Hard working creative, citizen of the world. I have lived, worked and traveled on most continents and know the value of a nice, tranquil and pleasant home away from home. I speak several languages fluently and love connecting with new people wherever I am.
Jason purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Jason chose Old Toronto
I fell in love with this house the moment I saw it. In the spirit of European urban elegance snd property sharing, I wanted to offer discerning travelers a chance to stay in our lovely, fully self-contained unit in out home. To this end we have created a wonderfully cozy, quiet but central northern European style flat akin to what you might find in England, Holland or France or England. Welcome
What makes this Apartment unique
Words can't describe the easy, quiet, downtown charm of Seaton Village / Christie Pits - the area that we are so privileged to live in. So centrally located with convenient, nearby access to Subways, Buses, Bikes Lanes and Taxis, it's hard to imagine ever needing a car. Toronto is a really easy city to get around and the following local attractions / areas are all within close distances / travel times from our downtown House: • Pearson Airport - 25 kms / 15 miles. 30 mins. The UP Express Train that runs to and from Pearson International Airport is easily the fastest, most convenient, cleanest and absolute best option available. Our House is located near the UP's Bloor stop. The UP Train journey is only 17 minutes from the airport to Bloor Station and costs $11.40 CAD return. From Bloor station we are a 5-10 min cab ride or 3 subway stops away. The whole journey from disembarking to arriving at the House can easily take under an hour, depending on immigration and customs. • Ossington Ave / Queen West / Parkdale area - 2.5 kms / 1.5 miles. 7 - 10 mins by Bus or Cab. • Casa Loma - 3 kms / 1.8 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway / Bus or Cab. • Yorkville / ROM / University of Toronto - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway or Cab. • Kensington Market / Chinatown - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab. • High Park / Bloor West Village - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab. • Exhibition Place / Liberty Village / BMO field - 4.5 kms / 2.8 miles. 15-20 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab. • Entertainment / Financial Districts - 5 kms / 3 miles. 15-20 mins by Subway or Cab. • Eaton Centre / Yonge-Dundas Square - 5.4 kms / 3.3 miles. 20 mins by Subway / Bus or Cab. • St. Lawrence Market - 7 kms / 4.3 Miles. 23 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab. • The Distillery District - 8 kms / 5 miles. 25 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab. • Toronto Island - arguably the jewel in Toronto's crown, you simply cannot visit Toronto without a visit.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Toronto. Jason was just terrific attending to even the smallest request.
The location was perfect and the apartment was wonderful. We will not hesitate to stay here again.
Thanks so much Barbara! It was so great to have you and Patrick stay with us. We look forward to seeing you guys again soon! Best, Jason

This apartment is as advertised. The instructions to enter the apartment were clear and easy to follow. The apartment is clean and well maintained and Jason was attentive to our few small questions. We would highly recommend this apartment.
Thanks so much Stephen! It was great to have you guys!
Comfy digs in an excellent location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Christie Pits. The apartment is comfortable and well appointed, and located in a walkable neighbourhood with easy access to TTC buses and subway -- we were glad we didn't come by car as parking can be hard to find, though not impossible. Note that the laundry facilities are kept under lock and key and available for an extra charge, which is somewhat unusual as this is something that has always been included in all the other VRBO/AIRBNB places we have stayed at. The host, Jason, is very helpful and answers all queries promptly. Highly recommended if you're looking a nice quiet place that's still close to the city core.
Thanks for your kind words Angelo. It was a pleasure to host you guys. Parking is actually very easy to find. ALL our guests who drive are able to find spots directly in front of the house or within a few yards, without exception. Also, since our only laundry facilities onsite are located in the furnace room alongside the main fuse box and electrical panels and mains for the whole house where we also store a great many personal belonging, we felt it was in everyone's interest to restrict access. It simply is unnecessary for anyone to need access to those other things and so this compromise solution makes the most sense. Mis-characterizing these details (which you cannot have known) makes us sound being overly protective or guarded, when nothing could be further from the truth. As mentioned in the description, if guests wish or need to do laundry they just have to ask. And a levy may or may not be charged depending upon many factors including load size, number of loads and time of day. These are reasonable parameters and no one has ever expressed any misgivings whatsoever. I cannot account for other properties. Hope this clarifies. Thanks again!
It was a wonderful time in Toronto. The apartment is very cozy. The backer next door has a great coffee and everything one needs for a breakfast. The Underground station is around 10 min. on foot. The apartment is located in a quite residential area. We enjoyed staying there. Best greetings to Jason, the host.
Thanks Yulia! It was wonderul
to have you stay with us. We are delighted you enjoyed our unit and neighborhood so much! Come again!
