We were welcomed by Karen who was very helpful and friendly.The decor is inspired by and with corkscrews, and the bespoke stain glass windows are a stunning feature! Breakfast is enjoyed around a large polished wooden...

Recommended to us by our dearest friends (world travellers), Corkscrew did not disappoint. We've stayed at many B&B's as well, but Corkscrew will remain unforgettable. Karen wasn't there durning our stay, but Wayne filled in over and above the call of duty. Corkscrew is a home away from home in the most beautiful area of Vancouver (Kitsilano). A short walk...

What an amazing place to stay - beautifully restored house (loved the many stained glass windows); delightful themed room; comfortable bed; plenty of room in the house to relax in; charming garden areas to sit in; Karen's amazing breakfasts!!! The reality far outweighed the information we gleaned from the website. The B & B was situated in a quiet neighbourhood,...

We LOVED our stay at Corkscrew Inn. We had a very comfortable bed in a beautiful room. And Karen's breakfasts were fantastic and different each day - Lemon, ricotta pancakes, fritatas, smoked salmon egg scramble and all so delicious. Also a fantastic corkscrew collection on the property. Don't look anywhere else. Also a fun eatery (Local) and a great jazz...

She made sure we knew how to get around Vancouver and informed us of the best places to visit and what to avoid. We cannot recommend the Corkscrew Inn enough - it is a...

The Corkscrew is a clean and comfortable “Craftsman-style” home. It’s charming and cosy, with attractive gardens. It’s located in a great part of Kitsilano, close to the water and parks. There are plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance. They provide a substantial and satisfying breakfast. This was our second stay here and if we get back to Vancouver...

This was the second time I stayed at the Inn. This time I spent 13 nights while I was in an intensive residency for my program. No complaints. Excellent service, tasty meals. I have challenges with food allergies and Karen was great at keeping track of things and figuring out things that worked for me. The Arizona room, which I...

This was our first time staying at the Corkscrew Inn and it was truly a wonderful bed and breakfast with an amazing host! Karen is super friendly and makes delicious breakfasts (plus homemade jams!). The room we stayed in (French room) was beautiful and there's free wifi. You won't regret staying here!

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
