This chic lower-level one bedroom apartment sits on a gorgeous street in a fabulous location in the heart of downtown Toronto. Steps from Little Italy, the College streetcar, U of T, the Ossington strip and Dundas West! Step in live like a local!
Nestled downtown on a great tree-lined residential street, this is a charming and bright one-bedroom lower-level (basement) apartment, in the fantastic, centrally-located Little Italy neighborhood. Little Italy is family-friendly and a great base for exploring the city.
The apartment is located just one block North of of College Street and features a separate living room, a kitchenette (stove/oven/micro, fridge), and a full bathroom (with tub). This location puts you in the centre of everything Little Italy and Ossington Village have to offer. The location is also very close to the “Annex” and Korea Town: a lively strip of Bloor Street with many shops and restaurants. You will be a short 15-min walk to the University of Toronto and just blocks away from some of the best coffee shops in the city: Sam James Coffee Bar and Lit Espresso.
The living room is covered in a beautiful wool wall to wall carpet and has a double futon couch (sleeper) and flat screen t.v. with basic cable channels. The kitchen is complete with a four burner stove and oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, and fridge. We start you off with coffee, tea, milk, and a few cooking basics such as olive oil.
The bedroom has hardwood parquet flooring and a walk-in closet, with a comfortable double bed. The bathroom has been recently renovated and includes a bathtub for those days when you just need a bath!

Cute place to stay in a great part of town. Joe and Vinita were amazing.
Vinita and Joe were wonderful hosts - friendly, accommodating, and communicative.
The apartment was excellent - well furnished, clean, and in a great location!
Would happily stay there again!
My girlfriend and I had a nice time in the apartment of Vinita and Joe who are very welcoming.
The neighbourhood is great right in little Italy and close to downtown and the public transport.
A friend and I stayed with Vinita and Joe over the holidays and had an lovely experience. The apartment was very clean, cozy and fully equipped. They provided everything we needed to feel comfortable and communicated well with us.
The location is excellent and we found it very easy to get around.
I would highly recommend staying with this lovely couple.
very good time
Joe and Vinita could not have been more welcoming! They were so friendly and accommodating. They have a lovely basement suite located in Little Italy. They supplied us with everything we needed and more including towels, clean linens, shampoo, body wash, milk, tea, fruit, cereal and cooking supplies. They also gave us tips about restaurants and excursions in Toronto. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend them as hosts.
