Property was clean, updated, and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured. Upon our arrival, instructions were clear and easy to follow and the house was clean and welcoming. Directions for use of tv, heat, etc were simple. Labels around the house were clear. Instruction booklet was helpful. Decorations and furnishing made a very homey environment. The view was gorgeous and the amenities were gracious. Would recommend!

Float home is neat as a pin and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The float home is part of a development of float homes along the shores of North Vancouver, close to Lonsdale Quay. There is a city sea bus an easy walk down the path to ride to downtown Vancouver. The home and furnishings are very nice, and the mattresses are comfy. The kitchen is adequately stocked and clean. The whole check-in process was very well explained by the owner. We stayed in March, so there was not much action in the marina. But it was very relaxing to look out over the water and feel the home gently bobbing. Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Enjoyable getaway with the furkids

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a new experience within driving distance of Seattle that we could share with our two small senior dogs. We had never been in a float home, so this place was perfect! It was unique, clean, peaceful and comfortable and looked exactly like the photos. The location was convenient. We went for a few walks nearby and also drove to a few scenic parks and attractions around Vancouver. The bed was very comfortable and I enjoyed lazy mornings watching the ducks swimming a few feet away. Since it was February, I also enjoyed the heated floors! The previous guest had made off with the parking pass, but it was quickly resolved by the property manager and the owner. Highly recommended!

Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the oceanfront float home during a family member's visit to Lions Gate Hospital. The location is great with a great selection of restaurant and shops nearby. It is also a short drive to downtown. Home is very well appointed, modern and clean. Owner was very quick to respond to any questions that arose. Would definitely stay again - hopefully next time for a holiday.

January Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Float Home for a personal retreat in January. It was a perfect place to get away and relax. I especially appreciated the nearby shopping and the boat bus over to downtown Vancouver. Everything worked well, and I would recommend this place highly!
