About Valerie Williams

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

I live on the main floor above the suite. While I completely respect the privacy of my guests, I am always happy to answer questions or 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 village.

Valerie Williams purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valerie Williams chose West Vancouver

Horseshoe Bay is a unique part of West Vancouver. There is a village atmosphere - shop owners are friendly and if you stay long enough, they will get to know you by name. The mountain and sea views from the village are forever changing and unfailingly spectacular. I love where I live and when you get here, you will see why!

What makes this apartment unique

All the comforts of a home away from home.

You will find plenty of brochures to give you ideas about what to see and where to go.

Bus travel cards are provided - they can be loaded by credit card or at the ferry terminal.

Ferry Walk House has an account with a local tour company and can book tours on behalf of guests, or obtain tickets to local sightseeing attractions.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kathryn and Warren, for the great review. You were wonderful guests and I am so glad it was possible to have your son and his wife to spend a few nights here with you. You were the first guests this year that the weather was kind enough to make a BBQ possible!! I really appreciated you leaving the suite so clean and tidy - especially finding all the towels, washed, dried and folded. Please come again, it would be a pleasure to have you back!!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Ferry Walk House for the month of November, 2016 while we renovated our house, and we had a wonderful time! The property is in a perfect location, just steps away from shops, restaurants, the beach, transit, and the ferry of course. We have 2 small dogs so we were thrilled to find a place that allowed them too. The suite was very clean, well appointed and Valerie made sure we had everything we needed so that we felt right at home. I'd recommend Ferry Walk House to anyone!

Thank you Valerie!

Fabulous Ferry Walk House

  • 5 of 5

Other than the freezing weather and snow putting a serious dent in our sightseeing/holiday plans, we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, quality stay than Ferry Walk House. FWH has everything you could possibly want in a home away from home, as Valerie has taken care to make sure that everything is comfortable, clean and attractive (and warm!)

Thanks to Valerie for everything!

This is a great place to stay when in Vancouver. Some might say they want to be closer to downtown but we found it very easy to trip down the freeway and across Lion's Gate bridge, which goes through Stanley park and leads you right into the downtown, about 15 minutes. You can easily get to most of the good places-the aquarium, the tower overlooking the city, gastown, and so forth, plus its right next to the ferry to the sunshine coast and easy drive to Capilano and Whistler all of which are the opposite direction from downtown, so this is central from that perspective.

The property itself is a walkout with good window light and you have a private patio and table right outside your door. The interior includes a washer dryer and is very well appointed, very well maintained and has lots of space which was needed as I was travelling with my son and his fiancé (lol). In addition there is lots of privacy and Valerie provides everything one would need in the kitchen and bedrooms, including TV, DVD, and parking, books to read, etc. Lots of tourist info is provided in the suite and you are a block from Blenz coffee and 2 blocks from Starbucks if that appeals, plus 3 or 4 good restaurants and a little convenience store that carries most one would need for making your own meals.

peaceful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Basement suite was very nice place by the ferry boat. You do not feel like you are in the basement with big window and lots of room. Lots of little shops to walk to in Horseshoe bay. Valerie has lot of pamphlets for you to see if you are going to attractions with discounts. Valerie is there to help you if you have any questions other then that you do not see her much. Had lots of fun.

it could niot have been better

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were returning to Vancouver from a week's holiday on the Sunshine Coast. Where we were staying was perfect and we did not think that it could be equalled - but it truly was. Ferry Walk House is everything that it says on the tin (in this case the website) and much much more. The "more" lies in Valerie William's welcome, not only its warmth but the fact that in setting up her rental suite Valerie has thought of absolutely everything - and its all of the highest quality, The "more" is also the fabulous location, in the centre of town, near the water and just a few steps away form the BC Ferry Terminal with its bus stop bus stop for the brilliant 250 bus which runs along Marine Drive into Vancouver city centre and its sister 257 Express service. We were sorry to leave -but hope to return.

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.
