A private room in a gorgeous, cosy Kitsilano home, only steps from the world famous Kits beaches, beautiful parks and the wonderful shopping & dining hub of West 4th Av. There really is no better location in Kits. Enjoy views of the mountains and sea, fresh berries from our backyard and all the comforts of home.
Our home is the top floor of a stunning 1915 heritage mansion, with exposed timber and brickwork inside. The house enjoys fresh breezes in summer and is warm and cosy in winter.
Welcome to our home!! We absolutely love living here and are certain you will too. Kitsilano is regularly named Vancouver's best place to live - with amazing natural scenery, great shopping, cafes and all within a 10 minute bus ride from the downtown core.
Your private room contains a full queen sized bed (memory foam mattress), storage and has a large window for fresh air and light, as well as a TV with HDMI cord. There is a shared bathroom and fully functioning kitchen, as well as a living room with the world's comfiest La-z-boy reclining couch. We do live in the house, but can have as much or as little interaction as you'd like :)
Our house itself is beautiful, cosy and very quintessentially 'Canadian'! Beautiful wooden floors, exposed timber beams and brickwork. Large windows, views of the mountains and sea and a patio/balcony overlooking the backyard make it a wonderful place to relax after a day of exploring. We're located on the top floor of a three story heritage mansion, with a private secure entrance.
Our home is located in the best part of 'Kits', only steps away from the famous West 4th Avenue - filled with Vancouver's best food, bars and shopping. Walk a few moments in the other direction, and you'll arrive at the famous Kits Beach and Kits Pool - Vancouver's favourite summer destination for sunbathing, swimming, BBQs and picnics. It also hosts amazing events such as the annual fireworks competition, and is home to a Vancouver institution - Local Public Eatery. We're also less than 10 minutes walk from the West Broadway shopping strip, Safeway, Whole Foods and a range of local grocers, butchers and fishmongers. We're also super close to Jericho Beach, the Spanish Banks and UBC!
Please note - as with any 100+ year old home, there are some quirks! But all in all, it's a super cosy, comfy house that all our guests love :)

My partner and I both live in the house (this is our home!), but we're happy to have as much or as little interaction as you like! We're super friendly, and more than happy to provide you with some tips, go for a beer or leave you to enjoy some 'me time'! While this is our house and we live here, we work during the week, and enjoy spending time on the weekend exploring Vancouver and its beautiful surrounds.
There's a set of stairs to our house - we're sorry if that's an issue!

Hi! I'm an Australian living in Vancouver, Canada with my partner Andy. We both absolutely love to seek new experience, eat great food, travel and enjoy life to the fullest.
Whether hosting or travelling, we're both very laid back - happy to have a chat, enjoy a wine and some laughs, or just curl up in the corner with a great book. I love to cook (especially cakes!!), so you can expect to sample some treats if staying with us.
Our 'style' of hosting is super relaxed - we can help as much or as little as you want, and we won't judge you if you just want to watch netflix in bed all day!! (I've definitely been there before!). Andy loves to chat to pretty much anyone, and always enjoys a cold beer in the sun :)
If you're our guest - welcome, and if you're our host - nice to meet you! Either way, we're looking forward to meeting you soon :)
All the best,
Grace & Andy
