LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...!
Luxury two bedroom condominium in an exclusive waterfront complex in downtown Vancouver, this unit's location is second to none! It doesn't get any better for urban living - steps to waterfront taxis, the marina & the sea wall.
Directly adjacent to the False Creek waterfront, the best of Vancouver is right outside your door. Half-a-block to Marinaside (home to Vancouver's best waterfront cafe's), and half-a-block to Yaletown (home to Vancouver's top restaurants and nightlife). And the False Creek Aqua Bus to Granville Island market is only steps away!
Great for extended-stay tourists, business people or actors - and new or existing Vancouver residents looking for an upscale place to call home for an extended period, in a spectacular location.
IDEALLY LOCATED, SO CONVENIENT
Our condo’s location is second to none. Whatever you are in Vancouver for, we are probably near it.
Imagine starting your morning with a coffee from one of Vancouver's finest Italian bakery and coffee shops across the street (and for those who prefer their Starbucks, it's right next door too!). Then take a morning stroll on the fabulous seawall, only steps from the front door. You can cycle the seawall directly to English Bay or Stanley Park - a hybrid bike is available for guests' use, and if another is needed (or rollerblading is your thing), rentals are right across the street.
Here for a conference, concert or sporting event? BC Place and GM Place (Olympic Opening/Closing Ceremony & Hockey venues, respectively) are both less than a 10 minute walk. And for those who love to shop, stylish Robson Street starts at GM Place.
Vancouver's trendiest upscale grocery (with restaurant, take away and coffee bar) is right downstairs. A fresh fruit & produce market, upscale wine outlet, video store and bank are steps from our building, along with restaurants, coffee shops and cafe's.

My wife and I reside in Calgary, Alberta with our 4 year old daughter. I am in Vancouver for business on a regular basis, and always look forward to staying in our condo.
Maria & Troy Sedgwick purchased this condo in 2008
My wife and I moved to Vancouver for a short term stay in the summer of 2006, and absolutely fell in love with the city during our time there. The combination of upscale urban lifestyle and absolutely spectacular scenery just couldn't be beat. It was easy to see why Vancouver was rated the #3 city to live in in the world (behind only Zurich and Geneva) for the past several years. We knew we would be back. However moving to Vancouver was not an option, since both our families (to whom we are very close) live in Calgary. What to do, what to do?! Well, in the summer of 2008, we finally broke down and bought a place there. At least this way we could visit often, and 'live' there part time! And Downtown Vancouver is where it's at. Trendy restaurants, quaint cafes, the seawall and gorgeous waterfront...and still only minutes away from the Coast mountains and ferries to the Gulf Islands. Yaletown itself is one of the nicest, cleanest and safest areas in all of downtown Vancouver, while at the same time the most lively, urban and upbeat. We hope you enjoy Vancouver (and all it has to offer) as much as we do!
Where else in the world can you:
- get up in the morning and go for coffee at a cafe on the water (Marinaside in Yaletown on False Creek)
- then take a waterfront jog along the seawall through one of the most beautiful urban parks in the world (Stanley Park)
- then hop in your car and drive 30 minutes for a short hike in the mountains where signs sometimes warn of cougar or bear sightings (I'm not kidding...though don't fret, this is rare)
- and be back for a scrumptious dinner at one of the trendiest restaurants in the country (Yaletown...the area where our condo is).
I actually did this one day! This is quintessential Vancouver, and it's why we love it here.
Quiet, Good Location and Ammenities
We would certainly rent this condo again. The condo is in a good location
to enjoy Yaletown, walking along False Creek, biking to Granville Market and
Stanley Park, taking the aquabus to Granville Market, and using the bus and
trains to the suburbs, airport and downtown. The suite is quiet and is as
described on this site. The complex has very nice amenities such as the
fully-equipped gym and a lap pool. There is an exercise room in the middle
of the lagoon which was excellent for a morning stretch routine looking out
onto a beautiful garden. Troy and Maria were very good hosts. We enjoyed
having Urban Fare attached to the complex as well as other stores and
This small condo is in a great location. It was clean and very livable for our 5 day Vancouver-Victoria stay.
The Urban Fare grocery store next door has all you need and False Creek is just steps away, as is transit. Note that while you're not downtown, there is still traffic noise outside your bedroom window.
Also note that while there are nice amenities (gym, indoor pool, hot tub, steam), they aren't in the same building and you'll have to go outside to access them.
Yaletown is a nice area with many restaurants and downtown is a 20 minute walk.
The owners were great and the key exchange went smoothly. Would recommend this condo!
We were two couples, from Ontario and England visiting Vancouver for the first time. The accommodations were very nice, really comfy beds, clean bathrooms, great views with the floor to ceiling windows in kitchen/dinning and living room area. Nicely decorated and had everything we needed, although we didn't stay in much or cook. Just outside the condo building were plenty of restaurants overlooking the marina, and many more just a block away in the centre of Yaletown, also pizza places, and an upscale Urban market, although expensive, had good fresh food and a great deli for take out meals. Transportation by sky train, or the water taxi to Granville Island and taxi's all just steps away. This was a perfect location for exploring the city of Vancouver. We didn't use the pool or gym but it looked good. Lovely water garden to walk through. I would highly recommend staying here, and hope to go back again soon.
We (two adults, 15 & 13 year olds) had a two week stay in this perfectly located condo. The location is ideal to explore all that Vancouver and its surroundings have to offer without the need for a car as the public transport is so good. Make sure you buy a book of Faresaver tickets at Urban Fare to save on your trips and also avoid the $5 airport charge. Can recommend the breakfast pizza at Sciue across the road and the lunch at The Flying Pig although there is no shortage of good places to eat and drink within a stone's throw of the front door. The condo was exactly as described, easy to get to and relaxing o stay in. The gym and pool were a well used bonus. We'll be back!
I have stayed this property in June and it was a wonderful stay for us. The location is perfect and it is very convenient. Very good super market is only 3 minutes from a room of condo. Yale town train station is also very close within a sand wedge shot distance! All necessary facility are well maintained and Sauna and Jim are also very good. It is the best location to enjoy a whole Vancouver city. I would like to stay here again in the near future.
We had a 9 night stay in the condo which was accurately described in the listing and we had no problems with booking arrangements.
The apartment was clean and tidy with plenty of space for the two of us, lots of towels and linen. We drove into Vancouver from Kelowna and had no problems locating the condo. Once in Vancouver we gave up the hire car as public transport is great. The Skytrain, buses, trams and water taxis are all conveniently located close to the condo. Urban Fair was handy but pricey, I would recommend Granville Island Market for really fresh produce and try Nesters, Choices or Safeway (if you have a car) for your basics. If shopping and cooking seeems like too much effort - there are lots of restaurants close by in Yaletown.
We loved whale watching, Stanley Park trails & sea wall, English Bay at sunset, Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge and trails and for a wee hidden gem grab a picnic and take a seaplane to Nanaimo then catch the water taxi to Newcastle Island it is beautiful.
Located 2 minutes from the subway and three minutes from the water taxi stop, the location was great. With no HVAC it may be a bit warm in August. Some street noise when the windows are open. Kitchen was well equipted and having Urban Fare, a high end grocer on the first level, was convenient beyond words. Walk to many of the city's best restaurants and clubs. Rooms were snug but adequate for two couples. Having glass walls on four sides makes it feel spacious. We will return next year
