Lake view condo located in the west end of Toronto. View of Lake Ontario, High Park & the CN tower from balcony. 8km to downtown, walking distance to Bloor West Village & Roncesvalles. Queen bed, full bathroom, full use of kitchen & laundry. Access to 2 pools, gym & sauna in the building.

The Space

My place has an open concept and has modern finishes. It has lots of natural sunlight with access to the balcony from both the bedroom and living room. It has 9 ft ceilings with new stainless steel appliances.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with a very comfortable Sealy mattress and the bathroom has a deep tub in which you can take a bath. The kitchen is fully equip for your use and you will also have laundry facilities at your disposal.

The condo has WiFi for your use and there is a TV with a DVD player (please note that I do not have cable TV...not a TV watcher :).

The view is spectacular - with views of Lake Ontario, CN tower, and High Park. It is steps away from the board walk, over looking Grenadier pond in High Park, walking distance to the trendy Bloor West Village and Roncesvalles. You can catch the Toronto street car just outside of the building which will take you right into downtown along Queen St W.

The building is located approximately 8km from the city centre and the Hwy is extremely accessible for those who are driving.

The building is quiet and peaceful, and has two pools, a beautiful outdoor pool with lounge chairs (open in the summer) and an indoor pool open all year round. It also has a well equip gym for your use as well as a male and female sauna. It has a theatre room with a movie size screen and lounge chairs (need to book in advance) and a tennis court. There is a 24-hour concierge.

***In your request, I kindly ask that you please include the reason for your visit, have a completed profile (including picture) and if you don't have a review/recommendation (i.e. first time using the way, first time users are welcomed, I was once there too!) I will ask for a
reference. As well, please ensure you are okay with the location and house rules as well. I'd like it to be a good experience for you and I. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!!

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is quiet and located west of the city, about 8km from the centre of the city. Located by Lake Ontario (view from balcony) and High Park (view from balcony). This is ideal for guests wanting easy access to the city but not necessarily wanting to be right in the city.

  • Shivon was an excellent host - very accommodating, friendly and even stocked the fridge with grocery basics. The place was exactly as seen in the pictures. I rented this space for my parents to stay while they were visiting, and they enjoyed it very much. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay that is as clean (or cleaner) than a hotel, with much more space and comfort!

  • The stay at Shivon's place was amazing! Not only was Shivon an amazing host, always willing to accommodate us and making sure that the stay was as smooth as possible. She is also an amazing person who would go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. The apartment itself was amazing, you get to see the sunrise over downtown Toronto in the morning, and all the the lights at night. The view of the lake was equally beautiful. The apartment was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again when I come to Toronto.

  • What a great find! I have to say, we were nothing short of ecstatic about booking my in laws stay with Shivon. She was simply amazing beginning to end.

    The apartment is perfect. Not only was it convenient as she lives just a few floors below us, but this unit is spacious, clean, and beautiful!

    The bed was also a big hit with my in laws. They said it was like sleeping on a cloud! true 5 star service :)

    The layout is great for cooking and having a nice dinner or read a book by the couch overlooking the gorgeous skyline, lake, and high park.

    All in all, Shivon is an amazing person (whom I will most certainly keep in touch with!)

    This is a great place, look no further :)

  • My stay at Shivon's was amazing yet again! :) This is my second time staying here, and it has been great! I consider her place my home away from home when I come to Toronto. As I mentioned in my previous review, Shivon is such an amazing person! And her place is beautiful, comfortable, cozy - I can go on and on! :)

  • Shivon was so kind and accommodating with such a beautiful condo with all the amenities. She went above and beyond as a host providing breakfast options, beverages, snacks & fresh fruit.
    I would recommend Shivon's apartment as it is in a beautiful, convenient location and you couldn't ask for anyone kinder to share their home.

  • Shivon was a great host, she gave us lots of advice about places to see and eat was very welcoming. She even invited us out for dinner.

    The apartment is fantastic, with a great view of the water and of downtown Toronto. Transport into the city centre is quick and easy and there's even a beach nearby. There are plenty of restaurants a short walk up the road too.

    We made use of the gym and swimming pool in the building, strolled through the waterfront park to Queen Street and generally thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in the apartment.

  • Where do I start? This condo is absolutely amazing! The view from the balcony is incredible....the bed and the couch are SOOOO comfy, the whole atmosphere is very calming. I really felt at home staying here. Whenever I visit Toronto I will definitely be returning.

    One of the best parts about staying in this condo was the host. Shivon is one of the most sincere people I have ever met. She is such an incredible person! :) Before my arrival she would send me emails asking if I had any requests and provided me with information on different events and entertainment happening in the city. She made sure I had everything I needed. During my stay, she would send me messages to make sure everything was going ok. As I arrived, she gave me a box of home made YUMMY cookies....she seriously went above and beyond! :)

    If you are looking at a great place to stay with a host that will provide excellent service, look no further. This is the place for you!;)

  • I absolutely loved staying at this off the lake condo right outside of downtown. I had a designated parking space, WiFi, washer, dryer, HDTV, super comfortable bed, awesome view from the balcony; along with just the cleanliness of the place I couldn't have ask for anything better especially at such a reasonable price!!!
    Shivon was an awesome hostess anything I needed or had question about she had answers, suggestions, and just all around helpful. Next time I come to Toronto I'm hoping she is available for booking, because this condo is my first and foremost choice :).

Hi Everyone! I live in the west end of Toronto with a beautiful view of the Lake and High Park -I love nature and water. I lived in Guyana and Jamaica prior to Canada and continue to enjoy travelling immensely. I first used airbnb in Summer 2013 when I travelled to Dallas & Costa Rica and thoroughly enjoyed my experience - it was more appealing to stay in the comfort of a home and meet great people and immerse myself in the culture. I will definitely continue to use it for future travels. As a result of my experience, I too decided to host upon my return to Canada and I've met so many great people. I love people, culture, travelling, movies, reading, open-mindedness, good food, hiking, salsa, and I am interested in women's issues and issues around diversity.
