About this listing
Our century old home has a lovely guest room with a private entrance no more than a 15 minute walk to the city centre, and right on major transit routes. 5 minute walk from the University of Toronto, Chinatown, Kensington Market, & Little Italy.
A newly renovated and freshly painted home on a quiet residential street in the heart of downtown Toronto!
ABOUT THE ROOM
Private room with your own private entrance in a big bright shared 2 bedroom apartment. The room is very large with hardwood floors and a full sized bed. Linens, towels, hair dryer, iron & wireless internet available. Shared access to kitchen, bathroom, common space.
We're close to EVERYTHING: streetcar, subway, restaurants, open air markets, awesome vintage shops, bars and brunch spots.
We have a walk score of 98% and a transit score of 100%.
We are in walking distance of Kensington Market (5 minute walk), Little Italy (3 minute walk), the University of Toronto (5 minute walk), and the Annex (5 minute walk) and are a 5-15 minute streetcar ride from the very trendy Ossington strip, Queen West, Little Korea, Trinity Bellwoods Park, and High Park. Bathurst subway is a 10 minute walk, and both the Bathurst and College streetcars are a 3 minute walk.
WHO WE ARE
We are a professional couple who love hosting and meeting new people, while at the same time we understand privacy. We have a small and charming hypoallergenic dog who is quiet and is not allowed in the guest space. We are super passionate about food (I work as a food writer) and film and are eager to provide restaurant and entertainment recommendations - so please do not hesitate to ask!
There is street parking on our street, available by permit through the city of Toronto website -- you can book it online (you need to print it out and place it on your dashboard) as early as a week in advance for about $10 a day (which is an excellent deal).
Alternatively, there is a private parking lot less than a 5 minute walk from our house. They charge varying rates depending on whether you are parking all day, overnight, etc. They are located on the South West corner of College and Bathurst.
IMPORTANT HOUSE RULES
Must be queer friendly. All guests are expected to be respectful towards all people and things inside the apartment.
Please note that smoking is allowed, but only outside on the patio. There is a small covered deck as part of the private entrance to the room.
We try to keep our house super clean! We keep our price low by not charging extra cleaning fees so we do expect our guests to clean up after themselves. We simply ask that you treat the room and our apartment as if it is your own. This includes turning the lights off when you are not in the room.
Our bathroom is shared and is a bit small so we try to keep personal care products to a minimum by storing them in our room, we encourage our guests to do the same. There are plenty of hooks and clothes hangers in the room for towels, etc.
There is a small deck at the private entrance to the room. This is a great space to have a cigarette, read a book, or enjoy a cocktail. You are welcome to enjoy this space, although we do ask when you are entering/exiting or aren't around, that you keep your door shut and the deck door shut so not to encourage squirrels and raccoons to take up residence :)
Le logement était superbe. La rue est tranquille et il a été facile de se stationner pour le weekend. Liora nous a super bien accueilli et a été très gentille avec nous! L'appartement est très propre et grand.
Liora and Kohen's were kind enough to host me again. I've stayed here multiple times, and will stay here again in the future. Liora and Kohen have cultivated a gracious, accommodating, and friendly environment. Accommodations are super clean. Excellent neighborhood location. Highly recommend.
Liora and Kohen are truly amazing hosts. Their home is lovely and spacious, in a really great part of Toronto. Liora was really helpful throughout my stay, particularly with great food recommendations. Norman the puppy is gorgeous too!
Great neighborhood, beautiful & clean apartment, and very nice folks. Thanks Liora and Kohen! I would definitely come back!
Great hosts and great location! They have given us some fantastic tips of restaurants and places to visit in Toronto.
My wife and I had a great stay with Liora & Cohen! They were very accommodating, and helpful with suggestions on restaurants, and different areas to check out. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and we had plenty of room to ourselves. With a bed, couch, and den area, we had no complaints. We would definitely stay here again, and we'd recommend this place to anyone visiting Toronto.
