I live on the 3rd floor in my Private Apartment. There are 5 rooms being rented. Most are Co-Op/Pharmacy students ... gone on weekends ... prefer the privacy of their room and spending time on their computer/cell phones!!

2 blocks from Major Bus routes (Weber & Frederick) ... 8 minute walk to Bus Terminal ... 10 minute walk to Go Train/Railway Station.
The place is newly renovated ... Quiet & Clean.
My tenants rarely have guests ... prefer the quiet space and go into town for their entertainment.
For the Kitchen & Bathrooms .... leave them as you found them ... CLEAN!!!!
The price was right, the host was congenial and cooperative, but the facility was not what I had expected from the ad. Perhaps I mis-read the ad but it sounded like the host was renting a house when in fact he was renting one bedroom in a house shared with 4 other tenants. I did not realize this until I physically set foot in the place and was given the tour by the host. When I realized this, I apologized to the host for my misunderstanding and opted to go to a hotel instead. I did not ask for a refund since the mistake was probably mine but after reading the ad again, I still feel it should be worded differently.
The room is big. Very comfortable. Fast network connection. Very close to the downtown. I pretty enjoy my stay.
