Sorry, this property is no longer active.

We are very sorry but you have arrived at a property listing that is not currently active for bookings. Please return to the main page to continue your search for your ideal property.

Domain is a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment on ground level with a separate entrance and off street parking. Each bedroom is designed inspired by the multiculturalism milieu of the Domain's surroundings, the Commercial Drive area of Vancouver's African, French and Zen feel. The Domain apartment features a comfortable, yet elegant open living-dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and in-suite laundry. The well supplied kitchen includes large supply of dishes, cutlery, glassware, cookware and storage supplies. Keep in touch with the provided high speed wireless internet, cable TV and free local phone calls. Looking to venture out as a tourist in Vancouver, there are brochures of visitor sights and dining establishments provided for you to peruse.

The Commercial Drive Area is well known for its diversity, vibrancy and sense of community. With many shops, restaurants, schools and parks and century-old heritage homes 'The Drive' is an area that has something for everyone. Once known as 'Little Italy', The Drive is now a center of multiculturalism. A cornucopia of sights, sounds and flavours awaits those who wonder around the neighbourhood, which boosts nearly 100 restaurants including Italian, Greek, Cuban, Thai, African, Japanese, Chinese and Indian cuisine. Many residents of this neighbourhood can be seen sipping espresso at any of the 19 coffee bars along The Drive. For those who love to cook at home there are countless fresh fruit and vegetable markets, delis and specialty food shops. The community of Commercial Drive is home to many parks. Two community gardens are available for residents, and nearby Trout Lake is a popular destination for joggers, cyclists and dog walkers. Along the many tree-lined side streets of The Drive are a number of character and heritage buildings, including the Saint Francis of Assisi Parish and J.J. Milers Kurragong.

If you are looking for a centrally located condo but are wanting to experience a little more culture rather than being in the hustle and bustle of downtown, Domain on Commercial drive is the ideal location for you, whether it be for business or for pleasure.

Extremely disappointed in this accommodation. The photographs look nice on the website, but what the description fails to mention is that this is a basement accommodation. It has very little natural daylight and the lighting is poor with also not much natural ventilation. There is a staircase in the living room, which takes up a quarter of the living area, but doesn't go anywhere. Ceilings are thin, as a result of which you can hear people walking about on the floor above and when they flush the toilet and take a shower. Low ceilings with lots of sharp edged beams to hit your head on - only good for short people if you're tall, as my family are, you need to constantly duck your head. We found the standard of cleanliness left a lot to be desired with lots of cobwebs and resultant spiders, dirty tissue in one of the bedrooms and a dirty sock under one of the beds. TVs in each of the bedrooms is nice, but it would be good to have a communal TV in the living area, so the TV can be watched as a family. We found the general maintenance of the property poor, with the computer chair faulty, light bulbs out in both bathrooms and one of the bedrooms, wires protruding out of walls, the fridge leaks, the chopping block in the kitchen is filthy and the ventilation grill above the microwave is putrid with grease and grime. Not much work space in the kitchen. The lights in one of the bedrooms kept flickering on and off. Also, in the main bathroom, is the main fuse box to the property with no lock on it - a severe H&S hazard. The bathroom door does not close properly, the glass shelf is insecure, the shower is not sealed properly and the hairdryer is held together with stickytape. The shower in the en suite bathroom is also not sealed properly which allows water to leak onto the bathroom floor, as a result of which there is mould growing on the wall. The toilet is also loose on the floor and there is a towel hanger missing. Master bedroom has no cupboards to put anything in - just a basic wardrobe. The Fenced Yard mentioned in the accommodation description comprises of a walkway with rubbish bins at one end and there certainly isn't any garden, although this is stated in the description, unless you count the front path with volcanic rock scattered over it. Although we enjoyed our time in Vancouver, this property put a slight dampner on our holiday and we certainly wouldn't stay there again.

A dark, cramped basement apartment with low ceilings. The decor is rather stylish, but overall the place is constrictive and rather depressing. Trash strewn in the entranceway doesn't help, either. The so-called master bedroom is so small there's no room for dresser or nightstand and its attached bath is cruise ship size.

Ethnic-bohemian neighborhood holds some interest and a variety of good eateries, but is on the eastern edge of the city and out of walking distance from other attractions. And the house sits at the intersection of two very busy, noisy streets.

Don't be fooled by the pics of the place, which show it as bright and airy, or like us you'll be disappointed.

We enjoyed our stay very much, although the address was somewhat confusing as in my case, driving to it from the airport by a taxi driver who wanted me to get out on Commercial Drive even though I couldn't find the address caused quite some stress we were given a Commercial Drive address that doesn't exist, and actually the entrance to the apartment is on First Avenue. Furthermore, we had no idea whatsoever that it was a step down from the entrance alley somewhat like a basement flat, which was rather disconcerting.

I would suggest installing a switch in the bedroom with sitting room and raised bed, because at night it was quite a task to feel my way to the bathroom.
Otherwise, very good, we enjoyed our stay.

EMR Service, shaky at first, once contact from Brenda then I had at least a person to contact marvellous. Efficient, clear communication. Thanks.
Property owner - Good property, as described, no unpleasant surprises. Owner was very polite and helpful, communications clear and concise. When help was needed for an iron & ironing board, the owner obliged.
I would choose both EMR and this property in future if needed.
A very minor negative would be no thermostatic control of the heating system in the property. Remedied by asking people upstairs to crank up the dial.

The accommodations were satisfactory and we really enjoyed the location of the property. While I do not regret renting the property I found the price fairly high for what we got, irrespective that the price may well be the going rate for properties like that. By comparison, in the US where I golf every second year we get a brand new fully furnished four bedroom house with swimming pool and jacuzzi for the same price and sometimes less.

Regardless, I was satisfied. You may wish to consider placing an iron and ironing board in the accommodations as we did not have either. The fact that there was a washer and dryer was very much appreciated. Also, you may wish to consider placing a telephone handset in the property which can be used to make local calls.

Thanks very much and BTW, Brenda and Joanne were very good to deal with.

EMR Response


Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your experience at the Domain. We wish we could offer properties in Vancouver at a lower price but the real estate market is booming in Vancouver which has really driven up the value of real estate and the price for rentals. Vancouver has been booming while most places in North America have seen significant real estate drops.
We will be sure to provide your suggestions of the iron and ironing board plus a local telephone to the owner to consider. Thank you again for your stay and we hope to see you again soon.

Our accommodations were cozy. The only experiences we had that were negative about the property is that there were little sugar ants all over the main bathroom floor and in the front area by the kitchen table so we could never take our shoes off because of that. That was my only real complaint about the property however, I was told that it's that time of year and because we were on the ground floor I'm thinking it's probably more common. Other than that, we were told that we would have two parking stalls in the back to park but every night there was other vehicles parked there so there was a lot of double parking to make it work. Condo was relatively clean, convenient and the owner was friendly and accommodating.
