Overview

Vancouver Coast House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The property is in Vancouver Heights (NW corner of Burnaby). From the property, there are fantastic views from Stanley Park and Vancouver harbour in the west to the North Shore Mountains and Indian Arm in the east. It's a 15 minute drive to a number of great spots including the heart of downtown Vancouver, the foot of Grouse, Cypress or Seymour Mountains, and the sandy beaches of Barnet Marine park. This is a great location!

The neighborhood is known for its wonderful delis, coffee shops, and restaurants of every ethnicity.

There is a marine park right below the property offering miles of jogging and hiking trails that reach into Burnaby Mountain to the east, and the waterfront and city to the west. It's easy to get to the top of Burnaby Mountain, the home of Simon Fraser University, with lots of great recreational opportunities and classes found there. The North Shore Mountains - Grouse, Seymour and Cypress - present multiple down-hill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing options in the winter, and hiking trails, wildlife reserves, restaurants and picnic areas in the summer all with stunning views of the lower mainland.

Parks in the neighbourhood include a large park above the property with tennis courts, climbing apparatus for kids, and a soccer field, and a larger park called Confederation (2 minute drive away) with a full-sized jogging/walking track, climbing apparatus and water park for kids, picnic tables, etc. Its adjacent to Eileen Daily Indoor Leisure Center (pools, steam room, exercise classes, weight training facilities).

Public bus transportation is a 5 minute walk from the property.

Below the track is the Burnaby Central Railway operated by a BC Engineers association taking families on miniature train rides through the forested area (summer).

The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds are a 3 minute drive away and offer Playland (family amusement park), Hastings Horse Racing Track (spring and summer) and the Pacific National Exhibition in the last 2 weeks of August. Check out the PNE site online for many other activities and events hosted there, and for their farmer's market days.

Close by is the New Brighton beach park and outdoor swimming pool - great for a swim and afternoon picnic....There is so much to explore in this neighbourhood!

Just so there are no surprises....at the back of the house, under the living-room, dining-room, my husband and I have a suite. We park in the back, come and go through the back into our own entrance - there is no shared entrance with guests. We are completely separate. Our guests don't 'see' us unless they need something :)

About Sean

My family was in the harbor-tour business for many years. We really enjoyed taking visitors out cruising in Vancouver harbour and beyond - experiencing the mountain, ocean and city views from the water. Its familiar but different now - welcoming visitors to enjoy the 'views' - this time from the 'Heights'.

Sean purchased this house in 1987

Why Sean chose Vancouver Coast

Aside from the convenience to so many great recreational and cultural venues, the specialness of this property is it's unbelievably great, ever changing, mountain and harbour view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ranking: 5 stars

Stayed: September 29, 2012 till October 5, 2012



Our family had an excellent vacation staying at this wonderful place for a week. This was the perfect place for our family of two grandparents, three adults, and a young toddler. The house was spacious, spotless, very comfortable, and well supplied. We absolutely loved the location of this house, especially the gorgeous views of the mountains and the harbor from the dining room and upstairs bedrooms.



Our family also loved this quiet residential area, good parking spot in front of the house for our rental van, short walking distance to a nearby park, easy access to public transportation, 5 minutes drive to Safe Way, bakeries, fruit markets, cafes and numerous restaurants.



Thank you Wayne for your great suggestions on the restaurants, especially the Italian and Japanese places. It was so relaxing eating late night dinners with delicious take outs from the nearby restaurants, nice and quiet with our baby already in bed upstairs, while enjoying the amazing million dollars view from your dinner room. Thank you Sean for providing the baby gates, the Pack and Play, the high chair, the basket of children books and toys, and especially the three vases of beautiful fresh cut flowers for the welcoming touch. Both of you were so friendly, caring, helpful, and had made us feel so welcomed. It was a truly a home away from home vacation experience. We would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Vancouver, especially family with children.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was very clean and well maintained and the owners, Sean and Wayne, were very kind and helpful. It made us feel at home away from home. It is very spacious and really has great views. The neighbourhood is calm and pleasant. Would certainly recommend this property to others and would like to return.

Bright,welcoming haven

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotless, open plan and had terrific views all the way down to Vancouver. The mountains on the other side of the river were fabulous, the ski hill on Grouse Mountain being lit up at night. The hostess, Sean and her husband Wayne could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We did not rent a car and if you are unwilling or unable to walk 12-15 minutes into town then you should consider this. We had a wonderful time, a home away from home.

Perfect haven

  • 5 of 5

Have recently enjoyed a wonderful stay in Burnaby at this property. The hosts, Sean and Wayne were SO hospitable, a perfect pair. Sean certainly knows her area well and Wayne was most solicitous,a driving my husband around the area to introduce him to the shops and transport services. We did not have a car during our stay in Burnaby, there is about a 12-15 min walk to the nearest avenue of shops, initially uphill, so if you do not want this exercise then a car is required. We used the public transport system, buses, sky train and sea bus, all very simple. The house is open style and spacious and equipped with everything needed for a lovely home from home stay. Comfortable, light and airy, the views from the windows are superb, day and night. Eagles were seen during our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit Vancouver but not be in the main part of the city. Travelling on the public transport systems only added to our experience and we met many lovely people, only what we expected in Canada!
