Rivermyst~ Peace, privacy and luxury.

Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Spacious, private & fully renovated 2 bedroom patio suite. EVERYONE is welcome!

Discover a little taste of luxury surrounded by nature! Rivermyst is a thoughtful blend of rustic charm and modern convenience - a newly renovated two-bedroom suite measuring over 1200 square feet, occupying the entire lower floor of our log home. It offers exceptional privacy, including its own entrance and a private patio area. Surrounded by pristine wilderness it's easy to forget you're still in a suburban neighborhood and only minutes away from shops and dining. The only things you hear are birdsong and the sound of rushing water from Mashiter Creek in the canyon below.

INSIDE – Tastefully furnished with everything you could possibly need. The large sunken living room features a river rock gas fireplace, full audio/video system, plus a wide selection of DVD movies, audio CDs and board games for your enjoyment. The modern kitchen comes fully equipped for real cooking and seats 6 in the built-in eating area. There is lots of storage throughout the suite, plus your own in suite laundry area with full size washer and dryer. We can also provide secure space for all your outdoor gear/bikes. The spacious private patio with wooden decking, BBQ and gas fire bowl looks directly into the trees and mountains beyond.

CLOSE BY - Located at the top of the Garibaldi Highlands area of Squamish, right in the middle of some of the best hiking and cycling trails on Earth. There is a trailhead 20 feet from our property that connects you to the entire network! And yet it’s all only a 5 minute drive to numerous local shops and restaurants and a 10 minute drive to Downtown.

Squamish itself has plenty of attractions like the Sea to Sky Gondola, the Stawamus Chief and the West Coast Heritage Railway Museum. The local dining scene is expanding monthly and there are also now three microbreweries in town. Feel free to ask us for our recommendations. We like food!

SURROUNDING AREA - There are lots of easy daytrips from Rivermyst. Scenic Bowen Island is a quick ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. Whistler Blackcomb for world class skiing, shopping and dining is a 35 minute drive north. Vancouver is a 50 minute drive south and is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rivermyst soon!

NOTE: Prices shown are in U.S.DOLLARS - we apologize for any inconvenience but this is beyond our control.

About Natasha

Natasha and her husband Duncan are very excited to have made Squamish, and a beautiful log house, their home. Natasha was born in Kenya, moved to BC as a teenager and has since lived, worked and travelled all over the world. Duncan was born in BC, grew up in the UK and returned home to Vancouver more than 20 years ago. With them both working from home more lately, the move from Vancouver to Squamish became a reality. They love to hike with their two rescue dogs, Biscuit and Kirby, and every day brings new discoveries! Both Natasha and Duncan have spent their entire professional lives in customer service and client care, so they are thrilled to share Rivermyst with guests from near and far and are determined to ensure a truly exceptional experience is had by all!

What makes this apartment unique

Our log home is unique in the area in that is at the very top of a cul-de-sac and is surrounded on three sides by protected, wilderness forest which means your stay will be completely private and peaceful. You'll be just steps away from world class mountain biking and hiking; all this while still being close to town.

30 somethings escape to Rivermyst!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 professionals in our 30's enjoying a weekend in Squamish! The night we arrived we enjoyed a home cooked meal at Rivermyst! The kitchen and dining area is very user friendly and welcoming! We than retired to the living area to chill in front of the fire...it's so comfortable and warm! At no time did the 6 of us feel like we were tripping over one another...Rivermyst is very spacious and well thought out! We did travel in two cars...one parked in the driveway in the space provided and the other parked on the street with no trouble given the snow banks! Thank you Laura for your warm welcome...we hope to come back!

Wonderful place

We loved staying at Rivermyst. The space was quite beautiful, comfortable, very clean, warm and had everything we needed. It was in a nice, quiet, family neighborhood and close to many wonderful restaurants and shops. The setting is beautiful fresh and enchanting. I highly recommend it.

Snowboarding trip to Whistler

  • 5 of 5

Rivermyst was amazing! My girlfriend and I absolutely loved every aspect of Rivermyst. The exterior and interior of the space was really cool and you could hear the river outside from the balcony. The only downside was was spent most of our time in the area at Whistler, a 40 minute drive away. We had a short trip and would absolutely stay here again if we get the chance. This place is perfect!

Such a beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the weekend to we could trek to Whistler to enjoy some snowshoeing. Laura and Boyd were such gracious hosts. We experienced a freak snowstorm that dropped several feet of snow. They were up every morning to shovel the driveway.

Meanwhile, their space was amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. If you do not want to drive to Whistler during the winter season and try to navigate the Sea to Sky highway, you should stay here at take the Greyhound to Whistler.

great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location in Squamish, BC. The forest views from the living room were amazing. The two bedroom suite was clean and had all the comforts of home. The bedrooms were a good size, but would have preferred an end table in the bedroom with two single beds, and mirrors in both bedrooms. Due to the raining weather, we were not able to enjoy the patio area, but it would be nice place to relax and enjoy the view during warm weather.
