About this listing

Bright, self-contained basement apartment located 2 minutes from Ossington subway.

Featuring exposed brick and mid-century furnishings includes a Queen bed and double pull out. Close to everything great about this city.

The space

The apartment is self-contained with private access. Perfect for families, singles or couples. Feel free to cook your own meals, though we doubt you’ll want to given the fantastic restaurants in our neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood is a walk fest: restaurants, galleries, cool bars and vintage shops, grocery store, a yoga studio, vegan food cafe, and a beautiful YMCA gym with indoor track, pool, steam room and sauna.

The area is also kid friendly with 4 parks in walking distance, hosting splash pads and a full pool in summers; ice rinks in winter and farmers markets all year round.

Other features:
-Queer and LGBTQ friendly

This is a clean, sweet, fun basement flat in a century old brick row house. It is neither fancy-dancy nor Dwell Magazine design-y but it is happy and cute as heck and in a fantastic location.

Interaction with guests

I can provide as much or as little interaction as guests desire. I will help you settle in if you'd like and then leave you to our own devices. Whenever you have a question please feel free to email me or text me. I live upstairs so am around and I love my neighbourhood and city so can give lots of recommendations. I’ve lived in this neighbourhood for over ten years and watched it grow, so I can tell you all about the spots that you won’t find online.

Lisa's place is a great stay! On a quiet, residential street, but within walking distance of several lively neighborhoods with shops, bars, etc. The apartment is nice--small, but adequately furnished with a retro feel. Two friends and I stayed there quite comfortably. We never ran into Lisa on our short stay, but she was great about communicating with us to make sure we had what we needed. I'd definitely stay again!

The place was perfect, just as advertised. Great for my 9 day stay in Toronto. Spacious, clean, close to the Bloor line with great shops and restaurants. Far more affordable than a hotel room with much more personality. Would definitely stay again!

This is an adorable flat in a trendy neighbourhood. We stayed for date night and Lisa not only made the entire process seamless but also afforded us privacy. The location is amazing and the apartment is well equipped! We had a great stay.

Conveniently located in a great part of the city close to the Ossington strip. Lisa recommended some cool spots to grab lunch and drinks nearby. She answered all questions in a timely manor and gave us our privacy. The place did get a bit cold at times but overall a good place to stay in the city.

Response from Lisa:
So sorry about the heat. I would have turned up if you mentioned. It was cold. There was a portable heater in the bedroom closet but you may not have seen. I will add that to the guest info. Sorry about the floors. My cleaner was cleaned before you arrived. She is usually great. I will follow up.
