North Vancouver is one of the most beautiful places in the world to visit. We have the good fortune to live here and would love to share our home with world travelers.
Our home is a Mid Century Modern Rancher with a separate ground level two story suite for visitors. It is a total of 770 sq ft of modern comfort. Ideal for a small family.
The suite faces south into our beautiful garden. The main living area provides a simple galley style kitchen, modern dining space, comfortable lounge area with sectional for cuddling with a new flatscreen TV including full cable and Netflix. A gas fireplace provides warmth and coziness for our cooler evenings.
There is small ipod speaker for music plus reading material and games for the kids.
We have a basket of crafts and coloring books too for a quiet evening.
Upstairs we provide a lovely sanctuary in which to relax. Our upper level has a one very large bedroom with two queen size platform beds. There is an additional studio attached with a modern desk, internet access and a beautiful corner reading nook. A yoga mat and props plus a small altar add to the calm of this space for yoga and meditation.
On the lower level there is a modern washroom with a soaker tub and shower plus heated slate floors. A sliding closet hides a stackable Bosch washer and dryer for your use.
We have all the extra touches available for your stay including the use of tennis rackets and picnic baskets and blankets.
We love animals and have a small Australian Labradoodle, Mollie, who is very sweet and friendly.
Our neighborhood is incredible. The streets meander up the mountain side and trails connect all the lovely parks and villages. The Westcoast Rainforest is green all year round.
A short five minute walk takes you to Edgemont Village where you will find cafes, butcher shops, grocery shops, a bakery, our local bookstore, BC Playthings, Giftworks, clothing boutiques and much more. Services in our village range from a walk-in medical clinic to massage therapists.
Head in the other direction and you will find one of the North Shores most beautiful family parks. Murdo Fraser park has a new playground for the kids, new tennis courts, walking trails, a duck pond, and a wonderful 9 hole pitch n putt golf course.
We are located only 20 minutes from the gondola to Grouse Mountain and 5 minutes from Capilano Suspension Bridge. Bus stops are close by if you do not have a car.
Within walking distance we also have our new Delbrook Community Recreation and Art Centre. There is a wonderful pool for the family and a terrific weight room for adults.
Park Royal Village is our largest shopping centre with a wonderful selection of stores including Whole Foods Market and Simons.
We have made a book of places to visit on the North Shore and in Vancouver. The list is long and includes great places for kids to enjoy. The Vancouver Aquarium, Science World, Granville Island, plus all our amazing outdoor kayaking to skiing.
Our small family lives right next door. We are friendly as is our adorable furry pup. I am a professional Interior Designer and At Home from my kitchen table. We have two wonderful school age children (our boy is 13 and our girl is 10). We come from diverse backgrounds having built our family through adoption.
We ourselves love to travel and use VRBO and Airbnb of all our trips. It is a wonderful way to truly experience a new city and new country. Live like a local.
We are quiet friendly folk who have been blessed with this amazing neighborhood and community.
We would love to share it with you during your travels.
