Kitsilano is a charming, laid-back neighbourhood situated on the the west side of Vancouver, BC. Known for its young, active population, close proximity to Kitsilano and Jericho beach, and trendy mix of shops and restaurants lining 4th Ave, this neighbourhood is the perfect place to meet new people, hang out with friends and family, or better yet, call home!

The Kitsilano area is pre-defined by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) as the area from Burrard to Alma and from the beach to W. 16th Avenue.

Known colloquially as "Kits", this popular neighbourhood is home to many young families and couples, students, recent grads, as well as yoga studios, organic markets, cafes, and Vancouver's Greektown.

Although there are many old heritage and character homes on the tree-lined streets of Kits, the primary type of residence is multi-unit housing which includes apartments, condos, townhomes, and duplexes. In recent years, this highly sought after area has developed some of the highest housing prices, as well as the some of the highest accommodation rental rates, yet lowest availability in Vancouver.
