Please browse through the reviews on my other listings. I'll do everything to make your stay pleasant, comfortable, and stress-free.
Note: This is not a shared space. You'll have the place entirely to yourself.
**This apartment is not child-proof and not particularly good for small kids. Please consult me before making a reservation if you want to bring your children**
The building is at the corner of Nelson and Burrard streets, right at the centre of downtown. You'll be able to walk everywhere: Convention Centre, Vancouver Art Gallery, Yaletown, Gastown, English Bay, Stanley Park and much more. Only 25 minutes by subway or cab from the airport. Restaurants and shops are steps away.
Other Things to Note
LGBT and straight friendly.
Please note that I only hand keys to the person who booked the reservation and you must show valid picture ID.
Guests must follow the strata bylaws and regulations. You will be asked to sign a Form K (a demand from the building's management), stating you will comply with these bylaws:
No smoking anywhere in the apartment or building, or up to 6 meters from the building's front door.
No drinking alcohol in the common areas of the building.
Respect the laundry room hours (8am to 11pm).
No noise in the lobby, elevators, or hallways.
No pets, not even visiting pets. The building enforces a $200 fine for that.
And these are my own little rules:
No unregistered guests.
No more than 6 people in the apartment at any given moment.
Please remove your shoes when entering the unit (as Canadians do).
Please, avoid removing make-up on the towels. There are Kleenex, cotton pads and cotton swabs provided for that purpose.
Although I don't charge a safety deposit, I trust you to reimburse me in case of any incident (stains, broken glasses, lost keys, etc).
A great flat in a fantastic location we loved it. Lili was very professional and helpful recommending restaurants and shuttles to Whistler. We would highly recommend staying here.
As usual, our stay in Lili's apartment was terrific. As usual, it was clean, well equipped, ready when we arrived and Lili was as accommodating as ever.
I highly recommend Lili as a host and her accommodations for their location, cleanliness and comfort! I have stayed in places all over Europe and Asia through Airbnb and Lili can't be beat!
We look forward to our next visit!
This was our 2nd stay in one of Lili's apartments. After some days of travelling through Vancouver Island we were happy to come back to spend our last days in Downtown Vancouver.
The apartment was very clean and well equipped with everything travellers need. The location is great to discover Downtown. Everything is in a short walking distance and there are a lot of great restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby.
Lili is a great host and was very welcoming. She really tries to make sure that her guests have everything what they need.
We couldn't think of a more ideal place to stay within the city. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this apartment to anyone. Thank you, Lili!
Lili is a great host! She is very caring! The apartment is beautiful, the view is amazing, the bed is very very comfortable, and the neighborhood is fantastic. You have everything you need very close to the apartment. Try the sushi at the Japanese restaurant half a block away and the Twisted Fork. I hope to go back soon! Thank you, Lili!
Great room right in the middle of downtown, very clean and lovely views.
Lili was amazing. We were already scheduled to arrive late, but we're delayed even further after a flight delay. Lili met us close to midnight to let us in, and still took the time to give us a run down of things to do while we were in the city. Will definitely stay in one of Lili's places if we are in Vancouver again.
A lovely place to stay with easy access to every where in Vancouver. The apartment is just in the center of the city, and basically near to everything. The apartment itself is clean and cozy with a wonderful city view. Highly recommend to everyone who is going to plan a trip in Vancouver.

I'm an Airbnb veteran, hosting since July 2010 and loving every minute of it. I do a lot of volunteering, namely as the vice-president of Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre, Director of Programming for Projecting Change Film Festival, and sit on the board of the Brazilian Consulate's Citizen Council.
I immigrated from Brazil to Vancouver 7 years ago and Ken, my partner, is the chief film critic of the Georgia Straight, Vancouver's weekly entertainment newspaper. Ken's son lives with us and works at a local movie theatre. As you can imagine, we watch more movies in one year than most people in their whole lives! I love cooking and baking with the great local products we find here.
I totally fell in love with Vancouver as soon as I got here, and I'm sure you will, too. (Or maybe you are returning for a visit and know exactly what I'm talking about!)
You will find a clean and comfortable apartment at the perfect location to explore the city, and I will do my best to make your stay enjoyable and stress-free.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Hope to see you soon!
