I FINALLY have a condo in Vancouver!!!

At long last, I have a place to live for the next five months. My new digs are five minutes to Robson Street and 10 minutes to both Coal Harbour and Stanley Park. I've had quite a time over the past few weeks dealing with realtors in Vancouver. I finally found one that I liked who actually responded to my emails and phone calls. Gee, what a concept to actually do your job. (In all fairness, one other realtor responded with an available crackhouse-like condo on Smithe Street.)

I didn't get a water view like I was hoping for (and I wasn't willing to pay an additional $1,000/month to get it), but I can walk to the water in less than 10 minutes. I did, however, get two outside balconies, a solarium and insuite laundry (yes, that's a big deal in a lot of these buildings).

So, I'm thrilled yet a little edgy about this whole Vancouver move. It'll be nice to finally get out there so I can just settle down and start enjoying all Vancouver has to offer (instead of worrying about what to put in storage, what to pack and how to get everything else done in the next week).

I was hoping you would choose the crackhouse. LOL I am glad you have a place to live now.

I wish I could come out to see you. You are going to have a blast. Cute place you are going to be living in. You seem to be managing everything just fine so just keep doing what you are doing.

I didn't choose the crackhouse because otherwise where would you and your family vacation this summer? LOL. I can call and see if it's still available (I'm sure it is).


I'm actually giddy about it all now. I still have a lot to do but it will all get done. I have finally found my zen. :)

I hope it feels like home soon. Congrats to you on your move. I love your new place!

glad you found a place you like. looks nice.

Thanks, Kristen!!! I'm really excited. (I'm already dying to start baking and cooking again, though. All my bakeware/cookware has been donated, thrown out or is boxed and in storage.)

Hi, Kurt!!! It looks nice, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it actually is nice.

Looks like a great place - good luck on the move! We just moved a few weeks ago today, and it will be a LONG time before I even THINK about moving again.
