Our cottage for one traveller is a private bright space with vaulted ceiling and skylights, cozy gas fireplace, and peaceful garden outlook. It is a short walk to hiking trails along the Seymour River and to the Baden-Powell Trail. Capilano University, Capilano and Lynn Valley suspension bridges, Deep Cove village, a bird refuge, and Lonsdale Quay market are also close by. Downtown Vancouver is 20-25 mins by car, and there is frequent bus service. The neighbourhood is very quiet and safe.

The space
Guests often comment that it is very quiet at night--typical of a bedroom community--and that they have had some of their best sleeps in a long time. We follow Airbnb's COVID-19 cleaning procedures. A natural gas freestanding fireplace keeps the space cheery and warm in winter. A large work desk with fibre-optic internet overlooks a private garden. A black & white printer is available on request. A new frameless glass shower is roomy and the bathroom has its own built-in heating. A comfortable Murphy bed lifts away to provide more space by day. We provide fresh-ground Starbucks coffee plus fresh eggs, and pizza for prepping in a premium toaster oven. Full blackout roller blinds give you complete privacy while three skylights provide lots of natural light. We respect your privacy but are immediately available through talk/text/doorknock should you need any help or suggestions.

Where you’ll be

North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Ours is a safe family community called Blueridge which is close to a variety of amenities and destinations, including the mountain, river, and lakeside trails. The area is said to have some of the best mountain biking trails in Western Canada, lovingly developed by numerous biking clubs, high schools and MEC. Our cottage is just 10 minutes by foot from the trails. Nearby are two golf courses and practice ranges, a bird refuge on Burrard Inlet, craft breweries, restaurants, shopping, a public rec centre with pool/skating rink/fitness rooms, Capilano University, the picturesque seaside village of Deep Cove and the quiet idyllic Rice Lake.

During your stay

Brenda, a college teacher, and Michael, a journalist, have raised their family and lived in their home for decades. They are now grandparents and have been enjoying travelling using Airbnb. Now they are looking forward to hosting other travellers. Born and bred in Vancouver, they are knowledgeable about the city, and, specifically, the North Shore. They can recommend restaurants, craft breweries, galleries, theatres, beaches, forest trails for walks and cycling, and waters for kayaking, canoeing, paddle-boarding and sailing. Besides access to the beautiful West Coast parks, and Deep Cove's quaint village and water sports, there is a bird sanctuary at Maplewood Mud Flats, and an animal sanctuary with farm animals at nearby Maplewood Farm.
