About our home

Our home is a bright and cozy 3 bedroom, 3-storey duplex with a big back yard facing a greenbelt and playground. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, 1 bedroom has a single/twin bed and the other bedroom has a baby crib. We have hardwood floors throughout the house, a nice sunny deck with BBQ and lots of kids toys/books and games for 1-5 year olds, as well as a newly remodeled playroom in the basement with a queen size pullout sofa bed. We have a well stocked kitchen with gas range, dishwasher, espresso maker and microwave and modern fridge/freezer. Our bathroom has a heated tile floor and deep tub for soaking in and we have a washer and dryer in the basement. We have wonderful friendly neighbours, and there are lots of young families in the neighbourhood. Canoe, kayak, bikes (full suspension mountain bikes and a variety of kid bikes), strollers (both single and double chariots which can attach to bikes) and car seats are available for use. We have a 2004 4x4 Toyota Rav 4 which seats 5 people that would also be available for use. Our home is the perfect base for exploring the Yukon's wilderness, with incredible opportunities for spectacular road trips, camping, hiking, canoeing/kayaking, world class mountain biking, kite boarding, trail running, fishing, wildlife viewing, photography, or just relaxing in town and exploring museums, coffee shops and local art.
