Property description

If you are coming to the West Coast for Pleasure or Business you will find The Steveston Garden Suite is your home away from home.

You will find the suite completely furnished with high end furnishings and a modern new kitchen where you can prepare your meals. Shared laundry room for your convenience. The suite overlooks a large, north-facing patio where you can relax and enjoy a coffee in the private garden and in the evening enjoy sitting in the hot tub under the stars. Whether your stay is in Vancouver or en-route to Whistler, Blackcomb, or Victoria on Vancouver Island, make your home away home base in this fantastic well located suite in Vancouver's best kept secret Steveston Village!

Tall Ships to Shore 2015

Richmond is a Port of Call for the World's Classic Tall Ships
Maritime Heritage

A century ago, the biggest and fastest sailing ships from all over the world came to Steveston's bustling Cannery Row in Richmond to load much desired cargos of Pacific salmon for international markets. Today, Richmond's Steveston Harbour remains Western Canada's largest commercial fishing port. It is also home to several significant maritime heritage sites, including two national historic sites, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, and the Britannia Shipyards, National Historic Site.
The City of Richmond celebrates its maritime heritage, through a number of special events, including visits by some of the world's great tall ships, festivals and maritime heritage restoration and preservation projects and programs.

Annual Richmond Maritime Festival
August 8-9, 2015
This celebration of maritime heritage, arts and culture has been a popular annual event since its inaugural launch in August 2004 at Britannia Shipyards, National Historic Site.

A tribute to wooden boats and other classic ships, the event features unique and historic vessels, live entertainment, maritime-related displays and interactive activities for all ages. Visit www.richmondmaritimefestival.ca

We are conveniently located, 10 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport and Canada Line (Transit), Buses are just out front of our house, 20 minutes from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal to the Islands, 30 minutes to downtown Vancouver, 30 minutes to U.S. Border.

Whether for business or pleasure, Steveston Garden Suite is centrally located to allow for quick and easy trips to your favorite destination or pastime. Whale watching, biking, fishing, golf, sailing, kayaking, wineries, tennis and many more activities are easy to find in the summer. Plus, you are less than an hour from skiing and snowboarding at Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour in the winter.

Welcome to historic Steveston Village! We are located across the street from the Gulf of Georgia Cannery a National Historic Heritage site that documents the history of the Salmon canning industry that flourished on the south arm of the Fraser river in the 19th century and shipped canned salmon around the world.

We are a block and a half east of Garry Point park that sees the Fraser empty out to meet the Gulf of Georgia...next stop Vancouver Island.

The West Dyke trail begins and will take you on a leisurely walk or bike ride to the North Arm of the Fraser where you can watch the planes take off from Vancouver International Airport or you can continue on and circumnavigate Lulu Island (Richmond).

Are you fans of ABC's series Once Upon a Time then you will want to visit here! Steveston Village is 'Storybrooke'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife and I enjoyed traveling in Paris last year and now we want to explore more of Europe. We also have enjoyed working on our suite and had lots of fun decorating and getting it ready for VRBO. We ask all our guests to treat our home with respect and to keep it clean for everyone to be able to enjoy. Please return the clean, clean up after yourself. I put my heart into my suite because this is what I would like to have when I go away on holidays! I have to say I have stayed at different VRBO's where some owners took pride in their suites and it showed able to enjoy! by how it was cared for and others where they didn't care. We take pride in out suite and look forward to making new friends like we have already from Germany, Australia, Montreal, and from our trip to Paris last year we met more great friends by staying at their VRBRO in Paris! and we look forward to going back for another visit! We also have a lovely family upstairs that helps us with the suite and guests if you have any immediate concerns they are very happy to help as well! They also love the experience of meeting new friends!

Why the Owner Chose Richmond:
Steveston Village is in Richmond and is known to be a quaint village and is Vancouvers best kept Secret in the city. We are close to the Vancouver International Airport, Transit at your doorstep easy access from/to Airport, Downtown, Highways, Ferries, US Border, Historic Sites, Beaches, Parks, Sports etc... The village is an escape from the fast pace of the city and you will find lots of history here.
