The Space

Treat yourself to top of the world living. Beautiful sub-penthouse downtown on the 36th floor of a new building with amazing views from every window. We have 2BD/2BA in a spacious 1400 sq ft of living space, styled with an eclectic designer mix of antique vs. modern. With floor to ceiling windows there is plenty of natural light and we have a partially covered deck with table & chairs if you want to sit outside to enjoy views of the city or the unobstructed SW views of False Creek.

There is always tea & coffee on hand and the well equipped kitchen is available for your use. Meals can be arranged if needed.

Your room is spacious and comfortable with a queen sized bed (Sealy mattress & memory foam topper) and as we don't have air conditioning in the apartment there is a great fan in your room in case you get warm. We've made plenty of room in the closet for you to unpack and have added a flat screen TV with an Apple TV where you'll have free access to Netflix or the ability to rent movies via your iTunes account. You will also have a private bathroom just down the hall (not an ensuite, but almost as sweet).

Guest Access

BUILDING AMENITIES: Secured entry, visitor's parking and access to our amazing facilities - a large cardio room, weight room, swimming pool, hot tub & large dry sauna.

The Neighborhood

NEIGHBOURHOOD: The building is literally beside Rogers Arena & BC Place in the downtown area. You are a 5 minute walk from Gastown, Chinatown & the Dr Sun Yat Sen Gardens and about a 15 minute walk to Granville St, Robson St, Science World, the Vancouver Convention Centre or trendy Yaletown. The sea wall at False Creek is only a stone's throw away and our neighbourhood downstairs has plenty of good restaurants, unique grocery stores, a movie theatre, a large park and even a mall. We're 1 block from a basketball court, 2 blocks from soccer fields & tennis courts. I could easily go on...

I have added a Guidebook (see link at the top right of the listing) so you have some of my favourite neighbourhood picks for restaurants, pubs, etc.

Getting around

TRANSIT: The building is only a few steps from the Stadium SkyTrain station and a couple of blocks from the major bus lines that run along Expo, Pender & Hastings streets.

Other Things to Note

YOU MUST LOVE DOGS! We have 1 small furry family member - an American cocker spaniel. She is well behaved, friendly, elderly and home all day. There is also a budgie if you're more partial to birds.

We have a clean, comfortable, easy living & non-smoking home. I currently work from home and am generally around - or am at least accessible - if you need me. We look forward to meeting you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Such a great time at Klay's wonderful apartment. The bedroom is very nice, the bed so comfy, so precious when you spend the whole day walking in the beautiful city of Vancouver… The private bathroom is very good, all the apartment is very clean.
    Klay's apartment is amazing, wonderful view from the living room and the balcony.
    But the best is Klay's kindness, it was a real pleasure to meet him ! I wish I spoke a better english to discuss more with him. And his coffee is great ;)
    We had a wonderful time there, and no doubt we will contact Klay if we go back to Vancouver again.

  • Klay is such a sweetheart with a fabulous flat, stunning view of the city and a great taste in art. We had a wonderful time staying with him and great conversation. Klay took time to measure his hallway and doorways to make sure my wheelchair can fit and took extra care of removing any kind of possible obsicles. Like I said, what a great guy. I would def stay with him again and recommend his flat to anyone that visits Vancouver.

  • Klay was a fantastic host! He was friendly and always helpful with tips to go around the city (and some you don't find on the internet. He taught us to try for the $25 ballot for Wicked tickets when they were in town and we got to watch a fantastic show at half the price!) Even though he was around the apartment most of the time, you still get plenty of privacy.

    The room was immaculately cleaned, coupled with a stunning view. Many places to explore were within walking distance (Gastown, Chinatown), and with buses that get you to the further places it really isn't a bother at all. Oh, and the gym/pool facilities were really a plus (and the reason why we always set off late).

    We didn't get to spend too much time in Vancouver, so we will definitely be back, and hopefully his place will be available then!

    June 2014
  • Klay is a fantastic host and his apartment is immaculate. The views throughout his entire home are spectacular, particularly looking down on False Creek and beyond. The location is perfect, just blocks away from Gastown, with super-easy access to public transit right outside the front door.

    My stay could not have been better and I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Vancouver - in fact, I hope to stay here again.

  • Klay is a great host!!

    I stayed at Klay's home for two weeks. I felt like home. The condo looks much better than photos in airbnb!!! . The very beautiful gas town is very close, also down town and Yale town. Right in front of the residens there is a bus station and you need only one minute to the sky train by walking. The condo ist very good located. If you like to go out, you can come home very easy by walking. Also there are many good super markets pubs close to condo.

    The view from my room's window was very amazing. I enjoyed it very much. The condo is very clean and Klay's dog is well behaved (and very cute).
    Klay has always very good ideas if you need some help for eating outside or for different activities.

    Staying there will make you love Vancouver!

  • I enjoyed my stay in Klay's apartment. Everything went smoothly and fully met expectations (bedroom, facilities, neighbourhood).

    June 2014
  • My friend and I had a three day girls getaway in Vancouver and were very lucky to have stayed at Klay's spectacular home. From the get go we felt comfortable. Klay is a friendlly good natured host. My friend usually has trouble sleeping but slept like a baby (memory foam!). Great location (we didn't have a car); beautiful views and accommodations. Highly recommend it. I would stay here again. Thank you Klay.

    Response from Klay:

    Thank you both for coming to stay with us! I just went through and realized that for some reason I never left a review of you as a guest!? My sincerest apologies. It is too late for me to leave a review BUT I would love to leave a "reference" so that you have it on file for future hosts to read. The system only allows for you to ask me for a reference now...Here are the instructions:
    I hope you're both doing well - and that we get to see you again sometime.

  • We stayed with Klay in May, 2014. Klay is a great person who truly cares about his guests and ensures they are taken care of in every way. He lives in a great neighborhood. We were considering getting a rental car but we were so glad we didn't because everything was within walking distance from Klay's place. He was very accomodating and receptive to our questions as this was out first time in Vancouver, BC. He gave us pointers on places to eat and must do/see places/things. He was great even with the small details e.g. leaving umbrellas out when it drizzled. He made us a scrumptious lunch on our last day. Klay is very personable and easy to talk to. The room was great. It was just as described and very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. He even let us use his W/D for a quick load. Klay made our stay comfortable and we truly felt at home. We'd definitely stay with him again if we were back in town. We highly recommend Klay to everyone!!!

  • Klay's place is great. The view was great, bed was comfy, everything was neat and tidy. The apartment gym is probably the best gym I encountered in my travels.
    Klay is one of the nicest and most responsive airbnb hosts I stayed with.

    January 2014
  • My stay at Klay's was awesome. His apartment is very conveniently located to Gastown (a mere block away), Chinatown and Rogers Arena with public transit right outside the door. The apartment itself is within a secure building with gorgeous views of the waterfront and city skyline. All in all, I had a terrific time at Klay's and would highly recommend a stay with him, as he is a very genial and welcoming host!

Canadian guy with a thirst for knowledge and experience. My travels have taken me to 5 continents so far and I hope to one day have visited all 7. There are so many great people to meet and cultures to enjoy - not to mention the delicious food to eat! I am currently opening a new chapter in my life, revisiting my career in marketing & branding - with hope that it will equate to new challenges, fun experiences - and definitely more travel. Coming soon to a city near you. xo ~Klay
