The Space

You have a large living room with a separate entrance, with parking at your doorstep. The room has large view windows and a built in eating area. The furnished bedroom has a queen size bed, a fridge and a door leading to the backyard where you will see Canada Place, the Lions Gate Bridge and the mountains which are 5 minutes away by foot. If you love nature, you can walk for hours on the hiking trails or mountain bike to your heart's delight.

If you are arriving by air, you can jump on Canada Line which will take you directly to the Seabus in 25 minutes. During your stay, if you are without a car, there is a bus at the bottom of our street that will take you into downtown Vancouver or elsewhere in North Vancouver.

If you are planning to take the bus, there are lots of restaurants and shops on Lonsdale, approximately 1 mile down the hill. However, if you are travelling by bus, it would be a good idea to do your grocery shopping or eat before you jump on the bus to make the journey up to our home.

When we are available, we can arrange to give you 50% off the tram ride up Grouse.

Interaction with Guests

We live in our home and love to interact on a daily basis. If we are going to be away, leaving my 25-year old son to take care of the home, I will let you know.

The Neighborhood

Safe neighbourhood with an uninterrupted view of the water and Vancouver as you walk to the trails which are 5 minutes away.

Getting around

There is a bus which takes you directly into downtown at the bottom of our street during rush hour. You can also take the bus down to the Seabus which also takes you directly into downtown.

  • We had a wonderful, short stay with Dianne. The family was incredibly accommodating and it was one of the most comfortable AirBnB spaces that I have stayed and a great price.

    The space is very rustic (in a wonderful way) and has 2 levels with great views of old growth trees, the mountain, valley and harbour.

    We would definitely recommend this unique space to any AirBnB guest :-)

  • Dear airbnb:
    We stayed with Diane and Dennis in Vancouver and IT WAS FANTASTIC. Even though this was our 1st experience using airbnb, we realize that we hit the jackpot with their home. We had our own entrance which opens to a big beautiful custom made wood lined family room which resembles a ski chalet with a breath taking view of Vancouver from above. Then we were led down the spiral staircase to our bedroom, another beautiful spacious area, which also had plenty of windows to enjoy the spectacular view of Vancouver glowing from her city lights at night. We had our own full size refrigerator downstairs and our our custom made lazy Susan table surrounded by a circular booth built into a corner of the upstairs room at the top of the spiral staircase . There is a tv with a dvd player which we used to watch a movie we brought. The weather is perfect this time of year but there is a wood burning stove for the winter months. You just have to open a door to the main kitchen to get to the bathroom but it is your own private bathroom. The bathroom was big, modern and clean as if it had been recently redone. We came to see Vancouver but we were tempted to skip the sightseeing and stay inside this perfect gem of a getaway.
    We already had plans to see as much of the Vancouver area as possible during our 1st short stay here; and, it was the perfect location to go into downtown Vancouver, or Stanley Park, or Grouse Mountain, or Capliano Suspension Bridge Park. We did all of these things; and, Diane and Dennis were great to talk to and more than happy to give advice and little tips about things to do in the area. They were great hosts and genuinely great down-to-earth, good-hearted people.
    We will definitely be coming back to the Vancouver area in the future and we will absolutely try to book our stay here again whenever we do come back. We would give Diane and Dennis's place the highest recommendation possible. Thanks. Mariatheresa & Frank

  • Clean, very quiet, plenty of space to spread out and a private entrance. What a wonderful place to call home!

    My wife and I loved our time at Diane's home, and felt safe, welcome, comfortable, and were much happier than our stay at the Marriott.

    Located less than 20 minutes (in light traffic) from Downtown Vancouver, with Grouse Mtn. within walking distance from the front door and stellar views of the city.

    The beautiful view of the city, the fireplace, comfortable bed, television and dvds, wifi, and Diane's warm hospitality made our stay a wonderful one.

    For some travelers, the bathroom is not en-suite and requires a 5 second walk through the kitchen. Wasn't a big deal or negative for us at all. For some folks, this might be an issue. For us, we completely enjoyed the opportunity it gave us to visit with Diane and her husband.

    Overall, highly recommended and we look forward to coming back again soon to visit Vancouver and stay at Diane's!

  • Stayed with Dianne, while I visited a number of friends and their families who live close by; so for me the location was extremely convenient. We didn't cross paths a lot however when we did Dianne was delightful and a great host.

    Communication was prompt and extremely helpful with my enquiries. I was initially unsure of my dates and Dianne was very kind and understanding. Her flexibility was greatly appreciated.

    The view is exceptional especially at night when the twinkling lights of the Lionsgate Bridge are exceptional.

    The spacious bedroom (down stairs from a equally spacious sitting / living room) has a connecting door to the shared living space, kitchen and bathroom.

    This is a perfect venue for summer as the bedroom is lovely and cool. The accommodation is close to forest hikes and has a bus route down the rather MASSIVE hill which - incidentally - Dianne rides up and down on everyday with her trusty bike. I saw her doing it and was in awe of her!!

  • Dianne was a lovely host and made us feel at home, we had our own entrance and key to enter and leave the beautiful home with stunning views over vancouver and lions gate bridge, we wished we had stayed longer! Dianne was so kind that she drove us to our ferry at horseshoe bay on the day of departure, thanks again for a memorable stay, Julian & Clare

  • Highly recommended! The hosts are very nice. Dianne showed me the neighborhood and some hiking trails and even took me to Lynn Vally. The house is very nice with a beautiful view on downtown Vancouver. Thanks again and greetings from Germany!

  • The b&b is very well facilitated with excellent view as it is advertised. Diane and Denis are excellent host and helpful. They took us for a 2 hour walk on the Grouse Mt. whiich became a highlight of our trip in Vancouver. I would definitely like to stay there again.
