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.
We had a fantastic time in Monica's apartment. The location (the annex) has everything you need nearby, and with the subway at the end of the road, downtown is only a short trip away.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and extremely well equipped.
The views from the balcony of downtown were fantastic both during the day and at night.
All in all, I would highly recommend.
Monica's apartment was exactly as shown in the photograph:
bright and cheerful. Monica left us several e-mail messages before our arrival so that we knew how to get the key and where to park. We really started to feel that we knew Monica! When we arrived at Monica's apartment we found everything to be compact, clean and comfortable. We used the kitchen just for breakfast, but we could have done more meals there as there was lots of cooking equipment in the cupboards.
The neighbourhood was quiet and felt safe. A great place to stay.

We had a very comfortable three-night stay at Monica's. The apartment is well equipped and quiet. Monica was responsive to one repair we suggested, and she arranged for it to happen without involving us. This is a great place to stay for easy access to Bloor and UofT, and the transit system. Thanks, Monica!
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.
