About this listing
You are looking at a beautiful 16' ceiling 1 bedroom loft located in historic Gastown. Just steps from trendy restaurants and fashion boutiques, and hipster coffee shops. Also minutes away are the sea wall, Stanley Park, Chinatown and only one block from Crab Park and beach. The suite is over 700 sqft (65 sqm) with a full kitchen, bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the Vancouver Port and Mountains. This is a very modern loft that includes a combination of bamboo and polished concrete floors.
Liz and I do lots of traveling and when we do go away we like to rent our place out. I work as a teacher and she is a social worker so Liz usually takes the summers and winters off and we get away. We bought this loft two year ago and did many renovations to it. We love our place and we're sure you'll love it and the neighborhood (Gastown).
We would like all our guests to feel at home so please don't hesitate use anything you find in the kitchen, fire up the bbq, read a book in the hammock, workout in the gym, or take our bikes for a ride around the seawall.
Are place is very easy to get to as the skytrain (metro) is only 15min walk.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. We look forward to hosting you.
