About Wayne Chan

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.

Why Wayne Chan chose Lions Bay

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!

A unique and tranquil property

  • 5 of 5

This property is spectacular. The setting is beautiful and house itself is stunning. We spent a weekend here in March, soaking up sunshine and the amazing view from the deck. We had several BBQs and were impressed by how well equipped the house was, with everything you could need to cater for a large group. Wayne was really helpful from the moment we booked until the day we checked out, always easy to get hold of and replied super-fast to queries. I'd recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay near Vancouver or wanting a peaceful and relaxing getaway.

Serenity: the state of being calm and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Right from the get-go, this was a great experience. From the owner being super easy to get in touch with and ask questions, to the amazing house that we walked into.

The house is massive and had room enough for 14 of us! The kitchen was roomy and there was a dining space for all of us to fit.

The beds were comfy and there was space for us to spread out and have time to relax.

The view was incredible.

We look forward to coming to stay again!

Lovely Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great, huge, house for our friends birthday getaway. The view was beautiful and it really was a serene home tucked up high over looking the ocean. It is not a new home, but it is well kept and the owner has clearly made efforts to make it comfortable for visitors. We had everything we needed, and the entire rental process was very easy.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Twenty minutes north of downtown Vancouver and less than an hour from the world famous resort of Whistler. Lions Bay is a beautiful community overlooking breathtaking views of Howe Sound. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the community's own private beach club, or take a short drive to Stanley Park and bike along the seawall.

Whether you decide to shop at the upscale shops along Robson Street, take a picturesque ride up a sky tram to Grouse Mountain, lounge in the hot tub overlooking the ocean, or play a game of pool in the game room, Vancouver has something for everyone, and 'Serenity' in Lions Bay is the perfect place to stay no matter how busy or relaxed your stay will be.

Notes We definitely want all our guests to have a great time when they stay with Serenity. The only thing we ask is that all guests treat the home with the respect they would have for their own. 99% of all our guests have been wonderful, but on a couple of occasions, guests decided to have blow out parties into the night, damaging the home and disturbing our nice neighbors. No wild parties!
