Steps from the St Clair streetcar, our basement studio has a separate entrance, private laundry, full kitchen and bath, a comfy double bed, a pullout couch, Wi-Fi, a TV and VCR (yes, we said VCR), access to our backyard, and tons of charm!

The space
Hello, we are Shannon and Gregory - teachers, travelers, and artists - welcome to your own little part of our hundred-year-old home. Like birds building a nest, we have been collecting items to make our apartment comfy and unique. Family heirlooms, salvaged antiques, thrift store finds, and travel treasures make this apartment kitschy-cool and oh-so inviting. Enjoy the following amenities:
-separate entrance
-private washing machine & steam dryer
-newly renovated bathroom (with tub)
-double bed (with bedding; sleeps 2)
-pullout couch (with bedding; sleeps 2)
-Wi-Fi
-full kitchen (with cookware/dinnerware)
-coffee maker, toaster, kettle, microwave
-VCR and DVD player + lots of movies (sorry, no cable)
-backyard access (shaded gazebo & garden)
-closet and dresser space

Guest access
There are bath towels, some basic cosmetics, laundry detergent, and your hosts upstairs in case you need anything else.

We provide staples for your breakfast (coffee, tea, toast *not included for stays longer than 2 weeks), but are surrounded by a plethora of hip brunch places; grocery and specialty stores; and restaurants of the gourmet, mid-range, and cheap-and-nice varieties. See our neighborhood guide for recommendations.

You are welcome to enjoy our backyard, but please migrate inside after midnight. We have great relationships with our friendly neighbours, and would like to keep it that way.

Other things to note
Please note: although rather roomy for a basement, our ceilings are just under 7 feet high, and lower in a few areas. As tall folks ourselves, we can comfortably live here, but we think it's only fair that you should know.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

We live in St Clair West, described by The Grid TO as "a go-to destination for downtown exiles still looking for a vibrant urban experience—the area is home to Toronto’s best BBQ joint, The Stockyards, and the multidisciplinary Wychwood Barns art space." Wychwood has an amazing year-round Saturday Farmers' Market and loads of family-friendly events. The neighbourhood has a wonderful mix of traditional and trendy bakeries, cafes, restaurants, and specialty shops. We are just east of Corso Italia, if you want a taste of Italy, and not far west of Casa Loma, if you want to get your royal on.

We are teachers, travelers, and artists who can't stop falling in love with our adopted city of Toronto. We've lived here for 9 years, and are now happy to invite fellow explorers into our home for some relaxation and inspiration. We're compiling an ever-growing guidebook of local recommendations to make your stay more convenient and enjoyable. We're big on recycling, supporting local arts, being friendly, and using coasters - please join us in these causes while you stay. If there's anything you need, we're just upstairs - please don't hesitate to ask. Inquire about Shannon's dance lessons and Gregory's poetry books.

During your stay
We'll let you in and show you around, but if we're not around, there's a lockbox outside and a handy manual inside. You'll have your own key to your own space. We're easily contactable by text, but are usually around (just upstairs). If not, we work within walking distance, so help is never far away. You may hear our cat (on a routine rhinoceros romp) upstairs, but she's not allowed in your apartment (despite her photo opp in our posted pics). You might also hear our music (recorded or live), and if so, please let us know so we can keep it down. We hope you show the same respect to us :)
