Exactly as described, easy access to rest of Toronto

  • 4 of 5

This property is exactly as described. There were no unpleasant surprises (which is so nice when you are traveling). This is a quite clean basement apartment, one big room with a small separate kitchen and a private bath. We found we could go everywhere we wanted with public transport, and the location made it easy. It's 2 blocks away from the bus stop, and about 10 blocks from the subway station. Everything was clean and working, the owners were helpful, and Netflix was nice to have stuff to watch. Laundry facilities meant we didn't have to pack so much. Full sized fridge was great. If you are over 6 ft tall, the room has a few challenges, but nothing that can't be worked with. Bed was quite comfortable. All in all, we are pleased we stayed here.

Neat with all mod cons

  • 4 of 5

It's a basement flat, so not much natural light and if you're a really tall person you may struggle. They would be my only criticisms. We only met the owners a couple of times but they were really nice and helpful. Close to transit, albeit bus 26 hit and miss, Subway is an easy 10 min walk, shopping mall 2 mins walk. Kitchen is fully equipped (get a kettle Dallas) and laundry facilities were most welcome. We were left coffee and condiments. Netflix is a nice touch and wifi is very good too. I would stay here again and would recommend the property

Great property- very clean and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our stay at this property. We enjoyed having the convenience of a kitchen, especially with young children. The location was decent as we had a fairly short walk to the subway system. Netflix was also a nice bonus:)
