"Our family of five (three teens) stayed four nights in August. This was the nicest place we've ever stayed as a family, and probably the most convenient.
The townhouse is beautifully decorated in modern style, with high-end appliances and a newly appointed kitchen. It was spotless when we arrived, and the owner's assistant even presented us with a plum cake from a nearby bakery.
The bedrooms are all nice. The master bedroom is huge, and the bathroom on that level is like a spa - huge bathtub, walk-in shower, heated floor. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a small balcony overlooking downtown Toronto, and the rooftop patio has an even nicer view. We loved drinking coffee and reading the paper up there.
Having a garage parking space was golden, but the place is convenient to the streetcars on Queen and King street, and downtown is also in walking distance. (A long walk, to be sure, but still do-able.) Our 18-year-old son walked to a concert at Echo Beach, almost directly down Strachan Avenue; it was a safe, convenient walk that probably was faster than dealing with the traffic of dropping him off down there.
West Queen West, just a block to the north, is full of good restaurants and interesting shops - a very hip neighborhood. Convenient to the Art Gallery of Ontario, which we also enjoyed after a great lunch in Chinatown - streetcar there, walked back.
For all the activity of Toronto, it seemed quiet and peaceful at the townhouse. We loved it.
The only people for whom I would not recommend this place would be those with knee problems. With kitchen and living room on one floor, master bed and bath on the next, second and third bedrooms on the next, and rooftop deck on the next, there is a lot of stair-climbing involved if one is going to take full advantage of this beautiful townhouse."
