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 North Vancouver

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.

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....

Excellent Sister time!!

  • 5 of 5

Met my two sisters here for an extended long weekend. Enjoyed every second of it! The home is beautiful and very clean. It is the ultimate in relaxation sitting on the deck watching the world go by! There is excellent access to transit, we enjoyed downtown but we were happy to get back to the tranquility of the float home!! Linda was excellent to work with and always available if needed. Would love to come back!

I could live here!

  • 5 of 5

The float home experience was fantastic! Great location in North Vancouver within walking distance to good restaurants, wine shops, grocery and to the rest of Vancouver via the seabus. We also enjoyed being near a paved, easy bike trail called Spirit Trail which flows to Ambleside Park in West Vancouver. The float home itself was very clean, well appointed and really comfortable. Loved grilling, sipping evening cocktails and drinking morning coffee on the deck with its magnificent views of the Vancouver city skyline. Even had a couple of seals as neighbours! We would (and hope to) book this float home again in a heart beat. Thanks for sharing it with us.
