Private Bed & Bath in Gorgeous Home

House - Private room · Boulton Avenue, Toronto, ON M4M 1Y4, Canada

Our completely renovated house with movie theater loft and gourmet kitchen is positioned right where South Riverdale meets Leslieville, just ten minutes east of the down town core. Free parking is also available just down the street, a very rare find downtown!

The Space

The soaring 16" Vaulted ceilings above the living and dining room with built in movie screen that can be watched from the loft seating make this home truly unique in Toronto.

Guest Access

You will have your own private bedroom with Queen Bed (freshly laundered sheets and down duvet provided), shared access to our Gourmet Kitchen, Back Yard Barbecue, Movie Theater (Cable, Apple TV, Netflix), and exclusive access to the Washroom with extra large Bathtub/Shower (we have our own en-suite). We have a commercial, tankless water heater, which means there is unlimited hot water!... I read on another listing that people get concerned about this stuff.

Interaction with Guests

We are pretty flexible; always excited to meet and hang out with new people, and also usually out of the house a lot of the time. We'll probably be here in the evening. We also have a small Havaneese dog (Pablo) who doesn't shed and is hypoallergenic... He's likes company as much as we do.

Check in is typically 3pm or later, and checkout is typically Noon. We really only need to stick with this if there is another booking immediately before or after your stay. I'll let you know!

The Neighborhood

Our Neigbourhood is a short walk to Trendy Queen Street in Leslieville; this stretch was reviewed in the New York Times as being "The Brunch Capital of North America". You will also be close to East China town on Gerrard with amazingly inexpensive dining options (I get my hair cut there for $8).

Getting around

We are 3km east of the Toronto Eaton Centre. It's a 10mn streetcar ride into the downtown core and financial district or 10 minute streetcar ride east to the Beach. It's also about 5 minutes to get to the Danforth subway line, and another 5 minutes to Yonge & Boor, Yorkville area for the Museum, High End Shopping, and Celebrity spotting. Travel times by streetcar are actually often slightly slower than by bicycle, which we provide (2) along with locks during the warm seasons, a $30 per bike per day value!

Other Things to Note

In case you missed it: There is FREE PARKING!! (a rare find in Toronto). It's just a few doors down, on Dundas St.

Please Note: We only accept one night bookings within a week of the date. Otherwise, we keep the calender open for multi-night guests as single night bookings, especially on the weekend, often cause vacancy on the adjacent night. Thanks!

  • What a lovely home and an even lovlier couple. Eric and Elizabeth made us feel incredibly welcome in their beautiful home. The bedroom is charming and the bed is super comfortable. The bathroom is a dream. The home is fully available for our use and they made us feel right at home. We felt like we made two great friends after a short weekend stay.

  • This was a fantastic find. Just outside the centre in a residential area which had some lovely cafes/ shops within 5 minute walk and also near to the trams. Eric and Elizabeth were lovely hosts and made us feel at home. Their house is beautiful. The mezzanine was great to sit on after a long day sight seeing. All in all an excellent find and would highly recommend

  • Eric and Elizabeth were most accommodating. Their home is beautiful, and super clean. I had the pleasure of enjoying their home theatre and it was indeed pretty awesome. Also, their recommendations on close by spots were great! I enjoyed every one of them. Close to transportation, quiet neighborhood, beautiful home. They were super helpful, and I would recommend their home to anyone staying in Toronto!

  • My wife Luana and I stayed with Eric and Elizabeth recently during the severe cold snap in Toronto. We arrived a little late but found Eric and Liz to be most welcoming. They had hot tea available for us and we were most grateful for that.

    Eric and Liz have recently completed a beautiful renovation of their home and have achieved a fantastic and spacious modern open concept design that is welcoming and comfortable. I particularly enjoyed using the home theatre projection TV to watch a late night movie.

    The room was very comfortable and clean. The whole house is spotless and Luana and I were very happy to have stayed here.

    As with so many homes in downtown Toronto, overnight parking for guests is not great. However I was able to find a spot a couple of blocks away. The great thing about Eric and Liz's place is they have a fire hydrant directly in front of their house which means loading and unloading baggage is very easy as no-one else can park in front of the house. This was a bonus considering the icy road and freezing cold the night we stayed there.

    Oh yes - Eric and Liz provide great chocolates too! We'd definitely stay again.

    Response from Eric:

    Thanks, Tarek! It was a pleasure meeting you.

  • We already had a good impression of Eric and his lovely wife Elizabeth from their profile and communications and certainly our impression was confirmed when we met them in person.
    They have done an outstanding job renovating an old house and turning it into a beautiful, functional and modern space. The guest room, although on the small side, is quite comfortable and being sole users of the spotless adjoining bathroom is a plus.
    We really enjoyed our stay in that neighbourhood, tried several cafés suggested by Eric and Elizabeth and would have walked a lot more in the area had it not been for the wintertime conditions.
    Thank you for the hospitality and hope to see you again!
