Why Gerry chose Downtown
Our friends and family love coming to stay here. The location is perfect, and when you compare the price to Vancouver hotels (or other Home Away properties), the Spectrum is the perfect choice.

Ideal vacation property
Great apartment, everything you could want for your stay, all in excellent condition. Good location bars and restaurants in walking distance and the metro station 100 metres over the road.
I had a great stay in this little apartment in the sky, the unit had everything I needed and the neighbourhood is one of my favorites in Vancouver. Check in/out was easy, and I loved watching the sunset behind the mountains at night. It was surprisingly loud with the windows open, even so high up, but it didn’t bother my sleep at all- the bed is very comfortable.
The unit is a great location for exploring Vancouver! It is near Yaletown, Gastown and right outside the Stadium-Chinatown Skytrain station. Great views from the floor to ceiling windows also. It has all the conveniences you would need in the kitchen. The parking spot is very helpful--it would be very difficult to park on the street in this area.
Wonderful location, extremely well stocked with everything you would need. The owner was fabulous to work with ! The apartment has wonderful views. We could watch the cruise ships come and go. It was nice to have a patio to enjoy the views. Great place and hope we can come back!
Great location next to sky-train. Gerry was very helpful above and beyond what would be expected. Condo was as advertised. Nearest grocery store a couple of blocks away so we didn't need a car. Would stay there again.

Great Condo in Downtown Vancouver
This condo is wonderfully located for every imaginable activity in Vancouver and has fabulous city and mountain views (from the 22nd floor of this building). The owners have appointed it very nicely and stocked it with everything a visitor could possibly want, from bottled and Brita water to Keurig and French press coffee makers, an electric kettle, lots of cutlery, tons of new towels, etc. They also provide basic provisions (tea, coffee, water, detergents, cleaning materials....). The bed is comfortable, as are all the furnishings. And, in a building around the corner there are adequate gym facilities and a nice pool. Lots of great restaurants are within easy walking distance. Costco is literally around the corner. The T&T supermarket, which has a delightfully Asian flair, is a five minute walk away, as is a wine and liquor store. Nearby coffee houses abound. The Skytrain station is just across the street. In short, everything is highly convenient. As an aside, I might mention that Vancouver drinking water from the tap is some of the best in the world. Bring your refillable bottle.
The owner, Gerry, was immediately responsive to all our queries, both before and during the stay.
Our only dissatisfactions result from issues the owners can't really address. There for two weeks (nearly), during half of our stay one of the two elevators in the building was out of service. So, waits were fairly long. Taking the trash and recycling down to the basement is a small challenge, as well. Also, at least two of the windows in the condo cannot be fully closed. So, there is a good deal of noise from the street. If you are a light or late sleeper, I would seriously recommend ear plugs and a sleep mask.
Steps away from all major sport and entertainment venues (BC Place, Rogers Arena, QE Theatre, The Centre for Performing Arts, Vogue, Orpheum & Van Library. Historic Gastown is 5 a minute walk to the north and trendy Yaletown is a 7 minute walk to the south. Location! Location! Location!
