The description on AirBnB said "Best View in the City" and that really is an understatement! The condo itself is beautiful, comfortable, welcoming and tastefully decorated and we felt completely at home within a few hours of arriving. It's location on Wellesley is perfect for being walking distance to just about everything you need (or a short subway/taxi ride!) but of course, it's the breath-taking view of the whole city that really sets this apartment aside from the rest! It's definitely worth treating yourself by staying here! Shops, restaurants and bars are all within 5-10 minutes walk from the building and the other tenants in the building are friendly as well.
My partner and I had moved here from England and used this condo as a home base for a month to get settled and find our own home whilst our belongings were being shipped across the Atlantic and living in Rob's home made it very difficult to choose our own apartment as we felt spoiled with the space and the view it provided! Rob is gracious, helpful and accommodating to our requests and needs. If you're reading this review and trying to judge where to stay in Toronto for a spell, I can't recommend Rob and his beautiful home strongly enough!
What a place!
The pictures almost don't do it justice. Very comfortable, quiet and easy to access.
Rob went out of his way to ensure that nothing was left to chance. Key collection, parking and internet all went sooo smoothly!
We will be back shortly!
We were using the first time airbnb and didn't know what would expect us but we were not disappointed at all, it was exactly like on the photos.
Rob's place was just fantastic, very clean, a condo of high quality, nice furnitures and very comfortable beds, it made it easy to felt like at home. We could not stop watching at the marvelous view, especially at night, just incredible!
From booking to departure everything worked perfectly. Rob was always very prompt and responsive in his emails and the guest book was very helpful with all his suggestions.
Definitely a place we would go again if we ever would be back in Toronto and we highly recommend it!
Thanks again Rob!!
Rob's condo offered gorgeous views of Toronto, a well equipped kitchen, a beautiful, comfortable and very spacious common room (kitchen/living room), two nicely furnished bedrooms, a cozy alcove to work in or watch movies, a beautiful balcony overlooking the city, and more. This condo (in a high rise apartment building) offered privacy and great access to public transportation and opportunities to explore the city on foot. Access to a dedicated parking space and secure entry facilitated our stay. We also appreciated the care taken with the apartment--the request not to smoke and ban on pets, as this made for an allergy free environment for us. Rob also left very helpful suggestions (with directions!) on dining, shopping, sights not to miss. We enjoyed these recommendations. It was great!
We really had a fantastic time, Rob's condo is exactly like the photo's and the views are truly amazing! It really was a home from home with it kept to a very high standard. Would really recommend this as a place to stay and it is a great place to view all of Toronto and the surrounding tourist attractions such as Niagara and Niagara on the lake. It's in a great location with either a walk or tube into different districts and the balcony gets the sun all afternoon if you just want to rest the feet and have some relaxation!

It was a comfortable, well appointed condo with an amazing view, but feel that it was let down in a few areas.
While there are many gadgets in the condo, the only TV did not work and the only advice was to try moving the aerial and 'leave the bedroom door open'! Sadly neither helped! Thankfully we are not big TV fans, but we had planned to watch the All Stars baseball, which we couldn't do, so it spoiled an evening for us. Would have been more concerned if had young children with us!
In addition it was slightly disconcerting to have the condo full of the owners clothes with little to no room to unpack our own. Have lots of experience of renting apartments etc around the world and this was the first time I had experienced this, it did make us feel uncomfortable. In addition the fridge and cupboards were full of open food products. Also while there is a washing machine, drier and iron, there was no ironing board....
So overall it was a nice condo in a good location, with incredibly helpful concierges throughout our stay but in particular when they looked after our luggage after check out till we left for the airport.
Rob was wanting to understand more about me before he accepted me as a guest, and now I see why... Rob's apartment was amazing. Perfect location, perfect size, perfect everything! Given it was Rob's place and he was away, his friend Richard was our host. Richard was prompt with replying to all of our questions.
The location itself was less than 10 min walk to a subway, and cabs frequently drove by the apartment. Rob's Guest book was well detailed. We took advantage of all of his suggestions - especially the restaurants. Our only regret was not being able to tick everything off the list because we ran out of time.
If you're coming to Toronto, don't look anywhere else!
Rob's place was incredible and the whole process was seamless. He is not lying when he says it's the "best view in the city," it's really breathtaking and I felt lucky to wake up to the view every morning.
I had a three night stay at Rob's condo with three other friends. We found it to be clean and comfortable, and his art is especially interesting. For the four of us, there was plenty of space to lounge when we needed to relax. The beds were comfortable. The gym is actually very nice for a building gym, and the common areas were well maintained. There were no complaints from any of us.
The apartment is located about 3-4 blocks from public transportation, which made it easy to get around. Cabs are also readily available. And Toronto is definitely a walkable city.
Overall, a great stay. Thanks, Rob!
This is my first time using airbnb and I was glad to have booked Rob's place. The views are spectacular and the apartment is extremely comfortable to live in.
The apartment felt like home and was so pleasant to live in that we spent a significant amount of time indoors!
Would definitely book this place if I ever come back to Toronto
This condo is a perfect place to explore Toronto. The location is very nice, in downtown but still quite and calm. It is on a walking distance of about 10 minutes from two subway stations.
The overall building is quite new and the condo is fantastic. The most amazing thing is off course the view of the downtown. No words can capture the beauty of those stunning views which you can never get tired of. The interior is done in a very nice manner. Comfortable settings and extremely pleasant to the eyes. Nice clean washrooms, cozy beds, furnished kitchen area with full of eatables, nice tv lounge and absolutely fantastic living room.
Rob is a great host. He was prompt and responsive to all queries. The condo itself reflects the wonderful taste he has. The place is highly recommended for any type of stay.
