About Joel Gibson

Both my wife and I are educators and enjoy spending time with our 2 boys and baby girl. We live a healthy, busy active lifestyle.

Joel Gibson purchased this house in 2006

Why Joel Gibson chose Vancouver Coast & Mountains

Private home nestled in the mountains yet only 15min from downtown Vancouver. We love this area because my wife grew up here as a child and we want our kids to do the same

What makes this house unique

Central air conditioning and a crystal clear river to swim in steps away on hot days.

Absolutely an amazing place, perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. When we arrived it was clean and organized and the directions to operate everything were easy and clear. The house was full of things for the kids to play with with a big back yard to run around in.

The home layout was great with lots of space.

The owners were very kind, and helpful in suggesting places around the property to go to.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking in the vancouver area. 5+ stars from myself and my whole family!!

Great location... Great house

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Vancouver and the house was perfect for our family of 6. Lots of space for everyone to come together or find quiet.

Make sure you get to Deep Cove it's a great town and perfect place for sea kayaking.

Easy access from house to downtown Vancouver, grouse mountain, Stanley Park. Close grocery and superstore made getting what we needed very easy.

Highly recommended.

Great house and yard in a nice location.

  • 5 of 5

I've used Homeaway a lot and this house is in my top 5. My granddaughter felt right at home with the wonderful playroom and yard. The kitchen is well supplied (great spice/seasoning selection). Ample room for 5 adults. If we come back to Vancouver, I'd definitely rent this house again.

Nicely apportioned home with plenty or space for everyone. Quite neighborhood with friendly people out and about. Cooling off in the nearby river is a great way end a summer day.

Excellent location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we had more time than 5 days because we really enjoyed this house and location. Owners had all info needed in a book they had set up. Only thing I would say is we needed a little more info regarding the recycling as it is different than the province we live in. It was all well equipped and a gray joy to be there. The outside eating area was superb!!!
