About Iva Dietrich
My husband, 2 kids and I are an active family that enjoy the outdoors! We love Vancouver and have lots of great ideas of what to see and do (but only if you ask, we respect your privacy too).
Iva Dietrich purchased this House in 2007
Why Iva Dietrich chose Upper Lonsdale
The best part about this property is that you are only 20 minutes away from the city and yet when you are here you feel away from it all. It's a peaceful, tranquil, natural setting!
What makes this House unique
The view is spectacular! From your own private deck, you will enjoy views of the city, Lions Gate bridge, and the mountains on Vancouver Island. Every sunset is unique! It's a photographer's delight!

Super view and fantastic location
We stayed one week at this spacious, bright and clean apartment which overlooks the city of Vancouver and parts of Vancouver island. The view was fantastic as well as its location in a quiet residential neighborhood close to hiking paths, Grouse mountain and other attractions in nature. In spite of that, it's only a 10 minute car ride to Lonsdale Quai where the seabus departs for the city. Another huge plus was the communication with the landlords. Iva went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. She was very personable and had some great advice and sightseeing recommendations for us. We truly enjoyed our time at her place and can highly recommend it to anyone who likes the balance between sightseeing in a vibrant city and being close to nature at the same time.
We are always so thrilled when someone likes our place as much as we do.
Thank you for being such wonderful guests! We hope to see you again some time.
All the very best,
Iva & Steve
Between the sea and the mountain
Apartment very well located in a quiet dead end.
The view is just beautiful. The apartment is functional and fairly close to downtown Vancouver.
The family is very welcoming and gives very good advice when needed.
A wonderful place for a quiet and unforgettable holiday.
At first I would have to say that I was a bit hesitant due to the distance from the city, but after strolling through town, taking hikes right next door with a wonderful stream, my family was happy. We have two kids and they were in awe of the place. Iva, thank U.K. so much for making this place so family friendly and proving toys and games for the kids. The view is amazing and the area is peaceful we felt so relaxed. This place has everything you want and everything you need or want to visit on the north side( Capilano/ Lynn park) is five minutes away. If you want to go to the city, the ferry is the best way, which is a five minute drive to the terminal Can't wait to see this place in the winter.
Great for small families
This property was great for visiting with kids. My 3 year old daughter loved the toys in the toy closet, my 8 year old son loved the foosball table and the space to play in the yard. I enjoyed taking the kids on the trails in the woods next door, and my wife enjoyed sitting and looking at the million-dollar view of Lions Gate Bridge and Vancouver Harbor.
The listing is for what I'd call a Mother-in-law unit, a separate unit in the lower part of the main house. You do get a bit of everyday noise from the main house and while the unit does have heat we couldn't find any heating controls in the unit aside from a portable heater. We were glad we brought earplugs and sweaters, but we're light sleepers with early bedtimes and from a warm climate.
We had a great stay at Iva's place. We stayed three weeks with our kids, and the location was perfect for our adventures on the North Shore and in the Vancouver area.
The location at the top of the hill was near to many hiking trails and a short drive to the Sea Bus to go downtown. The drive to Cypress and Seymour for skiing was less than half an hour. The drive to Whistler was about an hour and a half.
Iva and Steve were great hosts. They respected our privacy and space, but were accommodating and helpful. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time here.One of the best things about having a vacation home is meeting great people like you. You are wonderful guests.All the best to you and your family. We hope you will come again! Iva and Steve
Amazing space. Highly recommended
The view from this unit is incredible, overlooking downtown with ocean views from the main living space and main bedroom. Very clean unit, with all the amenities needed. Outdoor space is an added bonus with chairs and couch to enjoy the views from the deck. Lastly, Iva and Steve are great owners and are available for any questions in regards to the Vancouver area. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet space in Vancouver
Mountain Top Holiday House is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in North Vancouver that is surrounded by nature. The home is located at the end of a cul de sac that leads to a park, creek, hiking and mountain biking trails. There are large cedar trees to east, Grouse Mountain to the north side and an ocean city/island view to the south and west. Although it is fairly close to many tourist attractions like Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension bridge and Londsdale Quay, a car is recommended for getting around easily. If however you are training for a bike race or triatholon this location is a perfect terrain for conditioning. Some of our guests have also used this peaceful setting as a yoga retreat. Whatever you want from your vacation, staying here will truly give you a British Columbia experience that you will enjoy and treasure! Other Activities: Grouse Grind
