Kitsilano- 2bd/2ba Townhouse - Avail June 1, 2019 to August 31, 2019

This is a great townhouse in a fabulous Kitsilano (Kits) location available from June 2019 to August 31st, 2019. We are looking to exchange for the entire time but shorter exchanges may be considered. We are interested in a home exchange in Provence, Tuscany or Seville area.

It is perfect for visiting faculty, grad students or a professional couple. UBC and downtown are both a 10 minute drive away!

The Kits neighborhood is renowned for its shopping, trendy restaurants, pubs and grocery stores- all within short walking distance of the townhouse. The water and beach is 4 blocks away and there is a Starbucks on the next corner!! Public transit is on 4th with direct buses to UBC or downtown. Neighborhood walking score: 98!!

This is a bright and sunny fully furnished 950 sq ft two level townhouse with a private outside entrance from an inner courtyard located on the quiet side of the building - south facing balcony overlooking a quiet residential neighborhood not 4th Avenue.

Main floor features hardwood floors throughout and a gas fireplace in living room. 46" HD TV and DVD player. There is a full bathroom with bathtub on the main floor. Kitchen is fully stocked (pots/pans/plates etc.) and includes stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops and wood grained cabinets.

WIFI, phone, gas, hot water, basic cable and electricity available.

Easy street parking. Unrestricted and no permit required.

This townhouse has only ever been owner-occupied therefore we are looking for travellers who will treat it if it were their own. If you are looking for a party house or subletting, this is not it!

This is a non-smoking property. Maximum 2 adults.
Not suitable for young children due to set of stairs. Personal and employment references required. Sorry, no pets allowed - I am alergic to fur!
