Accomodation for Family of 4.5

Hi,

Having a bit of trouble finding somewhere suitable within budget.

We are 4 adults and one toddler and looking to rent an appartment for a couple of weeks near Toronto.

All the websites I've looked at only cater for staying in the centre of Toronto and are quite pricey! We will have a car so doesn't need to be in the city centre and my brother stays in Cambridge so somewhere in between there and Toronto would be preferable.

Does anyone know of any websites that would cater for this?

Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers.

You could try VRBO and AIRBNB................

http://www.vrbo.com

http://www.airbnb.com

Not positive how far out of the city you will find th rentals though...........check the kilometres to the attractions in downtown Toronto, and see how long the commute will be before deciding on a location..........

Note also that your ".5" person is actually +1, in terms of when you are renting private vacation rentals, or for legit places on airbnb. (The ones that are not licensed to offer accommodationwon't have insurance to cover the airbnb activities anyway.) When you are booking hotels, the issue of extra persons, whether children or adult, doesn't usually matter, but in the case of private rentals, they may only have insurance coverage for a specific number of guests.

If your brother lives in Cambridge, then West Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton or Oakville would be a good "halfway point" between Cambridge and Toronto.

You may want to look around the Elora Gorge, it's beautiful and fits with your halfway point to Cambridge and Toronto...

Elora is almost due north of Cambridge and while it is a one day-destination place, it does not really fit the OP's need.

Have a look at the Marriott Residence Inns in Mississauga. You can get a 2 bedroom with kitchen for about $200-$250/night. This includes breakfast as well as a light dinner Monday thru Thursday.
