Well-furnished and very well-equipped comfortable condo.
Great balcony and great location.
Would definitely rent again.
Maha is great. So polite and pleasant and responsive to any questions/concerns.
Thanks for your review. It makes me happy to know you enjoyed your stay.
GREAT LOCATION - WALK TO EVERY ATTRACTION
We didn't rent a car and easily walked to Stanley Park, Grenville Island, China Town, Gas Town! Great spot. Clean and served the purpose for our Vancouver getaway! We will definitely stay here again.
Awesome. I am happy to hear you had a good time and enjoyed your stay.
Great apartment in a good location
Really enjoyed staying here...warm, good kitchen, location is good, albeit a bit noisy from the local hospital ambulances.. but so close to so many excellent eating places. Love Davie St and bus stop out the front. Recommend.
Thanks for your review Jack. Glad to hear you liked the place :)
Perfect Stay in Vancouver
This was my first trip to Vancouver! it was the perfect downtown location with easy access to all of the sites and places that we wanted to visit. There is a lot to do in the neighborhood (plenty of stores. restaurants, etc.). The owner, Maha, was extremely responsive and helpful during our arrival and stay. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I'd definitely stay here again. ~ Dameon from Brooklyn
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your first visit to Vancouver, and that the acommodations were good for you. You were a great guests as well.
Thanks Dameon. You are welcome to come back any time :)
Great Location between Yaletown and English Bay and only a block away from St. Pauls Hospital
The condo was well equipped and comfortable and just down the street from St Paul's hospital though the living room was so uncomfortable it would be unbearable for people with some medical issues. I would stay again if the sofa bed was replaced.
Maya is a good host. We didn't have problems with access or condo management.
Hi Barb, thanks for your comments. Sorry the couch was not completely comfortable for you. I just got two big cushions and placed them on the couch to help guest to sit more comfortably. Hope this helps.
Thanks for your stay and good luck :)
No major complaints but many small issues
On the surface this place is pretty good - nice location, secured underground parking, full kitchen and good amenities but there are numerous small issues that detract from the charm.
What could be improved:
The place needs a good cleaning - dust build up on various surfaces caused allergy issues. The floors weren’t clean either. The grout around the bathroom sink is black with mold, as are parts of the bathtub (especially corners). The exhaust fan in the bathroom is completely blocked with dust. The shelf in the bathroom also needs new plaster/drywall. The bed squeaks loudly whenever you move, the trim around the bedroom windows is also black with mold. The closet doors don’t open fully due to an alignment issue, and the kitchen drawers can’t be opened unless the refrigerator is also open (due to clearance issues). The entry light doesn’t work, there are no bins for recycling and we couldn’t find extra trash bags. The sofa was terribly uncomfortable and the noise from the street kept us up most nights (until we found that the windows weren’t latched shut). The mini blinds have a few issues and don’t keep out much, if any, of the city lights. The pillows and other bedding are also well-used and could be replaced. Then there’s the issue of short-term rental, which is an issue throughout Vancouver so being discrete felt a little awkward. Also, turning the keys back in at the end of the stay is impossible if you are parked in the garage, and requires two people to coordinate locking of the apartment and unlocking of the elevator.
The view wasn’t exactly amazing. The apartment looks out over a gas station and into a couple other apartments. No water or mountains in the view.
Overall it was a cute place and we did mostly enjoy the trip. This place could use some maintenance, however, and was a bit pricey when considering the furnishings and other little niggles.
Jenn, thanks for your comments. The cleaning is done by a professional company and I addressed your comments with the cleaning team to be extremely thorough in those details, but I can assure there is no mold in the bathrooms.
The apartment is on a main avenue, so yes there is some street noise, as it would be expected in the downtown core of a city. On the other hand everything is very close and you can walk pretty much everywhere. Downtown is a busy area so you will find some avenues noisy.
I ask my guests to be polite with neighbors and personnel at all times, and to be discrete as to not talk about short term rentals in elevators or public spaces, not as to "hide" or anything.
Short term rentals are a sensitive topic in so many cities in the world, so guests need to come with an open mind and understand this is not a hotel and works a bit different.
The check out process is designated to facilitate people doing self-check out. If you are driving all you have to do is taking your car out of the parking, and come up to a 6th floor to drop the key, which takes 5 minutes. I haven't heard complaints from other guests about the process.
