Please note that TripAdvisor became very greedy and is now adding very unreasonable charge of almost additional 20% of my rates. I suggest finding my listing at one of other popular Vacation Rental websites and contacting me from there. This spacious apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows and 25th floor views of Vancouver is your best alternative to a 5 star hotel accommodation. This accommodation is Air-Conditioned which is a rarity among Vancouver apartments. There is one King-Size Bed in one bedroom, and one Queen-Size Bed in the other bedroom. In addition, in the very large living room, you will find one Double (Full) Size Wall-Bed and one very comfortable Queen Size American Leather Sofa-Bed. Browse the attached photographs to see the beds configuration.

With unbeatable location between trendy Yaletown -- a converted warehouse district with an energetic bar and gourmet restaurant scene, and funky West End -- a mixture of international casual dining restaurants and eclectic boutiques, with a walking distance to most tourist attraction of the city, this is possibly your best choice of Vancouver short term accommodation. Read the reviews of past tenants to see what they thought of the apartment, its location, and the service that they received. Please contact Jan for detailed information about availability, pricing and your special needs. PLEASE NOTE: Quoted rates are for a party of up to 6 people. You will be charged additional $30 per night for each additional person.More

Loved staying at this condo. The location was great, but the views and sunset are what made this memorable. It was very clean and well equipped. Secure parking and washer dryer were big pluses.

We did arrive late as our flight was delayed. After contacting Jan upon arrival, he showed us where to park our minivan and showed us the unit we'd be staying in for 3 days. As we had a corner unit, the floor to ceiling windows...More
