Toronto apartment description

WALK SCORE = 100 out of 100....a WALKERS PARADISE! Soaring cathedral ceilings and 3-sided gas fireplace add great ambiance to this loft in the sky! Great open-plan kitchen with four comfy bar stools are super for entertaining.

Living room opens to great deck with south and west facing city-scape! Create sumptuous meals on your own gas barbecue!

The upper portion of this great suite is basically a one bedroom apartment on the third floor of the building. The second bedroom, with full ensuite bath is on the level below where you will also find a washer/dryer and a powder room. This division is great for couples sharing. Both bedrooms are a good size. One bedroom has a split king size bed which can be set as a regular king size bed or can be split into 2 single beds. The other has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have flat screen tvs. The master has 2 window-seats overlooking the street.

The kitchen area is fully equipped and has a third skylight.
The dining area can seat up to six. We prefer rentals of 4 people, however, there is a queen size sofa bed being added in July, so we will be able to accommodation up to 6 people. Three bathrooms!

We have no onsite parking but rent underground spaces in the the apartment building just across the street.

The neighourhood is pleasantly tree-lined and very pretty, a mix of single family homes, apartments and a few businesses in Victorian interesting mixture.

There are so many restaurants and shops to walk to. Walk to the famous Yorkville area, shop the trendy Bloor Street designer stores, or walk to the Eaton Centre. Most Toronto hospitals are within a 5-15 minutes walk.

The ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), the University of Toronto, and Ryerson University are an easy walk.

This apartment is normally rented on a monthly basis but we are willing to rent shorter term, minimum 3 nights, when it fits between longer rentals. We will not normally reserve a very short stay too far ahead if it appears likely we can rent monthly.

Our monthly rates are quite reduced from our nightly rates!

Also, if you just require a one bedroom suite, we can close off the second bedroom (or possibly put you in another smaller suite in the building) . We also have access to other furnished rental suites that may be available, so please email your dates and we will try to accommodate you!

Please phone me if you have questions. DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY to anyone that asks. We only accept credit card or email transfers. We do not offer discounts for payment in full up front. We only require one night deposit by credit card to confirm your booking. Balance is due on arrival. Beware of scammers!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: I currently live outside Toronto in Muskoka with my newly retired partner. We have both cottaged here for many years. I purchased my 5-plex in Toronto after a divorce in 1997 and have run a business known as Gloucester Suites. We rent fully furnished, executive suites, for short term stays. I have very much enjoyed the many guests we have had over the years, a few have become good friends! I still get a Christmas card every year from my first guest! After a few years of successful operation of Gloucester Suites I expanded my service to include representation for private owners, so I actually have an inventory of possible rentals. Most private owners prefer longer rentals, but some are flexible. (Don't worry about what the calendar says! Please send me your request!)

                          Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
                          This a GREAT 5-plex in a vibrant area of Toronto. I purchased it after I divorced and was looking for a good investment. I have thoroughly enjoyed running my furnished rental business for over 10 years! Although I now live outside Toronto I very much enjoy my frequent visits to the city.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          I love that I can walk to many shops, restaurants and entertainment. So nice compared to my rural location where I have to drive everywhere! On November 30, 2011 the NEW, spectacular grocery store, LOBLAWS, opened in the former historic location of Maple Leaf Gardens! It is just five blocks away, has parking and any food item you can imagine. An exciting shopping experience with a huge touch of history and memorabilia! Visitors can actually stand a Center Ice.......a big blue circle on the floor!
