The building is at the corner of Nelson and Burrard streets, right at the centre of downtown.

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.
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).
Lilly was really thoughtful. The studio was soooooo good and convenient to stay in and located in the center of downtown.
Great location and so very comfortable. And all so seamlessly organised! Lili very kind and helpful.
Lili was out of town for the long weekend when we visited, but a friend of hers easily let us in to the building and apartment. Lili still kindly communicated with us asking about our stay. The space is just as the pictures show--very simple and clean. Great location and distance to most all Vancouver spots and attractions. It was nice to have access to the gym too!
The location is fantastic. The unit well equipped and very well maintained. Lili was lovely and most accommodating with check in/check out and imparting knowledge about the city. I would absolutely stay again.
Lili is a fantastic host! The apartment is beautiful and well-appointed and has everything we needed for our stay. Very convenient location in the heart of downtown. Lili also had some excellent coffee recommendations for us to investigate and gave us great starting points for each neighbourhood
Lili was an extremely welcoming and helpful host. She accommodated for our early arrival, provided plenty of good advice and made herself available should anything be needed. The apartment was spacious and modern situated in the heart of Vancouver. Overall Lili was a great host providing the perfect base to experience Vancouver. Thank you Lili!
My husband and I stayed here during our first week of relocating to Vancouver from Australia. Lili made the whole process easy even though she was out of town the day we checked in. Her husband greeted us with the keys upon arrival and explained how everything worked. She even got in contact as soon as she returned to the city offering her advice or any assistance we needed. The apartment was perfect! Perfect location - walking distance to main shopping strip and plenty of surrounding restaurants and a grocery store right across the road. The apartment itself was perfect as well. Very clean, beautifully decorated and had everything needed even if you wanted to cook your own meals. Fast wifi, TV and even umbrellas for the rainy days. The laundry room was right down the hall as well. This is by far the best air bnb experience I've had so far and the price was very reasonable as well. I would recommend Lili's apartments for anyone wanting the perfect downtown Vancouver experience.

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!
