We built this custom 4 bedroom home in 2011 and love it. As teachers, we are fortunate to have our summers off to get away and let others enjoy our home. This can be your Vancouver summer home-base for exploring this great city in its finest months.

First and foremost, this is a family home in a family neighbourhood. We love and value our neighbours and hope that you will too. Secondly, this is our home, and home to our two teen-agers - so we take care of it, and ask that you do the same.

The space
The house has 4 bedrooms upstairs. The master has a large walk-in-closet and ensuite bathroom with dual sinks and a huge walk-in shower with double shower head. There is another family bathroom upstairs. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and is unoccupied for most the year. Our teens' rooms are also available and one has a new queen sized bed, the other has a twin that can be converted to a king (though slightly shorter, I think).
Downstairs, we have a well-stocked kitchen with gas stove, large fridge/freezer (6 feet wide), a large eating and food-prep island. The dining space has windows on three sides, and three skylights making for a bright and beautiful space for meals. There is a walk-in pantry (stocked with basics and more), and a laundry/mud-room off the kitchen. The living space is very open and includes a family room with large couch and two leather chairs and a large TV with full cable and Netflix.
The office features a standing desk (if you MUST work) as well as some free weights and a PELOTON spin bike which you are welcome to create a user account on. (It's actually pretty amazing!)
Also on the main floor is a powder room, office, and den which includes another 55" TV and piano. All rooms have glass doors to maintain the open feel.
Vancouver summers are a time to be outside. Out back, we have a table that seats 8, a Weber natural gas BBQ, and a paved area with a basketball hoop. There is also a "grass" area featuring high quality artificial grass requiring no maintenance!
We love our front patio too! It has two Adirondack chairs and is a great place to sit in the evening and connect with the neighbours who walk by (and they will say "hello").
Please message me if you have questions about our house, and if you think it might be nice for a summer rental. We can make it available for any part of July and August with a minimum two-week stay.

Where you’ll be

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada

Our neighbourhood is just that, a true neighbourhood. Kids play on the street, neighbours greet each other, and also watch out for each other. We have two parks each about a block away, and each with a playground and picnic areas.

We are located very close to YVR, and while there is some airplane noise, most guests (and we've had many), comment that they are surprised at how unnoticeable it is.

The McArther Glenn outlet mall is a 15 minute walk and is home to a few dining options, and many stores for an afternoon shop.

My wife, Karen, and I are from Vancouver, BC, where we are both elementary school teachers. We have two kids, love to travel. We have loved having our home as an AirBNB option for folks traveling through YVR. We have met some amazing people and look forward to meeting more! Karen and I are both avid readers, movie watchers, and socializers, and have recently built a house that is designed to host our family and friends comfortably for parties and overnight stays. Hope to meet you soon!
