About this listing
Whether you are a business executive, a romantic couple, a sports fan, or a family on vacation, you will love this century old apartment in the heart of downtown Vancouver with original brick walls, exposed beams, free wireless internet, elegant fireplace and a bay window bench seat to look out on the city.
Location, location, location! The building is in the heart of Vancouver's best retail shopping as well as casual and elegant dining - with food from around the globe. It is located just around the corner from the Robson street shopping street, 2 blocks from Pacific Centre mall, 1 block from the Vancouver Art Galley, 1 block from the prime office towers, just 5 blocks to the ocean and the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre and less than a 15 minutes walk to BC place Stadium and Rogers Arena for football and hockey games. It is also within walking distance to Stanley Park, Yaletown, and the Vancouver seawall.
The building was built in classical Victorian style and is extremely well-maintained. It is one of the very few pre-1920 buildings within the city center.
The apartment is fully furnished with a queen sized bed and thick organic topped mattress, sectional pull out sofa in the living room, an heirloom dining room table with leather chairs, and two flat screen HDTVs. It has a full kitchen with fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave as well as a washer and dryer.

If you are arriving at the Vancouver International Airport, you can take the skytrain and get off at the City Centre station and walk 3 blocks. If you are driving, we will give you directions to the apartment. Parking is available for an additional fee of $16 per night.

No more than 6 people in the apartment at any given moment. For the health and comfort of residents and tenants, there is positively no smoking in our apartment.

About the Host, Adine And David
We live in Vancouver and love all that this city has to offer. We ski, sail, hike and enjoy seeing the world. We live in the most beautiful part of West Vancouver and our city apartment is the best part of downtown Vancouver. A few years ago we visited Budapest and fell in love with this beautiful city. So much so that we bought and renovated a protected heritage apartment there, in the 5th district. We love how vibrant and international it feels.
We travel as much as we can, and have had the opportunity to see many places. Over the years we've learned what we appreciate most about the places we stay in. Our desire has been to create a warm and welcoming experience for our guests in each of our apartments. You will find that they are light and airy, comfortable, elegant, fresh and clean, well stocked and well cared for. Our kitchen is a kitchen you can cook in and our rooms are all well appointed. Our goal is to make your stay memorable and relaxing and for you to feel at home.
