Ideal location, spacious, with a well equipped kitchen. Can't wait to go back!
We stayed at Suzanne's lovely Kitsilano apartment for two nights with our 2 year old son and had a blast. The bus stop is about 20 meters from the front door, there's fantastic coffee and donuts at 49th Parallel Roasters/Lucky's Donuts a block away, a Whole Foods Market 2 blocks away, and the Kitsilano beach, pool and playground is only a 5-10 minute walk down the hill. We had lovely dinners at Fable and Maenam, and thoroughly enjoyed everything that Suzanne's apartment had to offer. The apartment itself is substantially larger than was apparent from the photos. Having two bathrooms (one with a bathtub and one with a shower) was great, and the bedrooms were spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped as well. The apartment itself gets a great breeze off the bay, which it looks onto. We also appreciated the booster seat/high chair and portable crib, which made it very easy to travel with a toddler. As other reviewers have noted, the great location means you will hear some traffic noise at times, but fans completely drowned it out. Similarly, being in an apartment building means you hear some noise at times (mainly just footfalls from upstairs and hall traffic), but it was very quiet after 10 pm. All in all, we loved our stay and would happily return.
