Cozy one bedroom basement suite located in Varsity View. Quiet and safe area, only two blocks away from the U of S and a short walk to the downtown district. This suite includes all the features of a home, so all you need is your suitcase! To ensure privacy there is a separate entrance located on the side of the house. This basement suite features high ceilings and big, bright windows, hardwood, tile and carpet floors, central air conditioning, forced air and electric heat, top quality bedding and furnishings, original art work and tons of books. One of the best features is our backyard that has been on several garden tours. It includes a variety of interesting plants, a fish pond, large stone fireplace and three private seating areas with comfortable outdoor furniture. This area is perfect for morning coffee, late afternoon tea, or a glass of wine next to the fireplace!
We have a very quiet home although we do have a black Lab upstairs living with us. We prefer non smokers and non partyiers as we live upstairs. You are welcome to have guests over as long as they are reasonably quiet. We are happy to provide extras upon request as we have another bedroom in the basement immediately adjacent to the suite which can be used as an office or extra bedroom. If you need something that is not in the suite, chances are we have it upstairs and can provide it for you ie unusual cooking utensils, basic spices etc.

About the owner: The kids have moved out!!! We are a professional couple who would like to reduce our professional commitments and focus on more home time. We have a beautiful home close to campus with an amazing garden, fish pond, outdoor fireplace, all accessible to our guests. We like to travel, garden and cook. As hosts, we are available but non intrusive. We have travelled all over the world and when we travel, we generally tend to rent accommodation similar to ours so we appreciate the extra touches in the kitchen , or the living room or the bathroom, which make a trip, whether for business or holiday, a little more relaxing. Forget hotels, stay in our place and enjoy a real home!!!
