Spent two nights here again. We arrived at dinner time and keys were waiting. As usual we felt so at home in the Zen Suite. I awoke to the smell of coffee and was greeted by our host, Sam when I went upstairs to ask for a cup. Homemade breakfast to order followed. The table was set beautifully with fruit...

I recently stayed 3 nights in two different rooms Wedgewood and The Zen. Both were quiet, clean, and well kept. Reservation, check in and check out were very smooth. Breakfasts were very good and Simone happily prepared a slight variation for me to accommodate my gluten free requirement for celiacs. Thank you very much Simone and Sam for your hospitality....

We stayed in the Wedgwood room which was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the chat over the breakfast table. The breakfasts were delicious. The location was good with restaurants just round the corner and a short walk to the beach. Simone was an excellent host. Would highly recommend.

This was a great bed and breakfast, we stayed in the cozy kits room which has a double bed but that's ok, we still like each other lol. It was very central to everything and we like to walk. We were 5 min walk from the beach and 10-15 min from Granville Island which you can wander around there or...

We were visiting friends in Vancouver and they recommended Between Friends B&B, so we were very pleased that there was a room available. We then received a call back from Sam, the manager and there was a mix up with booking, so our room wasn't available, but to compensate he offered us the main floor suite in their house next...

Neighborhood 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.

“The Seabreeze Room is great for 3, as long as you don't mind sharing a bath -- the sofa bed is very comfortable and there's a balcony that would be lovely in the summer.”
