My husband and I visited this wonderful main floor apartment as part of a much later holiday. We were met by two others in our party. We were not disappointed! The house is a period property that is in a great location; very close to the beach, Granville Island, False Creek Ferries and Downtown Vancouver. The apartment is full of antiques (which we were very careful with) and has enough space for the 4 of us to live comfortably. Ian was a great host, explaining the property on arrival in not only the practical sense but also the historical facts regarding it's location and the many antiques inside. He met us and poured us a drink straight away which is always great in my eyes! Thanks for a great stay Ian!

This house is simply amazing! It's well decorated with antiques, stained glass windows, gorgeous light fixtures, and beautiful woodwork. The front entrance is just stunning. The suite consists of the entire main floor and a deck in the front and back. Private feeling and spacious. The king bed was really comfortable. The neighborhood was clean and safe. We were just minutes away from lots of shops and restaurants, and a short walk to the beach. The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, cookware, spices, condiments, and appliances. Ian was a great host and made us feel right at home. We're so glad we stayed!

Fantastic neighbourhood, very accommodating host! Ian's century old+ home is a marvel. Lots to look at; amazing light fixtures; well equipped kitchen; spacious and perfect for entertaining. The king sized bed is very comfortable; the pull-out isn't too bad either. We had a terrific weekend! Thanks, Ian :)

We enjoyed an exceptionally good experience at Ian's Kitsilano home. Our host was extremely attentive to our needs and checked in with us regularly to make sure everything was okay. His rental is a beautiful character home filled with Victorian-inspired furniture and decor. We had the whole main floor to ourselves. Lovely chandeliers, stain-glass windows, comfortable furniture and a King-sized bed made for a great stay. Ian has spared no expense with his rental and his attention to detail is what makes the place so fun and enjoyable. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances--I was even able to make my daily smoothy with his Cuisinart blender! The washer and dryer are an added bonus. The location is a short walk to Kitsilano beach and a few blocks from Granville Island. If we come back to Vancouver, we would definitely stay here again.
