Here at the burrows, we know that kitchens are for more than preparing food! It truly is the heart of the home, and our beautiful kitchen is designed for just that: to be enjoyed by all. It boasts a center island with stools for gathering, and a stunning viking 36” stainless steel, 6 burner gas range for professional chefs and professional eaters alike! Paired with it are the other stainless appliances - full fridge with freezer, dishwasher, and a perfectly temperature controlled wine chiller.

Our dining room offers enough seating for eight, there are plenty of dishes, cutlery, glasses, mugs, serving plates and bowls - plus all the amenities of home: can opener, salad spinner, coffee maker, toaster, baking pans and more! Take a look in our pantry, and you’ll find it stocked with the complimentary essentials that you don't really need to pack from home: oils, spices and your basic staples. (pasta, rice, oats, flour)

If you would like your favorite beverages chilled and waiting for you, or if the last thing you want to do when you arrive is go grocery shopping, let us do it for you!

Ask us about our shopping service - you give us a list of your favorites and we'll try our very best to get you what you need! We'll give you the original receipt, so you only cover the cost of what you order and have an opportunity to make a donation to the awesome team at north shore rescue.

In true west coast style, our great room is fully furnished and features a grand 16 foot barrel ceiling, exposed wood beams and floor to ceiling windows to maximize the view! Our entertainment side includes a flatscreen tv, surround sound, and access to netflix.

About Peggy Lim

We are Peggy and Jeffrey Lim. Together with our adult children, we've built our dream vacation home. A waterfront property is something that we've worked our entire lives for and are proud and happy to have fulfilled this dream. We own a cafe up the hill in Lonsdale, North Vancouver, and after years of serving the community and residents, we realized just how much we love to meet new people and are more than happy to open up our home to you. We can't wait to provide you with a comfortable and memorable stay.

Peggy Lim purchased this house boat in 2012

Why Peggy Lim chose North Vancouver

We are always asked about the name 'The Burrows' - here's a little background information that will help make sense of the name:

Being Vancouverites, our family are die hard fans of our beloved hockey team, The Vancouver Canucks! (Go Nucks!) The matriarch of our family, Peggy, has a special place in her heart dedicated to a certain Canucks forward --- jersey #14, Alex Burrows.

When we discovered that our address would be #14, Peggy immediately started jokingly referring to the house as 'The Burrows'. As we seriously started brainstorming names, we couldn't find anything we liked better, and figured that the name reflected our family, love for our city, and our excitement to share it!

What makes this house boat unique

Welcome to The Burrows Vancouver!

Started from a dream, and being built into reality - it’s our home away from home and would love for it to be yours too! The Burrows is part of a special community of ocean homes located at Mosquito Creek Marina in North Vancouver, BC. It’s location boasts unparalleled views of the downtown Vancouver skyline to the South, the legendary “Lions” mountains to the North, at high-tide enjoy a view of the breathtaking Stanley Park and the beautiful lights of the Lions Gate Bridge to the west!

Spacious, cozy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
Breathtaking views of Vancouver, which you can enjoy from your own private balcony.
The house boat has everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. We were able to create wonderful meals in the spacious kitchen, which we enjoyed while looking out at Vancouver skyline. Shopping for groceries was a pleasant walk away. Our kids loved walking on the dock in the early morning and evening. We saw seals and otters from a distance which was a thrill. Peggy and Laura were helpful and accessible if needed. We enjoyed the home and hope to come back sometime soon.

Great Home Base for Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5
The weekend was great. We arrived late and Peggy was there waiting for us. With enthusiasm she showed us around the beautiful house that we would reside for the next four nights. We were in awe. We had 9 adults and one 9 month old and there seemed to be extra room for more people. We took the ferry downtown and walked everywhere. Great time and hope we can make it back!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5
I am a regular VRBO user and I like to take my family to nice or unique homes as part of our getaways. We hit the jackpot with this one, what a great house, floating in a unique dock setting with other floating homes. The entire dock area was unique and scenic, not to mention the amazing views of Vancouver across the bay. The home was immaculate, up to date furnishings, great condition, everything was just as described if not nicer. The owner was very nice and easy to deal with. This is the real deal, if you are coming to Vancouver consider this home. Easy access to areas in North Vancouver and beyond, so many areas of natural our outdoor interests, and an easy ferry ride into the downtown if you don't want to drive.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
I have nothing but good things to say about this rental property! Peggy and her daughter have not only furnished and equipped the home with everything you need, but they are the kindest people you will ever meet. I am the type of person that is very hesitant to use websites like these that work directly through the private owners, but Peggy explained the process and procedures very clearly and she made me feel at ease. After having gone through this experience, I can't imagine anybody every having problems with her. The house is spectacular, the furnishing is new and modern, the beds are unbelievably comfortable, the view of the marina is a must see and all in all, I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone! The coolest part of the house, in my opinion, is when slight waves cause the home to sway a tad! The first time it happened during our stay, everyone stopped talking at the same exact time, looked at each other, and laughed! It was super cool!

Christmas on a Float Home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week's stay over the Christmas Holiday. Peggy had decorated so that we could entertain our family, including teenagers, grandchildren, parents and grandparents with a Christmas tree and even Christmas napkins and centrepiece for Christmas dinner! We easily sat 12 comfortably around the dining table and used the central island as a buffet. I loved the Viking gas range and the roasting pan for our turkey was a real treasure. Peggy had a great range of serving dishes and our Christmas dinner turned out perfectly.

The furnishings in the float home are great, comfortable and the place looks as good as the photos! We really appreciated the comfortable flannel bedding and luxurious towels! Peggy's attention to detail was second to none.

Only suggestions I would make are...Provide more space for the storage of our own groceries, and maybe add a simple electric mixer. We did find the water pressure to be lacking in the kitchen and the master shower. Peggy was in touch with help immediately to make sure that we were comfortable.

The location is excellent with everything you could possibly need within walking distance, even the Seabus to downtown. We love the area, and could not imagine staying anywhere else for our visits to Vancouver.

Absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! Six stars! :)

  • 5 of 5
From the very moment I stepped into the float home, my breath was taken away. It was completely prestine with not even a single detail overlooked. Everything you could possibly need (and more) was right there at your fingertips. The patio overlooked an AMAZING view of the Marina and downtown Vancouver. When it got darker, the city lights were fabulous to see. The sleep I got in the gently rocking float home was literally the best I have ever had (the super nice bed and blankets helped too!!). We also made delicious meals with the help of all the fancy kitchen appliances. There were plenty of bathrooms for everyone to be able to use. And also, the location (which also had plenty of gated security and privacy) was walking distance from the Seabus, markets, and everything else you might need! It was such an absolutely perfect stay from the lovely home to super sweet and accommodating Peggy (the owner). She was so helpful, and kept communication going with me so the process was SO easy! Obviously, I could ramble on and on about how amazing this place is or you could just book it and see for yourself!! You will NOT be disappointed!!! :) I know I will be back!
