About Jill Hasman

We are an active family of five. We love to travel and cook, bike hike, swim and ski.

Jill Hasman purchased this house in 2011

Why Jill Hasman chose Vancouver

Vancouver is an incredible city. On some months of the year you can ski and suntan on the beach on the same day! The mountains are breathtaking, the landscaping lush. It is an awesome experience to run along the seawall by Jericho Beach at 6:30 in the morning and see eagles soar over your head while you take in the view of the mountains, the ocean, and the downtown. The restaurants are world class and we have many different choices to choose from - Japanese, Italian, Chinese, west coast cuisine, Spanish....

What makes this house unique

From the street, our home is unassuming. Walk through the front doors and you have a well built, quiet home with sun shining in the windows. Our backyard has sun til the sun goes down and the indoor pool opens up onto the deck. Our home offers privacy and seclusion in the center of the city. We have just completed a lovely renovation. The kitchen has high end appliances a chef would envy.

Amazing property not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

From the quick response for booking through our entire stay the owners are very responsive to questions and direction. Great location in an inviting neighborhood. All rooms well appointed and lovely. Our kids loved the pool and we enjoyed being able to open the sliding doors and sit outside while watching them swim. Gourmet kitchen is well equipped. this is truly a wonderful property!

Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Just spent Christmas in Vancouver ant the beautiful home of Andrew and Jill Haslam. It was as beautiful as it is advertised. The home is nicely located for access to downtown Vancouver, the Airport, banks, grocery store and shopping. The house itself is spectacular. Our family of 7, 3 adult children with 2 spouses, all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We used all the house has to offer; indoor pool, spa, living room with fireplace, 4 bedrooms all with ensuites, gourmet kitchen (son in law is a trained chef), main floor TV room, dining room table that doubled as a jigsaw puzzle table, professional size billiard table, dartboard, AND a comfortable theatre room with a 100" projection TV. The theatre room was probably the most popular. We also used some of the games, electronic, but didn't take full advantage of the bar......our own fault. Didn't use the back yard due to the poor weather, but it looked very comfortable as it overlooks the indoor pool.

The house itself was beautifully maintained, clean and everything worked, including both dishwashers. We were met by Jill's mother as the Haslams were gone for the holidays, but she explained everything that we needed to know.

The house is exactly as described, so we would recommend it to anyone looking for a luxury home for a short visit or long term use.

Beautiful home, well appointed, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family spent a wonderful week in August in this beautiful home. We were 7 adults and 4 children. The home was large and provided more than enough space for all of us. The interiors of the home are beautiful and very well appointed!

The children enjoyed swimming in the wonderful indoor pool which was heated. The jacuzzi was an added bonus. The televisions had access to Netflix and Apple TV which was also an added bonus for the kids.

The location of the home was perfect for our family. It was easily accessible to downtown Vancouver but close to all the wonderful restaurants in the suburbs (especially the abundant ethnic restaurants in the nearby neighborhoods).

The outdoor space was perfect for hanging out in the cool evenings and grilling on the barbecue.

Andrew was a pleasure to work with and easily accessible throughout our stay.

The only small negatives were 1) there was some problem with the AC which was fixed on our third day there but still didn't fully cool the house. Due to the wonderfully cool evenings and minimal mosquitoes, this wasn't a huge issue for us. Secondly, there were two rooms with king size beds and three rooms which had full size beds. The full size beds were a bit small for two adults but one adult and one child or two children would fit adequately in these beds.

Overall a fantastic property and we would definitely rent this again if/when we all return for another family vacation.

Immaculate, beautifully decorated spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations on all accounts. Andrew was very responsive throughout the booking process and our stay. The house was very clean and comfortable, the patio a delight with the added bonus of a lovely vegetable garden-thank you for the lettuce, tomatoes, strawberries, basil and peaches! The neighborhood was quiet, felt secure and we were minutes from the sites of downtown Vancouver. We enjoyed Queen Elizabeth Park on more than one occasion, an oasis very close by. Food supplies were easy to get at numerous nearby markets (Granville Island!) and the house was stocked with everything you might need. Thanks for the use of the bicycles, we enjoyed biking around the neighborhood. The pool was the crowning amenity, enjoyed by all. This house is extremely well maintained and the owners were a pleasure to work with. Our son lives and works in Vancouver and we would definitely hope to rent this property again on future visits. Thank you!

Great place to stay in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

Andrew & Jill's home was perfect for my family's visit to Vancouver! The house was very clean and had all the necessary amenities including ample towels (separate ones for the pool too!). The outdoor patio was lovely where we enjoyed great bbq meals! We could even take fruits & veggies & herbs from their beautiful garden. Andrew & Jill were also great, thoughtful hosts. Very responsive. Almost immediate replies via email. Hope to stay there again one day!

Beautiful Property....Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in Vancouver was our best family vacation ever. One of the reasons it was so great was this home. It is beautiful with large open spaces that have something for everyone. We enjoyed the pool, the movie theater, the outdoor seating areas and made some great meals in the gourmet kitchen. The home is stocked with everything from board games to XBox to linens! The home is close to many attractions. 15 minutes to the airport, Stanley Park, and other museums! We would love to stay there again!
