A home away from home. Everything you need.
Graeme and Helga have thought of everything for the perfect getaway. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. It was wonderful to have plastic food wrap, salt, oil, and spices on hand. We were relieved to find beach towels too as we did not have room to pack any. Their binoculars were a treat to use on the perfect deck with a great view.
They were friendly and very helpful making our stay as enjoyable as possible.

One of the finest places I've ever stayed. ( and the hosts matched that standard of excellence )

Superb location, beautiful view with easy access to promenade. The kitchen was very well equipped , and enough food provided for many breakfasts. Helga's home made cookies were a real treat! The most positive part was Graeme and Helga being very flexible , accommodating and helpful in many situations, they are amazing hosts. I would like to return and most certainly would recommend this place to others.

This is an absolutely perfect place to stay if you're coming to the Vancouver area. We like to divide our time between the city and beautiful countryside around Vancouver, and the location makes it easy to get around, an easy drive to Vancouver but surrounded by fabulous ocean and island views. The suite is comfortable and has everything you would want, and the view is spectacular. It's a short walk down to the beach at White Rock (though longer walking up the hill) and there is a nice park nearby for evening walks. Our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating. We arrived tired after a long day of traveling from Philadelphia, and were amazed and delighted to find not only freshly baked chocolate chip cookies but a kitchen stocked with fresh bread, home-made jams, cereal, eggs, juice, milk -- everything we could want for breakfast (and in our case, for dinner too). A great home away from home. We will definitely be back next time we are in Vancouver!

perfect getaway home from home. Graham and Helga had everything we needed from bread and milk to fresh from the oven cookies. Stunning views from the private veranda and only 2 minutes from the beach. Felt right at home as soon as we arrived and really sad to leave. Hoping to come back soon as we have whale watching vouchers to redeem

We have rented for a month for the last four years in White Rock, and this suite is by far the best we have had. The location and view of the ocean is fabulous, with a beautiful covered patio, garden and barbecue area. It is minutes from the beach where you can walk the boardwalk and pier for three miles. Graham and Helga are most gratuitous hosts and will do anything for you to make your stay great. There is everything you could ever need contained in the suite. We will definitely try to stay here if we come again

We absolutely loved our stay! It was a perfect getaway for a couple of local people! With temperatures at the beach in the mid to high 20s - that beautiful, breezy covered terrace was absolute Heaven. Ocean air and beautiful view. Graeme and Helga are both such very nice people and the suite had everything we needed - I loved the kitchen. My husband loved being greeted with warm cookies! The suite is so unbelievably well stocked - everything we needed! We will remember our stay and certainly hope to be back!

Loved our vacation at White Rock. We felt so at home at this vacation rental. It was perfect in every way. Clean beautiful, close to the beach, quiet and private, comfortable bed, and welcoming hosts. I will be returning next year. Can't wait!

We loved this suite! It's a beautiful comfortable clean "has everything place" with a grand water view day and night from inside and out on the deck. A perfect spot to retreat to in White Rock. The Hosts Graeme and Helga were very nice, greeted us with delicious warm cookies, left us fruit, eggs, milk, bread, OJ and more, very thoughtful and kind! We loved walking to town, the beach, and park daily. A perfect find for us as we have relatives in the area and hope to return. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Gorgeous views of the ocean, extremely clean and inviting, gracious hosts. This property is in a quiet part of town, but is also close to the beach and boardwalk.

While our native Ontario was in a deep freeze this January and February 2015, we were basking in White Rock's unique climate. We were so fortunate to have discovered Helga & Graeme's attractive, comfortable, well equipped Sea View Hideaway. Perfect location with green grass, majestic trees and buds ready to burst and daily visits from humming birds. View from the large deck included the sea, White Rock pier, Gulf Islands & Mount Baker, at night "magical" with twinkling lights and reflection across the water. We felt privileged & blessed to have spent two months at this hideaway where our every wish and need was provided by the generous Farquharsons. We look forward to returning in 2016.
