About this listing
Guest room in a luxury condo with access to all amenities, a view of downtown Toronto and a private entrance.
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 downtown Toronto. 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.

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!
Kathie & Larry were wonderful hosts. Very friendly, room was very comfortable and located directly on the lake with easy access to everything. Apartment comes with private toilet/sink and a shared shower/bath.
Very good place to stay. Larry and Kathy are wonderful hosts and leave you very comfortable. Location is great, restaurants nearby, and the hosts are great
An incredible location, hosted by really wonderful and helpful people! No question why this is booked well ahead so don't wait around if you are thinking of it and want a place right on the water from which you can walk anywhere in downtown Toronto. And thanks - Larry and Kathie - for your warm hospitality!
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.
