If you’re looking to stay in one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Toronto (if not the coolest), then look no further. Voted by Vogue as the ‘second-hippest district in the world’, this is where you want to be while exploring our amazing city.
[**Superhost Status received within our first 6 months of hosting!**] :)
This apartment is a separate lower unit (basement) within a home with a private entrance. It is a full 1 bedroom + den/office apartment with your own bathroom and kitchen. There is a super comfy brand new Queen bed in the bedroom (just purchased in November 2016), and a brand new sectional sofa in the living room (also purchased in November 2016). Although the sofa is more of a condo-sized sectional, if someone were wanting to they could certainly sleep on it, though I might not recommend that for someone tall. If you are travelling with a young child, we are happy to provide you with a Pack N' Play. The unit has retrofit status and has been approved by the fire department (High fives for safety! Ha!) :). The bathroom has a rain showerhead and we’ve had a water filtration system installed in the home so the water is de-chlorinated for bathing and drinking. The kitchen includes a new Kitchenaid gas range, marble countertops and is also stocked with pretty much anything you could need to cook up an amazing meal should you choose to (including a brand new high-end stainless steel pots & pans set). The kitchen also includes a coffee machine and soda stream awaiting your use. There is also an electric fireplace as well as a laundry room just outside of your unit that you will have access to. The unit is fully equipped with unlimited high-speed Internet, a large flat screen 4k Smart TV with a 4K Rogers box, along with cable including 4K Netflix, HBO, NHL Centre Ice and pretty much all the channels you could possibly want.
You'll have full access to your entire apartment and shared access to the laundry room (no charge for laundry, it is complimentary). Backyard use is limited to smoking only as this area is used by permanent residents of the other units of the home. There are multiple all day/overnight parking lots within 2-3 minutes walk from the apartment (including one at the foot of our street!)
Interaction with guests
My husband and I live in the main floor unit and if we're around we'll be more than happy to help out with any questions you may have. We love our city and are happy to share any of our knowledge with you during your stay! :)
Other things to note
Not only is this area amazing and have tons of things to do all within walking distance, our place is also surprisingly quiet (the eye of the storm kind of thing). So, should you decide to have a quiet night in and relax, there won’t be any issue with that.
Check-in and Check-out times are both flexible. We will do our best to accommodate your requests. Self check-in is possible with our keyless keypad entry system.
This is a great place to stay for anyone, whether you’re single, paired up, an executive in town for work, or a family looking to explore a new city, we’re more than confident you’d love your stay here. The hosts aren’t so bad either. ;)
