michael and Cynthia's home in the Kerrisdale neighborhood of Vancouver. The home is large -- our family group consisted of ten adults and five children under age 18, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home is beautifully decorated and located in a lovely neighborhood. We especially loved the recently added wrap-around deck! The home is close (walking distance) to many diverse and excellent restaurants and is conveniently located for seeing Vancouver's many attractions. Our activities included the Catfe (Cat Cafe) in downtown Vancouver, a whale watching cruise from Victoria, BC, a visit to the neighborhood's beautiful botanical gardens (with its Victorian hedge maze), meals at several superb Vancouver restaurants, and a spectacular trip via gondola and chair lift to the peak of Grouse Mountain. Mike and Cynthia are gracious and helpful hosts. They sent extensive information about their home and area attractions well in advance of our visit. Mike was extremely helpful in a number of "above and beyond" ways, including letting us occupy the home several hours early and being very understanding about a misplaced house key (our fault!) which was located at the last minute. Michael and Cynthia's home has the strongest and most enthusiastic endorsement from our entire family!!
We had a dozen people for a family reunion, ages early twenties to the mid eighties. The location in Vancouver is superb, with lots of interests for everyone. Vancouver is an excellent tourist city.
The home is very comfortable, not especially glitzy or posh, but warm and comfy. We were there in late July when the weather is perfect, so we really enjoyed the spacious wrap-around deck. We spent most of our time there.
The owners are really nice. They gave us great suggestions for tourist spots, where to eat and how to navigate the city.
We would love to go back.
Stayed with a bunch of family for a week-- big group including children of different ages. The house could not have been more comfortable, the set up was fantastic for us all. Many bedrooms, tons of sleeping options. All the beds made and tons of towels left for us. The whole place felt SUPER clear. Michael, one of the owners, was there to greet us and show us around. They were super thoughtful, left us with coffee for our first morning. Told us about all the local stores and sent me a long email with lots of restaurant options for kids. The deck and backyard are huge and very spacious--couldn't have asked for a better space for us all. TVs with lots of great netflix movies around the house, comfy couches, and all super clean and warm. We hope to be back again one day!
