The "Wave" (Doris's place) is a cool comfortable hub for all things adventure in the Vancouver area. Maybe 30 mins to downtown Vancouver for the city life and big box stores, less than an hour to ski hike bike the nearby mountains, casual walking distance to the middle of Deep Cove's attractions. Watersports and rentals, variety of small town (village??) restaurants and shops along with the history. Such a cool place to stay. Doris and her husband are the best Airbnb hosts we have had yet and anyone would love hanging at their place. Thanks Doris!!

This ground floor apartment is conveniently located just minutes away from the beach, kayak rentals and restaurants. The neighbourhood around the house is very quite, as is the apartment itself. The suite is attractively decorated and is very clean. The bed was comfortable.I would stay here again!

The location was amazing. Just a short walk to coffee shops/restaurants/waters edge and a beautiful view of the marina right when you come out the door and start walking towards the main part of town. The place itself was recently renovated, is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It has its own private entrance, it is quiet and has a comfortable queen size bed along with a washer/dryer and full kitchen. Doris was very accommodating and easy to work with along with being highly responsive and having a sweet, personal demeanor. This place is highly recommended.

Thoughtful attention to detail - had all that one needed right down to great expresso with cream in the fridge :) Expectations surpassed. Loved the decor, the quiet, and the location. Enjoyed a tip-toe view of the water in the cove and the sun reflecting off the mountains out the back patio door. A bonus: Doris was very flexible re: checkin/outs which suited my needs. Will definitely look at staying here again - thank you.

I honestly fell in love with this amazing place! A cozy house in a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful nature, many hiking trails, nice local restaurants and cafes- what else could I ask for more? Plus, a short walk to the bus stop, which takes you anywhere including a lot of attractions and downtown. My favorite routine was to visit one of cafes after a nice hike up Quarry Rock and have some delicious smoothies or late lunch. Even though the wet season had already set in, we were fortunate enough to see some stars at night near the ocean. And Doris and Rob are wonderful people. They gave all the information we needed to make our stay just perfect. I'm glad we could visit this incredible place. I cannot wait to come back!
