About the Property
House, five Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths rents weekly for Summer 2017
wooden deck between the house and the water for a post swim warm-up or evening soak watching the sunset. We are a 12 minute walk to Deep Cove Village with many shops, restaurants, galleries, coffee houses and other commeriial uses.
The home itself is ideally situated to capture the beauty of its setting. Each of its three stories have many windows and decks facing the water where guests enjoy morning coffee or tea while watching kayaks and sailboats and power yachts pass by.
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. Like all homes in this area, the property is forested by cedars and deciduous trees and sits at the base of the Mt. Seymour vast forest full of trails and wildlife.
This home has had extensive upgrades and remodeling over the last five years. It is now available for weekly rental in summer and monthly, or longer periods by agreement of season. It is a NON SMOKING house in a quiet area. We prefer to limit the group size to 10 or 12 including children, and welcome families especially. 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 separately (l bedrm/2 bath, small kitchen) w/ separate entry. Sleeps 5. Inquire for rate.
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 to 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,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 + second bath
Entire floor remodeled in 2015 with added bath and complete "entertainment' kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave, counter bar).There is another complete and separate bath on that level as well for use by 2nd floor bedroom guests.
The home also has a playpen/baby bed if needed, but does not have a full size crib. A high chair also will be supplied if needed on request.. We have 3 high, comfortable easy to inflate single mattresses w/ pumps as well for children or adult use.
(a) one-half bath on top floor;
(b) one shared complete bathroom on the middle floor (with combined jetted tub and shower);
(c) one en-suite bathroom attached to master bedroom on middle floor, with triple-headed shower;

(f) pool table;
(g) large flat screen TV on upper level, with smaller TV on lower level, both with cable + one in lower bedroom
(h) board games, books, and cards for cozy nights at home.

All standard cooking equipment and platters, etc. Stainless refrigerator + dishwasher, all customary small appliances, and barbeque on upper deck available year round.

You will enjoy it in any season.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The property is owned by a Canadian Corporation owned in turn by the owner, Jean Zlotkin, and is rented periodically when not used by family. For 2017 there is a long term rental in place through May 30th and the summer months are open for weekly rentals from mid June to Mid September. It is not currently available the rest of the year. The owner and family live in California and purchased this home for later retirement.
Why the Owner Chose Deep Cove (North Vancouver, British Columbia, 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.
