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.
  • Tanya's place was amazing! Bright, clean, and exactly as advertised. It's perfect for an individual or a couple - with plenty of space and a big comfortable bed. If you don't mind walking you can get almost anywhere in downtown Vancouver on foot. I walked to and from the Convention Centre, Rogers Arena, and various other locations. I didn't meet Tanya in person but she was always reachable and attentive if I ever needed anything. She was a great host. Highly recommended!

  • The photos were a very accurate representation of the place. The location was central to all the activities we wanted - the great restaurants, the public transit to go exploring, and the shopping.

    Justin2016-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Look no further. If you're looking to stay in or near Gastown, have total confidence choosing this great place. It's clean, spacious, beautiful, has all you need in terms of amenities, the bed is *very* comfortable, and it's central to pretty much any where you'd like to walk in the area. We loved it here and so will you!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Tatiana's loft and wish that we had more than one night to stay! The place looks exactly like the photos and we loved her decorations. It was lovely to relax and listen to records after dinner.

    Jodi2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place, central, beautiful and clean, we loved the stay, felt like we got to live in an apartment in a style and home magazine. Tatiana made it very easy for us to find the place and get it and our. Thanks!

    *Please read ENTIRE listing to ensure our place is right for you* DO NOT BOOK THROUGH THIS LISTING AS WE ARE HAVING TECHNICAL ISSUES. PLEASE SEE OUR OTHER LISTING HERE: https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/25194833 Vancouver is in very high demand May-October (which is why rates are higher). We recommend booking in advance if you are interested in staying as our calendar is limited.
    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 old and not the most appealing 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 :)
  • Patricia (and Gibbard) were wonderful! They were both relaxed and very friendly. Gibbard is a total cuddlebug. :) Patricia's place is clean, warm and located in a great area with easy access to the rest of the city. I highly recommend a stay at Patricia's apartment.

    James2013-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Elizabeth and Ryan’s place. We came to Vancouver for the weekend to see a show at the Orpheum Theatre. We chose their place because we wanted somewhere central to stay. Mt Pleasant is a trendy little neighbourhood, and their loft is just as trendy and only steps away from lots of great coffee shops, restaurants, etc. Their place is spotless, so clean and inviting. The bed is comfy and the guest room is quite large. Their friendly cat Gibby loves to cuddle with their house guests. Elizabeth gave us lots of great recommendations for things to do and places to go eat. We were very pleased by all of them. I recommend renting a bicycle to see the city. Vancouver is very bike-friendly and it’s a great way to get around. Thanks Elizabeth and Ryan for the hospitality! If we’re back in Vancouver, we will definitely be looking you up!

    Christina2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Elizabeth's place! The apartment was clean and cozy and Elizabeth was a perfect host. There's lots to do within walking distance and downtown is just a short bus ride away. Elizabeth was so friendly and easy to contact and gave us tons of great ideas about where to go and where to eat! I would definitely stay here again!

    Katelyn2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth and Ryan were wonderful guests and the area surrounding their place is a caffee lovers dream. Would definately recomend it.

    Justin2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • I whole heartedly recommend Elizabeth's place, it was incredible from the neighbourhood, to the furnishing and even her lovely cat. Elizabeth was so nice and helpful, everything was planned to a T, couldn't have been more welcomed and comfortable.

    Declan2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia was a relaxed host, and I enjoyed my stay in Vancouver. I didn't initially realize that I would be renting her sole bedroom while she slept on the pull-out couch in the living room (though she did make this clear on the posting), but my experience was perfectly comfortable regardless. I had full use of the common space, and I'd recommend Patricia's place to anyone considering staying in Mount Pleasant.

    Nick2012-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay with Patricia and Gibbard (her super-adorable and smoochy house cat). The place is simple, clean, neat and tidy and located in a great part of town close to public transport (which is regular, reliable and services almost anywhere you would want to go). There are some great eateries nearby and it is a beautiful part of the city to just walk through. Patricia is a great host, friendly and helpful and full of knowledge of places to visit if you haven't planned your trip ahead. Gibbard is just gorgeous and if your idea of relaxing after a hard days touring is sitting for hours on the couch with some fine local boutique beers (and there are quite a few) patting the cat then he will definitely oblige :) Would definitely stay here again if I am ever back in Vancouver.

    Jamie2013-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Patricia's appartment very much. Even though we did not have much of a chance to talk to each other, we stayed in contact via airbnb messenger, which I appreciated very much. Patricia offered her help at all times and recommended places to go, which we would not have visited without her help. Thanks! There are plenty of cafés and bars in the lively neighbourhood and the public transport connection to downtown is great, even though we used bikes.

    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+ nights*
    This is a 700sq/ft two level lofted apartment with 16ft ceilings and polished concrete floors. The living area, kitchen, dining area 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 fitted with black-out blinds 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 lived in this neighbourhood for 20 years and raised our young daughter in this building for seven years. We loved our time here and 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.
  • James and Leanne’s apartment is modern with lots of light and soft touches—beautiful chandelier and large plants that make the place welcoming. Very comfortable bed and even a small bed for my son. We stayed for 2 months and found it easy to live there, 3 minutes from Gastown and many top restaurants a short walk away. We highly recommend their place— very Vancouver.

    Berit2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed at the Gastown loft for a week and had a great experience! The loft was very clean and comfortable. James and Leanne had provided plenty of extra towels, sheets, soaps, and other necessities. And the location of the loft was perfect. We took them up on many of the suggestions they left in the guidebook and made sure to visit as many of the local eateries as we could, which was a lot given the convenient location! But we were also able to stay in some nights and make use of the 65" TV and Canadian Netflix, which is waaayyyy better than Netflix in the US. The only downside was that we did not find the mattress to be as comfortable as other reviewers; it was too firm for our taste. But that did not inhibit our enjoyment of the loft!

    Zach2016-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • James and Leanne were great hosts. We loved the location of the loft, as well as the big windows. The place looked just like the pictures.

    Bronte2016-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Absolutely loved our stay in Vancouver at this gorgeous loft! The style, design, and decor is stunning but comfortable. The location is great, near to local restaurant gems and very close to all the areas of Vancouver we wanted to explore. Leanne and James were great hosts, making our stay extremely enjoyable. Truly great value for this amazing home! Would love to visit again!

    Alyssa2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Leanne’s studio was absolutely stunning. The apartment had everything we needed plus some! We really appreciated all the special touches Leanne and James put into this space such as fresh local coffee beans, epsom salt for a relaxing bath, lovely smelling candles and a detailed booklet with hot spots and information about the stay. Waking up to floor to ceiling windows and coffee by the fire was a luxury! The location is ideal with coffee shops and restaurants easily walkable. We are looking forward to staying here again when we visit Vancouver.

    Thomas2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place - exactly as the pictures show. Comfortable, homely, and perfectly situated.

    Linton2017-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first airbnb stay and I was a little nervous. James and Leanne were the perfect first hosts. They were easy to get a hold of, and accommodating. The loft is beautiful, very clean and had everything I needed for a week of business travel. The bed was firm but so comfy! I loved the sheets and pillows, so cozy and relaxing. I enjoyed waking up to the sunrise and sitting with a coffee on the balcony. The location is neat, close to gastown and a quick walk to the conference center. I wish I had more time to enjoy the neighborhood and the delicious eats Vancouver has to offer. It would have been nice to have cable to watch sports, but there are many locations close by that satisfied this. I highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed.

    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 :)
  • Great stay at Anne's. I would live here LOL

    Sunny2017-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Anne’s place was very convenient to access and close to many great amenities within walking distance or transit. Sparkling clean. Anne was communicative and quick to respond. Recommended.

    Lee2018-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's apartment is beautiful! We enjoyed the patio, and it was great to have a parking spot in a garage. I would read the listing carefully - her description of the neighborhood is accurate. Definitely stay out of alleys at night! It was easy to walk to everything or hop on the bus, but a little scary at night. As the listing mentions, there is no A/C. There are only 2 tiny windows that open, so it got kind of stuffy inside. I would recommend packing a small fan (or hopefully Anne will add one to the apartment!). We were there in May, and it was warm and sunny, so during cooler months it would probably be fine. Overall great experience! Would stay here again.

    Kim2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place is perfect! Anne was clear, communicative, and friendly leading up to check-in – which was super easy – and throughout my stay. The apartment is located on a side street in Chinatown and is walkable to nearly anything you'd want to do in the city, however the building has the added bonus of secure underground parking should you need it, which is a rarity in Vancouver. Inside, the apartment was super clean and very well appointed with all the amenities you'd want. The private balcony space is really lovely in the summer, with a killer view of downtown. The bed was also super comfortable! Will definitely stay here again next time I'm visiting Vancouver.

    Sarah2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous apartment in an excellent location. Easy access to excellent local shops and restaurants. A great location to exlore the city!

    Jarrod2018-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Anne was very accommodating with check in and check out and quick to respond to messages. Getting the keys from the key cafe was easy. The condo was extremely clean and well decorated. The condo is within walking distance of lots to see and do in Vancouver, however we saw quite a few addicts/drug use nearby. That being said, we did not necessarily feel unsafe walking around. All of the nearby restaurants we went were great. We visited during a heat wave, so the condo was pretty warm (no AC) but the 2 fans helped get some air circulating. Overall we had a very nice stay and enjoyed our time in Vancouver!

    Margaret2018-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place was perfect for our stay! It was just as described and the location is excellent for restaurants and easy access to transit. The check-in/check-out process was simple and Anne responded super quick to any questions. Definitely recommend!

    Kristie2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment in an amazing location. Fantastic sunset view. Effortless communication and check in/out.

    Ann‘s place looks exactly like on the picture. It's really clean and cozy, decorated with nice taste. The mattress is also very comfortable. Ann is a considerate host; she helps us with where-to-go and dining around. Ann's family lives upstairs thus allowing plenty of privacy for both the host and guests. Neighbourhood is quite and safe, 5 min walking distance to the metro station, and there are Chinese restaurants running late next to the station! Very nice stay at the house and highly recommend!!
