About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The property is in Vancouver Heights (NW corner of Burnaby). From the property, there are fantastic views from Stanley Park and Vancouver harbour in the west to the North Shore Mountains and Indian Arm in the east. It's a 15 minute drive to a number of great spots including the heart of downtown Vancouver, the foot of Grouse, Cypress or Seymour Mountains, and the sandy beaches of Barnet Marine park. This is a great location!

The neighborhood is known for its wonderful delis, coffee shops, and restaurants of every ethnicity.

There is a marine park right below the property offering miles of jogging and hiking trails that reach into Burnaby Mountain to the east, and the waterfront and city to the west. It's easy to get to the top of Burnaby Mountain, the home of Simon Fraser University, with lots of great recreational opportunities and classes found there. The North Shore Mountains - Grouse, Seymour and Cypress - present multiple down-hill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing options in the winter, and hiking trails, wildlife reserves, restaurants and picnic areas in the summer all with stunning views of the lower mainland.

Parks in the neighbourhood include a large park above the property with tennis courts, climbing apparatus for kids, and a soccer field, and a larger park called Confederation (2 minute drive away) with a full-sized jogging/walking track, climbing apparatus and water park for kids, picnic tables, etc. Its adjacent to Eileen Daily Indoor Leisure Center (pools, steam room, exercise classes, weight training facilities).

Public bus transportation is a 5 minute walk from the property.

Below the track is the Burnaby Central Railway operated by a BC Engineers association taking families on miniature train rides through the forested area (summer).

The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds are a 3 minute drive away and offer Playland (family amusement park), Hastings Horse Racing Track (spring and summer) and the Pacific National Exhibition in the last 2 weeks of August. Check out the PNE site online for many other activities and events hosted there, and for their farmer's market days.

Close by is the New Brighton beach park and outdoor swimming pool - great for a swim and afternoon picnic....There is so much to explore in this neighbourhood!

Just so there are no the back of the house, under the living-room, dining-room, my husband and I have a suite. We park in the back, come and go through the back into our own entrance - there is no shared entrance with guests. We are completely separate. Our guests don't 'see' us unless they need something :)

About Sean

My family was in the harbor-tour business for many years. We really enjoyed taking visitors out cruising in Vancouver harbour and beyond - experiencing the mountain, ocean and city views from the water. Its familiar but different now - welcoming visitors to enjoy the 'views' - this time from the 'Heights'.

Sean purchased this house in 1987

Why Sean chose Vancouver Coast & Mountains

Aside from the convenience to so many great recreational and cultural venues, the specialness of this property is it's unbelievably great, ever changing, mountain and harbour view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ranking: 5 stars

Stayed: September 29, 2012 till October 5, 2012

Our family had an excellent vacation staying at this wonderful place for a week. This was the perfect place for our family of two grandparents, three adults, and a young toddler. The house was spacious, spotless, very comfortable, and well supplied. We absolutely loved the location of this house, especially the gorgeous views of the mountains and the harbor from the dining room and upstairs bedrooms.

Our family also loved this quiet residential area, good parking spot in front of the house for our rental van, short walking distance to a nearby park, easy access to public transportation, 5 minutes drive to Safe Way, bakeries, fruit markets, cafes and numerous restaurants.

Thank you Wayne for your great suggestions on the restaurants, especially the Italian and Japanese places. It was so relaxing eating late night dinners with delicious take outs from the nearby restaurants, nice and quiet with our baby already in bed upstairs, while enjoying the amazing million dollars view from your dinner room. Thank you Sean for providing the baby gates, the Pack and Play, the high chair, the basket of children books and toys, and especially the three vases of beautiful fresh cut flowers for the welcoming touch. Both of you were so friendly, caring, helpful, and had made us feel so welcomed. It was a truly a home away from home vacation experience. We would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Vancouver, especially family with children.

Perfect for our family of 7.

  • 5 of 5

The view is awesome. The towels and sheets were fluffy. The basic essentials were all stocked. A quiet yard area added to the charm of the unit along with the beautiful flowers and fresh fig tree. This is about 20 to 30 minutes from downtown. Our family was not ready to leave. I would definitely stay here again

This place was a great location, we loved it! Sometimes the pictures are better than in person, this was not the case. We were blown away when we got there. Sean and Wayne were great, lots of helpful tips and recommendations. I would recommend this and will be going back for sure!

Perfect location and house for our group

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for 3 teenagers, my sister and I. We only stayed 3 days as we were heading to Vancouver Island for a wedding, but we wish we could have stayed longer. The house was fully stocked, clean and comfortable. We ate out on the deck when we were home and we ran every day on the Trans Canada trail which is only a few minutes away. There is also a lovely park nearby. Sean and Wayne were the best hosts--letting us know where to rent bikes near Stanley Park and that we should visit Lynn Canyon (which was gorgeous). We would definitely stay here again (and longer).
