CENTRAL A/C: Normally A/C is not needed in Vancouver. However, in the unlikely event of hitting a heat wave during your stay, please use the A/C (or heat) responsibly and turn off all when you leave the unit If you run the A/C 24/7, there is a good chance that it will freeze over and you'll be without A/C till we can get a technician in to resolve the situation. Should this happen, you can use the 2 small fans provided. We'll do all possible to keep the central A/C in good working condition, but cannot help having technical failure, and no refunds will be offered in case of A/C failure during your stay.

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 West End

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, North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park, Coal Harbour vistas, and the stars all at the same time. I feel blessed to have found both in my place; I couldn't be happier here :)

What makes this Condo unique

Incredible views combined with the convenience of central location, bus stop right in front of the building, excellent restaurants right out of the door, famous Robson Street shopping around the corner, a walking store of 100, makes my place travelers' paradise.

Short walk to Stanley Park and Canada Place, we found the location outstanding. Then there is the view, overlooking the park, the bay, the mountains, stunning. I will be back sometime and will stay here. Aysha was a pleasure to meet and showed us around the place. 5 stars all the way

We have visited Vancouver a number of times, and this was by far our favourite accommodation - the convenient location, the well-stocked kitchen with everything you need, the comfortable beds, and the absolute perfect condition of the condo made our trip that much better. Checking in and out was seamless and gracious. Thanks for a memorable stay!
