Wonderful Summer Home!
Wonderful Summer Home!
We spent 8 wonderful weeks in this beautiful home! Robyn and Kevin were gracious hosts and left us great information about the area and some thoughtful tips for a great summer (including helping us find a housekeeper and camps for our kids). We have 3 small kids, so the proximity of the school park and the big backyard all added to our experience. The house lay out was perfect for families with small kids and the rec room on the 2nd floor was a family meeting place all summer. We had an amazing summer here. We spent a lot of time on the shops / restaurants on Avenue Road and found the house to be super convenient for grocery shopping and errand running as well as walking access to some lovely restaurants. We did walk to the subway a few times, but it was 30 - 40 ish mins ... not perfect, but understand there is a bus that could have taken us there quicker if we had the inclination. Two minor issues - they do / did have two big dogs so if you have allergies or small kids crawling, please be aware going in that it's hard to get all the hair off the floors and furniture. Also, it was a particularly dry summer and the yard didn't have a sprinkler system at the time (may now) so the yard dried out early on. Otherwise, it was such a pleasure to meet Robyn and Kevin!

What a great holiday!
What a great holiday!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have only great things to say. Kevin and Robyn are wonderful hosts, ensuring we arrived with some fresh fruit waiting in the fridge, milk, butter and eggs, and even some delicious chocolates! They obviously care about their guests comfort. We did a lot of driving to nearby tubing hills and theatre etc. house is very central as the listing says and close to everything you need. We had one minor issue with the washing machine, but they came as soon as we called and dealt with it quickly. Same service you would find in a first class hotel. Great place you guys! Can't wait to get back there.

Great Family Home
We loved our stay in this open concept Whistler style home. The kitchen and living space is just awesome. We were visiting friends in Toronto and the location allowed us easy access to the entire city - zoo, wonderland, downtown - everywhere. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. We'll be back for sure.

About the owner: We are a young family looking to travel and have our beautiful house enjoyed by others while we are away. We spend a lot of time out doors and exploring Toronto, our location is perfect for both.
Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
Its the best part of Toronto to live in, close to downtown but in a quiet and safe neighbourhood with easy access to Ontario's beautiful outdoors (like Algonquin Park, the Bruce Trail and Niagara Escarpment).
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is custom built and resembles a house you would find at a ski resort. Huge great room to enjoy with your family and large bedrooms to ensure everyone has their space. You have easy access to Toronto's major highways and public transportation. We are a short drive from two of Toronto's top shopping malls, and a short walk to Avenue Rd, filled with restaurants, spa's, fitness gyms, ice cream shoppes and boutiques. This is a one of a kind vacation home with a treehouse in the backyard and a huge park next door. Very friendly and family oriented neighbourhood. Grocery store within walking distance as well as pharmacy, banks and Starbucks. There are many walk-in doctor's offices nearby in case medical assistance is needed.
