Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy the best views Vancouver has to offer while surrounding yourself with style and luxury. Located on the 33rd floor in the heart of downtown Vancouver and Yaletown, this penthouse suite offers stunning views from every room.

Featuring over 1400 sq ft of indoor/outdoor living space, this impressive condo boasts top of the line features and designer finishes. From the European style kitchen with stainless appliances and limestone countertops, to the luxurious master bath with double sinks, enclosed glass shower and deep soaker tub, you will enjoy nothing but the best.

Follow the marble staircase up the two flights of stairs to the spectacular private roof top deck. From here you can enjoy the stunning sunsets and a prime view to Vancouver's annual 'Festival of Light' fireworks competition without the crowds on your comfortable and private roof top deck.

Expansive floor to ceiling glass windows showcase the sweeping views of English Bay and spectacular seaside sunsets. Conveniently located and only steps away from internationally acclaimed cuisine and culture.

The building has an exercise facility equipped with stationary bikes, treadmills, elliptical machines and weight circuit. In the summer months there is also an outdoor lap pool that is open for a swim or for a dip to cool off. A secure, underground parking spot is provided during your stay should you be traveling with a vehicle.

Located in the most central area of downtown Vancouver at the intersection of Seymour Street and Davie Street, the location is unbeatable for convenience. A 5 minute walk and you are in the heart of Yaletown, a converted warehouse district with an energetic bar and gourmet restaurant scene. Go 10 minutes west and you are in the heart of the West End and Davie Street. Here you will find a melange of international casual dining restaurants and eclectic boutiques. Davie street is home to well over a dozen Asian fusion and sushi restaurants, with prices so good you will become a regular of your favorite spot in no time!

If you are interested in art and theater, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Orpheum Theater (home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra) are both a 10 minute walk away. If you tire of walking, a 'must do' is a quick 10 minute trip on the Aquabus, a foot passenger ferry that crosses False Creek to Granville Island. This is a heritage site of old industrial buildings which now houses a bustling market of fresh and prepared food, local artisans, and an always changing array of street performers. This is also home to the Arts Club Theater, Vancouver's professional live theater group. With productions that range from musicals, to contemporary comedies and classics, a night here is sure to be memorable.

For those visiting during the ski season, there are three local ski hills that you can reach by car in 30 minutes. Whistler mountain, an international ski resort is a less than 2hr drive up the scenic sea to sky highway and is spectacular to visit anytime of year.

Vancouver is a fantastic city to explore on foot, and the Skybox penthouse suite offers you a perch in the city and place to relax and enjoy the stunning views. Public transportation stops right across the street from building entrance and the Canada Line Yaletown/Roundhouse station is four blocks away if you choose to arrive to from the airport this way.

About The Owner

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Central and Downtown Vancouver

The location couldn't be better for exploring the best of what Vancouver has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Walking through the door and taking in the spectacular view will leave you speechless. Floor to ceiling glass gives you unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean while being nestled amongst the city skyline line.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We travel to Vancouver about three times a year. We were very happy to once again stay at The Skybox. This apartment is just great and a very cool spot to launch forays into the very hip Vancouver scene. The Vancity Theater is connected to the building where foreign and independent films are shown. We happened to catch the tail end of the Vancouver International Film Festival. What a cool thing to have so close to the apartment. The apartment has a very stylish interior, great contemporary kitchen. We cooked breakfast every morning but with all the fantastic restaurants within easy walking distance we always had dinner out. From fine dining to authentic, tasty and cheap ethnic foods, its all there.



One thing we do appreciate in rentals is a kitchen stocked with a few essentials like Olive oil and a few spices. The Skybox had that and a lot more. We have stayed in rentals that had absolutely nothing in the kitchen. You really don't want to purchase olive oil, salt and spices if you are there for a just a little while.



One of the best features is the incredible view from the floor to ceiling windows. Even if it was a rainy day and we wanted to stay close to home we weren't missing out on some great scenery. The owner is very responsive to suggestions and after a mention on our last visit she quickly added some great reading lamps for the bedroom.



The upper deck is truly incredible. The view and all the greenery really make it a special spot, definitely plan to spend some time up there!

Everything we hoped for and more.

  • 5 of 5

The Skybox was exceptional and had all the little touches you would hope for in a holiday home and that is exactly what it felt like. All the small things were there, tea coffee, exactly what you need when you first arrive. Kelli was so, so accommodating in every respect and helped out whenever she could even letting us into the suite early as we had arrived early and only asked if there was anywhere to store our luggage while waiting to get the keys. She sorted it out so that we could have the apartment earlier - brilliant. What a way to end our holiday and thouroughly enjoyed staying at the Skybox. Would easily recommend this suite to anyone wanting that little bit of luxury. Thank you Kelli for all your help and especially the Skybox.

Incredible Vacation at the Skybox Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

The "Skybox Penthouse" in Vancouver was everything advertised and more! My husband and I enjoyed an incredible week of vacation in this lofty condo - it is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy magnificent views of the city and English Bay. The accommodations were luxurious and the multiple outside patios added the perfect extra touch. The condo was beautifully and comfortably decorated and was equipped with everything we needed. Thank you for the welcoming bottle of wine and flowers!

While the view from the living room and the rooftop patio had changed slightly from the online photos due to a large high rise building currently under construction, there was still plenty of incredible scenery to see and enjoy. We were able to experience the fireworks from Stanley Park celebrating Canada Day from the rooftop patio but the gorgeous sunsets are what will make us want to come back and stay here again and again. We planned our day's activities around being able to experience that impressive sunset every evening from the rooftop patio! Yaletown was the perfect location within the downtown area from which to to explore the rest of the city and there were many great restaurants right in the neighborhood. The sights and sounds of this vibrant city were all around us and we loved it. It was also incredibly easy to take the Canada Line train to and from the YVR airport to the Yaletown stop and walk just a few blocks to the apartment.

Thank you Kelli for sharing your lavish and impressive apartment with us. Thank you Angelica for giving us the welcome tour. We had an incredible vacation in Vancouver at the Skybox Penthouse and hope to return again soon!

Renter beware

  • 1 of 5

Whilst the location is great for Yaletwon, the constant screams, fights and police cars, pretty much all night long on Granville St was disturbing to say the least. The building itself was not great - someone must have thrown up in the elevator and the mess was there almost the entire day. Further, there were creepy guys loitering on the floor in the corridors most days. If you have your own car, beware, as someone parked in the designated spot, which meant we had to find a place on the street (not easy in the rain), until the car was towed. Apartment roof top patio was closed down for winter - not disclosed by the owner. Apartment itself was nice and well equipped.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised to see this review to say the least, when I spoke with you there was no mention of any issues. The suite was impeccable upon your arrival and the comment of 'creepy guys' seems rather questionable as our floor is only accessible by those who live on it, and all our neighbours are quite respectable people. There are three elevators in the building, perhaps you had bad luck with one. The night your making space was occupied my husband personally came down to have the vehicle removed, all which was done in much less than an hour. I would have appreciated it if you had mentioned your concerns to me when I called, instead you said thank you and that everything was ok.

We were very happy with our stay at the Skybox Penthouse. The views were amazing and the light and bright interior made it beautiful even on a rainy day.

Wonderful location for all things in Yaletown, easy arrival and departure , and nice work-out facility made it a wonderful experience.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from spending 8 glorious nights at Kelly's Skybox Penthouse. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in Vancouver, as we tied the knot there on a sailboat, under the annual celebration of lights fireworks, held out on the English Bay a decade ago. This year we were treated to the same spectacular three evenings of fireworks extravaganza from the jaw dropping Skybox rooftop deck !

Wow, what a fabulous luxury penthouse she has and as everyone else has previously exclaimed, the pictures just can’t capture the true awesome dwelling it is. Everything was perfect from our warm welcome from Angelica, that included fresh cut Lilies’s, to a bottle of excellent BC wine. We enjoyed incredible, comfortable weather with eight days of sunny skies and no precipitation.........a rarity in BC !

Our morning coffee with croissants savored on her outdoor patio decks and the every evening ending, lingering, magnificent sunsets from the private rooftop patio deck, while sipping a glass of wine, cannot be described adequately in words or pictures. What a mesmerizing experience it was to be a part of the vibrant city life below and watch the endless seagulls swirling beneath us and singing their sweet songs.

Thank you Kelly and Angelica for treating us to "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" if even for only a week !

Can’t wait to return again!

As good as the 35 years married we were celebrating

  • 5 of 5

This Penthouse was everything we would have hoped for and more .....

We have traveled a lot of the world and wanted to experience being tourists in our own town.

We planned to stay 4 nights and loved it so much, we stayed 5.

It started with a warm, friendly greeting with our host and a quick accent to the top, 33rd floor.

The view from the top balcony was spectacular .... that view lead you west on Davies to an almost unobstructed view of English Bay.

Great access to everything .... Yaletown, False Creek, Granville Island Market, Stanley Park, BC Place, Rogers Arena, shopping .....

We kayaked false creek, rented a jet ski & went to Doc Morgans on Bowen for lunch, walked over to T & T bought live crab & feasted,

biked around false creek, friends & family came in for dinner a couple of nights (West Oak & Brix n Mortar were awesome .... The Teahouse, not so much)

Excellent accommodation in the Top City in the World.

Thank you John & Kelly.

We will book this again !
