Jeff/Harold was an excellent host. Communicated before, during & after was excellent. Home exceeded our expectations. Option to add parking was great since we had a rental car & the neighborhood is extremely popular with lots of shops, bars & restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend staying here.

What a great place in downtown Toronto! Excellent location, close to all restaurants, shopping, fun, Metro, etc. House has character and feels quite homey. It's clean, comfortable and fully stocked with all essentials. Harold took care of us completely, was punctual, responsive, helpful and kind. I couldn't recommend this spot more. He even made us muffins!

This listing is even better in person. This house, located near King and Bathurst had a great location close to food and entertainment. The house was extremely clean and smelt amazing. Harold has a well equipped kitchen and bathroom with plenty of amenities. The entire place was extremely comfortable and had everything that we needed for our three night stay. Although my boyfriend and I did not get to meet Harold, he was extremely helpful answering my questions on Air B and B mail, and his brother Jeff was very welcoming and provided us with an excellent tour of the house. I would highly recommend this place.

The home was as lovely as it is in the pictures, and had ample space for three professional women to stay. Harold and Jeff helped us out in a bind when our previous airbnb host cancelled last minute, for which we were very grateful! I cooked many of my meals in the kitchen downstairs, which helped me cut down on costs. It is worthwhile to communicate with the people upstairs, since some of the lights connect between floors... but otherwise we had a great stay, and were able to get back and forth from the convention center in Toronto with ease. Thanks!

I stayed at Harold's apartment for 2 weeks on business and it went extremely well! I loved the cozy feel of the home and the access to a full kitchen.

We LOVED this place. Perfect location for getting around metro area by foot or car. Also close to freeway. The house has a wonderful vibe. Great decor and you can see that Harold has an appreciation for world culture and travel and cooking! We didn't get to cook unfortunately, but Harold has a very well-stocked kitchen that I would have loved to put to work. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the living area is very condusive to just hanging out with some wine or coffee and friends! Harold and his brother Jeff were very easy to make arrangements with. Very accommodating. And helped us with directions and places of interest. GREAT GREAT STAY!

I love to travel. I've been to over 40 countries. I love a well stocked kitchen to cook in. I have three adult children and two grandsons that I adore. Sitting, staring into an Ocean and Sea is probably my favorite thing to do. Preparing meals for family and friends and newly met people makes me very happy. Walking and cycling around different cities, villages and towns I've found is a great way to explore. I love Amarone!
