I was in a bind in July, had no place to stay, so I contacted jack Merlotti to see if he had any place available. Sure enough, I got to stay in this adorable one-bedroom place just down the block from Garibaldi. It's on the top floor, has an elevator and a gorgeous view of the mountains out the bedroom and kitchen windows.
The tram is 2 minutes away, the beach is a lovely 15-minute walk, as is the port and there is everything you need in the apartment. it's nicely decorated with bright spring colors and the sun streams in during the day. I'll be back
