Our family stays in 'Serenity' every year as our vacation home. We both have our own businesses and with triplets, we stay busy. So when we decide to take a break, just knowing that we have the home in Lions Bay is amazing. We absolutely love staying there. I've never seen a view as spectacular as the one that we have right on our deck. It's just a terrific place.

Several years ago, I had come to Vancouver just to look at some properties with the possibility of finding a place a year or so down the road. We already knew that we loved Vancouver but we weren't quite ready to get a place.

But when we saw this home, we just couldn't pass it up. As I said before, I had never seen a view as spectacular as the one at this home. So, we decided to just go ahead and do it!

The pictures uploaded of this vacation home does not do it justice. This is one of the most beautiful homes I have stayed in. The kitchen is very well equipped and is very spacious for activities around the house. Our group absolutely enjoyed our stay and experienced no problems. We hope to return very soon!

Great family get together place

This large well equipped, well maintained home has an excellent location just outside of North Vancouver, that allowwed us to participate in the family wedding activities in the big city, but enjoy the peacefulness and great views of the west coast. The property was as advertised, easily accommodating 12 of us of ages from 1 to 57. The whole family felt quite at home in "Serenity" and would gladly recommended it to anyone with a larger group who wants to be just outside the city. The owner was very easy to work with, and the whole experience allowed us to feel like it was our home for the time we were there.

Absolutely A Great Place

It certainly deserves a big Wow from everyone of us - the view, the space, the floor plan, and the big slope. We are a group of 14 adults and kids, and there is more than enough space for us to both gather together and have privacy when required. As said in a previous preview, the hot tub is not inviting. It sure is, but it is not a big deal. We find basically everything that we need including a variety of condiments which is very helpful indeed. Personally, I don't mind seeing left-behind supplies in the kitchen or fridge so long as the expiry date is still good and was kept in good condition, which is the case here. The only minor complaint is insufficient / lack of supply of dishwasher detergent, glad wrap and tin foil. Last of all, the quick response from the owner to all my enquires is very much appreciated. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thanks Adeline for your review!

I'm very glad that you enjoyed yourself and had a good time in our home. In regards to the hot tub, let me know what issues you had and we will certainly take a look. The hot tub was completely drained, cleaned and refilled prior to your visit, but we're always committed to making the home meet all your expectations.

Hope you decide to stay with us again!

Best Regards,

Wayne

Serenity is exactly right

Just returned from beautiful Vancouver. We scheduled a last minute vacation for my family and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The log home we stayed at was so cool - we've never stayed in a log home and I wasn't sure what to expect. Of course, the pictures on the site looked great but you never know...

All I can say is "Wow"...it really is a log home but it's massive with this huge hearth and then standing outside, you just can't believe the view. I wish the weather was a bit clearer that day but even still - you feel so small just looking at it.

The home itself is perched on on the side of the hill which is why you get the views you do. It's quiet, and it's close to Vancouver as well as Whistler. We even took a quick ferry ride over to one of the small islands in the area - the ferry terminal is only ten minutes from the house.

We'll definitely be coming back. It's just a terrific home in a great location.

Amazing View, wonderful rustic and spacious home

We just came back from Vacation to celebrate our 10th anniversary with friends and family. We stayed at Serenity and we had a wonderful time. As many others have stated, the view is just breath taking. Photos do not do it justice.

The home was large and comfortable, with nice leather sofas in front of a huge rock fireplace. The bedrooms are very nicely sized and each bed is a log bed which is perfect since the home is a large log home!

The kitchen was clean and had everything we needed. The deck gives you a 180 degree view of Howe Sound and it is really stunning.

The owner supplies an incredibly detailed manual that will explain everything about the house, although it's really not that complicated.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend it!
