The space

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 chair 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 HDTV with basic cable.

Guest access

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 spare 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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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 20-30 minutes by taxi from Vancouver International Airport.

Stayed here for two weeks visiting family. The property is extremely well maintained in nice area of Kitsilano with transport very close by. Fran and Julian are very welcoming hosts who have great ideas about making the most of one's time in Vancouver. Lovely feeling of independence and privacy knowing that Julian and Fran were close by if needed. Would have no hesitation about staying here again and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone seeking a home from home in Vancouver.

Our hosts made us feel very welcome by personally greeting us and showing us around the cute house. They had tea and milk in the fridge for us, which was appreciated after a long drive. We loved the area, it's the best of the best ! We walked to Granville island and took the bus back. We also walked down to the ocean a lot and great location to watch the celebration of light foreworks across the bay. Lots of great restaurants near by and great hiking trails at UBC. Nature when you want it, and city action just a short bus ride away. Good idea to get a compass card bus pass for downtown Vancouver trips. We parked our car in the very safe neighbourhood and walked a lot. Very peaceful and quiet neighbourhood. We even got a lovely ocean breeze in the loft to cool off on those hot July days. All in all a fantastic location and great hosts ! We will be back for sure !

What a lovely laneway house. Fran gave us a warm welcome and answered every question. There was tea and coffee for a good start. The neighborhood was beautiful. Old trees, nice gardens and very quiet. The bus is walking distance. Many lovely restaurants and shops in the area. I would book it any time again. Thanks.

Fran & Julian'a laneway house was very clean. Very well equipped and their instructions guide was very organized. Had all the information you need from how to use the machines to recommended restaurants and shops.. The location was the best! Everything is in walking distance and its a bus ride away from UBC. They were very easy to communicate with and always there to answer any questions. I highly recommend this listing!!

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. Nuno and Alejandra
