Kitsilano Garden Suites

Looking for short term accommodation in Vancouver?

Rather than stay in the heart of the city, consider Kitsilano Garden Suites, offering Vancouver short term rentals in an idyllic neighbourhood.

Two beautifully appointed suites available for short term vacation rentals are located in wonderful Kitsilano, just a sort 5-minute drive from downtown shopping, entertainment and the business district.

Our lovingly restored craftsman style 1912 heritage house is a great home away from home, located in the quiet north of Fourth Avenue area of Kitsilano on a quiet maple tree lined street, one block to the water’s edge and 3 blocks to Jericho Beach. Located one block off of Point Grey Road on the SW corner of First Avenue and Collingwood Street. This is one short-term vacation rental in Vancouver that our guests can call home time and time again.

This location is a “Walker’s Paradise” with a Walkscore of 93. Check out the full Kitsilano Garden Suites website for more info and contact for availability.

This positive feedback came in to Margaret recently:

We all wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in your garden suites. Nicholas was there when we arrived to show us around and they couldn’t have suited us better. Our weather was amazing – no rain so my elderly parents were able to get out every day for a short walk. The location was perfect so very close to everything. We hope to use the suites many more times in the future and we have told many friends how wonderful they are.

Getting to know Kitsilano

Coming to Vancouver? Want to learn a bit more about Kitsilano? Here are some links.

A list of Kitsilano restaurants

A history of Kitsilano. Interesting information; however, it only starts with Caucasian settlements. Of course, the area was settled much earlier by Squamish First Nations, and is named after a family of chiefs. The Squamish name for Kitsilano is Xats’alanexw.

The Kitsilano Yacht Club. It was founded in 1934 and over the years the Club has developed into an exciting venue for one-design sailing. Kits Yacht Club is home to active one-design fleets including the Star, 505, Lightning, Martin 242, and Pirate classes. It also has a number of kayaks and paddlers.

Kitsilano’s Farmer’s market

Kitsilano Beach has lots of attractions. Besides the beach, the park, the water, the ocean and mountain views, this is what you get:

  • Connection to the Seaside Seawall system
    Concession stands
    The Watermark on Kits Beach Restaurant
    Oceanside heated outdoor pool
    Tennis courts
    Basketball courts (and semi-official beach volleyball courts)
    Lifeguarded Victoria Day (late May) to Labour Day (early September)
    … and, last not least, the Planetarium

After you’ve spent a long day walking around the park, I’d recommend you top it off with a visit to Videomatica, one of Canada’s best video stores.

The New Rental Market

We’ve been talking about the changes in the market and the need for rental reductions to reflect this situation. Here’s an example.

Some recent Kitsilano Heritage house short term tenants have just rented a one bedroom apartment fully furnished (for long term) and equipped on the 23rd floor of a fairly new building close to the Beach Crescent neighbourhood in downtown. The suite has sweeping views etc. for $1600 a month utilities included!

This price is indicative of where the market is returning to.
