Extensively published, award winning design projects, and top sales producer with my longtime employer. Originally from Ottawa, moved to Vancouver 17 years ago. Extensive experience in buying, renovating, and selling homes. When I retired from retail a year ago, I became busier than ever, mostly helping clients build new homes, or renovate. I travel back and forth from my home in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast to Vancouver, with most of my design work in the Vancouver area. I am on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity, and serve as the ReStore Director.
chris pallett purchased this condo in 2010
I chose this suite because of the great layout with no wasted space. Had a list of 'must haves', and this suite ticked most of those boxes. Came in with the idea of doing a total renovation, which took 7 months, top to bottom. Love the building amenities, and the proximity to everything I need.
Turnkey, with plenty of left- in -place items to make it easy to feel right at home here. Quality linens, lots of kitchen tools for cooking, good CD/DVD library. Sunny days are perfectly spent on the balcony, or just take in the city with your morning tea or coffee. Toasty warm bathroom floor, and rainshowerhead. Books to read, and much information on what to do in Vancouver and area.
I travel a lot internationally, often renting owner flats rather than hotels. The best part of this is "feeling" like a native, which is enhanced by a property owner that welcomes you to a new city. Chis was absolutely wonderful as a host. The unit is in perfect condition and in an ideal location in Vancouver. There was nothing left to want. If you are ever planning a visit to gorgeous Vancouver, you have to rent this unit. Thanks, Chris! Hope to see you/the unit again in March.
Delightful host. Magnificent views. 21st century accommodations. Couldn't ask for more.
You've read all the reviews about how special this property is, how beautifully designed, how well thought out, how well-stocked and well-equipped, how perfectly located it is and how terrific a city Vancouver really is. All of that is true, and then some...
...so I want to talk about our host, Chris. Our stay wasn't a perfect one, and THAT is why this is a 5 star review! We arrived for 8 days and nights of gorgeous weather. Well, unseasonably hot weather, to be exact. So hot that the suite was very, very warm the first night. Chris immediately went out and purchased a second A/C unit for the bedroom so we could sleep in comfort, and we did after that. This hot sun was not Chris's fault, and Canada is not the south where Central A/C is common, yet he did everything he could for us in an uncomfortable situation, and we cannot say enough about this, especially as my wife is not in good health and is easily affected by such things. Do NOT let my mention of the suite being warm dissuade you from staying here. It was a bit loud because of two A/Cs and a fan running constantly, but this heatwave was an anomaly for Vancouver, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, we would stay nowhere else in this glorious city, and that is because of our always helpful, completely understanding host! THANK YOU CHRIS. You, sir, are a class act.
Fabulous, clean, modern, comfortable apartment with all you need. easy to walk to most places and close to Sky Train. Restaurants, Bars, Shops close by. Lovely hospitality from Chris. We used the communal outdoor lounging area which is an asset in the warm weather and spent relaxing evenings on the private balcony. I would definitely rent this apartment again!
My wife and I spent a week in Vancouver during the FIFA World Cup and were walking distance to BC Place. We were amazed at the vast choices of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing close by. Jump on the train from the airport and in less than 30 minutes you are a 3 block walk to this lovely property. Rented bikes close by and rode them thru Stanley Park, along the seawall to Olympic Village, Granville Island, and out to UBC. Chris' place has windows that open and the lovely breeze was delightful. Enough can't be said about how Chris has decorated the interior. So many things to mention in that regard I could go on and on. And the best part of it all is Chris. One of the nicest people you will ever meet. Going to Vancouver again and only staying here.
Had a great 2 weeks, wonderful location, just right for a couple, close to all attractions, great night life, close to all wonderful foods, restaurants etc. air conditioning would have made it a 6 star. Other then that perfect.... tks so much.
Voted one of the most liveable cities in the world. This is a very centrally located suite, with Alberni Street called a mini Rodeo Drive at your doorstep. DeBeers Diamonds, Tori Burch and Prada all located in the building. Seven great restaurants within the block, and 35 in the blocks around. Right across the street from Urban Fare grocery store.
