I would highly recommend Gails Yaletown condo. The location is perfect with bustling Yaletown on your doorstep, Gastown at the north end of the street and Granville Island to the South. The condo is exactly as it appears in the photographs. Great to have two bathrooms and the kitchen is probably the best equipped kitchen I have experienced after many trips using airbnb. Due to the late timing of our flight we did not get to meet Gail but she was very responsive on email when we had a problem with the delivery of lost luggage. I would certainly stay here again should I have the good fortune to return to Vancouver.
My parents were visiting me and I heard about Airbnb so I looked into places that are closed to the beach and safe area. I noticed this place at Yaletown. It was close to everywhere (downtown) and safe. After I booked the place it was very easy. Gail contacted me very quick and the whole whole process was very simple. When I checked in, the place was very clean and nice. The building was placed at Yaletown popular area. It was close to grocery store, hip restaurants and more. They stayed there two nights. For me, they didn't speak English very well but they felt safe walking around the neighbourhood. The place was exactly like what pictures were shown, actually better than I expected. Checking out the place was very easy too. My parents told me that they would like to use the place again when they come back. I think I will recommend this place again if anyone visits me and recommend the place to my friends if they ask me if I know any places. It was actually better than hotels or inn.
We arrived at the apartment in Downtown Vancourver , and were greeted by Gail and her husband, Brian. We were shown through the apartment and had features explained to us. We were then shown prepared notes on how to find our way around Downtown area, transport, shops, etc.
What we found most useful was the fact that previous tenants left food not used by them in the fridge and cupboards to be used by others. Consequently we gratefully made use of this and did likewise when we left. Tenants also had no need to purchase kitchen/bathroom or laundry products as the apartment was heavily stocked in these items by Gail and Brian.
The unit is very, very central by foot to supermarkets, main Robson Street and all transport.
The only critical comment I can make is lack of air-conditioning and insufficient window coverings throughout.
We had a wonderful time and thank Gail and Brian for renting their very nice apartment to us.
Gail and her husband met us at the apartment to show us around. They provided maps and other information for our stay. The condo is in a great location with easy walking access to a number of restaurants and other attractions. Coming from the East Coast, we take AC for granted and didn't realize it's almost non-existent in Vancouver, but thankfully there was a large fan in the living room and small ones in the bedrooms.
We could not have found a better gem in Yaletown for our accommodation during the Lululemon Seawheeze. My sister and I and our spouses stayed at Gail's place and we loved the location (also, for two couples, the two bathrooms was excellent). The condo also worked perfectly for us to cook our own meals when needed (the kitchen had everything), yet it was close to many trendy streets for any type of food we were looking for. Gail was also very organized and accommodating for our check-in time. Although the place still required to be cleaned, her husband met us and allowed us to store our bags for the day and gave us the keys. A couple things to note - because we were situated in Yaletown, we did notice quite a bit of street traffic during the night but the window breeze allowed the condo to stay cool. Also, the second bedroom was a bit smaller than expected, however having the two bathrooms made up for that. Overall, we had an excellent stay and will not hesitate to contact Gail again when we travel to Vancouver. Cheers.
The unit was just as described, and we could not have found a better location. A minor hiccup with the keys was quickly resolved upon arrival, and we settled in for a perfect family stay in Vancouver. First class accommodation, first class hosts, and location, location, location! Thank you Gail for making our first AirBnB experience so positive and easy.
