Hip downtown weekend room with art

House - Private room · Euclid Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2J8, Canada

The Space

The house is located on Euclid Avenue - the downtown edge of the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood - a lushly treed area that is a brief walk from the centre of the city. No need to have a car here.

The house is one of the older homes on the street - originally a store in the middle of a residential block. Built on the orchard lands of the old Gorevale estate, it is now situated right in the middle of the most popular and hip neighbourhoods of Toronto: West Queen Street West, Little Italy, Ossington, Kensington Market, Chinatown and Dundas to name a few.

The room is on the first floor where my son and I live. At the front of the house it is filled with art. It is hard to imagine that my son lives there during the week. (The computer gives it away.) A Japanese divider wall separates it from the rest of the house.

There is a guest spa washroom upstairs. There is also a guest living room, dining area, kitchen, and deck on the second floor. The kitchen is full equipped. There is a fridge for guest use.

Public transit is only steps away, but you will be able to walk to most places. It would take you months to try all the restaurants which are a short walk away. There is internet access. Air conditioning when needed. We tend to be fairly quiet.

  • I had a great time staying with Caroline. She was very helpful and accommodating. I felt like I was living in my own space and fell in love with the bathroom and kitchen. I spent a lot of my time on the rooftop patio which was very beautiful, quaint and relaxing. The location is also supreme just a stones throw from the grocery store, pharmacy and millions of shops and restaurants. There is also a view of the CN tower from her place. I would come back and stay there any day !

  • Caroline was a great host and the house is the best, in terms of distance to hot spots in Toronto and the service it offers. Neat room, open air, very spacious, clean bathroom and super friendly and helpful host. I can't ask for a better experience. I really recommend you to stay with Caroline when you are in Toronto. Caroline will take time to get to know you and show you around to help your stay in Toronto more pleasant.

  • Caroline was very nice and the house is in a great area of the city, full of cool cafes and great bookstores. Excellent place to stay in Toronto!

  • Caroline was an awesome host, and her house is great as well. I cannot think of anything to write here that would be a negative to staying with her. I had a pretty busy schedule while in TO with many interviews and meetings and staying at Caroline's place was so smooth and easy I didn't have to worry about anything at all. This was the perfect location to get anywhere in town, right between the best areas to explore such as Queen St W, Little Italy and Koreatown, Downtown, and easy to get to using transit (even if taking transit from the airport - takes about 20 min bus plus a 20 min subway = 40min total). Caroline really took the time to give me pointers on places to eat and visit (she has a huge old map of TO in the entranceway to direct you as you are getting your shoes on). The loft room was sick, in the best possible meaning of that word.

  • What can I say, Caroline was a wonderful host. Talkative, knowledgeable about the city and her neighbourhood and always ready to share some interesting story for good conversation. She contacted me by phone before my stay to make sure everything was coordinated and that I was comfortable with the arrangement - she really went out of her way to ensure I would be comfortable. She made me feel right at home in her home. The rooms were like they appear in the photos; clean and spacious, and were spread out throughout the large 3 story house for good privacy. The bathroom was very clean and very nicely updated; modern shower (spa-like for sure). The outdoor patio was beautiful - you don't often get space like that in Toronto and the kitchen had all basic necessities.
    The neighbourhood is uber central and in one of the hypest residential quarters of the city. Trees and parks are nearby, but so are some of the newest restaurant hotspots in Toronto. If you plan on staying here, think of it as 'going to stay with an eccentric (in a very good way) aunt'. Definitely recommended.

  • This place is so good! Caroline is so nice and helpful! The rooms and the house is very fresh and nice.

About
My teenage son and I live in downtown Toronto in a state of frugal luxury. I walk almost everywhere. He draws, works on the computer, wonders about ethics, and makes dry, wry comments when the mood hits him. He, and others, think that I am eccentric. To pin it down more distinctly, he describes it as me being very European. Luckily, he yearns to live in Europe. I am an autodidact, read a fair amount, and think copiously. My sense of humour seems to be in the ear of the beholder. Some people think that I am outrageously funny and start laughing before I even open my mouth. Others believe that I am the most serious person they meet. Frequently this split of opinion can happen within the same room. Of course, we are kind... and helpful... and sincere... and everything else a heart and someone looking for a place to stay could desire. We are not partiers. Nor do we smoke or drink excessively.
