The Space

Welcome to our wonderful house! We are offering you the entire house which includes 3 fully furnished bedrooms plus pullout sofa in the Living Room. We have 2 bathrooms with showers plus a large spacious living and dining room for gathering, eating and relaxing. If you need to work, enjoy our separate office (with stained glass window) with high speed internet, fax and phone.

The house is 125-yrs old and located on a tree-lined street in the heart of downtown. If you bring a car, street parking is available at a low cost but you can easily walk or take public transit to all major attractions, groceries, universities, yoga, shopping, dining and bars. This neighborhood is the hub of so many different kinds of ethnic restaurants, upscale coffee shops and laid back bars.

If you prefer to stay close to home, enjoy our flower garden on our front porch swing or eat in our gorgeous garden in the backyard. There are two lounge chairs and an umbrella if you want to sunbathe while watching birds, squirrels and butterflies visit our back gardens.

If you love to cook, then enjoy our completely renovated kitchen with high-end stainless appliances, stone counters and cabinets custom made by German kitchen designer.

This house is incredibly special and we know you'll love it as much as we do. Feel free to use our staples in the kitchen and our lovely linens. There will be a small extra cleaning charge for groups 4+.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Taz was very warm, open and timely throughout our correspondence. Although we did not meet in person, she was very accommodating to the needs of my guests and I (she allowed a later check out, even replaced a child's bed with a twin bed and offered herbs and produce from her backyard garden). Clear details and instructions for the house were provided prior to our stay, including a nice welcome card upon arrival! The house is a cozy retreat on a quieter street with a nice mix of older and newer decor and finishes. There is plenty of reading material and music to enjoy in the relaxing living room or front porch swing. The Annex is a vibrant neighbourhood just steps away from shops, grocery stands, cafes, bars, restaurants, public spaces and local transit, very convenient for my guests and I. Thanks again for a fantastic stay, this space is definitely recommended!

  • What a lovely haven in the heart of Toronto! Taz' house is quaint yet spacious with a fantastic porch swing and private back garden. The neighbourhood is friendly and helpful as well as being dog friendly! There are great cafés at the end of the road serving delicious breakfast and restaurants abound in the area. Taz was so accommodating allowing me to stay with my miniature dogs even though her listing does not allow. We discussed the situation beforehand having even met before our stay. She is a very warm and pleasant host and her home exudes a positive energy! I would not hesitate to contact Taz again for another stay!

  • Even if most of the listed facilities were there, I don't think that the 247$ daily rate I paid for this house is fair.
    We are a family of five and I was assured that the 3 rooms available were enough but one of the tree is for a kid of no more than 5, and my three girls have been required to sleep in two beds.
    The bathroom in the basement was very uncomfortable with lot of humidity and unfortunately was the only one with reasonable water pressure to take a shower.
    There was no space anywhere to put clothes and we had to leave them in our suitcase.
    I’m disappointed for the price paid vs the value received.

    Response from Taz:

    Gianluca is new to Airbnb and I believe his expectations were unfair. Everything in our house is beautiful, clean and exactly as described in the listing. All 20+ guests in our house have been very satisfied with their stay. Perhaps this guest is better off in a hotel--as he is the only person to write such a hostile review of our home! Feel free to contact me directly with any questions about a future stay. With warmth, Taz

  • There are rental houses, and there are houses that make you feel like home. This is definitely a home. Lovely neighborhood, tree-lined street, quiet yet close to everywhere, easy parking, short walk to Bathurst for public transportation. The house itself is old but thoroughly renovated with modern kitchen and a cosy living room. The three rooms upstairs are great especially if you travel with kids who want to bounce on bunk beds! The host was not there but sent all the info we need for check-in and check-out. She and her lovely daughter even wrote and decorated an oh-so-cute welcome note! My 7-year-old daughter says this is definitely a place she would like to come for a playdate, which says a lot about the welcoming vibe of the house. All in all, great experience!

  • Taz's home was great, it was everything my family were after on our trip to Toronto. It was very clean and centrally located and we would happily recommend for others to stay

  • Taz's home was clean, well-located, and well-maintained. Everything was just as advertised. Taz herself was very organized and easy to deal with. It was a great neighborhood to serve as a base to explore Toronto and see friends. The home is very family friendly with excellent playgrounds nearby. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. P.S. The street parking is very easy and convenient too.

  • Taz's house is lovely and in a great neighborhood. We were visiting our family who live nearby and the house was a much nicer place for all of us than a hotel.

  • Just as advertised, a beautiful home in a great downtown location. Very comfortable, very pleasant surroundings. The wonderful host Taz answered all of our questions and was a pleasure to talk with.
    We were 5 adults plus a guest that didn't stay overnight, and we were very comfortable.
    Thanks Taz for opening your home to us.
