About Alan

My wife Rose, was born and raised in Vancouver. She is currently a special education teacher. I have lived in Vancouver for over 40 years and am retired. We live locally.

Alan purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Alan chose City Centre

We love the vibrancy of downtown! Our condo is in a great location to explore the city, without the need for a car. We bought into this high rise because we have always admired this building.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a view of English Bay, the mountains of Vancouver Island and the city. It is only moments to all the attractions of downtown Vancouver. This condo is conveniently located to Skytrain, which can take you to and from the Vancouver International airport.

Wonderful location and great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5
If you, like me, are often put off by hotels or apartments that have small but fundamental issues that affect the quality of your stay (weird smells or sounds, etc.), be confident that I found no issues with this apartment. Alan is extremely friendly and courteous, and also has a rare attention to detail, making everything about this apartment and stay wonderful. Additionally, I found the location to be ideal. A large grocery is just a block away, and many great (but not as well known or popular) restaurants are within 2 blocks. The apartment is very close to most of downtown, but I liked that it still felt a bit like it was off the beaten path. There is much more to Vancouver than just the downtown area, and this location on Burrard St. allows for extremely easy access via public transport to anywhere within the city. If you are worried about noise on the streets, don't be. My wife and I were very surprised to find that the streets of Vancouver are almost completely free of honking! We kept the bedroom window open for fresh air at night and were never woken up by street noise. Even walking around, I think I heard only 4 honks total in 5 days. Also, the Electra building has many wonderful amenities including free laundry (Alan keeps detergent in the apartment), a pool table on the first floor, ping pong in the basement, and a large work-out area. Stay here, enjoy some privacy, and get a real feeling that you are testing out living in Vancouver.

Fantastic View and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5
This 19th floor apartment has a fantastic view of the city and the water. Better yet, it's a quick walk to Davie Street, Robson and Granville so whatever you fancy is easy to get to. I had a sore foot during our stay but only needed a cab once everything else was an easy walk. Alan is a great host and provides just about everything you would need. The building is very secure and safe. I highly recommend it for a single person or a couple.

Lovely spot in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this tiny perfect condo in the sky. Beautiful building, friendly welcome from Alan, gorgeous view of English Bay from the floor-to-ceiling windows (when the rain let up!) Perfectly clean, bright, with a full kitchen and dining table for four -- we even served dinner to friends one night. Would definitely stay again!

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5
The first thing you see when you walk into the part meant is the view out over the city toward the ocean. The sunsets are amazing as the windows face full west. The apartment itself is efficient and cozy, the bed is comfortable and Alan has provided just about everything you need - from dishes to movies to umbrellas. Alan is also a knowledgeble and gracious host. Tha location is perfect for walkers and transit is nearby. We highly recommend this apartment.

That view!

  • 5 of 5
This property is highly recommended. The condo is centrally located to all things downtown, it's a beautiful and clean space, and offers the most enjoyable view. We also appreciated the proximity to public transport and the market, both which were incredibly convenient. The benefits of this space far outweigh a hotel - do stay!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing two weeks staying in this superb apartment and seeing all that Vancouver has to offer. The apartment is clean and modern with amazing views and easy access to shops and excellent restaurants. It's very easy to explore the city on foot and there are good transport links to go further afield. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. Alan and Rose were extremely helpful and from the first point of contact everything went smoothly. Thank You.
