Beautiful Loft in Historic Gastown

Loft - Entire home/apt · Alexander St, Vancouver, BC V6A 4H6, Canada

The Space

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.

  • great location. it is very close to everything central to downtown Vancouver. The loft is well designed with a comfortable feel to it. We were able to buy from nearby stores and restaurants. The loft was clean when we got there. Vlada was available to us when we needed anything.

  • The loft was great and very stylish. Vlada was friendly and worked around our late arrival due to traffic in an easy manner. The only negative to our stay is that we were not fond of the neighborhood. It is a few blocks from the skidrow area of Vancouver. If you are going to be moving around the area in a car then no worries, but if you are going to be out walking and returning late at night the area could be better.

  • My Partner and I stayed here in early-mid August 2013 and WOW! We stepped through the door of the place and it looks incredible! Just as in the photos! We didn't get to meet Vlada or Liz but they where so helpful through email when we had questions and had a awesome 'Loft Cheat Sheet' they had left for us with heaps of useful tips! The loft was great, unique and a experience! The bed was comfy and it was nice to have the trendy little loft to ourself! Made us feel a bit special! The only thing was it was a bit warm, the only ventilation being from the balcony doors...but we had a fan in the bedroom so that made it a bit better. The location was fantastic! We loved Gastown and it's little Cobblestone street, it felt like somewhere out of the set of the movies or Gilmore Girls or something! It was easy to get around, we walked pretty much everywhere but Waterfront station for Airtrain and Pacific Central for Amtrak was walking distance! It was a great spot to be in! A nice market around the corner, a awesome diner and some lovely restaurants, this location and this unique apartment made our stay in Canada fun! Thank you for having us!

  • We had a great stay at Vlada's apartment. There is everything you need to feel like home. The apartment was very clean, quiet, really well decorated and perfectly located, next to all the good shops, bars etc..
    Vlada was very nice when we met him. He gave us good tips so we could enjoy our stay and that's what we did! We would definitely recommend it.

  • Vlada's flat is an excellent experience - from the modern yet personal design to the kitchen (which has everything). The bed is very comfortable and the flat itself was enjoyable to relax in after a day's sightseeing.

    We loved the bikes they left for us to discover Vancouver. Vlada was very friendly and easy to communicate with, we would definitely return.

    Thank you very much Vlada.

  • We really enjoyed our trip to Vancouver and this nice, clean and good located apartment. When we met Vlada he was a very friendly and courteous host. If I came back to Vancouver, i would always book this flat again.

  • We enjoyed our stay very much at this loft. We loved using the bikes and rode all over town. The location was just perfect, close enough to the action but just enough distance away so it was quiet. Sitting outside on the deck enjoying a bottle of local wine was a special treat. Thank you!

  • This is a very nice flat in a nice downtown area. Leaving bikes for us made the city trip even nicer. Vancouver is definitely a must see! Thank you for making this possible. For cooker: kitchen is also well equipped. Everything perfectly prepared for the guests incl Internet. We would love to come again.
