Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location in the heart of downtown - easily walkable to many restaurants, bars, etc and very close to many bus stops. Jorge was so kind and welcoming; upon our arrival he showed us a map of Vancouver and directed us to spots we should see and to things we should do. The condo is well maintained, comfortable, and spacious (there were 2 of us staying - one in the loft and one in the bedroom). There were plenty of towels and extra linens, and the beds were comfortable. We also appreciated having access to the laundry room on the same floor as the condo after we hiked the Grouse Grind. It was a great VRBO experience! Thanks Jorge!

Great value and location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great apartment to stay in. The owners were very helpful for our check-in and out. The apartment had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean and comfortable.

The stairs up to the loft bed are a. It steep so make sure if you're staying there you can handle the climb! The apartment gets a bit hot, but there was AC to combat that.

The location is ideal. We were able to walk to Granville island, and the sea walk. Also close to a ton of restaurants, markets, coffee shops, anything really!

We would stay here again.

Cozy, convenient, with fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean, well-supplied, and situated in the heart of the city. Jorge offered to meet us a little early and welcomed us warmly. He was helpful in providing a city map and sightseeing recommendations. There was plenty of room for three of us (since we were willing and able to climb stairs to reach the loft bed). The inside temp was fine in April as long as the shades stayed closed in the afternoon. I would stay there again--it had so much more character than a hotel.

Fun stay in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at Jorge's great condo. He met us at the unit and helped us locate grocery stores, restaurants, and attractions on the map. His suggestions were very helpful. The condo is centrally located and convenient to public transportation which we used. The bus drivers were very patient and friendly in directing us to our destinations. We hiked several blocks to a bike rental shop and had a glorious, sunny day biking around Stanly Park. One of our highlights was a bus, day trip to the University of British Columbia's Anthropology Museum. It has one of the world's best collections of Northwest Native art. Thanks Jorge.
