A mountain valley home, near Vancouver and the sea

Visit the beautiful city of Vancouver and the nature-blessed West Coast of Canada.
Our Lynn Valley neighbourhood In North Vancouver is a quiet suburb between forest-covered mountains and an inlet of the Pacific Ocean.
Your exchange home is a four-block-walk to Lynn Canyon Park. The park has a pedestrian suspension bridge that spans a dramatic river canyon, surrounded by the tall trees of a West Coast temperate forest. Lynn Canyon Park encompasses about 250 hectares.
Thousands of hectares of forests, and dozens of trails, are protected in parks in North and West Vancouver. But the City of Vancouver and all its attractions are also nearby, accessible by car, bus or passenger ferry.
Our split-level house has three levels and more than 2,000 square feet of floor space. The house includes:
- A 24 by 14 foot living room, a 13 by 11 foot dining room, a 17 by 9 foot kitchen with a four-person kitchen table, and a covered backyard patio (30 by 15 foot, with an outdoors table and chairs).
- A queen-sized bed in a master bedroom with a full, ensuite bathroom (bathtub, shower, sink and toilet.)
- Two more bedrooms (one with a queen-sized bed and another with a single bed).
- Another full bathroom (bathtub, shower, sink and toilet).
- Wifi internet access for guests.
- Downstairs: a 16 by 10 foot family room, with a TV and library; a half-bathroom with a sink and toilet; a laundry room with a clothes washer and clothes drier.
Gardens and grassy areas cover the front and back yard. Our property is 70 feet wide and 150 feet long. Trees and shrubs make the backyard very private, with both sunny and shady areas. The backyard also includes a greenhouse and a workshop/art studio.
In short, we live in a large, quiet and comfortable home. We live a short walk from wilderness but are also near a fascinating city and many other attractions and experiences in Super Natural British Columbia.
