About Valerie Williams

Hello – I am a grandmother, originally from the UK and still retain the accent, along with the British sense of humour… really!!

I live on the main floor above the suite and while I completely respect the privacy of my guests, I am always happy to answer questions and help with directions.

Having met many people from around the world during my travels and while working in the airline and travel industry, I really enjoy continuing to meet new people without actually leaving home.

If you have children or pets, the friendly hospitality at Ferry-Walk House is specifically designed to offer services that will make everyone’s stay comfortable and enjoyable. I can provide any child related equipment you need. If I don't have it, I can arrange for rental. For your furry family member, there is a fully-fenced garden patio, towels are provided and (of course), doggy treats. As well, I offer babysitting and dog-sitting services.

I warmly invite you to come to stay at Ferry Walk House and enjoy life in Horseshoe Bay.

Valerie Williams purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valerie Williams chose Bowen Island

Horseshoe Bay is a unique part of West Vancouver. There is a village atmosphere - shop owners are friendly and some have become personal friends. Every time I walk around the village, the mountain and sea views are unfailingly spectacular. I love where I live and will do everything possible to make you feel the same way.

What makes this apartment unique

Brochures are provided to give you plenty of ideas about what to do and where to go.

Super place to stay in Horseshoe Bay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my mother for three nights and highly recommend it. The location makes it an ideal base for travel to Whistler, Vancouver and Bowen Island. Horseshoe Bay itself is a lovely village with good restaurants and all the amenities you could want.

The apartment is spotlessly clean, comfortable and both thoughtfully and tastefully appointed, with many nice touches to make it feel homey rather than sterile. I especially appreciated the real feather pillows, the selection of tea, coffee and snacks (even dog treats!) provided and the toiletries on hand should you have forgotten anything.

The outdoor space is a lovely place for an alfresco meal or drink, with beautiful flowers, comfy patio furniture and twinkly patio lights for the evening.

Valerie is a wonderful hostess who kept in touch without being intrusive and truly made us feel like we were valued guests.

My Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to come home to after a day of sight seeing and adventuring.
The location is ideal and within easy reach of a number of other attractions. It is spacious, clean, well supplied with all the essentials you could want or need. The patio is lovely and secluded,I enjoyed sitting out there in the early morning. Having a handicap was not a problem for me. I was totally comfortable. The proprietor is a lovely woman who makes you feel welcome and offers assistance and information but does not intrude.
I would happily recommend this accommodation to my friends, family and tourists looking for a nice place to stay. We found the Sea Safari a lot of fun and the ferry ride over to the island was lovely but there were too many other places and activities that it was hard to choose just one or two to mention here.
If I am ever fortunate enough to come out west again, I would love to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Ursula and Elizabeth. Thank you for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree that there are almost too many activities to choose from!! The Sea Safari is clearly really popular. My cats Tango and Fergus loved all the extra attention you gave them. Come back soon!!

Perfect, relaxing location!

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time staying at this residence in Horseshoe Bay! Valerie is an amazing host, providing us with all the information, amenities and accommodation for all 4 of us. We were so excited to stay within a walking distance from all the restaurants, shops, and the marina. One day, we rented a boat and got a chance to cruise around Bowen Island and the neighboring places around Horseshoe Bay. We saw sea lions and wild birds, ate some of the most delicious seafood at the Boathouse and Bay Mornings, and were able to catch our early ferry to Victoria, which is conveniently located down the road. We will definitely come back to Horseshoe Bay because there's nothing more relaxing than being surrounded by mountains, water, and beautiful scenery. We recommend Valerie and her residence for anyone who wishes to get away from the noisy city and have a nice relaxing time at the bay. It's the perfect getaway! Thanks again Valerie!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you all had such a great time Sveta. The "Sea Safari" from Sewell's Marina is a great way to enjoy the wildlife and scenery, although I'm sorry you didn't see any whales!! After you left, it was a lovely surprise to find the towels already washed - thank you :)

Sure bet in Horseshoe Bay

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed at the Valerie's Ferry Walk House for a very pleasant week. Valerie was very responsive pre-booking and always available to help during the stay.

What you see in the (very nice) pictures is what you get. Everything is new. The unit has a full size washing machine, full size dryer, full size dishwasher (portable) and even an Apple TV with Netflix.

Valerie set up the second bedroom with an additional single air-bed for all kids to use. There is a TV there with its own cable box. Parents will get the idea... :)

The Horseshoe Bay village is a very short walk away. Many places to eat, a playground and just fun to walk and watch the ferries come in. Whytecliff Park is a very short drive away and highly recommended.

If you are considering a place to stay in Horseshoe Bay - choose Valerie's - it's a sure bet!

Owner's Response: Hi Ron,
Thanks for the review. You have a lovely family and I really appreciated the tidy suite when you left - especially the towels in the laundry basket ready to wash!! I hope the kids are enjoying the swimming pool in Whistler.

Family Friendly Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property in June of 2014 with our small baby and our dog while our home was being renovated. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it, especially for families with a dog. The unit was very well equipped, clean and well maintained. It was also nice and quiet when our baby needed to nap. Valerie was very helpful in answering all of our questions. The property is about a 20 minute drive to downtown and so it would be a good home base for tourists wanting to see that area as well as Vacouver Island and/or Whistler. The property is a very short walk to the horse shoe bay ferry terminal and many other amenities in the village, including transit.

Ferry Walk House - Pefection

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful time at Valerie's apartment. It was welcoming, well-appointed and perfectly located. We even got to leave our dog with Valerie for an evening, meaning he had a great time too. If you want to go to downtown Vancouver from fabulous Horseshoe Bay, do what we did: park at the Londsdale Quay and ferry over to downtown. We had a blast and avoided the traffic. There really couldn't be a better spot from which to explore the North and South shores of Vancouver than Valerie's.

Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver is a perfect gateway to connect you to Vancouver, Whistler Ski Resort and Vancouver Island. You will be coming to enjoy a friendly village neighbourhood with spectacular harbour and mountain views that will take your breath away. You will be just steps from the ferry terminal, shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pub, and a child-friendly waterfront park.

Ferries are right on your doorstep. You can set off for a day trip to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, (90 minutes). Or in 20 minutes you can be in Snug Cove on Bowen Island, exploring quaint shops & deciding which restaurant looks the most appealing. Sechelt on B.C.’s scenic Sunshine Coast Is just 40 minutes away. You can visit the farmers markets, browse through the museums, or check out local festivals and events.

From Horseshoe Bay in 15 minutes or less, you can be exploring a coastal park, playing tennis, hiking through a 500-year old Douglas and Cedar fir forest, or setting off on a Sea Safari wildlife eco-tour. If you prefer to relax, you can wander down to the village for an ice-cream or coffee, or perhaps sit in the waterfront park and watch the ferries come and go. Or you can just relax with a book in your own patio garden.

City of Vancouver – you can be in the centre of Vancouver in 30 minutes by car and there is an express bus service departing from Horseshoe Bay. The options are simply too numerous to list in detail. Choose between beaches, parks, art galleries, museums, aquarium, Chinatown, Yaletown, Gastown, Granville Island Market, to name but a few. Numerous and diverse activities that can be enjoyed in this incredibly scenic city.

Ski and snowboarding on the local mountains is just 30 minutes away, or at Whistler (2010 Winter Olympics) is a 90 minute drive along one of the most scenic highways in the world. In summer these mountains offer endless outdoor activities and the views over Vancouver from Grouse and Cypress Mountains will stay in your mind’s eye forever.
