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!

What makes this house boat unique

Welcome to The Burrows Vancouver!

Started from a dream, and being built into reality - it’s our home away from home and would love for it to be yours too! The Burrows is part of a special community of ocean homes located at Mosquito Creek Marina in North Vancouver, BC.

The house boat was amazing! Sourounded by mountains, ocean and the Vancouver city sky line.

  • 5 of 5

The house boat was emasculate. You can not find a 3 bedroom with ensuites for every room anywhere! The open living upstairs plan with the most incredible views of the Vancouver city sky line and the marina are unreal!

The marina was so quiet and so close to everything! We walked everywhere. Shops, restaurants, the seabus to downtown all with in 5 minutes!

Highly highly recommend this place!

WOW! Best vacation rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start!?! I love staying in vacation rental homes because there is more space and amenities than staying in a stale and boring hotel. That being said, I have stayed in quite a few properties. This property was the best experience by far and Peggy was the most responsive host I’ve had the pleasure of renting from. We rented this property for a family vacation and all ages raved how great it was. Peggy greeted us on our late arrival and showed us the ins and outs of living in this spacious float house. Photos of the property are an honest representation. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, kitchen had everything you could possibly want/need, the deck was relaxing with a great view, and there were even games and books for all ages. The location can’t be beat. Easily accessible to Capilano Suspension Bridge, easy drive to Whistler and Deep Cove for hiking and kayaking, short scenic stroll to Lonsdale Quay shopping, restaurants and entertainment, as well as a very short walk to the seabus that quickly and affordably took us to Vancouver proper where we rented bikes and rode around Stanley Park and walked around downtown. Public Transportation is so convenient, that you really don’t need a car unless you plan on going further out. We would definitely stay here again and are a scheming a way to own our own float house. What a fun experience!

I can’t not emphasise how responsive Peggy was. We needed an extra parking pass and she got one to us immediately. During our stay, the coffee maker broke. We had a new one delivered to us the very same day even though the Keurig was still working! Thanks Peggy!

Gem in North Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who rented this beautiful floating home for three nights, on our way to Lake Louise. What a fabulous location, not just being right on the water, with a fabulous view of the marina and skyline of Vancouver, but also walking distance to the beautiful Lonsdale Quai Market, and a lot of very good restaurants to choose from. We loved every minute of our stay. Peggy is a wonderful host, very helpful and accessible! Highly recommend!

Quintessential Vancouver BC

  • 5 of 5

Peggy's place is one of the most unique HomeAway's we have ever stayed in. The skyline view of downtown Vancouver and the boat harbor are ever-present. The house is fully equipped and very comfortable. It does actually move since it is a houseboat! The water pressure in the showers is okay not great. The location is first-rate, secure, easy access to a local park, the seabus, restaurants, shops etc. It's also an easy drive to all parts of Vancouver. Stay here for a unique and enjoyable experience!
