Delightful Float house in a marina

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this floating home. Convenient location near Lonsdale Quay Seabus for a short 15 minute ride to downtown Vancouver, was super quiet, just the sound of birds and occasional boats coming and going. We slept well on the comfy Murphy bed so that we could enjoy the view and gentle breezes with the 10’ window opening with screens. The subtle rocking motion of the floating house was delightful and relaxing. Kitchen was well equipped though we enjoyed many delicious meals out at Rogue in Vancouver, Prospect Point on Stanley Park and Vancouver Fish Co. On Granville Island, all over the top! Would love to come stay here again!

Great place to stay whilst visiting Vancouver

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely float home near lower Lonsdale. if you walk 5-10mins along the harbour you can catch the seabus to central Vancouver. It is not expensive and runs every 15mins. Much easier than driving and trying to park. The float home was comfortable and both bathrooms and kitchen were clean. Towels were spotless and well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

My only complaint was that the floor was absolutely black and sticky and after a long journey I didn't really want to go cleaning.. but it only took 20mins to sort out the problem. New bed linen would make such a difference too. Having said that a fabulous stay and great for sea planes and whale watching.

Fun floating home - right in marina

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the floating apartment. The big windows open right out to the marina. The place is on the first floor, and has 2 bathrooms - and while not huge, ample space and nice for our family of four. The cost was less than many hotel rooms in the city, so I wasn't expecting a massive place. The murphy bed had THE MOST comfortable pull-out bed I've ever slept on. I was thrilled. Its a short walk to a touristy area with plenty of restaurants. Nearby is a tiny diner-like breakfast place with a super nice cook/owner and we had homey happy experience. Kris was flexible and great!

Very peaceful, clean, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

A float home seemed like something we should do while in the Pacific Northwest, and this did not disappoint. Very peaceful, with a view of downtown Van Couver beyond the marina. Easy check in and check out, very much enjoyed our stay. Do not miss the suspension bridge park, it was a highlight of our vacation.

Unique Floating Home Stay.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this floating home in North Vancouver. The location was perfect. It was next the Waterfront Park & Lonsdale Quay Public Market. We could see the downtown highrises over the boats & yachts in the livingroom/Kitchen. The decors were modern and the furnitures were comfortable. Having two full baths was great.

We also meet the local resident seal the first night and she woke us up with her barking next morning too!

The only minor issue for us was someone spilled some pop or juice in the living room's area rug before we arrived. It was quite sticky and we tracked the stickiness to other floor areas. So, we mopped the floor, but the area rug needed to be washed as well. I notified the Manager, I trust the rug will be cleaned after we left. Communication with Kris, the Manager, was a breeze, no issue there.

I still give this floating home rental a 5* despite the minor issue with cleanliness.

We were fortunate enough to rent both the upper and lower units. We were surprised at how spacious everything was, better than in the pictures. It was so fun to stay in and everything we needed was there, well thought out and really appreciated having the two bathrooms in this unit as well. So peaceful and well maintained! We loved seeing the harbor seals out front. Highly recommend! Should also say, great communication too! Hope to return!
