About this listing
This is an ideally located 2 bedroom suite with 1 extra sleeping mats. We are on bus route to Downtown Vancouver that goes by Kitsilano and Granville Island. If you have a car there is lots of free parking on the street. The unit has a large screen TV, DVD player, wireless internet, full bathroom, kitchen, living room, back garden entrance. We are located 5 blocks to the beach, 25 minute walk to the University of British Columbia, 4 blocks to the West Point Grey shopping area. We have free tennis courts and a beautiful park, with a view of downtown Vancouver, one block away. A few blocks west is the University Golf Club, a public golf course and restaurant.
The neighbourhood is quiet, and very safe. There are views of the city all around. We are close to Pacific Spirit Park with bike and hiking trails. Our neighbourhood beaches are Jericho, Locarno, and Spanish Banks. The University of British Columbia has numerous attractions including the Museum of Anthropology, the Beaty Biodiversity Centre, The Belkin Art Gallery, The Botanical Gardens, the Nitobi Gardens, Wreck Beach, and many others.
Our place is private and self contained. You have your own entrance off the lane, and can come and go as you please. Please note that we live above the unit, so there may be noise occasionally from us. We try to be quiet, but if you like absolute quiet, our place may not be for you.

Tina's place was great! Perfect location, neat and tidy, and had everything we needed.
The place was cozy and very representative of the neighborhood it was in! It should be noted that the place is a partially underground suite, in a slightly older home - but it has been updated so it is very bright. Being in the basement though (and in Vancouver in general), there were quite a few bugs inside the house that we found during our stay and it is a little dusty, so if you have allergies, they might be irritated.
We were very happy at our cute Point Grey hideaway. Location, amenities, and cleanliness were all perfect. Our host was very accommodating and flexible. In short, we were delighted with our stay.
The host was there to greet us but otherwise did not come by. This was okay as we knew the area well and felt we could make requests if needed. The photos are representative although some of the furniture is different. Watch out for the bathroom as it is difficult to keep water off the floor and it becomes very slippery. Otherwise, everything was there and we had a good stay.
Tina had a lovely apartment, just as advertised. The apartment was clean, had all the essentials needed and was in a great location. Tina was also very helpful in providing tips and recommendations for restaurants, all of which we tried and were great. Thanks for a great stay. One point to note is that there is some noise from pipes and footsteps from the family who live upstairs, but that's to be expected in a basement flat. My husband and I had a newborn and this was our first trip. She slept through any noises, so it was no problem. I would definitely return. Thanks Tina!
We had such a great 3 nights in Tina's apartment - so comfortable, well appointed and situated. Highly recommended, we'd definitely stay again if we are ever in Vancouver!
Tina met us at the apartment upon our arrival. Check in and communication was very easy. The apartment was in a wonderful location, parking was easy, beaches were wonderful, we had a great stay. We already knew the area very well however the added touches in the apartment were nice, local maps and menus of local cafes, brochures of things to do. Wi-Fi worked great, there were many amenities in the apartment. I would definitely stay here again.
Very quiet and peaceful (except for my kids lol)
I should also note I usually have a horrible time sleeping away from home, with a bad back, and I slept like a baby in the bed! The mattress topper was wonderful. I would definitely rent this place again for future stays.
