About chris pallett

Nationally and provincially Registered interior

Designer, with a degree from the Ontario College of Art (in interior design). Extensively published, award winning design projects, and top sales producer with my longtime employer. Originally from Ottawa, moved to Vancouver 17 years ago. Extensive experience in buying, renovating, and selling homes. I work in high end furniture retail, as well as doing private design work...mostly helping clients build new homes, or renovate.

chris pallett purchased this condo in 2010

Why chris pallett chose City Centre

I chose this suite because of the great layout with no wasted space. Had a list of 'must haves', and this suite ticked most of those boxes. Came in with the idea of doing a total renovation, which took 7 months, top to bottom. Love the building amenities, and the proximity to everything I need.

What makes this condo unique

Turnkey, with plenty of left- in -place items to make it easy to feel right at home here. Quality linens, lots of kitchen tools for cooking, good CD/DVD library. Sunny days are perfectly spent on the balcony, or just take in the city with your morning tea or coffee. Toasty warm bathroom floor, and rainshowerhead. Books to read, and much information on what to do in Vancouver and area.

AMAZING SUITE AND WONDERFUL OWNER!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 2 1/2 wonderful months in Chris's suite. It was just as beautiful as the pictures in the ad and had everything that you could possibly want to make it feel like home. The location was the BEST, as we walked everywhere. Restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, liquor stores are all within a 2 - 10 minute walk. In addition, Stanley Park, museums, Pacific Centre, yoga studios and the train station are also an easy stroll. We had our car, but never used it during our entire stay!! Chris was a wonderful host, always just a phone call away if we had a question or small problem. He really made sure that the suite has everything you might need and his attention to detail really showed. Near the end of our stay, he asked if he could take us to dinner to thank us for being his guests. He also asked for our input so that he could improve things in the future that might be lacking. We could not really think of anything, since the suite is already a real gem - a 10!!!!! Thank you, Chris, for a wonderful summer in an amazing city!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Linda, and Brian as well. I strive to provide a wonderful space and experience for all my guests, and do everything I can to make each guest feel special (you and Brian were definitely that).
When I ask for feedback, I attempt to respond with action as quickly as I can do so. The same goes for issues that might arise within the suite, as I put my carpentry, painting, plumbing and electrical skills to work on an issue when it crops up.
Just a note to potential guests reading this note, Linda and Brian booked my suite almost 10 months before their intended visit to Vancouver, and I am finding that the only way to accommodate those who wish to rent my suite for a longer period, really do need to book at least 6-9 months in advance. The suite is now booked from August 29th to April 30, 2015 by guests who made the booking in September of 2013.
I thank you again for such a wonderful review, and will continue to live up to the expectations that all potential guest should have of my suite, and my service to them.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5
As you can see from the photos, the owner has decorated the condo very nicely. He has provided all the unseen necessities as well including everything needed to cook one's own meals. Gourmet grocery store is only half a block away, and the liquor store is one block. Chris was very attentive and friendly and insisted on picking us up from the train station. The condo is extremely well located and we walked everywhere. The only reason we did not give five stars is that there is construction across the street (a large office building) so it was a bit loud during the day. Since we were out and about during most of the day, and since they stopped work each day by 5 or 6, it was not that big of an issue. Nice view from the balcony. We felt like native Vancouverites for our one week stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words.
I cannot do anything about construction, as Vancouver is in the midst of amazing growth, which has now placed Vancouver in the enviable position of being named by New Yorker Magazine as being "One of the World's SUPERSTAR CITIES". I love being able to own a piece of it, and happy to be able to share my home's location and amenities with visitors to Vancouver. I also would like to thank you for leaving my suite in such nice condition, and the thought that would stay here again. Thanks, Chris Pallett

A little gem in Vancouver.

  • 5 of 5
I arrived in Vancouver the evening of Dec. 17th, Chris the owner of the condo picked me up at the station and took me to the condo. It was just a nice as the pictures that were on the site. Beautifully decorated and great views from every room. The condo itself had everything I needed. It was centrally located downtown, walk to every where, or just catch a cab, bus, train if you want to get out of town. I would rent the condo again, should I go back to Vancouver. Thank you Chris for sharing your little gem with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you Shirley for the kind words. I was pleased that my suite was available at such short notice for you, when your previous plans changed rapidly. It is always amazing finding guests from all over the world, and you were my first from Hawaii, and with my little touch of Hawaii in the fabrics and artwork in the bedroom, hope it made you feel right at home. I strive to make every visitor feel welcome, and comfortable when they stay in my suite....and again I have been rewarded with the compliment of a 5 star review.
Maholo, and do come back.

Home-Away-From-Home!!

  • 5 of 5
Chris welcomed us to his fabulous suite with wine and fruits! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, comfortable and secure condo. Sitting out on the patio in the evening with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee in the morning was so enjoyable, and the location was perfect with excellent restaurants and shopping. We highly recommend a stay in this "Home-Away-From-Home"...thanks for everything Chris!

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5
Chris was fantastic! He makes you feel right at home. As soon as you arrive he gives you a tour of all the extra touches as well as a fantastic bottle of wine and fresh fruit. The place is beautiful and comfortable. My favorite was the little balcony. So cozy to curl up and sip my wine and watch the sunset. The place is right in the middle of the shopping and dining district. It took 5 minutes to walk to convention center. Centrally located to all the sights. I highly recommend this condo!
