White Rock house description
Welcome to our beach house! You are steps away from the ocean, hiking/biking trails, parks and a cozy little village of shops and cafes. Crescent Beach is ideal for a family getaway. We spend our summers here and then make our house available to other people for the rest of the year. We're sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
The house sleeps 6, with 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, and covers 2,050 square feet over two floors
MAIN FLOOR: The spacious foyer has french doors, a coat closet, tile floor and a powder room. The large (20' x 15') living room has a gas fireplace and french doors opening onto a private patio. It has a 42' TV with home theatre system. The separate dining room is adjacent to the living room. The modern kitchen has a breakfast nook and all appliances (including our favourite... the garburetor). There is also a multi-purpose room with a utility closet that could serve as an office, den, sewing room or even a 4th bedroom.
UPSTAIRS: We have 3 large bedrooms, all with ample storage space. The master is 19' x 14' and has an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and balcony. The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds and 2 closets. The 3rd bedroom has a double murphy bed and a walk-in closet. The main upstairs bathroom has a large tub and a separate shower and large tub. The bright open hallway overlooks the front hall and dining room.
The house has a 2-car garage, alarm system, built-in vacuum and washer/dryer.
The yard has recently been re-landscaped and provides lots of play space.
Rent includes all utilities including power, water, phone, cable and internet. We're happy to structure this differently for longer term rentals.

In All Ways: Fabulous!
In All Ways: Fabulous!
Crescent Beach is an ideal little get away from it all and the Armstrong house is just the place to stay to do it! The house had a perfect layout for our two families. Plenty of private space and plenty of bathrooms. Also a well laid out kitchen/living/dining that serves as a great shared space for in home meals, card/game night, hot tubbing or BBQ. I highly recommend for families with teens or kids old enough to go out on their own. The world is their safe little oyster here. Great trails for bike riding almost at your door step. The beach is a half a block away and we had a beautiful swim in the Sound. We took a day trip both to White Rock and then to Vancouver for Dim Sum and Stanley Park. The location of the house is just the best. The yard is fenced so we set up horseshoes and the Armstrongs provided outdoor games and bikes for small children as well. I could go on and on. My advice is to just go there as soon as you can! Great restauants in walking distance, don't forget the gelato............

This is a lovely home nestled in a unique beach town. Very short walk to beach. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood, yet easy access to the city life and many tourist attractions. We would do it again!

Cozy Beach Vacation Home
Cozy Beach Vacation Home
This vacation home works well for family gatherings and comfortably sleeps 6 people. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped to handle full meal preparations. Many sets of dishes and cutlery meant that we could load a full dishwasher before running out of dishes. We spent most of our time in the living and dining room, because those spaces had the combination of intimate and cozy (living room with lower ceiling and fire place) as well as light and open (dining room with clerestory windows and high ceiling). The owners were gracious and made sure that the place was readied for our arrival. New carpet meant that the house looked better than advertised, and so soft underfoot. We would have given the unit 5 stars had it not been for the inability to control the thermostat. The owners were prompt in responding to this concern and provided a temporary fix. I imagine that by the time this review is posted, the problem will already be fixed. As for its location, the house is literally half a block from Crescent Beach. A couple of blocks in the other direction was a trail leading to what looks like the Southern edge of the bird sanctuary. Small shops along Beecher were within a five minute drive away. There were good recommendations in the guest book, such as Wired Monk coffee shop. Great place to stay for a beach holiday.

Beautiful well maintained home, with terrific location close to beach, walking, cycling and within easy driving access of Vancouver. The house more than met our expectations and the information booklet provided by the owner was extremely helpful in locating restaurants, grocery stores etc. Full garage made traveling with our bicycles a breeze. Would definitely recommend.

About: Hi! We are a family of five and this is our summer house. We spend July and August at Crescent Beach every year and we rent this house out for the remaining 10 months. When we're not at Crescent Bewach, we live 30 minutes away - so we are able to get to the house quickly if you need any help.
Why White Rock:
Crescent Beach is a unique community. It's a bit like the land that time forgot. It has all the appeal of a small village by the sea; but you are only a short drive from everything the big city offers. And this house is ideally situated - you are one block from the beach and some of the nicest walking, jogging, bike riding and sunsets you've ever seen.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One block from the beach. PERFECT for families.
