About Scotty Henderson

I too love to travel having been to all five continents as being an entrepreneur in the import business has taken me to diverse locations. Having been a manager at Westin Hotels for 12 years, I appreciate the importance of a clean and safe place to call home on your travels as well as the finer amenities.

Scotty Henderson purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Scotty Henderson chose City Centre

The neighbourhood is upscale and quite for being downtown with a city block park across from the house. The sunsets over English Bay and the waters between the bridges rival any I've seen. Loving the outdoors this location gives you the best walks, hikes and bikes as all the best of what the city has to offer.

What makes this townhome unique

The patios are great in the summer months. Roof top dining and lounging, the amenities from squash courts to fitness room and the easy access walks to the waterfront and downtown core. Shopping can be found within moments from the garden shop next door to downtown's upscale shopping a short walk away.

The condo location was hard to beat with a short walk to the Aquabus and a short ride to Grandville Island. The condo was spacious and perfect for our group of 6. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5
First time in Vancouver and the family already wants to come back to the same Townhouse. We spent a beautiful week there and everything went fine. The house is very nice, the decoration is eclectic and classy, but fun too. Our 3 kids (2 teenagers and one 10 year old), when returning from biking or touring the city, enjoyed the magnificent living room/tv room. Scotty was helpful and always within reach for assistance.
Location is really good. The neighborhood is very nice. Close to city transportation, and walking distance to Yaletown, Granville Island, the beach, bike rentals...Really really nice. Thank you Scotty!

Loved the location of this townhouse. We walked everywhere. Took the Aquabus to Granville Island, then walked back over the Granville St. Bridge. Our own entrance on ground level was wonderful. A little cluttery inside. Enjoyed the roof top patio in the sunshine. We had trouble with keys and finding our way back from underground parking. Overall an excellent choice for our group of 6.

Not quite what was expected.

  • 2 of 5
We booked the townhouse for four nights in May of 2014 and we did so primarily for three reasons; location, size and outdoor facilities. The location was, as most other reviews have stated, exceptional. It is central to downtown, close to Granville Island and within walking distance of the skytrain. Travelling as a group of five, the overall size of the unit worked reasonably well for our party. Although two of the bedrooms were a little cramped with double occupancy. We were tremendously disappointed to learn three or four days prior to our arrival that the outdoor facilities (patios and outdoor grill) were inaccessible because of exterior renovations. Had we known this earlier, there is a very good chance that we would have looked for other accommodation. As property owners ourselves, we feel that it is the owners responsibility to be honest, fair and forthright in terms of the condition of the rental property. Three or four days notice was none of the above.

We were also somewhat perplexed with the overall condition of the unit. Neither the fridge nor the oven had been cleaned - indeed, we ended up having to dispose of items that had been left in the fridge, including a container of milk. A good vacuum and a thorough scrubbing was much needed.

A final note and a general maintenance comment, the upstairs washroom sink was partially plugged and very slow to drain.

Owner's Response: I am glad to know that the location with everything that has Vancouver has to offer was liked and that for downtown 1800 sq feet is considered large. I wish that you had contacted me with any deficiencies, as I had called you 3 times during your visit to make sure that you were comfortable. The improvements are concluding next Friday, the website did note decks would be closed as did my letter to you. Apologize for any misunderstanding here.

POSITIVES:
I have stayed at this townhouse numerous times over the past two years and I have never been disappointed with my stay. Scotty has always been a great host, very accommodating with check-in and check-out times. The townhome is so unique with something interesting in every corner. It's clean and creatively decorated. It's also equipped with everything you need to cook at home.

The location is FANTASTIC! A short walk to shopping, and adventure. VERY close to the seawall, Granville Island, Theatres, etc. You can't go wrong with this townhome, plus it is one of the very few three bedroom townhomes in the area!

NEGATIVES:
Well, my negatives are not really negatives, more circumstantial. The building is being completely renovated. So during my last two stays there was no access to the rooftop, or the patio. I'm sure once the building is finished it's going to be fantastic!!

I would definitely recommend this property. It is exactly as described in the description, the photos don't do it justice. The property is clean and fairly well-maintained. The owner is awesome!

Owner's Response: Thank you Patricia and always love to host you and your friends. The west coast themed townhouse with many pieces hand carved by local artisans makes it an original. The improvements are wrapping up now on the units exterior so rooftop is expected open shortly. Looking forward to your next visit.

disappointing

  • 2 of 5
We had a disappointing stay at this townhouse. There was NO power our entire stay in one of the bedrooms - no lights no plugs. The outside is a MESS with construction and the parking is tiny. The location is good, but the bedrooms have no floorspace as they are small with a LOT of furniture, not much room for a suitcase! Scotty was responsive by email but our problems didn't get fixed during our stay.

Owner's Response: I appreciate feedback and always handle those issues that may arise with my guests. Yes, the area is the best in the city. Problems do arise with all properties like a blown fuse which I'm glad you were able to switch the next morning as I had dispatched maintenance for 7am following your midnight email to me. Reflected accurately in the pictures, the townhouse has over 1500' interior which is considered very large for downtown Vancouver, free parking is often hard to come by. All other facilities with pool, squash courts etc. remain open while the building under goes exterior upgrades completing end of winter for the summer patio season.
