The photos on trip advisor don't do the place justice!
We were over in Canada for a friend's wedding and this was the ideal base for us for the week. We were travelling with a 15 month old child, so having our own space to relax was perfect.
We expected to be eating out quite frequently during our stay, but ended up spending quite a few nights cooking stuff in the well-equipped kitchen, and drinking beer in the living room. There are quite a few supermarkets nearby, as well as convenience stores, so you don't have to journey far to get the essentials.
We didn't really use public transport while we were there (only on the subway once) as the location is within walking distance of a large proportion of Toronto. Air Canada Centre is about 30 minutes walk away, and Casa Loma about 40. The added bonus is walking off the beer and seeing far more of Toronto!
Also nearby are some good running locations, which a few of our group used to keep our fitness routines ticking over while away. The Don River Trail (1km east) and Queens Park (1km West) were favourites.
The rooms are all very spacious, and the apple TVs were a god-send for keeping the child entertained. The fact that the internet was geo-unblocked was a bonus, as it meant we were able to watch the Scotland v Samoa rugby on BBC Scotland over breakfast at the weekend!
We didn't get a chance to use the deck upstairs, but it looked a good size, and would be stunning in the summer.
Calin and Vanessa were very contactable and quick to get back to us about any queries. I will definitely be recommending this to any friends travelling to Toronto in the future.
A simply fantastic house! Everything about our visit to this house was great and Calin T was a real pleasure to deal with throughout. The location is very good with excellent access to other parts of Toronto through both the metro and tram systems.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone searching the net for a base in Toronto.
Beautiful house , Great downtown location , clean and owner are very nice person. I highly recommended.
Location excellent, walking distance to most places or the metro just around the corner. Perfect for a family stay from children to grandparents.
We rented this property so that 3 generations of family could visit the city to attend a wedding. The house is lovely and comfortable with everything you need (for grandparents, parents and the children!). The location is perfect for seeing the city. The owners could not have been more helpful and responded immediately to any questions. Would like to return here someday for sure!
Had a fantastic trip to Toronto made home from home at the house for all of us and kids. Would definitely come back to stay. Highly recommend.
We loved our stay at Calin and Vanessa's property. The house is exactly as described and was ideal for our family (our teenager loved the downstairs retreat).
The house is very clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Everything we needed was available, including umbrellas and a shopping trolley.
The location is perfect. 500 metres to the nearest subway station and less than 50 to the Carlton St streetcar.
There is an huge supermarket 200 metres away and it is a short walk to Yonge St for shopping and dining.
Vanessa and Calin were very quick to reply to any questions and are easy going lovely people.
All up, a perfect experience.
