3 Bedroom,3.5 Bathroom,(Sleeps 8) Oceanfront Floating Home in North Vancouver
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 Lower Lonsdale
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!

Great property, responsive owner.
Stunning Houseboat in a fabulous location.
Our family of 5 stayed on Peggy’s incredibly stunning and cosy houseboat for 5 days in mid December. It was perfect for us! Spacious, beautifully set out, warm and well equipped. We had everything we could possibly need and more. The washing machine and dryer were brilliant! As this was our first stay in a houseboat, we were not sure what to expect, but The Burrows was luxurious In every way. The slight, infrequent swaying/rocking was surprisingly very relaxing. The views across to downtown Vancouver were amazing. The houseboat was serene. I am particularly noise sensitive, so this was an excellent choice for us. It was quiet and peaceful, yet just a short walk to the Lonsdale Markets, the Lonsdale shops, and transport. Regular buses take you to Downtown, the Park Royal Village, Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge etc and the Sea Bus ( a ferry across the harbor into Downtown ) is also just a 5 minute walk away. We all had a wonderful stay and were most upset when we had to leave. Peggy was a fantastic host and very quick to answer emails and any queries I had. She was extremely helpful. We are incredibly grateful to Peggy for making our first trip to Vancouver so memorable. We hope we have the pleasure of returning to The Burrows again one day. Thank you Peggy.
Amazing float house! Clean, well supplied with everything you could needs. City skyline views breathtaking! House has a rocking motion that rocks you to sleep. Each bedroom has a bathroom and there are extra trundle beds . Decor is updated and welcoming. You will enjoy being in North Vancouver but close drive to downtown Vancouver and it’s sights.
Really comfortable and beautiful. Vuew is awesome.
Only thing ro note is if you get motion sick ir have vertigo it does move. Did not bother my husband or I but our daughter did mind the motion.
Property was unique and very well-kept. Easy walk to public transport, which meant we could skip the rental car completely. Views were beautiful. Highly recommend, and would definitely stay again! Thanks!
Peggy's floating home is spacious, comfortable, and in a wonderful location. Will definitely seek this place out when we come back to Vancouver!
