About this listing
Your mountain home awaits! This bright, spacious, non-smoking condo has all the amenities you need. The unit is a 1-bedroom + den with a double bed, and a double futon. There is a walk through closet from the bedroom to the bathroom that contains a washer/dryer. Secure underground parking, a balcony, dishwasher, a gas fireplace, basic cable, and wireless internet, completes the picture. Access to restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, a library, transit, and even a yoga studio, are just footsteps away.
Hiking, biking, trail running, and skiing are close by, and to get into the heart of Vancouver, is an easy transit ride down to the sea bus, which crosses the beautiful Burrard inlet. Your host is also an outdoorsy kinda guy, so if you're a hiker, skier, climber, or yogi, he can point you in the right direction.
This is a great opportunity to experience and explore what Vancouver is known for - pure outdoor living.

We fully enjoyed our stay at Jason’s, we reached late at around 10pm local time and even then Jason received us personally and helped us with our luggage, a very good gesture. Our stay was much better than our expectations.
It is a 1 bedroom apartment (approx. 600 sq ft I guess), with ample windows for light, with a small loft/den place as an extra place for 1 or 2 persons with a futon bed that was provided; the bedroom is fully private and has a nice comfortable double bed; attached is a nice size closet with washer dryer, and ample shelves, attached to the closet is a bathroom with bathtub. It also has a nice balcony and a big, beautiful Douglas fir is in direct view along with some mountains. Kitchen was fully functional with stove/oven, microwave, press coffeemaker, tea kettle, toaster and full size refrigerator, dishwasher and all pots and pans and even many spices/sauces. A dining table with 4 chairs was also provided. The living room has a fireplace, basic couch, coffee table, a book armoire, and a small LCD TV with many cable channels. WiFi worked really great. There is also coat closet at the entrance. You get your own private secured covered parking spot. Laundry soap, dish-washing/dishwasher soap, and shampoo/bath soap everything was provided. There were travel books and travel literature also available in the apartment.
It is located in a very nice area of North Vancouver, Lynn Valley, which was very lush green in early June.
The Lynn canyon park is right there with free parking, beautiful hiking, waterfalls, fresh/cold/snowmelt swimming pond and a nice suspension bridge.
Via Lynn Valley road or mountain highway by car highway 1 going west and south is easily accessible respectively. If you don’t have a car you can use bus 228, 229 to go to Lonsdale quay to take the seabus to the waterfront/Canada place station/downtown, from there you can go by train/bus to many other places. From airport take skytrain to waterfront, take seabus to Lonsdale quay and then bus 228, 229 to get to bus stop right by the apartment. By car the apt. is around 28km from airport. One can buy transit pass at the airport that we did not need to, since we rented a car, we did buy transit pass for one full day from Safeway nearby; around $8 US dollars per person for the whole day which includes all transit except the aquabus/false creek ferries. Public transportation is really great in Vancouver.
Lynn valley center is walking distance, it has two grocery stores Safeway and Sav on Foods; pizza place (fresh slice), farmers market, telecom shops and many other shops/restaurants facing it is a 24hr McDonalds on Lynn Valley Road and 29th street. Found that Sav On is a bit cheaper than Safeway but you need card for that, which Jason had provided. Small/minor point: provide an xtra fan for summer since opening window may get road noise and slight pollution.
Jason was very quick and kind in his responses , also let me view his condo quickly before my in laws came . This cemented my desire to put them in his place .
Our staying at Jason's condo was perfect.
The condo is clear and beautiful.
We would book again that condo for sure.
That place is perfect to a small family.
Thank you Vera much Jason.
We had a wonderful time at Jason's condo. Very conviently located with grocery stores and everything you need in walking distance. The condo itself is just perfect for the three of us with so much room and Jason really went out of his way to make sure we have everything we needed. It is really the best stay we again have ever had.
Jason was very accommodating with our late arrival. Condo was well kept and very well located to downtown and many excellent hiking trails. Building was quiet and seemed to be well managed. Enjoyed the fireplace. Easy walking (2 minutes) to a mall/plaza with grocery stores, several coffee shops, liquor and drug stores plus others. All you would need. Would definitely stay again if the unit is available. Thank you Jason.
This was my second time at Jason's beautiful apartment in Lynn Valley and I stayed for almost 5 months. After my first stay here in 2012 I had no hesitation in booking the condo for my longer visit this year. Jason has always been super-helpful with everything!
The place is perfect, very clean and tastefully appointed. The location in the idyllic Lynn Valley is very peaceful, surrounded by nature, and yet close to transport, shopping and restaurants.
Jason was super helpful with everything to do with our stay. He was always available if we had a questio. The condo was so clean, and so close to every amenity you could need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend this condo.
