The “Welcome to Kitsilano” sign is a staple of Vancouver’s beachy neighborhood, just a quick hop, skip, and a jump over the Burrard bridge from Downtown. Kitsilano blends the office and shopping environment of Downtown with the laid back beach lifestyle. It’s waterfront location offers unobstructed views of the ocean, mountains, and city; with an outdoor pool, tennis courts, and seawall right on Kitsilano Beach! Housing options are eclectic, with a mix of duplexes, townhomes, bungalows, heritage homes, low-rise strata, and detached dwellings.
Kitsilano is also a hub of local shopping and entertainment, with thrift stores, boutiques, restaurants, specialty food stores, cafes, pubs, and bars all on its main commercial corridor. Rainy days are well spent at the Martime Museum, Vancouver Museum, and Conservatory of Music – and don’t forget Bard on the Beach in the summertime! Nearby schools include Gordon, Bayview, Tennyson, and Henry Hudson Elementary, as well as Kitsilano, Lord Byng, and Prince of Wales Secondary.
