Family of four in four storey, century old character home in East Vancouver with view of Burrard Inlet and North Shore mountains.

Heated floors, in suite laundry, freestanding gas fireplace, all new appliances. Dinner with the family is optional at extra cost. Otherwise you have access to your own kitchen. We are a mostly vegetarian family who love to cook and prepare divinely inspired fresh food. In the summer we grow much of our own produce in our backyard.
One beloved cat also lives with us upstairs but does not have access to garden suite.
There is a fully equipped Pilates studio in our home and MANY musical instruments. Music and movement is our livelihood. We love to travel. English is the main language spoken in our home but we also speak French fluently. In the summer we enjoy eating dinner outside and often invite neighbours at the last minute. We are an active family who do our best to infuse our life with Yoga, Vedic philosophy, and joy.
