Please note: Due to excessive abuse by telemarketers I no longer display my phone number. If you'd like to talk to me, please send your message and I will call you and/or give you my phone number.

ATTENTION ROCK CLIMBERS: This is ideal place for you. The Chief is just 7 minutes driving distance from here. Add another 5 minutes and you are in the outdoor adventure mecca of Squamish.

If you like quiet, unpretentious living then this accommodation is for you.

This 2 bedroom, air-conditioned, large apartment (1200 ft² /110 m²) is located in the village of Britannia Beach, only 45 minutes driving distance away from downtown Vancouver. Stay close to everything what the city of Vancouver has to offer, while enjoying the peacefulness and serenity of suburban living and outdoor activities of the Vancouver coast.

The apartment includes spacious dining and living area, with a superb view of the Howe Sound and the mountain at the other side of the water. As a bonus, you can bask in the sun at the outside deck, or even have your all meals there. Both bedrooms have their own, separate full washrooms. Sleeping arrangement is for 4 to 8 people.

Free local phone calls and high speed internet are provided. Ample parking in front of the house and at the street.

You will be living in a vintage, air-conditioned, house in a quiet and charming neighbourhood at about 50% discount of the prices of the Vancouver metropolis.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

Perfect location to explore what Squamish and Britannia Beach have to offer, and there is plenty! We had a wonderful stay, the host was very helpful, the house has the old charm with modern amenities.

Very good place

  • 4 of 5

Jan has a very good place and it's good value for money. Initially we had the impression that this is an independent home and not an apartment within a home. So we had some reservations. But the experience was great. The view was great! And Jan was very helpful all along. If you value your privacy and yet want to enjoy the place- this is a perfect get away. It's an hour from Vancouver and tight smack in the middle of everything that nature has to offer! Good stuff Jan! God bless!!

Owner's Response: Yes, this is a free standing house but only the first floor of the house is being rented out. In addition, there is upstairs a small apartment that is from time to time being used by me -- Jan -- the property manager, if I am not staying in Vancouver. However, I have my private entry and I am doing my best to be quiet and to not interfere with the guests enjoyment of the property. The property owners who are away want me to "have an eye" on the house during their absence.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

Nice accommodations. Plenty of common room. The kitchen is small for cooking.

Owner's Response: Just to make sure that someone doesn't get a wrong impression of the kitchen after reading this comment. It is a standard kitchen with a standard size stove, kitchen tab, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, etc. It was made for a couple who lives in the house during the winter and they don't need a huge kitchen. So it is not as big as one might be used to have but it is absolutely enough for one or two people to prepare meals in it.

Lovely view of Howe Sound

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five and we enjoyed our four day stay in this house. It was a charming place with a beautiful view of the Howe Sound. The house was well stocked and had everything that we needed. The beds were very comfortable - even the pull out sofas had good mattresses. Jan was very thorough and helpful in arranging our stay. He let us know about the nearby gondola and we went to the top. We did some hiking and had some amazing views. We were close enough to the town of Squamish to enjoy some nice restaurants and their music festival, but just far enough away that this house was a quiet getaway.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

What else can I say. We (group of 4) had a wonderful stay. Plenty of room, incredibly clean, very well appointed, and the view could not be beat. Britannia Beach is THE best location along the Howe Sound. Cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful time in Britannia Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! Beautiful view of the Howe Sound and the mountains in the other side of the water. The house was clean and comfortable. With two full bathrooms and a kitchen it housed the six of us very comfortably. Jan was very accommodating about our check-in and check-out times and he was always available with advice of places to go, etc. It was a beatiful one week vacation even if it rained two days in the row. We will definitely come back again.
