Burnaby 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!

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.

Amazing views of mountains, water and Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the property - especially the amazing views of mountains, water and Vancouver. It was easy to get in and out of Vancouver - we were able to explore the city and then return to enjoy neighborhood quiet when we wanted.

The owners were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Their house was comfortable and well stocked. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Fabulous holiday base for Vancouver.

  • 5 of 5

Quickly felt at home in this property helped by a lovely warm welcome from the owners. It was a lovely property with beautiful views over Vancouver. I could 've stayed there and just read books all day looking out the window but there was so much to do and with two teenagers we had to be busy! The house had everything in it and the owners were kind enough to supply all the toiletries you needed and pancake mix for breakfast which was a great treat!

We filled our five days to the full with a visit to Victoria on Vancouver Island, a drive up the sea to sky highway to Whistler - the scenery was stunning and a cycle around Stanley Park with a visit to the Aquarium and some shopping in Vancouver with go on the Air Canada ride at Canada Place - highly recommended. Would love to return and would not hesitate to book this property again.

Great property with wonderful owners :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here and Sean and Wayne were a fantastic source of information and made great recommendations for us! The house has a great location and wonderful views and a beautiful area around to go on some lovely walks and a great little park super close for the kids to play in. We managed to fit in a trip to Stanley park and the Vancouver aquarium , a trip to Lynn canyon and the suspension bridge , a trip up grouse mountain to see the bears and a great lumberjack show , a trip to the world of science museum for the kids and even a visit to the beach! We also ate at some wonderful restaurants very close to the house. This was a fantastic vacation and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at this house! It had everything you could need and more! Thanks for a great trip!

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this house justice. We had a hard time leaving each day to go exploring because of the view. My mother-in-law enjoyed sitting on the couch reading her book while looking out the windows. The house was very well stocked. The owners thought of everything. There are just so many positive things to say. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen was great. We enjoyed cooking and hanging around the center island. It's a great set-up. The owners are very kind and welcoming. We definitely plan on coming back.

The house was also well located for us. It was an easy 25 minute or so drive to most of the main Vancouver city attractions (Stanley Park, Granville Island, Gastown, etc...). It was also a good base to head to the suspension bridges and other hiking areas. There are also plenty of restrauants nearby as well as easy access to grocery stores and other shopping.
