Nigel was a great host, quite easy to deal with and accommodating. The location was ideal, minutes to the seawall and steps away from downtown Vancouver. If you are looking for an alternative accommodation that gives you a true coastal experience right on the water then the Funky Boat is an ideal choice. We will be back soon!
Nigel was a great host. Very prompt communication and friendly when we met up. His boat is lovely and very comfortable.
Nigel was great: The communication was clear and he was accommodating to our arrival time. The location was fantastic and it was a great value for an out-of-the ordinary stay in the city. It was a very rainy and cool weekend but we were snug and warm and had two fantastic nights of sleep. It was fun to watch the boat traffic and rowing shells from the end of the dock in the mornings. Those not familiar with a boat might be surprised at how compact on-board living can be, but once you get settled in you realize everything you need is very well accommodated. Great fun!
The stay was fantastic! The location, the accomodation, and the overall charm of the boat is definitely worth raving about. If one loves simplicity and peace, Nigel's Funky boat is certainly perfect. It is hard, if not impossible to find a more tranquil and relaxing place to stay in Vancouver.
NIgel to was great. He provided us with everything we needed and communication with him was clear and accomodating.
Nigel was easy to work with -- he responded quickly and was flexible with our arrival. As others have said, if you're looking for luxury this isn't the right option for you (camp toilet still in effect), but if you like boats and are looking for something fun and different, this is a great option. We hope to buy a boat ourselves one day so this stay was a good sample of the pros (the SEA!) and cons (maintenance constantly needed) of calling a boat home. The neighbourhood is really good too. Thanks for the stay, Nigel!
Our stay was wonderful! The view was spectacular and the host couldn't be nicer! We had difficulties with our arrival time and he was very accommodating. He also went out of his way to ensure we felt welcomed and well equipped. We slept soundly (we were a bit worried about the rocking, but we hardly felt anything). We would rent this again any time!
Our stay on the funky coat was very pleasurable. Fantastic neighbourhood and Nigel was great to deal with.

I love to host and share my home, favorite spots in and around Vancouver.
When exploring a new place, I love to search for the places where food is grown or made, connect with a family and create friendships with like minded people.
