About the Property

Apartment, 2 loft style Bedrooms, 1 bath/ steam ocean front views of Indian Arm

The Canadian rate is between 220 and 240 a night. You can convert currency on the rates page.
This fabulous luxury waterfront apartment on Indian Arm in North Vancouver is just 25 minutes from beautiful downtown Vancouver, the cleanest most beautiful city in the world!
Located on Indian Arm, a 10,000 year old fiord in a West Coast rain forest, the community of Woodlands is one of Vancouver's best kept secrets. It is a community of waterfront homes accessed by a country road which winds its way through the forests of Mt. Seymour which is famous for its snowshoeing, skiing, golfing, hiking, and mountain biking, so don't forget your bike!
There is an 80 foot cement deck with gazebo and bar-b-q which is attached to a 50 foot dock, perfect for sunbathing. Watch seals, seabirds, yachts, and fish boats make their way up Indian Arm to the beautiful Wigwam Inn, a private yatch club with a scandalous past! Across from the Wigwam is the majestic Granite Falls Marine Park.
Bring your scuba gear as there is excellent diving right out the front door! Kayaks are available free of charge. Spend an afternoon exploring the many marine parks home to black bears, bald eagles, and two salmon runs a year. Power boat rentals are available at Seycove Marina in Deep Cove.
The picturesque village of Deep Cove is just around the corner! It is home to beautiful gift shops and restaurants as well as the famous hike to Quarry Rock and Bayden Powel Trail. The Seymour Art Gallery, Shaw Theatre, Northlands Golf Course, Seycove Marina Boat Rentals, Arm Reach Bistro, Parkgate Community Centre and Library are all close by. Come and experience waterfront living at its finest!! 5 day minimum in July and August. Most suitable for 2 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. One queen bed, 1 double and one convertible bed. Beginning in March 2016 construction of a home 2 doors over and 60 feet above will commence. The district of North Vancouver has strict construction and noise bylaws. No work on Sundays or holidays and no work before 7 or after 5. Most people are so busy exploring Vancouver, hiking and kayaking that it should not be an issue. For those wishing to book we are offering a 100.00 Canadian dollar refund upon check out to compensate for any noise that may occur for those staying 7 nights and is valid until June 1 2017. This is such a lovely area it would be a shame to miss out due to noise that may or may not be happening. 4 night minimum over Christmas Holidays and March break.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Elaine and Tony have been married for 20 years and have 2 grown children. Elaine is originally from Halifax and lived on the ocean on St Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia. Tony is a city boy born and raised in Vancouver. Together they did an extensive renovation on the property after it was sold to them by the Rubbermaid heiress who moved on to build on Cortes Island.

Why the Owner Chose North Vancouver, BC, Canada:
We both really wanted to be on the wate because we could not move to Nova Scotia because of Tony's work. We set out to find a waterfront home close to downtown Vancouver and found it on Indian Arm, North Vancouver.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The best part about staying here is the view as well as the deck and the dock! There is also a gazebo and barbq The apartment feels like you are on top of the water. The apartment is very spacious and comes with lots of extras like the kayaks, life jackets as well as countless books, magazines and a few children's books and toys such as lego. We are happy to show you how to use the boats and to show you the trails on Mt Seymour. West Coast photographer, Andy Chamberlayne's, work is featured throughout the apartment. I honestly do not think you will find a nicer place in Vancouver and it is affordable for families.
