About Caroline Plantz

We have lived in Langley all of our lives and moved to this property in 1997. It proved to be a wonderful place to raise our family and we continue to enjoy the quite serenity of the neighbourhood. My Husband and I both work in the construction industry so designing and building a carriage house was right up our alley. We have enjoyed Vacation Rentals and loved meeting people from across this continent as well as Europe.

Caroline Plantz purchased this studio in 2011

Why Caroline Plantz chose Langley

We love the diversity of a hobby farm. The large Maple tree as well as the many cedar trees add to the calming serenity of the location ... and of course the year round pond. We love to watch the many birds that use our piece of Langley as their sanctuary.

Great vacation rental

We loved this carriage house suite. We felt so comfortable. We were moving into the area and was a perfect place to stay while doing so. Caroline and Larry are great people and were very helpful to us. We would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much.

The perfect get-away.

  • 5 of 5

We adored staying at Otter Lane! Lovely carriage house design..private, beautiful gardens, inviting patio and deck, classy decor and design. Extremely well stocked, so warm and inviting - Caroline and Larry are the most wonderful hosts. Lovely country setting. So laid back and relaxing, wine tours in the area. A short drive over to the ocean in White Rock, the Canadian/US border or to Historical Fort Langley for a great day of sight seeing, strolling around downtown. Truly stellar place to stay....one couldn't ask for anything more! Cheers..

warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Otter Lane in August. After a warm welcome we say the beautifull and clean studio and fellt at home. All you need was there. A good and complete kitchen, nice furniture, a good bed, and a nice bathroom. We are a couple from Holland and we had a good time. Lanley is also a perfect location for making daytrips, to Vancouver, to the shore, to the USA, the mountains etc. We stayed a week and we will come back someday. Rob and Nanda from The Netherlands

A Perfect Retreat to kick back & relax.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Otter Lane twice now and will go back in the future. The property offers a wonderful pond and a variety of vegetations that are great for birds. There are also several other locations within 15 minutes for walking and hiking it makes it a great location to base yourself from for a few days. A few locations close by are Aldergrove Lake, Brydons Lagoon and Campbell Valley Regional park which are all great spots for a walk or birding. You are also only 10 minutes from the US border and about 25 minutes to White rock via 0 avenue. Every thing that Otter Lane offers you makes you just wish you could stay longer. A great place to stay.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here very recently (for the second time). It is a short drive from our children's very crowded home so a perfect spot to relax after busy days with the kids AND much nicer than staying in a hotel!

The unit is as described, well maintained and outfitted and the owners are friendly and accomodating. Our children are moving away from the area but if they return we would definitely stay here again.
