About Lisa Burchartz

We are an Australian/ Canadian family of four who enjoy spending the summer overseas, and at our vacation property located outside of Toronto. Every July/August we vacate our primary residence at Yonge & St Clair and make it available to discerning guests who are looking for space, comfort, convenience and the ideal location to explore this wonderful city. We understand your requirements...are available to respond to your questions and have a trusted & experienced caretaker on call when we are not available to tend to matters ourselves.

Lisa Burchartz purchased this house in 2006

Why Lisa Burchartz chose North Toronto

Our property is available to guests every July and August only. The house is beautifully equipped and will feel like your home away from home for the duration of your visit.

Rose Park Drive is situated on a tree lined street in one of Toronto's most premiere/sought after neighborhoods. Just a few minutes walk away from everything you need, including grocery stores, high end boutiques & artisan shops, restaurants/ bars and playgrounds. It is central to Toronto life and an ideal family or group residence.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, family friendly backyard features a 'high end' outdoor lounge/ sofa, dining area, well maintained gardens and a trampoline and tree fort for the kids. A true, mid town oasis.

Age appropriate toys for boys and girls can be made available (by advance request only).

Baby items such as high chairs, port a cots etc, can be sourced through a local vendor at an additional cost to our guests. Please contact Lisa for details.

Fantastic house in a brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

What can add to the already glowing reviews posted? The house is fantastic with everything you could possibly need and in a lovely position, allowing you to relax away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, but within easy reach of the subway, restaurants and walking trails. However what really makes this property stand out is the fact that it is obviously a much loved family home, you relax and feel welcome from the first moment you arrive.

The owner Lisa is a brilliant host, she genuinely wants you to have the best possible holiday in her home. From the lovely welcome pack, (very much appreciated!), to her quick friendly replies to any queries and advice she made us feel welcome and cared for from the start.

I would highly recommend this holiday rental and would love to stay again in the future.

Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lisa's lovely home for 2 weeks. She has thought of everything that you could possibly need, so found much more in the way of supplies and equipment than we would have expected. We were able to invite friends and family to visit us and provide the same kind of hospitality that is available in our own homes. Everyone was impressed by the house and it's great location.

Outside a beautiful garden for fine days and evenings to relax in, weather permitting.

Sandy, her manage is available for anything you might want to ask about or for advice. Lisa herself is easily contacted for everything as well so their support is invaluable and there is a detailed reference book covering all the information about the area.

We all enjoyed our stay there very much. The whole experience exceeded our expectations so can wholeheartedly recommend this rental. Our thanks to both Lisa and Sandy for their warmth and for making us feel so welcome.

The property is well located a mere 10 minute drive from downtown Bloor street.

  • 5 of 5

This handsomely decorated property could be considered a home away from home, very comfortable for 8 people to sleep and circulate. The garden is spectacular with a trampoline and treehouse for young toddlers and up and a BBQ with cushiony patio furniture for adults to relax and enjoy summer evenings. We would definitely return to this property and recommend this unique experience to all families of this size. Moreover, the owner of the property is personable, communicates immediately to emails and makes you feel like part of her family welcoming us with a food basket and essentials in the fridge when we arrived late at night to her property.

One of the best!

  • 5 of 5

Out of all the properties that we have rented on VRBO/Homeaway, this one takes the cake, hands down! When you walk in to this house, there is a definite sense of warmth - a homely feeling! You immediately feel that you've entered a home away from home. There are many, many personal touches in this house, so for us, we immediately felt comfortable. Lisa was absolutely amazing in organizing our crib and grocery deliveries beforehand. She was really such a pleasure dealing with. I wish all rental owners were this accommodating!

The bedrooms are much more than you could ask for. The basement is pretty much self-contained and with the TV room downstairs, it seems like such a welcoming room of the house. Kitchen and pantry are well stocked, so in case you forgot something, chances are it's there.

The treehouse and trampoline are such a welcome addition to this rental, especially if you have kids. They will have a blast here. The location of the house is almost perfect - close enough to everything that you would need, but in a quiet area. If you have a car, then even better! CN tower and Ripleys are a short hop away by transit, or by driving.

As I've said before, Lisa was such an amazing person to deal with - no request was too much. She was accessible at all times, which is something that I take into account when renting.

I do look forward to another amazing stay here!

Having rented many homes through the VRBO/Homeaway network ourselves, we aim to provide the level of service and quality of accommodation that we ourselves have come to expect. I so appreciate you sharing your comments and compliments, hosting you was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to welcoming you and your delightful family back for future holidays in Toronto. Warmest regards, Lisa

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from an amazing family holiday staying here I can highly recommend this wonderful welcoming home for anyone visiting Toronto & wanting to be central . The house itself is beautiful & relaxing with everything in it that you could need or want . Lisa ( the owner ) and Sandy( the property manager) are extremely friendly and helpful going out of their way to make you feel at home and always on hand for any queries you may have . It is Situated in a gorgeous area with shops & restaurants nearby and only a 15 minute walk to the Subway and a few stops into the centre of the City .

I know for sure If and when I return to Toronto I will be immediately looking to stay here again .
