Overview

Squamish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms 3 Baths with Gallery style Art walk (Can sleep 18)

And welcome to your home away from home... a true getaway. Located in Squamish BC (1124 Plateau Crescent, Squamish BC V8B 0C2) – the outdoor recreational capital of Canada. This will give u a better idea of the home layout etc.

I have added another bedroom and bath to the home. This house has 3 bedrooms upstairs with the kitchen attached to the living room; a great open concept living space. I have opened up this space and now have another adjoining room attached to this downstairs living space so it is more like a 5 bedroom than a 4 bedroom. I have beds in both rooms. As well there is a gas fireplace in the downstairs living space. Further - there is a 3rd bathroom that will has a pretty awesome shower and custom finioshings. We are very excited about these new additions.

The entire upstairs living area and bedrooms have been renovated with beautiful fir flooring except the bathrooms - the main bath is cork flooring and there is heated slate in the en suite.

Our main bath is warm and inviting with slate accents and an old growth tree slab vanity. The tub is ready for soaking and has air jets to help you relax after a strenuous day out playing in the mountains. The master bedroom has its own wonderful en suite that has heated floors, slated shower with a seat so you can sit and enjoy the rain shower that falls from above. Dim the lights and just let go!

The other two bedrooms upstairs are also good sized and tastefully decorated.

The kitchen is all butcher block with a classic country feel with all the needed amenities. And feel free to use the BBQ, slow cooker or the rice cooker for your favorite meals. Lots of pots and pans and a blende – everything you need to enjoy the spacious kitchen space. And while doing dishes is for the dishwasher provided, the sink is attractive enough to inspire at least one by hand washing. As u wish!

The living space upstairs is an open concept with the fir floors and the artfully stoned fireplace taking center stage. The mantel piece is another piece of old growth wood and adds to the fireplaces allure. Cozy in and enjoy! Lots of wood is available to keep you cozy and warm. Also a guitar and a djembe drum for the musically inclined. Need a lesson. I have a neighbour who is a great guitar teacher! Just let me know!

Need to stay in touch? Use our wireless access anywhere in the house.

Outside, look across the street onto green space and beyond – feeling the power of the chief – the world’s second largest granite monolithic rock – starring at u through the trees. Across the street and around the corner there are wooded paths that will allow you to enjoy a morning walk that will lead you to rivers and streams. There is also a neighborhood playground for kids with swing ropes for your more adventurous youths. And if you have a four-legged friend that wants to share in the mountains... by all means… feel free. While we don’t have a dog or any animals here we are open to well behaved pets and can help you with local dog sitters and walkers if need be.

If you like the idea of exploring the mountains by bike, there are numerous logging roads and for the more adventurous - an endless supply of world-class single track to keep you fit and engaged. And of course rock climbing just 10 mintues walk from our front door to smoke bluffs park and 5 minutes drive to the Chief parking lot.

More of a green thumb? Feel free to enjoy our in season organic garden that will offer you fresh vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers and even some wild blackberries. For those visiting in September - get ready to enjoy the sweet tasting apples off our organic apple tree or the fruits from our black plumb tree.

Any thing else you need? Let us know. I have worked many years in the service industry in both Whistler and Squamish and am well connected in all facets to help you make your stay most enjoyable.

We are very close to the site of the new world class Sea to Sky Gondola and very excited to have that so close for our guests and their families.

For those looking to enjoy Whistler’s world-class resort we are 40 minutes to the Creek Side Gondola. As well, for backcountry enthusiasts we are very close to some great terrain. And of course… ‘sled necks’ - feel free.

About The Owner

Thanks for stopping by.

My name is William. I have lived in Squamish for 9 years after being in Whistler for 10. I chose Squamish because of the community aspects, all the great activities it has to offer to keep people smiling and happy and its proximity to Vancouver and Whistler. I have various activities that keep me busy work wise but i tend to be drawn to social entrepreneurial pursuits. For example, I have my real estate licence and am working to start a community funding (not funded;) real estate business. I also have a small but growing and fun(except when its not) alternative fuel business. We 'up-cycling' waste vegetable oil from local restaurants into a safe and reliable fuel source. I currently have around 10 people who use 'Transphat' as their fuel source. I have two vehicles that run off of wvo. One hard done over 125K. Good clean fun. (ok not always clean).

I also do some freelance writing/photography and moonlight in Vancouver's commercial acting scene as well. Even with that i am a huge traveler and tend to spend a few month's a year on the road experiencing new cultures around the world.

I have spent the last many years renovating this home with the help of friends and family and I am happy and pleased that it feels like a beautiful country style home. I like getting the feedback on how the place just feels good. In my eyes... mission accomplished.

Come on by. You'll like it here.

Buena onda!

Will

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Squamish

Squamish has it all. It has been deemed the out door recreational capital of Canada for a reason. Big mountains with the community feel - - all the activities one could ask for from golf to kite boarding to rock climbing to a selection of beautiful lakes within a short drive to just hang out at and swim in. As well, it is only 40 minutes away from two incredible locations. One being the city of Vancouver, the other being Whistler. Squamish offers a small town feel in one of the most powerful settings. For young and old - its a breath of fresh air!

What makes this house unique

Our home is tucked away from it all in a very quiet neighbourhood. This is not a cabin but is quiet enough it feel like it some times. We have great views and lots to choose from locally as well as easy access to a world class city in Vancouver as well as the well known tourist area of whistler - just 35 minutes to the Creekside gondola. The best of both worlds! And from the house's door step there is so much to do and see. With world class mountain biking, hiking and climbing literally at your back door and just a short dribe to the world's 5th ranked kiting spot - seriously - what else needs to be said!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for this, Will. We have to get our rental car back to Vancouver by 3pm, so won't be out later than noon. It's been a real pleasure staying here though - you've got a beautiful and super welcoming home. Thanks again for sharing it with us.



Happy new year!

comfortable house in quiet location close to Smoke Bluffs.

  • 4 of 5
It is located in the perfect location for us: on a quiet street close to Smoke Bluffs. There were 12 of us staying here, and although it was a little tight, it was overall quite comfortable. There is also a nice yard and deck for hanging out. Will was an excellent host--very responsive and easy to work with. The only negative was that the windows don't have screens, and when we were there (July 2014), it was unusually warm and buggy. As a result, at night, you had to choose from either being hot (with the windows closed) or bitten by mosquitoes (with the windows open). However, as I said, I think that the bugs are almost never so bad.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I will take your advice and add screens to the windows.In fact there are plans for some new windows which will have screens. as well i have a new furnace going in that will help exchange cool basement air for the warmer upstairs are. But great suggestion. Will get it sorted for next summer.The bugs really aren't that bad usually but there are times when there is an hour where they really can get up in your space. Appreciate the suggestion:)

Thanks again!

Great place for big groups!

  • 5 of 5
We had 12 people stay here in the summer for 4 days during Squamishfest and was a perfect spot for us! Lots of room for everyone. Great furnishings and love the open concept kitchen/living room, was great for socializing as a group. It had everything we needed. Felt like home. Great location. William was very helpful! Will definitely stay again... if he'll have us!

My family and I stayed in this lovely home in August 2014. The home was very comfortable and spacious for the 12 of us. We all loved the home away from home feel of the house and the personal touches added to the decor from the owner's travels were beautiful. There are many activities and sights to be seen in Squamish. Perfect for hiking, climbing, skiing, canoeing, and fishing. We especially loved the hiking trails and climbing right down the street. Access to a morning hike is literally at your front door. We also took advantage of the pub and coffee shop which are both a short walk down the street. If visiting Vancouver or Whistler is on your agenda, they are both approximately a 45 minute drive from Squamish.
The owner, William is laid back and friendly. I would definitely return.

Great home near lots of fun!

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 10 friends coming to Squamish for a week of mountain biking and reconnecting. This house was great for us. It's in a quiet and friendly neighborhood, 3 or 4 blocks from one of the trail systems. The house was clean and comfortable, has a great open kitchen/dining/living space with lots of prep space, a large dining table and comfortable couches. The owner was nearby and was easily reachable and attentive...not that we wanted for much. He refilled the BBQ propane tank and arranged secure storage space for our bikes. He seems eager to make the place better and better. I will definitely return.

Squamish has so much outdoor fun and beauty to offer. With a great place like this to stay, I'll take Squamish over Whistler any day.

Amazing accommodations; very well-furnished.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a great weekend in this house.

The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. Amazing accommodations; very well-furnished. We had everything we needed in the house and more. It was as if we were staying in our own home!

William was easy to communicate with and the rental process was super-easy.

Highly-recommended for large-ish groups!

Beautiful area, gorgeous house, lots of room!

  • 5 of 5
This property totally blew us away. We had two families and a couple visiting for a family reunion. Will, the owner, was there to meet us and was available to address every question. Nothing was wrong with the house, it was well stocked, quiet, accessible to all the major attractions. Will gave us ideas for dining, groceries and sightseeing. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful to. SQUAMISH IS THE HIDDEN GEM between Whistler and Vancouver. A must visit place. And the best rental house by far to stay in.
