We are vey happy we stayed at Dan and Carol's. Right from the start, they were cheerful and helpful in our communications and easy to reach at all times. Dan greeted us genially on our arriva,helped us with our bags, and gave us an extensive tour of the place with thorough information about how everything worked,checking to be sure the TV was set up properly, and left us a map of the area with all the high points and restaurants etc . We loved the huge and comfortable king-size bed with beside lamps for reading, There was lots of closet space, and lots of towels and hot water in the modern bathroom. It is a spacious apartment, bigger than we expected. I really enjoyed the large kitchen area and found it quite charming .There were many staples already supplied and lots of room in the fridge for our groceries. It was an excellent location for us, being on a residential street with large trees, but very close to the shops on Queen West.Dan had thoughtfully made up the bed in the cubby for our son and, best of all, left us TWO sets of keys, so we could each go our merry ways. He also very graciously let us leave our bags in the apartment to collect later, after we checked out, as our flight was in the evening, A really great host.
You should be aware that, as Dan states in his description, it is an older home. I didn't notice any noise problem, but my husband found the footsteps and talking from the apt upstairs distracting, although they were not overly loud. It is really nice that there is a backyard and barbecue with the apartment, but it does need a gardener's touch this year. All in all, we were very pleased wit our stay here and would be happy to rent here again.
