PRIME DOWNTOWN DESIGNER PENTHOUSE STUNNING VIEWS & ROOF DECK

Vancouver Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy the best views Vancouver has to offer while surrounding yourself with style and luxury. Located on the 33rd floor in the heart of downtown Vancouver and Yaletown, this penthouse suite offers stunning views from every room.

Featuring over 1400 sq ft of indoor/outdoor living space, this impressive condo boasts top of the line features and designer finishes. From the European style kitchen with stainless appliances and limestone countertops, to the luxurious master bath with double sinks, enclosed glass shower and deep soaker tub, you will enjoy nothing but the best.

Follow the marble staircase up the two flights of stairs to the spectacular private roof top deck. From here you can enjoy the stunning sunsets and a prime view to Vancouver's annual 'Festival of Light' fireworks competition without the crowds on your comfortable and private roof top deck.

Expansive floor to ceiling glass windows showcase the sweeping views of English Bay and spectacular seaside sunsets. Conveniently located and only steps away from internationally acclaimed cuisine and culture.

The building has an exercise facility equipped with stationary bikes, treadmills, elliptical machines and weight circuit. In the summer months there is also an outdoor lap pool that is open for a swim or for a dip to cool off. A secure, underground parking spot is provided during your stay should you be traveling with a vehicle.

Located in the most central area of downtown Vancouver at the intersection of Seymour Street and Davie Street, the location is unbeatable for convenience. A 5 minute walk and you are in the heart of Yaletown, a converted warehouse district with an energetic bar and gourmet restaurant scene. Go 10 minutes west and you are in the heart of the West End and Davie Street. Here you will find a melange of international casual dining restaurants and eclectic boutiques. Davie street is home to well over a dozen Asian fusion and sushi restaurants, with prices so good you will become a regular of your favorite spot in no time!

If you are interested in art and theater, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Orpheum Theater (home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra) are both a 10 minute walk away. If you tire of walking, a 'must do' is a quick 10 minute trip on the Aquabus, a foot passenger ferry that crosses False Creek to Granville Island. This is a heritage site of old industrial buildings which now houses a bustling market of fresh and prepared food, local artisans, and an always changing array of street performers. This is also home to the Arts Club Theater, Vancouver's professional live theater group. With productions that range from musicals, to contemporary comedies and classics, a night here is sure to be memorable.

For those visiting during the ski season, there are three local ski hills that you can reach by car in 30 minutes. Whistler mountain, an international ski resort is a less than 2hr drive up the scenic sea to sky highway and is spectacular to visit anytime of year.

Vancouver is a fantastic city to explore on foot, and the Skybox penthouse suite offers you a perch in the city and place to relax and enjoy the stunning views. Public transportation stops right across the street from building entrance and the Canada Line Yaletown/Roundhouse station is four blocks away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We travel to Vancouver about three times a year. We were very happy to once again stay at The Skybox. This apartment is just great and a very cool spot to launch forays into the very hip Vancouver scene. The Vancity Theater is connected to the building where foreign and independent films are shown. We happened to catch the tail end of the Vancouver International Film Festival. What a cool thing to have so close to the apartment. The apartment has a very stylish interior, great contemporary kitchen. We cooked breakfast every morning but with all the fantastic restaurants within easy walking distance we always had dinner out. From fine dining to authentic, tasty and cheap ethnic foods, its all there.



One thing we do appreciate in rentals is a kitchen stocked with a few essentials like Olive oil and a few spices. The Skybox had that and a lot more. We have stayed in rentals that had absolutely nothing in the kitchen. You really don't want to purchase olive oil, salt and spices if you are there for a just a little while.



One of the best features is the incredible view from the floor to ceiling windows. Even if it was a rainy day and we wanted to stay close to home we weren't missing out on some great scenery. The owner is very responsive to suggestions and after a mention on our last visit she quickly added some great reading lamps for the bedroom.



The upper deck is truly incredible. The view and all the greenery really make it a special spot, definitely plan to spend some time up there!

We are a creative, urban couple who love to travel and enjoy environments with style.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

The location couldn't be better for exploring the best of what Vancouver has to offer.

Walking through the door and taking in the spectacular view will leave you speechless. Floor to ceiling glass gives you unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean while being nestled amongst the city skyline line.

SPECTACULAR VANCITY GEM...

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular 270 views, tasteful interior design and high-end finishes, wonderful hand-picked art pieces, all the amenities, centrally located within minutes to Yaletown, Seawall, Downtown - and the Hockey stadium (!), add-in a super-generous owner who stocks organic fair-trade coffee, teas, wine and juices for your arrival - beyond our expectations.
This was our first visit to Vancouver - and the City has instantly become one of our favorites in the world, yet, what made our stay a once-in-a-lifetime is Skybox. We are already planning when to visit next.
Many thanks to owner, very much appreciated.

INCREDIBLE VIEW AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this amazing penthouse condo for our honeymoon. We LOVED it! We rented a car and parking was easy in the underground garage. The key code access to everywhere made us feel very secure along with the code to get into the penthouse itself. The central location allowed us to walk to pretty much anywhere in the city. The view from the patio was gorgeous and the sunsets were breathtaking. We loved being able to grocery shop, so we didn't have to eat out for every meal. We also loved having a home base that wasn't a hotel to come back to, made it feel more like home. My husband appreciated all the technology as well! Everything has a remote or is automatic! I would definitely stay here again if we come back to Vancouver! Beautiful city and beautiful condo!

JUST RETURNED AND LONGING TO RETURN TO THE SKYBOX ALREADY...

  • 5 of 5
If you want a memorable stay in this beautiful city, look no further. The Skybox is an extraordinary place. My son moved to Vancouver in October and this was my first trip to visit him. There could not have been a more perfect place to stay. The decor is so tasteful with great attention to detail visible in every room. The views are magnificent. The space is so comfortable and welcoming....and spotless. We feel so blessed that Kelli shared her beautiful home with us.
When I told my son that I would like to live here in the Skybox, he replied, "Mom, if you lived here, I would have to move in with my mother again." Can you think of a greater complement for the Skybox?

SKYBOX WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
The photos on VRBO wowed us and definitely were the reason we chose to rent the Skybox unit. We were a little worried the condo wasn't as nice in person, however this was definitely NOT the case. Skybox was lovely... the views are sensational by day and especially by night. Kelli has decorated and stocked the place well - very good attention to detail. We walked the city and neighborhoods and feel the Yaletown location provides the best for access to markets, restaurants, rail/bus system, night life, shopping. It's all right there. The only bad thing was we didn't want to go out - just wanted to enjoy the sunsets on the rooftop. It definitely is a destination in itself! Thanks Kelli, for offering the Skybox to others to enjoy. It definitely made our stay memorable!!

THE BEST VIEWS OF VANCOUVER

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I stayed for 8 days in this 33rd floor skybox apartment for our 30th wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. The photos are accurate - the apartment is lovely - but even we were stunned by the views. The floor-to-ceiling windows steal the show, as does the view of English Bay from every room in the apartment, especially the rooftop terrace. It was difficult to pry ourselves from the apartment to experience Vancouver, but we did.

Sun shades in the bedroom and bathroom help prevent the apartment from getting too warm on sunny days, and great curtains help block the sun if you're a late sleeper. One word of caution - if you're bashful, the lack of curtains in the master bath may cause some anxiety. The sun shade helps some, but will not block others' view of you at night. Don't let that scare you, though. There is enough light from the city to help you navigate in the darkness, and taking advantage of that soaking tub while taking in the lights of the city is quite a treat.

The kitchen was extremely well-stocked and we appreciated the special touches like fresh sunflowers, plenty of coffee/tea supplies, well-maintained appliances and the stacked washer/dryer as well as a great collection of local tourist information. Also, this apartment had the best "Welcome/Info" book we've ever seen in a rental. It's obvious the owner's have put a lot of effort into making this a top-notch rental. For that, we are very grateful.

Climate control was a non-issue. The thermostats are really easy to understand and use, as is the lighting and TV/music system. We found everything at our fingertips and directions in the book were very easy to follow.

The best part of the apartment is the private rooftop terrace. It's simply amazing. If the weather is good, you'll find yourself up there at all times of the day. The 180+ degree views of Vancouver are spectacular, but the sunsets over English Bay are the real show stoppers. The Starbucks on the ground floor is also a bonus.

We loved everything about this apartment. It's breathtaking and definitely worth a stay.
