- The kitchen can be used whenever you'd like. You will have your own cupboard and space in the fridge to store your food. Please help yourself to coffee, tea, spices, cooking oil, etc.
- If there is anything else you may need during your stay, just ask - I may have it : )
Interaction with guests
I live in the second bedroom, so you might be sharing the space with me during your stay; but there is lots of room for space and privacy should you desire! Although I'm generally busy and out of the house a lot, I really enjoy having Air Bnb guests and am more than happy to help you find your way around Toronto and perhaps enjoy a meal or a drink together. If I am away during your stay, you will still be able to contact me and I will leave you with a few phone numbers in case of questions or problems.
This neighborhood is the BEST in Toronto! You will be staying right between trendy Trinity Bellwoods Park and lively Little Italy. There are Dozens of bars, cafes and restaurants... live music venues... beautiful parks... cool shops... art galleries... clothing stores... an independent movie theatre… etc. etc., all within a 15 minute walking radius around the apartment!! Other great neighborhoods like Kensington Market, Chinatown, Queen West, Parkdale, the Annex and U of T are all within walking distance as well. I've lived in the area for almost a decade and can help you navigate your way around the city with tips and advice.
The Dundas streetcar and College streetcar (major TTC lines) are both less than a 5-minute walk from the house. The Christie subway station is only a 15-minute walk.
On-street overnight parking is available with a pass from the city (between $3 and $9 per night depending on length of stay).
Getting to the house from either airport, the bus station or the train station is easy and I will provide you with directions after booking.
Other things to note
Please keep in mind that this is apartment is in an old house, which means that the floors are a bit creaky, the paint has some imperfections and the bathroom tiles have seen better days. That said, it's a great place, just not a hotel! Send me a message if you’d like more info : )
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed and smoking can only be done outside. Please be clean and respectful and let me know if you plan to have any visitors during your stay. Thanks!
