Best Vancouver location, 3 bedrooms, near everything

We live in a quiet area with single family homes and friendly neighbours, five minutes (walking) from the beach, three minutes (walking) to excellent public transit, three minutes (walking) from shopping, ten minutes (driving) to downtown. We regularly ski at Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, which are a 2 hour drive north.
We have two young grandchildren (5 and 2) who visit often, so have lots of toys, booster seats, etc (no crib, however).
The backyard is not completely fenced (ie a dog could escape) but private.
We have bicycles in the 2-car garage, plus a car that could be used (Honda Fit).
We have 2 smart TVs with PVRs and extensive cable channel selection. Blu-ray players as well.

The kitchen is fully stocked with mixer, food processor, toaster oven, dishwasher, fridge, stove and oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, bread maker, slow cooker, immersion blender, microwave, and more.

About Our Family

We are a retired couple in our early 60s. We like to hike (via Ferrata fanatics!), cycle, walk, downhill ski, go to restaurants, and generally enjoy the outdoors. We have young grandchildren so our home has lots of toys, booster seats, strollers, etc. (however no crib).

Lifestyle

We are an active older (early sixties) couple who love to get outdoors. Our home is perfect for this as it is situated close to many kilometres of cycle paths, excellent beach and city walking, and 2 golf courses.
