                                Stayed here for six nights as part of a three week tour of the BC. What a place to start our adventures. We all loved the stay and would certainly return. The views from the apartment are extreamlybspecial, make sure you keep an eye out for the seals... My son and I enjoyed the Kayacks and giggled trying tomget in them... Dad got a tad wet!! Elaine and Tony were really helpful with the local walks and resturants. Would reccconemd the hike down to Deep Cove (Bayden Powell trail) followed by coffee and doughnuts in Honeys.

                                Owner response: Thank you for the 5 star review! This is a very special area with plenty to look at a plenty to do. You can be busy all day hiking, biking, kayaking, golfing and skiing or you can plant yourself on the deck and watch what is happening on the water. Either way there is always lots to see and do.

                                We truly enjoyed our stay at this unique home right on the water on Indian Arm. Even the drive to the house was an adventure. Our hosts had great suggestions for local places to visit and we enjoyed the kayaks daily. We enjoyed the upstairs bedroom retreat and our 3 teenagers were comfortable on the rock bed and the futon. Beautiful and peaceful place.

Everyone who comes to visit loves having the kayaks and the dock and the rock bed is always the bed that gets first dibs because it is so unique. The unit is perfect for families as it is spacious and allows you to cook your own meals. Hope to see you our way again sometime.

                                The location of the apartment at Indian Arm is a little piece of heaven. Serene and picturesque, you feel distant from the metropolis of Vancouver, but in reality, it is a short drive into town. Tony and Elaine were lovely and approachable, offering advice on dining and local attractions. The apartment is comfortable and private, even though the owners live above (it has it's own private entrance). Waking up and walking down the private dock to paddle along Indian Arm (in kayaks provided by the hosts) can't be beaten.

Hope to visit you at your beautiful Providence Restaurant in L.A. and that you come back and visit us. We enjoyed having you. Kindest regards, Elaine Minichiello.

                                Recently stayed with the Minchiello's at their beautiful suite RIGHT on the water and enjoyed our time immensely. The setting, scenery and the serenity were just what we were looking for in a weekend stay, and the kayaks were an added bonus (use them if you go!). Thanks to Elaine and Tony for their hospitality and for sharing their little piece of heaven with us. Best thing I can say is that we look forward to returning again! Thanks so much!

                                Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the great review! What is so great about this place is that it feels like you are in the wilderness yet you are only 25 minutes to the heart of downtown Vancouver. Indian Arm is a magical place that is caught between 2 worlds, the rich culture of the city of Vancouver and the culture of the out door adventurers who love to hike, ski, snowshoe, kayak, mountain bike, scuba dive, swim and revel in all that Indian Arm and Mount Seymour has to offer.

                                It was so nice meeting you. We enjoyed our visit at your little piece of paradise. The perfect place to re energize and relax. We loved it all, the kayaking, diving and flipping off the diving board, hiking and most of all relaxing. the views are stunning. Wish we lived closer so we could return soon.

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About the owner: Elaine and Tony have been married for 20 years and have 2 grown children. Elaine is originally from Halifax and lived on the ocean on St Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia. Tony is a city boy born and raised in Vancouver. Together they did an extensive renovation on the property after it was sold to them by the Rubbermaid heiress who moved on to build on Cortes Island.

                              Why the Owner Chose Other Vancouver Properties:
                              We both really wanted to be on the water and because we could not move to Nova Scotia because of Tony's work we set out to find a waterfront home close to downtown Vancouver and found it on Indian Arm, North Vancouver.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              The best part about staying here is the deck and the dock! There is a gazebo with a tabletop heater so you can sit outside in all weather. Gas for Heater and bar bq provided. When you are in the kitchen it feels like you are on top of the water. The apartment is very spacious and has lots of extras like the kayaks, life jackets as well as countless Vanity Fair and Vogue magazines. We are happy to show you how to use the boats and to show you the trails on Mt Seymour. West Coast photographer, Andy Chamberlayne's, work is featured throughout the apartment. I honestly do not think you will find a nicer place.
