Testimonial: 'I was very pleasantly surprised. When I saw the pics of the view on your site I expected that they made the view look much better than it is. I was not prepared for how much better it turned out to be. I really enjoyed lying on the couch watching the boats come and go from False Creek. The location in relation to the rest of the city could not be better. Everything I needed was within a short walking distance. Half a block to the seawall, with a real beach within another block or two--it doesn't get any better than that. The condo itself was nicely furnished, clean and well-maintained. Everything worked, the kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils, etc. You should be hearing from me again!' SF, Virginia

Testimonial: 'Frankly, I don't think anything could be better..we even walked past some of the other places we'd considered in different neighborhoods and this one and always said, 'our place is better!' I usually have trouble sleeping and the bed combined with the breeze and the city sounds had me sleeping better than I have in years!' SB, Texas

Testimonial: 'We had a terrific time in Vancouver and really enjoyed staying in your lovely apartment. Now back in London, I am really missing your Vancouver view. We kept watch on the neighbourhood heron with the excellent binoculars. We would certainly return to your condo.' ES, UK

Testimonial: 'Now that we are back in Maine, reliving the wonderful memories we created over the past week, we wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your Vancouver condo. It served as the perfect 'home base' for us. The central location was very convenient, particularly with easy access to public transportation. The information you provided helped us patronize some of your neighborhood businesses and the view was a bonus!' NM, Maine

Testimonial: 'We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your apartment - the location, views and apartment itself are all fantastic. Thank you for sharing your Vancouver home with us. There is a very strong chance that we will be visiting Vancouver next summer and hope that we will be able to book with you again.' AM, Australia

Testimonial: 'We loved Vancouver, just as you said we would, and it was all the more delightful due to the comfort and homely feel of your condo; we are very envious of you!! It was so nice of you to leave a bottle of wine which we enjoyed and so thoughtful to place the flowers for our arrival.' JI, UK

Testimonial: "We have stayed in many VRBOs over the years, and your condo is definitely in the top 1%. One of the reasons we select VRBO is because it gives us the option of dining in or out and a feeling of home. Your condo has everything on our wish list. It is always nice when there is a full set of cookware (great quality), dishes, and storage containers. As far as suggestions for making the condo more accommodating, we have none. It is very well appointed and decorated. It has given us a wonderful two weeks. It is obvious this is your home away from home, and we greatly appreciate the fact that you have opened it to us for this visit. We hope to return at some future date."

Why Harvey Stone chose Vancouver

We live in a rural area in the US and have always seen Vancouver as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This is our second home and is short distance away from our primary home but a world away.

What makes this condo unique

The West End is spectacularly beautiful with easy access to the entire city. The city is very cosmopolitan with especially a strong Asian community. We bike everyday we are here, either around Stanley Park or around the Sea Wall to either Coal Harbor or around False Creek or up to UBC. A great place to visit.

Great rental and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this great rental in Vancouver. We arrived several hours before check in and the owner helped us out by letting us leave our luggage at the unit while the cleaning lady was prepping for our arrival . It was located right near Stanley Park and had wonderful views from the patio. The unit was well equipped and had a few fans and some outdoor chairs as well. The bed was very comfortable as well. We would definetly rent through Harvey again.

Terrific little place.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this condo. The bed was comfortable, the views were nice. The location was stallar, (we walked the entire downtown/Olympic Village/Granville Island area). Plus, the owners have taken the time to review every attraction/restaurant in the area. Very nice!

Superb VIEW condo at fantastic price in HEART of CITY

  • 5 of 5

This place is a traveler's dream. The location is just minutes from Stanley Park and the Unit looks directly out to the water. The condo was immaculate and contained ALL items needed in the kitchen and bath. There is a parking spot in garage which is a true bonus in this busy city with limited parking. Owners were receptive and helpful. They provide a recreation guide complete with restaurants and sights to see. We could not ask for more. We will definitely be coming back here rather than paying 4X as much in a hotel room.

Great Apartment! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is very clean and comfortable with everything you need plus stunning views of English Bay - so nice to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset. It is also very well situated. We walked everywhere but bus transit and ferry options were also close by. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Time in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Comfortable and within easy distance to so many sites. Proximity to the bus line was an added feature of the location. We would definitely recommend this condo in the West End of Vancouver to anyone else who wants to spend some time in a wonderful city.
