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.
No smoking on premises. No pets. No flushing of tampons, pads or condoms in the toilet.
Great location. Close to UBC , the shops and restaurants in Kitsilano and a short walk to Jericho Beach. The suite is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Tina is a gracious host who gave us our privacy but was always available to provide any assistance we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
My granddaughter and I came to Vancouver to visit the University of British Columbia. I was a little nervous booking our stay in a "unconventional" way (ok, new to me!). Everything worked out perfectly - Tina sent us lots of good information, the apartment was pristine, cute and comfortable. The location was perfect for us. Looks like we'll be back because my granddaughter committed to UBC! If you're looking for great coffee and treats while in Vancouver, don't miss Beyond Bread just down the street on 4th.
We arrived at Tina's home after a long day in Vancouver, and quite tired; with two queen beds, it felt very comfortable for two couples. It was clean and cozy. The neighborhood is astounding!
Great location for UBC and downtown plus 10th avenue shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Nice and quiet. Would stay again. Very helpful on departure.
Tina was very welcoming and gave us great recommendations on what to do in the neighborhood. The place is very cozy and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable (including a lovely garden). It is indeed very close to the beach in a very quiet neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay.
nice note about nearby restaurants. clean and lovely, easy kitchen. Great location.
My colleague and I stayed at the suite while attending interviews on the UBC campus. The location is amazing - close to the beach, shops and restaurants, and numerous bus routes. The suite is comfortable and I would definitely stay there again.
