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!

Unique and beautiful star on the wTer
My family and I were so lucky to have stayed at this wonderful home. We’re boaters so staying at a float house we decided would be fun. We weren’t expecting the place to be so exceptional, homey and comfortable with an outstanding view. Our only regret was that we could only stay 3 short days. It was not nearly enough.
This home is equipped with everything and I mean EVERYTHING. The owner is a lovely lady who was so easy to communicate with.
This place is a shining gem
Peggy was our best VRBO host ever. We loved the unique house and fantastic location in North Van.
Unique Vacation Home
We just returned home from a week at this beautiful home. It was filled with everything you could possibly need, and then some. The location is fantastic - very easy to get around, and close to everything. Peggy was amazing to deal with from our original booking until we checked out. She's very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend staying here to anyone traveling to Vancouver!
