About this listing
Great location, very central, close to everything!
Master bedroom and the common area of a beautiful 2 bedroom while I'm away.
Master Bedroom, great light, lots of space, large desk to work on, futon can be used as a spare bed.
I currently already rent out my master bedroom on airbnb (http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/275559 to see photos) but I travel a lot so I thought I'd post up my place for rent and try to plan my trips around when people needed a place.
Clean, convenient, condo at the intersection of Yonge St & Bloor St, in the center of Toronto.
Perfect for vacationers, people in town for business, and anyone looking for a temporary living arrangement.
I'm renting out the entire unit but my room will be locked so you will have the master bedroom and the entire common space to yourself. Master bedroom, 2 bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, living area, balcony, and access to the building's amenities like rooftop bbq, gym, movie room and game room.
30 second walk to both subway lines, taxi stand across the street, grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores, movie theaters, and more, all within 5 minutes walk. Lots of shops and transit available across the street underground and indoors to avoid the cold including everyday essentials like grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores as well as fun things like restaurants and a movie theatre.
Close to the University of Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum, and Yorkville (Toronto's high street for luxury shopping), this location can't be beat for convenience and selection!

Alice was a great host that was always accessible for questions yet completely gave us our privacy. The apartment is very nice, with a great rooftop and in an fabulous location. We would definitely stay there again.

About the Host, Alice
Hmm, a few things about myself...
I work in digital marketing, love food, photography, music, and travel. I've been renting on airbnb for over 2 years and it's been a great experience. I've been living in this unit for over 5 years and it's a great place, sunny, central, clean, convenient, and well-kept.
Favourite travel destination maybe Australia for the amazing food, beautiful beaches, crazy wildlife, and I have a lot of friends that live out there. It is a bit hard to pick favourites as there are things I love about so many places. I spent this past year traveling around Canada and it amazes me, Tofino on the Western Coast of Vancouver Island is stunning, Vancouver always has a special place in my heart, the Rocky Mountains and all the mountain ranges between Alberta and British Columbia are spectacular, and if you visit in the summer I can tell you all about the fresh water beaches in Ontario or all the great neighbourhoods in Toronto. I have yet to see the Northern lights and would like to visit northern Canada some day soon.
Favourite food, probably pizza because you can do so many things with it, a good hawaiian pizza with fresh pineapple is probably one of my favourites. I also love Chinese food, dumplings, noodles, braised pork belly, and just about anything with sichuan peppercorns.
Music, maybe Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, The National, Florence and the Machine, Foster the People, Jay-Z, Kanye, Pearl Jam, Muse, Sara Bareilles, and many others including classical, jazz, and many others.
Movies - Star Wars, Indian Jones & the Last Crusade, Harry Potter
TV - West Wing, the Wire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 30 Rock, New Girl, Chuck, White Collar, Burn Notice
Books - I wish I could say I was well read but most of the books I've read have been in school, ones that stand out are Red China Blues, Brave New World, Jane Eyre, Raj, the God of Small Things, and the Great Gatsby. I also did enjoy reading all the Harry Potter Books, Eat, Pray, Love, and Juliet Naked. Perhaps I should read more because when I do read, I tend to enjoy it. :)
As a house guest, I'm considerate and helpful. When I stay with friends I always clean up after myself and clean up in general, make meals, and try to help out where I can.
As a host, I like people to be comfortable and have had enough flatmates to know that what makes someone comfortable can be different for everyone so I also try to be flexible and accommodating. I prefer to communicate clearly and am happy to provide information and assistance when needed.
