The Space

You'll have this entire condo all to yourself, in this modern new high rise. This spacious, fully equipped private one bedroom has phenomenal high floor views of the city, water and mountains. Right in the heart of Gastown, you'll find shopping, entertainment, restaurants, sights, transit, theatre, yoga and the buzz of Vancouver's coolest and most historic neighborhood at your feet.
Located an 8 minute walk from the Skytrain and a 12 minute walk to the Vancouver Convention Centre, the building is a new highrise (built in 2010) with modern, executive style finishings. You'll have full access to the gym and hot tub. There is a coffee shop, restaurant/bar, drugstore and grocery store and bank in the ground floor of the building.
The furnishings are west coast style, with a real queen bed, feather duvet, large flat screen TV and DVD player, large comfy leather sectional, desk/workspace, full bathroom with tub and shower, washer and dryer, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, gas stove/oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, etc. You'll also have one parking spot if needed.
Of course, all of the linens, towels, dishes, etc are all here for your use during your stay.
Please note that you'll get only one key and fob to the apartment unless requested otherwise. If you choose to stay at my condo, your check-in procedure will be through a secure e-check-in, so worries about late/early check-in/check-out!

Drop me a line and let me know when you'd like to stay in beautiful Vancouver!

Interaction with Guests

I interact very little with guest, if at all. I'm happy to provide recommendations about great places in the neighbourhood, and I will stop by and drop off anything that's needed in the way of supplies. But for the most part, check in and check out is through the keypad/intercom system, and I just let the guests do their thing!

Other Things to Note

If for some reason you encounter the concierge staff please don't talk to them... they dislike Air bnb guests, and will try to fine me for renting out short term... if for some reason they talk to you, just say you're a friend staying with me.
Also, please respect the fact that this is a residential building, and the neighbors might not enjoy taking time out of their busy day to answer tourist questions/give directions. If you need assistance or directions, I'm just a phone call or text away.

Please no smoking. House trained, non-chewing, well behaved pets only.

  • The view was amazing. The bed was comfortable. Excellent location, close to all amenities. Parking was an added bonus. The building felt secure and safe.

  • We really enjoyed our stay. Great apartment, wonderful view, and all located close to down town. Would select it again.

  • Jennifer contacted us usually within 2 days of email. Neighbourhood is Gastown. Easy walk to Canada Place. Pubs and Restaurants within easy access.
    Great views of city.
    Cons - no airconditioning or fans. The weather was warming up as we stayed for 4 days at beg of May. Bedroom and Lounge window could be opened to provide slight ventilation but apartment could be stifling in summer. When windows were open, the apartment became very noisy, especially at night from street noise. I didn't expect this as it is on the 28th floor.
    Pillows on bed very thin and felt well used.
    Washing machine slow but not really an issue.
    Pros -Building well maintained. Felt safe in surrounding area. Kitchen well supplied. Great shower.

  • I couldn't have stayed (email hidden) in Vancouver !!!!!!
    Jen's place was great both location wise and also with respect to its cleanliness and convenience. The view from the apartment is exquisite. She (email hidden) and had a handful of recommendations about the area and lifestyle. Apart from the fact that the washing machine worked rather slowly (which she was very clear and upfront about and again I was not in Vancouver to do laundry) everything else was perfect. I will disagree with previous postings about the cleanliness of the house, cause you really cannot call the stains/marks on the quartz countertops as dirt. In Vancouver, if you want to enjoy the good food and nightlife, than there's no better place than to be in Gastown and Jen's place is just ideal.
    Thank you for hosting me and I hope I can call your place my only destination whenever I am in Vancouver

  • Would very likely not stay here or recommend anyone else does either. Location was adequately located from the city - a short 5 minute walk. Shops and stores all located within walking distance. Check in and check out was easy - Jennifer met us in the lobby and was accommodating for our later afternoon check in. The floor of apartment itself was undisputedly gorgeous and offered a great vantage point. However, the smell in the apartment was overwhelming, almost dreadful to re-enter the apartment. We had to buy air freshener and open windows to be able to remain inside. This said, it may not be Jennifer's fault as she does not clean it herself, but as a host I would assume the host would oversee the upkeep on a regular basis. The fridge was accompanied by the smell of filth and the bathroom seemed untended to between guests given the amount of urine on the floor and the seat. The towels felt unwashed and the shower was not the most appealing either. The area itself was not dirty but it did not feel clean or properly tended between guests - had us wondering about the bedsheets. The apartment in comparison to the pictures left a bit to be desired. Most things in the apartment that make it seem homey in the pictures are not present. Fair enough, not expecting family portraits, but the pictures and personal touches that had us drawn to the place enough to book it are lacking in existence.
    Upon notifying Jennifer of our less than pleasant experience, she was more than accommodating in offering an agreed discount for our stay. This is all very well, but the point is not to have a discount given - it is to have an experience you can leave a good review about. This is not one of them.

  • Stayed for 6 days in this beautiful apartment. When I first arrived, I was simply blown away by the views. Mountains, harbour, city. Truly the highlight of the rental. The apartment is incredibly well situated, only a 5 min walk to waterfront station (which offers a direct line to YVR, ridiculously convenient) and a 10-15 min walk to shopping and great restaurants. The rental itself could have done with a tad more tlc (had to dust off the couch and remove linens still wet in the washer upon my arrival), but having a washer, dryer and full kitchen was wonderful and overall, the experience was certainly something I would recommend to anyone traveling from near or far to Vancouver. Thanks Jennifer!

  • Everything went smoothly. We enjoyed our stay, the central location and the beautiful views.

  • Jennifer's place was in a great location and had terrific views looking towards Chinatown & Burnaby. She also left us some good recommendations for restaurants in the area. There's even a grocery store and drug store at the bottom of the building. The apartment was little short on amenities (i.e. extra toilet paper, minimal bath soap/shampoo) and don't count on doing laundry (machine doesn't work well) but it was otherwise sufficiently stocked. The apartment has seen a little wear but still is enjoyable. Thanks Jennifer!

  • We liked the place but compared to other airbnb's we have stayed at it was missing that home feeling and there was also the absence of a few basic supplies like toilet paper. Overall it is a good apartment in a great location with many restaurants and a market all close by. We did not actually meet Jennifer however the checkin was seamless.
