Burnaby house description

As travelers ourselves my wife and I have been renting out our Heritage House Garden suite since 2009. Over that time we have had the great pleasure of hosting folks from around the world. We have made some great friends and always look forward to adding a new visitor to our world map which shows where all our visitors have come from. Vancouver as you well know if one of the most awesome cities in the world. We hosted the 2010 Winter games which put us on the map. If you are a sports fan our Vancouver Whitecaps Soccer team has just entered the MLS and they play just a few blocks from our house in BC Place. As a hockey fan you will be able to see our Vancouver Canucks, Junior Hockey is just a few blocks away where you can you watch our Vancouver Giants. If you are a music fan Vancouver hosts the annual Vancouver Folk Festival in July, and the Burnaby Blues Festival in August as well as our International Jazz Festival in late June and early July. Add to that numerous arts and music festivals throughout the lower mainland. Just want to wallow in nature. From the 'heights' you will see three major ski mountains - Mount Seymour, Cypress Mountain and Grouse and a bit further away is Whistler, voted number one ski resort in North American many years in a row and the major venue for the 2010 Olympics along with Cypress Mountain. Hiking, boating, sailing, bicycling, eating, drinking, dancing, running, playing, partying. Vancouver has it all. Stay with a couple who has lived in Vancouver for many years and can point you in the direction of many activities that only the locals know.

Keywords: Our home is a main floor garden suite in one of Vancouver's most beautiful neighborhoods. Conveniently close to all of Vancouver's tourist sites. Mountain and Ocean views with all the amenities of a great neighborhood. Close to 'little Italy' with great restaurants, coffee shops and markets. Swimming pools, community center, library, transit connections, parks and walking trails all close by.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1992

              About the owner: My wife and I have traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia and Europe as well as North and Central America. I am in the import furniture business and am also a travel photographer. We enjoy meeting new travellers and exchanging information and stories of our travels. We have a large family who also enjoy travelling and when younger were always treking along at our side. I am a aspiring musician who when I have guests tries really hard to keep down the sounds of my guitar. We are avid music fans and attend many music events in the Vancouver and whenever we travel. Your suite will be furnished with my photographs as well as some furniture and decorative items from our travels.

              Why the Owner Chose Burnaby:
              If you would like to stay in one of Vancouver's nicest and most treed neighborhoods as well as relax in our oasis of a backyard and avoid the buzz of the big city and the generic hotel scene this might be your place. Even though we are just across the border into Burnaby we are closer to most major lower mainland sites than staying in Vancouver. Google us and you will see our great location.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              When you stay in our Heritage Garden Suite you will be able to experience the west coast lifestyle. Close to the mountains, hiking and biking trails, the ocean and all the amenities it provides. Just minutes from your home you will find great coffee shops, numerous ethnic restaurants, pubs, sporting facilities, parks, swimming pools and all the things you would expect of a great neighborhood.
