Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We are located in Cove Cliff, which is on Vancouver's North Shore, a half mile west of the village of Deep Cove. It's a friendly, safe, walkable neighborhood where you are likely to bump into people who have lived here their whole lives. Mention you're staying in the house on Strathcona with the big porch and you will probably hear a story or two. It's heaven for outdoor activity lovers - a mountain biking mecca, great paddleboarding and kayaking, beautiful walks and hiking, great golf courses and just 90 minutes from Whistler Creekside for awesome downhill skiing.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our house it's a one minute walk to waters edge for fantastic sight seeing, paddle boarding and kayaking. We are 15 minutes from the village of Deep Cove which has interesting cafe's, restaurants, shops and galleries, and a community theater. The Raven Pub is a 10 minute walk away. The North Shore is mountain biking mecca, and there are several great walks and hikes nearby. For golfers, we have some great daily fee courses and some world-class private courses a short drive away. For skiers, Whistler is a breathtaking 90 minute drive away, and our local mountain, Mt. Seymour, is great fun for young kids.
