Enjoy these features of our corner of Kitsilano:
Walk 10 minutes to Jericho Beach that links to Locarno and Spanish Banks beaches - easily an hour and a half walk with breathtaking scenery. (see our sunset photo taken from the farthest point of West Spanish Banks). Famous Kitsilano beach is about a 1/2 hour walk.
Cycle 5 minutes to join the cycling paths that will take you around False Creek past Kitsilano Beach, Granville Island, the Olympic Village and Science World as well as around English Bay and Stanley Park to Coal Harbour.
Ride the bus 5 minutes 10 minutes to Pacific Spirit Park and UBC or 20 minutes to downtown and connect easily with Vancouver's Sky Train system: a bus stop serving 4 bus routes is just a few minutes walk from our home.
Stroll along the western end of Broadway (only a two-minute walk away) with its shops, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Some of Vancouver's best restaurants are within walking distance: Thai by Montri's, Banana Leaf (Malaysian), La Quercia (Italian), Green Leaf (Sushi), Nat's NY Pizza, and the Kitsilano landmark, The Nam (vegetarian). Don't leave without trying Vancouver's (if not the world's) best gooey cinnamon buns, shipped to other restaurants around Vancouver, but made on site at Grounds for Coffee just a few minutes walk from our home.
Relax on our back deck in our well-treed, secluded back garden or catch some rays on our sunny front porch.
Vancouver has a host of festivals and outdoor activities (some are listed below). See this website for more ideas:
