About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 (+)

Nestled in the Fraser River highlands of greater Vancouver, this spacious family home on one acre provides privacy and comfort only 30 min from downtown Vancouver. It's also close to the Thunderbird Equestrian Centre in Langley (20 min), White Rock Beach (30 min), Softball City (30 min) and Golden Ears Provincial Park (25 min).

This vacation rental unit offers approx. 3200 sg. ft. on two floors. There is a caretaker on site in a basement apartment not visible from the street. This home has a huge yard, gardens, playground, and over 800 sq ft of outdoor deck space for relaxing in the sun/shade. The Stanley Park like setting and green belt provides almost complete privacy. This home away from home has, gas stove, wifi, gas fireplaces, BBQ, 1 king bed, 2 queens, 2 sets of bunk beds, 1 single bed, 1 Race Car bed, and 1 double futon. Max 10 - some exceptions.

Very close to the Fraser River, and major motorways into the city of Vancouver, Airport , and Ferry. This central location is about 30 minutes from our famous North Shore Mountains, White Rock Beach, Golden Ears Provincial Park, Fraser River Salmon Fishing, Rogers Arena, and Granville Island. Only a few minutes away you can find major shopping centres like Guildford Mall and Surrey Place Mall, the Colossus Cineplex, or sporting events at the Langley Events Centre.

From this Fraser Heights location, you get a peek at the majestic Golden Ear Mountains, or you'll maybe see some of the eagles flying over head. As you relax in the secluded back yard, maybe enjoy a game of Bocci, or perhaps just sit back in the gazebo and read a good book. It's very peaceful and relaxing, and a great place to stay!

About Ray & Lisa

We fell in love with this quiet street and neighbourhood long before we bought the property and built the house. Our kids loved the forest and open field, and we loved the privacy and quiet. We loved seeing the eagles and owls and deer. We were able to build in 2010, and it's a place our family loves to stay and live in the off season.

Ray & Lisa purchased this house in 2005

This home is located in an ideal setting, surrounded by nature. The home is spacious and bright and can accommodate a large family quite nicely. I would highly recommend this home, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house was comfortable and spacious. Plenty of together and separate areas.

  • 5 of 5

Many different ways to enjoy the lovely weather. The kids’ favorite part of the trip was coming back at night to bounce on the trampoline. We played board games in the gazebo and took advantage of the grill and outdoor seating. The house was in a wonderful location - close enough to enjoy downtown but out of the bustle of the big city for a quiet retreat. The grocery store and several restaurants were within 5- 10 minutes drive allowing for different options. The house was clean and well stocked with toiletries and dish/laundry supplies.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

All my family son and daughter and grandchildren stayed here. The home is spacious and beautiful. My youngest grandchildren loved the backyard play area.I was very impressed with this location and very close to attractions in Vancouver. It would be good to have more or larger trash can. All in all a great place to stay.

Wonderful house.

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderful for kids and adults. We loved the area and the yard as well. Lisa and her husband were very nice and we enjoyed working with them to rent their home. Photos of the family around the house were an added bonus as we love the Dynamics of their family. They choose to adopt and it is also a big part of our family. I would have to say that they may need to find better house keepers, as the floors were not clean. Swept, but not mopped and with babies on the ground we found ourselves mopping.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to everyone.

Lovely property. Great for families.

  • 4 of 5

Creekside Nature Retreat is a lovely property and perfect for families of all ages. It was easy to find and is located near Vancouver as well as other surrounding attractions (lakes, tennis, parks, etc). The home and yard is spacious and is geared for children from young to late teens. We had two families in the home with children ranging from 7-19 years for total of 9 people and had room to spare. When we were at the home there was something for everyone (games, outdoor trampoline, soccer balls, movies, etc). The owners were extremely helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area and also welcoming with leaving a nice gift basket and welcome note. Lisa was responsive to all questions anytime I asked. Overall, it was a lovely and relaxing place to stay and I would recommend it as a vacation rental!

Wonderful Family Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our three grown sons and their wives and our three young grandchildren stayed at Creekside Nature Retreat for a family vacation for a week in July. The place was beautiful and spacious, and very child-friendly, which we really appreciated with the small children in our group. Ray and Lisa were so accommodating regarding providing extra cribs, high chairs, etc. Having a lovely yard and playground for the children to play in was an added bonus. It was convenient to several attractions which we visited, and it was so nice to have such a lovely home base to come back to after our outings. We highly recommend this place as a vacation rental.
