About Scott Ellerbeck

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 purchased this house in 2014

Why Scott Ellerbeck 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.

Perfect "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our 5 days here in Vancouver... Our "home" was in a great neighborhood, had everything we needed and was spotless! Owners were so helpful before we arrived, answering questions and giving suggestions. We were so happy to have everything we needed within walking distance and could use Metro bus service to get to and from our destinations. We would definitely come back here!

Quiet place, centrally located, poorly organized

  • 3 of 5

We had not been informed that the 2nd bed was an inflatable, and therefore uncomfortable and cold at night, especially with only a thin blanket.

We had also not been informed of the code for the front door. Apparently there is some glitch between the different rental services that rent out this suite, but that didn't help much late one evening waiting outside.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had issues. When three people book our place there is a cot or an aerobed available for the extra guest, as described in our listing details. Regarding the doors, we provided telephone support and came to the property within 15 minutes to help with access to the property, even though there ended up being no issue with the access codes.

Wonderful space, lovely amenities, great location

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy here - stayed 2 nights in late May. Lovely space, great amenities, could sit outdoors. on small porch off kitchen. Green, attractive, safe location. Great "walkability" for shops, services, restaurants and transit. Easy to get to by Skytrain & walking (we were travelling light). Scott's communications were clear and prompt, lots of good information. Neighbours in building were very quiet. We would happily stay here again.

Everything about this place is appealing--great location, clean/comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The only thing we didn't appreciate was the noise at night from the adjoining unit (small children)...but that is out of this owner's control

Spacious, clean, great location, quiet neighbourhood, unit well stocked

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience with this rental. The unit was clean, well equipped with all that would make for an at home stay. The location is superb, close to all amenities and bus routes. The instructions given re our stay were thorough and concise. The only inconvenience was the washroom situation as it was off the bedroom; we had 3 adults (a cot for the 3rd) in another room making for some inconvenience but not enough to overshadow the overall positive experience. Would we stay here again and/or recommend this unit to someone else...you bet!
