Grand yet cozy

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time at Serenity! The location is outstanding - breathtaking! Even in the rain, the view offers constant mesmerizing entertainment. Sunsets are not to be missed!

The home is actually bigger than the photos indicate- we never ran out of space. The master bedroom is massive and luxurious. The main floor bedrooms are average size and of equal quality, however, the downstairs bedrooms are more sparse in furniture and atmosphere. The one large basement bedroom with two queen beds does not have a window and can get quite warm.

It was awesome to be able to fit all 10 of us on the sofas surrounding the massive stone fireplace, and still have a huge loft space as a separate rec area.

Wayne the owner was exceptional in his communication - very responsive, pleasant, and clear. We encountered some maintenance/housekeeping issues, which we alerted him to and he seemed intent on having them taken care of. With these in mind, we are very likely to book again!

Great house with a great view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Serenity for 2 nights for a work retreat. The open plan living/ kitchen and upstairs family room were perfect for cooking/relaxing and working. The views are amazing. We walked to the beach one day and grabbed coffees at the general store . The kitchen is well stocked. The owner was very responsive. Thanks Wayne!

About Wayne Chan

Our family stays in 'Serenity' every year as our vacation home. We both have our own businesses and with triplets, we stay busy. So when we decide to take a break, just knowing that we have the home in Lions Bay is amazing. We absolutely love staying there. I've never seen a view as spectacular as the one that we have right on our deck. It's just a terrific place.

Why Wayne Chan chose Lions Bay

Several years ago, I had come to Vancouver just to look at some properties with the possibility of finding a place a year or so down the road. We already knew that we loved Vancouver but we weren't quite ready to get a place.

But when we saw this home, we just couldn't pass it up. As I said before, I had never seen a view as spectacular as the one at this home. So, we decided to just go ahead and do it!

Map

Car: necessary

Twenty minutes north of downtown Vancouver and less than an hour from the world famous resort of Whistler. Lions Bay is a beautiful community overlooking breathtaking views of Howe Sound. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the community's own private beach club, or take a short drive to Stanley Park and bike along the seawall.

Whether you decide to shop at the upscale shops along Robson Street, take a picturesque ride up a sky tram to Grouse Mountain, lounge in the hot tub overlooking the ocean, or play a game of pool in the game room, Vancouver has something for everyone, and 'Serenity' in Lions Bay is the perfect place to stay no matter how busy or relaxed your stay will be.

Other Activities: boating

We definitely want all our guests to have a great time when they stay with Serenity. The only thing we ask is that all guests treat the home with the respect they would have for their own. 99% of all our guests have been wonderful, but on a couple of occasions, guests decided to have blow out parties into the night, damaging the home and disturbing our nice neighbors. No wild parties!
