Justin is a great host!
I really enjoyed my stay at Justin's downtown Miami apartment.
LOCATION - Ideal. Right downtown, walking distance to Macy's, businesses, public transportation, a shopping center, and a few restaurants.
PRICE - Good value for money as there were two separate private bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathrooms. The main bedroom had a nice large king bed, while the smaller bedroom had a small double bed. A fourth/fifth person could be accommodated on the pull out couch but we did not need use of it, so cant comment on its size nor comfort.
CLEANLINESS - The inside of the apartment was immaculate. No personal items hanging around, so it was a great hotel-like rental. However, the balcony was quite dirty (and unfurnished), possibly because it overlooks the rail/tram/train. Otherwise it would have been a nice hang out spot.
AMENITIES - Towels linens blankets iron plates glasses brita were provided. Soap, lotion etc was not so you will need to walk with that. Wifi and cable worked perfectly. Was so busy enjoying the city that I did not even have time to go see the pool! The only thing missing was parking for my rental car, but there was free street parking one block away during the night
CHECK IN/OUT PROCESS - There was an arranged collection for the keys, so I never met Justin in person. However, it was ready to be collected quite easily as described. There is only one key to the building and apartment, it's a bit tricky to coordinate if the entire group does not want to move together at all times (which is very likely considering a large group of 6 people may possibly be staying here).
Stayed Columbus Day Weekend 2013
This place was awesome! The rooftop bar has to be the BEST lounge/view in Toronto. This place is in the middle of great restaurants and nightlife entertainment. Everything was easy and the condo was very modern and comfortable.. GREAT PLACE!
Perfect location and perfect apartment! Justin is a great host and was very helpful with organising all the finer details. We had such a fantastic stay with all the restaurants and coffee spots around, there is so much to do! Thanks again Justin!
First thing, this apartment is NOT a one bedroom. While it was very clean and well located, the "one bedroom" consisted of a murphy bed in the corner of the room. Upon arriving at the apartment there was also no dish soap and no toilet paper, so we had to go out and buy our own.
Upon leaving the building everyday to go about our business we were continuously asked by the doorman where we were staying, who were we staying with, etc., It made for an uncomfortable experience every time we left the building or came back. The rooftop bar was also not accessible as it required a key card from the hotel to enter.
He also requests that you pick up and drop off the apartment key at a ups store nearby, but it's closed on Sundays. This made our checkout significantly more stressful than necessary, as we left on a Sunday.
Justin's place was awesome. Right down town and close to everything! Would definitely stay there again. :)
The condo looked exactly like the pictures, and was very spacious. My group and I had a very comfortable stay. We took advantage of the kitchen and linens provided which was convenient. However, be wary of the concierge desk in the lobby - this condo is not meant for short term vacation rentals and they blocked us out from using any of the amenities listed (pool in particular) so do not expect to be able to use those facilities. Other than that we had a very nice stay in this condo.
The location is as advertised and is excellent. Convenient and lots to do. The building is beautiful and the condo is stylish. A couple of issues issues however. The pool was under repair while we were there, and while our host said he would compensate us for the inconvenience, he never did. The main bed is acceptably comfortable but the pull out is horrendous. Also, with only one key fob for the main door or pool, it is difficult to coordinate with more than two people.
We were a group of four friends and stayed at Justin place in November 2012. The apartment is great and has style, the neighborhood is really nice and quite near to city center. You can reach spadina and blue jays within minutes and a rail bus runs on the side street.
There are some places to eat around there, mostly american cousine.
Everything was cleaned and as shown in the pictures. A wonderful thing is the shower!!! big, hot, and confortable!!!!!
The people of the concierge were really nice and helpful. We never got to meet Justin, it was like staying in an hotel but with kitchen and privacy (and wooden floor!)
Overall I would advise to couples or families to stay here.
