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 West Side
We bought this property as I love Kitsilano and my wife 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.

Great location, very walkable and cool neighborhood! Worked well for our small family. Rental is a triplex but very quiet and private. Plenty of space, comfy and clean. Host was very helpful and responsive. Parking was tricky but it worked. We would definitely come back!
Great spot in Kits
Very nice property rental Central to walk anywhere in central Vancouver. Bike rental a few steps away along with all the shops and restaurants you would need. Spacious layout though bathroom is located through bedroom so take that into account if more than one person staying. Kitchen is well provisioned with dishes, pans etc. Washer and dryer too with complementary wash fluid. Nice and light inside. Though a musty smell was noted on entry, it quickly dissipated by opening the windows (we were there in July so no problem doing this). Owner was responsive and answered questions. Had a little trouble parking but this was because of fireworks festival going on down the road at the beach so neighbourhood was crammed with cars.
We arrived to Vancouver very late. According to the direction from the owner - it was very easy to find the place. The property exceeded our expectation. The place is beautiful, very clean, comfortable for four adults. The location is super good! Very safe, and close to major attractions. If we visit Vancouver in the future, for sure we will stay in that place! Thank you for making our stay soooooo good!
Great location, but noise was a significant issue
This listing is in a lovely neighborhood with local shops, grocery stores, and coffee shops that were very walkable. In addition, there is a great walking path close by that was filled with little gardens and it made it easy to walk to neighboring areas. Scott, the owner, was easy to communicate with via email and the checkin process was smooth. We did have one major issue, however, and that was the noise. The suite is the main floor of an old house. There is a tenant upstairs as well as downstairs, so noise was a significant issue as the tenants downstairs threw loud, late night parties (loud music, group sing-alongs, shouting, doors slamming all until 1:00 to 2:00 am) two of the four nights we had stayed there. This was highly frustrating as we traveled abroad and had significant jet lag as well as an ill infant. The last thing we needed was a noise issue. Once we contacted Scott, he was quick to respond and spoke with the tenant(s). There were no noise issues after that, but we had already had two nights of interrupted sleep which was a rough way to start our vacation, to say the least.
We are sorry to hear this. We never have issues like this with our downstairs full time tenants usually they are very respectful. I did ensure I took care of it as soon as I heard. Let me know ASAP next time so we can take care of it the moment it happens.
Great location but ....
This is advertised as sleeping 4. Not really. Accommodates two very comfortably and could work well for two adults and 2 small children. But we were travelling with my adult daughter and she was not comfortable on the camp cot. Really uncomfortable.
Also you will hear the upstairs renters but that’s an old house problem and this is charming old house.
We are sorry that your daughter didn't like the cot. We also have a double aerobed that can be set up as well. Let us know next time and we can have that one set up. We usually recommend the cot as it takes up less room and gives more access to the livingroom.
Great appartment, bed comfortable, everything is clean. Near Granville Market : 10 minutes walk. Bus to downtown easy to take. Great stay !
This property is right in the heart of Vancouver's Kitsilano neighborhood. Kitsilano Beach, Granville Island and the many restaurants and shops of West 4th and Broadway are within easy walking distance. Downtown Vancouver is also minutes away by bike, car or public transit. There is convenient public transit to virtually all of Vancouver's sites, including Stanley Park, UBC and the Museum of Anthropology and Science World.
