This apartment is located on the second floor of small 19th century house that was once the servant's quarters for the mansion next door. It's maintained in an immaculate and tidy condition.
There can be as many as three beds, should guests need that. The main bed is a double bed in the bedroom, and we can add a fold-out sofa bed in the living room as well as a comfy double futon on the living room floor if guests request them.
All household items are here, including freshly laundered linen, duvet, pillows and towels, Wifi, iron and hair dryer. In winter it is toasty warm with easily controllable heating, and in summer there is air conditioning. There is a TV with limited channels, but no cable TV. There is also a coin laundry next door - let me know if you need it and I can instruct you on how to access it.
There's a small bright and clean bathroom, with a shower that provides endless hot water. It should be noted that the bathroom is small by North American standards, and might be a little difficult for accessibility-challenged people.
There is a fully-equipped kitchen with all condiments, lots of cookware, a fridge, four-burner stove and oven, electric kettle, microwave, blender, toaster, and toaster oven.
It's located on the second floor up some fairly narrow stairs, so be aware for accessibility issues.
This place is yours, and yours alone. There is a separate entrance from the garden courtyard. You will have your own set of keys so you can come and go as you like. The keys will let you into the laundry room of the building complex, which is located a few metres away in the next building.
There is a free parking spot right next to the house. Let me know if you'd like to use it.
Interaction with Guests
As your host, I'm available 24/7 by phone, text or email. I encourage guests to get in touch with me without hesitation if they have any questions about the house, or simply queries about the city.
The Coach House is located in one of Toronto's most dynamic neighborhoods. Kensington Market is two streets away, Chinatown is next door and the University of Toronto is a two minute walk from the house. Kensington Market is great for diverse, alternative, low-cost and colourful restaurants, bars, boutiques and food shops, while Chinatown is the place for great Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese restaurants, and well-stocked supermarkets that are open late.
There's also a 24 hour pharmacy/supermarket on the corner.
Public transit is excellent in this location. The Coach House is next to the Spadina St. streetcar (tram), which is one of the most frequent in the city and integrates directly into the subway system.
Other Things to Note
The house is located near two of the most frequent streetcars in Toronto, a north south one and an east west one, both of which lead into a Metro line.
