A beautiful slice of paradise in the heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

We are a young family travelling with 2 children. We really enjoyed the patio and the location (which was SO VERY close to the most amazing splash park/playground ever). This location was also very close to stores, restaurants, the liquor store and grocery store enabling us to purchase food and bring it home to eat. The owners and their extended family/friends were very friendly and kind. My kids loved the free cable television and wifi. The unit is clean and shabby chic. It is very good value for the money we paid and the privacy we felt we got. My only suggestion for the owner is to perhaps leave some written instructions in the unit regarding how to operate the microwave, what the do with garbage, where laundry is, and how to work the toilet which is a bit slow to refill, and check out as we weren't quite sure where to leave the keys. We figured this all out in the time we were there but it took a bit of trial and error and asking around. Also, dish soap, paper towels, extra toilet paper would be a plus. This was a bit of an added expense we didn't expect but overall a really really nice stay! (p.s. we left extra dish soap and garbage bags behind for the next person. enjoy!!) Thanks again for a pleasant stay!

Very convenient accommodations, with it's own slightly funky charm!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment worked well for us (3 generations traveling together). It was easy to get to the bus stop and into Toronto for a day, also convenient to the QEW to head for a day in Cambridge and Guelph. The neighborhood was charming and walk-able (with a playground about 200 meters away!) The lake terraces and the balcony on the apartment itself were great we had morning coffee overlooking the lake each morning, and went down to the terrace with takeout several nights.

The apartment was reasonably clean, though yes, the furniture was a bit worn, the microwave didn't work and there were several burnt out light bulbs in the bathroom. The overall effect was a sort of faded European charm. Since we weren't doing much cooking we didn't really check out the state of the pots and pans. It was very nice to have a french press (we brought our own beans, but there was some "emergency" coffee in the cupboard.). The fridge and freezer worked well, which was the most important thing for us.

Les and Barbara were very nice and welcoming, and got us dish soap when we asked for it (I never did mention the light bulbs, we just worked around them). They were very sweet to the youngest member of our party (4 years old) and even put a teddy bear in one of the bedrooms.

It isn't a shiny brand new condo in a Toronto high-rise with all sparkly new things, but it has more character than that would and it served our needs very well at a reasonable price. We'd definitely book it again!

We stayed at this property for 4 nights and loved it. The waterfront patio is stunning and we spent a lot of time there. We were able to have some family members over as well which was amazing. The unit itself was comfortable and well equipped with a lovely balcony facing the water. Parking was free as was Wi-Fi. There were several restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store, Shoppers, LCBO and Beer Store. We spent lots of time walking through the many parks in the area. Les and Barbara were perfect hosts - very helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend this property.

Fantastic location, Fantastic Flat

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well maintained & the facilities are superb. We went for a holiday & brother’s marriage in Canada. After the marriage we decided to host a party, we invited 18 people and hosted the party on stunning patio with beautiful lake view. ( Family enjoyed Kayaking also).

Now where else it is possible for a foreigner to host that kind of party in a foreign land.

The owner was very nice & helpful treated us well.

This is simply home away from home.

Thank you Les & Maggie for wonderful holiday.
