About this listing
Our beautiful and relaxing two bedroom suite with 180° ocean views has a magical West Coast feeling. It comfortably sleeps four and is centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood that makes you feel like you are a million miles away.
This 1,250 square foot garden suite in West Vancouver offers stunning views from every room. From the moment you arrive you are greeted with the most spectacular 180° ocean view, spanning from Mount Baker, Lions Gate Bridge, English Bay to UBC and Vancouver Island.
The space is light filled, airy and soothing to the senses with its beach style decor. Soft turquoise and blue accents compliment the otherwise white painted and slip-covered furniture. Each piece of furniture and art has been hand-picked, painted or made by me. I sought to create a relaxing and spiritual oasis for my guests.
There are two patio areas: one to capture the morning sun with your hot cup of Jo and the other to watch the sun go down with a glass of BC wine. The close in ocean view allows you, on some mornings, to watch the waves come in and out from the shore below.
This beautiful quiet neighbourhood makes you feel like you are a million miles away. Yet with quick access to Highway 1 you will be on your way to Whistler, Cypress Mountain and Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal in just minutes. A five minute drive will have you at Dundarave Village with its eclectic shops, restaurants, neighbourhood grocery store, pharmacy and beach.
Many local attractions like Lighthouse Park, Ambleside Beach, John Lawson Park and Park Royal are within minutes by car or bus. Downtown is easy access both by car and public transit.
The unheated pool is for your enjoyment to sit back with a book or have a refreshing dip while enjoying the spectacular view. After filling your days exploring the city with its many wonderful cultural and outdoor activities know you can come home to your beautiful ocean view retreat.

Interaction with Guests
We live in the upper level of the house, and are always a call/text away if you have any questions. We are happy to recommend any places to eat or things to do. Sometimes I'll share a glass of wine with my guests, other times I give them their space if that's what they wish.
The view and peace and quiet is what draws people to this exclusive neighbourhood of multimillion dollar homes. Explore the many public beach accesses within walking distance. Enjoy a morning run or a simple stroll in the evening on the beautiful seawall which begins at Dundarave Pier.
Public transit is incredibly convenient throughout Vancouver, and it is especially easy in West Vancouver. If you're wanting to head east, the 250 and 253 will take you straight to Dundarave, Park Royal (transfer here if you'd like to go to Grouse Mountain or Capilano Suspension Bridge), and Downtown. The 250, heading west, will take you all the way to Horseshoe Bay. Depending on the time of day, the Airport is anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour away.
Relax and enjoy your little piece of heaven. Lounge around the smoke-free grounds, smile and have fun!
The place was beautiful, very peaceful and relaxing. The view is amazing, especially from the patio and the pool. The pool was well clean and well maintained, giving us an extra source of fun and relaxation. Access to WiFi, NetFlix, and laundry were a bonus.
The local neighborhood, Dundarave, was perfect for morning coffee, grocery shopping, and a few nice pubs and restaurants. A friendly atmosphere. The location is also easy to get to downtown Vancouver and up to Whistler Village.
Ilona was a lovely host--behind the scenes providing all that was needed and in person greeting us with coffee and a friendly smile.
Really good place to stay, quiet community, wonderful sea view, just the traffic is terrible, lol
We felt very welcome staying here at Ilona's beautiful suite for a month. The view, style and feel of the suite was magnificent. It was how it looked in the photos. The two bedrooms gave everyone the space they needed and the living/dinning room was a great gathering place. The neighborhood was absolutely perfect; nice and safe. The host, Ilona greeted us upon our arrival which was in a very late hour. She was helpful, welcoming and kind during our stay. The suite was as expected and gorgeous; we would definitely stay here again when we come to Vancouver next time. Highly recommend this place; it's everything we expected.
Ilona welcomed us into her lovely home, perched on the mountain side overlooking the ocean. Her apartment was lovely, with a cute kitchen and all amenities. It was spotless and cozy with beautiful art, comfy beds and a stunning view. We enjoyed dinner at the patio table outside and swam in the pool. Everything was perfect!
Beautiful place, phantastic view, very nice neighborhood. Great hospitality offered by Ilona. We enjoyed our days in (West) Vancouver very much.
Absolutely lovely place and lovely people. I can't say enough great things about it. Ilona is wonderful and her listing is exactly like the pictures show. She has thoughtfully considered every last thing!
It was a first time experience for us traveling through Airbnb. We just had a perfect place and met wonderful host! llona was always hospitable, helpful and friendly so we were very comfortable, enjoyed having conversations with her during our stay. The house is absolutely amazing- warm and charming house beautifully furnished with her hand made furnitures and her beautiful paintings!! much more than you see pictures. Bright big windows with beautiful ocean view, cozy kitchen and comfortable amenities. Our 2 years old son, enjoyed playing around at beautiful outside garden. We loved to drink glass of wines outside patio table. We felt here was Oasis!! It was the most relaxing and meaningful time for us. We would like to say THANK YOU with BIG HUGHES to llona, for sharing your thoughts, experiences and great spirits. You gave us unforgettable experience and peaceful time.
We are most appreciative and recommend her place highly!!!
About the Host, Ilona
For me travelling is as much about the destination as it is about the people you meet along the way. I share my home with my twenty-something year old son and daughter. We spend a good part of our time in California, and have really loved getting a feel for the different parts of LA thanks to AirBnB!
Hollywood North employs me. Spending quality time with friends and family grounds me. I keep myself busy when I am not working creating projects around my home and garden. My home is my spiritual sanctuary and I look forward to sharing it with my guests and making their stay as memorable as I can!
