***IMPORTANT*** When you're requesting the booking there is a spot on the form that will ask for the number of people. ONLY INPUT THE NUMBER OF ADULTS OVER 16 YEARS OLD. If you include children in this section airbnb will charge/invoice you for them and they will not be free. Please advise us of the number of children in the 'message portion' of the booking request only.

This is a Legal apartment & meets all fire & safety codes. (fire doors, hard wired smoke detectors, carbon detectors etc) It's good for people with allergies or environmental sensitivity. (High particulate air filter, cork flooring, low VOC paints.) The bedroom is not fancy but perfect if you just want somewhere comfortable to sleep at night. Lower ceiling in bedroom but common room higher and bright.

Our home is close to the Scarborough Bluffs and Lake Ontario. Public Transportation is a block away and gets you into the heart of the city in approx 30 minutes. We're close to the Toronto Zoo & the Ontario Science Centre. For those with a vehicle: we're right off the TransCanada highway and less the 10 minutes to hwy 401. Close to all major highway arteries. Go east to Ottawa or Montreal, west to Niagara Falls or north to Algonquin Park. it's a great location for accessing the CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, Casa Loma, Canadas Wonderland, Rogers Centre, The Beaches etc. All areas of Toronto are accessible from here with public transportation.

It's perfect if you just want an inexpensive place to sleep for the night. (when we backpacked around Europe we dreamed of an inexpensive simple place like this.) This is NOT a luxury hotel. We just happen to have an empty apartment and thought it might help travelers/students who would rather spend their money on sightseeing & exploring then on a hotel. We're happy to offer travel tips, directions & advice if you ask.

We love to travel and love to share unique things to do around the city with our guests. If we're not plugged into something you're interested in then chances are someone in our
family will be. Whether it's traditional tourist hotspots, hiking/biking trails, farmers markets, unique sites for photographers, clubs or the music scene...etc. Feel free to share your interests with us and we'll do our best to get you going in the right direction. I even know where there are beaver dams 10 minutes from our house. Toronto has some great culturally diverse neighborhoods & festivals so enjoy exploring!!!!

  • We never got to meet Tracy, but Jamie was great. He met us when we drove up, answered every question imaginable, and had great suggestions for dinner in the area. He even printed out our Niagara Falls tickets for us.

    The apartment is about a twenty minute drive from the city, but is in a great location in Scarborough. A grocery store across the street, a great little pub a few minutes away, and an easy drive downtown. There is parking on site, and the apartment has its own private entrance. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Jamie and Tracy's apartment and surrounding area offers the traveller a home away from home. It is simple and warm and we were able to access the bus and metro to get into the city. Jamie and Tracy also have metro maps, tourist information and local maps available. Check out the bluffs if you can. Easy access to the address from the freeway. Would recommend to others.

  • Jamie & Tracy were wonderful hosts! Their apartment was exactly as described and we found everything we needed. The off-street parking was very convenient as it was near the private entrance to this lower-level apartment. The hosts had everything ready for us and checked up with us periodically to see if we had any needs.
    This was a great experience for my family and we look forward to coming back to stay with them in the near future.

  • We had a group of 3 stay for a spring break trip: The space was comfortably accommodating for 3 people, within walking distance of essentials like food, and within short driving distance from most tourist attractions & nightlife entertainment. The hosts are nice and accommodating and the apartment was well stocked. It is a basement apartment so the ceilings are low and movement is pretty tight. Other than that we all enjoyed our stay and recommend it for anyone looking for a comfortable stay on a budget!

    April 2014
  • Jamie is very hospitable and accommodating. We appreciated the private entrance, and the ability to come and go without disturbing them. The accommodations met our needs well, at an affordable rate. We look forward to an extended stay next time.
