Beautiful shared condo in heart of downtown. You get private bedroom and full bathroom. Full use of kitchen, laundry, living room, and access to the building's beautiful pool, hot tub, sauna and gym. And the owner/resident is very creative and nice!

The Space

I am the manager of the condo for my client, who is a public figure who needs privacy online. He has filled out what is written about the condo below. He's male and lives in one bedroom with his own full washroom, and you'd be in the other bedroom with a full washroom of your own. My client is very friendly and full of local advice, and is also very creative and loves to meet fellow creative people. If you're into talking to someone who lives a very interesting life and is in the media for many of his projects, you'll love meeting him. Message me for more details and more photos of the unit.

Okay, here is what you get! --->

YOU GET: 1 private bedroom (9' x 9'9") in a shared 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo. I'm living in the other bedroom. Your room includes a Queen-size, pillow top mattress, 2 nightstands with drawers, a full closet with wire baskets and hangers. I provide clean, fresh white linens on the bed, and all the clean, white plush towels you need (bath size, personal size and face cloth). You have exclusive use of your very own stylish, modern guest bathroom with a shower stall featuring a rainforest shower head. I have hotel size body wash, soap and shampoo if you need it.

NO SMOKING: No smoking in the unit. No smoking on the balcony. I'd actually prefer people who don't smoke at all, because the smell stays on your clothes and body. My health is very important to me and I don't want unnecessary smoke in my place.

WHERE I AM: I'm living in the other bedroom and have my own bathroom in there. I'm available to offer advice about the city, to have a nice conversation with, or to help you with any needs that come up. If I'm not at home, just give me a call or email.

ABOUT THE UNIT: The condo unit is large, and has a huge balcony overlooking a fun, busy street. The windows and balcony give you the best view of the city you could ask for.

BUILDING AMENITIES: Bring your bathing suit and gym clothes, because the condo has a pool, hot tub and gym.

YOU CAN USE: Please enjoy full use of the kitchen. Full set of dishes, glasses, mugs, cutlery. Kettle. Fridge, stovetop, microwave oven. I've also got a washer/dryer if you want to do laundry. I some umbrellas. And shopping carts, if you want to walk to get groceries. If there's anything else you need, please don't hesitate to ask me.

ECO AND ALLERGY FRIENDLY: I keep the condo non-toxic, eco-friendly and scent-free. The sheets/towels are washed in scent-free, eco-friendly detergent. The hand soap is natural and non-toxic.

PARKING: I can rent you the parking spot I own for an extra $20 a night.

TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM AIRPORT: Paula has a car and is sometimes available to provide a ride to or from the airport for less than a cab. Alternately, a cab from Pearson Airport is about $55 plus tip. Or you can take a TTC bus and subway.

NEIGHBOURHOOD: We are in the heart of downtown Toronto, steps from theatres, CN Tower, Rogers Centre, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, etc.

WANT TO CHAT? OR NOT CHAT? I'm very friendly and love to make new friends. That's a large part of why I'm on this site. Some airbnb guests have become friends I still keep in touch with, which I think is wonderful. So, if you feel like socializing, that's great. But I also don't want to bug people if they just want to be quiet and keep to themselves. So, if you want to chat with me while you're here, please say hi. :)

SPEAK FRENCH? PARLEZ FRANCAIS? Je parles francais aussi!

Guest Access

The male owner/resident lives in one of the bedrooms with his own bathroom. You'll have the other bedroom, with your own full bathroom right beside the bedroom. And you're welcome to use the kitchen, fridge, stove, laundry, enjoy the living room and dining room and large balcony... Just hang out and make yourself completely at home. :) You can also enjoy the amazing pool, hot tub, sauna and gym facilities.

Interaction with Guests

Hi, this is the male owner/resident writing. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories and sometimes even collaborating on creative projects. But I know that some people like their own space and don't want to talk much. So please let me know if you'd like to chat and socialize with me. I have given people lots of space before and stayed out of the condo most of the time, and I've heard afterward from Paula that the guests wished I'd spent more time with them. So just let me know if want to chat and hang and I'll make sure to hang out. :)

The Neighborhood

The condo is in the heart of the entertainment district, steps from tons of restaurants, theatres, the Metro Convention Centre, the Rogers Centre, TIFF Bell Lightbox and more.

Getting around

The condo is close to streetcars and subways. You can't have better access to transit in Toronto.

  • Amazing! Communication was easy and Paula was great! The condo was clean and well located. I could not have asked for a better location. It is in the heart of the action with restaurants and bars just a few steps away. Paula was super welcoming and helpful with any questions. I recommend staying here for anyone visiting the city and would definitely stay here again when I return.

  • My fiancé and I stayed for one night. Communication before our stay was easy and timely. The building is located in a fantastic location, with tons of restaurants, bars, and tiff-related things footsteps away. The unit itself was very nice. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and very clean. I would definitely recommend staying here

  • Great spot. This was a working trip for me, so I wasn't around the condo very much, but Josh was very hospitable and accommodating despite my late arrival time. Great condo with a beautiful view of the city, great gym facilities, and most important - a super comfortable bed! Awesome location. Highly recommended and look forward to coming back.

    Thanks so much! It was great to host you. I'm glad I could give you a place close to where you were doing your important work helping the world. Hope I can help you out again soon. And perhaps I'll run into you when I'm visiting Ottawa. :)

  • The bedroom and the apartment were just perfect! The host is a really nice guy and we had a excellent stay. It is a perfect place in the middle of downtown Toronto, so it is easy to explore the neighborhood and see all the cool stuff. I would recommend it to everyone! A little bummer, the pool was closed for maintenance.... Thanks for the stay! Cheers!

    Thanks so much! It was great to meet you. And thanks for the lovely Dutch candies you left me... And the Steamwhistle beer! It was great talking to you about your studies. I know you're going to come up with an amazing invention that will change the world. Hope to see you again soon!

  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appart très sécurisé et qui de plus, est IDEALEMENT situé pour toute personne souhaitant visiter Toronto, car proche des commodités, du Chinatown ,du waterfront, du CN TOWER, des stations de metro....A noter également que beaucoup d'attractions sont "within walking distance". Tout est comme sur les photos, avec de plus une literie très confortable.
    Josh, lui, est un hôte très sympa , très discret et peu présent mais qui répondait a nos messages dès que possible. Nous en profitons pour lui adresser tous nos remerciements pour la rapidité de ses réponses. Merci également a Paula qui est venue nous chercher a l'aéroport.
    Nous ne manquerons pas a partager cette bonne adresse a toutes nos connaissances qui souhaiteraient visiter Toronto.

    Response from Jennifer:

    Merci beaucoup! C'etait un plaisir! Hope to host you again soon!

  • Josh's place was just amazing. Centrally located, really clean, soft pillows and a hot shower. Josh himself was a responsive host and friendly. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Toronto!

  • Apartment was great! Very clean, quiet, and sunny, perfect for one or two people. Paula was there to drop off the keys and explain everything. We didn't see Josh around that much, but when we did he was friendly as well. Overall, had a great experience in Toronto and apartment definitely helped (location is unbeatable).

  • amazing apartment, immaculate and comfortable, no issues whatsoever. the owner wasn't in town during the one night that we were there. would recommend to anyone as this modern and attractive condo is a gem and priced very fairly. thanks paula!

  • In an effort to keep this place for myself during my frequent trips to Toronto I'd like to say the apartment is dive and the host is jerk, but in fact, the complete opposite is true. The apartment is perfectly located in the city - on a streetcar line and only three blocks from the subway (which you will likely want in Toronto as its much faster than the streetcar). The bed is very comfortable and the room quite. Great shower, incredible views, and the whole space is just like it appears in the photos. The host is a great guy who knows the city well and is happy to help you find anything you might want; a warm, charming, intelligent and helpful fellow. And if you're in town for TIFF - don't think, just book this place - you won't find a better location.

  • Paula was great in greeting us and making us feel welcome! We then met up with Josh and talked a bit. He was not there that much but always available on the phone. But actually it was perfect for us because we pretty much knew what we were doing in Toronto. Almost felt like we had the place to our selves. Great condo, very nice, pool is really cool, location is PER-FECT! Hope to stay there again!

I manage the condo for a male friend of mine. He's the owner and resident of the condo, so you'll be staying with him when you book for the shared accommodations. He's very friendly, funny, creative and lives an amazingly interesting life. He's a bit of a public figure, so doesn't want his profile on here. But message me and I can send you his info. If you're into creative and world-changing pursuits like acting, screenwriting, song writing, comedy, progressive politics, environmentalism... You'll enjoy networking with him!
