A newly renovated 800sf loft apartment in the heart of Vancouver, blocks from Whole Foods, the Lululemon Lab, cafes, restaurants, community gym, Science World, seawall, VGH, and SkyTrain. Plenty of free on-street parking. This unit shares the lot with our main house, tucked away behind a privacy fence in the old garment district of Vancouver. Great views of downtown and the North Shore mountains. We are 6 blocks from the water and the wonderful seawall bike and jogging path. Vancouver has a rich cycling culture and there are well-marked bike paths throughout the city. We live along one of them.
Your apartment has a full kitchen with eating area, living room with flat panel TV, wireless internet, and a loft bedroom with queen bed and a memory foam mattress. The apartment is in pristine condition.
Guests will only have access to the courtyard in front of the guest house. The main house is not affiliated with the studio at this time.
Interaction with Guests
Our family is off on our own adventure! We are relocating to India for the next year. The guest house and the main house(the purple one) will no longer have any connection to each other. We have a family that will be staying there for the next year, but they will have nothing to do with the Airbnb business. We ask that you please respect their privacy. Our new manager, Conni Vogelfaenger, will be happy to help you with any questions or concerns you may have.
If this was NYC, we'd be Brooklyn. Lots of great architecture, coffee shops, bike lanes, blocks from the seawall, shopping, and SkyTrain. And yet it's quiet in the evenings, and our privacy fenced lot is our urban oasis.
There are two SkyTrain stations within 5 minutes walk. You can get anywhere you want in this city without a car.
1. If you need anything, let Conni know, she'll be happy to help. Please respect the privacy of our tenants in the main house.
2. No smoking inside or in the front yard. Backyard (on the stairs) is fine as long as all doors and windows of the studio are closed.
Please respect our tenants in the main house.
Don't bring cigarette butts inside, place them in a garbage bag and dispose them in the bins.
3. Please empty the fridge.
4. Empty the trash. There's a dumpster out back. If they are not visible, then they are behind the gray gate, in the alley.
5. Make sure all dishes are cleaned
6. Do your best to leave the studio in the same condition that you found it.
About the Host, Matt
I am an avid adventurer, ex-pat American who relocated to Vancouver to snowboard, kayak, hike, bike everywhere, and eat the delicious bounty available in these parts. I have been fortunate enough to share my journeys with my wife and two sons.
In 2011 we renovated the studio on our property to allow for guests. We found airbnb and, Voila! We get to meet interesting travellers from across the globe. Jenni and I have lived in the heart of Vancouver for eight years. We are taking 2015 to live in India for work and fun, but the apartment will still be available, managed by our good friend, Conni.
