Large Furnished House for rent during sabbatical – Commercial Drive area

LARGE FURNISHED HOUSE FOR RENT DURING OUR SABBATICAL (between mid-December 2016 and MAY 2017)

We have a 1912 three-story character home with hardwood floors and a large lovely backyard. The house has 5 bedrooms, and a children’s play area downstairs with a plasma-screen TV with an X-box.

Our Street: Very friendly and welcoming. We are adjacent to a lovely small park, which serves as the local gathering place. It’s an ideal place for your children to connect with Canadian kids.

Our Neighbourhood: The Commercial Drive area is one of Vancouver’s best and features a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, bakeries, delis, boutiques, and lots of street life.

Our City: Tons to do year round: We are a ten minute walk from the Skytrain station (the ride downtown takes fewer than ten minutes); a fifty minute drive from the ferry to the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island (Victoria); a thirty minute drive from excellent skiing and hiking on the North Shore mountains and a fifteen to twenty minute drive from the beach and Stanley Park; a two and half hour drive to Seattle; a two and a half hour drive to Whistler-Blackcomb and Mount Baker.
We are a cycling family and have bikes to offer as well.
We are a bilingual (French/English) family. We speak some Spanish and German.
