The best of loft lifestyle inside a 140 yr old brick house in the most sought after downtown neighbourhood of downtown Toronto!
I have two options in my home - the two story loft dwelling, or the newly built studio walk-out suite.
Hello Toronto Visitors:
Make yourself comfortable in my open concept downtown pied-à-terre home renovated with all the perks and finished with interior designer's touch. I have two options in my home - the two story loft dwelling, or the newly built studio walk-out suite.
Five appliances, chef's kitchen, fireplace, wireless, two flat screen TVs.
Spa bathroom with heated slate floors and walls, claw foot tub.
Front and back gardens with gas barbecue and dining in the back.
Steps from the hottest hood in town with cool new cafes (Roncesvalles Village and Queen West), boutiques and restaurants, on Queen West near Roncesvalles. Roncesvalles Avenue is an absolute must if you want to get the feel of downtown Toronto neighbourhood living - start with a latte at Cherry Bomb Cafe at the south end of Roncesvalles and then work your way north. Then head to High Park - the most gorgeous park in the region.
Steps from 24 hour street car and an affordable city parking lot. 20 mins streetcar ride to downtown and cab to airport. Five mins from lakeshore where there are beaches, boardwalks and the gorgeous High Park.
I travel on business and weekends and have family in the area so can stay with them when renting out the loft. Started a new business so need to be creative about cash management for the next while, which is why I am renting out my beloved loft home!
Also check out my modern log cabin in classic Canadian cottage country!
Access to everything! Even the stuff in the fridge!!
Interaction with Guests
I will be in the hood, or out of town, but always a text or email away.
It's the best - downtown hip, neighbourly neighbours, a park across the street and steps from shops, lattes and cafes, restaurants, food shops, galleries and 24 hour street cars.
Steps from street car, Car2go lot across the street.
No pets. Smoking only outside if you must.
Weekends $150 per night.
Check in and out times are flexible depending on your travel schedule.
You are welcome to use the kitchen supplies and the barbeque. Chef's kitchen and many local food shops make for a great combo.
I provide lock box code upon confirmation and then instructions in the house on operating the various appliances and gas fireplace.
We stayed at Susan’s place for about two weeks and our experience couldn’t have been better. The location is stellar. Roncesvalles is just around the corner and through that you have one of the best hoods in Toronto at your door step! Susan’s beautifully decorated loft was wonderful to stay in. It was bright, airy, and with all the conveniences you could need. Truly a cool place. Susan herself was very welcoming, accommodating and flexible. We would gladly recommend other people to stay at Susan’s and would without hesitation rent her house again.
Susan's place was exactly what I was looking for and everything worked out perfectly. She was very accommodating and super helpful with any questions we had. I couldnt have had a better experience.
We felt really fortunate to be able to stay at Susan's place for three nights. The house is very cute and in a quiet neighbourhood near some excellent breakfast spots. We were there shortly after a Toronto blizzard, so mercifully it was just 3-4 minutes from a streetcar stop in Queen West, near the Roncesvalles strip (great Polish restaurants, cafes, markets and little boutiques). If you fancy a midnight shawarma, roti or slice of pizza, you have plenty of options around! As for the house itself, it was very charming, cozy and warm - we got a lot of mileage out of the lovely fireplace. There was also obviously tons of care put in to decorating the house. And, as another reviewer has already commented, the heated slate floors and rainforest-style shower in the upstairs bathroom were certainly luxurious. Although we didn't get to meet Susan, she was easy to deal with, giving us all the info we needed regarding wi-fi and lockbox passwords, etc. Overall a super experience!
Charming space, very comfortable and with superb details. Enjoyed the very comfortable bed and bedroom dark enough to sleep late in the morning! Loved the shower room too, the open shower and heated floors make for a unique experience. Susan is an excellent host.
Susan has a great loft. The designer touches and eco-finishes are top notch and made for a luxurious weekend in Toronto. We especially liked the rain forest shower, sunny back patio, resplendent bed and the great access to funky queen west cafes and restaurants.
Definitely would recommend to friends and fellow AirBNB travelers.
I hosted some close family at Susan's place after another bnb reservation I had was cancelled at the last minute. Although we never met face to face, she was prompt and friendly with communication and My guests had a wonderful time. Beautiful and cozy and I will certainly recommend her place to future visitors i have here to Toronto
Susan's place was wonderful and exactly as advertised. It is clean, tastefully furnished, and made us feel at home the moment we entered. Susan's suggestions were wonderful and led us to the best croissants at Cherry Bomb. Thank you for a wonderful trip, Susan.
