Stylish loft in the heart of Vancouver's hip Gastown area. Located a half a block from the best restaurants, boutique shopping and clubs Vancouver has to ofter.
(and they're all around the corner so our building is QUIET :)
10-15min walk to:
Two Seawall walks
3 skytrain stations (1 which goes direct to international airport.)
Note: no TV, but we have a LARGE wall projector to view shows from your laptop...it's like you're at the movies ;)
Secure parking upon request but not alway available. Meter parking also cheap in this area.
Fantastic space and simple check in - ideal location for exploring the Gastown area. The loft was clean and all things were in working order. We would absolutely go back. Ken and Kristy were very accommodating hosts!
We stayed at Kristy's for a mother/daughter girls weekend. It's really just like the pictures, very stylish! I would definitely stay there again. The unit was very clean - we could not figure out how to turn on the main lighting, which was unfortunate, be sure to ask when you check in! It was right in the middle of the trendy shops and restaurants in Gastown, so very convenient to walk to dinner, brunch, etc. (If you are not familiar with Gastown, be prepared that it is the area with services for a large homeless and drug population. Can be an odd mix) There is no parking at the building so we paid $20 for 24 hours at a lot on Hastings and Abbot.
Kristy was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times. The apartment was stunning as pictured in the listing. Great spot!
This stylish,spacious and well appointed loft apartment is ideally placed for a few days enjoying the delights of Vancouver. Kristy was away but her delightful husband Ken greeted us very hospitably and everything worked really smoothly.We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was a brilliant start to our holiday. The neighbourhood was perfect for us- lots of stylish shops and eating places and easy to get to all the main attractions. Also loved the big windows and views of city buildings. Highly recommended - unless you have any mobility issues and want to sleep in the main bedroom in which case the steps up and down to the mezzanine might be tricky. Everything else on the level though with a lift up to the apartment from street level.
We loved staying at Kristy's apartment. It is beautiful, bright and huge! In a great location for exploring Gastown and Vancouver.
Kristy was a really friendly and generous host - she met us at the apartment and showed us everything we might need for our stay, organised parking, keys, etc, and recommended bars and restaurants in the area.
I am so in love with Kristy & Ken's place! It was absolutely amazing. The pictures are bang on with the feel of the place. Brought my mother so was a bit nervous that she might find the area uncomfortable but it was great, really not an issue at all. The food in the area was to die for and location was so central. If Kristy and Ken will have me I will be back for sure! If you have a chance experience this loft!
Incredibly well decorated loft in hip gastown. Would stay again next time we're in Vancouver!
Our experience was both good and bad. We had trouble getting the key because Kristy was trying out a service that didn't really work, the place was dirty and we had to phone a friend of Kristy's to come and clean, there were no sheets for the second bed so I had to go buy sheets and we had to make special arrangements to hand the key in when we left. There was no information about where to put the garbage or for that matter how to get into the courtyard, building etc. Finally though Kristy told me that she would reimburse me for the sheets and for one night's stay because of all the problems, I had to remind her and she reimbursed only for the sheets. On a more positive note the apartment was very comfortable and in a good location. Once we got things organized, we really enjoyed our stay.
Kristy's space was perfect for us, it's a wonderful loft with full amenities.
Kristy was very easy to get a hold of throughout the whole process - she even arranged for someone to meet us at the loft to "check us in" at around 10:30pm!
Five stars! There was a bottle of wine there waiting for us as well! So six stars!
Thanks so much! - Will definitely stay again.
Kristy's loft is amazing, hard to believe, but it looks even better in real life than it does in the pictures! My sister and I stayed for 2 days, and it's in the perfect location to enjoy the wonders of the city! The beds are really comfy so you can get a good night sleep before hitting the town! Kristy was really accommodating with us for check-in/check out and i would most definitely stay at this place again in the future.
