About Branden Smith

Raised in Vancouver, I own a Real Estate Office conveniently located across the street from this rental. I've been a Realtor for 12 years and I am extensive traveler - I want all my guests to fully experience what Vancouver has to offer! My residence is in the same area and I have lived downtown Vancouver for over 22 years, I am happy to help you find all the hidden gems Vancouver has to offer.

Branden Smith purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Branden Smith chose Gastown-Chinatown

Going to a sporting event (Hockey, Football, Soccer, World Cup)? or to a Concert? or a Trade show? This condo is a few steps away from Rogers Arena & BC Place - parking is included! Conveniently located between Gastown and Yaletown, easy to get everywhere Downtown. The property also faces the park which is quite, enjoy a glass of wine on your private patio and keep warm with the fire-pit, maybe roast some marshmellows?

What makes this apartment unique

Private patio! Close to Rogers Arena & BC Place if you're staying to watch a sporting event or concert, just steps away. Skytrain is a block away as well, easy to get to and close to everything Vancouver has to offer!

Smaller than expected, but clean and better than a hotel

  • 4 of 5

Branden was a helpful host, immediately accessible via phone and text when we had issues, which only occurred when we arrived and the code on the condo door wasn't working. Within literally 1 minute he was remotely able to set a new code.

As always, professional photos of indoor spaces always make them appear larger than in reality. The condo was smaller than we had anticipated, most problematic in the bedroom where there is very little space to walk between the bed and the wall & dresser. The garage parking spot - between two pillars - is also quite small, and it took some careful maneuvering to ensure that we didn't scratch up our rental car (thank goodness we didn't upgrade to a larger vehicle!). The only other negatives I noticed were purely cosmetic; the walls appeared to be in between paint jobs, as there were many spackled spots in the living room and bedroom. Most importantly, everything was functional and clean in the condo, and we really appreciated having a washer and dryer available to use. I cannot comment on the fireplace on the deck (again, a much smaller space than we expected) as it was raining every night we were visiting.

Suggestion for the owner: Include written instructions in the condo for how to lock the condo door when leaving (using Lockstate button), how to use the Keurig coffeemaker, and update the instructions to include the correct checkout time (the VRBO emails I received conflicted with the written instructions in the condo). Might be helpful to have a note also about the shower (hot & cold are flip-flopped).

(A word of caution regarding the location of this condo: The condo itself seemed to be in a safe, quiet area, and the building seemed to be entirely secure. However, walking from the condo to and from Gastown at night, we found ourselves walking through some borderline-sketchy areas due to drunk and disruptive people who appeared homeless. I would not have felt comfortable walking in these areas alone. Of course there is nothing that VRBO can do about this, I just wished that I had this information before choosing this condo.)

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great and had everything we needed. We were able to walk to everything and our son loved the playground next door. The pool/spa/sauna were very nice, but the gym was very small and a lot of the equipment was in bad shape.

Perfect. Close to everything we needed. Beautiful view of the park.

  • 5 of 5

Zero complaints here. I do come from a smaller city so getting use to the sirens all day/night took a couple days to adjust.

The accommodations were perfect as was the host Branden.

This is the greatest location ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my husband, daughter and I on our college tour. Location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to everything and an easy drive to UBC and Simon Fraser campuses. Brendan was very helpful and readily available. The only problem that we had was the porch heater wasn't working. It would have been nice to sit outside with the warmth of the heater. I never tried the gas fire pit. Those were definite selling points from photos.
