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!
It’s a great experience by living in Ilona’s home. The suite is comfortable and has everything you need for short time staying. It has fantastic ocean view and good decoration taste. Ilona is very busy but responded quickly when we had any questions.
The most amazing place that we stayed at during our Vancouver visit . Although Ilona was extremely busy at work, any question I had was relayed via SMS and immediately replied by Ilona with a helpful and friendly response.
The pictures advertising the property were accurate and more. A stunning view day and night, a gorgeous garden and a private sitting area.
Such care and thought to decor..
Absolutely a lot of good energies I received both from Ilona and her beautiful apartment.
It was a dream vacation! Thanks Ilona for being an amazing host. She took the time and effort to help us optimize our itinerary. The house was immaculate and exceeded our expectations. The view is amazing. My folks literally fell in love with the place and want to come back to it next year. Thanks again for a wonderful experience !
Ilona's place is comfortable.Bright big Windows, neat and clean house, comfortable bed, a beautiful garden and a swimming pool, especially 180 - degree ocean view.
Everything are the same with her pictures and descriptions.
Ilona is warm and hospitable, she recommended some scenic spots and restaurants to us. we don't know where is the bus stop, she personally took us to find there.
Everything was perfect!
Ilona's place is absolutely fabulous. My family (wife and 2 teenagers) stayed a week and it was everything as advertised and more. Ilona is a super person as well. She was always just a text away with information about the area, more importantly she was a great person to meet.
The living quarters are beautiful, both inside and out. The outdoor area was fantastic, with a view of the harbour and the beaches of Vancouver, the pool and patio were great as well.
If you are staying in the Vancouver area THIS is the place to stay. We all loved every minute of our time spent here.
Ilona was so amazing to deal with. She was so helpful and always emailed back right away. Ilona went above and beyond to make our stay seamless and easy. We requested strict privacy and weren't bothered once which was so refreshing. The space was beautiful and clean and I would recommend it to anyone.
An absolutely great experience in Ilona's house! We had a great time! Ilona and her daughter Daisy are beautiful and nice! They prepared everything we need prior to our arrival!The house's decor is just perfect! and everything is neat and comfortable , itz really an oasis for our stay in West Vancouver! .......I have a lot more to say , and is all about AMAZING!!!!!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!
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!
