About Lynda Harding

I grew up in the Beaches area but returned after the children flew the nest. I love the area. My home is a great joy to me and I am pleased to share it with you while visiting Toronto.

Lynda Harding purchased this house in 2009

Why Lynda Harding chose Toronto

This home charmed me with its fabulous designer kitchen and a great backyard for entertaining and gardening. The front porch has been my ideal relaxation spot to curl up with a good book.

What makes this house unique

I so enjoy being close to everything, whether it is a subway ride downtown, or biking paths along the waters edge. Great restaurants and bars in the area plus 3 grocery stores within a couple of blocks. Ride your bike, walk, sit on a patio or simply gaze at the garden while relaxing in the wonderful backyard.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this house justice - it's huge and equipped with absolutely everything that you might need. A good selection of grocery stores nearby and within walking distance to the boardwalk. Lynda was really helpful and gave lots of useful recommendations. She provided a crib and a high chair for our little boy and could not have been a better host.

Great Location

The home had everything you need. We stayed for a long weekend during the Jazz Festival and sightseeing in Toronto. A mere minutes from downtown center.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for us to stay in for our week in Toronto! The house is in a great location, convenient to everything. The outside has a beautiful fenced in back yard with a 2 level deck and grill which we thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you for everything Lynda!

Lovely home in an ideal location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our 16 month old daughter for 4 nights at the end of our Canada vacation. The house was lovely - very well equipped as well as clean and tidy. The owner provided us with a highchair and travel cot for our daughter which meant we didn't have to bring any with us. The house is in a quiet neighbourhood but only a few blocks away from shops and restaurants. There are also great public transport links into Toronto - we used the GO train which took 11 mins into downtown Toronto but there are bus, subway and streetcar links nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying here again.

Great place to stay in Toronto!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Toronto to visit some friends and family and loved staying at this house. It was clean, well equiped and provided everything we needed for us. The owner was able to provide us with a play pen and an high chair for our two year old son so we didn't have to bring them in our trip. The house is very close to the beaches core area so it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the boardwalk and beach. We would definately come back for our next trip in Toronto! Thanks!

Wish we could've stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home in a great neighborhood. It's in walking distance to just about anything you need, including the lake. The home was clean, neat, and organized; and there was even some staple goods (butter, milk, coffee) made available to us. Comfort even extends to the outdoors, with a wonderful back yard space to sit and relax.

Will definitely try to book this home again the next time we visit Toronto.
