Floating above the living room & kitchen is the open concept mezzanine loft bedroom with queen sized bed & brand new hotel quality pillow-top queen mattress that sleeps 2 people. The living room has hardwood floors, cozy area rugs & a slate accented gas fireplace, stylishly furnished with mid-century modern and contemporary furniture including a comfortable Eames chair & ottoman plus a Bauhaus style sofa bed that folds down to sleep 2 extra people (double size). A desk with comfy swivel chair, desk lamp & powerbar provide you an office space and charging station for your lap top, cell phone and electronics.


In the kitchen: granite counters, glass mosaic tiles, slate floors with black appliances including ice dispensing fridge, stove/oven, microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, blender, slow cooker, crock pot, popcorn maker, a dishwasher & granite top prep island. Relish the northern mountain view from the dining table that seats 4 people. Our modern kitchen is stocked with all your cooking essentials (A Vitamix blender is available for rent if you can’t live without one – your host happens to be a Vitamix Sales Rep). In-suite washer & dryer, white subway tile bathtub/shower with granite counter & slate floors in the bathroom.

Enjoy the massive roof top terrace just outside your front door with your own private patio furniture (seats 8 people) for outdoor dining, suntan in our reclining lounge chairs or make friends with our lovely neighbours at the communal picnic tables at the other end of the roof deck, get your grill on with 2 gas BBQs but most of all… fall in love with our stunning view of snow-capped mountains & the metropolis of the city just minutes away, watch the crimson sunset or sunrise on our beautiful city.

The neighbourhood:

Located in the False Creek Flats, you are within walking distance of: our rapid transit system - Main Street-Science World Skytrain Station (3 blocks away), Olympic Village Square (4 blocks away, complete with waterfront promenade, public plaza, grocery supermarket, restaurants, brew pub/tap room, bakery & coffee shop, pet store, walk-in clinic, dry cleaning, bank, food trucks & boat rentals), hipster Mount Pleasant, bohemian Strathcona, colourful Chinatown, trendy Yaletown, SoMa Art District, Fairview Heights & a short taxi-ride or 30 minute walk into Downtown Vancouver’s vibrant shopping & financial district. Take the colourful and cute Aquabus up and down False Creek and watch the kayaks and dragon boats, or enjoy a 30min walk along Vancouver’s famous picturesque seawall that will take you to Granville Island Public Markets where you can shop for fresh local food & unique artisan crafts, then gawk at yachts, boathouses and Emily Carr art students on campus. Or take bicycles further along the relaxed seawall route to the beaches of Kitsilano, English Bay or Stanley Park, voted the #1 Urban Park in the world. Our penthouse is located ideally for a walking or biking tour of many local breweries & restaurants plus hundreds of tourist attractions. Adults and children can be entertained rain or shine, being closely situated to major venues for sporting events, trade shows and concerts at Canada Place Conference Center, BC Place Stadium or Rogers Arena, Science World & i-max theatre, the Vancouver Aquarium, golf courses, Stanley Park, pitch & putt, Queen Elizabeth Park’s frisbee golf, tennis courts, floral tropical conservatory & botanical gardens, Capilano fish hatchery & suspension bridge, world class ski, snowboard & cross country mountains such as Grouse, Cypress, Seymour & Whistler Blackcomb.

Optional extras:

Free street parking or a secure underground parking spot is available for an additional cost. Book for a week and get underground parking for free. We have a couple of extra bikes for rent as well if you want to take a culinary or craft beer tour of our diverse city.

Getting here from the airport, a taxi door to door in 21 minutes or take public transport via skytrain to Olympic Village Station & a short bus-ride all within 35 minutes.

If you are an artist, business person or vendor, the building has a gallery space/amenities room with washroom that can be rented depending on availability. It is ideal for an art exhibit, pop-up shop or sample sale, business meetings or presentation pitches (2 long tables and a dozen chairs provided). A separate refundable damage deposit and daily rental rate is applicable for use of this gallery space. Bookings must be made well in advance.

Notes & Policies:

• The communal side of the roof deck is also getting new benches, picnic tables & covered gazebos for shade over the BBQs so some of the roof deck photos will be updated soon, your personal patio space in front of the suite is still the same.
• This is strictly a non-smoking suite. You're most welcome to smoke outside on the roof deck with the door to the suite closed. Please be respectful of other neighbours who may have their doors open. Smoking inside the suite may result in loss of your damage deposit.
• Children are welcome. Some games are provided.
• Small house-trained pets are considered with a nominal fee. ($10/day for small non-shedding dogs, $15/day for all other dogs)
• We appreciate you kindly advise who will be staying with you, maximum 4 overnight guests. No unregistered overnight guests however a small quiet gathering to entertain some friends for a few hours is welcome (ie. a roof deck BBQ or cocktail party for 8 people max), after all our panoramic mountain & city views are something to brag about.
• Check-in from 4pm-7pm, Check-out by 11am promptly. Arrivals or departures outside of these times require advanced special arrangements, subject to availability and are subject to an additional charge if really late. Having said that we are flexible, kindly discuss with me in advance.
• Additional housekeeping services can be arranged for an extra cost.
• The street accessed lobby, elevator, roof deck patio and main floor of the suite (kitchen/dining room and living room with sofa-bed) are wheelchair accessible; however, the main bedroom with queen bed is only accessible by stairs and the bathroom is not ideal for wheelchairs. There is a handrail only on one side of the stairs to mezzanine; the other side is open therefore young children must be supervised at all times.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Your accommodating hosts are adventurous world travelers, active in recreational sports, hiking, camping, cycling & yoga, a couple of “foodies” and knowledgeable about the craft beer scene in Vancouver, so suggestions of where to go, what to do, see, eat & drink are abundant with our informative welcome book, chalked full of maps & pamphlets for local attractions. If you want a home-cooked meal delivered to your door, your host can arrange anything from simple breakfasts, packed lunches or 3 course dinners with 2-3 days advanced notice. Please request menus, prices will vary on seasonal availability. Jenn & David live in the same building so if you need any assistance, they are close by to offer any help or suggestions to make your Vancouver vacation an awesome experience.

Why the Owner Chose Strathcona, Vancouver, BC, Canada:
My husband has owned in this amazing building for a dozen years now & he didn't want to leave. I wanted my own place close by and voila the chance came for me to buy my own. Situated so central to every cool part of the city, you are within a few minutes walk of everything you could possibly need. The space has impressive high ceilings and the most spectacular views of the mountains & city.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When people visit for the first time they walk out of the elevator onto the roof and say, 'Wow! I didn't know places like this exist in Vancouver.' This property has the best roof deck patio with panoramic views of the mountains & downtown Vancouver. Imagine watching the incredible sunsets over the urban skyline and the sunrise over the mountains... well you can do that everyday from the comfort of your own patio furniture right outside your front door. Originally an artist live/work studio, the suite was recently renovated into a stylish open concept loft with 20 foot ceilings, high reaching windows and a bedroom mezzanine above. The furniture is a chic mix of mid-century & modern. Great for a photo shoot or romantic getaway.
