Interaction with Guests
I am often out of town, but am always available by phone and text.
Right in the center of downtown Toronto, steps from tons of restaurants, bars, parks, shops, theaters, museums, galleries, cafes and multiple streetcar and subway lines.
The apartment is located two blocks from the St. Lawrence Market, named the world's top food market by National Geographic. Stop in for cheese from France, lobster from Nova Scotia, mole from Mexico, and everything in between. Every weekend the market hosts a farmer's market and a fantastic (and inexpensive) antique market.
Within easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bars, parks, theaters, galleries, the Design and Distillery districts, as well as Toronto's the waterfront, Yonge/Dundas Square, Eaton Centre, and the Financial District.
Located near the intersections of Yonge, King, and Queen streets, you can hop on a street cars, bus or the subway to get anywhere in the city.
Parking is available in the building for $20/day.
Transportation from both Toronto airports to Union Station (a 10-minute walk from the apartment) is very easy: from Pearson, you can take the Toronto Airport Express shuttle, or take the free shuttle from Billy Bishop (for Porter Airlines).

This is an excellent place to stay in Toronto, the apartment is lovely, really comfortable and super cool. Len wasn't in town when we we were there, but she made great arrangements to make sure that we settled in easily. The apartment block is in a really nice corner of Toronto, just a few mins walk from downtown & there are lots of very nice bars, shops and restaurants right on the doorstep. I would definitely stay here again!
I can't recommend Len's apartment more highly. It's a fantastic neighbourhood: right in the heart of Toronto but not too noisy, with a lovely park across the street and great coffee on your doorstep. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated in a retro theme, with a fantastic bookshelf. Len was a great host, very responsive and thoughtful in terms of accommodating our needs (including leaving out a couple of helpful items for our baby). We had a great stay and would love to come back!
Len was the epitome of the perfect host during our stay in Toronto. Although she could not be there, she did everything she could to make it seem like she was. The fridge was well stocked with breakfast food and the bathroom had complimentary toiletries.
Len's place is quite marvellous and in a very convenient location. The gym is well equipped and the furniture in the flat is like walking on to a scene from Mad Men.
Len continued to communicate with us even to the point of checking if we had been affected during the recent ice storms in Toronto.
Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
Our communication with our host Len was easy and quick. From our arrival we felt welcome and at home , and Len was thoughtful to leave gluten free products for us in the fridge for our breakfasts. It is a lovely apartment, spotlessly clean, airy, sunny and with spectacular views. It is very convenient to a range of shopping possibilities, is quiet and St James Park is great. We are looking forward to staying in Len's apartment again when we next visit Toronto.
The apartment was spotless. The view and location were incredible. Len was extremely responsive and provided good instructions. Thanks for a great visit. We would love to stay again if back in Toronto.
Len's apartment was just what we were hoping for our downtown Toronto vacation. We stayed 5 days during summer 2013 Pride festivities, and found it conveniently located and a perfect space for the two of us. We appreciated how stylishly decorated the space was with mid-century modernist furniture. The more you looked the more you saw! She also had a diverse collection of (website hidden). James Park is just across the street and St. Lawrence Market is very convenient. We enjoyed the city views as well. We'd be privileged to stay again and would recommend to others. The only shortcoming (nitpicking here) was a small coffee maker, but that was easily managed with multiple brews. Finally, it offers convenient transportation via shuttle to and from airport. Thanks to Len for sharing!
Where do I start? Right form the word go, Len was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was approachable, friendly and responded quickly to all my questions about the apartment and our upcoming stay. The apartment itself was wonderful....clean, with plenty of light. Decked out retro chic with a modern twist, the solarium and the view of the city skyline were sublime...the location couldn't have been better. I have no hesitation in recommending this boutique design oasis to anyone contemplating a stay in downtown Toronto. I'll definitely be back.
