Owner description: Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district. This fresh urban neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the centre of downtown Vancouver or a quick ferry ride from Granville Island. Yaletown’s converted heritage buildings are home to some of city’s top fashion and design shops, as well as cutting edge restaurants and bars. Old loading docks act as giant sidewalks and create a unique setting for wandering, shopping, or lounging at one of the many outdoor patios.

“Cute area for a stroll!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

This old industrial area has been transformed in to chic little boutiques, restaurants, salons and hotels. Delightful place for a stroll, with a wide variety of shops, great selection of restaurants and coffee shops, and just interesting architecture, and parks to enjoy. There is even some theatre in the Round House. This area is easily accessible by the Canada Line.

“Trendy waterfront, Seawall and great restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

The heart of Yaletown sits on the waterfront at the south end of Davie Street. The Canada Line Yaletown station is about 25 minutes from the Airport, and within easy walking distance from any downtown hotel. There are more than 20 excellent restaurants, and best of all, the Seawall. Take a 40 minute walk along the Seawall from the south end of Davie Street along False Creek, through Sunset Beach and on to English Bay at the north end of Davie Street. Take an Aquabus ferry over to Granville Island, or walk over to Science World. Rent a bicycle and take the seawall all the way from Yaletown and around Stanley Park and back within 2 hours. The Roundhouse Community Center features a steam locomotive, and Coopers Park offers a waterfront off-leash dog park. David Lam park has several children's playgrounds an plenty of room for sporting activities. The only thing better than visiting Yaletown is living here.

“Views of the Sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

We walked and cycled through Yaletown which has quite a few apartment blocks surrounded by gardens and views of the water. The streets are treelined. There are some nice restaurants.

“An old warehouse district turned up market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Yaletown managed to avoid most of the high rise apartments and has transformed an old warehouse district into eclectic bars and restaurants. A great place for lunch, especially The Flying Pig - great "steak sandwich" recreation.
