Charming walk-up apartment in Downtown Toronto located on top of a landmark Cafe. This is a Heritage Building and has so much character- High ceilings, and some of the old fixtures and detailing still intact. There is a full (although small!) washroom and kitchen to share, which leads out to a sunny back patio.
I am offering the living room/guest room for rent in this typically shared 2 bedroom apartment. Your room is private, and extremely large with two big windows facing the main College St. strip, and an amazing view of the CN Tower. There is one double sized bed and one pull-out couch available. You have your own sitting area and large desk, plus fun nick-nacks to keep your eyes entertained. There is a flat screen T.V in the room- feel free to watch any DVD you please! I also have a great cable package with included movie channels etc... There's got lots to choose from. Fresh towels available on request.
The building is central to so many great neighborhoods; Kensington Market (foodie and vintage haven), Little Italy (great restaurants and night life), China town (cheap eats), U of T (beautiful campus), Queen Street (trendy shopping), as well as the Club and Financial Districts. There is a nearby Laundromat and two 24 hour convenience stores, just a 1 and (maybe) 2 minute walk away.
The streetcar stops right outside the building, and it is only a 10 minute ride to both major subway lines. In the summer months, take the streetcar southbound to the Harbourfront... it's only a 20 minute trip! Also, this area is Bike friendly; with bike lanes and ample parking.
There are Bixis (Bikes) and motor bikes for rent directly across the street- this is a great way to get around the city.
