Living The Dot Com Waterfront Lifestyle

Yes, the rumors were true. I have moved away from West Vancouver and relocated to our friendly neighbor to the south. Many will question why I would leave the number 4 city in the world for the number 4 city in the USA. I might get into that in a future post but for now, it’s enough to say that I can live the Dot Com Lifestyle anywhere in the world.

I haven’t settled into the new place yet. There’s still a lot to do and stuff to move before I can hold the Dot Com house warming party. For now, I’ll give you a few teaser pics of my new waterfront crib.

BTW – I’ll be back in Vancouver this weekend so it looks like last week’s Dot Com Pho won’t my be last after all. I hope to see you at Happy Pho this Saturday!

    Thanks For Telling

    1. Boy this one is really beautiful …

      Although view from your Vancouver home was also great.

      Many people will not agree with your decision of leaving Vancouver …

      So we are waiting for the detailed post from you.

      1. John this is simply amazing.

        In true sense you are enjoying your dot com life style.

        What about Sally’s education ?

        1. @ Social Bookmarking Service

          I would love to give a try to your service.

          I will be in touch with you from your website.

          1. The landscape is amazing John. Can’t wait for your coming post..

          2. d3so says:

            The Views are remarkable. Though, it doesn’t suit my current taste.

          3. Dan Lew says:

            I am sure you are going to miss not having John around in Canada?

        2. ohh……..thats typical “indian style question” เคฌเคšเฅเคšเฅ‹ เค•เฅ€ เคชเคขเคพเคˆ เค•เคพ เค•เฅเคฏเคพ เคนเฅ‹เค—เคพ? -) . Sally is enjoying holidays. Great view in first photograph john. Have Fun.

          1. Friend Shanker you are also father of a son and I am sure you worry about his study … after all its a matter of his future ..

            This is not Indian style this is universal style …

          2. Sahil Kotak says:

            Agree ZK, it’s all about his/her life.

      2. I’ll be using your service here shortly as well

    2. It truly is beautiful! I’m rather jealous.

    3. Beautiful new place, John! Congratulations and hope you get time to enjoy it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hey John,

        Very nice place and I’m glad that you’ll be back in Vancouver for the Dot Com Pho this weekend.

        The last Pho was your last Pho before you moved so my post about it is still correct.


        1. d3so says:

          I can’t wait to see the episode because the last one didn’t seem like a goodbye based on what was showed.

          1. It wasn’t a real goodbye but more like see you less often. It’s not like he moved that far away.

          2. Comeon … he is not going to another galaxy … so goodbye terms are not appropriate for today’s world.

  2. Harshad says:

    Pretty Amazing. Do you own that boat as well? Its fabulous.

    1. John is yet to settle at there … so I do not think that he purchased that one …

      But may be in coming days …

    2. Jeff Caceres says:

      I agree mate. I’m not sure if the boat is owned by John or not. But at least he’s making a dot com living a the waterfront.

      One day I would live my own happy lifestyle with my family. LOL

      1. Dan Lew says:

        Hey Alan, good to see you here mate, that can be our dream yeah? Keep living the dream my friend, don’t give up on me!

        1. Jeff Caceres says:

          Hahaha! You just mentioned my real name mate! Anyway it’s fine, because everybody calls me Jeff as my nick.

          I like the design of the treehouse. ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. I am sure John, you will spend quality times in fishing …

          2. Yeah. That is one of the most interesting hobbies that you can do in your new home John. It is relaxing and gives you time to think more on another boom idea..

          3. I’m not aware that John is a fishing enthusiast. He could be so I’ll ask him about that.

          4. When you live on fishing ground like that, you will learn to be if you’re not already:)

          5. @ Email

            John simply love fishing or I should say that John love every free things.

            Here is one post about fishing –

    3. If not may be one day, he will buy it. ( That day is coming pretty soon)

  3. rayutube says:

    Seattle’s not bad. I guess if you’re earning the big USD bucks, you have to be there. Then again, there’s medical.

  4. Dan Lew says:

    Well done, I hope to be neighbors with you one day!

    1. Do not use word ONE DAY ….

      Because that day never come.

  5. Dino Vedo says:

    Nice pictures! Looks a bit isolated though? What city is this in?

    1. Jeff Caceres says:

      Seatlle I think, but I’m not sure about that Dino.

    2. John Chow says:

      Bellevue. The neighborhood is call Yarrow Point. It’s where Steve Ballmer lives. Bill’s house is nearby too.

      1. Jeff Caceres says:

        I see. I checked Yarrow Point in Google search, and it looks great and peaceful. It’s located in the greater Seattle area of the state of Washington. Wow! Good choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Dan Lew says:

        Yarrow Point, I have noted this, when I make my second million, I will see you there! ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. Dan Lew says:

            Thanks Zubin,

            I am going to need it! ๐Ÿ™‚

          2. Jeff Caceres says:

            I’m with you Dan! Same thing when I have enough money. ๐Ÿ™‚

          3. PPC Ian says:

            Same thing here too! Seems like an amazing place to live!

          4. Yes this is the place where you can recharge your all battery again.

      3. Great neighborhood you got there. Bill Gate is there? Then you have the chance to crack his “windows” John. ^^

        1. d3so says:

          lol. You could play ding dong ditch or light up the paperbag.

      4. So you have fix yourself between two big giants. Hope & i wish you rise so big people know that place with your name

  6. Louis says:

    I thought that you would move to Hawaii instead of Seattle ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Reason of such thought Louis ?

      1. Louis says:

        I thought that John wanted a sunny place ?
        From what I know Seattle is a rainy city ?

        1. PPC Ian says:

          Louis, just read the review of your blog! It’s great, congrats on being featured on John Chow!

        2. It’s almost always hazy and dreary up there, but if you want some good fishing, it’s awesome!

    2. John Chow says:

      This isn’t my final move. Just the first step. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. d3so says:

        Are you selling the house in Vancouver?

      2. Sahil Kotak says:

        hehe…so more changes to come. What would be your next choices?

        1. First step … towards what ?

  7. bwilson says:

    Nice, but now you need to buy a float-plane like your neighbors.

  8. Hope you have a good weekend John.It looks really nice.

  9. You do realize now that you are based out of the U.S. you will be required to follow our laws and regulations regarding business and blogging!

    1. John Chow says:

      They not that much different than Canada. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Dan Lew says:

        Aw, I see, there are laws, perhaps I will just buy a holiday house then. LOL!

      2. Some differences are you will have to:
        1. Pay taxes on all profits (higher than canada)
        2. You will have to disclose all posts you profit from

        And much more ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. Dan Lew says:

          Cmon Obama, be fair on these US and Canada Affiliates / Internet Marketers, you know us, we made you win the elections! ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. They won’t be helping him the second time around, don’t know if anything would help.

  10. Good move – according to CNN (see link above) there are lots of restaurants in the area, so John can keep writing appetizing blog posts

    (within 15 miles) 4,773

    Good luck in your new home

      1. Perhaps he will find a Japanese restaurant that serves normal sized portions of food. That would make for some nice pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Dwayne says:

    Good luck with the move!

  12. Wow nice spot John, all the best hope it all goes well bud.

  13. fas says:

    Awesome man, more pics plz.

    1. In fact we would like to see a long video for your new home.

  14. Gus says:

    Nice! I just laughed when I saw the boat ramp. Totally rocks… don’t forget the people in Pakistan. (I know you won’t, but just reminding everyone.)

    1. d3so says:

      What about the people in Pakistan?

      1. They have been having unprecedented floods. Look it up.

        1. Sahil Kotak says:

          They are more then 2 million people.

          1. Yeah.. Been hearing lots of this from the TV news.. And lots of market doing the donation for them too. But i guess it still won’t be enough.

  15. Jason says:

    Nice choice of a new place to live!

    I bet fishing will be great on that lake and Sally will love being able to go swimming.

    1. Yes this is simply perfect place.

      Just imagine an evening in front of water with cup of coffee.

      Simply amazing taste of life.

  16. Great place you have there John. It would be more interesting if you show us around with more pictures or videos. Hope to see your videos of your new home after you’ve settle down.
    It must be tiring to move over so take your time and have a nice enjoyable moment there.

  17. Greg Ellison says:

    The view is very awesome. I am sure you and your family is going to enjoy living there. Thanks Greg Ellison

  18. Caleb says:

    i compared this one to the other 10 on the list and this one is the only i’d pick..

    ..although i’m disappointed Austin is no longer on the list ๐Ÿ™

  19. S Ahsan says:

    The new place is slick. Good luck John, maybe ill see you in some dot com pho here in States, since we are neighbors (well to some extent). ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. James Wilcox says:

    I have friends that live in Bellvue and they absolutely love. It’s beautiful country. Congrats on the new pad, John. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

  21. John — I’m truly happy for you and your family on the move. My kids would love that treehouse — it’s awesome!

    Welcome to the USA, although I will miss your Canadian edge.

    1. d3so says:

      Yeah, John made Canada an awesome place.

  22. Karl Hadwen says:

    Wow John this is amazing. I hope that one day I get such a ‘crib’.

    1. d3so says:

      Ha, I hope John takes us on a video tour of his crib.

  23. Juan says:

    I envy you so much. Very nice crib.


  24. Wow Im definitely jealous, Keep up the hard work!

  25. Tony says:

    Great photos John, very inspiring! You make me want to get off my rear and get some things done. Keep it up you rock!

  26. Kate Kutny says:

    Wow the new place your going to move to looks amazing. And you are such a great Daddy! Congrats on the new place. You must be so excited to move in it soon!

  27. PPC Ian says:

    Huge congratulations! This is super news! The photos are awesome. Waterfront living is what it’s all about.

    1. d3so says:

      Yeah, but if a natural disaster hits, you’re screwed ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Sahil Kotak says:

        hehe…what about tsunami? ๐Ÿ˜€ :p

  28. Looks great! Have you already unpacked all the boxes, rofl? The last time we moved it took us only months to get all in place, we are getting better with every move. Looking forward to your reasons why you leaved Canada, SY

    1. He didn’t really leave Canada. He’s visiting it. One reason that he already hinted at I think is the climate. As you may have noticed he says that this is not his final move.

      I hope that it won’t happen but he may move much farther south one day.

  29. Congratulations John, you have truly inspired me today. It is amazing what you can achieve with hard work AND thinking outside of the box.What I admire about you is that you have a plan for your life and you are sticking to it.. Onwards and upwards. Stay blessed

  30. Brian McVay says:

    Congratulations John,
    It looks like a GREAT place.

  31. NICE! Visiting your blog and receiving your emails always inspires me to work harder and learn more every day.

    Congratulations on your new home!

  32. timmytim says:

    Welcome to our town John ๐Ÿ™‚
    Bellevue is truly a great place to live with low crime rates, awesome restaurants and shopping places, great schools, and even greater neighborhoods

  33. Now that is a sweet place! I don’t think you could get me off of the boats long enough to even sleep in the house!

  34. Rose Kline says:

    Hi John,
    You really are on the right track, there is nothing like enjoying your daughter.Once she is grown, you wonder where all the time went, I read a couple of your post but could not post, no idea why. i liked your description of living and thats what I am working for now,,

    I just started my first blog. I am being coached by Mark Terrell. He has the patience of a saint.,, He is really working to help us succeed.If you could,,I would appreciate any helpful feedback.If you care to visit my blog. Any help is appreciated.Someday I will live your life style.

    Best Wishes


  35. chris says:

    looks an amazing place, John. All the best with the move

  36. Wow – This place looks amazing! Congratulations on the big move John. That’s my dream someday, except a little further south (San Diego is where I want to end up with a beachfront home) ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. You have the financial freedom to move and enjoy your life because you didn’t give up John. In one of your videos you said you don’t like working for anyone and that led you to your success because you were focused on what you wanted. At the end it’s all in the mind.

    1. You have to have some serious drive and be willing to put in some serious effort to get to that level. Many times it’s just because they were willing to make more sacrifices than others were during the journey, but it paid off in the end.

  38. Nice John. I was impressed with your last pad but the view looks equally as awesome here.

  39. Sweet, you’re down in Washington now. Let me know when you want to hang out – I’m just over in Seattle ๐Ÿ˜€

  40. Your new place is sick John! Congrats and Enjoy!!

  41. Jane Lee says:

    Congratulations John on your move to Seattle. Welcome to the USA. Spectacular view of the vicinity.

  42. John when you are going to add more photos and video of your new house.

    We are starving.

    1. I would like to see some more pictures too. Your daughter’s tree house is wild!

  43. Wow….it’s very nice place. Bellevue is truly a great place to live with low crime rates, awesome restaurants and shopping places, great schools, and even greater neighborhoods

    1. Don’t forget the fishing!!! Would love to go fishing up there for a few weeks.

  44. We are still waiting to see more photos John.

  45. Matias says:

    Wow John, trully inspirational, thanks for share your lifestyle with us.


    How much longer are we going to have to wait for more photos or a video tour of the house??

  46. ibnujusup says:

    wow, your lifestyle was superb john… ๐Ÿ™‚ i really like the scenery there…it was beautiful and really have a calming effect..

  47. John when we are going to see more photos of your house.

    We are waiting.

  48. mike says:

    Congrats on the move, but we were still shocked SHOCKED that you decided to go south!

  49. valentina says:

    Yarrow Point! Know it well – now that you’ll be hobnobbing with billionaires the sites are set.

    All the best on your continued success!
