              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We live 1 1/2 hrs north of Toronto in the country. This apt has been our urban escape for years and we love it. It's bright, happy and located in our favorite part of Toronto. We have recently renovated the 3rd floor apt (previously used for long-term rentals) and have moved upstairs. We come down to the city approximately every 1-2 weeks. We have used VRBO ourselves and hope to provide guests a comfortable, stress free experience with easy availability to us at all times.

              Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
              Living on a farm, relatively isolated, is our baseline choice for living. However, intermittently, it's interesting and fun to immerse ourselves in an urban environment and our property is what we consider a perfect location to do so. We've traveled extensively and although each location is unique, Queen st w. Toronto is our favorite, due primarily to the multi-ethnic aspect of the place and proximity to various interesting venues.
