Welcome to my 1,250 sq ft modern, exposed concrete, 3-level loft in Gastown with private rooftop terrace.

On the 1st level, you will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, dine & relax in the living area underneath 25 ft vaulted ceilings! The impressive concrete stairs will take you to the 2nd level, where the bedroom & loft area are located, and then up to the 3rd level, where a private 600 sq ft rooftop terrace awaits.

Within a 5-min walk is the Seawall & the city's best restaurants & bars.

The space

Make yourself at home and enjoy the unique space.

Guest access

The area of the roof that is in between the private roof terraces is not useable space.

Interaction with guests

I will always be available for guests for recommendations, questions and concerns.

Other things to note

Two more things to note: (1) this is a loft, and while the two sleeping areas (one being a bedroom, and the other being the loft space) have physical privacy, there is openness to sound; and (2) in this area of downtown Vancouver, you will see some unsightly people who are challenged with poverty and drug addition. The area is safe and the people are harmless (other than to themselves), and if you have compassion for them, you will be far less perturbed. The building is 100% secure and safe, and has a great community of owners, residents and tourists.

- There are a LOT of concrete stairs, so please understand that any children (or adults after imbibing!) need to be watched around them.
- Please note that the Gastown area - although it is beautiful in its architecture and has the city's best restaurants, watering holes and shops - is undergoing gentrification, and therefore there is poverty and street people abound.
- Please do not move any of the furniture (both inside and outside), as the grooves between the tiles can damage the furniture.
- Quiet hours in the building begin at 10 pm.
- Do not allow any strangers to follow you into the building through the front door. Make sure that they use their fobs to enter.
- If using the parkade, wait until the gate is all the way down before driving away.
- If you use the BBQ, please make sure to turn off the propane tank, and clean the BBQ (inside and outside). The cleaning fee does not include cleaning the BBQ.
- Please do not hold open the elevator to the point that it starts to beep. The elevator is liable to shut off if held open too long, and there is at least one resident in the building who requires the elevator for ingress/egress to/from her apartment.

We had a great stay at Guy's place and would highly recommend it. The space itself is spacious and stylish. There is plenty of room for a couple or two people - we wouldn't recommend it for anyone needing a great deal of privacy, though, as there are no complete walls between the bedroom and second bedroom space. The apartment was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and we were provided towels and bath toiletries. The kitchen was well stocked and there was coffee provided. There is a grocery and convenience store nearby. The location is great - walkable to all the shops and restaurants in Gastown and Chinatown. One thing to note, this neighborhood is somewhat dodgy - there are a lot of homeless people and if you would not feel comfortable with that, you should be aware of this aspect of the listing. We both live in big US cities and still felt that the amount of homelessness in that area was pretty shocking. That said, it's just part of Gastown (not isolated to the street that the apartment was on) and we never felt unsafe. Guy was a wonderful host - he met us there to get us settled, checked in on us and when we asked for an Asian food take out recommendation, did a BUNCH of research and provided us with several great options. He was very responsive and we enjoyed meeting him and appreciated his hospitality very much - he really went above and beyond. We would absolutely stay here again!

could not have had a better experience, Guy was a huge help at every step, his place is excellent -- good location, clean, quiet, with all the touches, at a more than reasonable price. and the rooftop deck was out of this world.

The Loft is incredible! Beautiful and modern in a perfect downtown location. The rooftop patio is pure magic, in such a busy city it's a perfect oasis. Guy is the most wonderful host. Easy to communicate with and very accommodating. We had a great stay!

This Airbnb rental did not disappoint. The views of downtown, the roof top patio, everything was as shown and as noted. Yes, the location is in a rough part of town, but that is what you would expect in that area. It proximity to Gastown and the numerous bike trails around the seawall are worth more than any concerns regarding the vagrant population. We had bikes with us from Whistler and were able to store then securely in the parkade and never once questioned the safety of our vehicle. We walked for breakfast every morning to gastown's numerous cafe's and coffee shops without even one questionable interaction. We could not recommend this place more as it was great and Guy was amazing to deal with. We booked super last minute and he accommodated us so nicely, met us upon arrival and showed us the suite and secure lock up for our bikes. He even suggested a self guided adventure around Stanley park, Granville island and the seawall, which we did and was a highlight of our trip. Thank you Guy and we will be back to rent again.

Place is located close to skytrain station and also bus stop is nearby. Liquor store, grocery stores, drug stores, cafe, fast food places and bars are within walking distance so its very convenient! The loft is clean and neat and well maintained. Moreover, the host was very friendly and helpful. You will enjoy your stay in Vancouver!
