About the property

Convenience, Neatness, Comfort, a Heritage House at the Beautiful Kitslano B

My home is a two bedrooms character styled house located in the prestigious Kitslano beach community. The house consists of two units, the upper floor with two bedrooms from the front door is exclusively for Your use. In the house there is A King size bed, A Queen size bed in each of the bedrooms, and a sofa full size bed in the living room. Ideally, it caters to 5 people ( maybe 6 for sofa bed with two people of regular or smaller in size). It is close to much entertainment, two rows behind the famous "West Broadway" Street, a few rows from the 4th Ave, which both are famous for shops, grocery, cafes and dinning outlets. Bus stops are steps walk, while the popular Kitslano Beach is at the perfect distance for your walk and enjoyment.From the house, it takes 10 minutes drive to downtown, and 15 minutes to the airport. Netflix and TV channels of CNN, BBC, Discoveries, etc. are available. It sits on a corner lot, lots of sunshine comes through and your car can be parked freely at the front and side streets by the house.

About sheena

As both a business and leisure traveler myself for the past 30 years, I am now listing my house for the fist time. I think most travelers care about location, house cleanness, amenities and comfort on trips, i furnished my home with quality bedding and furniture, etc. However, the house is about 90 years old, hardwood floor has scratches over the years, cabinets not not as tight... I fell in love with the beautiful Kitslano and UBC Vancouver West community when I moved to Vancouver years back, it caters to my living needs and hobbies wonderfully, dinning, cafes, yoga, all within walking distance. Simply text or call me for any questions when you are in and I will respond the best I may. I wish you enjoy this city and feel at ease in a home away from your own.

Mixed feedback- cute old cottage in a great area, but worn and old in spots.

  • 3 of 5

This rental is certainly in a lovely neighbourhood. We were within walking distance of shops. The gardens and homes in the area are all so cute. The pictures shown are all true to life. Living room and dining rooms are big, open and bright. Windows are spectacular. Cute, old cottage home, with lots of space. However, there were a few drawbacks.

We were not comfortable with having no curtains or blinds at all in the living room or dining room. Anyone can see in at night. Makes you FEEL unsafe, even if everything is probably ok. The kitchen and bathroom are very old and run down. Kitchen table is mac-tac'd. Bathroom sink is very very old, and cracked, so doesn't feel clean. Biggest surprise was that the owner lives in the basement, with only a small hook on our side to keep the door shut. Though we had no issues, it was disconcerting when we arrived to get this shock. Found out later, it seems common in the area to have house sharing, but it would have been better to A) call it out up front and especially B) put a lock on our side.

I was not expecting a place to be so outdated, for this price.

That said, we were warm, had lots of room and were in a great area. If you are willing to overlook the esthetics, this place could work for you.
