Beautiful 1 bedroom character apartment, half a block from Kitsilano Beach, and pool.

This wonderful and sunny apartment is located in the heart of Kitsilano, right at the beach. It has soaring 10' ceilings, oversized floor to ceiling windows with lots of light.
The apartment has 1 bedroom with a very comfortable queen size bed. It is nice and private and is quiet.

This space is well maintained and VERY CLEAN! Please note if you are looking for hotel-like or brand new accommodations, this will not be a fit. It's important to me that your expectations are met. This is an old character building from the 1920's; while beautfully maintained, very clean, and adored for, it still holds qualities of an old building. We are in the process of painting and making a few updates to the space, pictures may vary during this process, but we're upgrading. If that's sounds like it's up your alley, then this will be a perfect fit.
Maybe a little more information than usual, but we always appreciated hosts at AirBnB, who were providing us the little extra info, to avoid any misinterpretation from the beginning.
Maximum two guests at all times.
And if you are still missing any info, just contact us, and we will answer any question right away!
Thank you for reading:)

Pleased to meet you! Welcome to your new home away from home. Here you will find yourself at home, and at ease.
I love to travel, and have been many places, and stayed in many types of places. I know the importance of comfort and cleanliness when that's what you're looking for! There's nothing worse then a bad place ruining your vacation. I promise you will not find that here. You will be able to let out that sigh of relief when you walk through the door, and think to yourself "okay we chose good"
I love all things art, so you will find original paintings all around my house. I am also a creator of children's books, so if you are lucky you may just find an original character illustration in your midst.
I love the beach, nightlife, great food, and I love it all at my finger tips. You will see the truth to this when you stay. Everything is within moments of here.
There's nothing like starting your vacation off right!
