This 1 Bedroom basement apartment is perfectly located to local transit and is in the uber cool Leslieville neighbourhood. Walk anywhere then come back to the quiet apartment for an amazing night's sleep. Overnight street permit for parking not incl.
We cater to the business or weekend travellers. Unfortunately we don't offer long stays as we also use the space ourselves and friends visiting Toronto.
The kitchen is not intended for every day cooking. It has the essentials but is small and made for business travellers or vacationing tourists. Plus...you really need to eat in the amazing restaurants.
*** Pape Avenue between Queen and Gerrard is EXTREMELY quiet. It is mostly a walking neighbourhood and all of the traffic is on Carlaw.
The 1 bedroom basement apartment awaits your visit to Toronto. The apartment has a separate entrance in the back and no access from the house so you have complete privacy.
Located in restaurant lover's Leslieville area you will be minutes away from downtown or anywhere else you want to venture.
We supply towels, bedding, toiletries, and TV with built in DVD Player for your evening enjoyment if you find the night life is not for you...because this is a fun part of town.
Bathroom has a large bathtub with shower. The bathroom is not the newest but we try our best to keep it tidy and clean. The water pressure is great and our hot water is from an on demand system so you won't run out of hot water.
Please no requests for more than 2 people. We don't want people sleeping on the sofa.
Transit is minutes away. Take the streetcar, subway or catch a taxi within minutes.
My favourite walk is to the Beach which is 3km away and Riverdale Park which is 2km away.
If you like coffee houses, Leslieville is for you. We have at least a dozen places within 2km walk that you will love to read or chat with locals. Check out Rooster across from Riverdale Park, Mercury Espresso, Te Aro, Dark Horse, and many more. If you are also able to spare some time for Brunch, ask us and we'll point you to the hidden gems.
I have had other apartments on AirBnB and have stayed in several places myself. My goal is simply to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable for what ever brings you to this amazing city.
If you enjoy wandering through great neighbourhoods, I can help and look forward to meeting you.
We have recently renovated the backyard and added a Hot Tub and outdoor seating area. This area as rule is reserved for the house but on occasion we invite our guests to enjoy it as it is a wonderful space. Unfortunately we can't promise access but please check with us if that's important to you.
Everything you have in the apartment is available. If you have "nice" bicycles and want to store them inside, the furnace room is roomy enough for protecting your ride. If you also need some emergency laundry and I'm in town, I would be happy to do a few loads for you. Otherwise there are a few dry cleaners and self-serve laundry facilities within walking distance.
Altre cose da evidenziare
This is a basement apartment in a 2 story home which my partner and I live in. The apartment is very private with a backyard entrance and no stairway from the house. Please read the directions on accessing the apartment once your reservation is confirmed. There is a lockbox in the backyard with the key so you do NOT need to meet someone to pickup the key.
Also...there is no door from the hallway to the bedroom. We recently had a guest ask why there is no door and to be honest, there has never been one in the 3 years we have owned the property and I don't intend to put one in. It was also the only time someone pointed this out because she was a light sleeper and her husband liked to stay up late and watch TV.
Take care of our home like you would your own. Please take all food and garbage when you leave. We will not allow more than 2 people. Smoking allowed outside. Please check out by 12pm on the day of departure unless you have asked us for a late departure as we usually have others checking in by 3pm and we like to have everything ready. As indicated, we live upstairs and are available to help anytime. We get up very early (sometimes 5:30am) and try to be as quiet as possible but the house is over 100 years old and you will hear us walking. If you are a very light sleeper this may not be the best apartment for you.
If you would like to sit outside in the backyard or use the BBQ, hot tub or outdoor fireplace, please ask ahead of time. We are often not home and you are perfectly welcome to use the space if we aren't.
Please ensure you keep any green-bin food items that raccoons love indoors (in the furnace room for example) until Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. The food, garbage/recycling is picked up at 7am every Thursday. Meat bones are definitely their favourite night time snacks. :-)

Your privacy is highly respected. If you need help, just let me know. I would be very happy to share all the local amenities with you and even show you around if time permits. I've been in the neighbourhood for a while and know Toronto quite well. If you are looking for something, I can help you find it.
I am a small business owner in Toronto and love this city. I've used AirBNB as a traveller and have hosted since 2010. I love to travel and meet new people. If you are staying in Toronto...welcome! You will love it.
