My wife and I had an excellent time in Vancouver, and in part it was to this great rental. My impression beforehand was that there were one or two local cafes or restaurants, but in reality it's a half block off of W Broadway which is miles of shops, restaurants, and bars. That being said, it's not a loud area and the house was very quiet so the sleep was good. The studio was clean and in good order, and Linda was responsive and kind. She made it a breeze and I would stay here again.
