About Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin

Originally from Istanbul, Turkey. Educated in U.S. in Business Administration and MBA.

World traveller, having travelled to many countries for both business and pleasure. Living in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since 2006. Proud mother of two young adult daughters.

Retired and traveling the world while accommodating world travelers in my penthouse while I am away traveling :)

Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Guner (a.k.a. Gina) Karatekin chose Central and Downtown Vancouver

When buying this property I had 2 main criteria above all:

1. Best LOCATION in downtown Vancouver where I could walk everywhere and be a part of this beautiful, vibrant city, any time of the day or night!

2. Have INCREDIBLE VIEWS to wake up to every morning and enjoy my coffee; as well as enjoying a drink in the evening while soaking in the twinkling city lights and the stars all at the same time.

I feel blessed to have found both in my place; I couldn't be happier here :)

Gorgeous view and fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

I just had the pleasure of enjoying this wonderful condo for the past week or so and I am already planning to stay again on my next trip to Vancouver. We were 2 adults and a 3-year old and there was plenty of space for us...especially in the living room which is a wonderful place to watch the sunrises from.

The space is modern, well maintained and nicely decorated. The host, Gina, was very welcoming and made us feel at home right away. My only regret is that I didn't have the chance to take Gina up on her offer of a Turkish meal...next time!

It is very centrally located with many options for restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, wine shops and of course just a couple of blocks away from the water front. We walked everywhere we went and although I was out for work we enjoyed Stanley Park, the art Gallery and walking along the seawall.

I highly recommend reaching out to Gina and staying here for your next trip to Vancouver!

Excellent location,view,complete amenities,and very clean

  • 5 of 5

Our two couples thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Buket's condo ! Awesome view from the 35th floor with ceiling to floor glass windows made for inspiring views day and night. Only minutes from the Harbour, it was perfect for daily walks along the sea wall. Restaurants were only minutes away walking distance for each evening. Bedrooms and bathrooms were fully furnished .Kitchen had all the amenities of home with appliances and dishware. This condo provided a relaxing,inspiring location to view the best of Vancouver. Buket was very gracious and warm in her hospitality,helping with any questions we had. We highly recommend this beautifully placed condo to truly enjoy a stay in Vancouver.

Delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Booking: Very good communication w/ the property owner, Guner. She was very responsive and helpful w/ questions/recommendations before we arrived and even provided an incredibly helpful Guest Manual that actually answered most, if not all, of the questions we had.

Check in: We arranged a specific time to arrive at the apartment to meet Buket (property manager), check in, and tour the apartment/amenities. Buket was also kind enough to suggest local Turkish restaurants/catering to try.

Stay: We stayed in this apartment over an extended (US) holiday weekend with friend (another couple). The way the apartment was laid out allows for some privacy between the master bedroom suite and the 2nd bedroom and bathroom, which was nice for us. The photos are absolutely true to the look and feel of the property and we were not disappointed when we arrived and Buket greeted us to give us a tour of the apartment. The views from the balcony are even more spectacular in person. It was wonderful to sip wine at the end of the day and look over the city as well as wake up to the gorgeous views.

As others have mentioned, the location is extremely convenient (located within easy walking distance of multiple attractions, a grocery store, liquor store, etc.) and the apartment itself is well appointed making it truly feel like a home away from home. We additionally found the parking spot to be helpful when we rented a car for a day trip and were delighted to not have to fight to find street parking nearby.

Check out: We had early flights out and check out was explained at check in. The instructions were simple and straightforward making the process quite painless.

Overall, we had a beautiful time exploring Vancouver and relaxing in the apartment at the beginning and end of each day, despite the rain we had during our stay (although there was sun roughly half the time we were there, and was expected for that time of year). I would highly recommend this property to friends and family and would absolutely try to stay here again the next time we visit Vancouver.

Amazing apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with my wife's sister and husband. The location of this apartment is amazing. Close to everything you need in Vancouver. Organising meeting the property manager, Buket was easy and at check in and check out she was a pleasure to work with super friendly and helpful. The appartment itself was perfect great view, quiet and comfortable. It was good to have a sanctuary to return after a busy tourist day out in Vancouver.

Having the parking space was great too and we used the car only when driving to Whistler and Vancouver Island.

Would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a great stay in Vancouver.
