About Linda

We have lived on the North Shore for 20 years and have come to love the breadth of 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, this great location and setting are yours to enjoy.

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. A twelve minute sea bus ride to downtown, the Canada line and Vancouver International Airport.

Foodies will enjoy the walk to the Quay for fresh, local seafood and produce that can be brought back and prepared in a gourmet kitchen.

There is a workshop on the lower level for storing your bikes or tuning your skis. Power up the Sonos and enjoy your favourite music as you work.

Fabulous property in gorgeous location

Super efficient from beginning to end. The property is charming, tastefully furnished, in a lovely location and super clean and neat. It is very well equipped and had everything we could possible require to make our stay enjoyable. Linda was warm, welcoming and extremely helpful - so a perfect destination!

Beautiful Home with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this clean, modern, spacious float home! We stayed four nights over Spring Break and luckily had great weather. The float home is ideally located for exploring Vancouver and nearby attractions, such as Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge. While we did have a rental car, we easily could have done without as the public transportation in Vancouver is awesome! From the house, we walked about 10 minutes to the Seabus that goes over to Downtown Vancouver - so easy and convenient. The marina was very quiet and peaceful, and the views across the bay to downtown Vancouver were spectacular!

The owner, Linda, was very easy to work with, very responsive, and extremely helpful in answering questions and providing recommendations. We would stay here again - without hesitation - next time we are in Vancouver!

Highly Recommended Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The float house is absolutely beautiful. Upscale, modern design in pristine condition. Nestled between downtown Vancouver and surrounding mountains, the view from every angle is spectacular. The owner's Linda and James went above and beyond, providing recommendations for restaurants and activities for the surrounding areas. Truly a vacation we will never forget!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, private, relaxing house located within walking distance to everything. Linda the owner is great, very accommodating and easy going. The house is well appointed and everything is like new. My only regret was that I wasn't staying in Vancouver for longer so I could rent this house for more time. I really can't say enough about this place. I will absolutely be back.

The perfect anniversary trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first trip alone in 8 years for us! And we were celebrating our 10-year anniversary. This spot couldn't have been more perfect for us. We had a combination of gorgeous sunny days and cloudy/rainy days. We were at the best jumping off point for getting out and about, and also surrounded in cozy loveliness when we were at the house.

We were surprised how much the house moved with the water! It was neat. Aside from having hours of uninterrupted conversation (what?!) we wanted to eat. A lot. We got amazing recommendations from Linda - and I want to pass them along! Hachi Hana was the best sashimi I've ever had! We had a wonderful meal at Oddfish in Kitsilano - great wine list and delicious, seasonal food!

One last thing: when you stay here you get to wear a pair of the sleekest slippers! I'm still thinking about them....
