This room is quite large and airy with a King Bed. Windows open and we have air conditioning in the summer months.
Bathroom is shared if our other airbnb room is booked.
Our house is close to Little Italy (2 mins), Kensington Market (10mins), Queen St W. (15 mins), Bloor St.(5 mins), Ossington (15 mins), and University of Toronto (15 mins). There are dozens of amazing restaurants, cafes and bars nearby on Harbord, College, Bloor and Ossington.
We are close to streetcars (3 minute walk to both College and Bathurst streetcars) and Subway (5 min walk to the Bloor/Bathurst station).
We offer wireless internet. We have a fabulous cappuccino machine (JURA) and lots of tea choices available to you at any time. And you are more than welcome to store basic dry foods in our 'airbnb' drawer in the kitchen or in the fridge. We provide towels, linen and basic toiletries.
We don't have parking at our home and in downtown Toronto. You can't actually park on the street without a permit so we suggest parking in the underground parking lots (choice of two of them) at the end of our street or you can get a temporary on-street parking permit if you (website hidden) Temporary on-street permit parking City of Toronto.

Interaction with Guests
We are sometimes away when guests are staying. If we are in town one of us usually works out of the house so we are around.
We are in one of Toronto's most amazing neighborhoods, close to downtown but on a quiet tree-lined street with big old Victorian homes. It's safe and peaceful and blocks away from such vibrant neighborhoods as Little Italy, Kensington Market, the University of Toronto, Annex, Ossington and Bloor St.
Public transit is very convenient. We are located right by the subway line and streetcars and within walking distance to downtown.
We do not allow anyone into our house who is not a paying Airbnb customer. This is our private home and we welcome you to it but we do not welcome your friends or others into the house with you. :-)
we, a German couple, had a great time staying at Vicky; in the morning she shared the kitchen with us as breakfast-loving Germans very patiently and we got plenty of interesting tips for visiting the town.
The room is situated near to the stations of different streetcars and china-town is nearby. Nevertheless the place is very calm, situated in a street with nice traditional houses.
It's highly recommended to stay there.
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft ist absolut zutreffend. Das Zimmer befindet sich in einem sehr geschmackvoll eingereichteten Haus. Alles ist sehr ordentlich und sauber.
Es ist gut möglich Downtown zu Fuss zu erreichen oder alternativ bequem mit dem Streetcar oder der U Bahn.
Kensington Market, Little Korea, China Town und Little Italy sind in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Vicki und Richard sind sehr hilfsbereite und freundliche Gastgeber.
Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen und komme gerne wieder :-)
Very nice room in a calm and pleasant neighborhood. Little Italy, Kensington and Ossington St are however within easy walking distance. Public transport to Downtown Toronto and Harbourfront is available just around the corner. Vicky and Richard were nice and welcoming. Their advice for nice spots to eat in the area was very helpful. Communication was pretty formal though, set out in a long list of house rules they will probably ask you to explicitly declare acknowledgment of.
Information about accessing the house was given via airbnb-message, everything was easy. Room is nice, in a beautiful house, well-located for downtown or university visitors. Owners are friendly people, including a nice dog :-) I did not meet my hosts very often, but they had offered to be available for questions if I had needed something - which was not the case. I recommend the house for independent people like me who do not expect closer contacts with hosts.
As before, I had a wonderful time at Vicki and Richard's beautiful home. Everything was ready for me, all the details to ensure my stay was an exemplary one attended to. I feel so privileged to have this home as a refuge to come back to after a long and tiring day of traipsing around Toronto. Thank you, so very much for hosting me. I am sorry that our paths didn't cross this time, Vicki. There will be a next time though, so perhaps then.

About the Host, Vicki
We are world travellers and have lived in Europe, the US and Canada. We are passionate about entrepreneurship, how we learn, culture change, human potential, photography and design. We have a vast collection of books (from those days when people bought books) with lots of great photographs (Richard's passion, along with flying) around our home. We love meeting new people and making connections that make the world a better place. As we are often travelling we look for independent guests who can let themselves in and manage on their own (with simple to follow instructions that we leave for you!).
