This is a great place to stay when in Vancouver. Some might say they want to be closer to downtown but we found it very easy to trip down the freeway and across Lion's Gate bridge, which goes through Stanley park and leads you right into the downtown, about 15 minutes. You can easily get to most of the good places-the aquarium, the tower overlooking the city, gastown, and so forth, plus its right next to the ferry to the sunshine coast and easy drive to Capilano and Whistler all of which are the opposite direction from downtown, so this is central from that perspective. The property itself is a walkout with good window light and you have a private patio and table right outside your door. The interior includes a washer dryer and is very well appointed, very well maintained and has lots of space which was needed as I was travelling with my son and his fiancé (lol). In addition there is lots of privacy and Valerie provides everything one would need in the kitchen and bedrooms, including TV, DVD, and parking, books to read, etc. Lots of tourist info is provided in the suite and you are a block from Blenz coffee and 2 blocks from Starbucks if that appeals, plus 3 or 4 good restaurants and a little convenience store that carries most one would need for making your own meals.

My wife and I were returning to Vancouver from a week's holiday on the Sunshine Coast. Where we were staying was perfect and we did not think that it could be equalled - but it truly was. Ferry Walk House is everything that it says on the tin (in this case the website) and much much more. The "more" lies in Valerie William's welcome, not only its warmth but the fact that in setting up her rental suite Valerie has thought of absolutely everything - and its all of the highest quality, The "more" is also the fabulous location, in the centre of town, near the water and just a few steps away form the BC Ferry Terminal with its bus stop bus stop for the brilliant 250 bus which runs along Marine Drive into Vancouver city centre and its sister 257 Express service. We were sorry to leave -but hope to return.
Valerie is such a generous and attentive hostess. She brought us fresh fruit, supplied us cereal, snack bars and lots of other goodies. Knowing that we were planning to use the BBQ frequently, Valerie supplied us with all the necessary BBQ Tools, racks to cook on and filled up the gas tank! Knowing that parking is not easy downtown Vancouver, we took the Express bus that was one street away from the house which took 30 minutes into Vancouver. It was great, no hassles and easy transport. For those who enjoy hiking, it is perfectly located where you can hike in Vancouver West, North, Squamish or Whistler and more. We loved coming home after a days hike and cooking up a good meal and eating out on our private terrace. It was also nice to be able to walk over in Horseshoe Bay to the boutiques and walkway. We celebrated my husband's 60th BDay at the BoatHouse restaurant which was extremely good only a 10 minute walk away from home. The suite was extremely clean and comfortable. We loved everything about our stay and would love to come back. Thank you Valerie for making our stay a pleasant one! Louise, Robert and Lorraine
Just returned from our stay at Ferry Walk House. It was in a great location, and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the marina, and the ferry terminal. While not in Vancouver, it was still easy to get into the city center and other places; by car or bus. Enjoying a coffee at the end of the day looking out at beautiful Horseshoe Bay was a special treat. The house itself was very clean and comfortable, it was a wonderful place to return to after a day of activities. Valerie was a great host, and made sure we were always comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Valerie.
Virginia, Paul & Sarah, it was a pleasure having you to stay and thanks for the great review!! I'm so glad you were able to get around to see so many different places. As you say, it's easy to get into the city from here and I'm glad you also enjoyed being in Horseshoe Bay. It sounds like you discovered the "Lookout" coffee shop with the fantastic view that overlooks the marina and the ferries coming in and out. It's a great place to "hang out" at any time of the day.
My husband and I stayed at the Ferry Walk House July 18-22. When we arrived Valerie met us with a big bowl of fresh fruit, which was awesome. The house was super clean and a perfect set up for us. We made our own breakfast every morning and pack up our lunches for our long hikes we did. We drove just a little North and went hiking to the top of Sea to Sky where we took the gondola ride back down the mountain. It was an amazing hike, but for advanced hikers. They do not advise hiking back down, which was just perfect because it took over 4 hours to hike up. We spent the day in Vancouver city, which was amazing., We also went to the park in Horse Shoe Bay, a 4 minute drive or a 1/2 hour walk to the park to watch the beautiful sunset. We took along a bottle of wine, blanket and some snacks. We saw some dolphins and a sea lion along with the sunset. We explored Horse Shoe Bay and a few other close by cities. Great part of our vacation out West! Absolutely beautiful views of the mountains and sea! Would highly recommend Ferry Walk House. Valerie is wonderful! Thank you again!
Sharon & Joe, thanks for the great review. I am glad you mentioned that 4 hour hike - it sounded amazing and my hat is off to you for doing it. Personally I heartily recommend the gondola BOTH ways for that fabulous view!! Taking a bottle of wine and a blanket to Whytecliff Park was a great idea...I'm glad the dophinsand sea lion came by to say hello.
My Fiance and I stayed at the Ferry Walk house from July 7th-14th and everything was wonderful. The house is in a great location. It is away from the city, but still close enough to everything. Horseshoe bay is a wonderful little place, with great restaurants and it's right on the water. Everything is a two minute walk from the house. We did a snorkeling tour with sea lions that left right from the bay. Valerie herself was a wonderful host who made sure we had everything we needed. We had an absolutely wonderful vacation and hope to make it back to the Ferry Walk house someday!
Thank you Allie & Andrew. I am so glad you enjoyed your first visit to the west coast. You managed to pack a lot of adventures into one week - especially driving to Chilliwack to go fishing on the Fraser River. Your photos of those enormous sturgeon were impressive!! I hope to see you again.
Valerie's apartment was just perfect. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a home from home. A fantastic location for the ferries to the islands and the sunshine coast just two minutes from the door. Buses to Vancouver at least every half hour which makes it a great alternative to staying in Vancouver. Only 25mins from downntown and a beautiful location. What more could you ask for? Lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from if you want to eat out. If not Valerie provides a well equipt kitchen and a lovely well furnished apartment to relax in. Lovely private garden too. She was a wonderful host and made us feel at home. 4 days wasn't long enough to appreciate all that Horseshoe Bay had to offer but Im sure we will be back. Thank you Valerie!
Thank you Maggie & Derek. You were both living proof that a car is not needed to enjoy being here. You managed to pack a lot into 4 days and it's great to know you're coming back next year.
The minute you walk in, you know that you made a great choice by selecting this beautiful place. Valerie is very friendly and makes you feel right at “home” away from home from the get go! Her lovely house is surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers that I truly appreciated. We never ran out of places to go, and the bay was just a few minutes walk away. We also found it easy to just relax and watch NetFlix while our dogs enjoyed the courtyard. THANK YOU Valerie for making it safe and quite enjoyable at the same time.
Darla and Patty it was a delight to have you to stay. I'm so glad to hear you will be coming back next year.
Our stay at the Ferry Walk House was perfect. From the Netflix on TV, to the pet friendly nature of the suite, to the fact that the suite is spotless and also literally steps from the ferry terminal, this is the perfect vacation spot. Although you are so close to the city you really don't feel like it with the mountains and ocean at your doorstep. Valerie was so welcoming to us and our dog Hank. We have found a new place to stay when we vacation in the big city :)
Kim, I'm so glad everything worked so well for the wedding in West Vancouver, including the weather!! I am looking forward to seeing you back again.
Very beautiful area with great restaurants, outstanding scenery and well located to visit area sites with car like Whistler, Squamish, and Vancouver area. 2 minute walk to the ferries to visit other locations. The unit is clean, well laid out and perfect for 4 with the additional bedroom. Very quite area and Valerie is very welcoming. Also very pet friendly. Thank you Valerie, you have a great place and hope to see you again. Highly recommend!
Thanks for the great review Alan. It was a pleasure to have such an easy going, friendly family to stay and I'm glad you all had such a good time. I really enjoyed looking after Zoey for a day - not all dogs are so good with cats!! Come again soon!!
We have had a truly wonderful stay at Ferry Walk House! Valerie - your hospitality and thoughtfulness has meant so much to us. The location is perfect and we have enjoyed our daily walks around Horseshoe Bay and trying out some of the restaurants - Olive & Anchor for fish and chips and the patio at Bay Moorings. It has been lovely to get to know you Valerie and we look forward to returning again soon!
Valerie your accommodation was just excellent for our needs. We couldn't have been happier with your space or your lovely manner. It is difficult to find adequate lodging for wheelchair bound individuals, we were so happy your space was easily manageable for us to feel comfortable. Thank you, thank you for your hospitality.
Michelle, Angela and Mary, I am delighted it worked out so well for you. Having French doors is certainly a bonus for moving a wheelchair in and out!! It was a long drive for you to get here, but I do hope you'll come again. Thank you for leaving the suite so neat and tidy.
We really enjoyed our time at Valerie's. She was very helpful and did everything to accommodate us. The condo was spotless. We even entertained friends one evening and had everything we needed. I would certainly recommend it as great place to stay. If I can add, there were only the two of us, but the deal for the second bedroom would make it an exceptional place to stay for a family or two couples. Valerie - maybe next time we will bring Pedro and Molly. Scott
Scott and Cindy, it was a pleasure to have you as guests. I'm glad you had such nice weather for your day trip to the Sunshine Coast. The beautiful flowers you brought with you were still going strong several days after you left. I really enjoyed them!! Please bring Pedro and Molly next time - I'm always happy to have four legged visitors 😋
Thank you, Valerie, for a wonderful stay at Ferry Walk while we were in between homes. The suite was perfect for our family, and the fact that you were welcoming to our dog, too, was amazing! We felt right at home and appreciated everything you did for us! Highly recommended!
Leanna and Jason it was such a pleasure to have you and Dominique staying for 2 months. Looking after Bella was a treat for me - as you may have gathered, I love dogs!! Thank you to Dominique for looking after my cats when I was away. I'm so glad we are now neighbors and you are living close by.
Ferry Walk House is a wonderful place to stay. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly want and more. Very comfortable as well. Gracious host , very helpful and thoughtful. Would definitely stay there again.
Carol, it was a pleasure having you and your two very well behaved dogs to stay. I look forward to seeing you again.
This was our first time of trying a VRBO property. We could not have been more pleased. Property is extremely well cared for and this is only the beginning of the surprises that await as you enter an excellent outdoor patio that is very private and allows one the time to have your morning coffee Excellent thought to interior design, both to maximize the space but also your comfort. The owner Valerie Williams is an absolute jewel as the host of this property (there when you need someone and quietly out of the way when you don't) I can not wait for my next trip to this area as I know exactly where I will stay. That's why I given her 2 thumbs up
Thanks for the great review Michael. I am returning the 2 thumbs up to you and Gail for being wonderful and appreciative guests. I can't wait for you to come back again. Now that you have made friends with several shop owners in Horseshoe Bay, there will be plenty of smiling people saying "welcome back".
Ferry walk place was my "home" for 2 months. It was fully stocked with everything I needed and super close to everything I wanted! Starbucks, restaurants, ferry terminal, walking trails etc. The bathroom in the suite was very nicely renovated and new. Hot water was instant and nice and hot. Shower pressure was perfect. The bedroom was comfortable and calm. It was nice to have Netflix and other Apple TV features and the desk allowed me to work from home. All in all it was a lovely experience. Valerie was also a pleasure to deal with, with no issues whatsoever. Thank you.
Silvia, it was a pleasure having you and I'm glad the desk was so useful for you to work from home. Although you didn't mention it, I now have a custom made foam cushion for the desk chair so guests are more comfortable. Thanks for choosing Ferry Walk House for your in between home.
we found Valerie and ferry walk house to be beautifully situated near shops, restaurants, ferries and public transport. Valerie has managed to anticipate your every requirement with intuitive skill (thanks for the cellotape Valerie) and we had a beautiful holiday. We are returning for another holiday one day, Very highly recommended.
Don and Sue, you were wonderful guests and I so enjoyed that Don celebrated his 80th birthday while you were here. What a wonderful array of cards - I hope you enjoyed the photo. I'm so glad to hear you are already planning to come again for your 85th birthday. I can't wait!! Thanks for your email Sue, I am happy we are staying in touch.
My husband and I stayed at Ferry Walk House over the Labour Day weekend, as we were attending a wedding in West Vancouver. We found both Valerie and Ferry Walk House to be wonderful - Valerie was extremely helpful (providing an umbrella for a garden wedding in iffy weather) and gracious, and the apartment itself is beautifully fitted with everything needed for a short or long stay. Highly recommended.
Thanks so much for your great review Joan. I hope you and Gary had a safe drive all the way back to Ontario. I'm so glad you didn't need the umbrella for the wedding. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to hear all about it!! The umbrella is now available for guests who may not be as lucky as you two :)
We stayed at Horseshoe Bay on our way back from Vancouver Island and it was just what we needed. Valerie had everything we needed even extra little snacks and jams, which was a very nice touch. The home was very clean and beautifully designed. Just nearby are shops, coffee bars and some nice restaurants with views over the harbour. Being Pet friendly was a must for our medium sized dog Roxanne and we are so glad we were able to stay here and would definitely stay again if planning a trip to Vancouver.
Our family loved Ferry Walk House, so comfortable and well kept it was a delight to return every day from one of our adventures. Ferry to Bowen Island was one of our favorites, also the eco- tour from Sewells marina loved going down to the beach when tide was out and seeing beautiful starfish. Horseshoe bay is amazing, hope to go back soon.
Thanks for listing some of your favourite activities Carol. Bowen Island is a favourite destination with the 20 minute ferry ride. I hope you will check out the ferry to Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast the next time you come!! Hoping to see you again.
Ferry Walk House was a fantastic place for our 3 week stay. Without asking for anything, Valerie had supplied enough food for our first day which was a great start. The place was perfect for us to visit family on Bowen Island as the ferry terminal is so close, plus Valerie had an extra room for our grandchildren to stay overnight. Valerie is a friendly and helpful person and helped us a lot when we had changes made with our flight back to Australia. The place was spotless and well stocked for our comfort, plus the location is beautiful and close to shops, restaurants etc. We cannot recommend this highly enough, and would not hesitate staying again if we return to Vancouver.
My stay at Valerie's charming Ferry Walk was wonderful - from the cozy fireplace in the winter, to the lovely patio in the summer, everything was to my satisfaction. Valerie is a warm host as well! I highly recommend Ferry Walk house for a short term stay. Super clean, well organized home away from home. Horseshoe Bay is a great little village, and everything from a cup of coffee to glass of wine is within short walking distance. This is a well kept, lovely little place to call home!
Thanks for your kind words Evelyn. It was a pleasure having you as a long term guest over the winter months. I'm glad you were here long enough to enjoy the garden patio in warm weather. I miss hearing all the laughter coming from the patio when you and John had guests over.
Ferry Walk House had every thing we needed for a perfect vacation in Vancouver. It is very clean, well appointed, private and located within a 5 minute walk to all conveniences and transportation. Valerie was always available but we needed nothing. The Wi-Fi allowed us to stay in touch and even do a little work. We were surprised at how well Valerie had stocked us for our breakfasts and snacks. This is way above class.
Vivian and Harry, it was a pleasure having you to stay - even though I hardly saw you!! I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast goodies and snacks. I like guests to feel they don't have to rush out the door to go grocery shopping the moment they arrive. A "home from home" needs something to eat!!.
Ferry Walk House is the perfect place for a restful, beautiful vacation in B.C. The bus system provides easy access to every thing great. There is a convenient parking space but a car was not needed and made for a more leisurely paced week. Great wi-fi for staying in touch. Bus to Dunderave (sp), walk along the sea to Amble Side for coffee and scone at Savory Island and Pie. Watch for the eagles along the shore. Horse Shoe Bay is breathtaking. H Snyder
Thanks so much for your review Harry. It's really helpful for guests to know that a car is not essential. Next time you come, try a slice of pie at the Savary Island Pie Company. Yummy!! Better still buy the whole thing, add ice cream and feel free to share :) Come again soon!!
What a wonderful place to come home to after a day of sight seeing and adventuring. The location is ideal and within easy reach of a number of other attractions. It is spacious, clean, well supplied with all the essentials you could want or need. The patio is lovely and secluded,I enjoyed sitting out there in the early morning. Having a handicap was not a problem for me. I was totally comfortable. The proprietor is a lovely woman who makes you feel welcome and offers assistance and information but does not intrude. I would happily recommend this accommodation to my friends, family and tourists looking for a nice place to stay. We found the Sea Safari a lot of fun and the ferry ride over to the island was lovely but there were too many other places and activities that it was hard to choose just one or two to mention here. If I am ever fortunate enough to come out west again, I would love to stay here again.
Dear Ursula and Elizabeth. Thank you for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree that there are almost too many activities to choose from!! The Sea Safari is clearly really popular. My cats Tango and Fergus loved all the extra attention you gave them. Come back soon!!
I stayed here with my mother for three nights and highly recommend it. The location makes it an ideal base for travel to Whistler, Vancouver and Bowen Island. Horseshoe Bay itself is a lovely village with good restaurants and all the amenities you could want. The apartment is spotlessly clean, comfortable and both thoughtfully and tastefully appointed, with many nice touches to make it feel homey rather than sterile. I especially appreciated the real feather pillows, the selection of tea, coffee and snacks (even dog treats!) provided and the toiletries on hand should you have forgotten anything. The outdoor space is a lovely place for an alfresco meal or drink, with beautiful flowers, comfy patio furniture and twinkly patio lights for the evening. Valerie is a wonderful hostess who kept in touch without being intrusive and truly made us feel like we were valued guests.
Thank you Elizabeth. Your very positive review means a lot to me. I'm so glad it turned out to be such a great vacation for you and your mother. She's a lucky Mom!!
We had an incredible time staying at this residence in Horseshoe Bay! Valerie is an amazing host, providing us with all the information, amenities and accommodation for all 4 of us. We were so excited to stay within a walking distance from all the restaurants, shops, and the marina. One day, we rented a boat and got a chance to cruise around Bowen Island and the neighboring places around Horseshoe Bay. We saw sea lions and wild birds, ate some of the most delicious seafood at the Boathouse and Bay Mornings, and were able to catch our early ferry to Victoria, which is conveniently located down the road. We will definitely come back to Horseshoe Bay because there's nothing more relaxing than being surrounded by mountains, water, and beautiful scenery. We recommend Valerie and her residence for anyone who wishes to get away from the noisy city and have a nice relaxing time at the bay. It's the perfect getaway! Thanks again Valerie!
I'm glad you all had such a great time Sveta. The "Sea Safari" from Sewell's Marina is a great way to enjoy the wildlife and scenery, although I'm sorry you didn't see any whales!! After you left, it was a lovely surprise to find the towels already washed - thank you :)
We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed at the Valerie's Ferry Walk House for a very pleasant week. Valerie was very responsive pre-booking and always available to help during the stay. What you see in the (very nice) pictures is what you get. Everything is new. The unit has a full size washing machine, full size dryer, full size dishwasher (portable) and even an Apple TV with Netflix. Valerie set up the second bedroom with an additional single air-bed for all kids to use. There is a TV there with its own cable box. Parents will get the idea... :) The Horseshoe Bay village is a very short walk away. Many places to eat, a playground and just fun to walk and watch the ferries come in. Whytecliff Park is a very short drive away and highly recommended. If you are considering a place to stay in Horseshoe Bay - choose Valerie's - it's a sure bet!
Hi Ron, Thanks for the review. You have a lovely family and I really appreciated the tidy suite when you left - especially the towels in the laundry basket ready to wash!! I hope the kids are enjoying the swimming pool in Whistler.
My husband and I stayed at this property in June of 2014 with our small baby and our dog while our home was being renovated. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it, especially for families with a dog. The unit was very well equipped, clean and well maintained. It was also nice and quiet when our baby needed to nap. Valerie was very helpful in answering all of our questions. The property is about a 20 minute drive to downtown and so it would be a good home base for tourists wanting to see that area as well as Vacouver Island and/or Whistler. The property is a very short walk to the horse shoe bay ferry terminal and many other amenities in the village, including transit.
Thanks Kim for posting this review. I'm glad I was able to help out when you needed to escape the dust of your home renovation. As I'm sure you gathered, I love babies and dogs, making it a pleasure to have you to stay :)
Thank you Valerie for providing my 7 month old son, our energetic dog, my sister and I such a wonderful and welcoming stay. We enjoyed the lovely patio very much. It was helpful for me to not have to worry about packing all the baby items as you had everything we needed to make it feel like home. My son was delighted with the exersaucer! I thoroughly enjoyed morning walks to Flour Bakery where I discovered the most delicious chocolate croissants. I hope we will be able to return very soon for another relaxing visit.
Hi Nicola, I am so glad the two of you enjoyed a relaxing holiday. The chocolate croissants at "Flour" are a local secret because they usually sell out by 8:00 AM!! You will have to come again before Cameron gets to big for the exersaucer... he clearly loved it.
We had a delightful time at Valerie's apartment. It was welcoming, well-appointed and perfectly located. We even got to leave our dog with Valerie for an evening, meaning he had a great time too. If you want to go to downtown Vancouver from fabulous Horseshoe Bay, do what we did: park at the Londsdale Quay and ferry over to downtown. We had a blast and avoided the traffic. There really couldn't be a better spot from which to explore the North and South shores of Vancouver than Valerie's.
Thanks Catherine, I'm so glad you both enjoyed your stay. What a great idea to take the sea bus over to downtown. I enjoyed looking after Horatio for the evening and the chocolates you brought back were delicious!! I hope you and Gaelen will come again :)
Walking distance to Horseshoe Bay with restaurants, boat rental and fantastic views. There's also a few coffee shops and small markets. We stayed here because it's within driving distance of Vancouver and North Vancouver, but in a less populated area. The property is literally across the street from the ferry terminal. The condo is very modern and tastefully decorated. We appreciated the small snacks including fresh fruit and cold water when we arrived. The gas burning fireplace was nice and there is plenty of counter space for cooking if you so desire. The internet was fast and reliable which is important to us. We had a few special requests from Valerie which she accommodated right away. Our dog was slipping on the smooth laminate wood flooring and Valerie got us several rugs right away so our dog could walk around more easily. Also, she turned up the heat for us when we asked and allowed us to keep our dog a few hours over our checkout time while we went biking. Valerie is a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. Also, there is a community center a few min away by car with a gym (6.50/day drop in) and a nice trail for walking your dog a few min by car. The waterfront park on Horseshoe Bay doesn't allow dogs. We ate at the Olive and Anchor which was great!
Thank you Andrew for writing such a positive review. I'm so glad the weather cleared up on your second day so you could both go hiking. I will definitely have plenty of rugs in place for Bella if you come back again!! Thanks again, Valerie
Beautiful and clean accommodation rented by friendly host. Perfect location for BC ferries to Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast. Ideally located in Horseshoe bay village and easy transport links to downtown Vancouver. Perfect get away spot.
Thank you for your kind words Kathryn. It was a pleasure having you both as guests. I hope you will come to stay again.
