About this listing
Enjoy our Toronto home while we're away. Five min walk to Eglinton station on the main Yonge subway line. Excellent local shopping, movies, restaurants, bars. Short subway ride to theatre district, TIFF venues, Eaton Centre
Our place is a typical Toronto semi-detached. On the main level is living room, dining room, TV room, kitchen and 2 pc bathroom.
Upstairs is a 4 pc bathroom, a bedroom with new queen bed with a Casper memory foam mattress and an office with a new queen-size sofa bed with pillow top.
On the lower level is a bedroom with a queen bed and a 2 pc bathroom and laundry.
What makes our home special is that we're five minutes from the Eglinton station on the Yonge subway line and we back on to beautiful Eglinton Park so the views are all green at least in summer.
You'll find everything you need for a great stay -- staples in the kitchen, lots of fresh towels, laundry soap by the washing machine etc. Just help yourself. We've been airbnb guests ourselves and know that the little extras make a big difference when you're visiting somewhere new.
You'll also enjoy the main floor deck looking over Eglinton Park and the lower level walkout directly into the park and children's playground with splash pad available in July and August.
Interaction with Guests
We're offering our place while we're away on holiday so you'll be met by our neighbour Kathy who will show you around, give you the key and make sure you know where everything is.
Our neighbourhood -- called North Toronto or Midtown or simply Yonge and Eglinton -- is a wonderful mix of quiet leafy residential streets (like ours) and a vibrant busy shopping district with great shops, grocery store, liquor store, excellent restaurants and bars, a dozen movies playing at two multiplex cinemas -- all a 5 min walk. We'll leave you info on our favourite restaurants and shops.
We're only a 5 min walk to the Eglinton station on the main Yonge subway line so you can be downtown in 20 minutes. Both Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave. are major bus routes.
We're a 30 minute taxi from Pearson airport.
If you need parking, you can apply for street parking on the City of Toronto website -- $19.66 per week, $8.39 per 24 hours or $12.59 per 48 hours, plus H.S.T.
Other Things to Note
Also available for use are baby/toddler stuff -- new crib, change table, high chair, potty -- all IKEA -- and stroller, toys and other necessities courtesy of our grandsons.
No pets (but we're open to discussing small well-behaved dogs and neighbour Kathy offers dog-sitting for a fee). No smoking.
