New Westminster Home on the River
We are a married couple of 5 years with our own little west coast set up. We are originally from the Toronto area and came to the Vancouver area a few years ago to expand our career, business, and our horizons! We are a young couple in our early 30s that manage our own photography business which often allows us to travel to meet new people and see new places. 2017 brought us to The Okanagan Valley, Vancouver Island, Toronto, London England (and Ontario!), Prague, and Budapest.
We are looking for you to watch over our home and pets with respect while we are away and enjoying your stay!
Our Home & Location
Our home is in a quiet, safe, upscale neighborhood in New Westminster BC. It is approximately 25 minutes to the heart of Vancouver to visit sites such as Gastown, Stanley Park and the Seawall. We are just 10 minutes to downtown New Westminster which has great pubs and restaurants of its own, a great brand new movie theater [with showings of morning movies at half price!] and a River Market at the New Westminster Quay where weekends often bring flea markets, music, delicious food and much more to enjoy. Be absolutely sure to check out "Re-up Southern Barbecue". Your welcome in advance...
The Fraser River, a small community beach, and an amazing boardwalk/trail is right outside our door. The city lights are stunning on an evenings walk. Be sure not to miss them! There is a park directly across the street for leisure activities as well. The park has a wide open grass space, and a covered area for mid day picnics. On any given day you can find friendly local neighborhood people and enjoy friendly conversation. Wildlife is plentiful around here too. Eagle watch in the sky, or spot a wide variety of mammals swimming in the river....
We have a cozy, [and most importantly] very clean home that includes one bedroom with a queen sized bed with luxury bedding, and one bathroom with a stainless steel rain shower head. Our space is nicely sized at approximately 750 square feet with high ceilings and excellent lighting.
Our kitchen includes a stainless steel gas range stove, matching refrigerator, microwave, a garbage disposal sink, dishwasher, and ample space on the granite counter tops for your meal preparation.
The living space includes a gas fire place [excellent for wine nights], a large couch with fluffy pillows, and a retro dish chair for lounging after a nice day of trail walking, or dining out.
We have a large balcony equipped with a Weber barbecue and two muskoka chars. An excellent space for enjoying coffee and brunch. The balcony is surrounded by greenery. Sort of nestled in the trees for added privacy. Enjoy a well weathered New Westminster day, or a cool summers night breeze while settling in with some evening music.
Ah, talking about it makes us happy to be here and excited to share it with you!
We have wall to wall large windows to let in the beautiful daylight, and spectacular views of the area. See the ships pass by on the river, or watch the train pass by right from multiple points of the home! [Don't worry, the noise is minimal]
The home is also set up with in suite laundry, and a building gym with treadmills, bicycles, ellipticals, various weight machines, free weights, as well as a yoga/stretching room. Most of the time it is fairly quiet should you choose to use it. Just perfect for you to keep up a simple routine.
If you have any questions or are interested in a stay with us, feel free to get in touch! + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The responsibilities are fairly straight forward including:
- Pet feedings twice daily
- Walking the dog twice daily (she can handle as much as you can so if you want to do more she will certainly oblige!)
- Litter box attending
- General respect for our home and enjoying your stay!
