Which Downtown Vancouver Condo Buildings Have Guest Suites?

IMG_1570Which Downtown Vancouver Condo Buildings Have Guest Suites? Buyers often ask me if I can find them a condo building with a guest suite. Sometimes they wish to accommodate out of town family and friends and sometimes they’re investors who wish to rent out the condo but need a place to stay when they’re in Vancouver. The suites rent for $75 pr night and up.

Which Vancouver Neighbourhood Has Condo Buildings with Guest Suites?
