About Iva Dietrich

My husband, 2 kids and I are an active family that enjoy the outdoors! We love Vancouver and have lots of great ideas of what to see and do (but only if you ask, we respect your privacy too).

Iva Dietrich purchased this house in 2007

Why Iva Dietrich chose North Vancouver

The best part about this property is that you are only 20 minutes away from the city and yet when you are here you feel away from it all. It's a peaceful, tranquil, natural setting!

What makes this house unique

The view is spectacular! From your own private deck, you will enjoy views of the city, Lions Gate bridge, and the mountains on Vancouver Island. Every sunset is unique! It's a photographer's delight!

Super

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic rental. Location is especially great if you enjoy hiking - this is on the highest street in the North Shore, and so woods and very well-kept trails are on your doorstep, and it is but a short drive to the foot of Grouse Mountain. Words cannot describe the view from the patio, of the city, harbour, and beyond to Vancouver Island. The suite itself is very comfortable, and the hosts are most gracious and helpful. Highly recommended.

cozy retreat with fantastic views of Vancouver

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two weeks at this apartment with our 12 year-old daughter. The property is as depicted in the photos -- small but adequate for our two-week stay. The suburban location is quiet but you will need a car if you are doing lots of sight-seeing as public transportation, while good to metro Vancouver, would be less than ideal if you are going elsewhere.

This was a good fit for us as we spent most days doing activities. I think it would be good for any couple or family with up to two school-aged children. I would not recommend it for those with very young children as there is a steep hill outside the door which could be a safety issue.

The owners are very hospitable and helpful. If you are wanting a boat tour, Steve can provide that at an extra fee, which was very reasonable. We really enjoyed this part of the trip and highly recommend it!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely home - the views are stunning and it is just the right size for a family of four. Very convenient to local attractions and the hosts couldn't be more welcoming or gracious. Highly recommended for visitors to Vancouver!

Great Place for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in this apartment, located just beneath the owner's home. It has its own entrance and the backyard had much to enjoy with table tennis and foosball, not to mention the amazing hiking just steps from the backdoor. Our boys, ages 8 and 10, loved the bunk beds and a little room to spread out. We are not skiiers, but Grouse Mountain is very close. However, we did have a great bike tour of Stanley Park. It was fun to see the bridge and ships after our tour with new eyes. Iva and Steve (and their kids, too!) were wonderful hosts, attentive to our needs and queries, while still respecting our privacy. I would highly recommend this property if you are staying in the Vancouver area!

Car: recommended

Mountain Top Holiday House is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in North Vancouver that is surrounded by nature. The home is located at the end of a cul de sac that leads to a park, creek, hiking and mountain biking trails. There are large cedar trees to east, Grouse Mountain to the north side and an ocean city/island view to the south and west. Although it is fairly close to many tourist attractions like Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension bridge and Londsdale Quay, a car is recommended for getting around easily. If however you are training for a bike race or triatholon this location is a perfect terrain for conditioning. Some of our guests have also used this peaceful setting as a yoga retreat. Whatever you want from your vacation, staying here will truly give you a British Columbia experience that you will enjoy and treasure!
