Very good location in a lovely neighbourhood. Close to amenities and transit system. Easy trip into downtown with the benefit of shoreside fun! Nice accommodation and very comfortable bed.

Close to public transportation, restaurants and bars and a grocery store. Great for families with older children. There are quit a few stairs. Patricia was easy to get on touch with and responded within a couple of hours. I would definitely stay again but not in August since there is no A.C..

In the beach area there is a constant breeze. Open windows and ceiling fan keep the place airy all summer. Not AC cold but still breezy and lovely all summer long.

Great apartment in a great location if you want to be near the Beach. Bedrooms had lots of storage for clothes. Kitchen was fairly well equipped. Patricia is always available to be able to contact with questions. All in all a very comfortable place to stay.

Patricia's beach retreat was a perfect spot for my family of four. It was very clean and had all the amenities of home. Patricia was easily reached when needed and she checked in regularly. The location is a 5-10 minute walk from all the shops and restaurants of Queen Street, with easy access to the Queen Street car. A parking spot and access to laundry were wonderful bonuses.

Patricia is a great and very accommodating host. She answered all our questions and requests in a timely manner (given the time zone difference). The space was very clean and the listing is accurate (except for the TV part; for me TV means cable which was not available, but its a smart TV with Netflix account for the guests to use). There were more than enough towels and sheets. It's a quite neighborhood but mins away from shopping and eating places. Personally, I enjoyed the artwork and their books collection :) Actually, the listing photos don't really give this home enough credit; I was pleasantly surprised. Overall, I would give this listing an easy 90-95% satisfaction rating. We enjoyed our time in TO and a great part of that was because we had a comfortable nice place to go back to every night.

Welcome to our home when we are in Toronto. We moved from the center of the city, which has it's own excitement and convenience, but there's nothing like the feeling of getting out of the city while still being in it - that's the feeling you get at the Beach Retreat. We hope you enjoy the boardwalk, sand, cafes and boutiques as much as we do.
