About Lynn Connell

I'm an artist, entrepreneur, producer, organizer and co- founder of Majengo Children's Home in Tanzania, and an Artist Retreat in Dunedin, a few hours north of Toronto born, living on the first floor of the home you will love. I love yoga, reading, walking (the Camino in 2016!), cooking, traveling...have been in the city all my life. I enjoy meeting people from around the world..and welcoming them into my home..Happy to draw easy maps, and direct you, if that is what you would like..Private, and hospitable...whatever works best!

Lynn Connell purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Lynn Connell chose University

I bought this property for its location, right in the heart of downtown Toronto, steps from the best restaurants, cafes, bookstores, galleries..Yorkville. Newly renovated and maintained beautifully...I love the beauty and quiet of my home, in spite of its being a few houses south of Bloor...incredible!

What makes this apartment unique

I love the big evergreen tree outside the 2nd floor living room window, especially in the winter, laden with snow. The back balcony is gorgeous in summer, facing west, with a great view of the sun setting, quiet, homey, comfy and safe…steps away from Bloor Street…with everything I need...

Lynn is so thoughtful, she even borrowed a stroller for our 21 month old son! Fantastic rental, would definitely stay there again! Amazing location, in the heart of Toronto but quiet and peaceful. Great beds, living room, deck, kitchen. We loved it! Thanks Lynn for a wonderful stay!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I stayed at this two-storey rental for four nights. Excellent location--near everything if you enjoy walking, and near buses/streetcars/subway for those who prefer mass transit.

Lots of room for everyone--very large and comfortable upstairs bedroom and sitting area, and living room/bedroom/well-equipped kitchen downstairs. Two bathrooms with stacking washer/dryer in one of them--very convenient. A small and sunny rooftop deck with patio table and BBQ were also available.

Helpful notes located throughout the house. Maps and magazines available.

The homeowner was very gracious and helpful. We even enjoyed a breakfast together.

Very highly recommended for those who need to be in the downtown core and want to experience all the ethnic communities nearby.

Could not be better!

  • 5 of 5

Lynn has been the ideal host. My son and I are setting him up for U of T and took this as a base to introduce ourselves to Toronto. The location is in the best part of the Annex, meters from Bloor Street with shops and restaurants, near the St George's U of T campus and close to the trams on Spadina etc. We will stay here again.

It was great! Everything - house, location and of course the city itself!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this place! The house is very comfortable, location is just perfect: everything is in walking distance!

Lynn is a very nice person and a wonderful host. She did everything to make our stay even better! When she learned that we would arrive late she went to the market and bought groceries for us! She also put out toys and rented a Disney movie for our children!

We have the best memories about this place!
