Our house is located on a quiet suburban street in North Vancouver and is just a few minutes drive away from everything you could want to do and see in Vancouver. It is large (3600 sq ft), well-furnished and has all the modern conveniences. It includes a family room, dining room, kitchen, powder room, 4 bedrooms (1 ideal for baby/toddler), 2 full ensuite bathrooms, office (wireless internet) and large back garden. Welcome to use barbecue, patio furniture, 2 mountain bikes. Car exchange also possible (car recommended).
Our neighbourhood is quiet and is close to all amenities although a car is required. We live a short car ride away from the Canadian wilderness and if you love to hike or bike, there are many trails close by at the local mountains (Grouse, Seymour, Cypress, Lynn Canyon). Whistler is a 1 hour drive away - be prepared for stunning views! Vancouver Island is worth a trip, just a short ferry ride away. Much to explore there - we highly recommend a whale watching tour. The city centre itself is a 15 minute drive away and has much to offer, with shopping and excellent restaurants as well as tourist attractions such as the world-renowned Stanley Park (fun to rent a bike and children love the aquarium), Granville Island with its fresh food market and English Bay. You can even rent a boat in Coal Harbour for the day!
We are a young professional couple with a 16 month old son. I am a solicitor (originally from UK) and my husband (Canadian) is a financial consultant and owns his own business. I speak some French and German. We love to travel and have recently been to Hawaii, Spain, Croatia, Venice and UK. We have 1 cat, Ollie, who is very gentle and quite timid until he gets to know you. He is very independent and has a cat door which means he is very easy to care for - just needs watering and feeding once a day!
