A totally wonderful place to stay. The location is second to none. We stayed for six days, no car, and had no problem filling our days. So, much to do. Everything is walkable and we encountered many fine restaurants with the best seafood. The Wharf itself is just such a wonderful area. Bustling during the day, quiet at night. Never had a problem with noise. I would highly recommend a stay here. Carene is excellent the to deal with. Everything went smoothly. We would not hesitate to go back. Loved it!!!

The Fisherman's Wharf is a popular tourist destination, but privacy was not an issue at Carene's place; come night-time, the wharf is extremely tranquil. There is a limited amount of power going to the float homes, so you do have to be mindful of not doing everything at once (boiling water, blow-drying hair, charging phone etc.). The room is spacious and well-appointed - heated bed-sheets were a real treat for chilly February nights! I was in Victoria for a personal trip. There were a few places along the busy main streets (Government Street, Wharf Street, Fort Street, View Street etc.) that I wanted to visit, but I was also keen to walk towards St. James' Bay and Beacon Hill Park - Carene's place is ideally located in the middle for those wanting to do both!

A really cool experience to have! The gentle rocking of the house boat let us sleep like a baby all night long. This place is close to town and everything you need, we had breakfast at a lovely nearby cafe called Nourish, we highly recommend visiting it for food. Make sure you also walk around the docks to check out what's around.

Great location. We really enjoyed truly being right on the water. Can't wait to come back. Carene was really helpful with pointing us to a local spot for happy hour. And the place that provides breakfast has really good local organic food, with fantastic staff. We will be back!
