Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Enjoy the charm of a heritage building while staying at the best location in downtown Vancouver. This apartment will really feel like your home away from home while in town. Safe building; lots of restaurants, shops, and attractions nearby.

The space
This apartment is located at the Electra Building, the old BC Hydro company building from 1957. Renovated and adapted to residential in 1995 it retains the modernistic charm of the '50s. It was Vancouver’s first skyscraper, then the first commercial building to be designated heritage. This unit is on the 6th floor.

Note: This is not a shared space. You'll have the place entirely to yourself.

Other things to note
Things my guests love about this unit:
– Location. Awesome spot for exploring the city on foot.
– Free washer and dryer on the same floor.
– A quiet spot in a downtown setting
– Safe building and area.
– Supermarket one block away, open to midnight.
Things some guests don't like as much:
– The building has no parking. You can park nearby for around $26 per day.
– The blinds don't cut the morning light completely.
– Although this apartment is surprisingly quiet for a downtown location, you'll hear the occasional emergency car siren.

I am the executive director of the Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre and have been hosting since 2010. I am a 20-time Superhost winner – even got a trophy from Airbnb! Please note that to comply with the City of Vancouver's bylaws, I only accept monthlong reservations. I immigrated from Brazil to Vancouver in 2008 and now I'm also a Canadian citizen. Ken, my partner, is a musician and film critic. As you can imagine, we watch more movies in one year than most people in their whole lives! I love cooking and baking with the great local products we find here. I totally fell in love with Vancouver as soon as I got here, and I'm sure you will, too. (Or maybe you are returning for a visit and know exactly what I'm talking about!) You will find a clean and comfortable apartment at the perfect location to explore the city, and I'll do my best to make your stay enjoyable and stress-free. I know how stressful planning a trip can be, so feel free to contact me with any questions. I hope to see you soon!

During your stay
I try to meet all my guests on check-in, hand the keys, and explain the basics of the apartment and neighbourhood. I will be available during your stay over the phone, and come by if you need any assistance.
