Shared 2 br apt.
Good sized private room with bright natural light from windows running entire length of the wall (north facing). Your own marble bathroom with a soaking tub. Comfortable living room with plenty of open space. Roomy kitchen with marble countertops and well equipped. Lovely inviting veranda with wrought iron 2 seater swing & calming backyard. In beautiful Kitsilano - fully residential neighbourhood - just 20 min walk to Kits Beach & many transit options minutes away.

The space

Well equipped, comfortable and welcoming. A relaxing space to come home to after a day of exploring Vancouver, or choose to spend your entire day taking it easy at home, on the veranda, and in the backyard.

Food lovers/guests have commented that it's an easy kitchen to create their favorite meals in.

This area is one of the nicest residential areas of beautiful Kitsilano. It is quiet and peaceful - no busy, noisy, traffic here. It is on the main floor of a house with only two other suites - 3 people upstairs and 2 people in the basement. This means you'd be staying in a home environment (not apartment building) and it also means,(like any house) you will hear them from time to time. It is a great home and I am happy to welcome you.

If you ever wondered what it might be like to live in beautiful Vancouver, then get ready... it is waiting for you here.

Perfect for a single person or a couple.

Guest access

You have your own private room with a good double bed, white linens, beautiful mahogany desk, and lazy boy recliner. Windows along the entire back wall for as much light as you want and a view of the veranda and landscaped, private, back yard. This room can run cold in the winter sometimes, so a portable heater is provided, should you feel the need. Good closet space in the bedroom and extra space in the hall closet as well.

The full bath ( with tub and shower) is all marble, bright, and spotless. The only sharing is the kitty's litter box, which I keep clean. I regularly get compliments on this space.

Interaction with guests

I am an ESL teacher, and I love people of all ages and from all cultures. I enjoy interacting as much - or as little - as you want. I am easy to talk with so just let me know what is right for you. My bedroom does not share a wall with your room. Instead, our bathrooms are back to back, for the maximum privacy possible.

I grew up in Kitsilano and am happy to guide you as to the hidden local spots or the main attractions.

I have a kitty, Zorro, who is great with people. He is an indoor cat though, and care to not let him out is important.

Like you, I am an Airbnb traveller, so I understand the importance of striking the right balance in a shared home.

Other things to note

Free use of washer & dryer - between 8am to 9pm, Wifi, Netflix.

This is a quiet residential neighbourhood, it is important to be respectful; come and go without undue noise. Since the apartment is in a house, please note you will hear people upstairs and downstairs on occasion. Remove your shoes at the door. Kindly, hang up wet towels up in the bathroom, they should not be left in the bedroom. Also, do not leave bath mat on bathroom floor - instead pick it up and hang over to edge of the bathtub. Generally clean up after yourself.

The location is ideal for anyone visiting Vancouver. Effie is very thoughtful. She is always thinking about her guests' comfort. The apartment is very clean and Effie ensures that the towels and bed linen are laundered every week. The neighbourhood is quiet, peaceful and safe. Public transit is close by and provides frequent access to all of Vancouver. There are also excellent restaurants nearby as well as a Starbucks and a Subway. All in all a very memorable and positive experience.

Shout out to Zorro, the kitty, who is very affectionate and very smart. The location is ideal, close to public transit to all parts of Vancouver and with excellent local restaurants nearby. Also, Starbucks and Subway are close. Effie is very thoughtful and keeps the suite immaculately clean. She even provided flannel sheets and pillowcases which are cosy and warm on cool autumn nights. All in all, a memorable life experience.

Effie's space is just like the pictures and the description, very clean, and plenty of light and space. The bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen were always well taken care of, clean and organized. Effie was an incredible host with top notch communication and was very knowledgable about getting around Kitsilano and the greater Vancouver area. Effie is very accommodating and she does what she can to ensure you have a great stay. This was my first long term stay through Airbnb and I couldn't have asked for a better host to introduce me to Vancouver. If you're looking for a great space, host, and location then look no further because Effie will not disappoint. Thank you Effie for a great experience!

Effie was a wonderful host. It's like she was born to host ! It's really the small things that make the biggest difference. Starting from a welcome message for myself and my niece on her chalkboard. Then she toured us around to show us her lovely clean apartment. The bathroom had plush towels and was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was beautiful and spotless. We had room in her fridge to place our things and we did a few loads of laundry, which really helped since we had been traveling for quite a few days. The free parking out back for our rental car was great and the location was excellent and close to everything. Would definatley recommend this place. Thanks so much Effie.

Great stay, nice place! It is located in Kitsilano but I cannot comment on access to transit since I had a rental car. However, Effie was gracious to offer assistance when needed and knows the area very well. Comfortable double bed with a reclining chair in the room to relax. Private bathroom was very clean and stocked with toiletry essentials. Kitchen was well supplied with all you need to make a complete meal and Effie also offered condiments, coffee, tea etc. I would recommend Effie's place to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in Kitsilano.

I am a fellow Airbnb traveller myself so, I appreciate it from both sides. I am an ESL teacher and teach (16 - 73 yr old students) downtown in Vancouver. I love working with different cultures and sharing my love of Vancouver with them. I grew up here, so I have seen Vancove…
