Overview

Deep Cove House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN A UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL LOCATION YET CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER...

At our beautiful location, you are immersed in the incredible wild nature of B.C., and still only 20 minutes from Downtown Vancouver! We are at the foot of Mount Seymour, a great ski hill just a 15 minute drive up the road. You can access incredible hikes from your doorstep through forest, kayaking and boating up Indian Arm, and many more great outdoors adventures while having easy access to the city. (For more information click on our website link below further down this page, by scrolling down you will find it right after the Owner Info and Contact Us sections.)

You have a beautiful, quiet, bright, spacious home, on a huge property with a large landscaped garden with a stream running through it. The garden now has multi level bench seating surrounding a fire pit including it's own trails throughout. Deanna Kasta, the architect owner has lovingly remodeled her prize home, preserving the rich warmth of the Cedar walls and exposed beams, and taking advantage of the amazing views over Deep Cove which you can see from the panoramic windows, the big, wide deck, and the outdoor hot-tub. It is such a delight to soak in the hot-tub beneath the stars, away from city lights, and return to a wood fire in the comfort of your Deep Cove home. The house is on a large (200 x 50 ft) property with a mountain stream and there is a managers' apartment on site for convenient help at any time.

The views here are enthusiastically declared, by all who visit, to be of the best in Vancouver; the tall, ancient forests, pristine mountains and islands, and the calm sparkling ocean. You can watch bald eagles, hawks and humming birds, and you might even be lucky enough to see a bear or a deer!

We provide all the amenities you need to call home, so that you can be self- sufficient and economical, all with a hot tub below with it's own view and the stream running through the entire property. We include great furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room, fresh linens and towels, and a package with maps, information, and tips to help you acclimatize. All utilities and services are all free and unlimited, including; a new Movie quality 60" Flat Screen TV with cable and Netflix, and high-speed wireless internet for all your devices!!! We even have a Ping Pong table in our enclosed carport that you can use.

You will love being in the quiet yet friendly Deep Cove Community with it's local theatrical plays and quaint downtown. It couldn't be more lovely. But please don't take our word for it... look at our many 5/5 star reviews included on this site or look at our own website. Our many guests over the last eight plus years express the unique experience of an Eagles Nest stay best.

Noise Restrictions: Our Deep Cove neighborhood is very quiet with four foot setbacks between houses, which is normal for our residential area. The neighborhood is very pristine and quiet and noise can travel quite far here. It is almost completely residential, so noise after 10:00 pm and before 9 am cannot be tolerated. This is especially true out on our deck and in the Garden and outdoor Hot Tub. Please be careful about this because we would not be able to have you as guests in Deep Cove without it. If you do make excessive noise after 10:00 pm or before 9 am or excessive noise in the house that bother our neighbors, we reserve the right to ask you to leave without a refund. Please understand Eagles Nest is not and cannot be a Party House. If this is your intention for your trip, we respectfully ask you please find a more appropriate venue.

Parking Restrictions: Usually we have ample parking for families or friends staying at Eagle's Nest. We have room for 3 cars parked close together in front of our carport here at 2490 Caledonia Ave. (The reason for this is our neighbors have one parking space to the left of our garage (as you face the garage) near their steep driveway.)) The very small amount of street parking on this narrow street is highly valued by residents who have steep driveways, so when there are unfamiliar cars on the street, the neighbours can get upset. So for more than three cars, please use the free car park on Panorama Drive (the parallel road below) and shuttle each other up. The distance (2 ½ blocks) can also be walked easily. Also please be careful not to block our neighbour's driveway and remember it is a quiet family neighbourhood.

About Deanna

Nothing brings me more joy than transforming properties into dream

homes and gardens, making them come alive, and providing a quiet

sanctuary for people to be.

I have 35 years experience buying and renovating properties, and more than 20 years experience in the holiday rental business.

My first holiday rental property in Wales, is a gorgeous mountainside

acreage overlooking the Pembrokeshire coastline, with 2 old buildings

that were transformed from rubble into mansions. This time and

experience has given me the knowledge of how to provide a consistent

and reliable standards of service and hospitality, in order to be

continually awarded 4 stars from the National Tourist Board of Wales.

Renovating Eagle's Nest in Deep Cove was a dream come true. This has

really been my chance to create my dream home to love forever and

retire in. But in the meantime lucky renters can enjoy it for

themselves.

Deanna purchased this house in 2006

Why Deanna chose North Vancouver

I was completely blown away by the views and the feeling of being in wild nature, and the immediate accessibility to Vancouver. when I bought it, the house needed entire renovation, and it makes me so proud to have transformed it to high standards, and to realize the potential of such a beautiful space that I can share this with guests visiting the greater Vancouver area. This is what its all about for me.

What makes this house unique

- Incredible panoramic views of wild BC throughout the house!

- It is very rare to be in such pristine surroundings with such amazing proximity to Vancouver.

- We have a 7,500 sq foot landscaped Garden with a Stream running through it, a hot tub and deck, multilevel bench seating and trails throughout. The Stream also runs beside the house.

- Beautiful hiking from your doorstep, incredible kayak and boat trips nearby.

- Mount Seymour Resort just a 15 minute drive up the road for Summer and Winter hiking and Skiing/Snowboarding

- Gorgeous homely atmosphere lovingly restored by the owner.

- Free and unlimited services including, computer with high-speed internet, Movie quality 60" flat screen Television with satellite cable connection including Netflix, and all utilities.

- A large luxurious Barbeque with six burners.

- Kitchen facilities fully stocked for self-catering.

This North Vancouver (Deep Cove) house worked great for our summer family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July 2016. The listing description accurately described the property, location, layout, and amenities. The house is not air-conditioned; we did use fans at night. There are many windows and skylights that open and allow pleasant cross breezes that kept the house cool and comfortable.

The property was clean. Parking space was sufficient. House has a beautiful view out the rear to the Deep Cove harbor. Houses on both sides are very close to the property, but during our visit one was empty and the other seemed occupied only on the weekend. Hot tub is located in the yard down below the first floor rear deck. Small village of Deep Cove consists of two blocks of retail shops, casual eateries (including coffee shops and pizza), dock and kayak rentals, businesses, and one nicer restaurant. It’s a ten-minute stroll downhill from the property, with then a moderately strenuous uphill walk back up to the property.

We met the owner, Paul, who happened to greet us upon arrival (he and his wife live in a separate “manager’s apartment” beneath the two-story rental property). He was gracious and friendly, giving us some instructions regarding usage and advice regarding available activities, local shopping and dining, etc. Although we did not need him, he was easily available to us onsite and provided his cell number as well.

We would recommend this property subject to the following pros and cons:

PROS: scenic location and views; nice house that worked well for our family of four adults, with three separate bedrooms, large TV, internet, ping pong table, laundry facilities, and outdoor deck with a gas grill. Deep Cove is a picturesque, small village in quick walking distance, with easy access to North Vancouver towns and activities.

CONS: distance from downtown Vancouver (depending on location of your desired activities); upstairs en suite bathroom sink was very small, with minimal counter space; both showers are small stalls; the condition of kitchen cabinets, appliances, and bathrooms was average, but all worked well.

If you are easy going and not expecting new or fancy accommodations, this place will work well for you, as it did for our family.

Local activities we enjoyed: Deep Cove village (including Arm’s Reach restaurant and the locally famous Honey’s Doughnuts); Deep Cove Kayak Rentals; Quarry Rock trail and lookout; Mt. Seymour Park trails; and visits to other North Vancouver towns, seawalls, and parks.

Lovely solid cozy home with beautiful views..

  • 3 of 5

We stayed with our three small children and enjoyed our stay. The home is a lovely example of a post and beam home and is very warm and cozy. The only complaint I would have is that the bedrooms need proper window coverings if you have children. We found ourselves hanging sheets on the windows so they could fall asleep and not wake up at the crack of dawn (5am!). If you are all adults and aren't bothered by brightness while you sleep it's a great place overall!

Top 10 Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I am a Vancouverite so I can truly say this home is PERFECT for families and nature lovers. Our family from Australia wanted to be close by to our Mother and myself and we are fortunate to live in the Deep Cove area. The view is outstanding of Deep Cover and at your fingertips is Quary Rock and all the Baden Powell trails, Kates Park, kayaking, tennis and swimming. PLUS, the charming village of Deep Cove...go to Honey's Donuts and Arms Reach for dinner. Your home has a great room so large familes can be accommodated. We had 35 over for Christmas Dinner and 16 of us sleeping in the home. And, if you like ping pong you'll love the automatic serve machine. Wood burning fireplace is tops! Paul and Denna made us feel at home...did I mention the HOT Tub and the beautiful gardens?

Couldn't Have Been Better!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to Vancouver and don't know where to stay, you have come to the right place. This truly is an ideal location and everything about this home we enjoyed. Paul made us feel right at home and made himself available to us any time. You will absolutely love the location! The panoramic views, the local town with the best coffee and donut shop, the comfort level when you're at home, the excess number of seating, the sound system, and the location were some of the awesome features that stood out for us. We will definitely come back and without hesitation choose this home again!

The property is even better than the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and a spectacular view!! We all loved the hot tub in the backyard that is located next to a cascading creek.

The owners we VERY nice and extremely helpful. There were 9 of us at the house and plenty of room for everyone. The wood burning fireplace was a great area to unwind and relax.

Great open concept with great view

  • 4 of 5

Excellent house for entertaining, we rented this so my family could get together for a large dinner. My dogs were welcome and there was great walking trails just up the cul de sac. The view was lovely. The furniture and beds were comfy the jacuzzi tub was nice. The hot tub had way too much chemical, it burnt your eyes to sit in it. (It had just been topped up so the balance may have just been off from that). Deep cove is quiet and out of the bustle but you are close enough to to downtown that it's convenient. Gorgeous backyard.

Owner's Response: Oh very sorry Kristi about the balance in the Hot Tub. If you had contacted us we would have changed the water out. The dispenser may have gotten stuck and let too many pellets out at one time. Thanks for letting us know! It will not happen again. Thanks for coming!
