Justin and Tracy are lovely hosts. Their home is extraordinary. Beautifully decorated, wonderfully appointed. The location is terrific. Easy walk to all the best of Vancouver. What a wonderful experience.
Thank you Lisa and thank you for leaving our place so tidy.
Wow! That's the best way to describe Justin's accommodations. The loft is situated right smack dab in the middle of Chinatown and that adds to the beauty of staying in a place submerged in the local culture. There is no better way to experience Vancouver then to stay here. The location is ideal in the sense that it is easy to navigate to just about any part of downtown Vancouver. Gastown, one of the hippest places, most recently named the 4th most stylish neighborhoods, is just 15 min away, filled with great restaurants and bustling until late at night. We also found some of the best hidden gems of restaurants right around the corner (Big Trouble!). And of course, the Keefer Bar right below us was a find in itself.
The accommodations themselves are unique and surprisingly comfortable for a family of four. We had two young adults in tow and they loved the place just as much as my architect husband and I. Filled with interesting artwork, the huge loft (a flat in the real sense) boasts beautiful bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen stocked with every imaginable accessory for kitchen and bath alike. We all voted the couch as the best couch ever, on which we were able to all sit and watch the NHL Draft on the 65" flat screen TV. The beds were also very comfortable and the sheets top quality.
Just a few words of caution: the parking is not provided with the unit, but there is a very accessible parking garage across the street. It did not have in/out privileges so the parking got to be a little pricey, but still less than a hotel parking fee. We also arrived on a wickedly hot weekend and the living room and kitchen were toasty, but the bedrooms had air conditioning units and they worked well enough for us to sleep comfortably. The place was also spotless!
Finally, Justin was receptive to all of my questions and responded immediately even though he was half a world away. He checked in intermittently to make sure all of our needs were met. There is no question about it...we will be back! Thanks Justin for helping make our long weekend great!
Thank you so much Viktorija, it was pleasure to have you and i hope you had a great time.
The home was extraordinary and so unique. The combination of great design, beautiful art, lively neighborhood location and comfort was terrific!
Thanks to Justin for accommodating us--I will heartily recommend the place to all my 'urbanist' friends!
Thank you Jonathan. safe travels.
If you are headed to Vancouver, you could not ask for a better host than Justin or a better location than this amazing loft. This was my first Airbnb experience, and it could not have been better. We arrived from the airport to be met curbside at the loft by Justin's warm and wonderful friend, who showed us the space and stayed until all of our questions were answered. As I was traveling with 3 ten year olds, there were a lot of questions - one or two of which actually had to do with the apartment. The kids were in awe of the space, especially the heavy bag and the elevator that opened right into the suite. The loft is truly beautiful, yet for all its style and character, it is genuinely comfortable and easy to settle into. On the 4th floor of a historically significant building, the apartment is located in the perfect location, with great restaurants on the block and easy access to the best of Vancouver. The hip shops and restaurants of Gastown are a few blocks away; the science center and the waterfront of False Creek are a short walk the other way. The more upscale restaurants and shops of Yaletown are an easy 15 minute walk (even with kids), and the downtown core is just as accessible. Library Square, which is a key stop for shuttles to Capilano and other attractions is even closer. The Chinatown/Stadium station is a skip away, but with Main Street so close by, it was a breeze to get a cab. We felt perfectly situated, and we loved how this amazing city felt so beautifully laid out for us. Justin provided an informative and easy to follow guide to the apartment and the city, and as a result, my kids and I felt like we had complete command of Vancouver from our first excursion into the city. It truly was an ideal trip, and we have Justin and his amazing home to thank for it. I asked my kids how many stars out of five to give Justin as a host and this apartment. Their answer: "Three hundred billion and two."
Adam. thank you for your kind review. I sure hope you and the kids had a good trip. Thanks for looking after our place , safe trip home.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Vancouver, look no further. This loft is perfect. When we first walked into the unit we said "wow". The loft was clean and looked better in person than the pictures. Justin and Tracy were so welcoming and made us feel at home. They gave us a list of suggested restaurants and coffee shops in the area and they were amazing. We felt safe and secure everywhere we went. Quick walk to gas town and downtown core. We have already suggested this place to family and friends and we hope to stay here again when we return to Vancouver!
Alissa , thanks for your kind words, hope to see you back soon.
This was our first time using an Airbnb and the experience was fantastic! The apartment far exceeded our expectations. It was stylish, immaculate and HUGE! The location was centrally located and walking distance to almost every fabulous restaurant and area in the city. Justin and Tracy were gracious and welcoming hosts. They provided wonderful recommendations and local insight. Everything was spot on. We will be back!
Safe Travels Chiristine , great to meet you.
It would be difficult to find a nicer place to stay anywhere. Justin was welcoming and gracious in his welcome and tour. His flat is incredibly spacious, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped with everything you need and is beautiful. Never heard a sound from the neighbours. The location is perfect for many things in Vancouver. Nothing could make this a better place to stay.
Many thanks Michael , come back soon.
We had a wonderful weekend at this gorgeous property! Very gracious hosts, perfectly appointed home, great restaurants nearby... We will look forward to returning soon!
We're so glad you had a good time Alana, thanks for looking after our home, and come back any time
Justin was the perfect host. Kind, responsive, and always at the ready to accommodate any request we might have. The apartment is stylish but comfortable, centrally located, and is the perfect way to experience Vancouver's downtown. Would certainly come back.
Great guest can recommend to any other host
It was a great pleasure to welcome Justin. Easy communication prior arrival, he's very respectful and took care of the apartment. We will be glad to welcome him another time. Ludovic
Justin & his wife are very smart, very friendly and respectful. It was a pleasure to have them as guests and will be a pleasure always if they want to come back.
Justin and his wife were incredible guests. Despite the fact they only stayed one night it was a pleasure having them in Paris. Good communication and very accommodating. I’d recommend them.
My flat was as clean as when i left, very kind guys
Appartement nickel en revenant, super sympa, bref je les recommande totalement

Justin´s wife Teresa and their two kids stayed at my apartment in Copenhagen for 4 nights. They were very easy to communicate with and easy going. They left the place in good condition so Justin and his family comes highly recommended.
It was a pleasure to meet Justin and Tracy. They are extremely personable and took great care of the apartment. They left our place so tidy...and we even came home to beautiful spring flowers! Thanks!
