Lovely and Warm Floating Home by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful in this serene and beautiful home. It was extremely clean, had a well supplied kitchen (and we were able to make our own breakfast with fresh eggs, bacon, fruit and delicious breads). The homes decor was stunning and to top it all off it had fresh flowers and plants all about to sooth your soul!

The hostess, Jackie, was so gracious and hospitable....and her niece next door so personable and helpfuli! If we ever get back to gorgeous British Columbia this is the 1st place we will stay at again! Thank you, Jackie, for the most pleasant stay in your very unique floating home!

Such a nice place

  • 5 of 5

My parents came to visit me and I wanted to do something special for them. Especially for my mom's birthday. That was it! It is such a nice, serene place. Swans, heron, geese also few cats and a dog, fresh crabs (Thank you so much Jackie!) made the stay even more exiting. Place is very clean and thoughtfully designed. Highly recommend especially for two couples or families. We rented only one room and I was worrying that our birthday dinner sounds may disturb other guests. But every room has it's own deck space. We used a grill, didn't have time to use a hot tub even it was hot and running. It was one of my mom's best birthdays ever! Hope to come back.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went with our daughter & son in law. What a fantastic place to stay. Quiet, and very clean a huge positive to for us in a b&b. Jackie, the owner, was very nice and always available if needed. It is also very soundproof between bedrooms. We easily visited Vancouver during the day. It is not far from the Night Market. The houseboat moved ever so slightly which was fun but barley noticeable. The kitchen had a lot of things and there is a grill. My husband loved the hot tub. Definitely, we hope to go back!

Great River Houseboat

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful setting on the river and close to markets and towns in the Delta area. Everything we needed was there which made meal prep fun. This is a great place to share with another couple or family.

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.
