About this listing
CHECK IN 4PM - CHECK OUT 11AM
This beautifully remodeled house built in 1870 is located in South Cabbagetown and is close to everything in downtown Toronto. This spacious three story house offers keyless entry and hardwood floors throughout. This posting is for use of the bedroom and private bathroom with private deck - weather permitting - with a shared dining room and kitchen with myself and my husband.
The custom open concept kitchen / dinning room offers stainless steel appliances - gas stove/oven, dishwasher and microwave as well as black granite counter tops and glass tile back splash.
The 3rd floor bedroom has great light and is separated from the rest of the house by a private winding staircase up to the loft which takes the place of a doorway. The bedroom has a private bathroom with double shower as well as private deck usable in the late spring, summer and fall. There is a 42 inch plasma t.v. with basic cable as well as wifi access. You also have a small bar fridge for your convenience. Ironing board / iron, hair dryer.
Our neighbourhood is friendly and walking distance to most things down town - 10 minutes to the Eaton Centre - as well as close to public transportation - Street Car - along Dundas Street.
You can also rent our self contained main floor suite (see my other listing) for a few extra dollars a night. Parking available for weekend bookings ONLY
There is a cat and yellow lab in the house - both very friendly. *for the allergic type.
We are a professional couple working 8-5 Monday to Fridays. Please be respectful of our house and day to day life when you stay at our house. Absolutely no smoking permitted.
We had booked into the 3rd floor loft but then David offered a free upgrade to the Coachhouse at no extra cost which we happily accepted. The acommodation was perfect for us. It has its own separate entrance and is essentially a fully self-contained apartment with its own terrace (although not really warm enough to use at the time of our stay). It is very clean and tidy with plenty of space and storage for a short to medium stay. The location is good, we were able to walk downtown in 20 minutes, trying different routes. We found some nice restaurants on Parliament Street which is 10 minutes away and there is a supermarket nearby also.
We only met our hosts briefly at the beginning but found them very friendly and welcoming. I would certainly recommend them and their properties and would definitely try to stay there again if it was available.
We stayed at David's AirBnB for 3 nights - he upgraded us to the coach house which was very nice of him to do. The coach house was really nice - cozy, clean, and perfect for 2 people. We appreciated having the privacy and separate entrance and having all the amenities of a full apartment including laundry! The location is great - very fast access to Dundas Street and Queen Street which takes you downtown via the streetcar. Although we heard the area isn't the safest, we didn't have any issues during the day or when we arrived at 10:30 pm. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks David!
Seriously one of my best airbnb experiences just for the friendly and helpful hosts and their adorable pets! They made me feel welcome from the start and assured I had a perfect time in Toronto.
The room itself is spotlessly clean, offers a huge patio (you might see a cute racoon sunbathing), flat screen tv, quick wifi, and a stylish bath with double shower... no need to say more I guess :-)
Love the building as well that Dave and Luc have turned into a stylish and comfortable place. The tram is 5 min away, it's a 10 min walk to Yonge Dundas Square, which is like Toronto's Time Square. In fact most places to visit are even within walking distance or just a short tram ride away. So if you come to Toronto you'll have a great time staying at Dave's and Luc's place and I hope to visit soon again.
L’appartement est très beau, très propre et très bien équipé. Il est situé dans un quartier tranquille et proche du centre-ville (toutes nos visites se sont faites à pied).
David et Luc sont des hôtes très sympathiques et très prévenants. Nous n'avons manqué de rien et avons eu de bons conseils (restaurant, épicerie). Grâce à eux, notre première expérience avec Airbnb a été très agréable. Si nous revenons à Toronto, nous n’hésiterons pas à les recontacter.
Merci encore à vous deux pour votre chaleureux accueil.

The host was very attentive and friendly. He actually upgraded my accommodations from loft room to a small apartment. That was a very nice surprise.
The host gave me an introduction to the neighbourhood and local shopping. General location was very convenient for the purpose of my visit, and a short walking distance to the busy Toronto downtown Yonge St area.
I would surely try to book the same place again.
David's place is really great. They have a very nice system to get inside after you made your reservation (no key needed, just a code). The room is on the top floor and has a great (private) patio to have breakfast. The double showers are really great!
Awesome, awesome, awesome! David and Luc are awesome hosts, great communication right from the time of booking, very clear instructions on getting to their house and gaining access, really enjoyed meeting them, had a great time chatting, and they have some great recommendations for the local area. Awesome house, just loved this place. The whole place is spotlessly clean the bedroom at the top of house was amazing, clean, comfortable, great en suite, everything that was needed for a great stay. Awesome location, easy walk to most of the tourist sites, but public transport also runs close by.
I had an amazing stay here, thank you for making me feel so welcome in your home.
