About our home

Our warm and lovingly renovated West Coast family home is a great choice for you to experience Vancouver and the surrounding area. There are three bedrooms upstairs (two for kids, and the master bedroom) and one bedroom downstairs. There are two bathrooms (one with a deep bathtub) upstairs, a large open kitchen that looks out on to a green space with creek, open dining area, and living room/TV area. There is a large children's play area (with lots of toys, books in English and French, and board games) and second TV area with video game consoles downstairs.

We have high speed Wifi, Netflix, Amazon Prime, a PS4, a Wii, and an old school Nintendo. Our home sits on a private green belt with a creek running below. When you open the master bedroom doors at night you can fall asleep to the sounds of nature. In the evening you can relax and enjoy dinner on the back deck with a cool breeze coming up from the creek as the sun will have moved to the front.

We are a 10 minute drive to two beautiful lakes (Sasamat Lake and Buntzen Lake), walking distance to trails, a five minute walk to an outdoor pool, many parks (Town Center Park/Lafrage Lake, Rocky Point Park) and close to shops and public transit which makes it easy to access downtown Vancouver in 30 minutes.

We are very open to trading vehicles - our Tesla Model 3 that seats five for your vehicle!

We would be happy to help you plan your trip, and suggest places to see and things to do if you needed.

Cleaner available every two weeks if you wanted, and we could suggest a very trustworthy French/English speaking babysitter if you were interested.

More about us

  1. We are a professional family of four - mom, dad, and two children ages 8 & 10.. Mom is a French Immersion teacher for grade 9 & 10, and dad works in the film industry.

  2. We enjoy biking, hiking, swimming, skiing, camping, museums, music, and exploring. Anything that involves being outdoors!

  3. Now that the children are older we would like to travel more and explore new countries! As mom is a teacher, the best time for us to travel is during the summer months of July and August, although two weeks during winter vacation might be possible also.
