About Graeme and Helga Farquharson
We have lived in White Rock since 1985 and are local business people. Helga has been a realtor since 1977 and Graeme a travel consultant since 1986. In 2010 our nest became empty so we are sharing our unique setting.
Graeme and Helga Farquharson purchased this House in 1988
Why Graeme and Helga Farquharson chose White Rock
Our home backs onto a 26 acre nature park with over three miles of hiking trails and year round streams. Many different species of birds as well as wild rabbits, racoons and squirrels roam the area and frequently visit our feeders. The view is ever changing.
What makes this House unique
We love to sit and watch the sail boats in the bay or the kite surfers at play. Paddle boards are the latest rage here as well as the kayak school in the evenings. There is always something to see.

Graeme and Helga are super hosts and there home is fantastic. Graeme is a true gentleman and suggested we stay another day as the winter conditions on the highways was very bad, just the thought that he was concerned about us travelling in those conditions shows the kind of person he is. We would definitely stay again. Gail and Roger Hall Kelowna B.C.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you have a safe and uneventful journey home and a very Happy New Year.
We hope to see you again.

Honestly words and pictures don’t do this justice, the interior has everything you could wish for, a true home away from home. The outside patio is breathtaking!!! I was strongly tempted to stay out there for the entire 4 days we were here. A testament to how great this place is, my sister is a anxious in new places and since this was our first trip “out of the country” since our mom died I expected the anxiety to be worse but she has already asked me if she can stay forever.. or at least can come back in September :). The hospitality was great too, kitchen was stocked with all kinds of breakfast things, and the recommendations of where to eat were spot on, delicious! We can’t wait to come back!
Thank you for your review. It is always nice to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay.
We hope you had a safe journey home and will come again.

A Perfect Oasis
We wanted a home base for our visit to the Vancouver area. This was everything we could have hoped for, and more. Graeme & Helga have obviously put a great deal of thought, expertise, and effort into making their space comfortable, welcoming, and user friendly. The apartment is beautiful, very well laid out, and appointed perfectly. We were so comfortable and felt very much at home during our stay. The icing on the cake is that exceptional view. Priceless!!!!!
Thank you for your review. We hope you had a safe journey home and will come again soon to take advantage of that whale watching coupon.

Rest, Relax, Read & Enjoy!
The reviews before us were not wrong! This place is a little slice of heaven! Perfectly located just a short walk to the town & the beach. The house itself is amazing! Has everything you would ever want and then some!! This time of year the fireplace was a very cozy touch to have. The most amazing part are the Hosts! Graeme & Helga are amazing! They had the place all decorated for Christmas, complete with a small tree! We had read about Helga's famous chocolate chip cookies, which were delivered to us still warm and they did not disappoint! Graeme is quiet the fellow; funny, charming and engaging, very helpful with any need you might have. Helga & Graeme were so gracious, it was like visiting friends. We are already planning a trip back in the summer to enjoy the beautiful deck and furniture!
Thank you for your review. We are glad that your stay with us warrants a return visit and we look forward to seeing you again. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

A home away from home. Everything you need.
Graeme and Helga have thought of everything for the perfect getaway. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. It was wonderful to have plastic food wrap, salt, oil, and spices on hand. We were relieved to find beach towels too as we did not have room to pack any. Their binoculars were a treat to use on the perfect deck with a great view.
They were friendly and very helpful making our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Just minutes from the U.S. / Canadian border and 30 minutes to the Vancouver International Airport and ferries to Vancouver Island. Steps to the waterfront promenade and pier with lots of local eateries. Golf, wineries, and loads of shopping minutes away. Vancouver, just 35 minutes away. Transit just steps away.
