The apartment is conveniently located, clean and quite spacious. However, the windows do not open, which results in all air circulation being through the air conditioner unit- not very comfortable. Both the windows look at walls. The light wells, which open to a skylight, bring light to the apartment but the space is still quite dark.
Katie was pleasant to deal with but she was hard to reach by email to coordinate the key pick-up (all worked out after I contacted her by telephone). Unfortunately the apartment only has one key, which can be difficult with multiple travelers.
The bed has a soft mattress and gave one of us neck pain and the other, back pain. We later found the sofa bed was more comfortable than the bed in the bedroom.
The three of us were not comfortable that the windows did not open. The third person did not want to stay in the space and found other accommodation for the whole length of their stay. Katie did not want to address this matter directly with us and we had to go through a lengthy back and forth with Airbnb as the mediator. The matter was resolved by refunding the third person cost, but I believe it could have been quickly settled if we worked together to address the issue- not through a third party.
If you are not fussed with views, or not being able to open windows, this is a great apartment. It is clean and in a great location in the city. We were a bit surprised that no one ever mentioned the above issues in any of the reviews.
Great location next to GasTown. Apartment was as specified. Spacious for our needs; great for cooking to save us some money during our 4-night stay. Access to the building was easy.
Spotless, lovely place in a secure building with nice amenities, minutes walk from the water and the best of downtown Vancouver. It couldn't really be better!
This is a clean, comfortable, modern apartment that boasts a breathtaking view. Katie was very gracious and made me feel very welcome.
Katie made staying with AirBnB a breeze. We had a perfect central location with a cute space to call our own for a few days. The place was clean, safe and secure. The neighbors were all friendly.
This place is perfect for the busy adventuring couple, up at six am so we could head out in any direction and be in an awesome neighborhood or venue. It was two very easy hops on the skytrain from the airport. Thanks for the great space!
Really great location, spacious apartment and good value. Love that there's shampoo and conditioner as I always forget that. Would definitely book again. Cheers!
Great apartment, location, and view. We loved our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer. The parking space was the cherry on top of a great stay. While I did not meet Katie in person, she gave very clear directions on how to access the apartment.
Great location. Clean, nice windows and light and a wonderful fireplace. Nice building in general.
Katie's place was in the center so the location was great. She was always available as well so good communication. Thanks, Katie.
Katie's rental was very nice and clean with a great view of downtown which was certainly a highlight of the rental. Location was great as several restaurants who could accommodate our vegetarian/gluten-free/allergic diets were within walking distance (like a quick breakfast at SMAK), and the waterfront is right down the street also. During our stay we needed an extra towel and Katie was quick to communicate and got us what we needed in a timely fashion. I would certainly recommend her rental to future airbnb renters and would stay again.
Katie is a very chill guest to host.
Great guest, very kind.
Katie was took good care of space and independently checked in and out rather smoothly ... communication was great. Thanks again Katie.
Katie`s boyfriend Steve and his colleague stayed at our beautiful 2 Bedroom condo. It was a huge pleasure to host another host. Great gentlemen. Would 100% recommend Steve to other hosts.
I did not meet Katie personally. She and her friends seemed to enjoy the Lazy Bowen Hideaway and posted a great photo of breakfast tagging us on our Facebook page. We hope they enjoyed our new kitchen, dishwasher, and new appliances.
Katie and her friend were delightful guests. They are AirBnB hosts and went to the Airbnb Open with me. I highly recommend Katie and would be happy to host her again!
It was a pleasure having the two of you here as guests at InnSpire. I hope you enjoyed your dinner at the floating restaurant that we recommended.
I look forward to seeing you again when you can stay a little longer and enjoy the many activities that the Sunshine Coast has to offer as well as the best place to find oysters.
I was not able to meet them in person but Kate & Steve were easy to communicate with & organize key exchange. House was left spotless. It was a pleasure to have them.
Merci Kate de ton excellente communication et d'avoir laissé mon appartement dans un état impeccable!
Great guest. Would welcome back again. Nice people.
I met Katie one day at a coffee shop, and we shared our AirBnB stories. She struck me as someone very passionate about what AirBnB can do for the traveller on a budget. She's been working hard to set up a business for it, which is great for the ecosystem! I would stay at her place for sure.
