Overview

About the property

0 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Large, luxury modern craftsman studio basement suite featuring 9' ceilings, extensive crown mouldings and wainscotting, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with high end appliances, in suite laundry, and radiant in floor heating throughout. Centrally located in a quiet Kitsilano neighbourhood with tree lined streets but still only minutes away from the shops, parks & beaches (e.g. 10-12 minute walk to Jericho beach). The bedroom area has a queen sized bed and a top-of-the-line memory foam mattress, high quality duvet, pillows & linens and a large, double closet for your clothes. The living room has a high end sofa bed complete with a 40 inch Sony HD TV and huge cable package, including free movies. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, (including dishwasher), Henkel knives set, Jamie Oliver pots & pans, Kitchenaid blender, Kuerig coffee machine, and all the plates, utensils and essentials. There is ample storage for your luggage and free street parking. We also have a two bedroom laneway house available on the same property (see VRBO listing 1088183).

Some may find the set of stairs leading to the suite (as seen in the pictures) to be steep. We are looking at redesigning the stairs so that they are not as steep (this will be a "fall time" project).

About Connie

We are two working professionals raised locally but have travelled extensively throughout multiple continents and lived abroad in the UK and France for several years. We are now settled in Vancouver and wanting to share our beautiful home with you. David likes the outdoors and taking care of the plants. Connie likes all things sparkly and nice. Together we like calm and quiet. We have two little girls who like to sleep early!

Connie purchased this studio in 2014

Why Connie chose West Side

When we started looking for a house in the Kitsilano area, our favourite street was Waterloo. It had such a nice neighborhood feeling to it. When this house came on the market - Connie said it reminded her of a gingerbread house, and we knew it had to be our home.

What makes this studio unique

This suite is the lower level of a home that is situated on a nice quiet neighborhood street, just 10 minutes walk to the beach. It has flawless quality and design throughout. The suite is uniquely light, airy and open while being cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is quiet offering perfect solitude while still being close to the action of Kitsilano.

Very comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed two nights. I chose Kit’s Sanctuary because of the location. It is relatively close to The University of British Columbia where my daughter is interested in studying. We did not need a car to get to UBC or downtown Vancouver. The number 14 bus does the job. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby, so eating and such are easy to access even though this house is in a neighborhood.

The place was just like it looks in the photos. It is very tastefully decorated. It is definitely large enough for two people, but I can see staying there with a family of four if the kids don’t mind sharing a fold out couch bed. The kitchen was well equipped, but I have to admit that we didn’t use it much. We went out to eat.

The WiFi is not great. At one point I had to go into the front yard to check into my flight and upload my boarding pass. I think this is because we were in the basement. A dedicated router in the basement would be nice :). Basically though this is a really nice and comfortable place to stay in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend staying in Kit’s Sanctuary.

Comfortable spot for an extended stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very comfortable staying in Connie's suite for a couple weeks in February. It's tastefully designed with high ceilings and has all the amenities of home. The bed is comfortable, always something important for me. Connie was prompt with her communications, easy to deal with and very well organized. I'd recommend this spot whole heartedly to anyone looking to stay in Kitsilano.

Such a Convenient Location to UBC

  • 5 of 5

Used this as a home base to attend the CANADIAN FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS and could not have asked for a nicer place close to our event. Could walk to shops and restaurants and the place is lovely. Everything you need to make your stay perfect. Would recommend it again and may need it again if we are able to attend the GRAND PRIX FINAL in Dec.

Thank you Connie for your hospitality.

Vancouver Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Studio suite is very quiet, modern, spacious and clean. With the high ceilings and open space, you forget that there is only window to look out of. Perfect for one or two persons. For elderly persons or people with baby strollers, there is a set of stairs that takes you to the basement level, but has good handrails.
