Shawn and Anna were very good with the personal contact even before we arrived, letting us know about drive times and arranging us to text them when we were getting close. When we pulled up, they were there to greet us. Shawn was VERY good about explaining the amenities and gave us a personal tour of the property. I was impressed by his attention to detail and service. As for the condo, we were very happy with our first AirBnB experience. The place looked just like the pictures. It was very clean and modern. Our beds were comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with all the basics. There was even laundry in the unit complete with detergent. We used the indoor pool every day we were there and it was never crowded. In fact we had it to ourselves for much of the time. My wife also used the workout room that overlooked the pool that I used with my children. The area has been described by some reviews as a little dodgy, but we didn't find that at all. It's the downtown of a major city and there will always be a grittier side, but we felt very safe and there were tons of restaurants to choose from including a pizza place with tons of board games just a few doors down. (The winner got a free meal too!) Also though, I packed a few food items from home, there's really no need. There's a grocery store kitty corner to the building and a liquor store across the street. Plus there's coffee, a separate place for pastries, and much more all practically downstairs. The parking was a little complicated to navigate at first, but once we found it, it was easy after that. I would highly recommend this place, and now knowing Shawn and Anna, I would not hesitate to stay at any of their properties. We had a great time!!!
The apartment was in a great neighborhood - walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Shawn was incredibly friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my time in Vancouver!
The apt. was neat and well organized. There was everything my family needed while we stayed at the apt. for two weeks. I liked the interior style very much. The building is new and has pool where my sons enjoyed swimming almost everyday.
The building is very convenient to the skytrain station, 2-3 min. walking distance. There are big Chinese grocery store, a couple of coffee shop, movie theatre, and many restaurants in the neighborhood.
Most of all, I would love to say warm thanks to the host, Shawn. He was amazingly nice and sensible. He came to the apt to give me an extra key as soon as I called him when my son carelessly locked one of the room doors, with such a wonderful manner! Also, Thank you Shawn for the lovely welcome treats, wine, chocolate, buns and the beautiful flowers. I hope we will have chance to meet again. :-)
The apartment is nice but small. Recommend if you don’t have children, you’re a very heavy sleeper and love to party.
The upstairs neighbor is LOUD! They kept us up late the entire stay (3:30am, 2am ect). The last night they had a party and tossed their cigarette & marijuana butts onto our patio (even while we were outside)!
Had to keep the windows shut for most of our stay. The neighbors were always getting high, swearing or both.
And I would do a search for east Vancouver before considering renting this or any place. A lot of homeless and drugs users. The ghetto of Vancouver sums it up.
The host acted surprised but I am sure this is what always occurs…
Thank you for taking the time to leave me a review and mentioning that the apartment is nice I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience from the building neighbors. For the record I did not act surprised and I was completely not aware of the neighbor’s behavior. I was only made aware of the inconvenience on the last night of Cecilia’s 4 night stay and from there I immediately contacted the 24hr building security to document, investigate and issue a warning to the neighbor. Smoking, partying and excessive noise is not tolerated in the building complex. My personal phone number is provided in the Airbnb reservation and in the home manual and is meant for any emergencies including events that cause inconvenience during your stay. I wish you had contacted me at the earliest instead of leaving it for your last night of stay.
In regards to Cecelia’s comment about the apartment located in East Vancouver and “A Ghetto Sums it up”, this would be highly inaccurate. The apartment is located in Downtown Vancouver in the Tinseltown/Gastown Area and is a close walking distance to the core of Downtown, Yaletown, Falsecreek and Olympic Village. This area has undergone a wealth of transformation and development as more than 15+ apartment towers and over 2500+ condo apartments are newly built within the last 5-10 years within the 3-4 block radius. It is a preferred area by the local Vancourites and small families due to the location, amenities (3-4 supermarkets within 1 block, mall with cinema next door, large park next door) and convenience (underground skytrain station 0.5 block away).
We encourage interested Airbnb guests to look up the street address of 58 Keefer Pl , 688 Abbott St, 689 Abbott St, 188 Keefer Pl to get an idea of the buildings nearby, area and the neighborhood.
We take our Airbnb hosting very seriously as we have been Airbnb hosts since August 2009. Please see our prior guest reviews and contact with any questions or concerns. We are here to make sure your stay is pleasant and enjoyable.
Flat was small but fine for our needs. The gym, pool, hot tub and sauna in the building were a nice extra! Communion with Shawn was easy and fast. If anything he over communicted! No complaints there! The only slightly negative things were the area was a little dodgy and there weren't many great places to eat within walking distance if you didnt want chinese or Japanese food. Also the buzzer didnt work so we weren't able to get food delivered. Other than that everything was great!
I am glad you found everything great. However I disagree with your comment on the restaurant selection and the area as a little dodgy. Within 2-3 blocks you'll find a selection of restaurants with all available cuisines types. Gastown is 3-4 blocks away from the apartment and it's where you will find the City's best restaurants including (Boneta, L'Abattoir, Pidgin, Bestie, Chambar & Medina Cafe, Pourhouse and many more!). We've also included a restaurant guide in the home & city manual with a wide selection of restaurants. This area has undergone new development (10+ towers & 2500+ apts built in the last 5-10 years) and is widely desired by local vancourites and growing families for the downtown location and convenience to the amenities.
