Om Dette Opslag
Our living room is not only roomy but has lots of natural light and lots of windows for fresh air.
We strive to create a place that is very clean, comfortable and welcoming. So that you can melt and feel special. In 2014, we have updated the kitchen for your enjoyment and in 2015 we just bought a new couch big enough for 2 to lounge in comfort.
Welcome to your home getaway,
We have been a part of this great company and its staffs for a while now and love renting the special space called home to our guests.
When you stay on the North Shore of Vancouver: lower Lonsdale.You are literally steps away from the bustling, eclectic dynamic Lower Lonsdale lifestyle and coming home to rest in a very quiet and private building.
Minutes away from 3 local Mountains: Cypress - Seymour and Grouse Mountains. Buses or Shuttles to get to the hills are 2 to 4 blocks away.
For those who are unfamiliar, Lower Lonsdale is a hilly street starting from the water that separates downtown Vancouver from North Vancouver with a scenic 12 minute ferry ride. The street stretches straight up to the foothills of the North Shore's mountains. Perfect for enjoying both the energy of city life and the many outdoor activities just minutes away.
You will stay amongst the diverse shops, tons of intriguing ethnic restaurants, and day-to-day services, bars, local pubs, grocery stores, yet there is a tranquility that makes it feel like you are in another world. It's like having the best of all worlds. The neighbourhood is both safe and clean.
What to do in our hood? within 2 blocks of the condo you will enjoy both live theatre and movie theatres, a bowling alley, community centre with fitness classes and gym, yoga studios, a private walk on the beautiful marina seawall, parks, Lonsdale Quay market: its fresh food and art-craft boutiques. You can take one of the many buses within 2 blocks which will drop you off to experience our legendary North Shore hiking trails at Capilano Suspension bridge, the Hatchery or Lynn Canyon Valley. Let's not forget our killer Grouse Grind at Grouse Mountain if you feel up to it!
Your hosts: Veronique and Amir

I always make myself available to answer any questions they have before they fly to Vancouver and have a big growing lists of all that I love to do in my city indoor and outdoor. I welcome them myself and show them the apartment and where things are in the building and give then my phone number. After that most of my guests are on the go non-stop so I just check in by phone within a few days to ensure that all is perfect.
Lower Lonsdale is cool there is enough to do and see. Lots of good affordable restaurants and boutiques to trot by. It is safe, easy to park and quiet. Clean streets. There is very little beggars which is a real treat once you spend the day visiting downtown and other hoods.

Véronique est une hôte remarquable : dès nos premiers contacts sur Airbnb, elle a toujours été disponible et réactive à toutes nos sollicitations.
De plus, Véronique parle très bien le Français, ce qui a été pour nous une facilité appréciable !
L'accueil qu'elle nous a réservé sur place a été très cordial et plein de bonne humeur.
Pendant tout notre séjour, Véronique est restée disponible.
L'appartement est impeccable : douillet, très bien équipé, très fonctionnel et confortable et nous nous y sommes sentis 'comme chez nous'.
Le petit balcon est impeccable pour prendre ses repas à l'extérieur dans un environnement calme.
Par ailleurs l'appartement est très bien situé : au calme mais proche des commerces (marché, magasins d'alimentation, petits supermarchés, restaurants, location de voiture...).
Le centre ville de Vancouver est à 15' par le Seabus qui lui même est à 10' à pied de l'appartement (très belle vue sur Vancouver).
Enfin, l'appartement est très bien situé en tant que point de départ pour faire de nombreuses excursions :Lighthouse Park, Horseshoe Bay, Bowen Island, Whistler, Grouse Mountain, Deep Cove, Lynn Canyon Park etc.....
Il y a un bon réseau de bus pour aller quasiment partout mais nous avons loué une voiture chez Avis (5' à pied) que nous avons pu stationner sur un emplacement réservé dans le garage privé de l'immeuble pendant tout le séjour.
En résumé, une hôte d'une gentillesse et d'une disponibilité remarquable, un appartement tout confort et très bien situé : une adresse à recommander sans réserve !
In summary and in English : Veronique is an outstanding host and the apartment is fabulous.
We would really love to stay here again and we highly recommend this address !
Veronique and Amir were just amazing people. The condo was very convinience and cozy. The location was great because you could go to the seabus stop very easily and there were a lot of unexpensive stores around the apartement, and it was also very silent so you could relax and have a great day with just staying in the condo. The balcony was really nice cause we could have breakfast there early in the morning to freshen up! The bathroom was one of the best things about the condo because you could have a relaxing time alone in the deep bath with some candles and aroma. We recieved a lot of advice from Veronique and Amir which was super kind of them that we would really love to stay here again.
Veronique and Amir are wonderful people. They are very friendly and helpful.
The condo was absolutely fabulous. The size is perfect for two adults. The balcony was a great place to spend the mornings and evenings. The place has all the equipment you will need.
The location was great too, the shops are only a short distance away and the seabus is less than 5 minutes away, The journey to the main part of the city was short and inexpensive ( a short hop on the seabus, with a great scenic view )
Om værten, Veronique
I love entertaining and hosting. That is why having you enjoy my lovely space through Airbnb works so well. I see it as an opportunity to share with you my love for decor, home, traveling, people and details. I prepare my home and create a sacred space for you to relax into. I believe it starts with a clean home from ceiling to floors. I always enjoy hearing the first positive impression from a guest entering the condo.
I believe a clean home offers the perfect environment for one to relax in, and for the mind to relax. My home has become my sanctuary. I am honoured to share it with you.
