Looking for a change? A truly unique getaway without the sacrifice of comfort? Look no further - a relaxing and fresh new off-grid experience is awaiting you with exceptional city & mountain views.

You will be anchored on the tranquil waters of False Creek on your own private oasis (moments from the seawall, Stanley Park, Yaletown etc.). Enjoy a cozy ambience with a rooftop patio, and experience Vancouver from an enviable and refreshing new vantage point.

The space
This cozy boat will be ANCHORED and thus transportation will be required to travel between land and the vessel. A complimentary water shuttle service is included on your arrival and departure dates ($25 for each additional shuttle with a 30min call out and must be arranged with staff)

This is a mechanical boat that's anchored and off-grid. There are times when certain parts do not function as you would normally expect if you were on a land dwelling Air BnB. While we ensure the functionality of everything prior to your stay, there's a possibility that status may change while you're on board. Rest assured, we will work with you remotely or come to the boat and solve any issues that may have occurred.

This unique, floating AirBnb offers an incomparable open concept and a lounging space inviting you to get cozy by the warmth of an outdoor gas fire pit or relax in the hammock during the summer. All of which takes place in the False Creek Bay with breathtaking views of beautiful downtown Vancouver. Perfect for any season and a unique experience for treating that special someone!

Floating on your anchored oasis, affectionately dubbed the “Floating Love Nest”, you will truly experience being off the grid with a state of the art solar power system that provides you wtih ease as you utilize small appliances (microwave, hair dryer etc.) throughout your stay onboard.

You will be moments away from the famous Vancouver Sea Wall for a lovely stroll, or bike that can take you around Stanley Park. If you would prefer to explore by water, please inquire and we would be happy to discuss sightseeing options!

This highly sought after, 40 foot long, twin diesel "Cruise-A-Home" has been renovated and redesigned for your comfort and pleasure that comes with modern hotel amenities. Perfect for your short term rental. We cannot wait to welcome you to the getaway that you deserve!


Due to covid-19, we have raised the standards of cleaning and disinfection on board. We follow Air BnB cleaning guidelines to ensure the space is properly sanitized between bookings. We ask that you wear a mask while meeting your hosts and during the orientation on board.

Where you’ll be

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Anchored in False Creek, you are literally in the centre of it all! Tons of restaurants, bars, cafes, breweries and world class shopping a few paddle swings away. You are also right next to downtown, Yaletown and Science World Museum.

Don't miss out on visiting Granville Island where you will find the best fish and chips in town, local fresh market and activities of all types. A must see!

During your stay

I am available for any inquiry 24/7 by text or call.

My team will meet guests upon arrival and transport them to the boat via water shuttle. They will ensure that guests have viewed the safety video that contains all pertinent information. Depending on the length of the stay and number of occupants, my team may also go to the boat to occasionally monitor supplies and systems (water, fuel, batteries, etc) with sufficient notice to guests. This will be as quick and as discreet as possible, and only when necessary.
