A beautiful and comfortable place for a short or mid-term stay.
Thanks for providing the perfect accommodations for our family gathering at Christmas. Since we had family arriving from multiple locations on the west coast, Vancouver was a natural location to meet. The suite comfortably handled the seven adults who stayed there, each couple with a separate bedroom and one in the TV room/den. The two bathrooms were a must for that size of group.
The location is convenient to get around, with easy access to both buses and the Skytrain. Although we had access to a vehicle, we used the Skytrain extensively. In addition, there are many stores and restaurants within a sort walk including a major grocery store and pharmacy. Since we had a large crowd for dinner on Boxing Day, that was particularly handy.
The suite was very clean and well maintained with an efficient kitchen/dining area. Much of our visiting took place in that space and it worked well. The large refrigerator was a blessing in preparing the large Boxing Day meal.
I would definitely recommend the "Charleston" to anyone considering coming to Vancouver. When we get together again, it will be my first choice.
This was a great alternavie to a Hotel! We had each Bedroom full (including the TV room and it fit 8 adults. The apartment seems small at first, but the bedrooms are all nice and big. The dining area is small and it was a challenge to have a "Family style" dinner but we did all fit in there. There was a TV in every room, but the bedrooms only seem to get the first 30 channels or so. The aprtment was beautifully decorated and the upstairs Loft Mastersuite was rather roomy (but watch your head if you're tall). What I loved most about this vaation was being able to be with my whole family the whole time and not have to be split up into 4 different hotel rooms. When you think about it that way it also makes this a very affordable option. I had the time of my life and will remember this holiday fondly...Isn't that what it's all about?
PS(The owner was in the next apartment and was very accomodating - a lovely lady)
My husband and I spent an enjoyable week in this very clean apartment in the beautiful town of Vancouver. We also had two of our grown kids with us for two nights and all of us were very comfortable. The bathroom setup in the "Master" bedroom is very different with the shower being a curtain surrounding the drain in the floor. It worked, and I guess that's all that matters. The only thing I'd mention for any older visitors is that there are quite a few steps to climb-into the house, up to the main floor and up to the third floor where the "Master" bedroom is. Also, the coin opperated washer/dryer that was available is in a small storage room at the back of the house. We did find a nearby laundromat. We didn't do any cooking but all the facilities are there with very nice appliances. There was street parking for our car. We checked out the back of the property where you were supposed to be able to park off an alley but there wasn't room for the minivan. The owners were very informative and did reply quickly to all our emails. We would definitely stay here again, if it's available.
Stayed here with my parents, wife and two kids during the 2010 Olympics. The apartment was recently renovated so everything was nice, new, and spotlessly clean. The pictures and description of the property are accurate, and the owners were great about responding to emails promptly. The location was great for us - a short walk to the shops and restaurants of commercial drive and very close to public transportation. The owners were extremely helpful and super friendly. We would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay here again.
