Description

The space

Welcome!

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.

Guest access

I am offering the living room/guest room as a bedroom to rent in this typically shared apartment. Your room is private, and extremely large with windows facing the main College St. strip, and has a clear view of the CN Tower. There is one double sized bed, and one pull-out couch available. You have your own sitting area and 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- Netflix included! Clean towels available on request.

The neighborhood

The building is central to so many great neighborhoods; Kensington Market (foodie & vintage haven), Little Italy (great restaurants & 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 only a 1 and (maybe) 2 minute walk away.

Getting around

The streetcar stops right outside the building- literally, 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.

Other things to note

Find a free NOW Magazine at one of the many distributors in the neighbourhood. This will keep you informed on city news, concerts, and restaurants!

Please check back for updates, and feel free to message me with any questions.

Note: This apartment is typically shared with people other than me.

Overall a very straight forward, open minded, and honest person who is always looking to be inspired.
A bit of a busy body! Independent and entrepreneurial- I welcome new ideas and experiences.
