The space

Very open, bright loft style apartment in beautiful, trendy, Kitsilano, Vancouver. Just 10 minutes from downtown with bus transit seconds away. Located above historic Zulu Records, one of the oldest record stores in the city. You can step right out onto West 4th avenue for some of the best shopping and dining in town, or walk just 6 blocks down the hill to kits beach to go for walk. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area but the neighborhood is quiet by night. If you'd rather stay in, however, there is a huge 150 sq ft. deck where you can lounge or have a BBQ. Also included is a 46" LED TV, Apple TV with Netflix, board games, as well as a great stereo and hundreds of vinyl records to choose from. The bedroom is separated by sliding doors and has a queen size bed and closet space. No in-suite laundry included but there are laundromats located a few blocks away. Wireless internet in suite. Only one neighbour in the building who you won't even know is there so noise is never an issue. You can listen to music all night if you like!
Sheets and towels are provided for your convenience. Kitchen does not include a dishwasher but otherwise is fully functional with most appliances.
No smoking (except on deck) and no pets please.

John & Alex's place is amazing! the feeling of space and light is lovely and the furnishings are very tasteful and make you feel right at home. The bed is so comfortable, you are guaranteed a good nights sleep. John and Alex are so accommodating, they left us iced tea in the fridge after a long journey. The access arrangements were so easy as John was there to welcome us as well as offer the free use of their Wi-Fi, travel guides and everything else in their wonderful home. The BBQ was a fantastic bonus and the balcony was the icing on the cake with sun lounger and seating area for a perfect BBQ with out family and friends. The views of the mountains and downtown were glorious. The traffic noise is a reminder of how fab a location you are actually in, being handy for all the restaurants for those brunches and evening meals out. The beach is a 10 minute walk down hill and there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose on the way back up. It's only 20 minutes walk to Granville island which is a must for great crafts, markets, restaurants and 40 minutes walk into Granville street. At the beach there is also a water taxi point to sail into the city with lots of harbour options for shopping, restaurants and nightlife. At the beach there are lots of places of interest too and a park for children as well as beachside eatery. John & Alex's apartment is an excellent choice for the perfect holiday with everything you could wish for. I can't recommend highly enough and I know all our English relative visiting our Canadian relatives in Kitsilano will always look to rent John & Alex's as a first option. Thank you John & Alex for the perfect home!

This is a great apartment! It has character and authenticity with a comfortable,lived-in patina. With it's instrumental decor, great vinyl collection and cool eclectic style it feels just like the Kitsilano apartment of a rock star, just before he makes it big. ( Oh, that's exactly what it is.) The location of this place is legendary. The four or five blocks up West Fouth Avenue are probably the best mix of shops the avenue has. This area is a weekend evening destination for Vancouver young people. If you like that there's no need to go elsewhere. The balcony is a special feature where you can chill in complete privacy and watch the life on the Avenue go by. We loved sitting up there on a sunny afternoon enjoying a glass of wine nd the soft strains of our host's music wafting gently from the stereo out the patio door. So, of course, we want to return as soon as it's possible.
