2 bedroom and den, 2 bathroom oceanfront home, south facing cityview deck
We have lived on the North Shore for 20 years and have come to love all of the activity and beauty that it offers. When we found this home we immediately fell in love with the location and setting. We will one day move into this wonderful home when we become empty-nesters. For now, we're happy to share this great location and setting with you.
Linda purchased this House Boat in 2014
Why Linda chose Lower Lonsdale
The home allows one to get away from it all and still be close to all the attractions Vancouver has to offer. Whether you want to hike the local mountains or wine and dine downtown, you will be close to it all.
What makes this House Boat unique
Enjoy nature and city living in one convenient location. This tranquil, modern, float home is a unique and memorable experience. Located in the outdoor playground of the North Shore with easy access to downtown Vancouver. Easy access to numerous mountain trails, three local ski hills, Whistler and Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal.

Great alternative to downtown stay
It was so nice to have the downtown view from a rocking home. Very easy to get downtown on the seabus. Everything was perfectly clean. Linda was very helpful with check in.
A Wonderful Place to Stay
We had such a wonderful few days on the float home in Mosquito Creek Marina. The owner, Linda, is one of the nicest and most helpful people you will ever meet. The house is just perfect- clean, comfortable, very well equipped and in the perfect location. In addition Linda ensures there is much more than just a few basic essentials in the fridge and cupboards, so nice to have. The views over the Marina and across the water to Vancouver are great and the proximity to the Seabus terminal makes access to Downtown Vancouver so easy. With Lonsdale Quay Market also within 10 minutes walk there really is everything you could want.
Many thanks, Linda, if we ever need somewhere to stay in Vancouver again, the float house will be our first choice.
Our stay couldn’t have been better. The float home was a perfect fit for our party of five. Check in was in person with the owner, Linda and her husband James. They gave as an overview of the house, right down to how to work the Sonos system. The neighborhood is walking distance to shopping and dining. And you can catch the SeaBus water taxi from there to take you straight to downtown Vancouver, eliminating a difficult drive and park experience. Location also allowed us easy access to outdoor activities north and west of the city. Evenings on the back deck provided spectacular views of Vancouver across the Harbour. We could not have chosen better accommodations for our visit!
As beautiful as the pictures! Very classy and clean.
I surprised my husband for our anniversary with a stay at this beautiful float home. The home was exactly as shown and was in a perfect location with easy walking access to everything. Linda, our host, made us feel welcome and was sweet to periodically check with us that all was ok. We would love to return one day and have recommended a float home vacation to all of our friends. Truly relaxing.
We were extremely pleased with this property and management. It was clean, quiet and within walking distance to all amenities, just what the Doctor ordered..
