About Scott Ellerbeck & Marilyn Bjelos

My name is Scott and I originally hail from Edmonton, Alberta while Marilyn is a local from the Vancouver area. We both love west coast living and all that this city has to offer.

Scott Ellerbeck & Marilyn Bjelos purchased this house in 2014

Why Scott Ellerbeck & Marilyn Bjelos chose Vancouver

We bought this property as I love Kitsilano and Marilyn loves downtown. This property is a perfect compromise as we can conveniently enjoy both neighborhoods from this location.

What makes this house unique

One of the best features of this house is the ability to walk down the railway tracks straight into Granville Island. From there, you can hop onto on an aquabus for a quick trip to downtown to continue your sightseeing adventures.

Vancouver family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This place was nice and convenient to Granville Island, Stanley Park, and a great waffle shop. The house was clean and had everything a couple would need. I don't know that we would stay here again based on the parking. Parking in the neighborhood was a nightmare at times. When it's raining and you have to park 4+ blocks away and then walk in the rain with a 14 month old it makes for a frustrating experience. My phone service did not work in Canada, so I had to go to Starbucks to look up how to get into the house and the email with all the information for parking and internet was sent almost 2 hours after check-in. Scott was very helpful once I was able to reach him. If parking was more accessible then I would give 5 stars.

Beautiful kits apartment

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely stay in this spacious, beautifully appointed apartment.

The bed was comfy, well equipped kitchen with back deck.

I loved all the windows int the unit.

There was easy coded access and we were able to leave our luggage on the porch early, which was a great help.

I would love to stay here on any return trip.

It's a great neighborhood.

Beautiful and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here while vacationing in Vancouver. The place was AMAZING!! It is in a convenient location with shopping near by and not a far drive to downtown. There was always plenty of parking nearby. The neighborhood is cozy and very friendly. The house itself is decorated beautifully. My kids enjoyed their stay away and are asking when they can go back. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Vancouver. We are already starting to plan our next stay.

Location, location, location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 4 nights on the mail floor suite and loved the place! Very comfortable, very homey feeling. The suite has everything you could every need. Lovely little deck out back to enjoy all day or evening. Comfortable bed and very clean suite. The location can not be beat. One of my favourite areas of Vancouver. 5-7 minute walk down the hill and you are at the beach. 3 minute bus ride or 20 minute walk and you are downtown. The only negative was the noise from the people upstairs early in the morning and late at night (night time noise didn't bother me). The sound of people was somewhat comforting as I was traveling alone. No problem if you are an early riser! I would highly recommend this lovely suite.

Clean & tidy

  • 4 of 5

Old house but comfortable and clean. Upstairs guests easily heard and could be a concern if they were partners. Great location, close to everything we needed.

Very attractive home, the first floor apartment is nicely decorated and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were friendly and helpful. They provided lots of information about the property, local attractions, restaurants, etc. The neighbourhood was very convenient with good quality stores and restaurants. The apartment was immaculate, the furnishings were comfortable and the decor was quite pleasing. The bed was very comfortable. There was lots of space, although the kitchen table area was a bit crowded and only fit two adults comfortably. There was a larger table on the back balcony so this would not be a problem in good weather.
