How they are built?

The foundations of our floating homes are concrete hulls, or polyethylene-covered styrofoam billets Floathomes are generally very low maintenance Transportation – many alternatives available...bus (terminal at top of park), water taxi, bike, or parking for your car Open minded and diverse people live here. Created with our landlord, we have agreed to a common set of rules and guidelines to best suit our chosen lifestyles

Neighbourhood

An incredible showcase park is in our backyard ... just above the parking lot Our friendly visitors, tourists, and guests (local, national and international) are inquisitive about our lifestyle and our homes ... we’re thrilled to talk with them A busy vibrant dock life by day; peace and quiet with privacy at night The market for floathomes is more seasonal than typical residential markets. At certain times of the year there are more of our homes for sale than at other times.

Victoria

Thanks to the rain effect of the nearby Olympic Mountains, Victoria receives 38% of the annual rainfall of Vancouver... Sunniest of Canada’s major cities in the summer ... no mosquitoes ... a thunderstorm about once every two years or so (two storms on two consecutive days this year)...a truly “Mediterranean” locale. Cool in summer, temperate in winter... our temperature is moderated by the 10 °C Pacific Ocean ... seldom too hot, never too cold. According to the Victoria News newspaper, Fisherman’s Wharf is the Sixth top rated tourist attraction in Greater Victoria. While we do not rent our floathomes, we are allowed “paying-caretakers” to occupy our homes (while we are absent) for up to six months. Also, we can rent-out-a-room or have room-mates. We own our homes, but lease our water lots. Constantly changing parade of boats, floatplanes, ferries and wildlife (otters, sea mink, seals, many types of birds, herons, and racoons) Ringside seats for harbour events, i.e. fireworks displays; the Swiftsure annual international sailboat races; the Antique boat show; or paddle over to see Symphony Splash in the inner harbour Tie-up a small boat or kayak next to your home, and kayak from your front door up the Gorge, or to shops, restaurants, entertainment
