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 not 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 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 :)
This is the second time that I was hosted by Liora & Kohen. It was a wonderful and seamless experience. We communicated by email to confirm my arrival. Kohen met me upon my arrival to give me a key. They both made me feel very comfortable and welcomed in their home. I love the separate entrance to the room so that I don't feel like I'm encroaching on anyone when I am coming/going. Nice room, lovely environment. I'll stay here again.
J'ai passé un super séjour. Le quartier est vraiment génial, surtout avec kensington market juste à coté et les autres quartiers très proches en streetcar ou à pied.
Picture of unit is exactly as you will get it. The hosts Liora, Kohen and Norman the dog were GREAT!... Super clean place is what makes this place #1 place in all the airbnb places I've stayed at. Room Super Clean, Bathroom Super Clean (Such nice toilet paper.. so thick!! haha... really!! )
I stayed over Xmas and even got a nice gift from them. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They also made me a egg mcmuffin on my last day there. .. Delicious...
I would not hesitate to stay here again (and I will) in the future.
You guys rock! Thanks again for the great hospitality.
Liora and Kohen (and Norman) are wonderful hosts! They were very welcoming in person and in our initial email exchange. The room is charming, clean, cozy, and stylish. Easy access to room with separate entrance. Perfect location for downtown. I'll stay here again!
super experience chez Liora. La chambre est grande et tu as vraiment ton espace privé. Liora est tres aceuillante et dispo et surtout donne de tres bonnes adresses pour decouvrir la ville. l'experience a Toronto n'aurait tres certaienment pas été la meme sans elle!
I spent the wknd days at Liora and Kohen's apartment. Both was super helpful, responsive to any issues and so warm and welcoming. The room was lovely ,clean and comfortable and came with everything needed, the location is amazing. I wished I could have stayed longer. I sincerely recommend Their place! Many thanks for your kind hospitality :)
Liora was a great Airbnb host. She made sure the room was comfortable (Toronto was colder than Ohio) and had a ton of great recommendations for places to eat and drink in the city. Thanks Liora!
