“Sally's house was very comfortable, and in a great location. There is so much to do within walking or biking distance, and with a convenient bus stop nearby, we barely moved our van, except to explore some of the further Vancouver locations on the North Store [even these are easily accessible by public transportation if desired]. Sally was a great host - the house was well set up for guests, instructions were clear, plenty of recommendations on where to go and what to see, etc. This swap surpassed our expectations and we give it our highest recommendation.”

The living area on the main floor is made up of a kitchen, formal dining room, lounge and a family room. We have a self contained suite (1 bedroom) which was completely renovated in 2010. The suite has a fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, bedroom and bathroom. The home is an ideal base to explore all that beautiful British Columbia has to offer!
We are an active adventure loving family. We have bicycles of all shapes and sizes for you to use in the surrounding parks and forests. If a winter vacation is what you are looking for then skiing on the north shore mountains is easy to do. Cypress, Seymour and Grouse mountain are all close by. The ski slopes lights can be seen from the master bedroom window.
