Vancouver Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den/enclosed sleeping area. 2 Baths,

1400 sq. ft. beautifully furnished apartment.

Corner unit facing South/West, floor to ceiling windows offering spectacular water and city view.

Situated on the 22nd floor in trendy Yaletown. Walking distance to 'DOWNTOWN' RESTAURANTS, THEATRES, ART GALLERY, LIBRARY, CHINATOWN THE SEA WALL and ROBSON STREET SHOPPING.

Despite being in the heart of the city, the design, furnishing and subtle colors of the apartment, create a peaceful oasis. Night time brings to life a different perspective when the lights of the city sparkle, giving an almost surreal ambiance.

Comfortable and easy, makes it a perfect choice for a city vacation.

FANTASTIC PROPERTY FOR A VANCOUVER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a pre-Alaskan cruise weekend in Vancouver, and had a wonderful time at Jillian and John's condo. They met us when we arrived and gave us an "aerial tour" of the surrounding neighborhood, complete with restaurant recommendations. The location of the condo is perfect for sightseeing and was within walking distance from tons of restaurants and an aquabus station. The views were incredible. We had 5 adults + 1 child and had plenty of space. Both the building and the parking garage were very secure. We would definitely recommend this condo to family and friends.

WONDERFUL CONDO, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful Yaletown condo. It was really our home away from home while in Vancouver for a week for our son's wedding. The listing describes the property well. We slept 6 very comfortably plus one baby in a playpen! The views are amazing and the location is great! You are close to lots of shopping and restaurants, within walking distance to downtown, and a quick walk to the seawalk at False Creek, and the aquabus rides were fun too. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we cooked while enjoying the views of Vancouver! Our favorite restaurant was the Blue Water Cafe, just a few short blocks walk. We would absolutely recommend this property to our family and friends and hope to stay here again ourselves!

THE ONLY PLACE WE WILL STAY IN VANCOUVER

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay in John and Gillian's condo and we loved every minute of it. As other reviewers have noted, the condo is beautifully situated in Yaletown and within blocks of all that the area has to offer. The condo itself is absolutely wonderful and has all the amenities of a home. The living/kitchen/dining spaces all have breathtaking views and plenty of natural light. The kitchen was stocked better than my one at home and a joy to cook in! The master bedroom is small by US standards but perfect for two. The queen bed was comfy and the master bath has a great bathtub for relaxing. The second bedroom is an office/bedroom combo with a pull down wall bed. Once the bed is down there is not much room for moving around but it is just fine for sleeping. The 3rd bed is another wall bed in the solarium right off the dining room. Again, very small room but perfect for sleeping.
The second bathroom is off the entry way and has a shower.

The condo has a fantastic DVD/CD library and all the travel books you could imagine. The owners love of travel is evident in the decor as they have brought many of their treasures home with them. They have created a beautiful zen like environment in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

Thank you John and Gillian for another lovely stay. We will be back!

The apartment was wonderful! The view from the 22nd floor was impressive. A small table and 2 chairs on the patio would have been a perfect touch for morning breakfast (my only recommendation). The location was perfect, close to the water taxi to Granville Island, the shoreline walking/bike riding path and the delicious restaurants just 5 minutes away. The upscale grocery store (Urban Fare) and liquor store are 10 minute walk. The alcohol in the BC liquor stores is very expensive! We rented bikes from Reckless across from Urban Fare, they were really nice, gave us their season pass to the aquarium to use for the day. The Aquarium was small but impressive. We were there for the fire works in August, packed a picnic and enjoy the show from the beach. The people in Vancouver are friendly. The city is clean. We brought our 20 year old daughter and friend and they had a blast. A must see is Butchart Gardens in Victoria, worth the ferry trip over. Biking around Stanley Park was beautiful. We would return to Vancouver & stay at John & Gillian's again without a doubt. Thank you!

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5
What more is there to say apart from the fact that this is an utterly fantastic property and that we were welcomed with open arms by lovely, nice people, Mr and Mrs S (owners). We enjoyed every minute there and look forward to going back. Location, views, and the flat itself are all impeccable. Thanks ever so much, Mr and Mrs S. --AW and JR, Washington DC.

LOVELY STAY IN YALETOWN

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters and myself stayed in this condo for 4 nights and found it to be perfectly suited to us. It is in a great spot in Yaletown: easy walk to the Marina to catch the Aquabus downtown or to Granville Island, great spot for walking by the waterfront, lots of restaurants within easy walking distance, as well as grocery stores, easy 2 blocks walk from the Skytrain from the Airport. The condo itself was roomy for the three of us with a private bedroom each (two murphy beds in dens plus master bedroom). It was spotless on our arrival, and had a very well-equipped kitchen allowing us to stock up at the Granville Market and cook quite a bit "at home" during our visit.

The view is beautiful, and the condo is very nicely furnished--feels like a home rather than a rental.

The owners met my sisters at the condo when they arrived and helped them get acclimated, including a good take-out recommendation for the first night. Upon leaving I realized I had forgotten my cell phone, and Gillian arranged to have it mailed to me one day later, which I especially appreciated. We would very happily rent this again and highly recommend this property.
