Rivermyst~ Private Deluxe 2 bedroom suite

Bedrooms 2
Space sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Clean, bright and private 2 bedroom bottom floor suite. EVERYBODY is welcome.

NOTE: Prices shown are in U.S.DOLLARS ,we apologize for any inconvenience but this is beyond our control. This is not a "whole house" rental. This listing is for a clean, modern and recently updated bottom floor suite. Rivermyst has it's own entrance and occupies the entire bottom floor of our home. - Surrounded by pristine wilderness it's easy to forget you're still in a suburban neighborhood and only minutes away from shops and dining. You'll enjoy complete privacy in your fully furnished two bedroom getaway suite where the only disruption to serenity may be the sound of rushing water from Mashiter Creek in the canyon below you.

Your home away from home features a roomy, updated and fully equipped galley kitchen with seating for six.

In the bright foyer area there is a washer and dryer along with a coat rack and a bench to seat yourself while taking your shoes off.

The master bedroom features a queen size bed, hanging closet and bureau, across the hall you'll find a second bedroom with two single beds. If more sleeping space is required extra matresses are available for "floor camping".

The sunken living room is a great spot to sit by the fire and read a good book or watch a movie; warmed by a gas fireplace there's a flatscreen television, dvd player and audio system as well as Wii and PS2 gaming systems and a selection of family friendly DVD movies for your enjoyment.

We're 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.

If you're an outdoor enthusiast we can also provide secure storage for all your gear.

Squamish itself has plenty of great restaurants and attractions like the brand new Sea to Sky Gondola or the West Coast Heritage Railway Museum. Get all the information you need at the Squamish Adventure Centre (it's the stunning cedar and glass pavillion you passed at the entrance to Squamish). They can provide maps of actvity locations, trail maps and more.

There are plenty of easy daytrips a short drive from Squamish. Scenic Bowen Island is a quick ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay (leave your car at the ferry terminal and cross as a foot passenger). Whistler Blackcomb with its activities, shopping and world class dining is a 35 minute drive north of Rivermyst.

Vancouver and all it has to offer is a 50 minute drive south, be sure to visit Robson Street, Stanley Park and Granville Island!

We very much look forward to your stay and if we can provide any further information on your accomodations or the surrounding area, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We hope to see you soon!

About Laura

We're travellers too. We travel as a family and have frequently used owner operated accomodations in places like London, Berlin, France, the south of Spain and San Francisco. There's nothing quite like living like a local and getting to explore a new part of the world at your own pace.

We're avid boaters and members of the local yacht club. Having owned several sail and powerboats we enjoy cruising B.C.s Gulf Islands in our vintage Grand Banks 42.

Laura is a school trustee and also works in administration at the regional health board. Boyd is a veteran of the Vancouver film and television industry and works as a graphic and design specialist. We have two daughters who are now attending college and we've enjoyed the experience of hosting international exchange students from all parts of the globe over the past fifteen years. Many of these students have become like family members during their stay with us and have come back for frequent visits.

Laura purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Laura chose British Columbia Mountains

We moved from Vancouver to Squamish as an ideal environment to raise our children. It's a place that really has a sense of community and has retained its small town feel despite being situated halfway between British Columbia's biggest city and North America's premier ski resort. For anybody that is attracted to the great outdoors, this place is incredible!

What makes this apartment unique

Our log home is unique in the area in that is at the very top of a culdesac 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!

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.
