About Gail Christianson

We are a professional couple in our early 60's with three grown children. We love to meet people from all over the world and strive to make our guests feel welcome while still giving them privacy. We will go the extra mile to ensure that our guests are comfortable in their surroundings, and are always on hand to provide suggestions and directions for sight seeing, restaurants, etc.

Why Gail Christianson chose West Vancouver

While centrally located, this property has the added benefit of being immersed in nature, with a bridge covered creek, towering trees, and walking trails right outside your back door.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique in its location, high atop a hill with stunning ocean views in Vancouver's most prestigious residentail area. You may see gorgeous sunrises to the east and stunning sunsets in the west all in the same day. Watch the cruise ships sail to Alaska in the summer while sitting at your table on the patio or relaxing in the back yard on the lounge chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was lovely a bit wet at times but, that is part of the charm of beautiful Vancouver. Gail was a great host very approachable and most accommodating. The only drawback was we needed more time to explore the many wonderful sites Vancouver has to offer. Maybe next time? Hope to visit Gail in her home again.

First class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home away from home when we visit our family in Vancouver. This is a cheerful, light filled suite with gorgeous views in a quiet residential area in Luxurious West Vancouver. Gail provides a warm personal welcome and the suite is well equipped to make our stay very comfortable.

Great views and comfortable home for 2 families.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a good place that was close to the skiing hills in Vancouver & whistler and still have the option of going to Vancouver for short trips. Gail's property was perfect. 15 mins from everything in Vancouver and also cypress / grouse. And 1.5 hours from Whistler. The home was also fully furnished and had plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen was perfect, the fire place kept us warm throughout the stay.

Great views, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Gail and Brian's place. The views were unbeatable, amenities many, property clean and comfortable, and location great for exploring the many sites. We were able to hike some local trails that started right out the back door. The hosts were welcoming and responsive to a couple of questions during our time there. Highly recommended!

A kind and generous landlady with a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A nice and cozy place to stay. Well decorated with a beautiful view and neighborhood.

Our needs were available and transportation was easily in reach. And more important of all was a caring and modest landlady who gave us a high degree of attention and respect.

West Van House

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Brian and Gail. This house has beautiful views of both the ocean and the mountains. There is a lovely porch area. This home is situated among some of the finest homes in West Vancouver, and is spotlessly clean!

Our hosts provided everything we needed, lots of towels, shampoos, etc. plus they are very accommodating, friendly and fun.

Close to all sightseeing, a great place to stay! The location is an easy drive to Whistler, Squamish, Grouse Mountain, Horseshoe Bay.
