About the property

Spacious studio apartment sleeps (2-4)

Monthly rentals are preferred in this charming, spacious (600 sq ft) and bright pied-a-terre in a lovely home on a quiet tree-lined street in the beautiful Summerhill neighbourhood. Just steps from some of the city's best shops and restaurants, it is a short walk to Yorkville, Yonge and Bloor, the ROM, and the university. Three subway stations are just a 5 minute walk from the house. Getting around couldn't be easier. And yet, it is so quiet, you won't believe you are just a block from Yonge Street, and the beautiful Ramsden Park with public tennis courts and an outdoor ice rink (in season). Cycle through Rosedale, wander around the fascinating Mount Pleasant Cemetery where some of Canada's most famous men and women are buried. Have a latte at the excellent cafe on the corner and watch the world go by.

The newly renovated suite is perfect for singles or a couple. Make breakfast and light meals in the equipped kitchen. Take a relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub. Do laundry in your suite.

It is the perfect spot from which to enjoy your stay in Toronto.

We really loved this beautiful apartment, everything was exactly as it was shown on the site. It's located in a lovely neighborhood where you can find everything you need. Also close to subway and bus. Diane is very kind and always available to answer you. We would like to stay here on our next trip to Toronto.

Outstanding hospitality and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time in this lovely little light-filled apartment. The location was perfect, only a couple blocks to a subway transit station, even closer to some amazing restaurants, a Whole Foods market on the day we just wanted to fend for ourselves and in a safe and walk-able neighborhood of beautiful homes. The apartment's amenities were everything we needed and quite comfortable, the wi-fi worked great, the coffee and tea she chose were outstanding ;-p We would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone!

A comfortable and clean place with great location

  • 5 of 5

I've had a great time staying here for a month. The place is very clean, it has all necessities you might need to feel yourself at home, and Diane was very friendly and helpful.

Whether you're coming for a short vacation or you're looking for a long-term stay, I would definitely recommend this place as one of the best in this area.

Charming, spotless, light-filled apartment

  • 5 of 5

Proved perfect for us as we needed a place for 4 nights with our Toronto home under renovation. Fantastic, heart of the city (near Summerhill) on a gorgeous tree-lined street with Victorian houses on either side, street parking for our 2 cars and a patisserie 2 blocks away. Light filled designer apartment with kitchen, full laundry and great shower. Will keep top of mind when a 'staycation' is required (with parks, top restaurants and boutiques nearby). Have already booked the apartment for my mother's visit next spring (when the private garden will be in bloom and terrace will be at its best).

Great place in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

This studio is exactly as advertised: comfortable and convenient! It's in a nice residential neighborhood, with a short walk to the subway. There is on street parking available for a (very) reasonable price (just ask Diane for the info), and it doesn't alternate sides - so you can leave you're car parked for your entire stay and use public transportation (like we did). The pastry shop on the corner is awesome (but sadly wasn't open on Sunday). All in all, a great experience.

Car: not necessary

Home to some of the finest food purveyors and design shops in the city, this neighbourhood has it all within walking distance. Great restaurants, cozy pubs, charming cafes, it is all here. Enjoy the finest the city has to offer. Steps from the Yonge Street subway, you can get around the city as easily as a local. Or walk to the fabulous shopping on Bloor Street,the Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma. Wander the trails through the Rosedale ravine. Visit the organic farmers makret at the Brickworks. Or just hang out at Caffe Doria, watching the wolrd go by.
