Had a great experience. Location was fantastic - close to the Danforth and TTC.

Very spacious with all the amenities of home. Warm welcome by hosts.

Would definitely stay here again.

Great place, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family of four and was perfect for our twin three-year-old boys who took full advantage of all of the toys and books that were available for their use. There was plenty of room to move around during our almost three-week stay, and Justin and Gemma were fantastic hosts. They were available to respond to any questions or concerns. They even helped us borrow a double stroller from one of their neighbors in this remarkable community after the airline lost the one we were traveling with. We had a lot of fun at the park nearby, and the other neighbors in the area were quite friendly. We put the kitchen to full use, and it had everything that we needed to prepare all of our meals from scratch. It is in a great location with nearby food markets, restaurants and within an easy walk to the subway and bus station. We highly recommend this property and would stay here again.

Welcoming, charming, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for more than one week with my wife and 2 kids and we had a lovely time in this appartement, the owners are very welcoming and do their best to help you and make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Even if it's a basement apartment, the way it was design makes it bright and confortable.

The neibourhood is very nice, family friendly and you can find everything you need but if you want to go downtown, the subway station is only 5 minutes from the apartment.

I would definitely recommand this place!

Spacious, clean & everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 11 nights during February 2016. We are from the Montreal area in Quebec, Canada and were in town for medical treatment. We were very happy with the place! It was spacious, clean and had everything we could possibly need: a big screen TV, Netflix, DVD player, big wide couches, blankets, stove, washer & dryer, dishwasher, nice bathroom, cooking utensils (we brought our own groceries to prepare meals) & there were portable heaters for extra warmth. The place looked very nice, nicer than our own home actually!

We were even provided with a handy binder indicating how everything works and the nearest restaurants, supermarkets, public transit & tourist attractions. The area was very convenient; it's a quiet dead-end road a 1-min drive away from Danforth street which had lots of restaurants, cafes & convenience stores. Gemma was very accommodating if we texted her with any questions or needed something. She and her husband moved their cars so we could have a parking spot right in front of the house.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area! There is even an extra bedroom if you have children or an extra person with you. I was very impressed and am glad I did not stay at a hotel which would've been double or triple the price!

What a great space! Fabulous Hosts

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely unit. There were two adults and two small children and we had more than enough space for everyone. Most everything we needed was included and the owners were very accomodating, even providing childrens toys and games. A short walk took us to shopping and cafes as well as the train to anywhere. We would certainly recommend a stay to anyone wanting a taste of "Greek Town" . Thank you Gemma and Justin for all your help and information.

The property is located in Greektown, which is a bustling area in the East End of Toronto, home to a long strip of boutique shopping and many bars, restaurants & cafes. It is home to The Taste of The Danforth which is a huge festival that occurs one weekend every year in August.

There are a number of fantastic parks within 10 minutes walk, many of which have splash pads or wading pools in the summer.

There is a free outdoor swimming pool at Monarch park which is a 10 minute walk from the property.

We live only a couple of minutes from the subway, which can take you to all of the must see areas of the City within 10-15 minutes.

We also live 1km from the Beach and swimming. This area also host the Beaches Jazz Festival for 10 days in July.

We are 15 minutes from the Theater district, Entertainment District and some of the best restaurants and bars in the world!
