About Wayne Chan

Our family stays in 'Serenity' every year as our vacation home. We both have our own businesses and with triplets, we stay busy. So when we decide to take a break, just knowing that we have the home in Lions Bay is amazing. We absolutely love staying there. I've never seen a view as spectacular as the one that we have right on our deck. It's just a terrific place.

Why Wayne Chan chose Vancouver Coast

Several years ago, I had come to Vancouver just to look at some properties with the possibility of finding a place a year or so down the road. We already knew that we loved Vancouver but we weren't quite ready to get a place.

But when we saw this home, we just couldn't pass it up. As I said before, I had never seen a view as spectacular as the one at this home. So, we decided to just go ahead and do it!

An AMAZING weekend away

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I traveled to Vancouver from Seattle for a short weekend away. We happened to pick an incredibly stormy weekend, which you'd think would've "dampened" our experience, but not at all! Serenity was PERFECT. The views are ten times better than can be pictured, and the house is really set up to accommodate your needs. We ended up staying in most of the weekend to avoid the wind and rain, and we had such an amazing time. Lions Bay is beautiful, the house is lovely, and we already can't wait to plan another trip here! Thank you for everything, Wayne!

Absolutely amazing and breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for this house definately do not do it justice at all. The place was absolutely breathtaking. Easy to find everything in the house and plenty of sleeping areas. We had a group of 9 people and everyone got a bed. Definately a relaxing weekend, waking up to the amazing views and quiet neighbourhood.

MDRT Convention

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Vancouver for the MDRT Convention with 5 of my colleagues. We were not interest in staying downtown and came across "Serenity" in Lion's Bay. It was perfect! You will not find a better view. We enjoyed the views from the deck until it cooled off and then we went inside and enjoyed the long leisure sunsets from within. The kitchen and dining area were comfortable. My colleagues thanked me numerous times for booking this property. I would recommend this home to any group traveling to the Vancouver area.

Reunion time

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe our good fortune in finding your beautiful spacious home in Lion's Bay. It's name, "Serenity" was exactly what we found. The beautiful views off your deck, from morning to sunsets were unbelievable. Great place to grill dinner and relax with a glass of wine as we watched the sky change colors like a painting by God. The fireplace, hot tub, plentiful beds and baths, and your bonus room filled with movies, a big screen t v, and lots of games made

this a perfect place for our family of eight. Your location, close to Vancouver, Squamish and Whistler offered many mountain activities to us daily. From kids to Grandma and Grandpa we all had a wonderful time. Wayne, you are an accommodating, gracious host. Thanks for sharing your place with us. I can't imagine a better place to stay.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Serenity. As many other reviews mentioned: the views are stunning. The house is huge. The living room with that massive fireplace and high ceilings is amazing. I think the only thing not as good are the current pictures on this website. (the house is much better than the pics show).

The driveway is steep (otherwise you wouldn't get such amazing views from up there, from the house). But it was manageable to get to the top.

I have no complains about the house. Everything was nice and easy.

If you have any specific concerns, I believe Wayne would try his best to accommodate. So just ask him if you need.

Car: necessary

Twenty minutes north of downtown Vancouver and less than an hour from the world famous resort of Whistler. Lions Bay is a beautiful community overlooking breathtaking views of Howe Sound. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the community's own private beach club, or take a short drive to Stanley Park and bike along the seawall.

Whether you decide to shop at the upscale shops along Robson Street, take a picturesque ride up a sky tram to Grouse Mountain, lounge in the hot tub overlooking the ocean, or play a game of pool in the game room, Vancouver has something for everyone, and 'Serenity' in Lions Bay is the perfect place to stay no matter how busy or relaxed your stay will be.

Other Activities: boating

We definitely want all our guests to have a great time when they stay with Serenity. The only thing we ask is that all guests treat the home with the respect they would have for their own. 99% of all our guests have been wonderful, but on a couple of occasions, guests decided to have blow out parties into the night, damaging the home and disturbing our nice neighbors. No wild parties!
