We stayed at Laurence's place for a week in July. Laurence was very welcoming and had tons to share about the city. The condo was very clean and modern. Not a lot of space, but worked great for my husband and I. Awesome location, close to everything we wanted to see with easy access to public transit. It was quite hot the week we were there, so the condo was warm, but Laurence left a fan for us. Overall, a great place to stay while seeing Vancouver!
Laurence made us feel welcome met us when we arrived. The condo was just as the description. The neighborhood was interesting .
This was my second month at L's place and I loved it even more. It was great stay ! Vancouver keeps gaining points and staying at L's place is the ideal place to make you fall in love with Vancouver.
I loved staying at Lawrence's condo, the location was perfect for me and I am looking forward to staying there again. It really felt like it was a home away from home since I stayed there for so long. The location is ideal for anybody that loves Gastown or main street. It is a short walk from both areas. As well, if you love running it is a quick 1km run from the seawall. The best part of the experience was dealing with Lawrence, I had mentioned to him that I was french in our initial conversation and from then on he always tried to communicate in french which was very respectful. Also the pick off and drop off of the keys was stress free and easy. I would highly recommend this place for anybody that really wants to enjoy Vancouver and really immerse themselves in a new upcoming neighborhood of the city. :-) Cute little shops and restaurants on Union ( literally a crawl away) :-)
I enjoyed my Xmas / New Year stay at Laurence's condo - very convenient location for visiting my family - home from home.
This was a great experience!! Laurence responded to all preliminary email promptly!
The apartment is light and bright and airy and tastefully furnished with great art on the walls!...There is a balcony with outdoor dining furniture. It is located in Chinatown which is great neighborhood fused with hip bars and restaurants. Walking distance to everywhere I needed to go. Vancouver is a fab city to visit with lots happening!!
We were welcomed by Laurence who gave us lots of advices and recommandations for restaurants. He was always available for us and answered quickly to our questions.
Even if we didn't like the street so much, the condo is nice, comfy, well furnished and well located (near bus stops, the skytrain station and the false creek for those who want to take the Aquabus).
We recommend it !
