Stay Where the Stars Reside- 1600SQFT PALACE IN THE SKY
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews

Apartment was lovely. Views were absolutely stunning. !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two items we thought Stephen and Rocky might consider. 1) Few more bathroom towels for guests arriving.

2) No real closet space to hang clothes. We used a portion of the front hall closet. Maybe wish to consider devoting the entire left section of the front hall closet for guests only. But we do not want those comments to detract from what we thought was a beautiful place to stay. Owners were also very accommodating with our questions. We loved that they told us to help ourselves to food items. They left a big bowl of fruit for us which was lovely. This rental worked out perfect for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you Claire for your review.. I have already asked our housekeeper to supply more towels in both bathrooms for our future guests. Thanks for bringing up this. The closet space issue is also valid. We do have a owners closet & a locker so I will take your advice & the closets space in front hall will be available for our guests. Thanks for the great review & I hope you will consider staying with us again the next time your in Toronto.

Beautiful condo

My daughter and I enjoyed the 2 bedroom condo. Spectacular views. Well furnished. Did not spend much time in the condo as it was a family reunion/baptism occasion, but the time there was very enjoyable. Would stay there again.

A terrific apartment; excellent location; and great amenities....loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week-long stay at this lovely apartment over Christmas this year. The location was absolutely ideal for our purposes and within walking distance of great restaurants and shops. We settled into the apartment with ease and were so grateful for the daily visits of the owners’ delightful Housekeeper. Just to have the space freshened up and linens changed was an unexpected treat. The views from the home are as advertised and we were so grateful for the quiet space after a busy day out. My husband really appreciated that there was a gym on the property – so handy. The next time we plan a trip to Toronto, we will certainly hope that we could look forward to another stay at “The 500”. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Like everyone else, I agree too that this pad is super chic, cool and incredibly spacious and manicured with utmost care unlike any other rental places and owners do let you have a fully stocked bar and kitchen at your discretion. I just loved laying in living room in the Evenings daily with a good book watching surrounding views. Really Stunning! Thx Rocky & Steve and please Thank Lieselda for cleaning my mess daily. She is a lov LH woman. cheers

Incredible Views Incredible Location Incredible Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My son in law and I spent 4 wonderful days in Toronto watching 3 Blue Jays games and one day of golf. Rocky and Steve's condo was the perfect place to start and end our very busy days. The views are breath taking, so much so one does not even mind that the bedroom window coverings do little to block out the light. Who cares with that view!! I've stayed in VRBO homes all over the world and this is the first one I can remember that the hosts make their entire home open and available to their guest. Wine, coffee, fresh fruit, peanut butter for your toast, bathroom name it if it's there go ahead and use it.Amazing amazing hosts.I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. Thanks so much Rocky and Steve! We are already planning our return trip!
