About our home

Our home is Pacific style; open floor plan with lots of sun light through many large windows. The spacious house is on 3 levels on a sunny southwest facing slope 10 min walk down to the beach. We are about 15 kilometer from downtown at the edge of town on the way to Whistler. We are on the mountain slope with fantastic views over the water and back to town with decks on 2 levels. One can hike directly into the mountains. In winter the Olympic Alpine sky area is a 15 minute drive uphill. A shopping center is a 5 minutes walk where one can also take the bus to downtown. We are a few minutes drive below a motorway in Caulfeild which is one of the most affluent subburbs in Canada. We are about 1.30 hours drive to Whistler and 2 hour drive to Seattle.
