Discover a charming place to recharge in this unique open-concept apartment. Listen to some music on the gramophone or record player and bask in the solitude of a rustic space with wood beam ceilings, repointed brick, and an industrial atmosphere.
A 1906 warehouse conversion located in Gastown. This unique 800sq ft open concept space features polished concrete floors, 16ft ceilings with timber beams, and exposed brick. Vintage industrial decor and walk through, open concept shower. This is my full time home so I've invested in high end things and my heart and soul has gone into its design! When I'm away I'm open to lending it to others. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Gastown has been voted the fourth most stylish neighborhood in the world. The apartment is close to some of Vancouver's best shops, restaurants, bars, and attractions. It is walking distance from all of the city's eclectic downtown areas and parks.
  • Tatiana was very welcoming. Apartment was centrally located and the complex was secure with nice grounds.

  • The space is gorgeous and SUPER CLEAN! I love all the home decor! It really has a unique atmosphere when you walk in! The windows open all the way and you get lots of fresh air and sunlight☀️ it’s great. I also loved the essential oils, and the skin and hair products! Didn’t expect that (: This loft has pretty much everything you need

  • My husband and I stayed in Tanya's loft for a weekend and absolutely loved it. Tanya was very accommodating with us at check-in as we were running late. The loft was in an amazing location, was very clean and comfortable. Hope to definitely stay here again soon.

    Bright private room in thoughtfully-designed loft right in the heart of the city. Great location that is centrally located with easy access to downtown (15 min by public transit and 20 min walk to the waterfront). Steps to everything with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops. Cozy and inviting home (with a very snuggly cat who thinks he's a dog). Fully equipped kitchen with complimentary tea/coffee. Towels, shampoo/soap, and hair dryer are provided. The apartment building is older and rough around the edges so please factor this into your expectations... BUT once inside our suite, we assure you will be comfortable as our 5-star reviews speak for itself :) If you want to stay close to downtown but away from the touristy areas, Main Street is it - an area with the most character and "local" feel. Delicious local restaurants, independent retailers, and eclectic shops, far and few areas in Vancouver can compete with Main Street (Mount Pleasant). With coffee houses like Forty Ninth Parallel (and their oh-so-tasty Lucky's Doughnuts) and craft breweries springing to life, it's no surprise why locals have voted Main Street as Vancouver's “coolest street".
    We have a great public transit with reliable buses/trains and an easy tap card system. - Located right off the major bus route (#3 Main & #3 Downtown). Bus stops are within 1-2 blocks. - 5 min by bike, 10 min by bus, or 20 min walk to the waterfront (False Creek Seawall - Olympic Village). - 10 min by bus to Main St-Science World Skytrain (connects you to downtown in 2 min) - 5 min drive to Greyhound/Amtrak Station. - 5 min drive to Broadway City-Hall Canada Line Train (this train connects you to YVR-Airport) - 20 min drive to YVR Airport - 45 min drive to the closest mountains for skiing/snowboarding (Cypress, Grouse, and Mount Seymour)
  • Patricia was super friendly, and so was her sweet cat! Great place to be in Vancouver! Clean. Close to downtown! Great surroundings. Safe area! Looking forward to our next stay at Patricia's place!

    Matthias2012-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia was an outstanding host. We so enjoyed staying in her beautiful cozy home and getting to know her. Her suggestions were fantastic and it was great having a Vancouver native show us the ropes. The neighborhood really grew on us and became a familiar and comfortable place to walk dine around-also a great point from which to get all over Vancouver. We loved everything about our stay!

    Kaylie2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia was great - It was easy to meet up, the location is really convenient, and parking is ample. Super comfy bed and a very friendly cat!

    Sarah2012-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location, lots of good food and coffee around and close to public transport and attractions. Patricia was very friendly and accommodating and so was her flat mate.

    Adam2014-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay and lovely location. Patricia's home was a delight to stay in. We admired her decorating skills and had a wonderful time interacting with Gibby the lovely cat! Will definitely stay here again! :)

    Aparna2015-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place in the perfect location. Great local recommendations!

    Elizabeth2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely stay with Patricia! She went out of her way to help us and was fun to talk to. The neighborhood is very nice, lots of restaurants and stores within an easy walk. Gibbard, her cat, is adorable! Fantastic stay overal! :)

    Andre2012-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia is a lovely & gracious host with great advice about the SoMa area. Her place is cute and cosy in a great area

    A beautiful, bright, airy 2 level loft at the edge of Gastown, Railtown + Chinatown. Steps away from some of the best restaurants + shops in the city and a short walk to the Skytrain + Seabus. A gorgeous loft in a hip and historic part of town. *This property is only available for a minimum 30 day rental.
    This is a 700sq/ft two level lofted apartment with 16ft ceilings and polished concrete floors. The living area, kitchen and bathroom with shower and tub are on the lower level. The queen sized bed, washer and dryer are upstairs. There are two large empty closets with hangers. This loft is on the sixth floor of the building with east facing floor-to-ceiling windows and a small balcony with nice views of the north shore mountains and the rooftops in Railtown. The loft features mid-century modern decor and a flatscreen tv including an appletv with access to Netflix.
    Gastown, Railtown and Chinatown make up part of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside which is a diverse and unique community. Gastown is the heart of Vancouver. It is the city's oldest neighbourhood and full of history and culture. It offers a thriving fashion district, impeccably curated decor boutiques, one of a kind galleries and is bursting with the best food and drink in the city. The downtown eastside is also home to some of the city’s most poor and marginalized. People visiting this area for the first time are sometimes surprised by the sight of homelessness, mental illness and open drug use. If seeing this kind of thing up close makes you uncomfortable, then it is best to avoid walking along the east part of Hastings Street especially between Carrall Street and Main Street. We currently live in this building with our 6 year old daughter and love it! In the 16 years we have lived in this area, we have never felt threatened or unsafe. We are more than happy to discuss intelligent ways for you to navigate the neighbourhood during your stay, but we highly recommend you do your own bit of research on the downtown eastside before deciding if this is a suitable location for you. The streets encompassing the building itself are typically very quiet. The majority of Gastown's restaurants and bars are a couple of blocks away so there isn’t a lot of street or foot traffic in the evenings. However, the building is directly next to functioning train tracks. This area of Railtown/Gastown marks the end of the line for all trains coming into the city. This means that they typically move past the building at very slow speeds. They brake and sometimes shunt. If you've never heard train cars shunt before, it can be very loud at times. The trains do not run constantly, but they also have no predictable schedule and can be heard at any hour of the day or night 7 days a week. Most people are not bothered by the trains and some even find them charming. We live in the same building and we hardly notice them. However, if you are a light sleeper, there are earplugs available in the bedside drawer if needed. We have carefully curated a Guidebook featuring some of our favorite neighbourhood restaurants, cafes, sites and shopping recommendations. You can access the Guidebook from our listing, but we will also leave a printed copy for you in the loft.
  • Easy Great location Highly recommend

    Nicholas2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • It’s an amazing Loft as described. James and Leanne were great and responded promptly to every query. I arrived in Vancouver early and they were really nice to allow early checkin! I rented their home for over a week and they did everything to make my stay comfortable. I will definitely stay in their apartment when I visit next .

    Aaqib2018-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved the place, it was truly a great experience for me who never stayed in a loft before. Place was clean, just as described on the pictures. Check-in was easy as James greeted us on a late evening(thanks for being so accommodating). The location is excellent, right next to gas town and close to down-town area. It is close to the railway, but it wasn't a problem for us for the train noises. We also enjoyed watching netflix next to the fireplace. Thank you everything, we enjoyed our stay!

    Hannah2016-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • James & Leanne’s Place was cozy, comfortable, and just as represented— I really enjoyed my stay! Exceptionally clean, with thoughtful touches like an umbrella, coffee supply, and even a Gastown candle. All communication and key pickup/drop off was a breeze. Suggestions to local restaurants and coffee shops were great and much appreciated. The place was quiet and I felt very safe in the neighborhood; as is mentioned in the description you might wish to avoid E. Hastings and take one of the several alternate routes to the heart of Gastown (5-7 min walk) as this is not the most cheerful street in Vancouver... Would highly recommend this place and send my thanks to James & Leanne!

    Alex2017-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful way to start our honeymoon. An incredible loft flat, the pictures really do show how amazing it is. Located close to a great area, with what we believe had some of the best cafes, restaurants and bars (you must go to Bao Bei, a 10 min walk). James and Leanne are excellent hosts, whose communication was top notch. We fell in love with Vancouver, and this apartment definitely helped us do that, we'd love to come back.

    Rich2016-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed in The Loft for five-six days and had a great time. Having never been to Vancouver before, we were looking for somewhere close to the centre of town, but still not touristy, the loft was exactly what we were looking for. A short 10mins walk to the train and bus stations with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants and shops right outside the door. The space was very clean and tidy with the photos and descriptions being 100% accurate. The check-in and out process was seamless and the guidebook provided by James and Leanne was very helpful in getting to know the local good spots in the area.

    Lorna2017-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at the loft. It's in a great neighborhood close to great restaurants. The loft was great and exactly as advertised, clean and accommodating. The hosts were great and were very responsive. Highly recommend this space to anyone heading to Vancouver.

    Steve2016-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, where to start? Our stay in James and Leanne's apartment was just perfect. It is absolutely stunning and everything is just so convenient! Thank you so much, I really didn't want to leave. Hope to stay again :)

    Stay in the heart of downtown Vancouver's super trendy Chinatown. You'll love coming home to this one bedroom penthouse with luxury finishes including a chefs kitchen, deep soaker tub, great views and patio which overlooks the city. Step outside and you'll be the immersed in Vancouver's best restaurants and nightlife. Minutes walk from Main Street, Gastown and Downtown. This home includes secured underground parking.
    My home is a sanctuary in the heart of this bustling city, everything is open plan and brand new!
    Chinatown is fast becoming one of Vancouver's grooviest spots! It has its own distinct charm and home to many of cities best eateries and establishments. Chinatown, Gastown and along with most of downtown is also home to the residents of the downtown east side. The back alleys and nearby neighborhoods have a homeless scene. It's never been a issue and very common throughout Vancouver and it's the diversity which makes this city so great :)
  • The apartment was very clean and more spacious than we had thought. The bed is very comfortable! The little roof terrace was a lovely place to eat al fresco and watch the street life below. We enjoyed the location of the apartment which is surrounded by great cafes and restaurants and is a short walk to downtown, Gastown or the sea buses at Science World. We stayed for one month and it was a perfect introduction to Vancouver.

    Lauren2018-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful place in a decent location that's close to everything you need. We drove up from Seattle for a little getaway and Anne's place blew us away! The Penthouse was much bigger than anticipated. The decor was absolutely gorgeous and comfortable on top of that. Basic kitchen essentials were provided and we even just stayed in and made a home cooked dinner our second night because-- why leave?!? Wonderful view with a balcony to sip our morning tea and coffee. The check in and check out process was simple and the Building was secure which was a plus. Her place definitely made the not so holiday---rain, wind and clouds bearable. A must book!

    Desiree2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great modern space. We were very comfortable. The location is on the edge of Chinatown and is very walkable to Gastown, Chinatown, and transit. Have fun!

    Victoria2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay, the flat is beautifully decorated and immaculately kept. You are in the heart of Chinatown and all it has to offer. We enjoyed watching the sun rise from the balcony. Would highly recommend.

    Andrew2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment that was roomy and yet cozy! The bed was super comfortable and the neighborhood was indeed up and coming, as described. It's best to know the area a little before wandering because nearby Hastings street gets sketchy. Anne provided a great welcome packet of information including ideas on where to eat, which was helpful. Also helpful as an International traveler was the included wifi. There was a lovely deep bath tub, which I didn't partake of, but is a great amenity. Lastly, having a garage parking spot included was very convenient so I didn't have to worry about parking.

    Malana2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place is lovely and very clean. Will definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Vancouver. Building is super close to everything. Anne was extremely helpful.

    Daisy2017-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! The apartment is as described and Anne was even kind enough to drop off a fan when it warmed up which was great! While there are undesirables around the appartment and building is very secure and we never felt unsafe! We had a great stay.

    Madeline2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place is beautiful, pristine, and has everything you could need including wifi and cable! She communicates impeccably with detailed instructions on how to obtain and return the keys and how to get to the unit. The underground secured parking was ideal as we would not have been comfortable leaving our car parked outside in this neighborhood (also- women, I wouldn't advise walking around alone here, especially at night. Call a cab to take you to where you want to go and then walk around!). All in all we thought that Anne's place was a great value and we would stay there again now that we know about the neighborhood and how to avoid the sketchy people! Recommended :D

    We had a fantastic visit to Vancouver and enjoyed our stay in Linda's suite. Great view looking out onto Burrard Street, especially at night when the city lights up. Suite was just as pictured in the photos, and is in the perfect location to explore downtown Vancouver. Very short walk to all of the great shopping on Robson, and also close to Yaletown and Gastown. Quick and convenient bus ride or drive to get out to Kitsilano or other areas of the city. Linda and Avi were wonderful hosts - they accommodated our late arrival and delayed flight, which we really appreciated. Overall, a great experience. We would recommend this suite to anyone traveling to Vancouver. Thanks, Linda!

    Kathryn and Jeff were very warm and accommodating. The neighborhood was very quiet and just as advertised! The location is also nearby a lot of great restaurants. For breakfast, we had these incredible scones from a nearby Brazilian bakery whose name, unfortunately, escapes me at the moment. Definitely a must for those who are interested in baked goods or food in general. Overall, a great bed and breakfast experience in BC.
