Vancouver Coast Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Nestled along the shoreline of Howe Sound, only 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver and 1 hour from Whistler, is the picturesque seaside village of Lions Bay, where this can be your home away from home. Away from the bustling city, yet close enough to enjoy it’s amenities, you’ll experience a West Coast lifestyle where eagles, sea lions and dolphins calls home. (see our 'YouTube' links in the 'other activities' tab below)

Beyond the doors of your private entrance located on the lower level of a new semi-waterfront luxury home, is a 1000 square foot ocean-view guest suite offering a resort-style experience.

With two luxurious queen bedrooms and a pullout single bed our suite will accommodate up to 4 guests in privacy and comfort. With a fully equipped granite galley kitchen, top of the line stainless steel appliances, home theater, luxury bath, in-suite washer/dryer and fireplace, this 4 star accommodation is the perfect for vacation getaways, long term executive stays or fashion and wedding photo-shoots.

On your private 200 square foot deck, gaze at the 180 degree ocean view as you sip your morning coffee or lounge with a good book. At Lions Bay Beach and Marina you can launch a boat, ocean-kayak, swim or work on your tan. You can play 18 holes at the spectacular Furry Creek Golf and Country Club or ski at Cypress Mountain, both 20 minutes away. For world class skiing, Whistler, home to the 2010 Olympics is an hour away. At nearby Horseshoe Bay, you can join a fishing charter, an eco-ocean tour or rent a boat to discover local islands at your pace. Eateries are plentiful with a dozen restaurants and bars between quaint gift shops. If you're an adventurist, Kelvin Grove Beach is a local haven for scuba diving or you can hike up the famous 'Lions' a pair of 2000 foot high twin peaks overlooking Howe Sound giving Lion's Bay it's namesake. In the evening, fire up the barbeque, uncork a bottle of wine and dine al-fresco on your private deck as cruise ships sail by. After dinner, enjoy a beverage in the gazebo or by the fire-pit and witness a truly stunning sunset followed by an evening soak in your private 8 person hot tub. It’s all here for you at Extended Stays in Lions Bay.

Wonderful Stay! What a great host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Liz's (and Jon's) house. If we needed anything, Liz was on it. Beautiful views and a very comfortable living space. The hot tub and the projection movie screen were additional perks to the stay there. Thanks again for the hospitality!

Incredible place, incredible views, and incredible hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry Liz and Jon that it's taken so long for me to leave a proper review. We had an absolutely incredible stay in Lions Bay and Liz and Jon provided us with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The views are better than advertised and Liz and Jon were terrific hosts. Liz has tons of information about the area, the history, maps, etc. on hand to help out with any day trips you may be thinking of taking. The patio made for fantastic evenings of eating outside. Easy access to both Whistler and Vancouver. Full, well-stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, dishwasher, etc. The beds were comfortable as was the rest of the furniture. Internet and tv were both better than any hotel's. We really enjoyed the drop down movie screen and theater seats. The driveway is very steep, though nothing to be afraid of. My family and I would absolutely love to stay here again in the future. Thanks again for opening up your home.

Incredible stay, best hosts ever!

  • 5 of 5

The stay we had at Liz & Jon's place was one of the highlights of our trip. First of all the place is absolutely incredible, you couldn't ask for better views. It was nice to hop in the jacuzzi and watch the sunset with that amazing view. At night we enjoyed the projector screen that they had, which made us feel like we were at the movies. This place has everything you could possibly need, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, a bbq, and a gazebo to sit and relax.

Jon and Liz were such great hosts. Liz welcomed us when we arrived and helped us carry our luggage and groceries down to the suite. Liz then gave us a rundown of everything that we needed to know. She was extremely detailed and we felt very comfortable with the place. On our first night there, Jon actually came down and took photos of us with the sunset. They later printed one out for us to take home! After taking our photos, Jon was extremely gracious to let us in to their home and they gave us some suggestions for our trip. It was a last minute decision to visit Vancouver for us so we didn't really have anything set for what to do. Jon and Liz gave us great recommendations for what to do, along with detailed maps on how to get there, where to park etc.

I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Vancouver area. It is only a 20 minute drive to Vancouver and a short drive to other outdoor/nature areas such as Squamish and Whistler. Thanks again to Jon & Liz for a great stay on our trip!

Excellent Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Lion's Bay everything was fantastic from Liz the host to the suite, the view and the easy drive to either Vancouver or Whistler.

Everything was top notch, great value, people and experience.

We will definitely be back if it's ever available.

If you do stay make sure you can walk up and down stairs, it's not a hard walk there's a railing and Liz will drive you up and down the drive way with your luggage but it does provide some exercise. ;)

Thank you we had a great time.

Stunning view, charming hosts and comfortable bed !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely vacation rental for only two days and truly wish we could have stayed longer. The area just NW of Vancouver has amazing views and stunning sunsets. The self-contained apartment is beautifully set up and has everything you could possibly need. The decor is in soft shades of mocha and quite modern. There is the most stunning view of Howe Sound from the living room/dining room and one of the bedrooms. The only thing to be aware of is that the drive way is quite steep, however, the owners are so helpful they not only greet you warmly but also help with any luggage you have. If you do not feel comfortable driving your car down to the house there is parking right at the top and there are stairs down to the house. There is a small convenience store in the village that is well stocked in case you didn't get a chance to buy your supplies beforehand and the owner has stocked the kitchen with a few essentials such as herbs, spices and a few condiments. We will certainly book this wonderful unit the next time we are in Vancouver.

Most Outstanding VRBO Property !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lion's Bay was absolutely the most relaxing and beautiful properties you can imagine staying at. The owners John and Liz were the most accomodating hosts you will EVER encounter. We had total privacy and the pictures do not do justice to the beauty and spectacular views of the property. During our stay there was a power outage in the area but our hosts had a back up generator that never interrupted our gorgeous apartment's amenities. The only drawback of the property was having to get in our car and drive away and I fully expect to spend time there again next year and the next etc. Thank you again John and Liz for your graciousness and well appointed with ALL amenities vacation property !!!
