Our West Vancouver property, Shorewood Manor, is nestled between two of the most popular and vibrant West Van communities, Ambleside and Dundarave.
The Ambleside neighbourhood is home to many local businesses and is the central hub of West Vancouver. You’ll find a variety of restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and services of all kinds dotted along and near the main Marine Drive thoroughfare. On Ambleside’s eastern edge is the tony Park Royal Shopping Centre, offering an open-air shopping experience and nearly 300 shops and services.
Dundarave sits to the west of our Shorewood Manor rental building. This quaint, charming village is filled with local shops, cafés, restaurants and several sandy and rocky beach areas. Quieter than Ambleside, it has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Dundarave Park is a favourite place to watch the ocean waves or take in a stunning west coast sunset.
As West Vancouver is a waterfront community, the ocean plays an integral role in the local lifestyle. Ambleside Park is lined with sandy beaches that are popular for swimming and sailing. John Lawson Park is another favourite a short walk from Shorewood Manor. Alongside the beaches are large green spaces, perfect for picnicking, playing sports, walking or relaxing. In the summertime, Ambleside’s music and cultural festivals create a lively and fun community atmosphere.
The seawall runs along the ocean from Lion’s Gate Bridge through Ambleside and Dundarave Village. Just steps from Shorewood Manor, this wide, flat, paved pathway offers spectacular views of Stanley Park, Lion’s Gate Bridge and the Vancouver skyline. It’s a favourite place for our Shorewood Manor residents to spend time strolling or jogging.
