Great location, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at this condo, the location is very convenient and you can walk to most places. I did rent a car, but there are a number of days that I just walked around town including walking to English Bay for the fireworks. The condo is clean, and very well equipped in the kitchen which was important for me as I regularly cooked for my little one. Anniemarie was always responsive and I highly recommend this one room condo.

Great Location, Beautiful Condo

  • 4 of 5

This review is overdue as we stayed in this Condo last April (from April 24th to May 23rd 2014).

Firstly the host was very accommodating as we reserved the condo last minute. The Condo itself is in an excellent location right opposite the Stadium/ChinaTown Skytrain station. Supermarket and coffee shops are within a one minute walking distance. The Waterfront and Downtown areas of Vancouver are an easy 15 minute walk or just hop on the SkyTrain.

The Condo is ideal for a couple or girls getaway. It is equipped with everything one would need. Fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, extra linen, towels, hair-dryer. The building itself is very secure with fob access for the front door and lift.

We would highly recommend this Condo

to anyone visiting Vancouver.

It's a Gem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I would not be able to write enough wonderful things about this lovely condo. The location is absolutely fabulous. ANYTHING you need is located within a short walking distance. The train station, coffee shop and the grocery store are right across the street. Costco is just around the corner. A very short walk to China town. And of course the view is gorgeous. What a treat to wake up to the view of the mountains, water and the beautiful city. We enjoyed having coffee on the balcony watching the cruise ships come in. The Condo is decorated very chic and very, very clean. We CAN NOT wait to return to Vancouver and when we do, we will stay at this lovely place. We have also given the information to all of our friends.

An enjoyable stay in downtown Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We are just wrapping up a 2 month stay in Sankofa Condo and cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation. The apartment has everything you need for an enjoyable stay within walking distance to supermarket,pharmacy, Costco, starbucks, movie theatre, stage theatre,science centre, sports venues (Canuck and Lions), Skytrain station right across the street, access to Granville Is. via Yaletown aquabus, restaurants's all very close by or easily accessible by transit. Cable TV and internet are provided.

We are pleased to know that a portion of our rent is going to the Sankofa Foundation to help orphaned children in Ghana, West Africa and villages there acquire the tools to help themselves.

The photo's are spot on as to what you get and Annemarie was always available to help out and answer questions that came up. The building is secure with access done by FOB as well as to your floor. So, no need to worry about strangers lurking in the hallway, only your neighbours.

The view from the windows looks North. In the distance you see the Steamworkers building then the shipyards with the overseas ships being loaded/unloaded and further over the harbour there is the Londsdale area.

If you are arriving by air to YVR you can actually jump on the Canada line to Waterfront Station then onto the skytrain to Stadium/Chinatown and your basically at the front door !!!

Would recommend this property for family, friends and I know we will definitely be back again.
