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 9 years and an extensive traveler - I want all my guests to fully experience what Vancouver has to offer! I currently live downtown Vancouver (over 18 years) and would be happy to help you find all the hidden gems this beautiful city has to offer.

Branden Smith purchased this condo in 2009

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 - you don't have to find parking (event parking is $35 in the area). Conveniently located between Gastown and Yaletown, easy to get anywhere downtown. The property also faces the Rooftop garden and it is on the quiter side of the building, enjoy a glass of wine on your private balcony and watch the sunsets.

Great location but value wasn't there

  • 3 of 5

The plusses were it's proximity to the waterfront, Costco, light rail and the train station, swimming pool and fitness center. Only 5-6 blocks to Gas Town. "Minuses" were the pliers left to turn on clothes dryer, the handles which kept falling off in the shower and broken closet rack and bureau drawer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying and your input, since then we have fixed all of the above including a small renovation to the ensuite washroom. There is no longer a joined shower. Each washroom has their own separate shower now.

Overall it's quite nice

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

--Super close to everything with a sky-train stop right outside the door

--Beds are comfy

--large TV has Netflix and other streaming services (Roku)

--wifi is fast and reliable

--there are lots of windows and light

--shampoo, conditioner, and soap are provided (as well as kitchen sponge, dishwasher detergent, and dish soap)

--it's very quiet if the windows are closed

--a starter set of coffee and sugar is provided

--Branden is very attentive and went out of his way to help us store our luggage before/after check-out

Cons:

--Heat can't be turned off (the building is set at a minimum temp that can't be adjusted), so even though it was the end of November, we had the windows open most of the time and it was still hot

--The bathtub doesn't hold water completely and will slowly/steadily drain while you soak (careful with the tub faucet -- the handle falls off easily)

--The kitchen has minimal supplies -- serving bowls/platters, salad tongs, and wooden spoons aren't available, but there are items like one mixing bowl, a frying pan, a pot, and simple dishes. Don't plan on baking (no measuring cups or a hand mixer, etc.).

Not good or bad, but notable:

--the two bathrooms share a shower. The shower has two glass doors in it (one entrance from each bathroom) -- the glass is frosted, but it's still a strange setup

--the coffee machine is a Keurig and requires K-cups

--there's garbage and compost bins, but no place for recycling

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying and your input, since then I have done a full inspection of the condo and fixed every issue including a small renovation to the ensuite washroom. There is no longer a joined shower. Each washroom has their own separate shower now. I'm glad you mentioned your concerns however, i also want to mention that we supply complimentary keurig k-cups for all of our guests, including sugar; In addition, I did a quick checklist and most of the cooking utensils you mentioned that are missing were in the kitchen. Thanks again for the feedback and I hope you stay again to see our improvements.

Perfect Stay in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here very much. We came to see a Canucks game and the location was very convenient for the game plus the other activities that we planned. We walked to Gastown for a foodie tour and discovered all sorts of new places to eat. The condo was perfect for a parent and a teenager. Two bedrooms allowed us to spread out and not be constantly in each other's way. Everything in the condo was clean and just as pictured. Getting in to the condo was no problem thanks to the excellent directions. It was nice to have secure parking and we took advantage of the pool. i would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic weekend in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for events at Rogers Stadium or BC Place, close to great places to eat, like the Black on Abbott street, or the Jam on Beatty, it is right next to the Expo line and a Costco. There are a variety of coffee shops within a minute of the front door. We walked ten minutes to the Plaza if Nations to ride the False Creek ferry to Granville Island to a show at Improv Centre, great show there. We were very happy with the service we received from the property manager Branden Smith. I would positively recommend staying here!!!

Nice view and well located

  • 4 of 5

Decent place .

Pretty well equipped kitchen.

A little complicated check-in and out, but understandable security concerns.

Could use a little more complete cleaning ( drapes, curtains, vent over the stove, for example).

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

Branden's apartment is conveniently located, comfortable and has everything one needs for a short or long stay in Vancouver. We walked to most places but were really happy to have the subway station just around the corner for getting back to the airport. Highly recommend!
