English Bay, Vancouver, BC

West was Always best

The West End was the city’s first truly opulent neighbourhood. Imagine a place where residents played leisurely games of badminton on the lawns of grand Victorian mansions or splashed at the ocean’s edge, chilled cocktails in hand, and you’ve got the right idea.

Today, the sophistication and recreation of the past continues in the lifestyle at Mirabel. Paddle the shoreline with the playful harbour seals. Inhale the invigorating scent of Stanley Park’s wooded trails. Pick farm-fresh veggies from the colourful wooden crates outside the neighbourhood markets. Watch live musical theatre in the Park. Or sip and socialize on a different patio every day of the week before enjoying the easy walk back home. And the sand. Make sure to walk barefoot on this sand as often as you can.
