We know Vancouver as our beloved hometown. The rest of the world know Vancouver as a cheaper option for filming locations, but also a city of ridiculously high and continuously sky-rocketing housing prices.
Put those together, and you get a bunch of famous celebrities, from actors to musicians who can actually afford places in Vancouver, renting out while on set or purchasing some serious luxury real estate up here.
As you know, it's not that difficult to spot a celebrity in Vancouver. But a little harder to spot, is the multi-million dollar homes and apartments that they stay or have previously stayed in. So here we've put together a little list of some of the most beautiful homes that make us really wish we were celebrities.
