You'll occupy a private room in a 1200 square foot, three bedroom condo. Your bedroom and bathroom is accessed from the entrance hallway, letting you choose how much or how little social interaction is enough. The common areas are yours to enjoy, and your host will be happy to assist in every way. A second bedroom and bath is also rented from time to time, and your host lives onsite at the opposite end of the apartment.
If you enjoy the excitement of urban life, you will LOVE this destination. As soon as you leave the quiet sanctuary of the apartment, you'll be swept away by the flow of the city - a current that could just as easily carry you to Toronto's waterfront, to its theatre district, to sports or shopping destinations, or to street after street of the city's finest restaurants and late night clubs!
Transit options rank 100% with immediate access to TTC buses, subways, and streetcars - literally just outside! Plus, you are one block from VIA and GO Service from Union Station. Shuttles to both airports are moments away, and taxis are readily available to hail on the street at all hours of the day or night!
A key consideration for me when I made the booking was the apartment's proximity to the convention centre, but I certainly got far more than I expected. The flat is beautiful, the room inspires me to have one just like it, and the attention to detail is evident all throughout. Above all, guests are treated to fantastic food and memorable stories that only those who have lived a full life can tell. Harry simply takes the airbnb experience to another level. Will be sure to stay here again when I come back to Toronto.
Hi Julie! Thanks so much for coming to stay! Meeting you was an extraordinary experience - learning about your life and having a chance to see the world through your eyes. I'm so excited by what lies ahead for you, and absolutely insist that your life remain fantastic and filled with continued adventure! All the best - Harry
My wife Luana and I stayed with Harry on perhaps the coldest night Toronto has experienced in a few decades. We arrived much later than we had originally arranged after bumping in to an old friend we had not seen in 20 years. Harry was gracious and hospitable despite our tardy arrival.
Unfortunately the underground parking was too low for our SUV but Harry has excellent knowledge of the neighbourhood and was able to provide precise directions to the nearest above ground parking lot.
Harry keeps his home immaculate and our room was spotless, comfortable and very well equipped with a flat screen TV and Netflix. I watched Philip Seymour Hoffman, ( may this gifted thespian rest in peace ) in "Jack Goes Boating" using the wireless Headphones Harry provides. This is a very nice touch and thoughtful as it allows night owls such as myself to be entertained without disturbing my wife, Harry or his other guests. Very thoughtful and convenient.
Luana and I are new to the Airbnb experience. If everyone is professional and friendly as Harry is and offer s such splendid accommodations we will definitely continue with Airbnb and we would hope to stay with Harry again in the future.
Sadly we did not get to sample Harry's world famous oatmeal as we slept too late. Hopefully next time.
Oh, yes - tremendous water pressure for those of you who like a strong hot shower !
Hi Michael, Hi Luana! I'm delighted that you enjoyed so much in such a short time! In terms of hours and minutes it was a very short visit, but happily time stretched out long enough that we had a good chance to get to know one other. That was the pleasure for me, meeting you both, learning about your lives and interests, and seeing how well you've done with feet placed firmly in both the country and the city! Well done! I'll look forward to another installment when you return. - Harry
A repeat stay for me and I found myself really looking forward to it. Can't say enough about Harry. An absolute gentleman. Incredibly personable and I was again struck by the great lengths he goes to for his guests. A really beautiful apartment, very well appointed and an immensely positive vibe that made me feel at home. Really loved the stay and my impression of Harry continues to soar. An exquisite apartment and a truly amazing host !!
Hello Jesapais, Thanks once again for the very kind words - I'll do my best to live up to them! But know this, my pleasure in having you in my home is immense. It makes it easy for me to make every effort so that you feel comfortable and appreciated. So top marks to you as well! We'll do it again very soon! - Harry
Thank you for staying here.
Because, the house and room are very safe and clean. and well designed by Harry. The room is very comfortable to sleep, including tea, Netflix. Also, in the morning, harry serve the breakfast for me, and it is very delicious and enjoyable.
Harry is very kinds and hospitable mind to guests.
If I have a chance to go Toronto, I would stay on there.
Believe me, the choosing this house is best way to stay in Toronto.
Hi Eric! It was a very pleasant experience meeting you and sharing some time together. I particularly enjoyed the afternoon when we both were working together, you studying and me at my computer. It's rare to meet someone who sets me so at ease - a very successful visit! Thanks so much and do come again! - Harry
Harry has a gift for hospitality - he's a superb host and...if he offers you porridge, just say yes. Best porridge I've ever had. I'll be looking him up when I'm back in Toronto!
Incredible host.. stunning apartment !! Absolutely thrilled with my stay and the overall experience very much enhanced by Harry who was very responsive, conscientious and focused on his clients comfort and well being. The room was spotless, incredibly comfortable and totally surpassed expectations. I quite literally felt like I was in a very high end luxury hotel. Amazing rapport with Harry and thoroughly enjoyed the interaction. Really looking forward to repeat stays. Very highly recommended !!!
Hi Jesapais! Words fail me after reading your review! Thank you! I am so delighted you found your way to my door, and that I was able to make you so comfortable. My experience of your stay was just as positive! You're the first guest to book two more visits even before departing, and that, too, puts a smile on my face. I will be happy to welcome you and to enjoy your company again. Many thanks - Harry
I really can't say enough good things about Harry and our accommodations at his place. Based on the reviews that were left, I had high hopes for the place and Harry still blew them out of the water. Clear and prompt communication, great conversation over coffee, clean and comfortable bedding, tasty & healthy breakfasts, and a central location made our stay perfectly enjoyable. We'll definitely be back soon! Thanks Harry!
Hi Chris, Hi Sarah! I want to thank you - and likely not for the reason you might think. I grew up along the Canada/US Border, and yet have had only passing chances to talk with Americans about the important stuff of life. Our chats gave me a lot of comfort that borders don't matter too much, and that there's a global community of folks with real heart, and we're all alive and well, growing stronger across generations, sometimes irrespective of the political tides within our own countries. I liked what you both stand for! Do come visit me again! - Harry
Harry is an amazing host! Me and my girlfriend stayed at his listing for about a week and it was so far the best experience we had on Airbnb. His place is very tidy, comfortable and well-located. Apart from that, Harry is a very kind and regardful host. He made sure to provide us everything we needed to have an excellent experience! The breakfast was served everyday...fresh and delicious. Harry gave us all the local insights for visiting Toronto and the surrounding area. The communication between us was great and we just felt home. If you are looking for a great Airbnb experience in one of the best location of Toronto, that's definitely the place for you! Hope to come back soon. Thanks Harry =)
Ah Marcelo, Thanks! And thank you, too, for bringing Carolina with you from Brazil! It was a great week together and so nice getting to know you both. I admired your resourcefulness and curiosity - digging into the corners of Toronto, and then making the day trip to Niagara Falls. It was fun for me to watch the fun you both were having! All the best. I won't say goodbye - just wait for your return! – Harry
Harry is one of the greatest host you will ever meet. He is very kind and caring and he will do everything he can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Harry made sure we always had a good breakfast in the morning, which was wonderfully tasteful every day. Harry was always prepared to share information with us about the best places in the city and the way to get around, which made our trip so much more valuable and relaxed.
The room was spacious and decorated with great taste. The bed was very comfortable and the complimentary Netflix was great after a long day exploring the city. The bathroom was very clean and the shower was amazing! (Very good water pressure)
The whole house was very clean, tastefully decorated and it’s a very nice place to come home every day. The apartment has an excellent location right in the center. Everything you need is within walking distance, including the train station, metro stations, shopping areas, dining areas and lots places of interest to visit.
We had and excellent time in Toronto, without Harry it would not have been the same. If we come back to Toronto we would definitely like to stay with Harry again. Harry, it was so nice meeting you, thank you so much for your hospitality!
Hi Kevin, Hi Lydia! Your visit was just as nice for me! It's always so much fun to get a new sense of Toronto through the excitement and enjoyment of my guests. However, our time together was made even more special because we ended up such good friends. You were both terrific! Please come and see me whenever you're in town. That would make me very happy indeed! All the best – Harry
It was really comfortable and useful for me to stay at the Harry's condo. Harry is a nice host!! The room and private bathroom are clean and huge. Although I left there early morning, he was so kind. I'd like to stay longer.
Hello Mika! I'm so glad that your trip to Toronto made you happy. It was fun for me, too, helping you plan your itinerary - and making suggestions about what you might like to see. You certainly did well, taking in so much of the city in just one day! Perhaps you'll come again, and if you do, I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself all the more. I will certainly welcome you back. You're an excellent guest! – Harry
