About Gayle Mann

I have lived in Vancouver for 21 years. Through the years I have lived in over 10 areas within the lower mainland from UBC to West/North Shore and love this area the best. The location is exceptional and the terrace adds a unique comfort as well expansive feel to the condo. The comfortable outdoor terrace is very unique and somewhat rare.

Gayle Mann purchased this condo in 2009

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

The condo is absolutely immaculate and had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay. It is located in Yaletown which is only a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown and is within 2-3 blocks of the LRT (Canada Line). Lots of great restaurants nearby along with easy access (5 minute walk) to pier where you can catch a marine bus over to Granville Island. The only comments I have is that check-in by the management company was delayed (about 40 minutes late arriving to let me in so I was stranded there wondering if they were coming). Other comment is the bed fits exactly between 2 walls so if you're taller than 5'11ish your body will be squished as there's no extra room at the end for your feet to hang off. Not an issue for us and bed was super comfy - but would definitely be an issue for taller people. Do not let these two comments dissuade you from staying here. We felt it was a really great place and would definitely book again. And the owner was wonderful to work with. Thank you Gayle!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here in late July before taking a cruise to Alaska. The condo was perfect. Everything we needed was there, including a washer/dryer. The place was very clean, the bed and couch comfortable. We planned to do a lot of sightseeing in the surrounding area, including a drive to Whistler, so we rented a car, and the parking spot in the building was a necessity. The deck was lovely in the evenings. The neighborhood was great, very walkable, with lots of good restaurants nearby. Gayle responded quickly to any questions, and her property manager met us at the building promptly at our arrival. I loved Vancouver and would definitely recommend this condo and neighborhood.

Great Condo, Great Owner in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Gayle's condo for 5 nights as our son was getting married in Vancouver and wanted a nice location that we could also entertain some of our out of town guests and family. The space in this condo is very well laid out with lots of storage area and with the added desk area at the entrance and terrace it was perfect. We were fortunate that the usual April showers in Vancouver held off on the evening we were entertaining so we could utilize the full terrace! Amenities in the kitchen were amazing and the decor tastefully appointed. The building complex is immaculate and extremely secure. Gayle, thank you for the rapid communication on everything from day one of inquiry to after we departed. We will definately stay here again (if there is availability!).

Awesome !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed in Gayle's condo (with our cat) for a week before we moved from Vancouver to Toronto. The condo had everything we needed, even salt & pepper in the kitchen! The condo was very homey & the furniture was very comfortable. The location is excellent - right downtown, close to transit & shopping. Thank you again Gayle!

Great stay for downtown Vancouver extended trip

  • 5 of 5

The property was new, very clean and well maintained. We stayed for a week with two kids but it was comfortable. Right inside the front door there was a little desk where our son was able to quietly do his homework everyday. The kitchen was modern, came with basic necessities and was used everyday during our stay. The gym was also nice too. The location is right in the middle of Yaletown which is close walking distance from everything in town for shopping, eating or hopping on a aqua bus to Gransville Island. We took the taxi twice during our stay. We even walked back from Stanley Park one afternoon after spending the day. The owner was very helpful and the property manager was able to answer any questions we had.

Nice City Condo

  • 4 of 5

The location is ideal as it is within walking distance to restaurants and shops. It is also an easy jaunt to sea wall and local parks and markets. The apartment is small but comfortable and the patio is a lovely addition. A provided parking place was definately an added benifit to this city apartment. We enjoyed our stay.
