YOUR OWN SPACE, YOUR OWN TIMELINE
Play and Chill is a cheerful, freshly furnished inner-city cottage nestled in a popular community. A scenic five minute walk along the Avon River connects you to quaint shops, flavorful cafes and restaurants, world class theater and bustling pubs.
At your home away from home, enjoy your own private parking, two bedrooms with en-suites and smart TVs, a third room with sectional pullout sofa and 1/2 bath. Should you want to cook, the kitchen is well equipped with what you will need including a gas range. Relax in the living/dining area warmed by a gas fireplace. On warm summer nights, lounge on the front porch or outside garden patio.
We are a family of five who moved to Stratford from Toronto in 2010. After living in big cities from Oslo to Accra to NYC, we needed a break from the noise and smell of the big city. At times, we miss the city but we do love the benefits of a small place including easy access to beaches.

Stratford provides visitors an oasis from the big city while offering many of the comforts of a big city - great restaurants, music and live theatre. Play and Chill, a five minute stroll to the action, is cozy like a cottage while offering a jacuzzi tub, expresso machine, smart t.v, gas stove, gas fireplace, air conditioning, BBQ and many other comforts. You can either shut the door and stay inside, play in the city or head out mountain biking or to the beach. Even better, take advantage of all three.
Parking is easy, the house is large enough to accommodate a full family, the location is perfect - close to downtown, the conservation area, the Shakespearan Gardens, a river for fishing and a sports field and running track.
This is a very well-appointed house with friendly owners right next door. It was everything we'd hoped for, and more!
We spent our girls weekend at this lovely home. It had everything we needed. The bedrooms are incredibly comfortable and Bruce was so accommodating and welcoming. We loved it.
We walked to the theatre and to restaurants. Location is perfect to walk along the river.
Absolutely no complaints and we will definitely return.
Bruce has a lovely home with everything you need for a short or long stay.
Comfortable, bright environment and easy walking distance to all the attractions in Stratford.
Bruce was very pleasant and met us at the house to welcome us.
I highly recommend this house for your next visit to Stratford.
We recently stayed in this lovely cottage for a couple of nights on a women's getaway to Stratford. Booking and directions were simple in terms of getting in to the property as the owners are right close by and checked in with us over the weekend to ensure we were happy and cozy. The location is about a two minute walk to downtown and has across the street access to the river walk. It is an ideal spot. However, better than that, the home is decorated beautifully. We loved the feel and each one of three of us had our own room and bathroom. One of the rooms is on the main floor which appears to be a sunroom with a pull out bed and powder room. One of us chose that room as it was very cool for sleeping and the others were very comfortable up stairs with two bedrooms and each with their own bath.
Beds were comfortable and I would highly recommend this for a comfortable stay. Thank you, Bruce for creating such an oasis in a really fun and lively city - the shopping is superb as are the restaurants (although we chose to order in both nights as we were so relaxed and comfortable in the house). Would absolutely stay there again - and likely will. Susan - London, Ontario
We were five women coming to Stratford for a weekend of shopping and plays. Our stay in Bruce's house was just perfect. The house is immaculate. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms and showers wonderful, and the kitchen well equipped. The location was perfect as we could walk to all that Stratford had to offer within five minutes. We could not have asked for anything more. Bruce was very helpful, and suggested a wonderful stop for us on our way home. We would highly recommend this house and hope to stay there again.
Are there enough words to describe our fabulous experience in this house??
Location-Terrific. A beautiful neighborhood and a short walk to downtown and the attractions.
Layout and Decor-Great to have an ensuite bathroom with both bedrooms upstairs and a third bathroom downstairs. Comfortable living space with the living room, dining room and porch. The kitchen was really well stocked with nice cookware, dishes, flatware and glasses. Every-thing was in top notch condition. The house is beautifully decorated.
Communication-The owner was terrific at communicating with us ahead of time and was so welcoming and helpful during this stay.
I would highly recommend this property. Two thumbs up!
