The Space

I live on the second and third floor in an amazing 1200 square foot apartment in a semi detached house in Parkdale. Parkdale has one of the most interesting and varied histories of Toronto neighbourhoods. Originally designed as a vacation spot for the wealthy, Parkdale is now a truly mixed neighbourhood, with incredible diversity of race, ethnicity and class. Its restaurants, galleries, cafes and shops make it a destination for the whole city. As a long term resident, I would be happy to introduce you to some of my favourites!
The house is on a residential street that is 5 minutes from the Queen St strip but far enough away that you can avoid it altogether. It is minutes away from the King streetcar and the 24 hour Dufferin bus, which will take you to the subway in 10 minutes. The downtown core can be reached by public transport in 15 minutes. Also minutes from the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore, there is one parking space. The Exhibition grounds, Lake Ontario, Martin Goodman bike trail and Liberty Village are also a 5 minute walk away. You are welcome to borrow one of my bikes during your stay!
I am a huge cook, so the kitchen is well equipped, and I am an avid gardener, so hopefully the deck will be bursting with life and flavour soon (as you can see, nothing much is happening in the pics). There is a bbq for your enjoyment. The entire apartment is very spacious, with many areas to use as workspaces or for relaxing. Linens and towels are provided. There is a friendly cat who lives here (Sabbie, yes she's black), she's a spritely senior who loves people and exploring the rooftops.
There are two bedrooms available to rent each with a twin bed, ideal for two friends travelling together. For couples, the twin beds push together to serve as a king sized bed (with a foam topper for comfort).

Please note:
The price for the apartment rental reflects that guests look after my little cat while I'm away. Sabbie is very affectionate, with lots of energy...definitely not the type to hide in the closet! For this reason, I'm trying to rent to cat lovers only!

The apartment is in an old house, not at all renovated, so it definitely comes with personality...this is why we love it, hopefully you will too!

House Rules

Please respect my space as if it were your own. I am a long term resident with good relationships with my neighbours, and I'd like to keep it that way! If I am away, I really would appreciate a safe and loving environment for my cat Sabbie. In return, you'll have the whole place to yourself!
