Lovely Character Home in Point Grey

The house is a very comfortable living space. It is a character home with lots of charm and very clean. It is bright and cheery with plenty of large trees in the surrounding area. The beach is a 20-minute walk down the hill and a quick drive up! Pacific Spirit Park, nearby, has lovely walks. My home is very accessible to downtown by bus (25 min) and other local shopping areas. The UBC Golf Course is nearby. All Utilities included (cable, internet, Netflix). Cleaning lady once a month included.. I am flexible about the dates and like to rent the property at least six months of the year.

About Me
Hi My name is Alvi. I have travelled to England, Scotland, Romania, The Czech Republic, Turkey, Greece and Spain. I enjoy reading historical fiction and am an avid outrigger paddler in Vancouver, BC. I have done several house exchanges over the years but now have a lovely character home to rent for specified periods to people who need to reside near the University of BC. My home is in Point Grey, near the Village and not far from UBC gates.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Alvi's home. She has been very generous and diligent in terms of anticipating and responding to my needs as a tenant. The home itself is very spacious with regard to the living room dining and area, in particular, the master bedroom and the front and back yard/gardens. There is elegant touches throughout the house, symbolized by the genuine wood burning fireplace, and enjoyable selection of books. There is ample furnishings in the highly functional kitchen as well. Everything works and, if anything doesn't, it is attended to promptly by Alvi who lives in the neighbourhood and comes by the place multiple days each week to care for the yard/garden. Finally, the location is extremely convenient being with in three blocks of transit to UBC and downtown, bike route, coffee, groceries, gas station (for wood for the fireplace), not to mention being 6 blocks from the UBC endownment lands (Camosun Bog, Spirit Park with endless trails) and Jericho beach.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alvina's very sweet house in W. Point Grey. It was exactly has shown in the photos and as described: a comfortable, two bedroom house with a wonderful window seat (in the dinning area), a fire place, a well appointed kitchen, a splendid back yard, incredibly easy access to public transportation, and it's located close to UBC and the Spanish Banks beach area. My communications with Alvina were always very timely and easy; and she couldn't have been more pleasant to have as a landlady! I would certainly love to live there again if the occasion arises and the house is not already booked! Excellent Laura 8/8/2019 8:59:00 AM
We totally fell in love with this cozy old house and we’re very glad that we could rent this place during our stay in Vancouver. We are two exchange students from Germany studying Political Science / Computer Science at UBC. Getting to campus is incredibly quick and convenient with busses stopping right in front of the house and running frequently. It only takes about ten minutes to get to the bus loop at the heart of UBC, from there it’s only a short walk to all important buildings. This location could therefore even be considered better than some of the on-campus housing options like Fairview! Taking the bus the other way takes you right into downtown in about 25 minutes. In our opinion, the house is therefore at the perfect spot in between university and the city centre. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and have everything that we need. This makes our stay incredibly convenient and we didn’t have to worry about a thing when we arrived. Alvi even prepared the bedsheets for us. There is enough space to have friends over and the fireplace is perfect for having a wholesome evening. Having a calm desk is worth a lot for us students. While others have to fight for tables in the libraries, we are undisturbed at our apartment. Most importantly, Alvina was always very responsible to any kind of requests or issues we had and took care of them very quickly and reliably. We got along very well and she was lovely in taking care of us. We would definitely recommend this place for studying or working at UBC and compared to the housing of most of our friends at UBC this is definitely a luxurious option!
