Great location, awesome view

  • 4 of 5

Greg and Kathryn were wonderful hosts and available to deal with minor issues as they came up, always willing to answer questions about the Deep Cove area. It was an easy walk to the village which we did often. The Quarry Rock hike is a must and it is not far to Lynn Canyon for another day of excellent hiking and exploring. SUP and kayak rentals are easy. We also rented a pontoon boat for a cruise up to the end of Indian Arm, swimming off the boat, checking out the beautiful sites, and watching seals.

Modern appliances in the kitchen made it very functional and the beds were comfortable. We would return for another holiday.

The view is spectacular and eating outside on the deck was a favourite thing to do.

This is a nice house in a beautiful location north of Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

It's easy to drive into Vancouver (20 minutes). Deep Cove itself is attractive for a quiet day and hiking opportunities are within reach (Grouse Mtn). The house is homey and comfortable and has plenty of deck space to enjoy the beautiful view. Sleeping arrangements felt a bit tight for 6 adults and 3 eleven-to seventeen-year-old girls, but living space is generous and there are plenty of bathrooms. We would definitely return.

A Perfect Spot in Deep Cove - Lovely Home and Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this vacation home. It felt homey yet luxurious at the same time. The views were incredible and with three balconies, we spent a lot of time taking the view in. There is a table outside to enjoy meals on the balcony.

The house was clean and spacious and comfortably fit our extended family with a second living area downstairs. The CD collection was a pleasant surprise for us offering entertainment while cooking and enjoying family time.

The location is perfect as hiking to Quarry Rock is right out the backdoor and it is just a short walk to the heart of Deep Cove. Not to mention a short drive to Vancouver.

To top it off, my family in the midst of our vacation left some items (even some money) which the owners of the home made sure we got back. Their honesty and willingness to help us out in our time of need really stuck with me. They are genuinely good people who really care about the people who stay in their home.

You can't go wrong with this place!

North Vancouver home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Aardevin recently. This is a lovely, roomy and comfortable home. The views of the Deep Cove and its marina were beautiful. After a busy day of sightseeing in Vancouver, it was the perfect place to escape the frenzy of the city and recharge for the next day’s activities. The extensive DVD collection was a pleasant and welcome surprise. There is a very nice, very close and well maintained hiking trail which leads through a beautiful forest to an outlook over the cove. We really enjoyed the coffee shop, the ice cream parlor, the waterfront, the little art gallery (got a couple of souvenirs there) and Arm’s Reach restaurant in the idyllic little burg of Deep Cove. And of course- Vancouver was awesome.
