Never again

  • 1 of 5

Very cluttered apartment type housing. Uncomfortable bedding, towels and sheets that smelled like mildew. No air conditioning and windows that I don't think have ever been cleaned. When speaking with the owner about no A/C and the possibility of providing a fan I was told if I'm hot to jump in the lake to cool off. Are you kidding me. Luckily for me I didn't spend much time there just uncomfortable nights sleep and smelly towels. I suggest looking elsewhere.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Les and Barbara were welcoming and informative. The flat is beautiful, clean, and has a view that can't be beat. My husband and I took bike rides on the lakefront paths, our daughters used Les's kayak to explore. Toronto is a beautiful and interesting city with a lot to see and do. Easy to fill a week with tourist activities.

Interesting Place - Beautiful View - Kind Hosts

  • 4 of 5

This house is at the end of a nice neighborhood, where there always seemed to be people walking/biking. We were happy to have the trolley (street car) stop nearby - but as it happened, there was construction on the tracks, so we could not use the trolley. The metro station to get fare cards was not close by - we ended up just driving into Toronto every day. It wasn't bad... The house is easy access to Lake Shore Drive, which goes directly into Toronto - it was quicker than going via the highway, which we did one day and got stuck in traffic. The view is lovely, and the apartment is clean and seems to have been recently updated (nice floors, kitchen cabinets, etc.). The beds are rather firm. The property owners are helpful and seem to be nice people. The building and grounds are not as up-to-date as the apartment. There is no AC but we were there in August and with the windows open, there was always a breeze - we were never uncomfortable.

Beautiful area and wonderful hosts

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and two of our adult children stayed at this property in late July 2017 for 4 days. We were on the top floor facing the lake and loved having the small balcony. We used the kayak, visited the nearby parks and beach, and generally did a lot of walking (by choice). The night view of the city of Toronto from one of the parks is really great. There was occasionally some nighttime noise coming from the mini "parkette" right next door, particularly on weekend. We also weren't aware that it was a multi-unit property; had to make sure we always had keys on us when out of the unit but it wasn't a problem. The apartment was very clean and nicely furnished. The hosts, Les and Barbara, live in another unit in the building and were wonderful. Super nice and helpful people.

Not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

The owners were friendly and helpful, but I did not expect this location to be a multi-unit apartment. Here's my breakdown.

THE GOOD: Unit easy to find and situated well for rapid access to the highway. Without traffic, we could arrive downtown in 20 minutes. We did not fly to Toronto, but the airport was also 15-20 minutes away. Unit is directly on Lake Ontario and surrounded by a lovely neighborhood. Lots of opportunity for walks outside and scenic views in the neighboring marina/common areas.

THE MARGINAL: The apartment had a curious mix of older and new-ish furniture, dishes, and decor. The entire unit is tired looking with cracks in walls and ceiling. The third "bedroom" was a children's size mattress in a room that seems to double as an office area because of a large bookcase and desk.

THE NOT SO GOOD: Cobwebs and spider webs (with spiders) in multiple areas. Cigarette butts on the balcony. No air conditioning or fans in bedrooms.
