The location was so convenient and everything went exactly as planned, always the best result when traveling! Marla
I lived in this house for 3 months and the description of the house is accurate. the house is located in a very convenient area of Toronto with only a few minutes walking distance to various shopping places for everyday living. A bus stop of TTC is just beside the front door. The bus route leads to the St. Clair West subway station which is only 5 to 10 minutes walk if you prefer. there is also a very beautiful park within 5 minutes walk. you can do anything, walking, running, biking, playing sport games, etc. the house is equiped with everything and you dont need to buy anything extra for everyday living. Melissa, the land lord is very quick at replying to my inquiries. Her father also showed up many times helping with the maintance works of the house. they are all very kind and nice persons. Wishing you, yor father, and your family a happy and healthy life.
Thanks Michael!! I hope that all goes well for you in the next year. I know it will! :)
Keep in touch.
We stayed in Melissa's home for a month and had a great time! It is very cozy and well equipped, including BBQ, washer/dryer, DVD player, books and as a bonus a lovely back yard. Ideally located with several parks, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants within 10-15 minute walking distance. Bus stop right in front of the house! TTC takes you downtown within 20 minutes or so. Lovely (chic) neighbourhood to go for a walk. Plenty of things to do with your toddler (at least during summer...) like little pools in the parks and free entertainment at the public library.
What makes it extra pleasant is the enthusiastic and helpful guidance of Melissa. She happily provides you with information and tips and replies your email often within hours! Her dad Paul is also great, he flies in when needed to fix problems and even mows the lawn for you. Together they make your stay a pleasant and relaxed one. We highly recommend Melissa's place for your time in this lovely city!
Melissa was really to deal with and even could speak a bit of french! The apartment was perfectly located for what we needed. Beautiful view and very comfortable. We'll definitely come back!
Thank you!! Avec plaisir.
I stayed in Melissa's apartment for 3 months and I had a very pleasant stay.
The apt is cosy and clean, equipped with everything I needed. I felt at home the whole time.
The basement is well-situated in a nice and safe area, within walking distance to the bus stop and the St. Clair West subway station.
Melissa is a great and caring host.
I would be happy to stay here again in my next visit to Toronto.
I recommend this apartment even for longer stays.
What a wonderful stay! Melissa has done a wonderful job of making her place feel like a home away from home. We stayed for a month while between moving houses and have only great things to say about Melissa and her place.
The place is in a great location, conveniently located close to transit. As this was our old neighbourhood we loved revisiting all the lovely restaurants and cafes in the area as well as trying out some of the new additions to the neighbourhood. The lovely cedarvale ravine is only a short 5 minute walk and great for getting some outdoor space in the city.
Melissa is always available to answer any questions and deal with any issues that may arise. It is obvious how much she cares about your stay. Thank you for making our transition so easy!
I had a wonderful time staying here and would definitely recommend this apartment and Melissa as a host.
Melissa is an amazing host, so kind and helpful. Melissa was so friendly and welcoming she was always willing to help with information about the area, the city and answer any other questions I had. I felt very at home in the apartment and the area and feel I have made a wonderful new friend in Melissa.
The apartment is beautiful and ideally situated to explore the city, the subway is only a 10 minute walk away and the bus stops almost right outside the door. Everything I needed was in the apartment and I especially enjoyed having a garden to sit in during the sunny summer.
The area the apartment is in is very nice with lots of different shops and cafés to explore (I would recommend Dutch Dreams for ice cream), there is also a large supermarket at the subway station. Downtown Toronto is only a short subway ride away and Casa Loma is within walking distance. Yorkdale mall is only 4 subway stops away and has lots of shops as well as restaurants and a cinema.
I have had an amazing summer here in Toronto there is so much to see and do, I would recommend taking a bus tour of the city and making a visit to the distillery district. If you enjoy shopping the eaton centre has lots of shops and on Bloor Street West you will find some of the more high end shops such as Tiffany and Prada.
I really cannot praise this apartment or Melissa as a host enough, really made my stay in the city fantastic. I will certainly be looking to stay here again on my next visit to Toronto. Absolutely amazing.
Thank you (website hidden)
Anyone who loves tea is a friend of mine. :)
Thanks Helen for such a wonderful review. You are welcome any time.
Melissa is very wonderful and nice. We have been living in Toronto by a month and we had a good experience. She is very helpful, polite and smiling. The apartment is very cozy and equipped. All in all, I would highly recommend this place to anyone hoping to visit Toronto!
I stayed in Melissa's apartment for 2 months. It was a wonderful stay and I have nothing but positive things to say. Melissa was a great host. She was responsive to any concerns that I had and she made sure that my stay was as pleasant as possible!
The apartment is located in a nice area, within walking distance to the subway station and to many different supermarkets and restaurants. I was staying there by myself and always felt very safe. The apartment is clean and has all the essentials.
I would definitely stay in Melissa's apartment again!!!
Thanks Gio! You are always welcome at Vaughan.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Melissa's beautiful house for the duration of one month. We have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Melissa's. The accommodation was beyond what we had hoped for. We really got to enjoy the neighborhood. There is lots of cute shops and restaurants within walking distance. Some of my favourites include:
Dutch Dreams- Best place to go for ice cream. They have huge selection of cones, and everything is topped off with fresh fruit and whipped cream. They also serve Dutch Pancakes, something I never got to try but they look amazing!
CocoaLatte- Fantastic specialty coffees, light lunches and dessert bar. The atmosphere is very cute and cozy.
Pizza e Pazzi- A great Italian place with delicious food and modern atmosphere. It can get pretty busy here on weekends.
We felt really comfortable staying at Melissa's house. She provided us with everything we could possibly need and was always reachable if we needed to contact her.
We also got to meet her dad during our stay, and he was also always available to help with anything we might need. We really enjoyed the few times we met him, he is a fun character and very pleasant to talk with.
I would love to stay at Melissa's place again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the heart of Toronto
Melissa and her family were excellent guests. They were promt, courteous and kept the house as clean as the day they arrived.They were well prepared and easy to communicate with. I would be more than happy to host Melissa and her family any time in the future. I can vouch for their respectful manner and am sure they would be a delight to any host in the future.
Melissa was a terrific guest and I would definitely recommend her to anyone on Airbnb and would love to have her again in the future. The apartment was in an immaculate condition when she and her family left and it was as if no one had stayed at all!
Thanks guys. We really had a great time in Boston. Hope to stay with you again!
It was a delight to host Melissa and her husband. They were both respectful guests, intriguing folks and now, new friends! If you have the chance to host, please do!
Melissa was a great guest! She was caring and sweet. We were so glad she decided to stay with us, and we are excited about hosting her again!
Unfortunately I was not there while Mehdi and Melissa were at our place but I would assure they're kind and respectful.
Home was left as tidy and clean as we left it, we could not really wish any better guests then that.
Well Melissa booked for her Parents so I can say I very much enjoyed meeting them ! Communication was great and the flat was left all in good shape.
This apartment was perfect for our needs. My wife and I were in the Toronto region for a few months, and we wanted something small, furnished, parking available, and near public transport and shopping. The apartment Ms. Jacot rented to us fulfilled all expectations. The one-bedroom apartment also had cooking dishes, a good stove and fridge, and television. Internet was reliable and fast. The apartment was cool and pleasant on warm days, and generally warm on cold days. It was rather cold for a few days, but once we reported it to the landlady, the situation was corrected immediately.
Although in a quiet neighbourhood, the apartment is within easy walking distance of supermarkets, greengrocers and convenience stores. Parking is free and secure.
My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend this apartment.
Melissa has a beautiful basement in Toronto, this place has been my home for 5 months, she was a great and considered person, the place is really confortable for people who arrive in Canada like me only with a suitcase, because she provide everything about utilities.The basement looks like a really apartment has (website hidden) the place is bright and warm.Melissa is a kind and avaible person for help in eventually and unexpected (email hidden)anks for eveything Melissa.
Melissa was great. My sister and I stayed in her basement apartment for over a month. Everything in the place was as it was in the pictures. Melissa was easy to contact and always willing to help with anything we needed. She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay in Canada.
Melissa is a lovely person and I would definitley recommend staying with her.
Melissa is a wonderfully friendly and engaging person who cares about her guests and about making their stay at her home the best it can be. I got to know Melissa during the time my son was staying in her basement suite as part of his work experience. As a mom I was worried about him being away from home in the "big city" of Toronto on his own but she immediately put my fears to rest and promised to keep an eye out for him. My son appreciated her approachability by text, email and in person if he had any questions while at the same time enjoying a private, comfortable home away from home. During my holidays I got to visit Melissa's delightful apartment as well. It was a pleasant, relaxing experience and included some nice chats with Melissa in her garden. I highly recommend Melissa as your host whether you plan on staying for a short or long stay in Toronto. The house (she also rents out the main floor from time to time) is located a 5 minute bus ride or 10 minute walk from St. Clair West station providing easy access to downtown Toronto and is a leisurely walk away from Casa Loma. Convenience stores are located nearby and an amazing 24-hour Loblaws is located at St. Clair West Station. With experience in the hospitality industry and a love for Toronto, Melissa is a wonderful wealth of knowledge about what to see and do in Toronto and surrounding area. I highly recommend Melissa as your host for both short and long term stays.
