Located in the most central area of downtown Vancouver at the intersection of Seymour Street and Davie Street, the location is unbeatable for convenience.

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 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.
