Private room in quiet town home

House - Private room · Foundry Avenue, Toronto, ON M6H, Canada

Top unit of a stacked townhouse. Close to subway line (5 min bus or under 15min walk), 15 min subway ride from downtown core and 5 min walk to major St Claire streetcar route... also an easy bus ride to the trendy queen west/ ossington area.
We have two adorable cats and onsite washer/dryer. We are home most evenings, but offer use of a laptop, movies, and free internet from your private room. (likely the nightlife in Toronto will offer more entertainment options for you, but in case you want a quiet night in we want to make sure you are comfortable). There is street parking just outside of our place, but it has a 3hr limit that they have unfortunately just begun to enforce.

We have lived in Toronto for almost ten years, and as such know many great places for you to visit. We have a booklet with many options and sites, aside from tourist traps, if you are looking for some local hot spots.

We require that all doors remain closed and locked to ensure that our cats and home are kept (website hidden) Claire in our area has many restaurants and pubs. There is an LCBO and grocery store within walking distance of our house. Earls Court Park is located just north of our home, and includes a track, baseball diamond, soccer fields, etc. We are not far from Dufferin Mall, or ontario public libraries.

Our home is 3 floors. Both bedrooms are located on the second floor. kitchen is on the main floor, and the entire unit over looks a small public park. The entire unit is a newly constructed home, and we are still settling into the space and hanging pictures, paintings etc. The room for rent is modestly decorated at this time, and has plenty of space for 1-2 guests.

As far as our cats are concerned we ask that you don't pick them up as they don't particularly like to be held, though they are both quite friendly and love to be pet. Please don't feed them human food of any kind, or let them out of the unit. They don't really try to get out, but downtown Toronto is no place for domesticated cats to be wandering around.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the first two floors of the stacked townhouse. There are two bathrooms (shared with us), the kitchen and all the dishes/spices/tea, and the washer/dryer. Feel free to make yourselves at home. The guest room is private and we will not need to enter at any point unless there is an emergency.

Interaction with Guests

We are often not home when our guests arrive, but will arrange with you how to enter the building beforehand.

The Neighborhood

There is an amazing weekend brunch spot called the whippoorwill. Located at Lansdowne and Bloor and open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays (10am).

A nearby pub called Boo Radleys has a nice patio in the summer and pretty good pub food.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ceinwen and Colin are a really nice couple with whom we had a really good time. The place is new and has everything you could need. The bed is comfy and the room cozy. They even help us when we needed to get some of our stuff to a friend in the evening and drove us there!
    We enjoyed our stay and would definetely stay again!

  • Recently I have stayed in Ceinwen's lovely home. She and her husband are great hosts and they were very welcoming, flexible and friendly. I was very happy with my comfortable room and the clean facilities. Just a short walk to major public transportation and interesting local venues. The townhouse is centrally located and was very convenient for me. I would recommend Ceinwen's place and will definitely come back next time I’m in the city.

  • A pleasant place to stay with friendly hosts. We appreciated the peace and quiet you get from being on a quiet street right on a park. Getting downtown is quick and easy if you are ok with the bus and subway.

    November 2013
  • Ceinwen was able to accommodate our delayed late arrival. We enjoyed our stay, although we we're really there much exploring the city. Even though you aren't right downtown it's an easy bus ride or walk to the subway that takes you right downtown.
    The kitties are quite nice and so are there owners, Ceinwen and Colin.

    Thanks guys!

  • Was a really nice stay! Really nice people! 5 star for friendliness and if you don't mind catching the subway then a good spot to stay.

  • What a wonderful experience in a beautiful part of Toronto! If you're looking for gracious hosts who will respect your privacy while simultaneously ensuring you a comfortable and stable environment for lodging, then this is the place for you. There are numerous public transit lines nearby, and there are two wonderful cats to keep you company if you get bored. I would gladly stay here again and will recommend it to anyone who asks.

  • Ceinwen's apartment was great! She was there when we arrived, welcomed us to our private room and introduced us to the two friendly cats.

    The location is great, near Little Portugal, which has two HOPPIN spots on it for great bars, food, snacks and great nightlife.

    It was great to have a parking garage only a 2 minute walk from the apartment, and our bikes were secure the whole time (though we did lock them, the location is very calm and safe.)

    Great meeting you Ceinwen!
    Mike and Rebecca

  • Unfortunately we didnt really see Ceinwen a lot since we only stayed for two nights and always came home late.
    We enjoyed our time in Toronto and public transport was close.
    Communications went very well with them.
