Never would have thought of it...but so glad we did.

  • 5 of 5

The home was truly fantastic..and wonderfully located. Staying in North Vancouver was definitely the way to go, easy access to Vancouver without the traffic and a great area. The house was fun and neat...and was a big part of the vacation. We opted to sleep in the Murphy bed in the living room instead of the bedroom so that we had the view of the dock all the time. We spent part of our days just enjoying the huge open windows and the view from the house.

The bed was very comfortable too and the house had everything you need.

We would love to go baby to do it again. A vacation to remember thank you

It was a very nice relaxing home.

It was a very nice relaxing place. The window on the marina side of the living room opens up to allow the outside in. Thank you Alan and Kris for everything. You were attentive to any need that we might have had.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 6, ages range 8-67. Had problems with the tv IF works not user friendly we could only get CTV. The Naugahyde bed sofa in picture has a very thin fitted wet repelling sheet on it making very hot and sticky needs a quilted one. No flat sheets on beds, do quilts get changed after every customer? Did have games for the kids, lovely and quiet location.

Vacation time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay on the boat house, and would not hesitate to rent again. The instructions on how to get to the boat house was very detailed, as well as how to enter the boat house. When we arrived the boat house was very clean. The place was very comfortable and convenient to the area and to downtown. We even meet the owner and he gave us some tips on what to see in and around town. We had no troubles in communicating with/thru VRBO when we had questions.

Thank you from Virginia.

Quiet, interesting, fun access to Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodation, the place was open and bright with a cozy bedroom. Very private, gated access. Wonderful view of the harbor and Vancouver. Kitchen was very nice for cooking all the delicious food we got at Granville island. We could look out the large windows down to the clear water and see fish and jellyfish swimming by. We drove to Stanley park fairly easily, but the best part was the short <10 minute walk on a lovely paved trail to London quay and the seabus which left every 15 minutes and was a 15 minute ride. Playground and nice park on the way! Even the walk from the seabus in Vancouver to Stanley park was great, about a mile, along the water. There was a bike lane all along there too. Also spent time north of Vancouver, which made this an ideal place to be. We drove up the 99 scenic highway which was absolutely beautiful.

Overall a very relaxing place to stay, and much more low key than the times we've stayed in the city itself. A better pace for a family, with the option of easily going over to the city.

Amazing and Cozy Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

This houseboat is beautiful and was perfect for our mom/daughters weekend getaway. It has everything that you need and is decorated in a modern, nautical style. The views were stunning and we even saw sea lions swimming outside our window. We loved being able to walk everywhere and the location was perfect! Kris was very communicative and helpful. We can't wait to come back to stay here agin!
