A Word From Your HostsHugh, Georgia and Shelby Humphries
We have truly enjoyed sharing our wonderful home with our guests since 1990. This is evident in our light, easy atmosphere of a comfortable "home away from home". We pride ourselves on creating an environment where people can instantly relax and feel at home, as if visiting friends or family. We strive to assist our guests with those little details that often complicate travel plans (free luggage storage, laundry services, assistance with special needs, etc.).
For our academic or business travellers, our WIFI is available throughout the guest house. Also, we are always happy to provide maps and information about our local amenities and attractions.
Come and meet our great four-legged friend, Shelby. He is our Lhasa Apso/Poodle cross (weighing in at 10 kg or 22 lbs). His job is to welcome our guests and to make them feel like they are visiting family. If you like dogs you will love him.

University of BCBotanical Gardens, Museums, Wildlife & Art!
Distance: 8 - 12 min drive
The University of British Columbia was rated by the Huffington Post as one of Canada's most beautiful universities! While it's world renown for its amazing educational offerings, visitors of Vancouver often enjoy its botanical gardens, numerous museums and stunning hiking trails!
When you stay at Point Grey Guest House, you are no more than a 15 - 20 minute drive away from the heart of downtown Vancouver! Enjoy our beautiful city during the day, then escape the bustling city to our little getaway in the evenings. Vancouver is famous for its mountainous scenery, rich cultural diversity, world class restaurants and active lifestyle!
When people think of Vancouver, they immediately think of mountains and our world famous Stanley Park. This beautiful, 1001 acre wildlife preserve is full of hiking paths, ocean views and a wide variety of attractions, including the non-profit Vancouver Aquarium, the peaceful Teahouse and the family-favourite Stanley Park Train.
The Gastown district is one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods, but it's also one of the most unique! Left in its original, heritage style, you can watch the iconic Steam Clock, with its whistle, chiming in full display and admire the cobble stone roadways, while ejoying a beer at Steamworks Brewery or dining at one of the many acclaimed restaurants in the neighbourhood. Maybe after, you might want to go check out the statue of Gastown's founder, Gassy Jack? Or, maybe you'll want to try some award-winning gelato from Bella Gelateria & Gelato? If it's excitement you're after, then try out the thrilling 4D experience of Fly Over Canada!
No matter what the season, Grouse Mountain makes for a great day trip! In the summer, the Grouse Grind provides visitors with a challenging but beautiful hike up the mountain, with spectacular views and plenty of rest areas along the way. If hiking isn't your thing, though, then consider taking the Skyride to the top and enjoy some fine dining or explore the wildlife! During the winter, Grouse Mountain offers some great skiing! However, that's certainly only the start of what this spectacular mountain by the city has to offer.
It's always good to learn something new every day but, at Telus Science World, get ready to learn lots! They have a constant influx of great exhibits and most of them are interactive learning to get people involved and teach them all about the world around them. The building's unique shape is actually its massive OMNIMAX Theatre! Catch any movie on that screen and you'll leave awe-inspired by the immersive experience!
"Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver’s horticultural jewel, is a major draw for floral display enthusiasts and view-seekers, and as a popular backdrop for wedding photos. At 152 metres above sea level, it’s the highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the park, city, and mountains on the North Shore.
The 52-hectare park is home to the stunning Bloedel Conservatory. There is also a gorgeously landscaped quarry garden, the arboretum with its collection of exotic and native trees, sculptures including one by internationally renowned artist Henry Moore, and diverse recreational offerings such as tennis, lawn bowling and pitch & putt. The park is also the perfect setting for fine dining at Seasons in the Park, a picnic or stargazing!"
"The Vancouver International Children’s Festival Society presents contemporary, inter-disciplinary arts including performance and interactive arts activities that speak to the various ages of [their] audience. [Their] inclusive programming is culturally diverse and representative of regional, national and international artists.
The first of its kind in North America, the Vancouver International Children’s Festival began as a theatre festival for young audiences presenting international performances. Today the Festival is multi-disciplinary presenting theatre, music, dance, circus, puppetry and storytelling and over the years has been an inspiration to major cities throughout Canada and abroad, where annual children’s festivals now take place!
"The story of Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is the story of determination, passion, idealism, community, and of course, music. Founded in 1985 and incorporated in 1986, as a community based, not-for-profit, charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia, the society, from the very beginning, has worked diligently to establish Vancouver as a centre for the creation and exchange of sounds and ideas between the local, national and international music communities.
[Their] mission is to not only increase the appreciation of the music, but to strengthen the arts community by developing special projects, artistic exchanges, partnerships, educational initiatives, community programs, and collaborations that further the art form. [Their] vision encompasses a wide spectrum of jazz, blues, world, creative, and improvised music, including evolving forms of jazz and the technologies and media that influence jazz as an art form."
The Celebration of Lights is truly a spectical of global proportions! A 3-night competition, where each country's team displays their elaborate firework show set to a musical accompaniment! If you happen to be in town during those days, Jericho Beach near Point Grey Guest House is a popular place to watch them!
Do you like awesome movies? Want to watch a movie under the stars? Well, then the Fresh Air Cinema in Stanley Park is for you! Tuesday nights, throughout the summer, people gather in the park with their blankets, snacks (or you can buy some there), and friends to watch AAA movies projected on a massive outdoor screen. Definitely a good time!
"Both in terms of admissions and number of films screened (144,000 and 349 respectively in 2014) the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) is among the five largest film festivals in North America. [They] screen films from more than 70 countries on nine screens, including the pick of the world’s top film fests and many undiscovered gems.
Three main programming platforms make our festival unique: [they] screen one of the largest selections of East Asian films outside of that region, [they] are one of the biggest showcases of Canadian film in the world and... have a large and vibrant nonfiction program.
Attracting a large, attentive and enthusiastic audience the festival remains accessible, friendly and culturally diverse. As the critics say, VIFF is very much a festival 'designed for the benefit of people who love films and people who make them.'"
Are you a thrill-seeker or lover of haunted houses? Well, you'll get a real chill from the Fright Nights, where Playland is converted into a series of ghastly haunted houses and where costumed actors spend the night scaring you silly! Grab yourself some snacks, ride some of the attractions and test your nerve with the themed haunted houses.
Look for your tickets at the 7-11 convenience store, because they usually end up being cheaper there. Definitely not recommended for ages 12 and under, seniors 65+, people with sensitivity to strobe lighting, people with high blood pressure, heart conditions, pregnant women or easily scaredy cats. Absolutely no guest costumes are allowed.
"This authentic German-inspired Vancouver Christmas Market creates the perfect atmosphere to mix and mingle with friends and family, take in a quick drink after work or do lunch, and take in a wide variety of cultural activities and entertainment.
During your visit to the Vancouver Christmas Market you’ll experience our mix of traditional food and beverage, as well as our selection of authentic wood carvings and toys, knitted goods, nutcrackers, pottery and other unique gifts. Explore our Kids Activities and ride downtown Vancouver’s only Christmas Carousel."

"The Vancouver International Wine Festival, Canada's premier food & wine event, has three mandates: to provide an informative, educational and entertaining wine experience for public and trade; to be a premier marketing opportunity for the wine industry and festival partners; and to raise funds for the Bard on the Beach Theatre Society.
In 1996, VanWineFest began shining the spotlight on specific wine regions by featuring a new theme region or country each year, with the French wine region Bordeaux being the inaugural theme. In 2016, the theme country will be Italy. Starting in 2004, VanWineFest highlighted an annual global focus, with Syrah+Shiraz as the focus in 2015 (harking back to the first global focus, Syrah/Shiraz).
Today VanWineFest attracts some of the biggest industry names from around the world and is firmly established as the continent's premier wine event and among the biggest, best and oldest wine events in the world. It features wine tastings and pairings, gourmet dinners and luncheons, educational seminars and culinary competitions."
