Bright and sunny 5th-floor loft with west-facing views of the city and mountains through floor-to-ceiling windows. Concrete floors and walls, open concept with balcony for fresh air and even more views! Building is a modern condo with secure entry (via fob), a small on-site gym on main floor (via key) and two elevators. This is an urban apartment so there will be some street sounds, but it's definitely not "noisy".
New, stainless appliances including dishwasher and gas range along with a washer and dryer. Fresh 100% cotton linens and down duvet on the pillow-top queen bed, fluffy towels and heated floors in the bathroom, always super clean. Wireless internet and over 300 channels of TV, music and movies. Nespresso coffee maker for the best cappucinos and lattes! Also a pull-out queen sofa-bed (good for 2 guests who prefer not to share), and a cozy electric fireplace. The sunny balcony has a bistro table and 2 chairs, and a small Weber propane grill.
Underground parking is possible, however there is tons of free, safe and unrestricted street parking all around the building, and it's never a problem to find a spot.
Come and stay in the heart of Vancouver near Main & Broadway, with awesome restaurants, funky coffee shops, live music venues and easy access to transit. It's very handy if you have an event at the Heritage Hall too!
Guests have access to the entire suite including the balcony and BBQ grill, the east-facing common deck down the hall, and the shared common gym on the main floor (just past the entrance to the building once you're inside - across from mail boxes). Access to underground parking space is by prior arrangement only.
I'm a hands-off host (once you arrive, the place is truly yours - no awkward meet-ups or waiting around). I have an easy arrangement for you to pick up and drop off the key and fob at your convenience, but I'm always just a phone call, email or text away if you need anything.
The Mount Pleasant neighborhood is lively and vibrant with all the trendy cafes and restaurants you could want. Favorites of mine include the Cascade (great bar with local wines and beer, and polenta fries to die for!), Burdock (higher end but cozy restaurant), Little Charlie's (casual Italian fare - yummy pasta and pizza) and 49th Parallel coffee (with Lucky's donuts, and free wi-fi during the week, great place to work for a change of pace!)
The location could not be closer or more convenient to access public transit. One block away, there are buses running east and west (eg: 99) as well as those going downtown (eg: 3, 19) including transfers to the Canada Line going to the airport and downtown. Also, lots of shared car services nearby (Car2Go, Zipcar, etc) if you want to go this route instead of renting a vehicle at the airport.
Get ready to enjoy your home away from home in the heart of this beautiful city!
I went on a last minute weekend trip to Vancouver and Alexandra was quick to respond, very friendly and accommodating. Getting access to the loft was simple and the space was exactly as pictured. The space is light, nicely decorated and really comfortable.
It's a wonderful place to stay, located in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood and walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants and lots of fun boutiques. I would definitely stay there again!
Alexandra's apartment was great and she was extremely helpful and thorough throughout the entire process! The apartment was clean and beautiful! We will definitely book again if we're in Vancouver!
Glorious place to stay. Perfect, immaculate condo with a great kitchen and stunning sunset views. The neighbourhood is lively and stylish. It's really easy to get to the other parts of Vancouver from the great central location. We went to Vancouver for Christmas and had the best time.
The decor and ambience of the condo was so stylish, that the visitors we had thought it was one of best one bed condos in the city.
I had been looking for a place to stay in the Mount Pleasant area, mainly because of it's proximity to Main Street as well as Broadway. These two streets have some of the best restaurants and coffee shops in Vancouver in my opinion. Modern, classy and very inviting, I immediately felt at home upon entering Alexandra's loft. Decorated uniquely but not cluttered or overcrowded. I found myself preferring to grab take out to eat back at the loft rather than in the restaurant. All the amenities you need for a stay, be it for work or play. Bed is very comfortable and everything was clean and fresh. Alexandra was out of the country, but left contact information in case of any issues. She was prompt in replying to email questions. Lots of parking on the street, but realistically everything you really need is within walking distance. A block from a grocery store. Next time I probably won't rent a car and will probably use the Car2Go service instead. They are easily accessible in this neighbourhood. For those looking for entertainment, there is a music / nightclub venue down the street called The Biltmore Cabaret. Always lots of great indie bands and great shows going on if that's your scene. All in all I completely enjoyed this stay here and would absolutely book it again. In fact I am already planning my next business trip around staying at this loft. Thanks again Alexandra!
Fun location, perfect views and easy parking. Host very accommodating and the condo has everything you would need for a great stay in the city :)
The loft was beautiful - Alex left us maps of the area and everything we could possibly need for our trip. We were within walking distance to multiple stores and shops. The loft was awesome and the host made it an even better experience.
A lovely apartment in a great location with easy-access to public transit and plenty of free street parking. There is a supermarket literally on the doorstep and a number of coffee shops nearby.
Bright and spacious, with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a break in the city. Having a great view of Celebration of Light fireworks from the balcony was an added bonus.
Although we didn't meet Alex during our trip, communication was excellent throughout - the key pick-up and drop-off was very convenient.
It was a great experience to live there! All the photos represent the real apartment - we enjoyed our stay there! It was comfortable, clean and modernly furnished. Next to apartment are a lot of coffeshops and a supermarket. Alex left drinks, food in the fridge and some maps on the table. Thank you!
Great location and view, super comfortable and easy to arrange/communicate. Highly recommended!
Alex was great and her place was just as described. She communicated clearly and in a timely fashion. Her loft was very cozy: super comfy bed, quiet, nicely decorated. I felt at home and very safe there. Lots of free parking on the street. Great shower pressure. I would recommend this loft without hesitation. Thanks Alex for making us feel at home, and for being so well organized!
