Great location, mediocre experience
Pros: The location of this home is fantastic; it is within walking distance of the subway and has many great restaurants surrounding it. The home is nice and comes with all the furniture and appliances you should need. Grant, the owner provided fresh flowers for us upon arrival.
Cons: Every ~4 minutes, the TV would reset itself... this made watching TV pretty unbearable. The couch is tiny and pretty uncomfortable to sit on for long periods of time. We had some difficulties communicating with the owner. He forgot to give us our parking pass upon arrival but was very nice and refunded us the money it cost us to pay for parking the first night. He informed us that a plumber would be arriving during our stay, but the plumber arrived hours ahead of the time we were told. Upon arrival, Grant and the plumber just walked into the home without making sure we were decent or ready (I was in the shower at the time). The communication when the plumber left was also very unclear as to whether he was finished or coming back later. Needless to say, we felt like we had very little privacy in the home.
Really comfortable, spacious, and well-situated house in Greektown.
My brother and I stayed here for a week on the occasion of our niece's wedding. We found it very comfortable, and quite quiet, and it is very well equipped with everything one might need, two comfortable beds and a quality shower being particularly important. While it was almost unbearably hot and humid during our stay, this unit has high ceilings and stayed fairly cool, such that we hardly used the A/C. Sitting in the shaded back garden was also nice, as was the close proximity (150 metres) from the Subway station... a subway that gets you to most of the main parts of Toronto's downtown in only 10-20 minutes. All in all an excellent choice as a place to stay, this house and the neighborhood it's in.
Great convenient and comfortable.
Just stayed here for a week. The place is very nice, comfortable and close to subway and greektown. Grant went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Definitely recommended.
Lovely home awesome location
My family and I had a wonderful stay. The kitchen had everything we needed for us to prepare all our meals at the house. The TTC station was a very short walk down the street and gave us easy access to the rest of downtown Toronto. Grant was a fantastic host. He responded quickly and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.
perfect location and confortable place
As a family with two young boys, we found Grant's apartment very comfortable. With fine weather throughout our stay, we appreciated the charming garden....not to mention Withrow Park and Riverdale Park. Situated just a few steps away from Pape Station, one has easy access to the center of Toronto, via Subway. We took the 72B bus all the way to Queen's Quay, to take the ferry to the Toronto Islands, walk over to the CN Tower and the old round house (a train garage now converted into a museum and a micro-brewery). The 185 bus takes you to the Ontario Science Centre, where one should really spend the day! as it is GREAT!
Our beds were comfortable, and the heat worked when it started to get a bit chilly at night.
The bathroom could have been a bit cleaner, and the towels smelled musty, so I washed them and dried them in the laundry room.
All in all, we highly recommend this apartment (2 floors, bedrooms down below). Situated two steps to a peaceful and charming residential area (where I spent my childhood), and in the heart of Greek Town, with a variety of choice restaurants, Grant's place serves as a retreat from the highrise cement blocks, dizzying lights, and noise of the downtown core....which remains just a Subway ride away.
Comfy well appointed apartment in good location
We recently spent eight nights in this spacious well equipped, well located and comfortable apartment. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality cooking utensils and a welcome supplies of Tupperware containers as well as pantry basics. There is a good shower head with easy to operate controls and a good pressure and a plentiful supply of towels. There is an excellent TV satellite and package and the use of a landline phone .Transport facilities were excellent- a few mins walk from Pape subway station and buses stopping virtually outside the door . Basics supermarket and a bottle shop ten mins walk along Pape. Some nice shops and restaurants a short walk away on the interesting area of The Danforth. It felt very safe. Grant the owner was around for part of our stay and was friendly and very helpful with local tips and info. He has been great to deal with online- always replying promptly with any queries . The reason I have only given four rather than five stars is that there is limited natural light anywhere apart from the first reception room which gets light in the mornings. There is a pleasant garden at the back exclusively for visitors with a seating area and a barbecue and several mature trees which provides a small amount of dappled sun - this is great if you like shady areas to sit in the summer. The bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs the former are spacious with plenty of storage provided . The bed in the back room was very comfy but quite short - you might struggle with it if you are tall.
Overall we had a great time in Toronto and the apartment provided a comfortable, relaxing base for our travels.
The house is located near the Danforth in central Rverdale which has many shops, cafes, restaurants and night-life. A 5 minute walk to the subway easily accesses the parks, beaches, museums and galleries of Toronto.
