About Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin

Originally from Istanbul, Turkey. Educated in U.S. in Business Administration and MBA.

World traveller, having travelled to many countries for both business and pleasure. Living in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since 2006. Proud mother of two young adult daughters.

Retired and traveling the world while accommodating world travelers in my penthouse while I am away traveling :)

Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin chose Vancouver

When buying this property I had 2 main criteria above all:

1. Best LOCATION in downtown Vancouver where I could walk everywhere and be a part of this beautiful, vibrant city, any time of the day or night!

2. Have INCREDIBLE VIEWS to wake up to every morning and enjoy my coffee; as well as enjoying a drink in the evening while soaking in the twinkling city lights and the stars all at the same time.

I feel blessed to have found both in my place; I couldn't be happier here :)

Perfect place, fantastic location, spectacular city/harbor/mountain views!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have chosen a more beautiful place or better location. So easy to walk to excellent restaurants and shopping. Building is very secure in a super safe part of the city. Breka (open 24/7) on Robson and Bute is a great bakery to stop in and get a wonderful cup of coffee and a bite to eat before heading out to explore this fabulous city. Gina the owner and Aysha the property manager are very professional and incredibly easy to work with. Our highest recommendation.

Magic Time in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental. Our first time in Vancouver, we were fortunate to choose this condo. The views, location, and luxury amenities provided entertainment with sea planes taking off and landing, boats of all kinds moving on the water below, the snow-capped mountains and great balcony. We were excited during the entire trip. In a great spot, the condo has walking access to everything, and some of the best places are just a block away on Robson. We asked another couple to join us for this trip, and they were impressed by the property. The condo was comfortable for four. I hope to return and stay at this address sometime in the future.

Gorgeous view and fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

I just had the pleasure of enjoying this wonderful condo for the past week or so and I am already planning to stay again on my next trip to Vancouver. We were 2 adults and a 3-year old and there was plenty of space for us...especially in the living room which is a wonderful place to watch the sunrises from.

The space is modern, well maintained and nicely decorated. The host, Gina, was very welcoming and made us feel at home right away. My only regret is that I didn't have the chance to take Gina up on her offer of a Turkish meal...next time!

It is very centrally located with many options for restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, wine shops and of course just a couple of blocks away from the water front. We walked everywhere we went and although I was out for work we enjoyed Stanley Park, the art Gallery and walking along the seawall.

I highly recommend reaching out to Gina and staying here for your next trip to Vancouver!

Excellent location,view,complete amenities,and very clean

  • 5 of 5

Our two couples thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Buket's condo ! Awesome view from the 35th floor with ceiling to floor glass windows made for inspiring views day and night. Only minutes from the Harbour, it was perfect for daily walks along the sea wall. Restaurants were only minutes away walking distance for each evening. Bedrooms and bathrooms were fully furnished .Kitchen had all the amenities of home with appliances and dishware. This condo provided a relaxing,inspiring location to view the best of Vancouver. Buket was very gracious and warm in her hospitality,helping with any questions we had. We highly recommend this beautifully placed condo to truly enjoy a stay in Vancouver.
