Rock to sleep in funky, vibrant Fisherman's Wharf - a major tourist attraction. The location is unbeatable - Walk to downtown, the inner harbour, and the beaches along Dallas Road in 10 minutes. We are steps to food kiosks on the dock. In summer tiny water taxis will take you everywhere. The ducks, geese, otters, seals, herons, seagulls, and tiny fishes abound.
Simply unique. Fisherman's Wharf - where thousands of visitors come to look at our 33 whimsical funky floating homes in a harbour by the sea. Living here is a dream romanticized by many, but experienced by few. You get to see inside and stay. It feels like you are living in Venice with water surrounding you and water views from every window.
Please Note: The video shows the wharf and the entire house - you are renting a beautiful room in the house, not the entire float home. There are 2 large separate bedrooms on the ground floor that can sleep 4 in total. Each has a private bathroom.
It is not a boat - it is a modern home. Once I have met you and given you orientation with priceless information about places to eat and go, you do not have to interact with your host - you have total privacy. The house is securely tied to the docks and moves and shimmies very gently if the wind is blowing.
Experience true South African hospitality. Carene is a gregarious host, well educated, well traveled and euphorically happy to be living in the best place in BC - looking forward to welcome you with open arms and make your visit a memorable experience.
There are several places to eat right here on the docks, including a coffee shop. My guests get a 20% per person discount on Eagle Wing whale watching tours and a 10% discount from Kelp Reef kayak rentals right here on the dock. You are just a 5 minute walk to the ocean on Dallas Road where you can walk or bike for miles along the sea shore. We are close to Beacon Hill Park, the Royal BC Museum, and the Empress Hotel. Have a coffee or lunch at Breakwater Bistro on the water and walk out onto the long breakwater pier. We offer the best location to explore the different areas of town without having to take a car. Bike rentals are delivered to the house.
No pets, sorry. Please note: due to limited storage space, I am not equipped with baby seats, cribs, or a playing area for very young children. There is no storage space for bikes on or next to the house. We don't have cooking facilities.
