Toronto townhome description

Unpack your bags and stay in style in our downtown oasis. Enjoy a comfortable and unique accommodation complete with a big screen TV, Netflix (US) on the Apple TV or play a game on the XBOX 360. Sip your coffee in your own private lounge area overlooking a private courtyard, hidden away from the noise of the city, yet easily stroll to the clubbing district, Dundas square or the Eaton Centre or the famous St.Lawrence market in just minutes.

Our home is a split two level townhouse with a mezzanine balcony overlooking a living room featuring a massive 26 foot cathedral ceiling facing a private and quiet courtyard. It is located about 10 minute walk away from the city's centre, Dundas Square where numerous concerts take place. We are also but 15 minute walk from the world famous St.Lawrence Market, voted best food market in the world by National Geographic Magazine 2012.

If you want to experience Toronto, there isn't a more perfect a place to do it from than your very own private and fully stocked adventure layer. Zoom to the club scene in minutes, climb up the CN tower, eat 5 lobsters in one sitting, see China town, drink in Italy town, argue in Greek town, wrestle a dolphin in Portugal town.. Actually the last one was just a test. We don't actually have dolphins in Toronto.

We can easily accommodate 4 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 5 children (that sounds stressful) or even 6 adults who don't mind being a bit cozy.



As Canadian cellphone plans are some of the most expensive in the developed world an optional smartphone (Google Nexus 4) can be made available, complete with unlimited data plan, GPS/Google maps and local calling/texting - for an extra 7$ per day. Tweet and upload photos to Facebook carefree. Alternatively, if your phone is compatible with our carrier, we can rent out the sim card for only 5$ per day. Please let us know when you book.

** Please read **

We have changed the way we handle damage deposits on VRBO - instead of charging the 300$ damage deposit upfront as we have in the past, we will charge it to a major credit card (or in cash) upon arrival and refund it to you upon departure. The reason is because we have so many international guests and it has become complicated to return funds to overseas accounts.

                  Stroll through one of the many parks and green spaces in a newly designated area in Toronto known as The Garden District. The district is located between Wellesley and Queen streets; Yonge and Sherbourne streets and encompasses many gardens and parks.

                  We live in a developing neighbourhood, a departure from Toronto's posh west end. Because of its grittiness our neighbourhood is often the setting for many Hollywood movies. Our section of the Garden District is soon to be designated a Heritage Conservation District. HCDs are designated because the areas they protect are considered to be historically or culturally significant and require special care and attention in the planning process to ensure that they are preserved for future generations.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I'm in my mid 30s and I love photography and delicious foods. I also love photographing delicious foods and eating delicious foods but not while being photographed myself eating delicious foods. I love love love travelling and meeting new people and experiencing new flavours and colours and sounds. I also hide from loud noises.

                  Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
                  You want to stay in our propriety because a) it is central b) it is quiet c) it is stunningly serene d) it makes baby pandas happy. Vanessa and I really like the gritty feel of the East end of Toronto. It very central and its relatively quiet compared to the posh west end. Not that we have anything against clubbing and party goers, its just that we're.. old now, so we appreciate peacefulness and birds and hikes rather than a alcohol fuelled bar hopping extravaganza.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  The happiness of our guests is very important. We started hosting in 2012 and we've have almost 100 guests during this time and each and every one was special and unique. We've never had a negative review because we truly care that everyone that passes our threshold has a positive experience.
