The Space

Important information to know before booking:

1. Our tiny home is not your typical guest house rental! It is a small space in a very quiet, family-oriented rural neighbourhood. Our neighbours are some of our best friends and respecting the space is a must. CRVBasecamp is a space to hang your hat at night while escaping to the mountains during the day. It's not a great space for more than a couple people to enjoy.

As this is a rural neighborhood, expect to experience movement starting relatively early in the morning. Generally this doesn't happen much before 9am, but often lawns get mowed, engines get mechanic'd, and vehicles get started. We are extremely thankful that our neighbors are accepting of a vacation rental that invites traveling folks into the neighborhood and as such, we don't make any waves about early morning noise. It's a tradeoff that we're willing to make and something you need to know prior to booking. Perfect if you're planning on being up somewhat early to head out adventuring anyway.


2. There is a composting toilet. This is probably the most important part of your stay! It’s also something that is not at all common and you might have to adjust your thinking a bit in order to get comfortable with it. Really, it’s kinda like glamping!

That said...

Comfortably accommodates 2 adults or 2 adults and 1 child. CRVBasecamp is a tiny home that is perfect for people who plan on using the space as a launch pad while experiencing the best of the Chilliwack River Valley.

Custom built by Vancouver craftsmen, our tiny house gives a nod to minimalistic living, yet with all the comforts needed to truly enjoy your stay.

Guest Access

As a guest we would love you to enjoy our property with us. The space is very much entrenched in the sharing economy - the tiny house is in the back out behind the main house and the yard is shared.

You have a separate-entrance, private cabin all to yourself + a large backyard & firepit for you to enjoy.

Interaction with Guests

We are a busy family but will make every effort wherever we can in order to visit with guests and give advice on local activities. Sometimes we can just relax and visit, and sometimes we're running to and fro just trying to make sure our kids grow up to become stellar human beings.

We created this space as a way of meeting new and amazing people from all over the world. Our intent is to find a balance between getting to know you and giving you the space and privacy you want.

Want to hang out and drink a beer or tea by the fire - just ask! Want to sit alone and chill - just let us know!

The Neighbourhood

Neighbourhood is on a quiet, rural cul-de-sac. There is one main road (Chilliwack Lk Rd) that runs West to East up the valley. River is within walking distance, with the Tamihi rapids at approximately a 10 min walk away. The shoulders of the main road are wide, but cars do tend to drive fast, so caution should be taken if walking or cycling on it.

Getting Around

Guests must have their own transportation as there is no access to public transport nearby. Taxi companies service our area, but we are 10kms from town, so expect a larger bill if using this option.

Cyclists will find that the road is freshly paved and there is a wide shoulder from Vedder bridge all the way to our property. The ride is beautiful, follows the river up the valley, and has a slight elevation gain as you head east.

Other Things to Note

- The home is tiny! It's not fully off-grid, but be aware that it does have off-grid elements to it. The bathroom has a composting toilet that you'll have to be comfortable with.

- Our property is relatively close to the main road. Although there are times during the day (early mornings / evenings) when it's crazy-quiet and you can just sit and listen to the river... during the daytime on weekends there is a fair bit of traffic noise. The intent of this listing is to be used as a place to hang your hat after a busy day out adventuring.

- The property is owned by a working family with kids and cats. Owners live in the main house and the guest house is out back. As such, there is typically lots of activity around the place, with kids running about. We will do our best to not be noisy before 9am but it's a family neighbourhood and there are kids all over.

- There is a pool, but it is not available to guests - sorry :(

CRVBasecamp is a humble little tiny-house AirBnb rental situated on the edge of an outdoor-lovers paradise in the Chilliwack River Valley.
