About our home

Built in 2003 our home in North Vancouver, BC is architect designed. Enjoy the open floor plan and the many places to get away to when you want to relax, read or watch TV. If you enjoy cooking the spacious kitchen awaits. With a gas stove, stone counters, 4'x8' island and full size pantry it's a great entertainment/cooking space for friends and family. If outdoor cooking is your thing you can do it on the professional BBQ on the spacious and comfortably furnished back deck with a stunning view of the north shore mountains. Upstairs our home has three cozy bedrooms and two baths with heated stone floors.
We are centrally located on the north shore, just a 10 minute walk to the central Lonsdale shopping district, library, coffee emporiums, and many great restaurants. You may be tempted to spent your entire visit on the north shore since you'll never run out of things to do; Take your pick of miles of trails for walks or biking; enjoy the stunning and varied views from any of the three north shore mountains; visit the beach and ocean promenades or shops at Park Royal. You are also close to suspension bridges, eco ocean tours and fabulous winter skiing, all at your doorstep. But don't forget the city awaits. Just a 10 minute bus ride or 1/2 hour stroll down to the bottom of Lonsdale will bring you to Lonsdale Quay with it's wonderful food, shops and the 15 minute Sea Bus crossing to downtown Vancouver. Once you've enjoyed the Sea Bus ride with its fabulous view of the city stroll along the Vancouver sea wall through gorgeous Stanley Park to English Bay and famous Granville Island. There's plenty of dining along the way, Vancouver's dining is world class. Downtown entertainment is accessible and always exceptional. Summer fireworks at English Bay or winter sports, there is plenty for everyone.
