If what you'd love is to take a water taxi from downtown Vancouver, (you can come by car too), and then take an easy 45 minute hike in the beauty of nature along Killarney Lake, come up the hill on their property and be welcomed by a beacon of light from your private entrance, shower in the spacious and beautiful bathroom that opens up with sliding doors from an equally peaceful and spacious bedroom with a king size comfy bed, luxuriate in an outdoor hot tub with the utmost privacy, overlooking the misty lake and surrounded by lovely gardens, then this place is for you. We brought our own dinner and the kitchenette more than provided everything we needed to have our romantic meal. Heidi, our lovely host served us a beautiful and delicious gluten-free breakfast of blueberry banana buckwheat pancakes, the yummiest poached egg nested in perfectly crisp bacon, fresh orange juice and tea/coffee. What a peaceful, restful and rejuvenating place to be! We'll be back!
