We stayed in this condo before and we thought it was perfect. Now it is even better! Love the two new sofas in the living room, both with built in recliners. Love the new master bathroom, with big shower. Love the renovation in general, with new cabinets in the kitchen and in both of the bathrooms. The storage room boasts a new shelf that's highly functional.
We were just marveling about the perfect location of this condo: a couple of blocks from the Skytrain station that goes directly to the airport, a couple of blocks from the weekly Farmer's Market, tons of trendy restaurants and cafes right outside of the door, park and seawall right across the street, Aquabus right across the street that takes you to Granville Island within minutes, Urban Fare grocery store 5 minutes walk away, and really within walking distance to everything.
The condo is also stocked with plenty of towels, toilet paper, kitchen paper towels, dish washing detergent, liquid soap and shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. And my two favorites: a tea pot and a big non-stick wok for stir frying. The gym is quite nice and we enjoyed the elliptical machine and the pool, when we were not jogging outside along the seawall. The wireless internet is fast and the two TVs have high definition channels.
1. Yaletown Hapa Izakaya has a 5-6pm happy hour with half off food, e.g. $2-3 Endamame that are delicious!
2. Bahn Mi (Vietnamese Sandwich) from DDMau on Pacific Ave. is great. Our favorite is BBQ pork.
3. Yaletown farmer's market is on Thursday 2-6pm next to the Skytrain station.
