Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I am an artist who has lived and worked in Vancouver for over 30 years now. Along with working as an artist I am managing this property for my friend Bibi who lives in California. She furnished this suite as her home away from home for when she comes to Vancouver. It is our hope that you will find your home away from home in one of the greatest cities in the world!

Why Strathcona:
Bibi chose this property for the location and also because of it's 'green' standards. She loves the community feeling that is part of Strathcona and also it's proximity to all the great, fun spots nearby. Downtown, Chinatown, Gastown and the Commercial Drive area are all literally within a short walk away. The Skytrain is just down the street and aside from being situated on a major bike route the bus direct to downtown is just around the corner, if you decide not to walk. Car to Go is always an option as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Strathcona is unique in it's community vibe, there is a very safe , family friendly thing going on here. From the small cafes to the two family owned markets just down the street you'll feel right at home in no time. The condo is situated on a bike route to the city and you can relax after your day watching the commuters whiz by while enjoying a glass of wine on the patio.
