The location is Vancouver's best kept secret. Right on "Dude Chilling Park", it is literally close to everything in Vancouver, while only three blocks from hip and bustling main street it is on a quiet residential block.
It's a very clean condo with big windows. Sliding doors offer access from both the bedroom and the main room to a big balcony overlooking a park and quiet street (2nd floor). It's very private, the tree and shrub coverage combined with a quiet area make it seem like you're out of the city.
The bedroom is cozy and has an incredibly comfortable queen bed.

This is the best neighbourhood in Vancouver! Up-and-coming Mount Pleasant is safe, cool, and has nice mountain views. Centrally located, right on "Dude Chilling Park" (as featured on Jimmy Kimmel), this place is right in the heart of cool shops, cafes, shopping, and funky restaurants. It's in an enclave of work-live spaces with plenty of artistic folks abound.
Coming in to shop? You're in luck. Main Street's got it all.
Enjoy a water-side stroll in the sun while you walk to a game/concert at BC Place/Rogers Arena.

Other Things to Note
