If you are driving, you can easily arrange a city permit for street parking. Easy access to all downtown attractions - short walk to all streetcars to nearby downtown and subway system, many cafes and restaurants - live music, interesting shops, small galleries, parks, library, cinema, grocery stores, swimming pools, and Lake Ontario.
I have lived here for over 20 years and have rented the room to many people over the years. I am a friendly, progressive woman. I have travelled many places and love meeting people from around the world. Also living here is one sweet, friendly and curious tabby cat who will certainly make you her own!
I am a Toronto native and I enjoy hosting visitors to the city. I look forward to meeting you!
