Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently had a two week holiday in Canada and having enjoyed a road trip for the first week (Banff, Lake Louise, Revelstoke) we decided we would like to spend some time in Vancouver but at a more relaxing pace than perhaps staying in downtown. We looked at several options but were taken by the Beach House on Alderside in Port Moody. It seemed to have the perfect balance of proximity to downtown but a great and relaxing place to stay. We did little more research than looking at location and photographs and hoped for the best!
Micheline greeted us on arrival and gave us a full tour of the house. It was incredible!! Often I worry that photographs will over sell a holiday home, but it was even better than we'd expected. The views are breath taking, the house is so comfortably furnished, and the fridge had been stocked by Micheline as if we were her own family. Not only that, but she brought lots of toys for our children to play with (who both remained silent at this point as they were both amazed by the place!).
On our first day, we decided to leave the car and stretch our legs, so walked to Rocky Point Park. A fabulous walk, mainly through meandering trails and boardwalks. The park was great for kicking a ball with the kids, watching the wildlife from the pier, eating fish and chips (Pajo's is as good as any fish and chips I've had in England) and enjoying the delicious ice-cream.
There are not many tourists in Port Moody, which surprises me as it's a wonderful place to stay. The quality and choice of food available at the local fishmongers, butchers, Italian Deli and grocers was phenomenal! We shopped there every day for our supper with a regular trip to the liquor store for Canadian beers and wines. The Deli made the most delicious cake for our son's 5th birthday! Everyone made us feel so welcome.
If Vancouver wasn't such an amazing city in it's own right, I'd be happy to spend several weeks in Port Moody, walks on the doorstep, fabulous hosts, outstanding setting, great local shops and friendly people. We're not sure when we'll return but given how wonderful the house is, we're keen to return soon.
A huge thank you to Micheline and Franco for hosting a wonderful vacation home in a fabulous setting. We've made memories for a lifetime!
