About Sean

Originally from Vancouver, we've spent the last 10 years living in sunny San Diego. Happy to be back home in Vancouver, we love sharing our great city with travelers from all over the world.

Sean purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Sean chose West Side

We love Kitsilano because of the options and convenience. We love being able to walk to restaurants, cafes, shopping, parks and the beach. We often don't use our car on the weekends, preferring to explore our neighborhood on foot or two wheels.

With a walk score of 89 out of 100 along with a fabulous bike score of 80 and transit score of 75 you will find that everything you could want to do in Vancouver is virtually at your doorstep.

We strive to make our vacation rental an inviting place where people can relax and enjoy Vancouver. Comfy beds, a fully stocked kitchen and a comfortable living room help make our home the perfect stopover on your travels.

What makes this townhome unique

Our home has two bedrooms on two different floors, separated by the living room and kitchen on the main floor. This makes it a great layout for a family with children our two couples traveling together. Both bedrooms have their own full bathrooms.

The house is situated in such a way that the kitchen is full of sunshine in the mornings and the living room in the afternoons. A cozy patio off the upper bedroom is the perfect place to enjoy an evening beverage while taking in the Vancouver sunset.

Charming townhouse in the Kitsilano district

  • 5 of 5

We are happy we found this townhouse and stayed in the Kitsilano district rather than staying in a high-rise apartment complex in the downtown area, where parking would certainly have been an issue. We were two couples and the configuration of the structure was ideal for offering us privacy from each other. The neighborhood is quiet and free from traffic noise. The location is ideal for local restaurants, grocery shopping, etc. (Whole Foods is only a short distance away). Highly recommend. Sean is a great host. He is attentive to the needs of his guests.

Conveniently located, clean, well appointed, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We found this townhome to be perfect for our needs (family of four). The owner was flexible and accommodated our need to drop off our luggage early and to delay our departure time. The unit is very clean and well located for walking access to restaurants, shops and public transportation. Although not a problem for us, the unit has four floors and navigating stairs is required. Those who have difficulty with stairs should take this into consideration. We plan on renting this unit again on future visits to Vancouver.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location, walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and to Kits beach. Lovely neighborhood atmosphere. Unit was clean, but be prepared for 5 flights of stairs. Wish the kitchen was more stocked with utensils and pans, since we (family of 6) cooked all breakfasts and some dinners there. Otherwise, cozy, clean, quiet unit. The oversize washer and dryer was a huge advantage since we did our own housekeeping. Internet/wi-fi was a plus!! Would definitely return to this house on Trafalgar!

Beautiful, clean, sunlit, well-equipped home made for an enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently took a short vacation to Vancouver with my family and this home served as a terrific "home away from home" during our stay. The kitchen was thoughtfully supplied with basic appliances, utensils and non-perishable cooking items. The bathrooms were spacious and clean. The beds were comfy. We enjoyed being walking distance from a number of restaurants and coffee shops and a short drive to a number of local tourist attractions.

My only critique is this: there are a number of staircases in this home separating the living room area from the kitchen and two bedrooms. If you are traveling with anyone who is elderly, has mobility issues, or with little ones - you should factor this into your travel plans - as it can make getting around within the home somewhat difficult.

Great space in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with our two girls (6&8) and there was plenty of space for us all to relax after busy days around town. We really enjoyed being in a neighborhood we probably wouldn't have visited if we stayed in a hotel. There were lots of restaurants and interesting shops within a 5-10 minute walk, and the ocean and a great public pool were also an easy walk. It was always quick to get a cab and the fares to Granville Island, Stanley Park, and downtown were reasonable.

Or a 7 minute drive if you have a car. There's a Zip Car a short walk away. Sign up for your membership before you visit and have access to a car or van when you need it, providing easy access to Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Stanley Park. Or take 1h40m to drive to Whistler for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter.

The Kitsilano Community Center provides access to a full fitness center. In the summer the playground is very popular with children. In the winter the ice rink is open - lace up your skates or rent a pair and take to the ice.

Centrally located and close to many amenities, Kitsilano is the perfect location for your vacation.
