About This Listing
We love our fully-furnished laneway house on the Kitsilano/Point Grey border, close to the University of British Columbia. We hope you'll love it too!
Our beautiful one-bedroom laneway house, designed and built by Smallworks, is on a very quiet residential street and is tastefully decorated. It has a spacious and airy two-story loft-style layout with vaulted ceilings.
The main floor offers an open living/dining/kitchen area and polished cement floors with radiant heat. It's great for guests who love to cook: full kitchen including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and gas range and oven.
The bedroom is on the upper floor and has a queen-size bed, dressing table/desk and plenty of hanging space in the closet.
The bathroom with tub and shower is on the main floor. There's a double sofa bed in the living/dining/kitchen area for occasional guests.
Our house is designed for a single person or a couple.
The rental price includes all utilities: gas, electricity, high-speed wireless internet and TV with basic cable.
If you like to cook outside, there's a small private patio with a BBQ, table and two chairs.
The laneway house has private laundry facilities (washer/dryer).
The laneway house offers plenty of secure storage space for bikes, luggage etc. This space is shared with us - we also use it to store our bikes and some garden tools.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the main house; the laneway house is at the bottom of our garden. We are always available in person or via email/phone to help if you have any questions or concerns, but you will not need to interact with us once you've collected your keys if you'd prefer to remain private.
Kitsilano is an amazing location - there are great local restaurants, bars and shops just a few minutes' walk away. We are just 10 minutes' walk from the beach.
There is a manual in the laneway house with details of our favourite local places to shop, eat and drink.
This location is ideal for transit users: our laneway house is 2 minutes' walk from the 99 B-Line express bus stop for The University of British Columbia or Vancouver General Hospital and for local buses to downtown Vancouver.
There's plenty of free, on-street parking for guests with a car. Connect with us if you are considering renting a car; for many guests it's really not necessary because of the great transit and our location near local shops and places to eat.
We are 20-25 minutes by taxi from Vancouver International Airport. By transit, catch the Canada Line Sky Train to Broadway-City Hall, then the 99 B-Line express bus west to Broadway and Alma. We are a couple of minutes' walk away.

Sorry, no smokers, no pets.
Guests are responsible for cleaning the laneway house prior to departure.
We had a GREAT stay at Fran and Julian`s house! They introduced and welcomed us to Vancouver and we felt at home since the very first day. They are the kindest people ever and whenever we had any questions they were always there to help.
The house is very nice and cosy and the bedroom has the MOST COMFORTABLE MATTRESS EVER!! The house is also very well equipped and has everything you need. (and everything works properly!)
The neighbourhood is very quiet and we are in walking distance of grocery shops, restaurants and Jerico beach, ect... Also, very close to bus stop to Downtown.
We really enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend it.
