City of the arts! – is located at the head of Burrard Inlet and at the foot of Eagle Mountain. A vibrant city of 30,000, port moody is located an easy 30 minute drive from both downtown Vancouver and the US border. Your port moody vacation rental is just steps from seaside parks, mountain trails and lakes. Enjoy all the attractions and excitement of the big city while staying in the peaceful intimate surroundings of our unique waterfront community. Nestled at the foot of eagle mountain, the protected harbour invites boating and kayaking, fishing, while the forested park lands above offer quintessential west coast wilderness with hiking trails, lakes and mountain vistas. Our suite has a partial ocean view off a Private Deck and is just a short walk from Beaches, Kayaking, Pool, Recreation Centre Restaurants and abundant shopping.
This suite is an above ground garden suite located in our home which is tucked away on a quiet street with only 4 other executive homes, surrounded by forest and overlooking the pacific ocean. We built this home ourselves and paid particular attention to the suite as we knew we were going to be renting it to guests so we included such things as a dishwasher, an elevated private deck, large fireplace and a split level design for added privacy.
This location offers the best of both worlds; you have forest on three sides but you're still only a 5 minute walk from great restaurants, hiking, beaches, or you can just take a relaxing walk to Rocky Point for some great live music. We also have many wilderness friends who like to visit, so don't be surprised if you turn a corner and see a few deer snacking on my geraniums.
There are many golf courses in the area, some as close as 5 minutes by car. Ski lifts at North Shore Mountains (Cypress, Grouse, Seymour) are only 35 to 45 minutes away and a drive to Whistler takes about 2 ½ hours.
If you want to pop into Vancouver you have a choice of the commuter train, bus or the sky train, it takes about 20-30 min. The US border is a 30 to 40 minute drive.
The suite is bright and airy with many large windows and french doors, it has 12 foot ceilings on the main and a huge slate gas fireplace. We added a touch of whimsy with a solid walnut canopy bed. The living room furniture is covered in soft micro fibre and is very comfortable. There is a 32 inch high def LCD TV, with high def box and DVD player. There is also a CD player and a selection of DVDs and CDs.
There is plenty of storage available, a large closet for luggage etc on the upper level and generous closets in both bedrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped, I like to cook so I tried to make sure I thought of everything but if I missed something be sure and let me know. This suite is a split level and the second bedroom is on the second level for added privacy. The suite has a private Deck, reserved for the exclusive use of our guests with a BBQ, patio table and chairs, it’s a great place to make plans for the next day and take in the sunset over the water. Port moody is called 'the city of the arts' and we have many very talented local artists. The suite has many pieces of hand made pottery and I've left many pieces down to be used.
There is a full size washer and dryer in-suite laundry for the exclusive use of our guests.High speed wireless internet service is available and a scanner/printer for your convenience.
We leave some things in the suite that may come in handy, cards, paperbacks, DVDs, CDs, games, and beach toys.
I am a Potter and work out of my home studio so it is not unusual to walk by the garage and see me spinning my latest creation. I am also a local Realtor so I'm very familiar with the area so if you need any directions or just want to find out about the area don't hesitate to ask.
