Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This family home is a very comfortable and attractive 3 story house overlooking the North Shore mountains and Howe Sound. It's located on Bowen Island - a gorgeous island getaway a 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. Note, this is an otherwise owner-occupied home, set up to be accommodate visiting guests. At this time I feel I need to require that guests are vaccinated for Covid 19.

The space
If there are members of your group with mobility issues note that there are a lot of stairs on my property, both to access the house and within the house.

Though the home can accommodate a number of people - it is NOT a party house. It is best suited to mature adults (in behaviour, not necessarily age!) and families. This is very important for prospective renters to understand as respecting my neighbours is important for my ability to share my home on airbnb. So if you're looking for a place to hang with friends on the deck till the wee hours - my home is not suited to that.

The top floor has a front balcony, a back deck, kitchen, living area, dining area, bedroom (queen bed) and bathroom. The middle floor has a bedroom (queen bed), bathroom and living room/office/den with a pull out queen sofa bed, and a a deck off that room. The bottom floor is a large studio with a double bed. All the floors share the stunning view. There is a very comfortable couch in each living room and sleeping foam mats with plenty of bedding for extras. The 2 decks, a balcony, and 2 fish ponds provide lovely outdoor spaces.

It's the perfect combination of being surrounded by nature, and yet having foot and car access to pretty much anything you'd want to do within a matter of a few minutes.

There is a bus and a taxi that runs to and from the ferry and throughout the island.

*Note for Covid concerns: I am the only one residing in the house, and I am maintaining all protective protocols. My cleaning requirements are very thorough, but also, my guests would never be staying immediately following other guests. There is always a minimum of a 3 day gap on top of my increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Guests are expected to respect the safety of the community and wear masks in stores, and practice safe social distancing outside of the home. THANKS!

I'm a touring musician based on BC Coast. Formerly from the SF Bay Area, I love how airbnb allows us to open our home to people from around the world and sincerely enjoy both hosting and staying at airbnb's when I tour.

During your stay

I will arrange for access to the home and be a phone call away but will not be on the premises.
