A beautiful weekend on the Fraser River

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed a weekend in Jackie's 2BR 2 ensuites float home B&B and it was surreally beautiful. We can't recommend it highly enough. The swans, the docks, the comfortable beds and restful decor, the well equiped kitchen, the sunsets, the gas fireplaces in each room, the amazing 3 hour walk along the dyke and estuary, the fish and chips at Sharkey's in the village of Ladner. We'll come again.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The location was quiet, but still an easy drive to the places we needed to visit in the greater Vancouver area. It was perfect for two couples. We enjoyed the breakfast foods provided, and loved our time sitting on the dock watching all the wildlife. The owner checked in with us daily to see if we had any needs, and was always available by phone. We look forward to coming back again!

Wonderful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five including two teenagers and a nine year old. This was a perfect set up for us. We rented out both rooms and were able to cook our own meals and come and go as we pleased. It was very pleasant to watch the sun set while sitting on the hot tub and to feel the cool breeze off the river during the night. The wildlife--swans, ducks, canadian geese, a seal, and even a bald eagle, were fantastic. The town of Ladner was delightful and supplied all of our needs. The hosts were very solicitous but also gave us the space we needed.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'm from Fairmont Hot Springs BC and loved staying at the float home. I stayed for a week and enjoyed the fireplace in the room and views out the windows. Loved feeding the swans and looking at the boats. I had to travel back and forth to the BC children's Hospital where my daughter was which was a bit of a drive, but the quiet surroundings and cute little town of Ladner was nice to come back to after a long day. I also had my two small dogs with me and they were very accepting of them! The swan tried to bite one of them, but I don't blame the swan! Thanks for the great stay!!

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to believe there are no reviews of this vrbo because they have been in business for years. The description is accurate, the bedroom suites are large and comfortable and the surrounding decks/dock extend the space, the hosts are friendly and helpful, the setting is peaceful and relaxing yet only a short drive to scenic Ladner, Steveston, Richmond, or even a day in Vancouver. If you want to bird at Reifel, you can't get closer. We planned to stay only two nights but were delighted that we could extend to a third (midweek). Highly recommend and will be back!

Owner's Response: So glad you found us, last minute at best. Enjoyed having you although barely saw you as you were out and about everyday seeing the sights, which I think you did very well at. You were lovely guests and if you didnt see everything on your last trip here or need more we look forward to your arrival. Jackie and Colin
