About Rose Grypma

We are a young family, with our friend who enjoy the great outdoors.

We love to get away to Hope to enjoy the lake in the summer, and hit up Manning Park slopes in the winter.

Rose Grypma purchased this house in 2016

Why Rose Grypma chose Hope

We have a young family, and sometimes its nice to be able to get out of town for a vacation and relax that's only an hour away.

What makes this house unique

The area is hidden gem!

Amazing Getaway in a Beautiful Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a getaway with beautiful Lake Kawkawa just a stones throw away. The home is very well cared for and well stocked! The living room is very large and inviting for movie nights or just hanging out with the friends and family! We felt right at home in the property it has a very warm and welcoming feel with large windows that let in lots of sunlight and provide beautiful views of the mountains and trees. We enjoyed our evenings on the large deck out back with drinks and BBQ's after spending afternoons at the lake. The owners were very accommodating and quick to answer any questions we had. We loved the short drive (under 2 hours) from Vancouver to this slice of heaven in Hope. This property MUST STAY whether it's for a week or a quick weekend get away.

Squeeky Clean, beautiful lake down the path

  • 5 of 5

We were nervous to book as this was a newer listing on VRBO without a review yet, but so happy we did. It felt like brand new construction and everything worked great. Showers were hot, WiFi speedy, kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, etc. Only thing we couldn't find were the oars for the boat. Overall, a great experience.

Although we did not meet Rose in person, we had a nice telephone conversation and I could tell she was a very good and reasonable person. The house is truly lovely and sits on a cul de sac in a nice quiet neighborhood . Had the weather been nicer we would have enjoyed the evenings on her large back deck overlooking the Lake. The kitchen was very well stocked. The beds comfortable. The house itself was clean and roomy.

Hope is a wonderful unknown getaway.

Within minutes you can be, wakeboarding, water skiing, paddle boarding, fishing, mountain biking, hiking. The local atmosphere is very family orientated with lots of kid friendly activities, the lake, beach and boat launch is only 20 meters from the house.

If your a history buff (railroad)- a trip to the Othello tunnels in the Coquihalla Canyon National Park is just a senic 10 minute drive away.

Tons of out door activities to keep you busy and out of trouble from basking in the sun, fishing on shore, learning to waterski, white water rafting & the list goes on.

Hope has facilities for kids from skating to a swim at the aquatic center.

There are great restaurants near by.

Great local artists.

All the shopping necessities needed.

And best of all.... Peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life.

A place where you can truly sit back, relax, and enjoy nature at it's finest.

Hope awaits.
