Had a wonderful stay here last week. Simone is a warm and welcoming host who provided a great experience - and delicious breakfast! A big plus was the parking she provides for her guests. I reccommend this B&B to anyone visiting Vancouver.

Simone - you are fabulous! Quite possibly one of the best hosts I've encountered at a B&B - a genuinely lovely person and a real pleasure to chat with. You also make some lovely breakfasts. I spent 3 or 4 nites (can't quite recall now) back in August. I stayed in the Seabreeze room and enjoyed the view from my...

We booked the big room last minute for 3 nights and were advised by Simone that booking that particular room last minute did not have a cancellation policy. Unfortunately we were unable to use the booking and advised Simone. Instead of just taking our money she worked hard to fill the room so that we would not have to pay...

We spent 6 nights at Simone's place and loved it. We stayed in the Seabreeze Room which even has a balcony where you have sun in the afternoon. The area is really nice, the beach not far away and the buses just around the corner. It's a very nice place to relax. The breakfast is fantastic!

The double bedroom upstairs has the most uncomfortable bed I have had since India! There is only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms. Bottom bedroom walls are paper thin & you will get woken up at 6.30am by the kitchen noise. The Proprietor overcharged me on leaving the B & B, showing no regard for my point of view at all....

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
