Squamish House Rental Photos and Description

Squamish is recognized as the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada. We have endless outdoor activity options available here made possible by the natural physical attributes of our geography.
You can hike or rock climb the Chief, go snowmobiling, hit the ski slope up in world famous Whistler/Blackcomb (which is only 30 mins away). Bird watching is a must, especially since Squamish is home to North America’s largest gathering of Bald Eagles. Bald eagles start arriving as early as November and stay as late as March, with their population peaking during December and January.
Local activities also include windsurfing, kite boarding and hitting some great mountain bike trails. We have trails for every sort of rider (leisurely rides in the woods to full downhill trails). Every year Squamish hosts the test of metal mountain bike race which brings in many competitors from all over the world.
Squamish is located mid-point from Vancouver to Whistler. The Sea to Sky highway is rated as one the top 10 scenic roads in the world to drive on with breathtaking views points along the way.

Hi! Thanks for clicking on my rental. Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Lina and I moved to Squamish in 2001 from Australia but grew up in Ontario. I only heard of Squamish from a stranger that I met for a very brief moment and he raved about how beautiful Squamish is and how the town was changing from a lumber industry town to a tourism town. After my divorce, I decided I wanted to return back home to Canada and I knew I wanted raise my kids in a small community where there were mountains and water for us to enjoy. I then surfed on the internet about Squamish and I was able to check off everything that I was looking for. It was final, I decided to make the move to Squamish.
During our drive up to Squamish , I can still remember that special feeling I had in my stomach as I drove up and looked out at the views. Seriously, my jaw was open with awe and my eyes just couldn't believe the natural beauty that was in front of me; not just for one second, but through the whole journey up the Sea to Sky Highway. I knew then I was making the right choice and, now after 12 yrs, I still feel the same way. My kids wonder why each time we drive back home from Vancouver I always say 'Wow! look at how beautiful it is'. I just reply because it is beautiful and it is amazing.
Even though I think Squamish is my favorite place I still love to venture out. I am a traveler at heart and have traveled most of Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South America, Europe and of course been to many places throughout the USA. Yet there is still so much I want to see and experience and discover. I usually travel abroad a few times a year.
I picked this location to because of it's great, gorgeous views of the snow capped coastal mountains, and its' close proximity to everything. From local amenities to easy access to Highway 99 for commuting to Vancouver or Whistler.
The house has a very open floor plan .
There is a nature path just steps from the front door that leads to the Mamquam river. Take a nice stroll, mountain bike, jog or whatever you like to venture out for.
