Other things to note

The Waterfall Building is an award winning live/work loft building designed in 2001 by the famous local architect Arthur Erickson. He has designed many amazing buildings in the area including the law courts and Robson square downtown, the museum of anthropology at the University of BC (UBC) and the entire campus of Simon Fraser University (SFU) on Burnaby mountain. The Waterfall Building has commercial units on the ground level, has an interesting mix of residents, artists, architects, film prospers and others in the building. There is a data centre in the basement of the building that connects many of the units with super fast internet service. The main building in the centre of the courtyard is often used as an art gallery and hosts occasional art showings, weddings or other events. It (and other units in my building) have also been used as a film venue and featured in many movies and tv shows including Battlestar Galactica, Martian Child, iZombie and White Noise.

Lovely warm welcome, David was at the flat and gave us lots of recommendations for local places to visit. The flat is fantastic- great decor and space, roof terrace with wonderful views and walking distance to granville market which we went to every day. This is an absolute gem in the midst of the city, highly recommended

Great location near Granville island. The roof top deck is amazing. Great views, fire pit. Had a legendary nap in the hammock on a sunny afternoon. Very trendy apartment. Loved it.

What a great experience staying at David's place. Very unique and stylish condo with fantastic views from the rooftop deck! The location is perfect especially being a couple of minutes away by foot to Granville Island for everything you need. Great record collection as well. Thank you very much David for sharing your awesome space!

Stones throw to Granville Island and the sea wall. Close to Kitsilano. The rooftop was the bomb! Felt safe, hip, and really comfortable in this urban setting. Comfortable beds and parking space was a true bonus. We will be back!

Wonderful apartment with amazing views located in a great part of Vancouver. 10 minute walk to Granville Island with its many restaurants, open markets, and shops. A quick walk in the other direction gets you to Fourth Avenue with many different restaurants, bars, and stores. You're a 30 minute walk over the Burrard bridge to downtown or just a few minutes by car or via bike rental. Couldn't ask for a better place! Dinner or breakfast on the green roof personal deck is also a must do. Breakfast or coffee at Prado around the corner! Dog friendly is a huge plus! We'll be back!

I was born and raised in Vancouver and love going on road trips to California with my sheepdog during the rainy season here. I started staying at some cool Californian Airbnb's and decided to create what would be my dream Airbnb right here at home. I live a healthy green and eco-friendly lifestyle and like to share this experience with the guests that I host. My spaces have amazing outdoor spaces to relax in, allow you to bring your hairy four legged friends, have the most luxurious and eco friendly beds available, have air purifiers and aromatherapy nebulizers, eco household and cleaning products and come with a fridge stocked with local cold pressed juices and raw treats.
