The Space

My husband and I are both artists. I give painting and felting workshops and Larry is a filmmaker. We live in a split-level waterfront condo in downtown Toronto, with a guest room on the 2nd level facing the CN tower. The room has a private entrance, an en-suite two piece bathroom, wireless internet, cable TV with DVD player, microwave and a small refrigerator. The tub/shower is located in the main bathroom just outside the guest room door. Guests' amenities include: a roof top salt water pool, sauna, exercise room, recreation room, library, racquetball courts and free guest parking. Our building is next door to the ferry docks and attached by a walkway to the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel where guests can enjoy fine dining or a cup of Starbuck's coffee in the morning. We are located across the bay from Centre island on the south, while a short walk to the north will take you to the financial district, the CN Tower, the Air Canada Centre (concert and sports) Metro Convention Centre, theaters, and many fine restaurants. Our condo is a perfect home base for experiencing the best Toronto has to offer. Public transportation, ferries to Centre island, air port express bus and bus pick up for Niagara Falls are at our door step.

I would like to know a little about the people who are going to stay in my home, so please fill in your profile.

There are also several parks and gardens, especially as you head west. My favorite one is the Music Garden, which is a landscape representation of Bach's "Suite No 1 for Unaccompanied Cello." Free concerts are held there on Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. (weather permitting).

There is so much to see and do: Art Galleries, Boat Cruises, City Tours, Visit to Historical Sites, Museums, Theatre and Stage Plays, Theme Parks & Entertainment Complex.

Check In
  • Kathie and Larry are wonderful hosts and the location couldn't be beat! We roamed all over Toronto and didn't have to move the car once. The room is so comfortable with a nice view and there is a coffee maker and little fridge which was very convenient. We enjoyed discussing a wide variety of topics with them and were grateful for their suggestions on places to go. If you are planning a trip to Toronto you would be lucky to stay here!

  • We had a very nice stay in Kathie and Larry's place in Toronto. A comfortable bedroom with private toilet and within easy walking distance of everything we wanted to do downtown. We would be happy to visit again.

  • Our stay with Kathie & Larry was exceptional. The room was clean, quiet, very private and secure and had it's own toilet facilities. The view was quite amazing too. Access to the room and all the little details were well looked after. The location was perfect for us too. Within walking distance or much of down town. We had a great visit. I would definitely call them for our next visit to Toronto and you should too.

  • It was important for us to find an apartment close to where my son lives and Kathie and Larry's place fitted the bill. The room had everything in it that we could possibly need. Very comfortable bed. We didn't have time to use the facilities on offer which included a workout room and pool. The apartment is on the waterfront which is being developed at the moment, and is already a beautiful place to wander around.

    June 2013
  • Kathie and Larry's place offers a private and comfortable room with luxurious towels and sheets in a convenient location (near Union Station, CN Tower, etc.) and with free parking! They were lovely and kind hosts and we are already thinking about visiting again.
