We know what it takes to create a great visit in an unfamiliar city- we want our place to feel like a home away from home.
We've traveled all over and have used similar services ourselves. We are very open to feedback and will do our best to provide tips on the best places to see in the area.
Access to fully equipped gym, rooftop patio, underground parking.
This is a non-smoking apartment- even on the balcony :-)

. . . and do your best to keep the place tidy and respect as you would your own home- thanks!
This stay was terrific. It met every one of our expectations and then some! Diane was responsive and sensitive to our needs. With air travel delays, we arrived quite late yet she remained flexible and cooperative in seeing that we got comfortably situated in the unit without a hitch. The space is bright, airy, and beautifully decorated with all the features normally needed for a most pleasant stay - and has great views to boot. We certainly would return!
This place in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Vancouver is exactly as shown in the pictures. Right from the start, there are awesome views of downtown Vancouver and BC Place.
Check in/Check out with Diane was very easy; she brought us to our parking spot (which was convenient to have for our stay) and then gave us the overview of the building before leaving us to enjoy the city.
The area around the apartment has great restaurants, bars, breweries, places for dessert, etc. We were able to walk around the area easily and even walked from the apartment to Gastown and back without a problem. It is also really close to a walking/biking trail all along False Creek that brings you to Granville Island and Stanley Park.
If/When we head back to Vancouver, we would definitely stay in this apartment again!
Diane hat sich kam sofort als wir uns gemeldet haben, die wohnung war wie beschrieben. Nachbarschaft haben wir nicht kennengelernt, wir waren hauptsächlich in Vancouver.
Diane's condo is modern and well appointed (stainless steel appliances/ample cabinetry) and spotless. The views of Vancouver are incredible, both from your own small veranda and from the building rooftop patio.
Diane was very accommodating by personally guiding us to our private reserved, underground parking space ( a huge plus in any major city) and showing us the condo. She basically said everything inside is self explanatory and that is it in a nutshell. No complications what-so-ever. Vancouver is easily drivable but parking rates are steep. From the condo it's a half block to a downtown bus stop and a 10 minute walk to the AirTrain rapid transit. This is an excellent location and a terrific value for such a beautiful major city.

About the Host, Diane
I've lived and worked in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood for 15 years and I've lived in Vancouver for over 40 years. I’ve been a teacher, a counsellor and an artist and now I call myself a community builder . . . currently working on developing an urban farm . . . This rapidly growing neighbourhood is full of interesting restaurants, microbreweries, & small and eclectic clothing shops and art galleries within a short walk from the apartment. The neighbourhood has everything you need right at hand and is, I think, the best neighbourhood in this city.
I love my friends, conversations over coffee at gene cafe ( around the corner), music, art & books ( best bookstore Pulp Fiction also around the corner), dancing, gardening, walking by the ocean, kickboxing and being creative.
My favorite travel destinations are London UK, anywhere in France, Berlin, Bali, Mexico and my next adventure.
I speak pretty good French, & some German.
