In south Vancouver, this modest home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms across 2,580 square feet.
While it might not be new, it seems clean and well kept. It could be the ideal home for a large family or for a handful of roommates looking to live well while keeping their costs down. It also has spacious bedrooms that you won’t find in a condo.
At nearly $4,000 per month, this is a pricey one-bedroom. It’s penthouse level with extra tall ceilings and 720 square feet of space. And it has air conditioning – which is pretty rare for a Vancouver apartment and even more coveted after the heatwave of 2021.
You have great views, and lots of light in the unit, plus a patio space and the building has amenities like a gym and a community garden.
Between Kitsilano and South Granville, this open layout one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo has 600 square feet of space.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit is spaciously spread out across 1,000 square feet. Why does this seem like such a good deal for Vancouver?
According to the listing, you’d be sharing the living room, kitchen, and laundry, with a single professional owner. So, you’d have access to the private bedroom and bathroom only.
