About Keith

Specializing in short-term monthly, quarterly and yearly rentals, I was born, raised, university educated, married and live all in Vancouver (the most beautiful city on earth!).

Why Keith chose Gastown-Chinatown

It's a modern, clean and beautifully furnished top floor condo with a private deck!

What makes this condo unique

You don't need to rent a car while staying here. The condos proximity to beaches, great coffee shops, the seawall, Stanley Park, Canada Line and being steps away from Vancouver's finest restaurants make this property truly unique. The private deck makes for a beautiful end to a long day of touring the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the condo in Gastown for a month. Fabulous layout and the private deck was an added bonus. The fireplace was also a nice touch! The kitchen was perfectly stocked for cooking and when we didn't cook we had our choice of atleast a dozen great restaurants within blocks of the condo.

The condo was also extremely clean...we will be back!

Thanks again Keith.

Great Condo+Great Private Deck+Gastown= 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment in April and the next time we are in Vancouver we will definitely be back at the Gastown rental. It was clean and delightful.

The space was perfect for the 2 of us and the private deck was also an added bonus. Gastown was better than even advertised with dozens of great restaurant choices, coffee shops and wonderful clothing shops popping up everywhere. Nesters was only a couple minute walk from the apartment where we did all of our grocery shopping.

Next time we won't be renting a car!

Thanks Keith

Great place to stay, access to downtown sites and public transportation

  • 5 of 5

Keith was great! The property was clean, modern, and cozy. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace, the balcony, and roof top patio. Wonderful views of Water Street and the Burrard Inlet looking across to North Vancouver. Great place to set up base camp and enjoy Vancouver by foot, bus and/or train. Lots of shops, coffee shops, restaraunts near by. Highly recommend this spot!

Great Location for exploring Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Owner Keith met us at the condo even though we arrived around 11 PM. He was super friendly and helpful with information about the area. The condo had everything we needed and was in a perfect location for exploring Vancouver. A car is not necessary as public transportation is a pleasant 5 minute walk from condo. Can't say enough about owner Keith and his property!!!

Beautiful sanctuary in the middle of it all!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful month long stay in Keith's condo in Gastown. The condo was well appointed and the location was great especially for food lovers, coffee lovers and clothing shopping.

The Canada Line is a 5 minute walk from the condo and local transportation is easily accessed. I loved my stay!

Great five days in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in downtown Vancouver and if you want to be close to restaurants, galleries and coffee shops, and if you want to be be steps from public transportation, this is a great place to be. The condo is very well equipped, it is very comfortable, very clean and in a very interesting neighborhood close to downtown Vancouver. The owner, Keith, is very helpful and takes excellent care of the property. We enjoyed our time in Vancouver and in the condo.
