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 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.

Very comfortable and well appointed apartment in convenient location on east side of Kitsilano

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It was a very convenient location with easy access downtown and we were also able to visit Stanley Park, Granville Island and Queen Elizabeth Park. You need to accept that you have the character of an older converted property and so don't have the sound insulation of modern accommodation but this was not a real issue for us. Scott's apartment is spacious and well appointed. We would have preferred cotton sheets and a down duvet rather than polyester but the bed is very comfortable.

Great location and good apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time staying here. The location was perfect for us - fast access to town and great restaurants close by. Apartment was clean and master bed very, very comfortable. Air bed for kids deflated first night but owner quickly rectified for the next day which was great. Sound transference between upstairs and downstairs apartments can be an issue.

Great space, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The space is located on a quiet block, which is a nice reprieve from the city. The Kitsilano neighborhood is much nicer than staying near downtown Vancouver. Lots of parks, good retail shopping, good mix of restaurants, near several bike/ped trails. And it's easily walkable or bike-able to anywhere in the city. I'd definitely stay here again.

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.
