The space

Coming to enjoy and explore Toronto? Here on business? Tired of hotels? Planning a family trip and want to save on accommodation and dining? This might just be exactly what you have been looking for...

Welcome to our Scandinavian-style house, conveniently located in the heart of trendy Queen St West: only steps away from parks, shops, entertainment, the best cafes in town, major attractions, the Lakeshore, spas, hospitals, and the financial district.

HOUSE: Just call it your home away from home! Find everything that you need for a short or longer stay.

The house has 3 bedrooms on the second floor. Each of them includes an individual closet. The front master bedroom faces east (sun blackout curtains are on for those who want to sleep in!) overlooking a quiet side-street. At night, enjoy the lights of the city and the view of the CN Tower right from your bed. The middle room is modeled as a children's room - and here is where kids squeal with delight - has a built-in bunk bed. Don't have any kids? It's still a very cool room: the bunk bed is an adult twin! If you are traveling with kids, there is a cradle and crib available and we welcome you to help yourself to all the baby essentials, toys, etc. The third bedroom is smaller in size and has a queen-size luxury foldout sofa-bed. The room overlooks a sunny and secluded backyard.

The bathroom on the second floor has a walk-in rain shower with a child-proof safety valve on the hot water. The second bathroom, washer & dryer are in the basement. If you want to treat yourself to an at-home spa experience, soak in the vintage claw foot tub on the lower floor!

Open concept main floor combines dining area, living room, and stylish kitchen with a breakfast bar. The living room has a 47-inch flat screen TV, surround sound system through the house (don't miss when Crosby scores a goal even when you're in the washroom!), blue-ray DVD player with tons of DVDs, XBox 360, Kinnect, Netflix, vinyl record player, and an extensive music collection both on vinyl and CDs. You are welcome to enjoy them all! Wireless internet is also available throughout the house.

The dining area has a big table that easily seats 6-8 people. Great for a hearty family dinner or a games' night. (Choose from a big variety of board games on the shelf!)

The kitchen is where things happen in this house! Enjoy modern appliances (gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, stovetop kettle, blender, etc) and lots of space to cook. A few things you won’t always find elsewhere: professional espresso machine, manual juice-maker, and your choice of gas or coal BBQ grills in the backyard.

The backyard is a privately enclosed space for you to relax and unwind. BBQ, sun tan, take a shower! We even have an outside hot/cold water shower! Gaze at the stars at night while stoking a crackling fire in an outdoor enclosed fireplace. For those traveling with kids, it is safe to leave them there to play while you are making dinner, as it is walled off from other properties and there is no back exit.

The landlord refused to supply air conditioner in extreme hot days in summer. Her husband came without permission. We think it's human rights violations.

Darya's home was amazing! When we checked in, her sister greeted us and showed us around the house. She was very friendly and helpful. The house was beautiful, the shower was great, all the rooms were clean and cozy. We especially loved the outdoor space in the back. It was gre…
