About This Listing
Located in the funkiest downtown neighborhood, this cozy studio is ideal for 2, comfortable for 3. Steps to vibrant street life: music, cafes, galleries, yoga studios, fresh organic produce. Centrally located--walk everywhere. Easy 24/7 transit.
This great apartment is located in the midst of Kensignton market--the funkiest neighborhood in the city--in the heart of old downtown Toronto. Kensington Market is an urban multicultural blend of cafes and restaurants, clothing stores, art studios, and specialty food stores. There is live music on the corners all summer and even throughout much of the winter. This is definitely the spot to be for hip, indie, and alternative types.
The house is steps away from two 24 hour major city transit lines, and walking distance to the University of Toronto. We are ideally located for exploring Toronto's main attractions. It is an easy stroll or a quick streetcar ride to the Royal Ontario Museum, the AGO, the harbourfront, the CN tower, King Street Theatres, Queen Street shopping, Roy Thompson Hall etc. We are also located close to the major Hospitals..
The former studio of Longboard Living, this basement level apartment of a funky Victorian house has been recently renovated and features a tiled shower, glossy floors, exposed brick, bright colors, and an eclectic style typical of Kensington Market. It is right in the midst of fresh organic produce and funky clothing stores. Go vegan in the morning, hit China Town for lunch, and head to Little Italy in the evening—all within an easy stroll.
The apartment is fully outfitted with everything you need, sleeps four, and has wireless internet.
At Kensington Suites we want to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Please help us by separating your waste into one of the three separate bins: one for landfill, one for recycling, and one for compostable stuff (table scraps, paper towels, etc).
Also, it would be much appreciated if you could turn down the thermostat when you are out of the apartment to help save on our natural gas usage. We a have a wonderful hot-water radiant heating system in the apartment, so it warms up very quickly as soon as you turn the heat up again.
Mielle was a wonderful host. The place was funky, clean, and exactly as described. There was a nice welcome basket with organic fruits, granola, honey, coffee & tea!
The neighborhood was great! Great food, funky shops! And cheap parking very close to the suite.
Streetcars were cheap & easy for us to get to the Toronto General Hospital.
Would definitely recommend. :)
The location of this apartment was incredible, we couldn't believe our luck. Central to everything and easy to access, we couldn't recommend it more.
Being a basement, it does tend to be very dark very little sunlight getting in, and if you're tall be aware that the ceilings are very low! We bashed our heads a bit!
We also struggled to get in touch with the host on one occasion, and the back up numbers went through to voicemail, which was a bit tricky.
Overall we had a great time. Thankyou.
Nous avons été accueilli au studio par un beau panier de déjeuner, du café, des fruits et quelques collations. L'attention fut très appréciée. Le studio était fidèle au photo et bien équipé pour un court séjour. Nous n'avons manqué de rien. Le quartier est vraiment génial! Kensington market est un incontournable de Toronto et on s'est senti privilégié de pouvoir y séjourner.
This was an amazing apartment for myself and two teens. Getting in and out with the number pad was no problem. The bedroom is set away from the futon couch area, affording me a bit of privacy when the kids wanted to stay up late and I wanted to sleep. We appreciated the granola, honey, fruit, milk etc that were left for us. Wifi was good. Really, you couldn't ask for anything better given the price and location. The area is steps from an amazing, multicultural market with different stores, foods, vintage shops, etc. Two streetcar lines are within minutes away, as is a very reasonable overnight parking garage. We can't wait to come back!
Listing is exactly as described and everything was perfect. Great location right in the middle of Kensington Market. Plenty of space for three people and apartment was very clean Next time I am in Toronto I hope to stay here again!

About the Host, Mielle
I am a gypsy scholar currently in the rainforest in Costa Rica studying biodiversity and eco-tourism. When in Toronto I teach at York University. My passions include yoga, rock-climbing, hoola hooping to groovy music, blues, and exploring tropical paradises. I strive to live an ecologically and socially conscious life, to do no harm, and, as hokey as it may sound, to make the world a better and more just place. The apartments at Kensington Suites reflect the eco-conscious and eclectic nature of the funkiest neighbourhood in the city. Welcome.
