About Linda

We have lived on the North Shore for 20 years and have come to love the breadth of activity and beauty that it offers. When we found this home we immediately fell in love with the location and setting. We will one day move into this wonderful home when we become empty-nesters. For now, this great location and setting are yours to enjoy.

Linda purchased this house boat in 2014

Why Linda chose Lower Lonsdale

The home allows one to get away from it all and still be close to all the attractions Vancouver has to offer. Whether you want to hike the local mountains or wine and dine downtown, you will be close to it all.

What makes this house boat unique

Enjoy nature and city living in one convenient location. This tranquil, modern, float home is a unique and memorable experience. Located in the outdoor playground of the North Shore with easy access to downtown Vancouver. Easy access to numerous mountain trails, three local ski hills, Whistler and Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal. A twelve minute sea bus ride to downtown, the Canada line and Vancouver International Airport.

Foodies will enjoy the walk to the Quay for fresh, local seafood and produce that can be brought back and prepared in a gourmet kitchen.

There is a workshop on the lower level for storing your bikes or tuning your skis. Power up the Sonos and enjoy your favourite music as you work.

A wonderful and unique property.

  • 5 of 5

This floating house in a marina in North Vancouver was lovely. Very clean and modern with a full kitchen and a great view of the Vancouver skyline from the deck. Just a 5 min walk to the SeaBus at Lonsdale Quay which takes you into Vancouver; also an easy bus ride to Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Many good restaurants nearby. Our host was extremely helpful and responsive.

Centrally located, yet quiet, spacious and unique

  • 5 of 5

This beats condo living. Even though floating, house offered solid accomodations, very clean...almost looked new. Just a few minutes walk to the sea bus which brings you to downtown Vancouver in 15 minutes. But Lower Lonsdale where marina is located has lots to offer and is a little downtown of its own with hu;ndreds of stores and restaurants and a busy waterfront of its own. Kitchen was well stocked and bathroom was luxurious. Excellent tv package, tho a bit complicated to navigate...we accidentally ordered an extra channel tr;ying to get out of no mans land on the converter. The balcony is fabulous bonus with bbq and lots of seating. We had family over for dinner, maybe 10 people altogehter, and the place did not feel overcrowded. All shopping...food, drugstore, booze...is within 5 minute walk. We had a couple small problems figuring things out and hosts James and Linda were on the ball with quick responses and visits to the apartment to help us out. I''ve stayed in houses and apartments all over the world for the past 15 years, at least 100 different places, and this is one of the best.

Beautiful Home with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this clean, modern, spacious float home! We stayed four nights over Spring Break and luckily had great weather. The float home is ideally located for exploring Vancouver and nearby attractions, such as Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge. While we did have a rental car, we easily could have done without as the public transportation in Vancouver is awesome! From the house, we walked about 10 minutes to the Seabus that goes over to Downtown Vancouver - so easy and convenient. The marina was very quiet and peaceful, and the views across the bay to downtown Vancouver were spectacular!

The owner, Linda, was very easy to work with, very responsive, and extremely helpful in answering questions and providing recommendations. We would stay here again - without hesitation - next time we are in Vancouver!

Highly Recommended Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The float house is absolutely beautiful. Upscale, modern design in pristine condition. Nestled between downtown Vancouver and surrounding mountains, the view from every angle is spectacular. The owner's Linda and James went above and beyond, providing recommendations for restaurants and activities for the surrounding areas. Truly a vacation we will never forget!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, private, relaxing house located within walking distance to everything. Linda the owner is great, very accommodating and easy going. The house is well appointed and everything is like new. My only regret was that I wasn't staying in Vancouver for longer so I could rent this house for more time. I really can't say enough about this place. I will absolutely be back.
