"Amazing apartment that went beyond our expectations.
Lovely, spotless, comfortable, affordable, convenient location, kind and helpful owners.
We spent our summer in the pied-a-terre, we had the best time one could have hoped. We found the apartment easily, the pictures don't even do it justice... such a wonderful place! Everything there is practical, there is a huge bathtub (which cannot be seen on the pictures), the garden is peaceful and very quiet, thus very enjoyable during the hot summer days. The only drawback being that the air-conditioning is monitored by the upstairs apartment. So be ready to have a pair of trainers and a jacket on hand even in the hottest days of summer if you have neighbors who love it very cold inside on such days.
Despite this negligible shortcoming, the location is perfect, 15 meters from the lively and vibrating College Street, but shed from its traffic and nuisance. There is a streetcar stop taking you downtown just across the street, a Starbucks coffee and an organic shop within slipper-radius, and countless bars and restaurants within walking distance. If you don't want to depend on the arbitrariness of the streetcar, it is possible to walk to Ossington subway station in less than 10 minutes. Just brilliant.
The owners were perfect as well, doing their best to make our Canadian experience an unforgettable one. Any problem/request, even tiny, was dealt with in a blink of an eye. They seemed very obliging and made us feel welcome.
We will definitely come back again, maybe next time trying one of the upstairs flats.
Thank you Jen and Dave for your hospitality, you made our summer the greatest so far!"
