Five bedroom waterfront home in Deep Cove on Vancouver's Indian Arm saltwater inlet, 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver. This beautiful vacation residence is bordered on the west by a year round creek. The property has a private dock, rocky beach, and garden area. Additionally, it has a large heated jacuzzi/hot-tub built into a wooden deck between the house and the water.
The home itself is ideally situated to capture the beauty of its setting. Each of its three stories have many windows that look out on the inlet outside. Each story also boasts a cedar deck, where you can enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sunrise.
The residence has a reverse layout with a top floor entrance into the living, kitchen and dining areas, which open onto a panoramic e/s/w view. Visible from the property are both Deep Cove marinas, coastal mountains and islets, and the lights of Port Coquitlan and Burnaby in the distance. Tidal changes are up to twelve feet here and crabs can be caught right off the dock. The house is very private and feels as though you're 'away from it all,' yet it's only 20 km from downtown Vancouver. Families traveling together will find this spot a refreshing and private escape in all seasons. Like all homes in this area, the property is forested by cedars and deciduous trees.
This home has had extensive upgrades and remodeling over the last five years. It is now available for weekly, monthly, or longer periods by agreement (it is otherwise used as the family's vacation home). We are not renting for shorter stays than one week except 'off season' and then to families or businesses and not for 'event' (parties, etc) use. It is a NON SMOKING house in a quiet area. We prefer to limit the group size to 10 or 12 including children. Property usage is intended for registered guests for the most part (e.g., a few local friends/family/business retreat members visiting is fine but no large parties or events or celebrations with visitors not on the contract unless with owner's prior permission). NOTE: This is not a 'formal' house in terms of dining table with leaves, matching chairs beyond six, etc. It is as depicted in the photos. We do have a table extension in matching wood to seat 10. We have a large outdoor fold up table and 10 folding chairs for evenings on the deck. Off season we also can rent the lower floor on weekly or monthly basis as stand alone suite/apartment w/ separate entry.
Residential neighborhood “quiet hours” are observed before 9 a.m. and after 9 p.m. daily. At the street level there is a garage and parking for 1 other vehicle. We also have a pass for parking on the road which is otherwise restricted so 3 cars MAX in your party. The home is a 12 minute walk to the Deep Cove village along Panorama Drive (where the Baden/Powell trail from Mt. Seymour area ends), as well as to the local kayak center and two marinas. Street parking is also available for additional cars and visitors w/o charge or time limits. NOTE: ambulatory abilities are necessary, as the house has extensive stairs, and there are no lifts on any level. This is NOT a 'child safe' house in that there are open stairwells, exposed plugs, wiring, etc. so renters must strictly supervise young children in and out.
The four bedrooms on the middle level of the house include:
(a) master bedroom with private inlet-facing deck, king-sized bed, a movable single bed, and en-suite bath;
(b) creek-side bedroom with small creek-facing deck and private entrance and queen-sized bed;
(c) creek-side bedroom with queen-sized bed;
(d) bedroom with double bed.
(e) Lower floor: queen bedroom w/ ensuite bath (2015)

The lower floor is being currently remodeled in 2015 and will be ready for rental again May, 2015. We'll have a new entertainment kitchen, as well, and extra oven + refrig.

children or adult use.

You will enjoy it in any season.

There are table covers and liners, however, to make a table for 10 if guests use the small folding tables and a board over them to add height.

About the owner: This residence is owned by a Californian couple and is used as a vacation residence for themselves and friends and family. Due to work, distance and travel, we are only there part time so we have decided to share our home with people from other areas who will enjoy and care for it. We have great neighbors in Deep Cove and are renting to visiting families traveling together as well as to businesses for retreats and meetings. we do not do rentals at present for events, bachelor parties, social gatherings, etc. (parking and noise issues) and we ask that the principal (signing) renter be age 35 or older. Well supervised children are welcome and animals are possible with approval and deposit.
Why the Owner Chose Deep Cove (North Vancouver, BC, Canada):
We looked at all kinds of properties once we decided that the Greater Vancouver area was where we wanted to spend much of our leisure time. We wanted to have ocean access easily (we boat and swim), privacy, feel connected to the Pacific Northwest forest, and have all the urban excitement and amenities of a great city. Deep Cove proved to be the unique answer for all our desires.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very few places can offer the amenities of this home: a private dock for lounging, a hot tub where you can enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets, or warm up after a swim off the private dock; a regulation pool table for entertainment and glorious views. AND…in winter… proximity to great winter sports area and l.5 hours to Whistler... plus three 'local' ski areas within 1/2 hour.
