An awesome apartment in a great part of the city. Great bars, cafe's and restaurants nearby & streetcar stop right out front. A fantastic apartment to relax in and cook a meal, or as a base for exploring Toronto.
Although I didn't meet Jayme, her communication was always easy to follow and helpful in every way - she was a great host. I would definitely stay again!
The location and the light in this apartment are simply brilliant! This is really a perfect apartment during the day. Jayme was also an excellent host. I went to several places she recommended and they were just as she described. I was surprised by the pounding bass from the bar below, though, as I was here early in the week.
Great location. Parking was cheap (about $22 for the entire weekend, Friday evening to Sunday evening) and right located across the street. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. It was pretty loud at night, there is a dance bar located under the apartment and they were playing music until 2:30am. Not the kind of music you can wear earplugs and ignore, you could feel the bass. Luckily for us, we were up anyway.
There are so many good restaurants and bars all around this apartment. It was exactly what we needed. Clean, spacious, comfy couches, nice sky light. Close to everything.
Jayme was accommodating, open and friendly to communicate with.
Jayme's place is really well located, close to many great restaurants and bars of Toronto. The apartment is nice and clean, spacious and bright, pretty much all you need to spend a good time in the city.
Lovely apartment in a nice neighborhood. Had a great time in Toronto!
Cute, sunny apartment in a fantastic location in terms of proximity to cool areas. Unlike the other reviewers, the music from the bar below did get to us. We were there Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, so maybe it was a particularly noisy weekend, but if you're a light sleeper, it might be a problem. Otherwise, it was exactly as described. Jayme was easy to reach, and the apartment was clean and had everything we needed.
The apartment was great. Bright, clean and nice to stay at. Jayme was forthcoming with everything about the location and the foibles of the place (ie: she can't clean the outside of the windows and the stairs). She was also quick to respond to emails.
I liked the vintage decor and the colours she used. The towels were thick and large. The sheets were cotton and the bed was firm, not bouncy. it was comfortable too.
Yes there is a bar below but it wasn't too bad. Earplugs worked a charm. The neighborhood is fantastic and you can walk anywhere you need. There is also nearby bixi bikes too. I would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
The apartment was everything it said on the web-site: clean, very light and airy, convenient, easy parking, and a bit noisy at night. Excellent bakery down the road and, as people have said, easy to jump on the tram. We enjoyed our stay.
Diese Unterkunft ist ein perfekter Ort, um die Stadt zu erkunden. Alles ist sauber und angenehm. Nur am Freitag und Samstag ist es bis morgns um 3.00 Uhr sehr laut, da ein Club an das Haus angrenzt. Also, entweder man nutzt an anderen Tagen diese schöne Wohnung, oder man feiert bis um drei Uhr mit.
