Enjoy your time in Toronto in an art filled private unit which is perfectly situated a few blocks from the Keele Street subway station in the High Park area of the city. Enjoy a quiet retreat within arms reach of dynamic neighborhoods.

The space

Contemporary art will surround you in this unique residence. The open concept basement space allows for both large and small paintings to be viewed. There is ample space for you to throw down a yoga mat or just relax in the back yard. The kitchen has a full sized fridge, 2 induction burners, a toaster oven, microwave and kettle, and has 2 windows which filter the afternoon light. The bathroom has a shower (sorry, no tub) and ample storage for toiletries.
The bedroom/open concept seating area is designed for two guests although a bench seat can provide a sleeping space for a child, if requested (additional fee will apply).
A private entrance to the unit at the front of the house is accessed via a small flagstone path and is illuminated with motion detection
lighting.

The backyard is completely secure and fenced on both sides. In the summer it is lush and a complete oasis, providing a reprieve from all the high energy urban pursuits.

Guest access

Guests have a fully contained unit with a kitchen and bathroom. The unit has a private front entrance.
The backyard can be accessed through the rear entry door which leads to the garden.

Interaction with guests

I am a working visual artist, part time educator and full time culture vulture. If I am home I will be happy to answer any questions you might have and point you in the direction of all the wonderful experiences that the neighborhood and city have to offer. Many of them are within arms reach.
I can't guarantee my presence at all times but we can certainly make communication happen.

Jennifer made us very welcome and we loved the apartment. The location is ideal - very quiet but with easy access to shops and the subway. We hope to return.

Staying at Jennifer's place was a very pleasant experience. The apartment is nice, it looks exactly like the photos and was clean and comfortable. Jennifer was great to communicate with and ensured that I got into the apartment and settled ok. I would definitely stay at Jennifers again.

We are so lucky to have a host like Jennifer in Toronto. We stay at Jennifer's place everytime we are in Toronto and it feels like home now. It's truly a delight. So comfortable. Clean. Cozy. Scenic. Peaceful. And the most friendly host one could ask for. Thanks for having us. We are so lucky to have found a friend like Jennifer. We always look forward to our next trip to Toronto. Xoxo

We highly recommend this place. Jennifer is really nice and helped with all our questions. The apartment is clean and has everything you need. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, but it's easy to take the subway to the city. And it's on walking distance from nice neighbourhoods like the junction,... We really enjoyed it here.

Although I did not meet Jennifer during my stay, that did not affect the quality of my trip at all. She was quick to respond to my messages and checking in was easy as the keys were in a lockbox. The basement apartment was beautifully furnished to resemble a hotel but so much better! We had everything we needed! Public transportation, restaurants and parks are all within walking distance and whichever route you take, there's always something new and interesting to look at. The door can be a bit difficult to open/close but we found it to be one of its quirks we adapted to. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thanks, Jennifer!

Jennifer's location was very convenient, the unit was very clean and the pre-arrival communication was great. It was a nice treat that there was some food in the fridge on arrival since the trip to Toronto was 13 hours and we didn't want to head out to find something to eat that night. I would return again.
