Welcome to Leslieville - close enough to have your finger on the pulse, but removed enough to enjoy quiet evenings. My place is close to DOWNTOWN (15 min), THE BEACHES (10 min), FINANCIAL DISTRICT (10 min). I am steps to the 501 QUEEN ST. STREETCAR (24 hr). You’ll love my place because it is newly renovated and exceptionally well maintained. Ideal for singles and couples, leisure and business alike. Is there a missing detail that would make this listing the perfect choice? Don't hesitate to ask.

The space

While the suite is technically in the basement of my home, it is a walkout as the basement level is only 50% below grade, unlike most homes that are 80% or more below ground. Rest assured, light is not an issue.

Guest access

Access to home is via keypad. As such, please only use the front door for entry and exit as it locks itself behind you. You do not need to adjust any of the knobs upon entry or exit, just ensure the door closes completely in both instances. While the suite is self-contained for your privacy, access to the main floor kitchen is negotiable on longer term bookings. You are also welcome to use of the outdoor patio when in season.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Help yourself to the patio doors in the guest suite for outdoor access and fresh air, however please do not use them for entry and exit as they cannot be locked from the outside.

Interaction with guests

I am the primary resident in this home, and am available 24/7 should you have questions regarding the neighbourhood, transit, city, and the home itself. I too enjoy travel, both personally and professionally, and look forward to meeting you. Questions before, during and after your stay? Don't hesitate to write, or ask me in person.

Other things to note

FREE PARKING is available - please enquire on the specifics of parking as it requires additional instructions. The home is not air conditioned, but the unique nature of the structure ensures a comfortable climate. The space has humidity control to ensure it is arid, and free of dampness/moisture, to ensure it is comfortable AND dry.
1. Heating: Please be comfortable with the temperature of your accommodation, however please endeavour to turn the individual thermostats down to 15C or lower when you are not here. Additionally, please turn all lighting off when not in use.
2. Laundry: the washer and dryer have usage restrictions that reflect optimal residential rates in Toronto. Laundry can be done from Monday-Friday, 7PM-7AM, and ALL DAY during Saturday and Sunday.
Thank you!

Chris’ place is so stylish and definitely clean. The location is also quiet and we felt safe on our stay. Chris has been very quick in responding to all our questions and he made sure all we will need during our stay are handy and ready. Will highly recommend this place if you will stay in Downtown Toronto, so close to everywhere.

Chris's place is as described, large room, spacious, comfortable bed and shower and most importantly, great location. I stayed there by myself, it was a luxury. Literally one minute away from queen street east, catch a street car 501 or pick up a share bike, then you are in the middle of the city in no time. Leslieville is such a vibrant, hip neighborhood with many highly rated restaurants. Definitely would come back to Chris's place if visited TO again. Really curious how the house would look after the renovation is completed.
