I stayed at Heath's place for three months and I didn't have to buy anything to make my stay more comfortable - the apartment had everything!
The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils and has everything you need - and I do mean everything. There's also stuff like an ironing board, laundry detergent, plenty of towels, blankets, pens, sellotape, plasters/band aids, an ice pack - all kinds of things you don't know you need until you do. There's quite a few books in the apartment too should you need anything to read.
The bed is huge and really comfy. You won't be disappointed there. The TV is also huge and has basic cable. I mostly made use of all the TSN channels. It has HDMI if you want to bring your Chromecast like I did to stream Netflix. The wifi is very fast and didn't disappoint.
Overall the apartment was clean, tidy and just a really nice place to stay. It felt like home to me right away. The view was pretty good too and on a clear day you can see the mountains.
Location-wise it couldn't have been any better. I walked everywhere. It was quick and easy to walk to Robson/Granville where most shops are, it's quick and easy to walk to English Bay Beach, easy to walk to Kitsilano via the Burrard Bridge (and then a little further and you can walk to Granville Island). Basically the apartment is in the middle of most places you'll want to go, with tons of bars, shops and places to eat. The movie theatre is close by too, and it doesn't even take that long to walk to the Waterfront to get the seabus across to the north shore (for hiking), although you can easily get a bus a few blocks away.
I never actually met Heath, but he always responded to my messages within a few minutes. When I told him I might have post delivered, he went out and made me a copy of his mailroom key, which was really nice. Checking in/out was easy - I just picked up and dropped off the keys at a laundromat just a few doors away.
As for the building itself, it's a little old so there's no gym facilities or anything, but it was great because there are only nine floors, meaning the elevators were always available, the laundry room was usually empty, and there wasn't much noise from neighbours. The only thing I would say is to bring earplugs as the traffic can be a little annoying at night. It can also get pretty warm, but there's two fans which I made use of.
Just FYI, if you want to do laundry you'll need to buy a card from the building manager, which you can load with credit using your debit/credit card. There's no coin operated machines in the building.
I loved my time here and I would definitely stay again without hesitation.
