Downtown Vancouver condo renters live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and they do not need to get on a plane or take a train to feel like they are having a weekend away. One word comes to mind….STAYCATION!
They can simply enjoy the local entertainment that surrounds them; such as live theater and after the play they can partake in late night tapas at one of the many trendy downtown bistros…OR…how about a chilled apple martini and then a short stroll a few blocks away to listen to some live jazz music. Condominiums to rent in downtown Vancouver are often so close to the ocean that visitors and locals alike can merely walk out their front door and feel like they are on vacation. What could be better than having a leisurely lunch with a group of friends while taking in our spectacular ocean views.
Vancouver Property Managers find renting a condo in Vancouver one of the easiest jobs to do; especially in the downtown core where you are so close to all the truly unique shops and endless restaurants on trendy Robson Street. Shopping not your thing? I totally relate….Try walking the seawall and then taking a ferry trip over to Granville Island. Have dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants followed by shopping in the Granville Island Market. To make it even more fun, bring along your family and make a night of it. There are many creative works from local artists in the Island shops or just relax and take a load off and have a pint at one of the waterfront pubs. People travel from all over the world to visit our fabulous city, so take a walk out your front door and share a tourists experience for the weekend.
Enjoy the feeling of getting away but not the expense.
Everyday can be a mini holiday in your own city especially when “Be a tourist in your own home town” hits next month.
Slip on your comfy walking shoes and hit the streets. Shopping and people watching is a great way to get to know Vancouver in a whole new light.
