We very recently spent 4 nights at the Between Friends B&B. We stayed in the spacious Wedgewood Room and found it to be very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were delicious and the interesting conversation with the other guests was a lovely bonus. The location was perfect for us because we could walk to most of the sights on our... More

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... More

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...

My stay at Between Friends in the Kitsilano area was very brief but pleasant. Between Friends is one of the few B&Bs or hotels in the vicinity of businesses in the Burrard Street and W 4th Avenue area. I could walk to my business appointment, which was very convenient. I stayed in the Wedgewood Room. It was clean, quiet and... More

N49°16.122' W123°9.171' This B&B has an excellent website, with a Japanese section from their Japanese manager. The owner, Simone Aardema, greeted us in August 2015. She explained the road to the CAN$6 per day underground parking garage, a short walk from the B&B. Room number 1, the Wedgewood room, is in the back of the house on the second floor.... More

If you have a choice between a hotel or this B&B in Vancouver, it's a no brainer. We live only an hour away but when we want a night out in Vancouver, from now on this will be our first choice. We stayed in the Zen Suite. Everything was first rate and the location is awesome. Thank you Sam for... More

We loved our stay at this B&B. The Kitsilano neighborhood has great shopping/dining on 4th avenue near the hotel along with some pretty residential areas and a fantastic beach where lots of people were swimming during the heat wave in July. The B&B is also just a short bus ride from the anthropology museum on the UBC campus. We didn't... More

Staying in Kitsilano

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.
