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.
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 party with friends on the deck till the wee hours - you should find a place better suited.
The preferred maximum is 6 people, but I have put 8 to convey that it is comfortably do-able.
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. Note, the house works best for guests who don't mind stairs :-).
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.

Top two rules:
Have a GREAT time, and don't burn the house down. :-)
Okay, more seriously…
The is well suited to couples and families and friends looking for a quiet time to relax and enjoy Bowen Island's beauty. No smoking and prefer no pets (though dogs may be allowed under certain circumstances).
The sound travels very easily at night so it is imperative that guests respect the fact that they MUST bring their visiting and activities inside by 10 pm. If you think this is going to compromise your ability to enjoy yourselves or that it need not be respected, my house would not be the best choice for you, as ignoring it will threaten my ability to rent on airbnb and make me lose my faith in humanity - neither of which you'll want on your conscience. If you'll have no problem abiding by that then you will thoroughly enjoy your visit
Kids are fine but know that the house is not childproof, so vigilance is necessary for their safety. (There are stairs leading from the top floor without a gate, and breakables etc. within reach.) If you have children I trust you would ensure their safety and that they won't damage the house or furniture.
It's not a fussy home - but I do assume it will be treated with respect and left as you would wish a guest would leave yours.
I can promise you will have a wonderful time here!
