Our home

This large, bright, ninth floor, southeast facing apartment right on the waterfront of North Vancouver has two big bedrooms and separate den, and enjoys spectacular views over the North Shore mountains and beautiful Burrard Inlet (Vancouver Harbour). The "Seabus" at our door takes us across to the heart of downtown Vancouver in 15 minutes, and the new Canada Line light rapid transit, built for the 2010 Olympics, takes us to the airport in less than an hour, door-to-door. The apartment is fully equipped and secure, with limited access indoor parking and an exercise room/sauna in the building. It also includes a baby grand piano. Next door to the Lonsdale Quay market and other shopping (supermarket, drugstore, liquor store across the street), with excellent restaurants nearby. Hiking trails within walking distance; golf and skiing within a few minutes' drive. An all-year-round place. In addition, we have a studio condo on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, which can be included in an exchange or is available for rental at a modest price.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The waterfront area of North Vancouver is being transformed into a well-designed, planned, environmentally sensitive urban centre, with new apartment complexes, shopping and restaurants. It faces the gorgeous harbour of Vancouver, recently voted by the Economist as the most liveable city in the world and by Conde Nast as the best tourist destination in the Americas. We are surrounded by parks and water, with excellent public transit. The ferry landing for travel to Vancouver Island (Victoria) and other destinations is a 15-minute drive away. We are less than two hours from Whistler Resort, the site of the 2010 Olympics. Summer is best, but winter is fine too: mild and somewhat rainy, but when it is raining here, it is snowing on three nearby ski slopes: 20 minutes' drive from our door.
