“Amazing location, warm hospitable hosts, and great comfort.”

Tulip House is just by the harbour in Kitsilano with great views across to the city and the mountains beyond. We enjoyed waterside walks (the perfect antidote to jet lag) and to our amazement and delight saw several bald eagles fishing!
Dagmar and Andrew are warm and friendly hosts who made us feel very welcome and their apartment is wonderfully equipped. You could cook up an elaborate meal in their gourmet kitchen.
Tulip House is close to restaurants and anything you need in a beautiful area but still just a short bus or tram ride to the city. We would love to come and stay again if we can get back to Vancouver.

“Wonderful place to stay in Vancouver!”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife, two adult children (ages 23 & 20) and I had a wonderful time on our vacation in Vancouver.. Dagmar greeted us warmly and allowed us to check in early since the rental was available. (Andrew was out of the country so we did not get to meet him). She provided us with information on places to shop and eat near the house as well as public transportation information. Walk outside the house and the park across the street provides a beautiful view of the bay and downtown Vancouver. Public transit is only 4 short blocks away and Vancouver has an excellent public transit system. It's an easy bus ride to downtown Vancouver and Tulip House location provides a wonderful location to get away from the hustle of the day after spending time downtown. There are shops and restaurants 4 blocks away on 4th Ave as well as many more on Broadway (10 blocks south). And there are two beaches close and within walking distance. I would highly recommend Tulip House for anyone considering a trip to Vancouver area.

“Fantastic place-no better location”
Reviewed April 29, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Dagmar is a lovely welcoming host-the totally redone 2 BR, 1 BA basement apt with separate entrance is very private. You walk outside and right across the street is a small park overlooking the entire sea and the mountains north. It is lovely being in a residential, not touristy area. You can walk/run/bike for miles either north or south. Walk about a mile south and you are right at Granville Island, or take the little walk-on ferry across to the Stanley Park or continue on to Granville Island. Less than a half mile walk are too many great restaurants to list, but here are a few:
Linh, French Vienamese, very reasonable and one of the best lamb shanks in wine sauce you will ever have
Fable, one of the great places in the area
Rain or Shine Ice cream right next door to Fable, with as good ice cream as you'll have anywhere
Oakwood Canadian Bistro, a little more $$$ but fantastic

And one we didn't get to but was highly recommended by friends-Maenam

We have a new appreciation of Vancouver, which we have always loved anyway, but staying in Kits/Point Grey area is a whole other experience

We loved this apartment, it is spacious & comfortable with a cosy feeling. Dagmar & Andrew are very friendly & helpful. The apartment is well equipped with everything we could need, including local and tourist information. We plan to stay there again sometime.

“Tulip House”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Tulip House is in possibly the most desirable part of Vancouver on Point Grey Road nr. Kitsilano.
The 2 bed apartment is finished to a very high standard indeed and we stayed for 3 weeks as a family of four and were very comfortable, and I am fussy.
Andrew and Dagmar are wonderful and welcoming and happy to help with anything they can - we hope to be visiting again and will plan our trip around the availability with them.
There is a great supermarket 5 mins walk away along with plenty of other shops.
One of the best pools we've visited is 15 mins walk away along Point grey rd along a stretch which is restricted to bicycles, so is nice and quiet, and Kitsilano beach is just a few minutes more.
We biked a lot which is a great way to see Vancouver, and all the main bus routes run nearby.
We saw most of Vancouver and have relatives there and feel that this area is one of the best to stay in - the houses including Tulip House are spectacular and Andrew and Dagmar are the perfect hosts - our best holiday so far - couldn't recommend highly enough.

Having booked Tulip House based on trip adviser reviews we were not disappointed, The accomodation is as described in a beautiful quiet location on Kitsilano waterfront and an ideal place to base our weeks stay in Vancouver. The owners Dagmar and Andrew allowed us to check in early which was much appreciated. Andrew (Dagmar was away) was very welcoming and offered plenty of tips of places to visit. The facilities were very clean and comfortable with good on road parking and we would not hesitate to recommend it, and if we are lucky enough th return to Vancouer we would definitely hope to book Tulip House.

“Close to Beaches, Shopping, and Downtown”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Two bedroom walkout basement Hungarian flavoured accommodation in Kitslano. Kitchen and dining room very bright and well stocked with kitchenware. Living room also spacious and cozy with old style gas fireplace and TV. Wonderful hosts giving us chocolate treats and letting us stay way past normal check out time on day of departure.
