The space is in a three story home with large trees. It will be exceptionally clean when you arrive. The space accommodates 1-3 guests comfortably. Two on the queen size bed in the bedroom, one person on the pull out couch comfortably in the separate room. The apartment has it's own separate entrance, is a lower level, with LED lighting and a window in every main room. The bedroom is separate with a queen size bed. All linens and organic cotton sheets are available for your stay. It has an eating area, kitchen and living room with excellent super comfortable easy flip, double bed and foam topper. The laundry is your own. We have a modern high chair, pack-in -play with bedding, and kids car booster age 5-9. There is Netflix and Internet for your enjoyment. The kitchen is fully equipped. We don't have a microwave as we try and live simply. We live on the top two floors and are very available to help with any questions or with getting around Toronto. If there is anything missing just ask and we will provide. We are upstairs getting ready for work from 7:30am-8:15 am. Mon-Fri . The house is sound insulated in the floor, however some sounds are inevitable. We are conscious of this and are quiet. Arriving late at night? No problem-You enter on your own with push button codes on the outside. If you would like food from our local Butcher and prepared food place, "Roast", put into your fridge, you may go onto their website, pre-order with Ben, and we will have the food waiting you in your fridge. He gives a deal on the food, and we charge a small fee for delivery, but it's a small convenience to having a meal ready made, or ready for you to cook in your fridge. We are close to St. Clair and Bathurst or St. Clair and Christie. Unfortunately we cannot have guests use "Dove" hair or body products, as one of us is highly allergic to one of the ingredients. We are sorry for this inconvenience, and will have natural hair and body products available from our local health food store.
We will try and meet you upon arrival. There is a code for the exterior door, which will be provided when you book and you can always enter on your own, and a key on the inside for the front door to the apartment. This location will also be provided when you book.
