Scarborough is a beautiful suburb of Toronto, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We love the many parks, bike trails, zoo just around the corner, as well as shops, cinema and banks within walking distance for all your day-to-day needs. The Scarborough Bluffs are a beautiful natural attraction and the trail there is one of our personal favourites for adventure walks with the kids.
Being one minute from Highway 401 makes access to anywhere in Toronto a breeze and a trip to the airport is just a straight shot along the highway.
Enjoy all the nature, cultural and artistic experiences that Toronto has to offer from our newly renovated townhome.
Transit at our doorstep (132 TTC bus) connects you directly to subway and downtown, or to zoo or GO Train (85 bus).
Free parking and easy access from 401 make this a convenient option for drivers as well. 20 minutes to downtown, 30 minutes to airport.
Parks and lakeshore easily accessible via bus or car.
Other Things to Note
Priority given to long stays during Pan Am Games during month of July 2015, as we are a 2-minute drive from TPASC Sports and Aquatic facility. Bookings under a week not accepted for July at this point.
Please note that we do not accept same-day or last-minute bookings. A firm booking 48 hours or more before check-in would be greatly appreciated so we can prepare the house suitably for your stay.
Treat the house the way you would like guests to treat your own home. And above all, enjoy your stay and make yourself at home!
The townhouse wax everything we expected and more. Perfect for our family, with a bassinet for a little one and a crib for our 2 year old.
Had everything we needed for our weekend stay and is in a fantastic location for us as we were headed to the zoo which is a short drive away.
Was perfect! Thank you very much for allowing us to stay!
We have a very great time. Nicholas and Barbara are very helpful and willing to take care of things we need. The house is nice as well. We enjoy our stay.
We received a presidential treatment from Barbara and Nicholas when we arrived at the property. They were very friendly and trusting, thus made it very easy for me and my family to immediately feel at home. The apartment was thoroughly cleaned up and we were given 2 weeks worth of clean towels and toiletries to make our stay even more comfortable. Light refreshments along side some food stuff was also left in the fridge and cupboards for us, which was a really hospitable gesture from them.
Nicholas was also very supportive and practical in his approach towards any problems and challenges. Occasionally the internet acted up, but in a moment's notice Nicholas was always at hand to offer a solution. In one instance he even had to request an upgrade of the internet data plan from his ISP just to suit my heavy internet usage.
Nicholas was always at hand to provide us with very cost effective directions on how to go round the tourist attractions in Scarborough and the surrounding area. My family and I were really blessed to be hosted by this couple and we will definitely hope to stay with them again later this year when we return to Toronto.
The house was nicely cleaned. Had everything ready for our first night. Barbara was very accommodating with a later check in than expected. Lots of local info for activities to do in the area. Great that there's a shopping area just down the street with a movie theatre.
We had a little problem with the internet, but it turns out it was the supplier's outage, But Barbara was patience and helped me to try to remedy making sure it wasn't user error.
Definitely will be back again, if I'm going to Toronto!
We had a great stay! The house was very comfy and cozy. The owners were very accommodating and provided lots of local tips and info. The home is located very close to banks/shops etc and was right beside the 401 making it extremely convenient! Would recommend this place to anyone!
