Deanna was very accommodating regarding our arrival time. When we arrived she showed us around the apartment including all of the amenities, and then quickly departed. The apartment matched the listing perfectly. It was clean, bright and cheerful. The bio-mat was fantastic, and the deep tub was awesome. It is located right in the middle of downtown Vancouver within walking distance to lots of great neighborhoods. There is a grocery store on the corner and shops, restaurants, and bars scattered around the adjacent blocks. Whenever I am heading back to Vancouver I will be checking to see if Deanna's place is available.
If you are looking for the perfect location to stay, this is it! Deanna and Paul's home is within a short walking distance to everything-coffee shops, restaurants, movie theaters, pubs, grocery stores, shopping and entertainment venues. Walk 15 minutes and you can be in any of the surrounding neighborhoods. If you feel the need to venture further, all forms of public transportation are readily available and easily accessible if you don't have a car or don't want to drive. If you do have a car, there is a public parking lot just around the corner from their building.
Deanna and Paul are very gracious and conscientious hosts. Prior to arriving, Deanna emailed us three pages of information about building security (there is a concierge), restaurant recommendations, and recommendations on where to shop nearby for quality food. Good health and nutrition are important to both Deanna and Paul and they have the kitchen to prove it. It is stocked with the latest appliances for healthy food preparation if you decide to stay in and prepare a meal yourself. Deanna even provides recipes for some of their favorite meals. Their home was spotless and contained everything that we needed. When you are ready to go to bed, I guarantee that you will have one of the best night's sleep you have ever experienced on their new king-size bed.
Both Deanna and Paul met us in their home and gave us instructions on how to use all the amenities both in their home and in their building (gym and hot tub). Although they were leaving the city while we were there, Deanna contacted us to make sure everything was OK. She was easy to contact and always reachable.
We had a great stay in Vancouver and we can't recommend Deanna and Paul's home enough. If you need a place to stay in Vancouver, here it is!
Deanna was a very accommodating host. The condo was lovely as was the neighbourhood was extremely convenient. However it was a little short on basic supplies such as toilet paper, salt & pepper, cling wrap, soap etc. There is a grocery store very close by which you can at least buy these things yourself.
Deanna and Paul are excellent host. Easy to deal with. The apartment is centrally located. Close to everything including a wine store :) The place is clean and safe. Highly receommended !!!
This place is a gem! It straddles the line between the downtown shopping district and a residential area on the way to Stanley Park and West End. This made everything convenient to walk to... Cafés, the beach, etc. it is situated set back from a busy street, which made is surprisingly quiet.
The space had lots of natural light, a well-stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, and great layout of the living area and bathroom. After long days of being out on the town, it was a cozy, comfortable place to rest.
The hosts were outstanding! They were flexible with check in/out times. Communication was thorough, they offered excellent recommendations, and even provided instructions for some of the (specialty) small appliances. They are genuine, happy, and kind, and we could not have asked for more. They were able to be reached during our stay. In fact, I had an unexpected work situation that came up (requiring use of a laptop) and they went above and beyond to accommodate.
A+++ Highly recommended and hope to stay here again in the future!
High Vibes is amazing!! This location is perfect for a couple or single person who would like to enjoy downtown Vancouver and surrounding areas within walking distance.
The one bedroom condo is the heart of downtown and there is a lot to do within walking distance. I would recommend parking in a daily lot, which we found off of Hornsby Ave just a few blocks away, and take the time to stroll around, rent bikes, or use public transit to get around if walking isn't your thing.
The floor to ceiling windows provide a beautiful view of the city all day and the stars late at night. The balcony is a perfect area to enjoy morning tea or maybe a yoga practice. :) And all the wonderful household gadgets make it so easy to relax and enjoy the space, make meals, or just take in the breathtaking view, I especially loved the water system in the bathroom that provided the cleanest drinking and cleansing water ever! Oh, and the bed was a new addition to our stay....and let me tell you, I had the most comfortable sleep I ever experienced while traveling! The king size therapeutic mattress and pillows were so incredibly comfortable I didn't want to get up each morning, but fortunately, the view and the gentle noise from downtown would get us up and ready to embrace the beauty of Vancouver!
Deanna was very patient and informative about communicating and addressing all of our questions and concerns in a timely manner. She even provided a detailed email describing places to eat and things to do. She was very flexible with our times to check in and out. Deanna really gave a sense of making sure we felt welcomed and at home. Which we did!! High Vibes has an energy of comfort, peace, and hospitality. Definitely worth checking out!
Deanna and Paul were great hosts and their apartment made for a wonderful stay in downtown Vancouver. It is simple with character, very warm and peaceful and a welcomed change from a stark hotel-style lodging. We also loved the health and wellness gadgets that we got to try out while we were there including the "better than purified" water and the amazing relaxing bio mat. I would stay there anytime if it was available.
