  • This was my first stay at an airbnb apartment- will never book a hotel again. Shelley's place was absolutely incredible. The private terrace and view alone were more than worth the cost. But apartment itself was also perfect- spotless, trendy, interesting, and convenient. I don't know what more I could have asked for. Oh, and possibly the best location in the city. Forget all those boring hotels downtown, Shelley's apartment is right on Queen St. West, with a grocery store right in the building, free underground parking, tram line in front of the building, and surrounded by endless shops, restaurants, and bars. And Shelley was a gracious host, providing us with detailed instructions for the apartment and helpful suggestions for our travels in Toronto.

    Only problem is now I want to move to Toronto.

  • I'm pretty convinced this is the best location in the city. If I were to move back to Toronto it would be in this building. The unit is awesome. The view and massive terrace were perfect. Shelley was a breeze to deal with. Even the parking lot was amazing! When I stay in Toronto, it will be at Shelley's place unless its already booked! Thanks again!

  • Thank you Pall and Shelley! Our stay was wonderful, beautiful condo, and Shelley was very hospitable and flexible.

  • Shelley and Pall's condo was conveniently located just a stone's throw from the many shops and restaurants on Queen Street West, the 501 streetcar, a Loblaw's supermarket, Bank of Montreal and a pharmacy. If you enjoy getting around a city by foot, Chinatown is within walking distance, as is the CN Tower, Art Gallery of Ontario, the harbour, theatre district and even the airport (Billy Bishop Airport).

    Weather was still too chilly to benefit from the amazing patio and view, but summer time vacationers will be pleased. Condo was quiet with good natural light. Decent sized place for two people. Coordination with Shelley for check-in/out times was simple and flexible.

  • First time staying in Toronto, so we were thrilled to be in such a great location. Everything was wonderful, we did not want to leave! You got to check out the patio, it Rocks!

  • The place was very clean and close to everything. Shell was really great to work with and we had a blast on our trip to Canada!

  • Very clean and spacious place. I felt like I was at home, it felt very comfortable and relaxing. What I loved about Shelley's place was that she was very flexible and willing to accommodate for last minute changes.

    Her place was within walking distance to everything, bonus points for being so close to Loblaws.

    Will definitely love to stay at her place again, thanks for the amazing time!

  • Shel's space is amazing. Great views of the city, Pretty close to everything. She was very responsive and accommodating. The apt is actually larger than pictured. It's clean and comfortable. I went New Years Eve so the weather wasn't great to enjoy the deck outside but if you go during the warmer months its a great space. I would definitely stay here again. If you do stay here the coffee shop on Queen (Amora) has the best breakfast.

  • Shel's place, and Shel, are amazing! First, the apartment:

    It's in a fab location in a beautiful, modern builing, there is also a gym you can use which we did every morning as we were up a silly o'clock with jet lag. We were over from London for work and a bit of fun, and this was the perfect little bolt hole for our stay. Spotlessly clean, really nicely designed, great use of space and lovely to watch the sun set over the city on the balcony at night time. I actually really miss it!

    Secondly, Shel is amazing too. The system she has for letting you in to the apartment is genuis and super simple, no stress. Shel was always available and really wanted to help us have a great stay.

    Shel even let us stay until 5pm on the day we left because we had a late flight, so we didn't have to leave our baggage anywhere.

    Plus, we realised when we got to the airport that my husband had left his camera in the apartment - not a good moment! When I got online Shel had already emailed to say she had it, and that she would drop it off at my husband's work the next day, which she did, panic over!

    I couldn't recommend Shel or the apartment more, I can't wait to go back!!!
