Guestbook comments from the owner
Alex is a very helpful host. He was always available, when we had a question and his location/loft is exactly like the photos promised prior to our arrival. We would never hesitate to get back into the loft, when we would return to Vancouver.

I would like to review this property, because there are many details not revealed on the VRBO listing. Alex was very nice, and easy to reach. This review is not about him, but about the property itself. The flat is not air-conditioned. It was VERY hot when I arrived, and because of the situation of the flat- the sun beat in to the point that it was blistering hot inside- all day and night. It was unbearable. I also would like to reveal that the flat is not in Gastown, but a few blocks away in an unsafe area. The area is full of drug addicts and vagrants that I could see from the window constantly. I removed all of my jewelry and cleaned out my purse to only carry the minimum. Not a nice start to my vacation. I had to rely on calling taxis to meet me at the front door. It was better to not be in the flat during the day because of the unsafe heat- which I understand is not a usual problem. The first night I was there, I could not sleep because of the heat. I kept the window open in the living room and Alex did provided a fan to try to help with the heat. I was shocked at around 4:30 a.m. by a gun shot nearby. I am very familiar with how guns sound and this was within a very close proximity to the location of the flat. I texted Alex to let him know. I decided to try to make the best of it. I set up the fan w/ some frozen ice packs behind it that I found in the freezer and draped a towel over the fan around the ice blocks to create a home-made air conditioner. This helped as long as the fan was blowing right on me. I could not stay in the flat at all when the ice blocks thawed, so during the day, I would re-freeze them, and stay out and about- taking a taxi a few blocks over to get me out of the scary unsafe area of the flat. I contact Alex, and as of now, I have not been refunded. Be careful booking this location.

Owner's Response: I am deeply saddened to hear these comments. For anyone reading this the property is located in Gastown only steps from many restaurants, trendy shops and venues. There is no air conditioning as with most buildings in Vancouver (90%+). There are only a handful of days in Vancouver that warrant air conditioning and sadly the guest arrived on the hottest days of the year. Gastown is a mixed area of new and old and there is street activity mixed with high end and new/modern, it is part of the character and charm of Gastown preferred by many artists, musicians and alike it is the 'soho' of Vancouver. There were no gun shots, this rarely happens in Vancouver and if this happened it would have been headline news and police for days, guest was definitely mistaken. Everyone that has stayed has been very happy with this property. I think guest was expecting something different and in fact was under the impression that Canada was 'very cool / low temperature' and wanted to come to Canada to escape the Texas heat at this time of year, but summers here are nice! I never like to see anyone unhappy with the property and I do my very best to accommodate everyone as in this case I brought a fan and did everything I could. Regretfully there was nothing more I could do about the extreme weather and such. We have a no refund cancellation policy unless we are able to re-rent the property (sufficient notice) in which case we charge a 35% re-booking fee Guest decided to just leave and get a hotel and assumed a full refund. We lived in this home and my standards are VERY high and it definitely meets and exceeds my expectation and is luxurious. But again regretfully we cannot please everyone, everyone has different expectations. This is one of 3 properties I have in the immediate area and have had dozens of rentals all with 5 star ratings, the home is kept in top condition and I am confident you will be more than satisfied with the accommodation and my dedication to making your stay a pleasant one!
