West End Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
This charming, heritage, ground level 275 sq. ft. studio apartment is centrally located in the heart of the leafy West End, one of Vancouver’s most sought after neighbourhoods. The suite is ideally suited to the single traveller, or a couple. For women travelling alone, it is a safe, welcoming and secure environment.
It is quiet, elegantly appointed, cozy and full of character, reflecting a European style, with hardwood floors, a custom-built queen-sized wall bed, wool duvet and cotton bed linens, a well supplied kitchenette, and a classic bathroom with a large cast iron, claw-footed bathtub and hand held shower unit. Wifi is available in the suite, and use of a small gym in the building can be arranged.
The studio is in an award-winning, lovingly restored 1920's heritage building on a tree-lined street within easy walking distance to downtown Vancouver. It is also only a short walk to Stanley Park and its famous 10 km. seawall, several beautiful beaches, a host of fine restaurants and cafes, and to Robson Street, a premiere shopping street.
Also nearby are grocery shops, green-grocers, dry-cleaners, pharmacies, bakeries, coffee shops, hardware stores, many small boutiques, an international mix of bistros and restaurants, and convenient city bus routes.
The Fresco Suite offers the best of Vancouver urban life... a cozy home in a quiet neighbourhood by the sea, yet only a few minutes walk to the downtown core.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a darling space, bright, cozy and charmingly decorated with added luxury of a perfect bed. The suite is in an elegant heritage building which is well and lovingly maintained by it’s proud owners who also are very warm and welcoming.
The West End is a most wonderful location in Vancouver, from here, there is access to most everything. Also, there is usually a gentle breeze from the ocean providing deliciously fresh air.
A short or medium walk on beautiful tree-lined streets in one direction takes you to both Stanley Park, English Bay beach and innumerable small cafes and shops including internet cafes and a public library if you need access to a computer and the internet. In the other direction you will find theatres, sports events as well as excellent shopping in downtown Vancouver. The busy waterfront and harbour are close by.
If you prefer not to walk; daily, weekly and monthly transit passes are available and transportation is a short block away. The bus makes a loop from the West End to the downtown core, and then returns on a different route to the West End.
The Fresco is well equipped to make yourself breakfasts, lunches and, with a little planning, an emergency dinner.
I enjoyed immensely my stay in this lovely location and will return at every opportunity.
I live in the area and love this neighbourhood as it is close to the best of everything Vancouver has to offer - great beaches, mountain and sea views, Stanley Park and its famous seawall, as well as some of Vancouver's finest restaurants and shopping. All within easy reach. You don't need a car!
