Just relisted post covid, starting september 4th!

Calm, quiet boathouse that easily sleeps 4 (and can sleep 6) with 2 rooftop decks, incredible 360 degree views of Vancouver and the North shore mountains and year round sunsets over the water.

Located in a security-gated marina, it is a 5 minute walk along a beautiful seawall to the Lonsdale Quay, and the Seabus to downtown

It has a 600 sq foot living area and also a boat shed containing a 28 ft yacht.

A unique, memorable living experience.

The space
If you value a new experience, beautiful views, convenience, and security, this airbnb is meant for you.

This is a one-of-a-kind, rustic boathouse in a marina with 24/7 security. It is located 100 meters from the gated entrance way down a dock mooring many beautiful boats and boathouses. The boathouse is one of the closest ones to the shore.

Neighbors are very quiet, and few boats are being operated at night, offering a high-level of privacy. Expect a fantastic sleep, on an expensive tempur-pedic king-sized mattress, which guests consistently compliment.

The front door opens to a queen size pull out couch with a flat screen TV and DVD player opposite. Cable TV, Netflix and prime is provided.

The door to the boat shed and a 28 foot motor cruiser is opposite the front door (the host will sometimes access this door to use his boat). This is the launching point for the two kayaks provided.

There is a washer dryer on the main level as well as a full bathroom with a bath tub and shower. The hot water tank is small so short showers (10 minutes) are recommended. There is a cedar sauna for 2 people on this floor which unfortunately is used as a storage space. Feel free to store suitcases and baggage here.

Steep stairs take you up to the main living area which is a cozy open concept space with a vaulted ceiling and views from many windows. Artificial lightning is not necessary during the day.

The house is floored in fir. There is a full kitchen with a dishwasher, gas stove and oven, microwave and bar fridge,(a full size fridge can be found downstairs). A dining room table for four with an airtight stove next to it and a living area with couch and daybed.

The bedroom is a step up from the living room with a privacy screen but no door. The king bed is on the floor with a 4 inch memory foam topper.

Next to the living room is the door which leads to the deck landing (bbq) and the steps up to a 100 sq foot rooftop deck. There is another smaller deck, (60 sq feet) on top of this deck which is the roof for the bedroom with awesome views from every direction.
