“Unbelievable!” the word most used by guests on check in to this..
Hi! This is Steve and Mia and we grew up right here in Vancouver, BC. :) About Steve... I am the property owner and have been involved in real estate and other investments in spaces like cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, and machine intelligence. I love to read, meditate, and do extreme sports. About Mia... I’m the property manager and you’ll probably find me reading, meditating, and doing yoga - who doesn’t here?! I also love listening to classical music, going for a run along the beach, and watching movies (usually about robots and superheroes). Our top 3 favourite places to travel: 1.Mexico, 2.Hawaii, 3.San Francisco What we enjoy most about being Airbnb hosts is how we can best accommodate. It’s amazing when we see people’s jaws drop over how fantastic their stay was and how they were looked after. It’s all about the best here. Travelling is about adventuring, and there’s nothing more terrible for a trip than unpleasant accommodations! Because we travel a lot, we understand the importance of an incredible stay.

This place is absolutely amazing! Besides having the best view in the entire city, Josh was an excellent host and the place was very modern and exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend this this place!
Perfect place for an upscale weekend away
This was the perfect place for our mom’s weekend away. The location was within walking distance to some fabulous restaurants, and the view was incredible!! The unit itself was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Not to mention, the roof top hot tub was ideal.
False Advertising! Read ALL Reviews and believe warnings! Only thing Luxurious is location and view!
The only thing Luxury about this property is the View & over the top fee's. We were a group of four Professional women visiting to run a half Marathon. We decided to treat ourselves to "Luxury Accommodations"; we wish we read all of the reviews!
The location is convenient, view is spectacular and they had left treats upon arrival. Nice touches. But to quote a travelling comrade, it looked "like a 17 year old guy" had set it up.
There were no waste bins in 2 of the 3 bathrooms, we had to dig through a dishevelled closet to find linens for the fold out couch & each bathroom had one roll of TP. No paper or dish towels & we had minimal bath towels (4or5). The faucet in one shower fell off the wall, power outlet in upstairs bathroom did not work & no wifi upstairs. The beds are ok, but sub par (one was a murphy bed). The bedding was sort of worn. The place definitely needs some TLC & repair.
The hot tub was slimy with an unpleasant smell. They did send a cleaning crew the 1st day & we were told "there was nothing wrong" and "the staff had taken pictures". See previous reviews of people who had similar issue. The problem was resolved.
After voicing our concerns about what was lacking the first night, we came "home" to find packages of TP and Paper Towels on the dining table, extra towels & bedding. We finally received our waste bins day two, but the patio door was left wide open; weird. Manager also purchased a throw and some pillows for couch on the 2nd day which were nice, but not asked for. She admitted via text that the Condo was missing a "few things".
In the welcome book, it was stated there was a tv remote that never actualized. No TV for entire stay. My lap top was unable to connect due to an incorrect password provided on day 2. Assistant showed up at 10:30pm to help and by that time we were in bed. We wanted was a glass of wine and a movie to relax, instead we watched generic screen saver pics. All we could do was laugh at the ridiculousness of it all! Insert shoulder shrug here. TV never did work & hours wasted.
We washed some clothes the last night; the dryer didn't work so hung our clothes to dry. The lamp fixtures had torn paper on them and plants were overgrown.
The cleaning fee was very expensive yet we were asked to strip the bedding & bring linens and towels downstairs. Urine stain found on a mattress cover. I agree, a Quality Inn is much better equipped & Luxurious. Get your view from the Vancouver Lookout!
I reiterate Cheryl's review....be careful renting this penthouse, it is NOT as advertised. I have utilized VRBO since 2006 and have never been so misled. I booked this property as a treat for my family while attending a wedding in Vancouver and now regret that decision.
The property is in a fabulous location and offers amazing views however maintenance and cleaning have been hugely neglected. My disappointment in the condition of the unit was expressed to the manager while there. We laundered towels and linens before using, were expected to utilize a toilet seat that was cracked in half, the electrical outlet in the ensuite does not work as well as the light and electrical outlets in the master bedroom. We chose not to use the hot tub due to the mold all over the rim (I have even sent Mia a pic expressing the potential health risks). A new propane tank was delivered the following afternoon so we could at least then enjoy a fire on the patio. We were hoping to barbecue our last evening however found the bbq too dirty to cook on!
Although Mia indicates it is her responsibility to make this right, faults her cleaners and states this is unusual, it is apparent that the cleaning fee refund discussed "in exchange" will never come through.
I encourage any potential renters to look over all reviews, including those on AirBnB (they are not in chronological order). The 'Best penthouse in the city' adjacent to this unit is under the same management.
Amazing location, beautiful apartment, and great service
We stayed here for our first time in Vancouver and what a bar that has been set! This penthouse is not only amazing, the private roof deck is fantastic, and it’s in the middle of everything. Quick walks to Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown.
Mia and the team were also great and very responsive as well as helpful for advice. They were great to work with.
Highly recommend staying here and when we return, I wouldn’t consider anywhere else. Thanks again for a great trip Mia and team!
Fun times were had at this VRBO. Close to all of the places we wanted to go. Very much enjoyed the hot tub!
This building is nestled in the heart of crosstown, just minutes away from upscale Yaletown and historic Gastown, where you will find great shopping, spas, cafes, dine in and dine out restaurants, bars and night clubs. We are also a 2-minute walk away from the Rogers Arena, perfect for a weekend trip to watch your favourite concert. You will literally have everything you need right outside your front door! Enjoy!
