Pets are welcome. House rule is to treat the place like you would your own home.
Wow, what a great property! In the middle of the entertainment district, close to everything (bring your walking shoes!) and a breathtaking view. Super comfy for my husband and I but would easily accommodate two couples or a small family. Well equipped with everything you need for a visit to downtown Toronto. And, Jon responded super quickly to my questions, before and during our stay. Thank you, Jon!
We had difficulty contacting our host by email, text, and telephone in the two weeks before arrival to confirm arrival details (although airbnb messaged us to try until immediately before arrival) so had to contact airbnb directly. Our host was apparently in Europe - his replacement was very pleasant and prompt on the day of arrival for keys etc.
The condo was in an excellent location in downtown Toronto and we took advantage of local restaurants, entertainment, and Galleries. The parking was very handy and we used the beautiful pool and deck one day.
The condo itself was clean and as advertised with excellent beds and showers and kitchen - the wrap around deck and view was superb - some outside chairs and tables would have been helpful.
The TIFF building (attached but you have to go outside to get to it) was a perfect place to catch the street atmosphere and we ate often at the Canteen on the ground floor during our 5 day stay. Noisy construction on the street outside TIFF (digging pipes under the street) was going on for the entire 5 days and could be heard from our condo and closed the Canteen terrace during the days (due to heavy trucks and diamond drill machinery feet away from the terrace.)
Our biggest problem was malfunction of the TV and Apple TV and computer network - first 2 days for our host to respond in Europe, and finding the hidden cable connection to the server (that was unplugged). It didn't work successfully for our entire stay even plugged in - very slow and cellphones couldn't connect , nor iPad for banking. We weened ourselves off TV news for the week which was an unexpected bonus that I am grateful for. I will however hate to get our cellphone bill this month.
We saw only one movie at TIFF Lightbox - the box-office couldn't give us an advanced list of movies for the week except the sold out performance we would have liked to attend. They kept referring us to the internet for their schedule and research (but we couldn't get the internet !). The listing of movies for the day appeared in the residence lobby each morning but we had plans for the day by then.
In spite of the problems, the potential of this beautiful condo are impressive. However the experience showed me how great it is to have a concierge for so many reasons in a busy city. Hotels aren't out of business yet!
Thanks for the late checkout for our 8pm flight - 29 breezy and sunny degrees on the balcony that afternoon is a pleasant memory...
Die Wohnung ist gut geschnitten. Die 2 Badezimmer sind groß und technisch gut. Der Blick ist umwerfend schön. Der Ballon ist sehr groß. Insgesamt eine schöne Wohnung für 4 Personen! Besonders gut ist zentrale Lage mit sehr vielen Restaurants und Bars in der Nähe. Wir werden die Wohnung wieder mieten!!
The apartment is perfectly located, in the heat of downtown Toronto. Nice and clean building, new construction with a great gym and a beautiful spa & pool area.
Jon was there to welcome us, communication was clear and efficient. The apartment is great, as seen on the pictures, and the views of Toronto and really cool.

About the Host, Jon
I'm an entrepreneur & designer working in technology. I love trying new foods and learning about different cultures. My favourite hobbies include diving, rock-climbing, tennis & kayaking. I lived in 3 continents growing up. Since then, I've had the fortune of traveling to 52 countries (11 via Airbnb!). Seeing the hospitality around us felt very natural & immediately made us want to give back and host. Since we joined Airbnb, we have hosted guests in 3 countries, and we have invited over 200 guests from all over the world into our homes :)
My girlfriend lives in Switzerland and my work often takes me to San Francisco, so I've started spending much of my time abroad. I grew up in Toronto and know the city very well, so happy to be the occasional tour guide!
