Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We truly enjoyed staying here, in this charming old house. Loved the outdoor area with fire pit and great view. We spent several evenings outside by the fire. This place was perfect for us. Not too far (40 min) from Squamish, and only 15 minutes to Vancouver. Whytecliff park nearby, and nice dining in Horseshoe bay, 3 minutes away.

We stayed at Helena's home for 5 days in February. The home is in a beautiful residential area just a few minutes away from Horseshoe Bay. The view from the home is spectacular.

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks with my husband, two kids (10 and 6 years old) and my mother-in-law. The house was great! The beds were comfortable. The house was very well equiped. The area was very quite and we enjoyed sitting mostly outside enjoying the sunsets, the views, and all the different birds that flew in the garden, including several hummingbirds. The house was very airy and bright. Helene gave us a warm welcome and was very attentive to our needs. The house is in a good location close to the ferries and just a walk away from Horseshoe Bay and very easy to get to the highway to go to either Whistler or main part of Vancouver. Yet you are away from the hustle and bustle.

Great vacation rental for the whole family :)

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who needed a rental while our home was undergoing renovations and we were lucky to have found this beautiful gem. We were very impressed with the gorgeous views from the property. The home is warm and very cozy with ample space for us all. I would recommend all who want a refreshing and peaceful stay to rent this home. Helena is a gracious host who goes out of her way to make you feel taken care of and at home. The home is situated near the Horseshoe Bay ferries and there are restaurants and places to eat. The only issue I would bring up is the lack of storage space for clothes and food. Because you are renting a lived in home, the is very little storage room to unpack into. The cozy stay and amazing views make up for lack of space to unpack into. If you are as lucky as we were, you may even be visited by a family of friendly raccoons.

Helena's home was the perfect place to stay while visiting Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in West Van but am now based in the UK and my husband and I and our 3 children (11,13 & 14) stayed in Helena's home on holiday for two weeks. The house is very spacious, clean and airy and even prettier than the photos. There is a lot of natural light from several large windows which also allow an amazing view of Bowen Island. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the showers are great and the beds are very comfortable. Helena was really welcoming, helpful and accommodating and I really cannot fault anything. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood near the golf course and the area is perfect for running and cycling. It is also an ideal base for getting to the BC Ferries, Squamish, or Whistler and it is only a 15min drive to Dundarave/Ambleside. I recommend this house for anyone who wants a relaxing and comfortable holiday and the chance to explore the North Shore. I truly felt at home in Helena's house.

Incredible views and AMAZING stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time here! There is access to horseshoe bay in a 3 minute drive as well as many hikes and great restaurants close by. The property and home was fantastic and the photos don't do it justice, as the views from the deck and porch are INCREDIBLE! We were a group of 6 and would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in West Vancouver. I can't wait to go back, thank you Helena!!!

This lovely home comfortably accomodated 5 adults and 2 children. Everyone enjoyed their stay in this welcoming, eclectic, conveniently located house. The patios and garden spaces added to the charm.

We would definitely book this vacation rental again without hesitation, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing environment.

Lovely, Sunny and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We as a family were very happy to be able to spend a few days at Helena's home in the area of Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver BC. We were attending a family wedding in the area and,staying at the house, allowed us to stay together as a family and visit, instead of the alternative of staying in separate hotel rooms in the area. The house is very close to the village and within a 10 min walk or a 5 min drive,to the very spectacularly scenic townsite of Horseshoe Bay,where there are some very popular restaurants for breakfast, as well as lunch & evening dining. Also, close to the BC Ferry terminal, and the fantastically scenic, Sea to Sky hwy. if one wants to come in from Vanc. Island or even drive for 1.5 hrs to Whistler to ski. The house is not new, but renovated and bright and is easy to find and is situated in a stately well tread neighbourhood, above above any possible townsite noise.Upstairs, it has lovely views from 2 rooms. We found it very comfortable and we had plenty of room for our family who used both bedrooms,both full bathrooms and the upstairs den( one must be able to climb a normal set of stairs) for sleeping.The master bedroom bed was extremely comfortable and clean. The house has 2 decks which are very private so in the summer, it would be a nice place to sit and visit on a sunny day.

We were very happy Helena was so accomodating for us at this time and it helped to bring our family together,create happy memories, reduce our stress during this time period. I would definitely stay here again,& recommend it, and already have to friends and family members in the area. Parking also was easy, and 2 parking spaces available plus the street,which can be a problem in such a popular area.This is a great place to take off from for a hike or a swim,boat ride or sail in the beautiful area of West Vancouver.
