My house is on the edge of the rain forest, yet within a half hour of downtown, with some of the most spectacular hiking and biking trails in Vancouver. We are close to Deep Cove, Mount Seymour and Lynn Valley Canyon. You'll love my place because it has everything for everyone. Wake up to hear the babbling stream and the birds sing, and yet you have easy access to all amenities: transit, restaurants, shopping and major tourist attractions. Explore the beaches at Deep Cove Village by the ocean.
People often describe our street as a charming, fairy-tale cul-de sac on the edge of the forest. Your room is warm, spacious and airy - looking out at the forest. It is super quiet except for the sounds of birds and stream. It feels like you are living in the middle of nature, and yet you have easy quick access to downtown, shopping and major attractions. For business travellers, there is a desk, iron and free wifi.
Guests will have full access to everything on the main floor, which includes a large living room with TV, mini fridge, and comfy couches. Feel right at home in this cozy environment. Extras include a sauna and a breakfast nook with coffee, tea, granola bars, etc. A second bedroom is available upon request.
Interakcija s gostima
I am happy to give you advice on local restaurants, hiking, transportation and Vancouver's many wonderful attractions. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone if you have any questions. I usually greet guests at the house and show them around the house where local trails are, but if you arrive at an unusual hour, there is a lock box available. We live upstairs on the second floor, if you need anything.
Our street is at the beginning of some popular (and spectacular!) trails, and you will often see hikers and bikers going into the forest. This is a great area for people who love the outdoors and want to be close to the city action at the same time.
Welcome to our home!

There is a bus stop less than one block from my house.
