Destination guide

Discover multicultural Toronto with private holiday lets

Welcome to Toronto, a city alive with arts, culture, music, fashion and entertainment. The metropolis is considered Canada's multicultural melting pot, with roughly 200 languages spoken within its limits and a colourful food scene to match. Wondering where to stay? Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods and finding your niche is all part of the fun. From sleek studios in Queen Street West to heritage townhouses in the Distillery District, Toronto holiday lets promise a local experience in your favourite enclave.

Back in 1981 the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre was destined for demolition. That is, until historians stepped in and gave the much-loved Edwardian theatre a multi-million-dollar makeover. Today, tours offer a behind the scenes glimpse at the intricate rose-garden frescoes, beautifully made Belgian upholstery and hand-painted botanical murals. While ultra-modern condos are a treat, holiday homes in Toronto unlock access to a host of unique properties in historic neighbourhoods, like Cabbagetown.
