Sailor's View is one of the most unique & luxurious vacation rentals, & truly the 'Jewel' of Vancouver. Relax & dine under the vaulted ceiling of the open kitchen/living area, that leads onto the expansive entertainment deck with fire table. Downstairs you'll find two dream bedrooms. In the master you can touch the water from the open window. We hope to host your local visit, international vacation, romantic getaway/honeymoon, right here ON the water.

The space
We are currently booked up until Halloween, but look forward to having you stay in Nov, Dec and beyond !

Sailor’s View was just featured on the Curiocity.com (lifestyle) website & Instagram @curiocityvancouver as the "ultimate staycation."

Each area of the floating home has a unique charm. The balcony is where it's at to enjoy the incredible downtown Vancouver city view through the masts of boats & yachts in the marina, while sitting around the fire table. Inside, the exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling make for the perfect open air space to cook, dine, or just relax around the fireplace and watch TV. The luxurious steam shower in the master bathroom is a treat, as are the downstairs heated floors under your feat. Retire to either of two luxury bedrooms, the master with ocean and city views for days and an electric fireplace to set the mood!

Full of amenities including high-end Kitchenaid appliances (induction cook top and stove) and a well stocked kitchen for cooking, a Keurig coffee maker, two picture frame TV’s, as well as hair dyers in each bathroom if that saves some room in your travel bag!

For people needing to work during their stay, or just to keep in touch over video calls (or all the instagram posts from the patio!), we have Telus Fibre Optic high speed internet (yes on the dock!) with a booster, so that internet use is fast and consistent whether you are sitting out on the patio, on the laptop in bed downstairs, or doing a video call at the workstation or kitchen island.

Some people have also booked me to perform live music for them on the balcony for various special occasions. My music website is available on request, I play a mix of classic and 90’s rock, country, and some pop hits. Availability and pricing vary by date.

A neighbouring float home in the marina was featured from build to finishes in the TV series “My Floating Home.” Check it out to get excited for your stay:

Where you’ll be

North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The Lower Lonsdale area of North Vancouver is a vibrant waterfront community with lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and amenities, and just a short Seabus ride across the inlet to Downtown Vancouver and the Skytrain system to access YVR and the rest of the metro Vancouver area.

In addition to my professional career, I’m a full time musician who loves helping visitors enjoy and get the most out of the two places I call home: Vancouver and Whistler! You’ll often find me performing at one of the luxury hotels in Whistler, or with my band at country bars or major festivals where I’ve opened for some of country music’s biggest names.

During your stay

I will often check you in personally, or provide you with the access code for key-less entry. There is free 4 hour parking, however if you are bringing a vehicle, you'll have to pay $20 a day for parking at the marina, or find local free street parking a short walk away. If you are staying two weeks or longer, I can register your licence plate for free parking in the marina!
