Description

The space

Welcome to Toronto! Our condo is clean, well equipped, open concept, with breathtaking views of the city skyline. In the summer, enjoy our patio or bbq on the balcony.

Our AirBnb is for the travelling community: People who are interested in exploring Toronto and connecting with locals. We are friendly and love chatting with guests from around the world.

We offer our friendship and a place to rest at the end of the night. Our shared apartment is best suited to international travellers who are here to see the city - if you are seeking more privacy or a place to "party" this is not the best option for you.

Don't hesitate to ask us anything to make sure you book the right spot for your trip.

You are welcome to use the common areas and join us for a drink, a meal or a movie if you'd like.

Conveniently, public transit is at our doorstep!

Getting around

Our home is easily accessed from all transportation hubs in the city by public transit or car. Once you're booked, we'll send detailed directions.

Other things to note

We have a dog, a small shih-tzu mix named Bubbles. He's non-shedding (hypoallergenic), quiet and a little shy.

We love Toronto and we trust you will too:

We had a wonderful stay in their beautiful apartment with the most amazing view of Toronto skyline! Michelle and Patrick were not home most of the time, so we had the apartment to ourselves, but everything they had promised would be available was provided for us. We really enjoyed staying at their place and would love to come back!

We were in and out of the apartment quite a bit so we did not see our host's much but they were sure to make us feel welcome and set the ground rules from when we arrived. The place was a fantastic location and they gave us lots of ideas in advance of what we could do in the city and how we could get there.

Michelle and Patrick were the most accommodating and welcoming hosts I could ask for. They were both friendly and approachable and made me feel most welcome in their home. The accommodation was clean and modern and the view from the balcony is amazing. The apartment is extremely close to downtown and it is easy to travel to any attraction in the Toronto area. Michelle and Patrick were always on hand to offer advice and suggestions on where to visit or provide directions to an attraction. They made me feel very included and comfortable in their home and were happy to spend time chatting with me, they also invited me to have dinner with them and Patrick even invited me to attend a Blue Jays game with his friends. They are both friendly and outgoing and went out of their way to ensure I got the most out of my trip to Toronto. I highly recommend Michelle and Patrick’s accommodation if you are looking for a contemporary apartment in downtown Toronto with friendly and welcoming hosts. Thank you for being such great hosts!

We can say so much positive things about it, because it was definitly perfect there. Michelle and patrick are both very nice, friendly and above all helpful people :) We could ask them anytime we need help, and they had an open ear for us. The room was very comfortable and clean. The view to toronto is increadable :) We could use the bathroom, the washing machine , dryer and the kitchen as it would be ours. We would definitly come again to michelle and patrick, and of course their nice dog bubbles:)
