About this listing
An inviting and comfortable 3 bedroom house with off-street parking, located centrally with easy access to public transit and all the major sights. Walk to the cafes and restaurants on St Clair Ave West or fire up the BBQ and relax in the back yard!
Charming, centrally located home with public transit at the doorstep and within walking distance to St Clair Ave West. Close to cafes, restaurants and shops along St Clair Ave West, supermarkets (Loblaws & No Frills), Cedarvale Park/Phil White Arena and Wychwood Barns/farmer’s market.
The house is very comfortable and has lots of original wood trim, hardwood floors, French doors and a wood burning fireplace in the living room. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 on the upper level, each with a queen size bed, plus a small bedroom in the basement off the family room with a double bed. There is also a double futon in the basement family room if extra sleeping space is required. Please note, the ceilings are quite low in the basement so if you're tall, you will have to duck in places. There are two full bathrooms, one on the upper level and one in the basement. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a gas range with double oven, large fridge and dishwasher plus coffee maker, kettle and toaster. There is a TV and DVD player in the basement family room. A fully equipped office with desk, printer, books and sitting area is also available. Also included are basic breakfast supplies, A/C, WiFi, a land line for local calls, and laundry facilities.
There is a covered front porch which is a lovely place for a morning coffee plus a landscaped back yard with seating areas and a gas BBQ.
Available year round and appropriate for both business and leisure travel. Please inquire with any questions you may have!
Interaction with Guests
You will have the house to yourselves during your stay, but I'm happy to make myself available any time you have questions or if you require something for the house. I'm situated nearby so please do let me know if there's something you need to make your stay more comfortable.
I've lived in the neighbourhood for more than 14 years and I really love the area. It's easy to get downtown but yet you feel like you're far away from the hustle and bustle of city life when you sit out in the back yard. There are lots of amenities nearby including restaurants, groceries, coffee shops, bakeries and parks, to name a few. I've highlighted lots of places in the Guidebook and am happy to provide more recommendations if you are looking for something specific in the neighbourhood.
Public transit (bus) to the St Clair West subway station is literally steps away from the front door of the house. You can also walk to the subway station in 10-15 mins or to St Clair Ave West to catch the streetcar in 7-10 mins.
If you have a car, there is parking in a detached garage (in the summer months) plus 1-2 outside parking spaces in the driveway (depending on the size of the vehicles).
The international airport (Pearson) is situated about 20 km away. The easiest way to get to the house is by taxi. An airport taxi costs about $45 but if you book ahead you can get it as cheap as $39. Other, albeit less convenient, options are available so if you'd like more information, please let me know.
Please mind the following House Rules during your stay:
1. No smoking indoors
2. No pets
3. Please water the plants if they look thirsty
4.Please be respectful of the neighbours next door
5. Please leave the house in the condition in which you found it
A detailed house guide is provided and should answer all your questions. It contains important information about parking, garbage sorting and collection times, WiFi access, use of appliances and other household items.
Thank you and enjoy your stay!
Cindy's house worked perfectly for the six of us! The fact that it also has a parking spot and back yard was perfect! The location was perfect for getting around and back to the airport with no problem! We really enjoyed our stay! Cindy is available if you have any needs. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was wonderful! Thank you Cindy & Don!
Fabulous comfortable home! This was an ideal place for 4 of us (2 adults + 2 adult children) to meet up and stay while in Toronto for a family wedding. The backyard was a perfect oasis for relaxing, sipping drinks and listening to birds chirping after our very long drives in the car. Cindy stocked the fridge with milk, eggs, yogurt and bagels saving us the trouble of finding breakfast. Very convenient neighborhood for where we needed to be. Space to park 2 cars off the street. I loved walking around the neighborhood admiring the residents' gardens; we never even went downtown! It truly felt like "our home" for the weekend. Thank you Cindy.
Cindy was great and so welcoming. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house, especially using the amazing new grill in the back yard.
Would stay again next time we are in town.
Our group (party of 7) enjoyed Cindy's place very much. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is good equipped and the yard & grill are awesome! Cindy is very friendly and responded quickly. I would highly recommend this place for a trip to Toronto!
Cindy's home was exactly as described. She responded quickly to our questions and requests. Her attention to detail makes her house a comfortable home away from home!
We had an excellent experience with Cindy and her beautiful house in Toronto. Cindy was prompt, friendly and helpful in her correspondence before we stayed there. The house was exactly as described and shown in the photos. Cindy is clearly an experienced host, leaving a very comprehensive guide to the house itself and highlights of the surrounding neighbourhood. Overall a very enjoyable stay and highly recommended to anyone looking for a place in Toronto.
Cindy's house was a perfect destination and home-base while visiting Toronto. We were there for a family wedding and had our family of 4 (two adults, two small children) as well as both grandmothers staying together. The house was impeccably clean and Cindy's hospitable touch was left in every room. Not only does she leave a detailed house information book out, each room is left like a hotel with matching towels, nice bedding and empty drawers/closets. Also the kitchen was extremely well-stocked and she even left ample breakfast supplies which lasted us the whole weekend. It was a cold November weekend while we visited and the house was none-too warm when we arrived. We eventually figured out that the heat needed to be turned up quite high for any heat to be noticed but that wasn't a problem once we figured it out. All-in-all a great house and Cindy was lovely to deal with.

About the Host, Cindy
I love to travel and have been very fortunate to do quite a bit of it, especially over the past few years. It's always so nice to have a comfortable place to stay when travelling...it makes a trip so much more fun and memorable! I have had many wonderful experiences with Airbnb hosts on my travels...and have learned a few things along the way! My experiences have helped me make my house a special place you will remember too! I hope you enjoy the space as much as I do!
