Our character home is in the quiet residential heart of Kitsilano. The basement suite is garden-level, well lit, and was newly renovated. It's a cosy and peaceful space equipped with a full functional kitchen, living room and large bedroom. Coffee, tea, milk, bread, butter and jam will be ready for you. We are just 2 blocks away from public tennis courts, and a 5 minute walk to the beach, Kits pool and shopping. The nearby bus stops can take you directly downtown or UBC in less than 20 minutes.
Our well loved character home is over 80 years old, and located on a quiet street in Kits. In our friendly and community-minded neighbourhood, there is close access to local shopping on West Broadway or West 4th, parks, beaches, and bike trails. There are many bus options just a few blocks away to get downtown, UBC or across the city.
The space is garden-level, with over 7-feet high ceilings in most of the suite and some light throughout (If you are very tall, this is not be the best for you). The door opens into a basic kitchen (no dishwasher) and a farm house breakfast counter. In the living room, a comfy couch and chair are perfect for reading, relaxing or visiting. There is a TV with the most commonly used stations (and SportsNet as well for you hockey fans). A small table can be used for dining or working. In the large bedroom, a queen size futon topped with a memory foam overlay and freshly laundered duvet will ensure you sleep comfortably. We can make arrangements for a second bed to be available upon request.
When you arrive, there will be Avalon milk, coffee, tea, bread, jam and butter available for your first breakfast. We live upstairs and are available to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Although the regular check-in time is 4 pm and check-out time is 10 am, if the house is empty before your arrival and/or no one is coming directly after you, we are happy to let you arrive early and/or depart late.

Our family home now has less children than it once did, but it remains a cherished space where our now grown children come and go. The neighbourhood is vibrant and friendly, and we value our community of friends, neighbours and local businesses.
You may see us in the garden, and we are often out and about. We are busy professionals who work in Vancouver.

Rob and I are long time Kitsilano residents who love Vancouver, our outdoor adventures, and our community. We are busy professionals - so we are not always around, but love coming back to our home.
