From the moment we were greeted by Christopher at Kitsilano Cottage, we knew this was going to be a memorable time in Vancouver. With soft music playing in the background, Christopher introduced us to his suite and to his impeccable skills as a host. A basket of organic fruit, fresh baked goods, wine, and chocolate were meticulously laid out on the kitchen counter. The fridge was stocked with organic butter, jam, cream, milk, bottled water and juice. Everything needed for a tasty breakfast, which lasted our entire stay. As a coffee 'snob', I was particularly impressed with Christopher's selection of machinery (French press, espresso and drip coffee machines) and freshly roasted coffee beans. He even had coffee ground for the espresso machine as he didn't feel his machine did it fine enough. Fresh flowers in every room only added to the ambiance. The beds were extremely comfortable and the amenities beyond expectations. This was like a 5 star hotel with the comforts of home. The location was fantastic, within walking distance to shops and restaurants on both West Broadway and West 4th and only 7 short blocks to the beach. We didn't even bother venturing into downtown Vancouver as we enjoyed the eclectic Kitsilano neighbourhood. The Eatery was a particular favourite. I loved having coffee on the patio early morning, listening to the birds chirping. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at A Suite @ Kitsilano Cottage and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Vancouver.
