This is our second stay at the same home. Brett's place is comfy and cosy. You will enjoy the privacy you need while having a great host who is ready to attend to your requests whenever possible. Transportation lines are few meters away and local stores for quick supplies are plenty. I recommend the place.

Brett's place was exactly as in the pictures. The place is spacious with room for luggage and is finished well. Brett's family is welcoming and generous while giving us the privacy we wanted. Brett attends to every request and exceeded our expectations of a host every time. The place is equipped with everything we needed for our stay and has cool artwork and even darts board ;) The neighborhood was great for walks and there are cool shops nearby for a quick bite or a cup of coffee. I would definitely recommend Brett's place for any trip to Toronto. I know we are going there again next month :)

Our stay at Brett and Sandra's was perfect. The space was exactly as described very bright and spacious. Brett was very quick to respond should we have any questions. Brett and Sandra invited us to dinner and offered help and suggestions for settling in the city which was much appreciated being new to Toronto. I would highly recommend a stay at Brett and Sandra's.

The hosts are fantastic and very quick to respond to any needs. Further more they go out of their way to make sure you are ok. This is a massive basement apartment that has more light than some above ground apartments. It is decorated like a picket fence cottage far away from the city with tons of antiques! It's fairly easy to use this home as a base if you are driving. It's immediately next to the highway entrance! If you're taking public transport it's convenient in that there are a lot of busses nearby, but it will still take you some time to get into downtown. Maybe 30-45 minutes depending where you are going. A few things to note. The home is closer to O'Connor than it is to Danforth. After walking to Danforth once you probably won't want to do it again. Second, the heating is controlled upstairs by the host. They're good at adjusting it if you need more or less heat, but some people may be picky about having real time control. Third, the house is undergoing renos at the moment (can't imagine it lasting much longer), so the entrance to the apartment and the laneway is unfinished. At night the lane is dark so just be careful if it's raining (uneven gravel) or equipment/strollers/bicycles are in the path. If you can see through these things it's a great place to stay with very friendly hosts!

I can highly recommend Brett's apartment! It's the perfect apartment to discover Toronto. Public transport is close and takes you to every important point of interest in Toronto within minutes. Brett himself is a perfect host. He runs his apartment like a little hotel and makes sure your stay will be awesome!

Staying at Brett's for a couple of days was very nice! The place was clean, had everything we needed and was very spacious for being a basement. It is in a good location, with easy access to the TTC. Brett was very friendly when we met and gave me some nice tips of the neighborhood.

Hope all is well. My name is Brett Preston and I learned about AirBnB while travelling in Brazil. We loved it, so I thought that I would rent out my place. I own a non-for-profit wine called The Little Grape That Could. I look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers, Brett
