About the Property

Character Home, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3) with Mountain and Ocean views.

As travelers ourselves my wife and I have been renting out our Heritage House Garden Suite since 2009. Over that time we have had the great pleasure of hosting folks from around the world. We have made some great friends and always look forward to adding a new visitor to our world map which shows where all our visitors have come from. Vancouver as you well know if one of the most awesome cities in the world. We hosted the 2010 Winter games which put us on the map. If you are a sports fan our Vancouver Whitecaps Soccer team has just entered the MLS and they play just next door from the Vancouver Canucks at BC Place. As a hockey fan you will be able to see our Vancouver Canucks. If you are a music fan Vancouver hosts the annual Vancouver Folk Festival in July, and the Burnaby Blues Festival in August as well as our International Jazz Festival in late June and early July. Add to that numerous arts and music festivals throughout the lower mainland. Just want to wallow in nature. From the "Heights" you will see three major ski mountains - Mount Seymour, Cypress Mountain and Grouse and a bit further away is Whistler, voted number one ski resort in North American many years in a row and the major venue for the 2010 Olympics along with Cypress Mountain. Hiking, boating, sailing, bicycling, eating, drinking, dancing, running, playing, partying. Vancouver has it all. Stay with a couple who has lived in Vancouver for many years and can point you in the direction of many activities that only the locals know.

Keywords: Our home is a main floor garden suite in one of Vancouver's most beautiful neighborhoods. Conveniently close to all of Vancouver's tourist sites. Mountain and Ocean views with all the amenities of a great neighborhood. Situated in 'little Italy' with great restaurants, coffee shops and markets. Swimming pools, community center, library, transit connections, parks and walking trails all close by.

Car: Recommended

Even though our home is physically in Burnaby we are only 4 houses away from the Vancouver border. You will be closer to many Vancouver locations than actually staying in Vancouver. Vancouver has some of the most spectacular scenery and outdoor activities in the world. You are only minutes away from 3 major ski hills. 25 minute away from the famous "Grouse Grind" Many of our guests have had the honor of completing this must do Vancouver activity. Nature abounds in our neighborhood with the Trans Canada trail just minutes from us. 1/2 block away is a great park with tennis courts and walking trails. The PNE "Pacific National Exhibition" grounds is a short walk and will give you the opportunity to ride one of the biggest wooden roller coasters in North America. Many restaurants dot the Heights with traditional to ethnic in abundance. Pretty well every ethnic food is represented within a short walk of our home. Sports, you can see BC place from our house. BC Lions for football and the Whitecaps for Soccer. Rogers Arena, next doors hosts the Vancouver Canucks. Just a walk down the hill and you will find Pacific Coliseum, old home of the Canucks and now the home of our Junior hockey team, the Giants. Downtown Vancouver with all its great clubs, restaurants and bars is just a short bus ride away. Burnaby hosts the Burnaby Blues Festival in August and of course we have the Vancouver Folk Festival in early July. A must for any music fan. The Squamish Music Festival and the Pemberton Festival are two of the top contemporary music festivals on the summer circuit. Looking for some Counter Culture. Main Street and The Drive are minutes away and offer great shopping, cool coffee shops and tons of awesome eats. Food trucks - just over the bridge to the Londale Quay for the Friday Nite Market, not to be missed. Deep Cove, a great destination and the setting for the TV drama series Cedar Cove. A must for sight seeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing. Harmony Arts Festival in August. Just over the bridge and down the highway to West Vancouver. And it goes on and on. Our guests who have stayed 2 weeks or more say they "ran out of time" My wife and I have lived here for over 25 years and have a very good handle of the vibe of the city. Please ask us and we will send you on to a truly unique adventure.
