Welcome to my new property! I have moved locations and am now proud to offer a stay at The Secret Garden Treehouse to friends new and old from around the world. My previous location received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in 2018 and I am now offering the same level of comfort, cleanliness and hospitality enjoyed by over 400 parties in the past six years. The Secret Garden Treehouse is a family-friendly vacation hideaway. This two-bedroom ground-level suite is located in a safe, quiet neighbourhood at the top of Lonsdale, and offers a panoramic view of the glittering Vancouver cityscape and the Lion’s Gate Bridge. Watch sunrise or sunset from the private deck. Unwind in the treehouse. Be enveloped by the silence and solitude of nature that surrounds this treed property. Tak...Welcome to my new property!

Interaction with guests
I live upstairs - no pets except for my young grandaughters who drop in from time to time. I like to be home when guests arrive to give the keys and show them around. If I'm not I leave a key out with instructions by text or email prior to guest arrival. I always check in with guests in person after the first night if I'm in town, otherwise by phone. Everyone who books is sent a list of restaurants nearby; day trips of interest that are off the beaten track; hiking trails in the area; anything of interest i.e. international fireworks dates, etc. Guests text or phone me if needed or just come up and ring the doorbell.

What a magical place! 1482496 on VRBO. Whimsical and luxurious at the same time, and well situated in the city. Your best bargain for a memorable time to take in the beauties of this special place. We were in the throes of relocation, worn out...More

About the neighbourhood
See main description. Very quiet and peaceful yet close to downtown; many shops and restaurants on Lonsdale. Close to Lynn Canyon; Capilano Canyon; Seabus to downtown; Stanley Park.
Getting around
Most guests take the Seabus to downtown and then take various tours to see Granville Island, the beaches, university area, etc. Others drive up to Whistler or go white water rafting in Squamish by car. The bus stop is a 2 or 3 minute walk and goes to Lonsdale Quay which is the major bus hub for North Van and also the Seabus terminal. I recommend a car if guests are here for more than three days and want to get in a lot of sightseeing. Some guests just want to hang out in the trees and relax and in that case anywhere local is about a $10 cab ride.
