Toronto apartment description

At the edge of the downtown core, Bloor West Village is hip and trendy with an eclectic mix of food and fun. It is well known for its colourful and interesting shops, specialty markets, great cafes, bars and world-class restaurants. A short drive to downtown Toronto and just steps from the subway, it is a very popular neighborhood enjoyed by visitors and residents alike.
High Park, the jewel of Toronto’s parks and recreation system is nearby. Spanning 400 acres with trails, waterfront, picnic areas, sport facilities, gardens, playgrounds and a zoo, it is a key connection to the Martin Goodman Trail and Toronto’s Waterfront, one of the top 100 most innovative and inspiring in the world.
Take a stroll or use the bikes provided and follow the trail to Sunnyside Beach, the Harbourfront Centre and Ontario Place and onto a ferry to Toronto Island events, galleries, festivals and shows.
Everything you need for an amazing and memorable visit to Toronto is waiting. Please note that due to some personal travel considerations we may not be available to host stays less than 15 days this summer, please contact us for more information. We look forward to serving you.
