Property description

Our gorgeous Bluff Suite is the perfect location whilst you're visiting Toronto. Everyone loves it, as you can see from the reviews! During the winter you can rent for "months" if you're in Toronto for a short term contract, renovating your home, or if you need a temporary residence between 'selling' and 'buying'! This suite is just a stone’s throw from downtown Toronto and the trendy Beach. This 1000 square foot, second-floor unit, overlooks Lake Ontario, and includes both period furniture and modern amenities. Our three bedrooms consist of a king, queen, and double bed and there is a pull-out sofa in the living room. The living room (15' x 20') features a stocked book nook (for trading!), an electric fireplace and a reclining love seat. Other amenities include flat screen cable TV, a DVD player, and broadband-based WiFi. Imagine cooking while looking at the lake from our fully-equipped kitchen - all utensils and appliances: toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, stove, fridge/freezer and microwave. Groceries can be purchased at one of the nearby major food chains. There are two bathrooms - one decorated in "spa" colours and the other having a "nature" theme. Of course, no home-away-from-home would be complete without laundry - there is a washer and dryer right in the apartment!

Our suite provides about 20 feet of viewing over the backyard with Lake Ontario immediately beyond. Sorry, no fishing or boating as we are on a 350 foot bluff! Our vantage point is perfect for watching the sunrise, storms, and rainbows. The moon rising from the lake on full-moon nights is simply indescribable and must be experienced.

The Bluff Suite is more, however, than creature comforts and a phenomenal view. We are very proud of our cottage-in-the-city environment, just fifteen minutes drive from downtown Toronto. Feel the peace and serenity offered by our secluded paradise - flowers, the gentle lake breezes and the quiet community atmosphere. While joggers and dog-walkers make good use of the neighborhood streets, often the loudest noise to be heard is the birdsong – Canada geese, blue jays, cardinals, and sometimes baltimore orioles. Raccoons regularly peek in the 2nd floor windows and occasionally deer and foxes are spotted in the backyard.

We are just a few minutes drive from Bluffer's Park Marina where you can enjoy a wonderful meal or pub fare while the boats go in and out of the marina. In season, you may want to charter a boat and captain and enjoy fishing for salmon or lake trout. You will enjoy exploring the trendy Beaches neighborhood with it’s Boardwalk, beach volleyball, walking & cycling trails, off-leash area for dogs, fine dining, shops, & spas...amenities abound! Enjoy walking, hiking or cycling along the scenic lakefront, stroll in the park, drop into a sidewalk café, catch some rays, explore the quaint homes in the neighborhood, or simply people-watch.

Your lovely apartment includes use of our spacious deck, hot tub, 2 bicycles and helmets, the daily newspaper, and free parking.

Our suite is great for travelers, corporate or wedding guests, the bridal party, people who are escaping their own home renovations, locals who want a vacation without leaving town, people who are relocating, and others.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a 6th generation Canadian and my ancestors settled in small-town Ontario. As a military brat and in the process of becoming educated, I have resided in various parts of Canada, the USA, France, and Australia. My world travels have taken me to fascinating places and I've met wonderful people along the way. In finding this location, a peaceful 'country' setting so close to downtown, we are 'home at last.' You, too, are welcome to come “home” to The Bluff - stay for a week, a month, or as long as you like, and your dog is welcome, too!

Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
On-the-Bluff is your 'gateway to downtown Toronto' and beyond! By car, it will take you 15 minutes to get downtown and the subway is close at hand, too. Toronto boasts a diverse array of culture, entertainment, world class and local shopping and food. Our friendly 'city of neighborhoods' includes Little India, Chinatown, Little Italy, Greektown, Leslieville, Yorkville, the Gay Village, the Annex, Little Portugal, Koreatown and more. Other attractions include the Hockey Hall of Fame, the CN Tower, the St. Lawrence Market, the Toronto Islands, the Art Gallery of Ontario (famously renovated by Frank Geary), and the Royal Ontario Museum with it’s controversial “Lee-Chin Crystal” addition. Who wouldn't want to purchase a home in this amazing city!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Venturing just outside the city limits is Canada's Wonderland, the new spectacular Hindu temple, and our world-class zoo. Outside of Toronto there are many year-round attractions, including everyone’s must-see, Niagara Falls, Algonquin Park, and Casino Rama. Consider The Bluff Suite your home base!
