All about Chad’s place

This dramatic loft is perfectly situated on lower Yates St in the heart of old downtown. Close to all the best restaurants and shopping and just steps to the harbor!

The space
This loft is a modern conversion of the historic Oriental hotel building built in 1883. It's perfectly located in the centre of everything...with a walkscore of 100!

At over 600ft2 this is one of the largest units you can rent in The Oriental and is more than 50% larger than some of the other Airbnb rentals in the same building. Our loft is also one of the only units with the large, iconic bay windows which face south to Yates, so there is lots of sun and activity on the street.

It's compact but fully equipped with a complete kitchen, washer/dryer combo unit and separate bathroom.

The sleeping loft up the ladder is a cozy nest with a regular Queen bed (new tempurpedic mattress). **Please note the loft ceiling height is 4'4", so it's cozy for sleeping but not so great for basketball...

For those who prefer to not climb into the loft (or extra guests) there is convertible couch in the main space that forms a second comfy Queen bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped...most importantly with 3 coffee making methods...though if you must have something else with your coffee: we've also got pots, frying pan, kettle, teapot, microwave, dinnerware, wine glasses, chef's knives, cutting board and a toaster. Unless you're planning to cook a turkey dinner we've got you covered:)

One of us (C) is an artist so you'll get a revolving gallery of finished paintings and work in progress.
