See a charming, cozy floating cottage with a functional open-plan

Ever wanted to escape into a pink dishrack? No, we haven't lost our minds: that's the name of the floating vacation rental we're about to tour today!
The Pink Dishrack is a sweet Canadian floating cottage, moored at the Westbay Marine Village in Victoria. Along with offering something unique to the area's visitors, this floating home is a bit of a local celebrity - making a brief cameo in the film Croon.

Want to see what makes this Pink Dishrack a shining star? Then follow us along closely:
On show, we have a floating home with stunning wooden trim and front-seat views of the idyllic harbor.
Emerald green is the color of choice for the window frames and roof. On the side, you'll find a sign with this floating home's name - and there's another hidden at the back of the cottage too.
A red door gives this charming abode just the right amount of vibrancy.
The cozy dining area is conveniently close to the kitchen. Functionality is the main focus for this nourishing corner of the house, and decor is practically non-existent.
This floating home packs a lot into its first floor. You're seeing a living area right now - but the bed is actually fitted right next to it.
Unlike the kitchen, the living room is much more generous with its colorful touches. Don't you just love that mosaic adorning the fireplace mantle?
You might have noticed there's a ladder by the door. The Pink Dishrack actually has two stories, but only the first is open to visitors (now you know why everything is confined to this open-plan area!).
What's a floating home without a touch of water-inspired embellishments? Having the lakeside right by the comfy bed just adds to the entire experience.
If you feel like being productive, there's a desk tucked right by the Pink Dishrack's entrance. It complements the rest of the bed and its side tables quite well, don't you agree?
Last but not least, we get a sneak peek inside this floating cottage's bathroom. It's the minute details that give this room an elegant flair, from the wall tiling to the taps on the basin.
