The apartment is in a great location, 300 metres from the Stadium/Chinatown Sky Train station and close to city bus routes, the nearby route 19 is very handy for Stanley Park and downtown. There are good food stores nearby and dining options for all tastes within 15 minutes walk. We found the apartment to be very comfortable and well equipped with good cooking facilities. The apartment building is secure with good access control; the indoor pool and gym were also very good. Ovey was very facilitating when we needed to check in earlier than planned. As our first experience with Air B&B it worked out very well and we wish Ovey every success with her apartment for the future. John and Trish, Dublin.
Ovey's place is perfectly located for exploring downtown Vancouver. It was spotlessly clean and really cute - loved the piano! The block is also really well maintained, would highly recommend this apartment.

This was a great stay for us while in Vancouver. We found Ovey's apartment just as shown in the photos - in other words, really nice! Ovey was very accommodating in allowing my wife and I to stay there with two smaller children (12 and 9) even though the listing mentions 3 people as the capacity. With some rearranging of the cushions (some on the floor), we managed fine. Our stay there coincided with some atypically hot weather and we had the windows open and the provided fans going most of the time. We were comfortable like that, but others more picky might want to seek find a place with air conditioning. As the apartment is very conveniently located close to Gastown (mmm, lots of good eating - the Tuc Craft Kitchen was amazing), expect typical downtown (i.e. not suburban) noise levels. Again, nothing that bothered us, but worth pointing out to avoid unexpected surprises.
Ovey (who unfortunately we did not meet in person) provided a handy set of instructions to get us going and was a wonderful silent host. In terms of location, this apartment is ideal. It's walking distance to many interesting places and there is reasonably cheap car parking through both the street (free from 10pm to 9am) parking and underground car parks (about $17/day). We didn't get a chance to use the pool since the Vancouver beaches were pretty nice and we were out until late evening each day. Before I forget, the piano is also a nice bonus for those who like to play. To sum it up, I'd have no problem booking Ovey's place again!
We stayed four nights at 'Ovey's' and really felt like home.
Ovey was very uncomplicated and after some messages we felt like staying with a friend and not a stranger. We were very lucky to met her before we left.
The apartment is really nice, there is all you need in the neighborhood and after a long day exploring Vancouver it was just brillant to take a swim in the pool *(25m) which belongs to the building.
Staying with Ovey made us feel like being part of the city and not just a tourist...you should book it ;)
