{Brand New!} Oceanfront Float Home

Other - Entire home/apt · W Esplanade, North Vancouver, BC V7M 1A7, Canada

The Space


Together with our parents and siblings, we are building our dream vacation home. A waterfront property is something that we've worked our entire lives for and are proud and happy to have fulfilled this dream. We have a family owned & operated cafe up the hill on Lonsdale, North Vancouver, and after years of serving the community and residents, we realized just how much we love to meet new people and are more than happy to open up our home to you. We can't wait to provide you with a comfortable and memorable stay. Our home will be available for you beginning February 1st, 2013.

{Kitchen & Dining}

Here at The Burrows, we know that kitchens are for more than preparing food! It truly is the heart of the home, and our beautiful kitchen is designed for just that: to be enjoyed by all. It boasts a center island with stools for gathering, and a stunning Viking 36” stainless steel, 6 burner gas range for professional chefs and professional eaters alike! Paired with it are the other stainless appliances - full fridge with freezer, dishwasher, and a perfectly temperature controlled wine chiller.

Our dining room offers enough seating for eight, plus there are plenty of dishes, cutlery, glasses, mugs, serving plates and bowls - plus all the amenities of home: can opener, salad spinner, coffee maker, toaster, baking pans and more! Take a look in our pantry, and you’ll find it stocked with the complimentary essentials that you don't really need to pack from home: oils, spices and your basic staples. (Pasta, Rice, Oats, Flour)

If you would like your favourite beverages chilled and waiting for you, or if the last thing you want to do when you arrive is go grocery shopping, let us do it for you!

Ask us about our shopping service - you give us a list of your favourites and we'll try our very best to get you what you need! We'll give you the original reciept, so you only cover the cost of what you order and have an opportunity to make a donation to the awesome team at North Shore Recue.

{The Great Room}

In true westcoast style, our great room is fully furnished and features a grand 16 foot barrel ceiling, exposed wood beams and floor to ceiling windows to maximize the view! Our entertainment side (email hidden), surround sound, Blu-ray DVD player, and Netflix.

For those who enjoy a good book with a great view, our library area is complete with a beautiful fireplace, shelves filled with literary classics and board games for everyone to enjoy during your stay.

Slide open the patio doors in the Great Room to take advantage of the ocean breeze, or step onto our patio! The opening from the Great Room to the patio creates an amazing indoor/outdoor feel. Lounge on the deck year round for optimal ocean living! For the self-appointed grill master, we have the perfect partner for you: a stainless steel natural gas barbeque!

{The Bedrooms}

Our master suite features a king sized bed equipped for royalty - complete with luxurious sheets and down duvet. Not just for sleeping, the room offers a TV with DVD player, and access to Netflix and cable. The spacious master ensuite comes fully equipped with a large soaker tub, shower option, and all the amenities of home!

Our second and third bedrooms feature oversized windows that frame a beautiful view of the boats in the marina and the skyline beyond it. Not to worry though, our drapes ensure complete privacy so you can have the best of both worlds. Both rooms hold queen sized beds with luxurious sheets and down duvets that will ensure peaceful rest. Each of the bedrooms have their own TV's equipped with Netflix and cable, standard closets and private ensuites; room two has an easily accessible walk in shower, and room three features a bath tub with shower fixtures. We also have a pull out couch with a queen sized bed in the living room and a Barcelona Daybed on the main floor - this home can sleep up to 9 guests!

For those with down allergies, we have a synthetic comforter alternative. Please don't hesitate to ask!

{Our Name}

We are always asked about the name 'The Burrows' - here's a little background information that will help make sense of the name:

Being Vancouverites, our family has a special place in our hearts for our beloved hockey team, The Vancouver Canucks! (GO 'NUCKS!) The matriarch of our family, Peggy, has a special place in her heart dedicated to a certain Canucks forward--- jersey #14, Alex Burrows.

When we discovered that our address would be #14, Peggy immediately started jokingly referring to the house as 'The Burrows'. As we seriously started brainstorming names, we couldn't find anything we liked better, and figured that the name reflected our family, love for our city, and our excitement to share it!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • What a fantastic place to stay. They have left nothing out of the facilities pure luxury and comfort.

    We all loved the place and were very sad to leave. We will be back.


    March 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay at "The Burrows"! The setting was beautiful, home immaculate and comfortable, hosts were extremely helpful and warm. It was a great way to explore Vancouver from the north.

    February 2014
  • This place is awesome. Beautiful house and great location! The hosts are wonderful and they have thought of everything. It really feels like home. Great bedding and ensuite in every bedroom. Kitchen is outstanding.

    Fairly convenient on the North Shore…20 minutes to downtown via the Lion's Gate Bridge or a 10 minute walk to the Sea Bus at Lonsdale Quay.

    One small warning: there is a slight rocking that messes with your balance a bit…should not be a problem unless you are very sensitive and experience motion sickness.

    Loved it overall and consider it my new home-away-from-home in Vancouver!

    Thanks for a great stay.

  • Melanie, words can't express how delighted we were to be able to stay in your lovely home. It was far beyond excellent. You have thought of everything. Our whole family was in awe of all that you provided.
    Your mum, Peggy, is such a beautiful lady - buying us some basic groceries as we arrived in the evening, greeting us on our arrival and showing us around the house, and then, going out and getting us some pizza for our dinner. Wow! What kindness and hospitality.
    Everything about the Burrows is exceptional, the facilities, the cleanliness, the layout, the views, the position in relation to public transport into the city or up to Grouse Mt.
    If anyone was to travel to Vancouver with a large family like ours, or even a small family this would be the place to stay. It would be impossible to beat.

  • Very recommended Place !!
    This is the best place I ever had, this floating house gave me very unique experience. The Exterior is very beautiful and the best thing is the interior of this place, It has very good interior design.
    The location is strategic to the downtown.

    The host is really really nice and really welcoming us, She told us everything about the house, corner to corner without missing anything.

    Never forgotten about this place.

    Thanks Melanie and Peggy.
    We Love you !!

  • We came from Texas and California to celebrate 3 birthdays (51', 28' & 25') together in this wonderful house! Wow, the location is prime, an amazing view and the hospitality we received from Peggy was incredible. We loved the crab legs you were so kind to give us, as well as the magnificent apple strudels, Thanks!
    We cooked, played board games, laughed & had a great time in this impressive home. Everyday we drive everywhere without any trouble. We hope to come back soon & repeat this week at the "Burrows" floating home !

  • This is a great place, extremely convenient with the ferry just 5mn away. The house is brand new, with all the amenities you can wish for. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a full bathroom, and the dinning / living room is very large and clear. We were 4 adults + 1 kid, and there was room to spare.

    The owner was flexible and just plain lovely.

    October 2013
  • Perfect!!!! that was amazing!!!!!!! You can find whatever you need in this house. Beautiful decoration, beautiful design, the best enviroment, perfect bedrooms,, wonderful dinning room, comfortable parlor with high tech PA system and amazing kitchen. (We love to having breakfast, bbq and drink on the deck : )

    We were so enjoy and really wanna come back again for sure.


    October 2013
  • Really really great accommodations. Perfect location for a stay in the Vancouver area.

    There were seven of us and the Burrows easily accommodated us all. Enjoyed seeing and warching the otters and bald eagles tight there in the marina. We all had a hard time leaving and look forward to returning in the future.

    October 2013
  • Fabulous was the word we used over and over to describe our time at The Burrows. Pictures do not do justice to this incredible home. We traveled with 9 family members and all had more the enough space to eat , sleep , relax and just hang out. The bedrooms are spacious and modern , the kitchen has every amenity you could need , and with a quick call Peggy delivered us anything we were missing. The location is ideal and with sea lions as evening visitors our children were delighted to relax on the deck and keep an eye out. Peggy and Melanie were phenomenal to work with and made us feel right at home. We have already recommended The Burrows to friends and will definitely be back.
