  • Description


    We’re a fun family of 5 with children aged 10, 8 and 4. One of us is a Doctor and the other a part time church minister. We live a full on, active life on the picturesque north shore of Vancouver with beautiful views of the city and the ocean. We are ideally situated to get a true feel of Vancouver; 15 minutes drive from the nearest ski mountain and all the activities that are possible there, 10 minutes walk from the beach and a short drive away from the city.
