About Tammy

I truly believe that Vancouver is one of the best cities in the world. I love sharing that experience with people. I wish you a pleasant stay!

Tammy purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tammy chose East Side

The building is an architectural icon in a sea of sameness, where high design meets high value in South-East False Creek. Nothing else looks or feels like this. Not now. Not ever. The original Sky-bridge feature joins commercial to residential, rooted in place by a forest of stylized columns that ground and define the building. Structure becomes sculpture

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 3 month stay at The Central was excellent! The location of the apartment was great, as it was just minutes from the sky-train station. The apartment was beautifully decorated and well kept. Tammy was amazing and extremely mindful of our well-being, which we were very grateful for.

We would stay at the Central and work with Tammy again in a heartbeat!

Fantastic property

Perfect location, super clean place. All of the basics are there and the Terrace was so great. Location was great - five minute walk to the train station. Everything else is within a five minute walk as well.

The property is great and the owners even better! They are super helpful with local knowledge as well. The location is near everything you need....London Drugs Store, Urban fare, Liquor store and great restaurants. Also an awesome Irish pub with great home-style cooking is right next door! Thanks again!

Vancouver Luxury Condo

  • 5 of 5

This luxurious condo is appropriately called "The Central." It is perfectly cited for visiting any attraction in the city, plus it offers indoor parking, as parking per se is often an issue in Vancouver. The condo has an expansive terrace and a huge bar b que grill, if that is your penchant. Indoors offers a gourmet kitchen, lounging furnatue, and large bedrooms with comfortable beds. Both bedrooms open to the expansive outdoor patio, while one has an en suite bathroom with walk in shower. 4 persons may stay in the unit comfortably. There are restaurants, markets, breweries and gelato within walking distance. However, the premier experience is visiting Grandville Island Market for fish and groceries, only 15 minutes away, and returning to the condo to prepare your own culinary extravaganza. Owners Tammy and Sean will gladly assist you with any issues, but my party's experience indicates there will be no problems to ask about. I am definitely looking forward to staying here again. R.

Great condo from which to explore Vancouver and its environs

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by Amtrak from Seattle to continue our northwest vacation, with a 5 minute walk to the Center, where Tammy met us to let us in and show us the condo. It was just as described online. Spacious, well appointed with modern amenities, and a welcome bottle of wine. And a penthouse patio that could hold a party for a dozen, with a gas firepit to take the chill off the approaching fall evenings. What a way to start our stay. After settling in we walked to the Olympic Village neighborhood, locating the Urban Fare grocery store, Legacy Liquors and London Drugs pharmacy, and several restaurants and pubs near the Village Square. Seems we were set for anything we would need during our stay. Caught an early dinner at the Tap and Barrel and then walked the seawall towards Granville Island, enjoying the views of Yaletown and the False Creek shore.

With the False Creek water taxi stop right in the Village, and the Mainstreet Skytrain station within a 5 minute walk, we were all set to explore:

Granville Island with its shops and restaurants; Stanley Park for a bike ride and picnic; Downtown, Gastown and Chinatown for shopping, galleries, restaurants, pubs, and just plain sightseeing. We took the train downtown each day, did our thing, and then walked home, tired, but ready to enjoy a glass or two of wine on the patio, before starting all over the next day.

Thank you, Tammy, for sharing your condo with us. It was more than we expected and we look forward to our next vacation in Vancouver at your place.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. My kids appreciated the strong wifi and great patio to play on. The parking spot was scary at first but we parked a 7 seater without an issue. This will now always be our first choice when visiting Vancouver even over our usual suite at the four seasons.

Thx Tammy
