About our home

Enjoy a uniquely Canadian vacation in our modern log home. Perched cliffside above Mashiter Creek in complete privacy it's easy to forget you're still in a suburban neighborhood just minutes away from shops and dining in town centre. We're located in Garibaldi Highlands, a hillside community within Squamish, British Columbia. Squamish is located midway between Whistler Blackcomb (35 minute drive) and Vancouver (45 minute drive). Both are an easy drive along the spectacular Sea to Sky Highway; included in our exchange is a winter prepared AWD Volvo XC90 with ski rack.
Vancouver and Whistler certainly don't need much of an introduction but for a glimpse of what Squamish has to offer see here...www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRRdprf6B-U (copy + paste to your browser) for a broader view of our region see here...www.vimeo.com/76166406 (copy+ paste to your browser) and just for good measure, here's Whistler Blackcomb's site address www.whistlerblackcomb.com (copy+paste to your browser)
Our home features a large mastersuite with it's own washroom on the uppermost floor, the main floor has the kitchen and dining area, living room with a two storey gas fireplace as well as two smaller bedrooms, laundry facilities and another full washroom. The lowermost floor of the house has a second full kitchen, two bedrooms, full washroom, laundry and television room with another gas fireplace. This would give potential home-swap guests the option of sharing the house with another family while maintaining privacy. Any questions, please don't hesitate to send us a message!
Squamish is one of the New York Times top destinations for 2015 http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/01/11/travel/52-places-to-go-in-2015.html?_r=4
