Squamish condo description

Welcome to our beautiful condo on the water located in Squamish, BC.

We started this vacation rental last summer and it has been very well received. A recent offer of sale on our condo made bookings temporarily unavailable. But due to circumstances, we are happy to offer it again as a home away from home.

We hope you find it as a welcoming and tranquil retreat for some rest and relaxation and a time to enjoy all the natural beauty and activities that this town-outdoor recreational capital of Canada- has to offer.

This condo is a two bedroom, two bathroom unit with a total of just over 1000 square feet of living space. Master bedroom has a relaxing queen sized bed. A comfortable sofa bed is located in this large room as well. The second bedroom includes a comfy double bed. There are extra foam mattresses in the closet to accommodate extra guests if necessary.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been recently renovated with newly refaced cabinets throughout complete with soft close hinges-no slamming! There is warm cork laminate flooring in kitchen, bathrooms and hall with comfortable neutral carpeting in bedrooms and living room. The master bathroom has a large shower and main bathroom has tub/shower combined. New washer and dryer complete this bathroom so you will always have clean clothes!

The kitchen features high end German quartz counter tops with stainless steel appliances completing the look. Let the dishwasher do your dishes if you so choose. Kitchen is fully equipped and has all the amenities you need (coffee maker, toaster, microwave, blender, dishes, cutlery) to make you truly feel you are in your home away from home. Bake muffins in the morning and enjoy them with your coffee on our waterfront ground level patio and take in the majestic views.

The dining area with seating for four is open concept to main living area with leather seating throughout. Bar island accommodates two extra seats. Enjoy the natural gas fireplace with a flick of a switch and enjoy a good movie or a favourite TV show on cable on the new flat screen HDTV.

Access to the ground level patio is from the living room. Just step outside and be prepared to be awe inspired by The Stawamus Chief (locally known as 'The Chief'). This is the second largest granite monolithic rock in the world, second to the Rock of Gibraltar. Enjoy the ocean breezes and fresh salt air and take in the sights of local birds and sailboats cruising by. There is a small grassy area to access in front of this patio too. If grilling is your thing, there is a gas barbecue to do the job.

Surfing the web is but a click away (or two) anywhere in the condo.

There is simply a multitude of activities to do in Squamish. Whether your into strolling around downtown taking in the local shops and restaurants (most within 5-10 minute walk away), kite boarding or kayaking in the Squamish ocean channels, fishing in the local rivers, oceans or lakes, mountain biking the extensive network of trails of renowned single track that knit the communities together or spidering up rock faces, Squamish offers a lot, for sure. It is a 20 walk to the smoke bluffs park or a 5 minute drive to the Chief parking lot. How about a hike up the Chief while your there? About a 3-4 hour return trip if you are leisurely hiking with the views from the top out of this world. Driving north on Highway 99 for 40 minutes will deliver you to the Whistler village Creekside gondola and driving south 40 minutes will bring you to downtown Vancouver.

If you feel you want to share your stay with your four-legged friends then they are more than welcome, provided they are house trained and well mannered. We can provide you with sitters or walkers to keep them happy with someone else too.

We have lived in Squamish for almost twenty years and know the community quite intimately. I am a local elementary teacher and have been teaching locally for 15 years. My husband, Pete, has worked as an electrician for Whistler/Blackcomb for over twenty years. Landing in Squamish was the second best thing that happened to us, the first best being our kids.

When you arrive we will provide you with a list of brochures to help you with choosing an activity or two and do our best to help you with any questions you may have. There is a large storage locker at the front of the condo for any toys/equipment you happen to bring with you and parking is just steps away. Just walk (or bike) right up to your front door. Come be our guests.

                  Squamish is known as the outdoor recreation capital of Canada owing to its numerous mountain biking, rock climbing and marine sports opportunities. Not only this, but it is located halfway between the ski resort village of Whistler and the world famous city of Vancouver. A short 40 minute drive in either direction on the Sea to Sky Highway (#99) will take you to either destination.

                  The condo itself is a waterfront, ground level unit located in downtown Squamish within walking distance of local shops and services.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I grew up in Prince George, BC, which is located in the middle of this beautiful province. I came to Squamish after completing my teacher training at the University of British Columbia in 1995. Pete came to B.C. in the early 90's from Ottawa and moved with me to Squamish in 1995. It's the mountains and ocean that drew us here and keeps us under its spell.

                  Why the Owner Chose Squamish:
                  We bought this property in Squamish so we could downsize and live in it while building our first home. Two new homes later, we still have managed to hold on to our condo, and now we would like to share her with people like you.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This condo has a special unique blend of Squamish charm: cool ocean breezes, majestic mountain landscapes, easy walking distance to quaint shops and markets, and easy ground level access.
