“Serenity Awaits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

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.

We are always cautious about returning somewhere we loved and we hadn't stayed here for 10 years so we were delighted to find it as good as we remembered if not better! The suite is spacious, fantastically well equipped, extremely clean and in a great part of town. Ideal place for a family to stay. We enjoyed the generous baskets of baked goods and fruit. As a host Christopher had gone the extra mile with little touches such as fresh flowers, magazines and CDs to ensure we felt welcome and at home. In addition Kitsilano is a very peaceful location and there was no problem with parking. Nice cafes and restaurants a short stroll away. Hope to return again.

We stayed in early September, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and found the 2 bedroomed suite to be completely perfect. The location is ideal, walking distance to the beach, great resturants but so peaceful. The suite itself is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and fully equipped. The welcome basket of breads, muffins, cookies was devine and we had enough to use for breakfast for our whole 3 day stay. There was also great coffee and a bottle of wonderful red wine that was greatly appreciated! Christopher the owner, was so welcoming and helpful. There is a brillant folder in the house covering your every need. All in all I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: The suite is perfect for 2 or up to 4 people and is priced by how many guests there are.

We had a lovely stay here on a family trip with our daughters. Christopher is a great host, greeting us with a bottle of organic wine and baskets of terrific pastries and organic fruit. The suite itself is comfortable and the street is quiet for being so close to many of the wonderful things Vancouver has to offer. There's also a nice little patio to coffee on in the morning or relax with a glass of wine in the evening. The kitchen is well-equipped (With a whole bean coffee grinder! And an espresso machine!), the suite is very pretty and well-appointed, the beds are very comfortable and there is a washer and dryer in the suite as well.

It was the perfect place for us to stay, and our only regret is that we were not staying a little longer.

We were moving from Crescent Beach to Vancouver, an hour away, and needed a home between homes for the month of October. We found the perfect place for such a long stay and easily settled in to A Suite @ Kitsilano Cottage thanks to Christopher's attention to detail and willingness to provide all the comforts of home.

We loved that when we arrived, the suite was immaculate, a bowl full of fresh fruit and treats from the local bakery were on the kitchen counter. Wine, a selection of teas and coffee were also very much appreciated. We could have easily stayed longer thanks to the coziness of the suite, a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, convenience of having a washer and dryer, and having enough space to entertain and even invite our family for Thanksgiving dinner. We immediately grew to love the close proximity to everything, and so many wonderful restaurants. We really enjoyed the neighbourhood and especially loved that we could walk to the beach as well. We greatly appreciated Christopher's hospitality and will definitely recommend the suite to our out of town guests and friends here at home.

Thank you!!!

A perfect home away from home!

I have stayed in many Kitsilano retreats in the past 10 years + this was definitely the best! The Suite is so well equipped + Christopher leaves no detail un-catered for; the visitor feels positively spoiled.

I will certainly be back soon.

Many Thanks

I had to be in Vancouver for surgery and was looking for a place for a friend and I to stay in comfort and privacy - both from the outside world and from each other. Christopher's suite was the ideal answer for us. From our first meeting we found Christopher to be the perfect host.

We were not in Vancouver under ideal conditions, but finding this oasis of quiet comfort was a real blessing. The rooms were beautiful, spotless, comfortable and exactly what we needed.

The bountiful basket of fruits and treats was more than adequate to keep us happily nibbling for days. How thoughtful to include butter and cream for the coffee! Imagine roses on the table, wine on the counter, Italian soda in the fridge - impossible to find service like that anywhere else.

We have both been raving to our friends and families about the great place we found - so convenient to the shops and restaurants of Broadway and West 4th, but so quiet and secluded and cozy.

Thank you so much, Christopher. We had a lovely stay.

Linda
