The Space

Our newly renovated home has been featured in design magazines and is in the newest 'hip' area of Toronto, Dundas St West. Recently featured in the New York Times travel section, Dundas West offers you galleries, cafés and great restaurants. You can find these just outside our door, as well as the streetcar, which takes you to the museums and downtown in 10 minutes. We are also close to the TIFF Bell Lightbox if you are a film festival buff and it is a terrific walking neighbourhood with shops and lovely parks nearby.

The house has hardwood floors throughout and a beautiful shaded backyard with a large deck and dining area. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a sitting area, and a large bathroom with a tub and separate shower with a steam. You can enjoy our green roof right off the master bedroom. There is another bedroom as well as a second bathroom for additional guests.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Elle's place is amazing!! Exquisitely designed, sleek, warm, and inviting. It was an absolute honor to spend some time there. And, Elle's team made our stay flawless. Also, the neighborhood is richly layered and very interesting. Can't imagine a better stay in Toronto.

  • Elle's place was unbelievable! It was the perfect spot to meet our friends for a weekend in Toronto, and the neighborhood was a delight to explore. Everyone in the shops and restaurants seemed to know Elle, and its location right on Dundas Street made getting around the city really easy. It was also perfect for relaxing, listening to music and reading after a long day biking around. Elle was also very understanding when we misinterpreted the checkout time - she communicated quickly and was flexible with our situation. Please stay here if you can!!!

  • Elle and Tamira's home was perfection. It was the ideal spot for relaxing and entertaining friends, who were all very impressed by our art gallery-like pretend home. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

  • The apartment is really magnificent. Being in the high end interior design industry I appreciate the attention to detail and well thought out design. Everything in the home was obviously very special to Elle and Tamira so it was an honor to be able to stay as a guest. It is the only place I will ever stay in Toronto. The neighborhood is really fantastic! Everything about the experience was very hip and artistic.

  • I stayed at Elle's beautiful home for a week while travelling in Toronto. The photos do not do it justice! Once there, I was pleasantly surprised - it's far more lovely in person. It is spotlessly clean, inviting and voluminous in size. You will be surrounded by gorgeous subversive art, an incredible collection of beautiful books and music, a fantastic kitchen to cook in, with all the needed utensils and more. The furnishings are very comfortable, and she has a great eye for design. The steam shower and bathtub were great. The powder room bath is useful for guests, and has great decor touches, as does everything else in the home. The heated floor in the living room was great for cold winter mornings, and the very large yard was great for my dog. The large space and large dining table was wonderful to host a dinner with family and friends. The tempurpedic bed was very comfortable and had both firm and soft pillows for picky sleepers like me. Elle's assistant Lili was kind and accommodating to all my needs and questions. I have rented apartments all over Canada, the US and Europe - and this is one the better ones. Treat yourself well, and stay at Elle's. You won't regret it.

  • Tout est magnifique! De la porte d'entrer à la tapisserie de la salle de bain! Il y fait bon vivre! On découvre le cœur du quartier portugais: boulangerie et restaurant à proximité. Merci de partager votre amour du design, de l'art et du bon goût.
    à la prochaine.

Hi, my partner and I recently finished renovating our place and offer it occasionally to those interested in design, architecture, art and an oasis in Toronto. I'm a filmmaker and artist and my partner is an architect. The place was an old sheet metal shop and we transformed it (email hidden)/work space in downtown toronto. We've been profiled in Dwell Magazine as well as Design Lines and the Stephen and Chris show on CBC. We love to travel and hence share our place with others when we're not here.
