I grew up in West Van but am now based in the UK and my husband and I and our 3 children stayed in Helena's home on holiday for two weeks. The house is very spacious, clean and airy and even prettier than the photos. There is a lot of natural light from several large windows which also allow an amazing view of Bowen Island. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the showers are great and the beds are very comfortable. Helena was really welcoming, helpful and accommodating and I really cannot fault anything. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood near the golf course and the area is perfect for running and cycling. It is also an ideal base for getting to the BC Ferries, Squamish, or Whistler. I recommend this house for anyone who wants a relaxing and comfortable holiday and the chance to explore the North Shore. I truly felt at home in Helena's house. 2. This lovely home comfortably accommodated 5 adults and 2 children. Everyone enjoyed their stay in this welcoming, eclectic, conveniently located house. The patios and garden spaces added to the charm. We would definitely book this vacation rental again without hesitation, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing environment. 3. We had an absolutely amazing time here! There is access to Horseshoe bay in a 3 minute drive as well as many hikes and great restaurants close by. The property and home was fantastic and the photos don't do it justice, as the views from the deck and porch are INCREDIBLE! We were a group of 6 and would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in West Vancouver. I can't wait to go back, thank you Helena!!! 4. We as a family were very happy to be able to spend a few days at Helena's home in the area of Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver BC. We were attending a family wedding in the area and, staying at the house, allowed us to stay together as a family and visit, instead of the alternative of staying in separate hotel rooms in the area. The house is very close to the village and within a 10 min walk or a 5 min drive, to the very spectacularly scenic townsite of Horseshoe Bay,where there are some very popular restaurants for breakfast, as well as lunch & evening dining. Also, close to the BC Ferry terminal, and the fantastically scenic, Sea to Sky hwy. The house is not new, but renovated and bright and is easy to find and is situated in a stately well tread neighbourhood. Upstairs, it has lovely views from 2 rooms. We found it very comfortable and we had plenty of room for our family who used both bedrooms, both full bathrooms and the upstairs den. The master bedroom bed was extremely comfortable and clean. The house has 2 decks which are very private so in the summer, it would be a nice place to sit and visit on a sunny day. We were very happy Helena was so accommodating for us at this time and it helped to bring our family together, create happy memories, reduce our stress during this time period. I would definitely stay here again. 5. From the moment we arrived we were very impressed with the property. It was furnished beautifully and comfortably with all the amenities you could need.The view of Horseshoe Bay was fantastic even during the cloudy/rainy days. It is an easy walk to the shops and ferries.Thank you Helena for making your home available to us - by the end of the trip we were wishing it was our home!____

Home away from home
This house was a great place to stay, very clean, secure and close to all amenities. We stayed in the winter and the house was always warm and cosy (no cold drafts coming through). A big plus for me was the washing machine. The house is a generous size and gave us ample space to spread out after using hotel rooms for 3 weeks. Helena the host is a lovely lady who was very easy to deal with and always willing to answer any questions we had. It really is a home away from home. It's not a very far drive to Downtown Vancouver at all, and an easy base to go to the snow fields also.

Charming, cozy rental home with coastal view. Just perfect!
This was a gem of a find for our Christmas stay in West Vancouver. It has lots of space, is full of character and has a wonderful quiet location set above Horseshoe Bay. The garden areas surrounding the property give lots of privacy and every window has a pretty aspect. We absolutely adored the place and didn’t really want to leave.

Fantastic stay in a beautiful home
We stayed in a beautiful home situated in a quite pocket of Horshoe Bay. Views were spectacular and house was cosy and clean. We loved our stay here and hope to one day return again - highly recommend it.

Stunning location, fantastic views and a beautifully eclectic home!
We stayed at this property for a week. Everything was fantastic. It's ideally located at a place which is convenient for driving to Whistler or downtown Vancouver; there's also a bus service that runs to Vancouver / Horseshoe Bay. We would definitely recommend staying there and would enjoy visiting should we visit Vancouver again.

This property was perfect. You couldn't beat the views of Horse Shoe Bay. It is an older home for sure but clean and very quiet. The location was perfect for travelling to Whistler, etc. And the drive down Marine Drive was beautiful and slower pace than the busy highway. You can drive down Marine Drive to a huge shopping area that had everything you needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Vancouver and looking forward to doing it again next year. Would definitely request this property again. Thanks Helena.

Lovely Home
We had a great stay with wonderful views from the upstairs windows of Horseshoe bay. Great quiet location with fantastic road links to all the major destinations. We hired a car that I think is essential for this out of town location. Lovely host who thought of everything to let us have a hassle free stay :).

amazing views
Had an amazing week in this beautiful house leading up to my wedding day. The house had great light for my 'getting ready' photos. Lots of interesting art work and bits and bobs to look at, found something new every day! Lovely neighborhood and only a short walk to the restaurants in horseshoe bay. The short but steep hill on the way back provided my daily cardio! but worth it for the views from the house which were amazing, the perfect first impression to introduce my friends to Vancouver. Lots of space inside and out. Beautiful gardens with veiws. Handy for Downtown, Whistler and ferries.

Great place, nice view
We truly enjoyed staying here, in this charming old house. Loved the outdoor area with fire pit and great view. We spent several evenings outside by the fire. This place was perfect for us. Not too far (40 min) from Squamish, and only 15 minutes to Vancouver. Whytecliff park nearby, and nice dining in Horseshoe bay, 3 minutes away. Owner was very serviceminded and friendly.
