About the property

Your Sanctuary In The Heart Of Vancouver.

The Garden Suite has been newly renovated and is beautifully decorated with eclectic art and a blend of vintage and modern furnishings. There is a flat screen TV and blue tooth MP3 player in the living room. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need, including coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, dishwasher bakeware and serving dishes . The bathroom has a soaker tub and both hand held and rain shower heads.

Note: The suite is located in our private family home and there is some sound transfer between floors. We make an effort to be quiet, especially during sleeping times, but please let us know if you have any specific needs or requests. Also, being on the ground floor, the ceilings, (8', 7') are comfortable for most but low for some. There are a couple of low spots in the hallway.

The suite looks out onto the garden, which has three separate areas: one secluded spot with hot tub, (shared with upstairs guests); a large private covered area with table, bench, chairs and BBQ; and a quite corner for relaxing with a book. There is one parking spot off the garden.

Kits Point is a special neighborhood. Surrounded on three sides by beaches and public parkland overlooking English Bay, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains. It is just across the Burrard Street Bridge from Downtown Vancouver. Everything you need is at your doorstep here including specialty shops, wonderful cafes, pubs, world class restaurants and shopping along West 4th Avenue. The parks surrounding "The Point" are home to The Macmillan Space Centre, the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Museum of Vancouver, which is a stop for Vancouver's hop-on-hop-off Trolley Tours.

The gorgeous Oceanside parkland include, beachside tennis and basketball courts, Kits Beach Pool, the worlds largest, (115 meter), saltwater swimming pool and the Kitsilano Showboat, an iconic Vancouver summer outdoor performance spot!

Granville Island with it's artists' studios, cafes, bars, restaurants and live theatres is just a beautiful 15 minute walk away along the waterfront. Skiing is beautiful at the local mountains, Grouse, Cypress and Seymour, each a 30-40 minute drive away.

Downtown Vancouver is a beautiful walk away across the Burrard street Bridge, or five minutes by car or bus.

About Joanne

We love to travel, but find it hard to leave our beloved Kit's Point. Wherever we go and as much as we love it we're always amazed by the breathtaking beauty of home once we return.

Joanne purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Joanne chose West Side

We originally bought here because of the gorgeous surrounding parks and beaches. Since then we've come to love the entire neighbourhood, not just the convenience to everything, but the feeling of community here.

What makes this apartment unique

Surrounded by nature, yet close to everything the city has to offer.

Great location, awesome amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very comfortable home! It’s a basement unit but has big bright windows you feel like you are in a house. Everything was super clean and the kitchen had everything I needed to cook multiple meals for my family. Didn’t get to use the hot tub due to weather but it’s nice and secluded. Can’t wait to return in the summer time.

Location was fantastic easy walk to Kits beach. We had a car so parking was a bonus. Public transport only a short walk. Hot tub and barbeque great. Instructions were clear. Joanne has made it like home from home. We would recommend it to anyone.

Quiet, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

First off, thanks Joanne for your accommodation of my early check in request! This is a nice spot, good location and very quiet. Great kitchen facilities, good internet and super shower! It is a basement suite so it does feel a bit "damp"! Once again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this highly to anyone looking for a good place to stay in Kits!
