About this listing
Great location! Commercial Drive is little Italy---steps to Italian coffee shops, a wonderful variety of international restaurants, small shops, quaint pubs, an indoor swimming pool, gym, skating rink and a fun kids' park right across the street!
This neighbourhood has it all and within steps from your living room! A vibrant neighbourhood in the heart of Commercial Drive.
A two bedroom (2 Queen beds) and one large, wide sectional sofa in the living room for one person; two balconies; communal roof top deck overlooking mountains and downtown; open plan living room, dining room and kitchen; gas fireplace; and in-suite laundry.
A bus to downtown stops right in front of our building and gets you downtown in 15 minutes. You can also walk to the Commercial/Broadway Skytrain (15 minutes) and hop on the skytrain and be downtown in less than 10 minutes.
Famous Stanley Park and the Vancouver Aquarium is a 15 minute drive or 30 minutes by public transit. If you have a rental car, there is street parking and you are a less than 10 minute drive to downtown and 90 minutes to Whistler.
If you're a skier, the local mountains are within view from our rooftop deck and about 30 minutes by car and less than an hour by public transit.
We do have an aquarium with angel fish that will need to be fed---low maintenance, yet fun to watch. Our cat was mentioned in the reviews, but she is no longer with us.
No Smoking. No pets.
The place is in a fantastic neighbourhood. Literally about one minute or less walk to great bars restaurants and a market for grocery shopping. Donna also left us a list of suggested places near by for our trip. Her cat Sally also made us feel very welcome.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a short stay in Vancouver. It's very close to a lot of great places to eat, and there's a bus stop right outside for a bus that goes downtown. The apartment itself is lovely. It's well furnished and has all of the facilities you need to make your stay comfortable. Unless you have allergies, there is no need to be put off by the cat. She is low maintenance and very friendly.
Thank you Donna we had a great time in Vancouver. Your place was amazing. So close to everything and in a very upbeat and interesting neighbourhood. We really enjoyed the wonderful space that you have created in your home. We were all very comfortable and had a great stay. I strongly recommend this airb&b accom.
Le voyage s'est fait en trois parties : Vancoiuver et sa région, Ucluelet sur l'île de Vancouver et Victoria.
Nous avons énormément appréciés les paysages magnifiques que nous avons vu et Victoria. La ville de Vancouver est un peu moins attrayante à l'exception de Stanley Park et de Granville Island.
A ne pas manqer : la région à proximité de Vancouver (Whistler, Lynn Canyon), l'île de Vancouver et ses forêts très denses et sa côte magnifique.
Une location de voiture est conseillée.
