About the Property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Fresco Suite offers the best of Vancouver urban life... a cozy home in a quiet neighbourhood by the sea, yet only a few minutes walk to the downtown core. This charming, heritage, ground level 275 sq. ft. studio apartment is in the heart of the leafy West End, one of Vancouver’s most sought after urban neighbourhoods. The suite is ideally suited to the single traveller, or a couple. For women travelling alone, it is a safe, welcoming and secure environment.

The studio is in an award-winning, lovingly restored 1920's heritage building on a tree-lined street centrally located within easy walking distance to downtown Vancouver. It is also only a short walk to Stanley Park and its famous 10 km. seawall, several beautiful beaches, a host of fine restaurants, cafes, and shops, including Robson Street, a premiere shopping street.

It is quiet, elegantly appointed, cozy and full of character, reflecting a European style, with hardwood floors, a custom-built queen-sized wall bed, wool duvet and cotton bed linens, a well supplied kitchenette, and a classic bathroom with a large cast iron, claw-footed bathtub and hand held shower unit. Wifi is available in the suite, and use of a small gym in the building can be arranged. It also offers a water filtration system and full recycling.

Grocery shops, green-grocers, dry-cleaners, pharmacies, bakeries, coffee shops, hardware stores, many small boutiques, an international mix of bistros and restaurants, as well as convenient city bus routes, are all nearby.
