Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We truly enjoyed staying here, in this charming old house. Loved the outdoor area with fire pit and great view. We spent several evenings outside by the fire. This place was perfect for us. Not too far (40 min) from Squamish, and only 15 minutes to Vancouver. Whytecliff park nearby, and nice dining in Horseshoe bay, 3 minutes away.

We stayed at Helena's home for 5 days in February. The home is in a beautiful residential area just a few minutes away from Horseshoe Bay. The view from the home is spectacular.

Cozy stay in West Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Our family came up to visit friends in Vancouver over the American Thanksgiving holiday and chose this property based on the proximity to aforementioned friends and the reasonable price based on similar listings. It was cozy and suited our needs perfectly, especially being that Helena permitted us to bring our small dog. The home had a fenced yard which was wonderful for the dog and kids, as well as gorgeous views to be had from certain rooms. There was plenty of space for our family and the proximity to Horseshoe Bay and Squamish couldn’t be better. We did quite a bit of cooking in the home during our stay and fortunately the kitchen was relatively well stocked with spices and most basic items. (Although I was never able to find measuring cups and spoons so that would be my one suggestion) Helena was helpful and easy to work with and gave us a thorough tour upon initially arriving which we appreciated. Overall, we had a lovely experience staying at the home and look forward to returning during the summer when we can take full advantage of the beautiful and ample outdoor spaces that the home offers.

Wonderful place for small family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

This home is cozy and comfy. The kitchen is well equipped. The owner's preparations for our stay enhanced our experience. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood. The weather affected our choices of activities, but we were able to make daily excursions into Vancouver. We would definitely return to this home.

Fantastic Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 absolutely loved our stay here. It was comfortable, spacious and had a great view. It's a very quiet neighborhood which allows you to enjoy the FOUR different sitting areas outside the house. This house offers you the best of both worlds. It offers peace and quiet, but is just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver when you want to get busy. It was very central to all the places we visited like Capilano, Whistler, Stanley Park. Lots of great restaurants a very short drive away.

The other very important factor is that the owner is an absolute delight. She is very helpful, accommodating and responds quickly to requests. It made the whole event very easy for us.

Should we be going back to Vancouver again we won't bother looking for any other place as we would rent this house again.

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks with my husband, two kids (10 and 6 years old) and my mother-in-law. The house was great! The beds were comfortable. The house was very well equiped. The area was very quite and we enjoyed sitting mostly outside enjoying the sunsets, the views, and all the different birds that flew in the garden, including several hummingbirds. The house was very airy and bright. Helene gave us a warm welcome and was very attentive to our needs. The house is in a good location close to the ferries and just a walk away from Horseshoe Bay and very easy to get to the highway to go to either Whistler or main part of Vancouver. Yet you are away from the hustle and bustle.

Great vacation rental for the whole family :)

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who needed a rental while our home was undergoing renovations and we were lucky to have found this beautiful gem. We were very impressed with the gorgeous views from the property. The home is warm and very cozy with ample space for us all. I would recommend all who want a refreshing and peaceful stay to rent this home. Helena is a gracious host who goes out of her way to make you feel taken care of and at home. The home is situated near the Horseshoe Bay ferries and there are restaurants and places to eat. The only issue I would bring up is the lack of storage space for clothes and food. Because you are renting a lived in home, the is very little storage room to unpack into. The cozy stay and amazing views make up for lack of space to unpack into. If you are as lucky as we were, you may even be visited by a family of friendly raccoons.
