Squamish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms 3 Baths with Gallery style Art walk (Can sleep 18)

And welcome to your home away from home... a true getaway. Located in Squamish BC , Squamish BC V8B 0C2) – the outdoor recreational capital of Canada.

I have added another bedroom and bath to the home. This house has 3 bedrooms upstairs with the kitchen attached to the living room; a great open concept living space. As well, there is a large living room downstairs that can double as a fourth and fifth bedroom as the large space is separated by sliding doors. each room has its own entrance and access to the downstairs bathroom. As well there is a gas fireplace in the downstairs living space. The downstairs bathroom is kinda awesome. great shower and nice and bright with heated floors and a balinese petrified wood sink sitting on an impressive fir slab. It is maybe one of my favorite showers.

The entire upstairs living area and bedrooms are finished with beautiful fir flooring except the bathrooms - the main bath is cork flooring and there is heated slate in the en suite.

Our main bath is warm and inviting with slate accents and an wood slab vanity. The tub is ready for soaking and has air jets to help you relax after a strenuous day out playing in the mountains. The master bedroom has its own wonderful en suite that has heated floors, slated shower with a seat so you can sit and enjoy the rain shower that falls from above. Dimmer lighst also a nice feature.

The other two bedrooms upstairs are also good sized and tastefully decorated each with ample closet space.

The kitchen is all butcher block with a classic country feel with all the needed amenities. And feel free to use the BBQ, slow cooker or the rice cooker for your favorite meals. Lots of pots and pans and a blende – everything you need to enjoy the spacious kitchen space. And while doing dishes is for the dishwasher provided, the sink is attractive enough to inspire at least one by hand washing. As u wish!

The living space upstairs is an open concept with the fir floors and the artfully stoned fireplace taking center stage. The mantel piece is another piece of old growth wood and adds to the fireplaces allure. Cozy in and enjoy! Lots of wood is available to keep you cozy and warm. Also a guitar for the musically inclined.

Need to stay in touch? Use our wireless access anywhere in the house. As well enjoy apple tv:)

Outside, look across the street onto green space and beyond – feeling the power of the chief – the world’s second largest granite monolithic rock – starring at u through the trees. Across the street and around the corner there are wooded paths that will allow you to enjoy a morning walk that will lead you to rivers and streams. There is also a neighborhood playground for kids with swing ropes for your more adventurous youths. And if you have a four-legged friend that wants to share in the mountains... by all means… feel free. While we don’t have a dog or any animals here we are open to well behaved pets and can help you with local dog sitters and walkers if need be.

If you like the idea of exploring the mountains by bike, there are numerous logging roads and for the more adventurous - an endless supply of world-class single track to keep you fit and engaged. And of course rock climbing just 10 mintues walk from our front door to smoke bluffs park and 5 minutes drive to the Chief parking lot.

More of a green thumb? Feel free to enjoy our in season organic garden that will offer you fresh vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers and even some wild blackberries. For those visiting in September - get ready to enjoy the sweet tasting apples off our organic apple tree or the fruits from our black plumb tree.

Any thing else you need? Let us know. I have worked many years in the service industry in both Whistler and Squamish and am well connected in all facets to help you make your stay most enjoyable.

We are very close to the site of the new world class Sea to Sky Gondola and very excited to have that so close for our guests and their families.

For those looking to enjoy Whistler’s world-class resort we are 40 minutes to the Creek Side Gondola. As well, for backcountry enthusiasts we are very close to some great terrain. And of course… ‘sled necks’ - feel free.

About William Edmondson

Thanks for stopping by.

My name is William. I have lived in Squamish for 9 years after being in Whistler for 10. I chose Squamish because of the community aspects, all the great activities it has to offer to keep people smiling and happy and its proximity to Vancouver and Whistler. I have various activities that keep me busy work wise but i tend to be drawn to social entrepreneurial pursuits. For example, I have my real estate licence and am working to start a community funding (not funded;) real estate business. I also have a small but growing and fun(except when its not) alternative fuel business. We 'up-cycling' waste vegetable oil from local restaurants into a safe and reliable fuel source. I currently have around 10 people who use 'Transphat' as their fuel source. I have two vehicles that run off of wvo. One hard done over 125K. Good clean fun. (ok not always clean).

I also do some freelance writing/photography and moonlight in Vancouver's commercial acting scene as well. Even with that i am a huge traveler and tend to spend a few month's a year on the road experiencing new cultures around the world.

I have spent the last many years renovating this home with the help of friends and family and I am happy and pleased that it feels like a beautiful country style home. I like getting the feedback on how the place just feels good. In my eyes... mission accomplished.

Come on by. You'll like it here.

Buena onda!

Why William Edmondson chose British Columbia Mountains

Squamish has it all. It has been deemed the out door recreational capital of Canada for a reason. Big mountains with the community feel - - all the activities one could ask for from golf to kite boarding to rock climbing to a selection of beautiful lakes within a short drive to just hang out at and swim in. As well, it is only 40 minutes away from two incredible locations. One being the city of Vancouver, the other being Whistler. Squamish offers a small town feel in one of the most powerful settings. For young and old - its a breath of fresh air!

What makes this house unique

Our home is tucked away from it all in a very quiet neighbourhood. This is not a cabin but is quiet enough it feel like it some times. We have great views and lots to choose from locally as well as easy access to a world class city in Vancouver as well as the well known tourist area of whistler - just 35 minutes to the Creekside gondola. The best of both worlds! And from the house's door step there is so much to do and see. With world class mountain biking, hiking and climbing literally at your back door and just a short dribe to the world's 5th ranked kiting spot - seriously - what else needs to be said!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for this, Will. We have to get our rental car back to Vancouver by 3pm, so won't be out later than noon. It's been a real pleasure staying here though - you've got a beautiful and super welcoming home. Thanks again for sharing it with us.

Happy new year!

Lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was travelling to Squamish for our wedding, and we booked this house and Will's other property (Plateau Livin' Cliff Side), which is just across the road. The two houses were perfect for us, with all the essentials and lots of room for all our siblings, nieces and nephews. We enjoyed walking to the nearby river and hiking in the area. Will was very easy to contact and provided all the information we needed.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place and great location. Only minutes from town, that means food! Amenities in the home were great. Primary living room and kitchen area all one room so it is a great place to mingle. 3 bedrooms up stairs were great and 5 beds down stairs in one open area. Very clean. Nice heated floors in bathrooms.

Mountain Bike/walking trails only two blocks away :-)

Owner was real responsive to texts and questions...really great to work with.

If I return to the area, I woudl definately stay here again.

so much personality, unique

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the Plateau over a long weekend with some friends for a mt biking trip and had a fantastic stay. The house & neighborhood are oozing with personality. The house had a very cool vibe & was very relaxing. Tons of open space and sleeping areas. One of the coolest things was that some of the bike trails exited just several meters away. We had the ability to ride straight from the house, to the trails and end up back at the house (in a big loop).

Will was very helpful and welcoming.

Definitely recommended.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on the plateau! We fell in love with the neighborhood right away, the crisp clean air, and the stunning natural environment! The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed (bath towels, kitchen towels were all provided - we brought our own shampoo, but hardly anything to fret over!) William had the fire going for us when we arrived, so we immediately felt welcomed and cozy. The house is spacious with lots of character, beautifully yet simply decorated, clean and well-set-up for spending family time together...would highly recommend, and can't wait to come back again!

grungy unfinished house, pretty location

  • 1 of 5

The house was grungy, not very clean and unfinished - walls in the ground floor were sheet rocked, not painted, flooring was subflooring, even upstairs there were unpainted spots. The house was fairly dirty, dishes were broken, glass bowls had sharp chips in them. There were no matching dishes or glasses or cups. The coffee maker broke mid stay. The outlet in the bathroom didn't work. The shower in the master bedroom bath didn't work and when we initially were to check in the owner said he hoped we didn't mind if the toilet didn't work and we had to insist he fix it. The electricity and hot water were connected and when someone plugged in a hair dryer it all went off and we had no hot water for showers for college graduation, the main event. The living room was spacious and the area has nice views.

Owner's Response: Oh Cynthia - it was well before you arrived that i knew you would be the most challenging guests I have ever hosted in the 4 years I have been doing this. Thanks for showing me my instincts are razor sharp. Your negativity from the moment we spoke was palpable and has stayed consistent until the end. I am actually surprised you had even one positive thing to say. It is interesting that the situations that did arise for your group happened to you and not the 100’s of other groups that possess a more positive outlook. Maybe negativity really does attracts bad things?? (seems obvious to me) Certainly something I believe and I can only hope you find a way to find some happiness somewhere – even if it wasn’t in my home. To all prospective guests I please ask you to look past this review and see the other forty plus 4-5 star reviews that I have received over the past years. And also know that I did a very thorough smudging of the home to remove the negative energy that may have been left behind. Not normally my thing but I have to say I haven’t ever dealt with a negative energy quit like this one. See you on the plateau☺
