The older residential Annex is a wonderful place to make yourself comfortable. Beautiful historic homes and tree-lined streets. The University of Toronto is at a stone's throw distance, giving the area a youthful atmosphere with many young people around.
The apartment is well-appointed without any clutter. High-thread-count sheets, hotel-grade pillows and a great king-sized bed. There is a fully equipped kitchen with new dishes, empty closets, lots of space. It's a no smoking apartment with a balcony with great views where you can smoke.

Interaction with Guests

The Annex is a vibrant and livable neighbourhood! You’ll enjoy the hustle and bustle of a downtown energy but the tranquility and quiet of a vacation getaway.
The main subway stations of St. George and Dupont, are less than 5 minutes walking distance from the building. There is also easy walking access from Spadina and Bloor St. Stations. Inexpensive overnight parking is also available close by.
Other Things to Note
Short-term meter parking is available on St. George Street and the other surrounding streets. Overnight parking half a block from the apartment ($12 for 24 hours). A 24-hour supermarket is located one block away.
The main thing is that you feel as comfortable and welcome as possible.
Monica is an excellent host, she replied promptly and did her best to satisfy our requests.
The house is cozy and elegant, perfect for two persons.
The kitchen is really well equipped :) although a real table is missing (you can eat on the kitchen counter).
Location is pretty central and 10 minutes walk from the Subway.
Monica's apartment was an ideal base for my trip to an academic conference in Toronto. Monica and Kevin are great at communicating and were really prompt in answering any questions I had or helping with any modifications to the booking. They really accommodated my needs and schedule. The flat is the perfect size for a single traveler or couple, and immaculately clean. The kitchen is well organised, the internet connection is reliable and fast, the shower is hot, the heating system is easy to use, the bed and sofa are comfy and the building feels safe and well cared for. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe but really close to Bloor Street and the University, and there are places to purchase groceries and take-away food really close-by. Overall staying in the Annex was great!
It is really very convenient to the university, clean, professionally appointed, with a beautiful view. Ideal for one person. I recommended it to my friends. The only slight negative is that there is no desk.
Monica gave us lots of information about her apartment and replied promptly to our questions and concerns by email, our preferred communication method. We didn't actually meet her, but her friend in the neighborhood, Kevin, met us as planned and showed us into her apartment and explained how everything worked and gave local advice about which direction to walk to find a grocery store, park our car, and take a subway. The apartment was exactly what we were expecting from its description and everything there was in good shape. We enjoyed our stay there and having a welcoming convenient "home from home." The views of the city were spectacular both by day and night with the lit up skyscrapers, clouds, and moonlight. Thanks Monica and Kevin.
Monica seu apartamento é muito acolhedor, bem preparado para receber hospedes. O sistema de calefação foi perfeito para nós, brasileiros que saímos do Rio de Janeiro com sensações térmicas na casa dos 40º e chegamos em Toronto com sensações em torno de -25º.
Sua receptividade dispensa comentários. Sempre extremamente atenciosa e veloz nas respostas e pronta para nos ajudar.
Ficamos encantados com o Canadá, com Toronto e quero agradecer muito a sua atenção acolhedora nos fazendo sentir em casa.
The apartment was more than we could think and had everything that we need.
It was a pleasure stay there.
Monica receptivity could not be more special, always helpful and ready to help us with everything.
Toronto is a show by itself and we feel like home.
Perfectly as described. Monica is very responsive and most helpful. I will happily choose this one again when available.
Monica was very prompt with responses, and she provided such detailed information on getting from the airport to the apartment. The apartment was in a great neighborhood. I was within easy walking distance to the gym (a priority for me), close to the subway station which I used every day to access the places I planned to go. I was also easy walking distance to the Whole Food Market which is fabulous for grocery shopping. The building was very quiet, very clean. The apartment is as it is described by the host, penthouse balcony views, kitchen provides the necessary items for cooking, it is very clean. There is a binder with subway lines, nearby conveniences, restaurants etc listed. I have never been in Toronto before and I felt I had chosen a great downtown location especially with the subway station so close. I would definitely stay here again.
Monica is an an avid traveler and understands what is important in an upscale home-away-from-home. Having extensive experience in customer service, she knows the importance of good communication and flexibility according to guests’ individual needs and schedules. If you are looking for a host that responds quickly and professionally, a great, bright, super clean space, and a fantastic, downtown Toronto location that is safe and quiet, this is the place!
