Centrally located in a quiet residential neighborhood, you won't find a cozier, more charming home away from home as your base for exploring. You'll love our elegant touches, the rustic but modern Euro vibe and thoughtful detail that has gone into making everything about staying with us the best. Welcome! A spacious, bright and well equipped, modern kitchen greets you as you walk in. You can leave your shoes / boots / footwear on the boot rack adjacent the door and your coat / jacket / sweater on the hooks provided above it. Or, in the either of the two ample closets found deeper into the unit, the first being on your left just past the huge fridge by the stairs. The medium sized dining table that sits by the stairs is an excellent place to unwind over a meal after the day's adventure. The lovely modern bathroom is situated to the left of the fridge. The shower is awesome. And we are luxury towel / spa people. The aforementioned stairs lead up to the hosts' main living space. This should be considered off limits. The door remains locked at all times. It is an entirely private, self contained space. As you delve deeper, down the warm hallway, past the double closet, the next door on the left (also remains locked) leads the boiler / laundry room - ask the host if you wish to purchase these services. Just beyond that, the next door on your left, is the cozy main bedroom, with a comfortable, brand new queen sized bed and fine linens. The minimal cutaway design of the west wall allows for easy communication between the main bedroom and the spacious living area at the very end where you will find the Cable TV, ample seating (with a queen sized pull out sofa bed) in a soothing oasis from the rigors of the city and travel. It's a great place to chill and recharge. The back door to the large garden should be kept closed / locked but on warmer days it is lovely to keep open and enjoy the gentle garden breezes and golden sunsets. One could say that Time seems almost to stand still in these moments... So, welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay and find everything about our lovingly maintained unit to your full satisfaction.More

Location of this comfortable apartment is perfect, just a short walk from many bars and restaurants. It was a shame we were only In Toronto for two days but we will gladly stay there again if we go back. Thanks for starting our Canadian adventure!!

About the neighbourhood
Words can't describe the easy, quiet, downtown charm of Seaton Village / Christie Pits - the area that we are so privileged to live in. So centrally located with convenient, nearby access to Subways, Buses, Bikes Lanes and Taxis, it's hard to imagine ever needing a car. Toronto is a really easy city to get around and the following local attractions / areas are all within close distances / travel times from our downtown House: • Pearson Airport - 25 kms / 15 miles. 30 mins. The UP Express Train that runs to and from Pearson International Airport is easily the fastest, most convenient, cleanest and absolute best option available. Our House is located near the UP's Bloor stop. The UP Train journey is only 17 minutes from the airport.
Getting around
• Biking or Uber / Taxi are your best bet. Toronto has exceptional bike lanes and is relatively flat and very safe. We do not offer bikes, as yet, unfortunately. • Subway / Bus transit (TTC) is your 2nd best bet. You can walk to 2 stations in about 5 - 7 minutes. And several Bus Stops in 2 mins. The following represent very realistic travel times from the House: You can get to the financial district as well as Eaton Centre / Dundas Square / ACC etc. via Subway within 20-30 minutes max or an Uber in 15 mins, door to door. Yorkville, ROM, UofT, High Park (the other way), Exhibition Place / Waterfront / Liberty Village / BMO field within 15-20. Ossington and Dundas area - the closest thing to Brooklyn in Toronto is a 5-10 mins bus ride.
