"I love being able to share a slice of Canadian country life with visitors to Langley, BC – just outside Vancouver, Canada. For the past 5 years, I’ve been hosting travelers from all over the world… some from as far as The Netherlands, UK, Japan, Brazil, Kenya and Australia. Whether it’s in our studio, big guest house or any of our other clean and comfortable vacation homes, I want our guests to have a great stay. As a full-time host, I’m dedicated to making sure that my guests enjoy an authentic Canadian countryside experience. I look forward to hosting your group on your visit to the Greater Vancouver area!" –Phil . ---------- Phil has been hosting multiple vacation rentals for more than 5 years, and is active with the VRBO/Homeaway community.

Why Phil chose Langley
The relaxing country bungalow sits on 10 acres of beautiful and peaceful country property, yet is only 15 minutes to downtown Langley, and only 45 minutes to Vancouver with quick access to the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1). The property is nestled among Fraser Valley's wineries and fruit orchards, where you can enjoy golfing, fishing, horseback riding & cycling. Shop farmers markets and antique shops, then try out the many artisan cafes & farm-to-table restaurants.
What makes this House unique

nice place and location
My sons and I rented this 2 bedroom property to do hockey camp and it worked fabulously. Phil the owner was very friendly. The house area was well decorated and very clean. Thank you!!!
Lovely setting for a Vancouver area visit
This rental was perfect for my friend and me. It was comfortable and quiet. We also enjoyed the beautiful country location, the nearby wineries, and close proximity to Fort Langley for dining and shopping. Phil was easily accessible and attentive. Thanks for a memorable experience.
Close to Thunderbird Show Park
We chose this home for its proximity to Thunderbird Show Park and it as perfect. We were away from home at the show most of the day and it was so nice to be close. The house is small and has a few quirks but it served our purpose well.
Country Woods Bungalow
Fantastic location to Thunderbird show grounds!
Thanks Valerie for staying again at our Country Woods Bungalow during your competition at Thunderbird Show Park just down the road. Hope to host you again at your next horse show!
Great place to relax after a long day
Fantastic accommodations, Phil is extremely thoughtful and ensured we were very comfortable during our stay. We will return!
Thanks Lori for the 5-star review! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at our Country Woods Bungalow. You guys were a treat to host!
Comfortable, clean, and quaint!
We would definitely stay here again, and also recommend the cottage to others.
Thanks Jennifer! Delighted that you both enjoyed your stay at our Country Woods Bungalow. The bottle of wine that you left for us was a wonderful surprise!
