This apartment is a big, open studio with windows in front and back. Queen bed with memory foam mattress, butcher block table with chairs and bench, armchair, rocking chair, and full kitchen including stove, fridge, microwave and toaster. Bathroom is spacious with plenty of space at the vanity, and good water pressure in the shower.
This is a smoke-free property!
Just one block away is College St. with plenty of nightlife, bars, music, and shopping. Little Italy is close enough for your morning coffee, or you can make coffee, tea, cocoa, or a full breakfast right in your own private kitchen. We supply coffee, several teas, hot chocolate, and sugars. A wonderful Portuguese bakery that sells eggs, milk and other essentials is 1.5 blocks away, as is a great breakfast place that opens at 6 AM.
Centrally located, a bus stop is less than a block away (200 metres), or walk one block to the College St. street car (300 metres). The subway is about an 8 minute walk (770 metres=0.46 miles!). And, less than a block away, taxis roll by at all hours. Or, walk to many restaurants, bars, shopping in Little Italy, Little Portugal, Christie Pitts Park, Dufferin Grove Park Organic Farmers Market (every Thursday of the year- bread baking right in the park!) There is a YMCA two blocks away, where you can join for one day for $15. There is a pool, sauna, machines all over the place, an indoor running track, and all the fitness classes are included with membership.
If you have a car, I will tell you how to prearrange to park on the street for the duration of your visit.
Despite being in the heart of the city, this is a very quiet location. If you want to curl up, rest, and sleep soundly, take walks along quiet streets while being close to the action, this is the place.
No big noise, no smoking, no drugs. No using laundry after 11 PM. No guests of guests in apartment between 11 PM and 8 AM. Otherwise, please keep the doors locked, food wrapped and stored in the refrigerator, just basic common sense and consideration.
Please not that this is a smoke-free property, so no smoking on porch, driveway, etc.
This was our second visit in Robin's Studio Apartment. The accommodation is even better than advertised ( bigger). It is private, quiet,clean, warm and has a great central location for our family.
Robin is definitely available if you have any questions but respects your privacy.
Our granddaughter even got to meet Robins very well behaved dog and black cat.
See you next year.
This was my first time using Airbnb. Robin was very warm, patient, and flexible and made me feel very welcome in her suite. Checking in and out was very easy, and Robin chatted with sincerity and ease as she was showing me around the suite. She seems like a very kind and genuine woman, and was always available but didn't otherwise check in with my boyfriend and myself while we were staying there. (Which was great because he knew the area already and we were looking for a bit of privacy).
The suite is great. Really cozy and warm and close to College and Bloor, where you can find lots of food and shops. Ossington Station is also just a few blocks away, which made transiting to the airport really easy.
Overall, I really enjoyed our stay with Robin and would be happy to stay there again.
Overall, I felt welcomed. The apartment was what I expected and was accurately depicted by the photos and the description. The house is in a good neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, bars, and cafes to chose from.
The apartment is larger than the photos make it seem, and it was spotless. Accommodations are really comfortable and very quiet. At the same time, there are lots of restaurants and nightlife a short walk away. It isn't far from public transit, and it's also easy to order a taxi. Robin is an excellent host, and was very kind to me when I embarrassingly got lost on my way from the airport. She has a very sweet dog, and you may see one of her cats, as well. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Highly recommended!
The description and pictures were right on. The place is spacious, bright, clean and located in a quiet area that is close to many restaurants, subway, transit that are easily walked to. Had a full kitchen and utencils if you chose to cook. Robin greeted us upon are arrival saw us before we left. Good value.

I have travelled all over, and have been fortunate to stay at people's homes all around Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, in Krakow, Tel Aviv, London, Paris, Granada, and across North America. These experiences win head and shoulders over any stay in the poshest hotels. I love meeting people who are exploring new places. I am enthusiastic about my neighborhood and look forward to sharing my favorite places and useful tips with you. Our house enjoys a retrieving dog resident but she will not be in your way. Until a month ago, there was a cat here, so if you are highly sensitive to cat hair, there could be a problem. We also enjoy a completely smoke-free property. I like to cook and bake. And eat.
