Paired with it are the other stainless appliances - full fridge with freezer, dishwasher, and a perfectly temperature controlled wine chiller.

Our dining room offers enough seating for eight, there are plenty of dishes, cutlery, glasses, mugs, serving plates and bowls - plus all the amenities of home: can opener, salad spinner, coffee maker, toaster, baking pans and more!

About Peggy Lim

We are Peggy and Jeffrey Lim. Together with our adult children, we've built our dream vacation home. A waterfront property is something that we've worked our entire lives for and are proud and happy to have fulfilled this dream. We own a cafe up the hill in Lonsdale, North Vancouver, and after years of serving the community and residents, we realized just how much we love to meet new people and are more than happy to open up our home to you. We can't wait to provide you with a comfortable and memorable stay.

Peggy Lim purchased this house boat in 2012

Why Peggy Lim chose Lower Lonsdale

We are always asked about the name 'The Burrows' - here's a little background information that will help make sense of the name:

Being Vancouverites, our family are die hard fans of our beloved hockey team, The Vancouver Canucks! (Go Nucks!) The matriarch of our family, Peggy, has a special place in her heart dedicated to a certain Canucks forward --- jersey #14, Alex Burrows.

When we discovered that our address would be #14, Peggy immediately started jokingly referring to the house as 'The Burrows'. As we seriously started brainstorming names, we couldn't find anything we liked better, and figured that the name reflected our family, love for our city, and our excitement to share it!

What makes this house boat unique

Welcome to The Burrows Vancouver!

Started from a dream, and being built into reality - it’s our home away from home and would love for it to be yours too!

Unique vacation rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family get together with easy access to sea bus to take us over to downtown and to Science World. It was fun to shop at Quay and nearby shops to fill our fridge. Home was clean and tidy, beds and linens were cosy, and kitchen well stocked for serving our family of 8. We loved the view from the living room and deck. Peggy, our host, was friendly and very helpful.

Beautiful floating home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The floating home was very comfortable with lots of room and very well provisioned. We enjoyed a family reunion there and cooked all of our meals in the amply stocked kitchen. Beds were very comfortable and the deck was a treat on a sunny afternoon. We would come back

An amazing and spectacular stay at The Burrows

  • 5 of 5

It only too one look by our group at the Burrows Float home listing and we knew we wanted to stay there on our trip to the Vancouv area. Our host Peggy was extremely accommodating and helpful. Peggy was very responsive all the way from our initial booking and there to greet us upon our arrival. The Burrows is a beautiful home. The home was spotless upon our arrival. It

Was fully stocked with supplies. Peggy provided detailed instructions for navigating our way around the home that were great to have. The kitchen appliances were top notch . The location of The Burrows is convenient and the views off the upper deck of downtown Vancouver spectacular. The Seabus just down the street made getting to Downtown Vancouver with all its attractions a breeze. Lonsdale Quay Market with all its shops is a short walk from The Burrows. All of us in our group agreed that we will get back to explore more of the Vancouver Area and The Burrows Float Home is where we'll stay. I've shared pictures and details of The Burrows with many family members and friends. Our stay here was a top highlight of our trip to the Vancouver, Seattle and Portland region.

Our Family Vacation at The Burrows Float House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Burrows for our family of 7 was wonderful. The North Vancouver location is perfect with a short walk to the Sea Bus that gets you to Vancouver in a snap. The public transportation to other locations on the North Vancouver side (Lynn Canyon and The Grouse Grind, for example) was just as close and very convenient.

Peggy Lim is the best hostess we have ever experienced in our (many) family trips to various part of the US, Canada and Europe. She was so helpful and accessible without being overbearing. Her home is so fun to experience and is VERY comfortable and clean. It had all the items we needed in the kitchen (since we cooked most of our meals and ate in). WiFi worked well for our son who needs to work for his own business even when we're away on vacation. All the rooms and beds were quiet and comfortable.

We just couldn't ask for more and thank Peggy for her incredible hospitality.

Even after the trip was over, she bent over backwards to make sure that we received our security deposit back (when our local problematic USPS Mail seemed to cause problems).

Just a perfect stay with a perfect hostess and one we would recommend to everyone.

This is the most unique HomeAway in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this floating home for my wife's milestone birthday. The house and owner is impeccable any your stay will be perfect. All amenities have been considered, even shampoo in the showers. There is nothing you'll find wanting, other that "why didn't I book a longer stay"? The Lonsdale quay area has everything, including the Seabus and sky train access.

Peaceful, convenient place to stay outside of the hustle & bustle.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Float Home for a long weekend and had a wonderful visit. Because we were all coming from different parts of the US, we arrived and departed at odd hours of the day -- and yet Peggy was able to accommodate us and ensure that we were able to check in and out with ease. The space is lovely and quiet, and remarkably convenient -- the SeaBus pickup is a beautiful ten minute walk away (and we were rained on every day and it was STILL a pleasure to walk), and the Bus itself is easy to use, warm, and constant. We were able to explore both Downtown Vancouver and Northern Vancouver with ease. There's also a wonderful market near the Quay, so there's truly no need that can't be easily met. Would definitely recommend staying at the Burrows above any in-city accommodations. Peggy is a great communicator and a delight.
