I'm pretty easy going but there are some basic rules:
You're free to use any of the kitchen equipment as long it's treated as you would your own and cleaned and returned to it's original place.
-There is Absolutely no smoking of any kind inside the apartment at anytime.
-Unfortunately no pets are allowed, I work from home and I have clients with allergies
-The gym is there for use but any risk is assumed by the user, please don't attempt anything you're not sure of or not capable of.
-No guests that are not part of the agreement are allowed unfortunately either. Even the apartment is central to the entertainment area it is not available for after parties or gatherings. Renters only thanks.
The TV and internet is all there for use and guest profiles will be provided for each.
The Wii is also there for use and instructions will be provided on how to access all of the content. The instruments around the house are also available to for use but please no playing after 11pm.
Music can be played throughout the house using the computer system(instructions will be provided on how to use it) but please again, out of respect for the neighbors) no loud music after 11pm.
Please no liquids aside from water in the gym area, the sports turf is hard to steam clean and wine and pop etc are killer hard to get out. A cleaning deposit will be required but returned upon inspection if there are no issues.
Outside of that, just try to keep as you would your own (hopefully very tidy and in good order) household and we'll all be super happy with your stay.
We were a group of three people spending a weekend downtown and chose to stay at Wils place. The location is amazing and there's a lot to do and see in the area. The place itself was really cool and clean and we had absolutely no issues during our stay there. Wil was helpful and nice and let us know that if we ever needed anything he was a phone call away. He was also flexible and gave us a really late checkout which worked out amazing for us. Overall it was a great time and we will definitely consider coming back the next time we need a place downtown!
We had a fantastic stay at Wil's apartment - great location, great views, incredible restaurant downstairs too! Wil was extremely acoommodating - we noticed a slow release hole in the air bed at 9pm, called him, and then went out for dinner. When we got home he had already delivered and inflated the new bed. It's a bustling part of town and can be pretty noisy late into the night, but Wil warned us of this when we booked so we were well prepared with ear plugs etc, so we all slept very well. Wil even made sure we had free parking for both our cars which was a huge bonus.
Fantastic stay when you want to experience what Queen West has to offer. The restaurant downstairs is a gem, a must! The float centre across the street was the most relaxing experience in my life. If you want to get your creative juices flowing you must stay here. Will was an amazing host, a true airbnb super host. We would love to come back!

Awesome guy, space, location! Looking forward to staying here again.
About the Host, Wil
I'm a Thai Massage Therapist and Personal trainer living in Toronto.
I like to think I'm easy to get along with and totally an open book. Ask me anything and I'll go on and on and on.....sometimes too much but always completely honest. Outside of that, I love movies (especially cheesey action movies with terrible one liners, so pretty much anything with Bruce Willis), comic books and music music music.
I'm an easy traveler, I can sleep on anything anywhere and I'm neat and tidy and I'll leave your place as clean as I found it. I'll eat anything from anywhere as well, so finding a spot in the area I'm staying has never been a problem.
My life motto? Aut viam inveniam aut faciam = I will either find a way or make one.
I've just listed my own place as well so if you're ever in Toronto and need a place to stay, look mine up. I'm hoping I get to host some great people oand make some new global connections as traveling and the stories that come from it is truly one of the great pleasures in life.
