No smoking inside, outside okay. No loud parties. It's a quiet neighbourhood.
And I ask that you keep the volume low when outside on the deck and on the porch, especially late at night, for the sake of the neighbours.
The house comes with all the basics you'll need: towels, linens, fully equipped kitchen, dishware, barbeque, barbeque utensils, cleaning supplies, detergents, iron/ironing board, hair dryer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Beaches House. The home is well equipped and beautifully appointed. Its modern but comfortable aesthetic was enjoyed by all. John has taken care of all the little details that make your stay a delight, from a daily paper to wireless Internet to a welcome basket of snacks!
The location can't be beat. The neighbourhood is beautiful and great to walk about. Just down the street are all the amenities you'll need. Kew Gardens has a wonderful play structure for kids as well as a wading pool, and just beyond the beach beckons. Around the corner the Beaches Recreation Centre has public swimming M-F which my boys loved. Check online for the hours.
We arrived at the house off a 36 hour journey from Perth and it was like landing in a big soft warm cocoon! I can't say enough good things about our stay at this house. If our little family could move in long term we would! Every single detail has been thought through perfectly and John has decked out the place in the best of everything.. from the super soft pillows, to the cushy mattress', fast/reliable internet, to every kitchen utensil you could hope for. The morning sun comes in through all the right places and the main bedroom is a highlight.. wooden shutters, a high pitched cathedral ceiling and a very groovy old school map on the wall.. very homely! John is a wonderful host, nothing is too much trouble. The morning papers and Body Shop washes were also a welcome touch. Thew worst thing about this house will be leaving it!
Great stay on Lee Ave. The house was immaculate with a cool interior, lots of great books and decor. Off street parking was great since it's a rarity in that area. Thanks John!
The Beaches House stay was a fabulous experience. John made it possible for us to feel right at home leaving no detail forgotten. This house is so conveniently located minutes from Queen Street, restaurants and shops. We look forward to many more stays Thank you John.
What can I say? What an amazing place! If someone hadn't been subletting my place in Toronto (requiring me to need another!), I'd never have found this! From the heated floors, to the daily newspaper, to all the kitchen applicances, gas stove, firelogs, tv channels, snacks and anything I'd need and more--it's all here!!!! Wild! I have to hire his architect one day!
And a really comfortable bed, new sheets, laundry room, internet, etc. etc., you couldn't ask for more! Even a rec centre next door! And lake down the street!
And, John is very nice and one of the best hosts I've had!
Great stay! John was an excellent host. He was there to greet us and accommodate all of our needs. (Even had complementary beer, wine and snacks for us to enjoy) Definitely recommend staying at this place. Amazing location and interior! Felt right at home!
