About Joel Gibson

Both my wife and I are educators and enjoy spending time with our 2 boys and baby girl. We live a healthy, busy active lifestyle.

Joel Gibson purchased this house in 2006

Why Joel Gibson chose North Vancouver

Private home nestled in the mountains yet only 15min from downtown Vancouver. We love this area because my wife grew up here as a child and we want our kids to do the same

What makes this house unique

Central air conditioning and a crystal clear river to swim in steps away on hot days.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean, very well supplied in terms of cooking supplies, fit 2 families easily. The kids loved the toy room, unfortunately we couldn't use the backyard due to rain. Otherwise would recommend highly.

Excellent location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Joel was very accommodating and reached out to ensure our stay was pleasant and what we had expected. The home was very clean and and comfortable for our families during the stay. Lots of room for the kids to burn off some energy and the back yard was perfect for active kids.

All in all, our stay was very positive and we wouldn't hesitate to return and recommend to other families looking at a North Van location. Thanks for sharing your home Joel!!

Family of 5 (2, 5 and under) over the Christmas break - would def stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this quiet home. Very comfortable beds (I'd like the same at home) and we used the hot-tub daily. Perfectly equipped for our kids, with a more than ample number of toys and kid friendly dishes to use. Very communicative host was a pleasure to deal with. Will stay again and highly recommend!

Great house.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want in a weekend get away home. We are all from big cites so we didn't realize how quite the neighborhood is. The cops came by 830 the first night and admitted that they could even hear us from outside so they were unsure why they were needed. Owner was cool about. great turf to play soccer in the back yard.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Great place in North Vancouver. We checked in late with no problems, instructions were easy to follow. Nicely maintained, with very little wear. Master bedroom was comfortable with a handy hot tub outside. Other bedrooms were good. Grandchildren loved the bunkbeds. Murphy bed in lower recreation room was just okay, nothing special. Very nice view from living area and kitchen. Deck over garage was a great place for all of us to gather and eat. Children's play area was amazing! From drawer after drawer of toys, cards ...etc to the family photo albums. My grandson loved the dinosaur suit he put on. The garage had some neat riding toys, but be careful of the steep driveway. Driveway was very steep and we mostly parked on the street. Backyard was great for playing with all the sports toys. Artificial turf everywhere in the front and back yards was different, but it worked. Location was good with easy access to Superstore. Many fast food shops in the area. Recycling requirements were much different from what we were used to, but Joel had set out detailed instructions and it was no problem. Our only downside was that the multiple elevations were not appropriate for my wife who is visual impaired and has a leg problem. Main stairs were ok, but the short set of stairs to the bedrooms were too unsafe for my wife to sleep upstairs. Could use handrails to improve usability. We and a good view of the partial solar eclipse from the backyard. Wish we had more than two nights, so we could have explored more of the Vancouver area.

Pros: Great house for familys, children will love the play areas. Good location for exploring Vancouver area and the mountains.

Cons: Needs hand rail on short steps to bedrooms.

We would stay here again!
